I was listening to Dee Snider's Fangoria radio tonight. He and Anthony Timpone were discussing upcoming remakes that have been greenlighted, with the most barftastic (in my eyes) being the re-remake of The Thing.
Gee, can't wait to see all those great effects redone with shitty CGI. :rolleyes:

I really don't get all that upset about remakes anymore. I won't see The Thing remake and I still have the original

Latte has a good approach, hahaha.

I follow something similar, I pretty much ignore it. If it's not a remake I care to see, I don't see it, talk about it, etc.

Reminds me of a Tales from the Crypt episode, "IGNORE IT, IGNORE IT, IGNORE IT!"
Damnit, Beavis, put that away. You're not supposed to have your penis out when you're cooking.

I had to ask, are you referring to the original 1951 film or John Carpenter's "original remake"? :D I'm not sure about this one. If nothing else I'll see it just to see how it turns out. I recall a few years back there was talk circulating about a planned sequel to Carpenter's remake (around the time the video game came out). Does anyone know if it is still in the works or has it been axed?
