Got a mate who spooges over all things Alien and the trailer hit the right notes, sort of.

I guess I'm jaded and old!
Count me in as one of them who jisms over anything to do with the Alien Universe.

I saw Alien when I was around 11 years old with my Mum at a friend's house across the road. We left around 11pm and I still remember both Mum and me gripping each other like we were about to fall off a cliff and scampered back over the road to our house, got in and immediately locked all the doors and turned on every light we could find.

Dad being Dad could not understand how we could be so scared after watching a film on the TV as it is not real, bless him.

So despite some favourable reviews, it appears according to IMDB and most people who've seen it, the new remake of Road House is actually garbage and not worth the effort.

Anyone surprised about this?

I watched it last night, was on my lappy at the same time, just didn't touch the original imo. The baddy was a fucking comedian and the fight scenes were like something out of that shitty American wrestling thing (even worse than ours but at least we had Big Daddy and Giant Haystacks).

Suspected so - there should be a rule in Hollywood, all remakes should be killed with fire before they get out of the production meeting.

PS I don't consider Dune a remake, more of a reinterpretation of a book, with less weird.

Yeah, it's some MMA shit in the new one, whereas it should be a dude bust'in heads.

Does (s)he rate it @Overdriven?

Honestly not asked - I only knew it was coming out because of a LinkedIn message where he announced that he worked on it. (He also did Expendables 4) - It's probably not going to be rated by him as it's not his choice of style, but work is work innit.

Expendables 4 was an abomination. :(

(the colouring looked fine though, he stayed within the lines and everything)
