You know what Stephen King movie would make for a good remake? Storm of the Century.

@  RedAuthar : (18 November 2017 - 11:09 PM)

Exactly.

@  Shadow : (18 November 2017 - 12:09 PM)

Oh yeah, that was a real masterpiece...

@  RedAuthar : (18 November 2017 - 11:02 AM)

Not really. He was in DOOM the Movie.

@  Shadow : (18 November 2017 - 03:12 AM)

The Rock has come far from his roots of being a PS2 CGI scorpion monster.

@  Shadow : (17 November 2017 - 08:54 PM)

aka the King Kong vs Godzilla prequel

@  RedAuthar : (17 November 2017 - 06:39 PM)

So...Rampage movie.

@  Uncle Ben : (17 November 2017 - 02:58 PM)

Wouldnt take long for Florida. It wouldbe at least 2 years max

@  Quickster : (17 November 2017 - 01:36 AM)

They are working on three Mario theme parks at Universal - one in Japan and two in the US. The Japan one will open in 2020. Don't know about the others.

@  Shadow : (16 November 2017 - 02:16 PM)

A Metroid ride would be great. Go through planet Zebes with Samus as your guide.

@  GamemasterAn... : (16 November 2017 - 07:38 AM)

I heard that as well.

@  Uncle Ben : (15 November 2017 - 07:59 PM)

I thought they were with Universal?

@  Shadow : (15 November 2017 - 05:32 PM)

I think its high time Nintendo opens up their own theme park based off all their franchise series.

@  Quickster : (14 November 2017 - 05:58 PM)

Speaking of movies, Nintendo and Universal are about to strike a deal to make a Mario movie.

@  Shadow : (13 November 2017 - 03:05 AM)

I know too much about movies.

@  Shadow : (13 November 2017 - 03:05 AM)

Just like how New Line axed a new Friday the 13th film this year being made because Rings bombed, so they figured it meant people weren't interested in horror movies and not the fact it sucked.

@  Shadow : (13 November 2017 - 03:04 AM)

Disney testing their brands if their was interest for sci fi films. But I guess after they got Star Wars all that crap went out the window for old IP's under them being revived.

@  RedAuthar : (12 November 2017 - 07:57 PM)

Honestly, why did they make a Tomorrowland movie?

@  Shadow : (11 November 2017 - 11:40 PM)

Well, not only was the second season cancelled despite it winning awards and having a huge fanbase but Disney up and went and axed Tron 3 because Tomorrowland bombed.

@  RedAuthar : (11 November 2017 - 10:53 PM)

I didn't watch Uprising, so I can't be bummed about it. Actually that's why I didn't watch it. So I wouldn't be bummed when the second season doesn't happen

Any thoughts on the new Jumanji remake?

It does little to grab my attention. I'm very skeptical about remakes though. Last one I remember getting excited about was Total Recall and it was a serious let down for me...

Eh. I dun really think it needs a remake. I mean I'll probably go see it, but it's not exciting yet.

Also it's kinda a reboot sequel thing. So you don't really know what side of the line it falls on.

It was the same premise, but with a sci-fi theme and it all takes place in a house. It's worthwhile as far as being funny and entertaining.

I really enjoyed the original Jumanji.  Looks like the remake is taking ideas from the short-lived tv series.

Why not just a re release of the original Jumanji but this time have better looking CGI animals?

Because that went over so well with Star Wars. xD

But in all seriousness, just adding better effects doesn't necessarily improve a scene. In fact it can worsen a scene if they don't fit in with the rest of the show.

You can't take for granted that it'll be better, either. The dinosaurs in Jurassic World look way worse than the dinosaurs in the original Jurassic Park, even though JW was made over two decades later and had a larger budget even after adjusting for inflation. Well, the dinos look fine, actually... but the way they move is uncanny.

This is why Steven Spielberg is a great director. He knows the limits of his technology and how to work around them. A lot of directors today still haven't learned that lesson.

Agree with JP:  those dinosaurs still look real.

The tyrannosaurus and indominous looked pretty realistic, but the raptors looked very fake. But for the sake of outdated CGI, theirs no harm in polishing it up to look less crude.

 

Here for example. Neither can replace the real Jabba puppet, though.Jabba03.jpg

Yep, Jabba should stay a puppet.  It convinced me enough.
