Some things could never be remakes,
How about Charlie's Angels..35 ??
or Rocky 96 ???
Is there any new and inspiring even entertaining material out in Hollywood anymore?
Is there any new original material which can survive the marketplace on writing, acting, producing, directing skills....without depending heavily on special effects??
I do not find computerized special effects to be a good substitute for the above man made skills.
Nor do I find a heavy reliance on fighting and action a good substitute for olde fashioned drama.
I think Alfred Hitchcock movies spoiled me in this arena. He did all his stuff with camera angles and light/shadow manipulation. It took me some time to realize his genius.
The last movie I enjoyed was a movie with Matt Damon..about a guy who could see into people just by touching them.
While I am not a Matt Damon fan, I recognized by this that Matt Damon was an actor who could be flexible in his roles ..not just an action type actor like Stallone.
I think the movie was called..."Hereafter."
It was the same with his role in "True Grit" though I did not like the move at all. But Matt showed himself to be not a stereotyped actor as is Stallone and John Wayne.
I can admire this.
One of the worst movies/DVDs of recent which I sat through is a move called " Machete."
