Remake Hell:A New "Karate Kid" Leaves Its Original Writer Wondering

Yet another remake of an '80's signature film, "The Karate Kid", is a vehicle for Will Smith's son, Jaden,  and the original writer, Robert Mark Kamen, is wondering like the rest of us nostalgic '80s fans why.


from LA Times

"It’s weird to have your films remade in your lifetime," says screenwriter Robert Mark Kamen, who has watched an Internet backlash against trailers for the June movie. "Two-thirds of the comments out there are negative: 'Why are you remaking this classic?' 'It was the movie of my childhood.' 'It was my inspirational movie.' 'Why are you remaking it? Just because Jaden is a little rich kid?’ I’m wondering if those people are going to go see it."

Remake Hell: 'Red Dawn' Redo Rankles Milius

Hollywood's obsession with remakes continues and this time the writer and director of the original '80's movie Red Dawn, John Milius is none too pleased.


from LA Times

"I think it’s a stupid thing to do. The movie is not very old," said Milius, who’s not involved in the new film but was given a chance to read the new script. "It was terrible. There was a strange feeling to the whole thing. They were fans of the movie, so they put in stuff they thought was neat. It’s all about neat action scenes and has nothing to do with story."

'Hurt Locker' Reigns on Oscar Night

LA Times

Everyone wants the chance to dream, and if Sunday night's Oscar results are any indication, the people who work in the dream factory most of all.
It takes away nothing from "The Hurt Locker," which really was the best film of the year, or the exceptional directing job done by Kathryn Bigelow, to speculate that more than the acknowledgment of excellence was behind that film's triumph in the hotly contested best picture race.
