Yeah, I'm sure a lot of you have heard about this already.

For those of you who haven't, MTV is working on a remake of the cult hit The Rocky Horror Picture Show. Needless to say, Richard O'Brien isn't too thrilled about it. Here's what he had to say about it- http://io9.com/5037376/riff-raff-curses-mtvs-rocky-horror-remake

My thoughts on the upcoming remake? No, just no. The original is a classic. No need for remakes.

But, what are your thoughts on the upcoming RHPS remake?

Bah! *dies*
This upsets me just as much as hearing they were making a movie adaptation of "21 Jump Street". No! What is this world coming to. I refuse to see either one.

Seriously, what's up with all the remakes lately? Not only is RHPS being remade, but also The Wolfman, Hellraiser, Friday The 13th, and.... (Record scratches) Gorgo!?

There's no words to describe this insanity.

Wolfman does look awesome. I don't mind remakes too very much if they are actually good.

And I admit I will see Friday the 13th at least once just because my Puppy boy is in it.

I only like remakes if they can do a good different take on the original idea.

And with things like The Wolfman, it makes sense because it can be modernized really well, whereas movies like RHPS weren't that long ago. Also, how the hell do you remake RHPS? That's a pretty difficult feat.

Maybe he'll be playing Jareth again. His crotch is still hot, even at his age.

I might give the Wolfman remake a chance, considering that it looks like they're putting a lot of effort into it...Which is usually a pretty good sign when it comes to remakes.

Wait....Seven Samurai remake? no, No, NO, NO!. Akira Kurosawa is rolling in his grave.

I know its dorky, but who cares? They were some of my favorite movies (excluding the second one) and my favorite show growing up.

And I still watch the hell out of the series on dvd when I'm sick.

I'm still recovering from the fiasco that was the American remake of Godzilla. If anything, GINO (Godzilla In Name Only) is more along the lines of a remake of The Beast From 20,000 Fathoms than a remake of Gojira.

On another note, if the original Plan 9 is already so bad that it becomes hilarious to watch, then what does that say about the upcoming remake? In other words, will it have the Ed Wood-esque "hilariously bad" charm of the original, or will it be like something from a Uwe Boll film (IE: You feel nauseous after watchin the first five minutes of it)?

I only watched that Godzillia once. That was when it came out when I was in, what?, the 7th grade maybe. It was depressing. I just felt bad for the dude. Tragic victim of nuclear testing.

I still watch Boll films. A)because I watch all zombie flicks and B) if they got Kristina Loken in it cuz that bitch is hot. But they are very bad. Kinda like Sci Fi original movies.

I HATED ALIEN APOCALYPSE. >: ( Not even Bruce Campbell could save it.

I actually liked the Godzilla remake, but that has more to do with me having a hardcore crush on Matthew Broderick back then.

I only remember watching Godzilla 2000 once and it was when my family was staying at this YMCA in Colorado for some doctors conference my mom had to attend. I totally didn't even realize/remember Matthew was in it. And when I found out he was years later it was definately a "...WHAT?!" moment.

I like the Sci Fi movies too. But they are what they are. Uwe Boll gets points taken away because he thinks his movies are the best ever to grace the screen and wants to fight with you over it.

OH! and my favorite part of that Godzillia? Matt's hat. It was pretty bitchin'.

Has anybody seen the original Japanese Godzilla (sans American reporter dude)? It's actually pretty poignant.

*Stretching back to original topic* No Rocky Horror remakes plzkthx.
