    I think it would be great to see a remake as long as it retained some of the "innocence" of the original.
    Too high tech would spoil it for me.

    actually, i heard (granted, take this with a grain of salt as it's just hearsay) that they ARE remaking Willy Wonka and that Nic Cage is going to play willy wonka.

    Nicholas Cage as Willy Wonka?

    That's just wrong. Please say you're joking.

    i loved the books... charlie and the chocolate factory and charlie and the great glass elevator. read them when i was very young as well...

    and as i heard the nic cage as wonka rumor a long time ago (a year at least) and nothing has come to fruition, it was probably JUST a rumor.

    by the by... i loved ocean's 11, the remake. they are about to start filming "ocean's 12." i HATED the remake of Psycho. the first was so freakin' scary... couldn't get any better than that and i just didn't believe vince vaughn as norman bates... didn't fit to me.

    Some of the choices for remakes just baffle me. "Gone in Sixty Seconds"? Who came up with the bright idea of remaking that movie? Although I doubt there are many out there who feel that a remake violated the sacred memory of such a cherished classic ! Anyway, regarding remakes of my beloved Seven Samurai, I enjoy The Magnificent Seven and A Bug's Life (although I confess to not having seen Battle Beyond the Stars).
    Willie Wonka sounds promising, as long as they don't make it too impersonal and mechanical with CGIs and such.

    I'm probably very conservative (today's understatement! ), but I don't see the need for re-makes at all. I really don't know of a single remake where the original hasn't been better than the re-make. Nikita, The Seven Samurais, and Vanilla Sky for example...

    I think the time has come for a remake of the greatest movie of all time...

    I refer of course to Caddyshack.

    Now I didn't see the remake of Psycho, but I thought the most ridiculous part of the remake was the apparent insistence on each shot of the remake matching each shot of the original. At that point, it's not even a remake, but a rehash. That's just plain stupid. I like Vince Vaughn and everything, but - holy $#!!+ - what a waste.
    When you're ten years old and a car drives by and splashes a puddle of water all over you, it's hard to decide if you should go to school like that or try to go home and change and probably be late. So while he was trying to decide, I drove by and splashed him again. - Jack Handey
