What’s next? Are they going to repaint the Mona Lisa?

There are some things that should be left well enough alone. Roadhouse is perhaps the best bad movie ever. Remaking it is, well, just wrong! Who would even suggest such a thing? Do you know how that pitch meeting should’ve gone? Something like this:

Pitch guy: “So we are thinking about remaking Roadhouse…”

Studio executive: “Get the hell out of my office!”

The idea of remaking a cult movie is about a dumb as it gets. Cult movies were BAD movies that came together in just the right way to be ironically entertaining. It's like trying to a catch lightning bolt with another lightning bolt.

There are scores of bad movies that you could redo and potentially get a huge hit. It's been done, a good example is the Lord of the Rings. As a rule, stay away from anything Swayze related or did Point Break teach them nothing?

there is a whole industry based on boomer nostalgia. prolly a measureable component of gdp. an entire family guy episode is dedicated to lois trying to break peter of his constant 'living in the 80s' demeanor.
pretty funny. i don't begrudge any producer bringing that hokum to market, as they are just trying to make a living. still boring, tho.

apparently here, no one noticed that one of those newer entrants into the tv biznatch is remaking an outstanding program that's not from the ice age - Leverage. cuz it's good. the 'arm' in that program would easily kick patricks butt.

I categorize Road House as the worst movie I've seen the most times. An absolute classic. I am heartbroken. Jake Gyllenhall as Dalton. , Mary and Joseph....

Asked about his qualifications to replace Patrick Swayze in this epic film Gyllenhaal replied “uh, I was in Donnie Darko with him?”
