Let's all collectively pray

Let's all collectively pray that they don't!

I'm looking forward to the remake about as much as I'm looking forward to contracting AIDS.

Well hopefully if you play

Well hopefully if you play your cards right at the movie theater,you'll kill two birds with one stone!!

Seriously though,did you see the trailer? This may be the worst remake since Godzilla.

Well, ya bastich, ya peaked

Well, ya bastich, ya peaked my curiosity...and I watched it!

You're absolutely right: this looks so damn horrendous, it may actually top the American Godzilla movie as the worst remake in history.

Thanks, Hollywood.

About the trailer

My father's pretty excited about that little half-a-second clip of Gort's eye-beam near the end of the trailer (he even had me take a screenshot and print it for him, to show one of his friends at work).

BUT, he's also very worried that they're going to screw up Gort something awful. He fears greatly that they will ruin the simplicity of his form.

Not having seen the original, I won't be able to say which is a better movie, but it'll still piss me off to see a classic ruined. Especially one of my dad's favorite movies.

As for something good about the trailer...I really like the music. Heh.

Bah! You guys are all too

Bah! You guys are all too cynical. The trailer doesn't look that bad. I'm willing to give it a chance.

Oh, I agree it doesn't look

Oh, I agree it doesn't look like that bad a movie. It looks pretty cool, in fact! But you know there are people out there who, even if it's the greatest movie ever made, will hate it because it's not an exact copy of the original...

Me, personally, I'm not like that. Example: I really enjoyed the new "Transformers"!

Gort and Klaatu

Great review, NekroDave!

My father loves this movie and he wants these figures, however he doesn't dare spend that much money, for fear of what my mother would have to say about it! I'd help him out and get them for him, but that's a lot of money for me, too.

Gort and Klaatu

Thanks very much. I'm glad you liked it and it's neat to hear that you're dad in interested in them! I say you guys need to go halves on it. ;)
