The Psycho remake was pointless, but with Halloween there's creative flair there. The original is a classic and should always be remembered, but someone can come and make something old and tired fresh with a new approach.

Since when was a remake fresh and new?

It's pointless to try and better a film that's already as good as it can be. Anyone who thinks so are chasing dreams.

I already pointed out that I meant the series and genre in general.

Like Saving Private Ryan and Unforgiven.

Or look at the recent Dawn of the Dead, it doesn't top or come near Romero's masterpiece, but it made a tired sub-genre interesting again. I don't count 28 Days Later... as a zombie movie.

Will there be a Halloween 30th anniversary dvd release i wonder. What else could be included that hasn't been before. Does anyone own the criterion laserdisc? Curious to know if there are extras not available on dvd.

I'd almost count on it. To cash in on the anniversary, and the release of the remake. I don't own it, so I might pick it up when they do.

Sorry, can't help you on the extras.

The laserdisc has a commentary track on it not on any DVD.  Other than that, there's really no material out for a 30th Anniversary Edition unless someone wants to put snippets of practice material on there since someone bought a whole pallet of outtakes with no sound reels within the last year.

Die Another Day was too over the top and a just 2 hour tribute to the previous 19 films. Personally, I prefer Batman Returns over Batman Begins, but I don't think Batman Begins was overrated. It was intelligent and the world Nolan created was believable and whatnot.

My opinions as well Wink

If you really think about it, most of the Bond films are over the top. He's a secret agent with hi-tech toys, that's what you expect from the Bond movies. Yeah, some of the stunts are a little over the top, but no different from any other action movie made today.  A decent plot is expected as well, but I don't think it was that bad.

As for Batman Begins, I'll leave that alone because I wasn't blown away by it like mostly everyone else.  Hopefully the next picture will be better.  ;0)

I prefer the more "Down to Earth" ones, the first 3, a soft spot for YOLT (it is outlandish, I know, but it was my first), OHMSS, For Your Eyes Only, Licence to Kill, GoldenEye and Tomorrow Never Dies. While I enjoy and watch the others, these are my favourites for their more or less realistic events. And like you pointed out, it is a surreal fantasy series, so they're not realistic, I understand that.

And Die Another Day didn't have a plot, it was a rehashed jumble of the last 19 films (orbiting "death stars", diamonds, moles, etc.)

Batman Begins was great, The Dark Knight will beat it to a bloody pulp and leave it for dead. Because we have the origin out of the way, he can just be Batman.
