If people were really sick of all the remakes they would stop going to the theater.... they keep making them cause people keep going...little sheep who need to be constantly entertained by some kind of electronic device...

Agreed.  It's the movie going public's fault just as much.

Like if people would stop drinking s***ty beer, Budweiser ( InBev ) would go out of business and not be able to buy craft breweries.

Just to reiterate my previous post, the 1989 Batman was good...everything after that sucked until they rebooted.  I didn't think another reboot was in order since they left The Dark Knight wide open for another installment.

So when's the reboot of Debbie Does Dallas coming?

Exactly!  lol  I still can't believe Bud is the #1 selling beer in the World.  That just says to me that the majority of the beer drinking World hasn't tasted decent beer!  lol

Just to reiterate my previous post, the 1989 Batman was good...everything after that sucked until they rebooted.  I didn't think another reboot was in order since they left The Dark Knight wide open for another installment.

I agree w/ that.  The first one was OK. They got exponentially worse after that. 

So when's the reboot of Debbie Does Dallas coming?

I think your mom will be getting to my house around 11:00AM today.  You bring the camera.  ;)

they already did... it sucked!  ;)

The only reason bud is still #1 is due to marketing... give billions to the small guys to advertise like them and their sales will go up too... but most americans have s***ty palets and love bland things...

You know they're doing a sequel to TOP GUN right?

I don't believe it.  They'll never be able to find anyone with an ego as big as Tom Cruise to play the lead.

Oh, I dunno.  How about TOM CRUISE!  lol

How do you make Tom Cruise's ego look smaller?  Stand it next to Kanye West's ego!  lol

I haven't been to the movies in years. A complete f'ing waste of time. If I really want to see something there's always the web but usually just wait a bit and then it's on video-on-demand in my living room on my 50" HD screen for about $5 less. Though, I have been seeing the prices jump up to $10 recently.

Greedy bastards.

I haven't been in a movie theater in years.  Paying to sit in a dark room full of sneezing and coughing strangers does not appeal.

+1 on watching at home on the big screen.

Agreed.  My wife & I have been married for 10 years now.  I think we've been to the movies 2-3 times at the most.  lol

We have a 52" 1080p big screen and a 7.1 surround system that can rattle the windows out!  We virtually always wait for the rental/DVD/Blu-ray.  You can buy a movie now (even blu-ray) for about the same or less than it costs for 2 people to go to a movie in a theater and share one small popcorn.

An HD Netflix subscription is something like $11.  Go to one movie (matinee) a month with two people and you spend more than that.  And you can drink beer while you watch it.

Like?  It *was* a Thunderball remake.  Or is Domino a common name?
