    I did. I was wishing Hollywood would do a major flush of everyone making these remakes & get some new people with fresh ideas.

    Some Girls Live in Texas (once you get used to the blurriness it's a great show. Ronnie, Mick and Keef try to out Chuck Berry each other and Mick's wearing a highly un-PC shirt)
    The Making of Darkness at the Edge of Town (Not as great as The Making of Born to Run but there's some nice bits about getting a drum sound and mixing the album. Patti Smith is good value)

    Remakes get made because: a) the studio already owns the rights to the property (cost savings), b) remakes have a built-in audience. It has nothing to do with "fresh ideas", they get made because the studio sees them as a much safer financial bet than investing in a completely unknown property.

    Ides of March ~Good political drama, sags a bit in the middle.
    The Proposition ~ Plays better the second time around. Still too many flies.

    Love this film. Great directing. The extended combat inside the ghetto is white knuckle intense.

    Invasion Of The Body Snatchers (1956) - seen it countless times in my life, still entertained by it.

    After seeing the trailer for the new Terminator, my daughter wanted to see the originals. We watched the 1984 Terminator and Terminator 2 today.

    I feel like most (if not ALL) of Melissa McCarthy's movies are lame. The few that I've seen or at least attempted to sit through were terrible.

    Finally got around to watching Barbara last night. Quite good though a little predictable. Also watched Croupier for a second time (first time was a long long time ago). Second viewing of Croupier didn't hold up as well as first time. Highlight this time round was a short scene with Alex Kingston in the buff. I'd forgotten about that!!!

    Finally watched Takaski Miike's "Lesson the Evil". NOW I know why it has yet to get US distribution... Pretty entertaining though.

    Watched ZODIAC again for the first time since it hit DVD. Really good, and despite the extended length of the director's
    cut, I wouldn't have minded if it was longer.

    47 Ronin. It was pretty poorly made. The script was unfocused. Bad acting not only from you-know-who.

    The Clockwork Orange, for the umpteenth time. It's not my favorite Kubrick film (I prefer 2001 -my favorite- and The Shining), but it's great anyway. TCM was broadcasting it, and I couldn't resist it. It felt funny watching it on TV with the bluray version resting somewhere else in the house.

    Babadook (horror movie) at the theater. Loved it (except the ending left me a bit cold).

    On a side note, I just listened to a radio program about British cinema in the 40s on "The Essay", and is one of the best things I have heard in a long time, well worth listening to if you can find it.
    There are five episodes.
