Re: REboot... REboot....REboot.

Whirrr-CLONK ... whirrr-CLONK ...

What follows is one of the best SF action set pieces in cinema history.

Pulled off WITHOUT CGI.

And on the topic at hand, Alien vs Predator was a double reboot and about as dumb as you'd expect.

I too dislike reboots, and we are not alone.

it has a few bad words.

And space balls got a reboot, in the form a cartoon on G4.
ROFL! I had not seen this one.

Foamy deserves a star in hollywood. He is an epic member of the scene.

That foamy vid came out like two or 3 weeks ago. I think it is the most recent Foamy vid.

Any way, Foamy FTW! His videos were the first youtube play list i ever made.

The Taking of Pelham 1, 2, 3 with Denzel Washington is coming out real soon. I can't say if it's good or not, but definitely should not have been made.
Concur. Just from seeing the ads about it, I think there's no way this is going to live up to the original.

I found a list of the 20 most anticipated movies of 2010......

MANY of them would be considered 'reboots' and while not sci-fi, fantasy or horror, do deserve to be discussed.

What really makes that movie for me is the social satire, in fact the whole thing is satire. I'll bet the reboot totally forgets that.

Regarding Buffy, I read that the producers, not including Joss Whedon, want to do a relaunch of Buffy as a movie. Here's a link to one story:

A Daredevil reboot with Starbuck as Typhoid Mary?

I certainly hope so...

I don't remember if I saw it in this thread or not but I just saw on Google News that Ridley Scott has agreed to direct an Alien Prequel. If this is old news, please forgive me.

Sad, the destruction of the Alien movies will be done, once this film is completed. It should've stopped after Aliens (which is the second film).

No exactly sci-fi but Red Dawn is being remade. I remember seeing the original and thought what an interesting film.

Red Dawn was a great movie. I really think a reboot of that movie would be a flop...

Love the actors, love Holmes but from the previews it's obvious that the Holmes character has been completely subverted to make a period-piece, buddy-cop, action flick -- how's that for genre-bending?

Will be checking it out anyways... sigh.

I just hope they don't go overboard with flashy special effects, since so much is possible with CGI.
I guess I'm just too much a fan of the old-school Harryhausen-effects

A one-of-a-kind effects legend. According to IMDB, they tried to get Harryhausen to consult on the new one, but he adamantly refused. The guy is 89 years old. That could be an indication that they want to be true to his vision, though.

They could make the CGI look exactly like stop-motion if they wanted to, but obviously they're not going that way.

Personally I'm looking forward to it, there just aren't enough monster fights in movies these days, outside of the ridiculous Transformers.

Looks kind of interesting. But in comparing the 1981 vs the 2010 casts, I can't decide yet if the prominence of the cast of the new comes close to that of the old.
