Recommended Posts

Anyway..All is not lost, ...the trailer after that was "Fracture" Antony Hopkins at his best as a calculating murderer.

Its 13 years ol----and a great movie if you haven't see it, the pirates still have lots of activity on it . Quick download

Remakes of British series in US are very rarely good. Adding wokeness to the slow burn Brit style is a recipe for disaster. I'm not sure I can name any that worked, although there must have been one or two.

As expected. Now fans of the originals usually don't care for remakes anyway. And other things being equal, an audience member will likely prefer a familiar environment: awesome white wigs, for example, in Law & Order UK over actual hair or baldness in Law & Order.

 

But these American remakes are generally considered to have worked better. Sometimes the underlying quality is about the same, but the American series add in a lot more. 

 

House of Cards
The Office
Shameless
American Idol
Whose Line Is It Anyway?
Three's Company
Sanford and Son
Veep
Lotsa Luck
Secret Millionaire
Being Human

 

Not that I liked any of these except the earlier seasons of House Of Cards, but they were all popular w/ the masses.

 

And then--watch your knickers--there actually are some Brit remakes of American series that are generally regarded as inferior to the originals.

 

Days Like These
Married for Life
Brighton Belles
Nobody's Perfect
In with the Flynns

 

But we can agree the present era is probably the worst for remakes. That's been evident for a few years now. It'd be nice to have hope for the new Dune or Battlestar Galactica, but--no. We'll see.

I started watching Ratchet on Netflix. Looks good after first two episodes. And to answer my own question, no, it doesn't seem to be connected to One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest, although being an origin story, that might pop up later.

Just watched Ep 1, predictable story so far does it get better?

I'm only on episode 3 now as wife started watching and wants to watch together. That's rare. Yes, it's getting better, but no real surprises, just well flowing story.

Almost a three year wait. Comedian Chris Rock and Gomorra mob boss Salvatore Esposito, different for sure.

Watched that one a few times myself. Also I enjoyed Burt's last western...Cattle Annie and Little Britches.

Burt has obviously made lots of movies, another one that comes to mind is " The Train (1964)"

 

https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0059825/?ref_=nv_sr_srsg_5

 

In 1944, a German colonel loads a train with French art treasures to send to Germany. The Resistance must stop it without damaging the cargo

 

:thumbsup:
