    Oh...I'll touch yer showgirls...

    But no, I like McWeeney as a critic but he seems a little harsh on this subject. The things he points out actually seem rather clever to me with the whole Mark1/Mark2/etc, and the call out to "i'll buy that for a dollar". I still have great hopes for this.

    Are they remaking Showgirls too? Who is the current version of Jessica Spano? :P

    I am going back on forth on the Robocop remake, first I wanted to throw up, and then after reading stuff here, I go to being cautiously optimistic, and now.... ugh!

    Flesh & Blood? I've Seen that, lol! I think Verhoeven & Hauer worked together in Holland.

    Haha! They can make make an American remake of Verhoeven's recent Blackbook because not enough people saw it because it had them subtitles.

    No, thankfully.

    Have you seen that? I have a copy, but I haven't watched it yet.

    Yeah, I think...was it Soldier of Orange? I think if you go into the Robocop remake/re-imagining completely open minded you may have a better chance of liking it. It is clearly going to be different while constantly reminding people of what came before it(maybe a mistake). I think that Padiha has more of a political agenda which can't hurt in differentiating things. All speculation at this point. I know the cast is strong and the choice of director was inspired...it could go either way. But until I hear what people have watched as opposed to read I will be optimistic. McWeeney could have been reading an earlier draft of the screenplay...who knows. He did say that once it started telling a story it had a story to tell, but he claims it was too little too late. So, rewrites/reshoots/editing...it's just too early to condemn a movie that hasn't even STARTED filming yet.
