Grave Robbers


What's the difference between Bradley Cooper and the titular Crow?

Only the Crow could resurrect the performance of Brandon Lee.

Some things should stay dead.

Bradley Cooper should be trying to get the lead role in the film version of Garth Ennis's Preacher. And I totally agree with you, Chez...The Crow should be left alone. At least for a generation.

And then to drive the nail in the coffin (so to speak), they'll have some crap band like My Chemical Romance do a cover of the NIN cover of Joy Division's "Dead Souls." Only then will the Disneyification be complete.

JMN said...

No. Okay. Just, no. Enough. I wasn't personally a fan of "The Crow," because I thought it was kind of boring, but at least it had the mystique of Brandon Lee's actual accidental death around it. Bradley Cooper portrays smug assholes AND THAT IS IT. Hey, remember Josh Lucas? Well, here's him again, only with a bigger forehead, no accent, and a more annoyingly persistent five o'clock shadow.

You got that right -- don't remake the good movies -- remake the shitty ones.

Chez said...

Hey, Thomas -- I'm a fan of My Chemical Romance. That said, I could absolutely see them being asked to contribute a song on the soundtrack; I would hope they'd have the good sense to say no.

Thomas B said...

Bradley Cooper can't reign all the time.

Heather said...

I would never in a million years watch this. Never. This one should be left alone. Not only that, but I'm tired of the remakes, especially remakes of films barely a decade old. And they wonder why fewer people are going?

VOTAR said...

Oh but what if they got Johnny Cash to star in it? Then it would be like the most awesomest epic thing ever, no?

The prosecution rests.

Chez said...

Sorry, prosecution -- you're comparing Bradley Cooper to Johnny Cash, and that's positively comical.

Relax, Chez, this'll never happen. If for no other reason than simple logistics...everyone knows there isn't enough black and white grease paint in all of Hollywood to cover up that smarmy fucking smirk of his.

I don't care who's in it, who directs it, who writes it. I don't even care if it turns out good.

The Crow is one of my all time favorite films and it does not need to be fucking remade. It is perfect as is.

It's bad enough they already pissed on Brandon Lee's memory by making a bunch of fucking horrible sequels to his final film.

This is nothing more than another god damn cash grab. I hate Hollywood.
