Dick Ward writes "Ah remakes. Remaking an old film is a great way to make a movie without having to put a lot of effort into it. We’ve seen a few already this year, and there are plenty more on the way, including ‘Escape from New York,’ ‘Arthur,’ ‘The Birds,’ ‘Clue’ and even ‘They Live.’
“Dick,” you say, “why would you even think about encouraging the already remake-crazy film industry to do more?” Even if you don’t say that, let’s pretend for the sake of narrative.
“Well,” says I, “have you considered that even the worst movie may have a cool premise but suffer from poor execution?”
Some movies absolutely need to be remade, and these are they."
