Why does Hollywood produce remakes of perfectly good original films? Waste of effort.

Remake is OK
John Carpenters original is the real deal! But this remake is not bad at all. I enjoyed it - but nowhere near the original.

Why have the pictures and reviews for the remake (2005)? silly people. The one on tv is the original - yay !!! call yourselves a tv 'guide'??

Stupid website is showing the posts and ratings for the remake. They don't seem to undertand that there is 2 films with the same title. The one showing tonight (May 7th 2011) is the superb original by John Carpenter not the poor remake.

dreadful remake
weak, bland version of a true classic, waste of time & film, go get yourself the carpenter original and skip this altogether. imagine Tchaikovsky's 1812 played on a pocket bomtempi with pea shooters for cannons, or the latest Lamborghini turning out to be the Toyota prius, yes, it's that bad a remake.

Plotholes a plenty!
Where exactly did that forest spring from? No US city has a forest that thick right in the middle of it, surely?! Also, WW3 is breaking out in the city - wouldn't someone have raised the alarm, even if it is the middle of the night. Numerous other plotholes here, but I really can't be arsed. What a pile this remake is! Anyone with any sense should stick with the (classic) original.

Problem solved
I'd really like to watch this film, however I really do want to go out & get bladdered. If I watch the film I will regret not going out; if I drink enough I won't remember I missed a film.
