Remake

Hellraiser (2022)

This remake raises some Hell. Before I watched the reboot of “Hellraiser,” I had to travel back in time to see the 1987 version, who was directed by Clive Barker, who adapted his own novella “The Hellbound Heart.” It’s an… Read More ›

Pinocchio (Disney+)

Yet another unnecessary live-action Disney remake. There have been many attempts to top the original 1940 Disney animated classic “Pinocchio,” which was taken from Carlo Collodi’s story, and many have tried and failed. There was “The Adventures of Pinocchio” with… Read More ›

Father of the Bride

Say “Yes” to this Latino-American version. Andy Garcia and Gloria Estefan are the latest leads in this third film version of “Father of the Bride,” after Spencer Tracy and Joan Bennett in 1950 and Steve Martin and Diane Keaton in… Read More ›

Memory

Mulan (2020)

The latest Disney remake brings honor to the main heroine. The 1998 animated feature “Mulan” was an absolute delight, because it possessed a Chinese spirit by resurrecting its legend Hua Mulan, giving the heroine her courage and honor, and allowing… Read More ›

The Jesus Rolls

This spin-off/remake wastes the iconic character and rolls gutter balls. “The Big Lebowski” will always be one of the Coen Brothers’ most extraordinary and nostalgic masterpieces of this or any other century. It resonates with fans with its twisted sense… Read More ›

Downhill

Eliane Benes and Ron Burgundy slip on the ice in this boring remake. Julia Louis-Dreyfus and Will Ferrell are two of the best comedy talents in the entertainment world, but in “Downhill,” they can’t seem to survive the recycled screenplay… Read More ›
