Remakes - again

People are probably tired of hearing me complain but they are at it again!

Next month a remake of The Taking of Pelham 123 is being released. They already did a made-for-TV remake that was a total dud but the new one stars Denzel Washington.

Can’t anybody write new movies anymore? The original Taking of Pelham 123 is truly a classic and one of Walter Matthau’s best performances – maybe his very best, borrow or rent it if you can.

Hollywood is like a well. It dries up sometimes, before it gets refilled again with new ideas.
