I'm anxiously awaiting the remake of Peter Jackson's King Kong. though I'm a staunch advocate against remakes, especially where they concern good films. Eisner's rework might not be so bad if he is planning to go the route of Carpenter's The Thing or Ridley Scott's Alien. If he makes it a tame rendition, then I think he needs to trussed up on Hollywood Boulevard and allow passerbyers to pelt him with rotten fruit, feces and whatever else they feel so inclined to peg him with. Remakes that turn out as good, or better than the originals are few and far between.
The Creature is far and away my favorite Universal Monster, so I've always
viewed the remake talk as a double edged sword.
Great to see on the big screen, on the one hand:
Remakes SUCK, on the other.
I guess we'll have to wait and see how they **** this one up.
