Must We Remake Everything?

I'm horrified after having watching the trailer for Arthur.

I know that Russell Brand is apparently the next big thing but seriously....Arthur is a true classic and I'm sure Dudley Moore is rolling over in his grave for it.

Is nothing sacred?

Apparently not.

It is also apparent that there's a total lack of creativity in Hollyweird if we have to recycle films that are only 30 years old.

So if you have a desire to see Arthur, I beg you not to.

If you want to see the film, netflix the original film and it's sequel, starring Dudley Moore and Liza Minnelli. Those will be worth your dollar.

I do plan on seeing the original and I think it is lurking in my Netflix list, but the new one does look good. I do love Russell.

I don't think I'd pay to see the remake...maybe netflix it when its out on DVD. Granted it looks cute, but they really are messing with a classic film with a classic cast.
