    Argh, remakes. I think Spielberg got the rights to release a Ghost in the Shell live action movie. Hopefully he'll leave the original well alone and concentrate the abuse on the Stand Alone Complex.

    Just to put things back on topic...

      It isn't Bennings!
      If I'm an ass, I should say so. If I don't, somebody else will. If I say it first, that disarms them.

        But I've known Bennings for years. He's my friend!

          Yeah, but if it had more time to finish it would have looked and sounded and acted just like Bennings!

          Dammit, beaten to it! :C

                Let's just hope it doesn't turn out like Rob Zombie's Halloween...

                  To be fair, Rob Zombie's Halloween was a remake.

                  The Thing movie that's about to be released is in fact a PREQUEL, showcasing the events of the Norwegian research team, PRIOR to the events of The Thing.

                  I'm actually glad it's a prequel. If they **** it up, the original remains untarnished.


                  One more thing. Since we're on the subject of remakes, let's remember they're not all bad. After all, The Thing is a remake of The Thing From Another World.

                    Yes, theoretically it is a remake, but puts an entirely different spin on it to an extent it's questionable whether to call it a remake or not.
