Is this really neccessary?
It won't work without Arnie. Who's going to shoot Sharon Stone in the head and say "Consider dat a divorce!"
No actor on the face of the earth will be able to deliver a line like that effectively.
my thoughts exactly, I think I'm going to sit and watch the original out of respect later.
it is sometimes best to go over things more than once, so in this case, sure, it is neccessary
this could be so awful...
was originally meant to direct the film. I'd love to have seen his version although the Paul Verhoven version is a masterpiece of 80's action.
We Can Remember It For You Wholesale is very different from the film though if I remember it correctly.
this almost makes me wish I had three hands!
The story isn't about a guy like Arnie and it's not an action film. The concept is good enough that it could be redone in a very cool way. Aronofsky to remake? We could hope so...
I bet they cut the Arnie-using-innocents-as-human-shields thing, as well as the fat woman going mental and her head being a bomb.
