Oooh I could be treading on egg shells right now but I'm sick of not voicing my opinion for fear of being flamed so here goes.

No one should ever be made to feel uncomfortable for expressing their opinion if they're doing so respectfully.  If someone's trolling/flaming you -- be it on the boards or via PM -- report them, and we'll straigthen them out.  This goes for ALL members.

Thank you Lonnie.

Re: Remakes by your opinion

UV- You should not be flamed for liking a movie or expressing your opinion about them.  So no worries about that.  I think the problem most of us have with remakes is that we know the originals very well.  We might have watched them several times and like the actors or the practical FX better in the original.  It has to be a good combination of actors, dialogue, or good FX for me to like the remake as well. For example the NOES remake would never be as good for me because I love Robert Englund as Freddy and nobody can replace him.  Another problem with remakes is that I already know what is going to happen and I already know the characters so there is nothing new and exciting about the story usually.

UV - Feel free to voice your opinion.  If you do get attacked (rare) it will be dealt with.  That's what so many people, like me, like about this Forum.  There are some heated discussions sometimes, but the pricks don't last long here for the most part.  smile  That said...most people here agree that my opinion is always right, so just never challenge me.  wink

Rob zombie seems to do better with his own original work rather than his remakes. While Halloween wasn't an awful film, it didn't really impress me. I found my mind wandering off to think about other things. I did my shopping list while watching it!

Re: Remakes by your opinion
