Thanks, Atom!

"Though I would like to see the character get a 21st century reboot myself."

You'll get your wish! But am I excited? Nah. I've never really gotten into remakes...

I have to admit though, I randomly caught De Niro in Mary Shelley's Frankenstein on tv the other day. Not too shabby...but I actually found TNT's 1992 tv production of Frankenstein to be my favorite telling of this story. I know, I know...Randy Quaid??? Seriously, if you're a Franky fan, check out this incarnation of the story. It's smoking.

...Okay, now that I've completely hosed my own argument against remakes in general, let me modify my previous statement: I've never gotten into most remakes! So, will I go see the Creature remake? Probably...but only because it's the Gill-Man we're talking about here. I don't have high hopes for a good film, though...just look what they did to poor Imhotep in '99's The Mummy...
