Re: 'Tron: Legacy' team mount a 'Black Hole' remake

Always loved the concept and the eerie and atmospheric setting of the original movie. Unfortunately the writing, characters, and robots all felt like they came out of a cornball 1950s scifi movie. Could never quite figure that out. It's like two movies from completely different eras got jammed together somehow. lol

Well, considering that it was Disney's first attempt to make a more adult-oriented movie than the kind they were used to doing, it makes sense that the end result would have that kind of hybrid quality.

How soon before someone says, "I want to remake Revenge of the Nerds IV. Not the first one; the fourth one only"?
Was that the one with Booger's wedding or the one when Louis shuns his nerd roots? I guess I could imdb it, but...

I'm kind of ashamed to say I've seen them all.. RotN II had it's subtle charms, but III and IV were just beyond awful.

YES! They HAVE to bring back the original score, which was the best thing about that movie (although I do love the movie itself).
Absolutely, that gothic music makes the opening scenes up until the point where they land on the Cygnus one of my favourites in sci fi! Admittedly, I watched it as a young boy but it was the first major sci fi movie I saw where some of the main characters ended up dead - so I loved it. VINCENT was no Muffet 2 but he was pretty cool to a kid.

Unfortunately, many modern remakes seem to have lost the ability to generate suspense. I watched the remake of the Andromeda Strain - it was really workmanlike and they replaced the credible middle-aged scientists with a bunch of 25-35 year old good looking men and women.

The remake of Assault on Precinct 13 was pretty good though, so it can be done.

Do it.

The world needs a good remake of The Devil Rides Out.

The original is still fun, but it's marred by crappy special effects, and by one of the least convincing Satanic orgies ever filmed.

If you were a studio type offering me money, I'd be on it like a shot.

But...

They already have. It's called "Star Trek".

Other than the one JMS is writing for Joel Silver?

On a related note, we *do* need a movie version of Return To The Forbidden Planet...

Meh, that was my ambition. So much for that, then.
There's always THE CAT FROM OUTER SPACE.
Hm.

Dunno about that.

Now, Warlords Of Atlantis, The Land That Time Forgot, The Devil Rides Out and Horror Express are probably the ones that would vie for being my replacement ambition..
What we REALLY need is for someone with talent to take a new look at UNIDENTIFIED FLYING ODDBALL, a Dennis Dugan classic from the late '70s that featured a pretty cool looking mini-shuttle.

As I recall, that was itself a remake, an updating of Mark Twain's A Confederate Yankee in King Arthur's Court. Indeed, its re-release title was A Spaceman in King Arthur's Court.

I think if you're going to do a remake of Twain's tale, it should be of Twain's tale, without the Disney intrusions.

I'm all for that, but the question is, how will they imperil a little girl this time without pissing moralistic types off?

"Satanism and black magic is bad, m'kay" Doesn't look like a message that would piss off the moralistic types...

I'd say, that if Tron Legacy ends up being any good, it will foster any hope of a Black Hole remake being any good. Ironically enough I ordered Tron Special Edition along with Black Hole recently.
