Topic: Death Race 2000 (1975)
One of my favorite cult B movies has to be the original, D R 2000. (I'm watching it now on NetFlix) Well, when it was announced that there was going to be a remake; I was pretty stoked to hear the news. I'm not a big fan of the trend when it comes to remakes, but there are a few that have worked well. The Fly & The Thing, being the first two that come to mind.
After watching the remake. I was sooo disappointed. I couldn't believe just how badly they ruined it! Even having Danny Trejo in it couldn't save it. Not as bad as The Omen remake, but still crap; IMO. Then a second DR was announced. I was hoping for some redemption. Not so! Although I did enjoy the follow up a bit more than the first remake. It still pretty much sucked, again.
Will there be a third installment? " I really don't give a flapping dog's ass!!"
Ahhh...if only they would have just followed the original campy, B movie greatness that it is. That would have been one hoot of a good time. If only...
