Remake of the Omen with Julia Styles

ugh ... the original was a great movie, usually sequels suck, they better get some good writers

The original was a friggen classic, it will definately be hard to top.
Also the original Omen has maybe the scariest backround music of any thriller ever.

As much as I enjoyed the original, I am just so tired of these remakes.

Has Hollywood lost all of it's creativity.

Seems that there isn't a creative mind left out there.

Yes. Yes it has. With all of the historical material out there Hollywood could set itself up for years and not have to 'create' a story from scratch. However, it's happy to rehash **** so long as people continue to go out and see it. Trick is, theatres are experiencing some of their worst seasons ever. And I wonder why? Remakes of the Dukes of Hazzard, Charlies Angels, The Longest Yard, etc.

Hollywood needs to buy a clue.

Problem is, Hollywood won't learn from their mistakes, for every Dukes of Hazzard or The Island, they have something like Charlie and the Chocolate Factory that does decent, they probably figure that if they make enough remakes, something will work. Although, to give Bay credit, the Island was a remake of really crappy '70's movie. Mmmm, maybe Hollywoood just needs to stay out of the '70's era altogether.

I'm just cursing the day when they finally breakdown and redo Casablanca.

If there is a film industry dumb enough to do that, its Hollywood. You can count on them to ruin a classic and pump out unoriginal ideas with the worst actors in the world spending 200Million to make these pieces of trash.


Thank you Hollywood.


The only movies i think i will even bother watching are ones directed by Clint Eastwood, at least he picks substance over garbage..all the other directors have sold out big time.

I find Eastwood hit or miss.

I thought Mystic River was undeserving of all the praise it got, and Sean Penn mailed in a lousy performance. But the Oscars tend to praise the critically popular stuff, not necessarily the best. I liked Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil so much more than MR (granted I haven't seen Million Dollar Baby, yet).

Totally agree! I was just about to post the same thing.
