Not Another Re-make?!

Mary Poppins now!
There are millions of books out there, hundreds of millions of stories and they make films of films!
I know they probably think they have a sure thing by re-making old favourites but surely there are just as good unseen films to be made!

What say you?

Re: Not Another Re-make?!

Obviously Hollywood and others have run out of ideas so are churning out inferior (usually) `re-imaginings` (another name for a blatant copy). A great many of the recent horror stories are plagiarised versions of Japanese horror movies for example.

If the original film is good, why bother making it again?

I'm tired of remakes. They never seem to be as good as the first one. And often have some politically correct agenda behind them.

Re: Not Another Re-make?!

I never bothered to watch the first Mary Poppins Twiz, even when they were screaming out itís merits, but it was indeed a very popular and profitable film, and profit is what itís all about, perhaps they think they can clean up on a new version again.
My son and me (heís another horror fan like me) were talking about the terrible horror films they are now producing, not a bit original.
I always wondered why they never remade this old horror film, it has a great story and Iím sure it would be a winner today, it can be watched on tube.

ďThe Man Who Changed His Mind" is a 1936 British science fiction horror film starring Boris Karloff and Anna Lee. It was directed by Robert Stevenson and was produced by Gainsborough Pictures. The film was also known as The Brainsnatcher or The Man Who Lived AgainĒ Wiki.

It's not a remake, it's a sequel. There were several Mary Poppins books, not just the one. Panic over.

Don't you lot know anything??!!

It's not a remake.

It's a follow up... 20 years later, the children are grown-up, and magical mysterious Mary Poppins returns to Depression-era London to visit Jane and her brother Michael, now a father of three, and helps them rediscover the joy they knew as children.

It looks fabulous and I for one can't wait to see it!

I suggest an OFF outing for FUN to cheer everyone up and get rid of the grumps and cynics!

It must be easier not to bother looking something up or actually reading an article about something before jumping to a conclusion, eh!

Re: Not Another Re-make?!

I'd rather be tortured on the rack, than have to sit through a Mary Poppins movie, of whatever vintage
