Snake Plissken ? I Thought You Were Dead...

Why oh Why must Hollywood continually tamper with perfection ?

I have read that they are going to remake "Escape From New York", one of the two greatest
B-action/adventure/sci-fi/thriller movies ever !!(DeathRace 2000 being the other, of course)

Why would they do this ? They cannot improve on perfection. They should not even try. How can you hope to top a movie that has Adrienne Barbeau AND Ernest Borgnine in it ?Not to mention Lee Van Cleef, Harry Dean Stanton and Isaac Hayes !!

The movie has a great actor(Kurt Russel) doing his greatest work in it( "Big Trouble In Little China" runs a close second).

It has one of the all time greatest catchphrases, also used as the title of this post.

This is more blasphemous than Peter Jackson's remake of King Kong, or a remake of Citizen Kane.

"when I get back, I'm going to kill you."- Snake Plissken

I wish they would remake bad movies and leave the good ones alone.

Did you get my reply email the other day?

That's what I'm sayin.
I did get your e-mail. Thank you. I've been meaning to e-mail you back, and I have not had a chance.
