There is a SISTER ACT Remake in the Works

sister-act

If you grew up in the 90s you were likely exposed to the cinematic treasure that is Sister Act. I’m not being sarcastic, this movie has entertained me several times in my life; it’s definitely silly and if you were to watch it now for the first time it might feel a little insane. The

Now They’re Doing B-Movies; THE CRAFT is Being Remade

craft-cast

I’m still waiting to hear they’re remaking Cruel Intentions, or is that next week? Yes, as my panicked wife texts me wondering, it’s true, they’re remaking The Craft. Which is surprising because the original didn’t star males and that’s what’s happening these days isn’t it? I digress. The Craft was watchable and by no means

Ethan Hawke Joins Up with Denzel Washington in THE MAGNIFICENT SEVEN

Ethan Hawke Magnificent Seven

One of my favourite westerns of all time is The Magnificent Seven. It’s a simple story (itself a remake of Kurosawa’s Seven Samurai) of good guys vs bad guys but the incredible cast elevated it to classic status.  Yul Brynner. Steve McQueen. Charles Bronson. Eli Wallach. James Coburn. Robert Vaughn. Brad Dexter. Horst Buchholz.  What

City of Films

Universal Pictures has found a director for its remake of Scarface, The Wrap reports that Chilean director Pablo Larraín is in talks to take on the project.  The remake will update the story to a modern day setting in Los Angeles, so I guess there goes the great soundtrack we had in Pacino’s Scarface.

The Third Trailer For ROBOCOP Finally Gets Me Interested

City of Films

In the end, chances are unfortunately stacked against the upcoming Robocop remake being a good flick but…this new trailer actually got me to take notice and I suppose that’s something. The action looks just as uninteresting and mediocre the other trailers but the beginning is especially nice as it starts things off quietly and gives

City of Films

So this is our 3000th news item, a trailer for the re-make of RoboCop.  Is this an omen or what? The new RoboCop takes place in 2028 and finds OminiCorp putting its drone technology to use by taking blown-apart cop Alex Murphy (Joel Kinnaman) and turning him into a cyborg police officer.  So maybe the
