Quote from: MikPal on March 08, 2011, 03:50:31 PMFrom bi-quadruple mammaries to cartoons not so long ago and finally to complaining about remakes. Remaking films isn't going to destroy or violate your childhood. Worrying about it will.It isn't even a new tradition. Heck, the Maltese Falcon from 1941 is a remake of a remake (1936) of a movie (1931) based on a book (1930). That's two remakes in less than ten years. Ben-Hur from 1959 is also a remake of a 1925 remake which is a remake of the 1907 silent film that is based on a book. The classic A Fistful of Dollars (1963) is an italian remake of a japanese film Yojimbo (1961) that is a ripoff of Hammett's book Red Harvest (1925). How about an example from TV? "All in the Family" is a remake of the British show "Till Death do us Part." "The Flintstones" is a cartoon remake of "The Honeymooners". 90% of all the characters from Hanna Barbera Studios are caricatures of some famous celebrity (Yogi Bear=Art Carney, Fred and Shaggy=Dobie Gillis and Maynard Krebs). Even India has remade a film or song. Don't get me started about Turkey. In 2008 Russia released its own version of Schwarzeneggers 1985 classic Commando.Before films people used to make remakes/reimaginings in operas and theaters. Even the Grim fairytales are remakes. People have always remade stories that they liked.Soon to come (as long as I can get to inking this): "The Forbidden Love Triangle in the Land of Wuz Sans One or 'Hair, Hair!'".

Quote from: crayauchtin on March 09, 2011, 01:46:18 PMI miss the days when shows had dramatic music for their theme songs! Whatever happened to that? Curse you Dawson's Creek and your Dido theme music!

You're thinking Roswell, that show had Dido. YES, I watched both shows (quite religiously)!! YES, I have Roswell Seasons 1 and 2 on DVD!! YES, I had a fatty crush on Jason Behr! Ya wanna fight about it?!
Quote from: KatieHal on March 10, 2011, 02:11:22 PMI watched Roswell on DVD a few years ago. Jason Behr is definitely a good looking man. Fun show, although it did have some flaws.

Quote from: Haids1987 on March 10, 2011, 02:15:48 PMAnd MMM BOY, I used to pause the episode of Roswell called "End of the World" just so I could see Jason Behr's three seconds of shirtless pull-ups. *Sigh* The twelve year-old in me still shivers when I see that!
Quote from: Haids1987 on March 10, 2011, 02:10:19 PMHa ha, I totally was. My friend and I used to have "Weekly Roswell Discussions" every Wednesday morning (since Roswell was on Tuesday night ) before school. Jeez, that was ninth grade...where has the time gone?
