No surprise here. I hate remakes, the Weinsteins are even more of a threat to horror than Asylum, early reviews for the film have been complete shit....but I agree with you skidog...I hope it does well enough in the box office to just rub it in.
But, I am far to young to remember when the original came out...but did this bruhaha happen then too?
But, as everyone has said...its just a bloody movie. Its fantasy. I still love what Marilyn Manson said on the Resident Evil Deluxe DVD says to the extent that "people get all pissed off with a horror movie that has people killing zombies that is complete fantasy and says its scars folks while Bush goes up and blows another country up"..great line.
IMDB also has this story and you gotta love this:
Jennifer Giroux, co-founder of Operation Just Say Merry Christmas, adds, "The use of religious music 'Silent Night' and the nativity set on the front porch in one scene are insensitive to Christians. It's not enough to ignore and omit Christmas, but now it has to be offended, insulted and desecrated. Our most sacred holiday, actually a holy day, is being assaulted."
And I love the last part now it has to be offended, insulted and desecrated. Our most sacred holiday, actually a holy day, is being assaulted...umm...I think Corporate America has already done this lady. They beat Hollywood to screwing with Christmas. *points to the countless sales and everything to cash in on the holidays as soon as labor day is over*
Thats my two cents for now.
