John Lithgow is the new Jud Crandall.
Good casting, but I question the need for a remake.
After all, sometimes dead...is better.
Once they saw the "IT", remake work, every other studio sees dollar signs.
How Hollywood goes.
I’m not sure this needs to be..um.. resurrected.
remakes are fine if original is missing something and can be improved on. But this is a classic and great the way it is - I don't see the need for a remake to be honest. But yes, dollars are the reason but still.....this is pathetic.
If that line isn't in every single negative review, I'll be shocked.
It's deliberately misspelled because the cemetary is built by children, and that's how they spelled the sign.
Watch the movie.
I question the need for a movie in the first place.
you don't think the original is a classic?
You and I obviously have very different ideas of what a "classic" is.
The movie sucked compared with the book.
Which is interesting, because I enjoyed Kubrick's The Shining much better than the King novel.
I'm odd that way.
Oh no, The Shining is one of the scariest books I ever read - but the movie is frickin hilarious.
Unless you're some kind of special effects/production values fanatic (or have no imagination) most horror/science fiction books are much better than the movies based on them. For the simple reason that world building is much easier on the written page rather than onscreen.
The new Winston Churchill (AKA "Church")
They found a cat who looks more like the one on the novel cover.
Damn, he's got a great angry looking little face too!
Zelda. Creepy. As. Fuck.
It will be hard to improve how creepy that bitch was.
Better have as the theme....
I always felt bad for Zelda. All she did was get spinal meningitis and have a horrible death, and yet she's played for creepiness.
I always thought her creepy version represented the sin of her parent's neglect.
Wait, what? Hilarious?!?
My favorite re-cut Shining trailer...
Yes, and the warped perceptions of her young sister. But still, poor Zelda doesn't get a lot of sympathy.
Don't consider it a remake, consider it another movie version of the book.
Yes, you're right.
Charlie and the Chocolate Factory isn't a remake of Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory, it's a new take on the original material.
The original had an eccentric Willy Wonka, the remake had a homicidal Willy Wonka. I liked the homicidal one better.
And trailer #1.
Good trailer! But, ya know, good trailer doesn't mean good movie. I have hopes, tho. It IS one of his scariest books.
