    That's probably one of those bad rumors. I don't think that film should have ever been remade. Heck, I was shocked when they remade Psycho. Who greenlighted that deal? What bother's me most is the casting choice. They might as well cast Keanu Reeves and Meg Ryan. (shudders) If they ever remade that film (and they never should) Harrison Ford and maybe Isabella Rosalini would be my choices. I could see that. Still, they should just leave it alone.

    Well, I made the ultimate sacrifice tonight and went to several web sites dedicated to (ARGH!) Ben Affleck (Aff- BLECH! in my books) to see if there IS any truth to those rumors of him and Ms. Lopez remaking "Casablanca," and I couldn't find a thing!

    One site was even closed down until he takes a stand against Iraq, for heaven's sake! I think another one was for ... um, strange men who like Ben Affleck and his body, because they had all kinds of weird things they were saying about it...ewwww! (I feel icky now...I think I need to take a shower or something...)

    Needless to say, I DID find out that "Gigli" has been renamed "Tough Love" or something like that...(forgive me, I am both old and listening to "Futurama" at the same time as I am trying to type...)

    And I found out that "Jersey Girl" didn't need to have any new shots done because of the "lack of chemistry" between B&J and no audience reaction...again, that was "Gigli" or "Tough Love" as it is now being called (or whatever)...

    And I read Mirimax is spending an extra $3 million to have this done, so gee, I guess they are about the greatest and most convincing couple in America when it comes to those love scenes, aren't they?

    Please, Hollywood...if there IS any truth to the rumor that these two are going to be remaking "Casablanca," blind me now! Please! Or make it so that I never have to see that film somehow, because I really don't want to lose my sight...thanks...

    Eck, I hope it is just one of those bad rumors, because lord is that BAD.

    And I totally agree with you on the Psycho remake. Whats worse was, when it was released, I was still in this group of self-proclaimed uber-kids, and we of course all thought it was the worse thing to ever happen. I remember my girlfriend at the time saying "Hitchcock is SO turning in his grave right now.." That really worsened everything for me. (LoL)

    Hmmm. That wouldn't be anything like your obsession for X-Men's Hugh Jackman, would it? LOL! Seriously, were you upset at the idea that someone was idolizing the actor or that they were of the same sex? I can understand the former. :confused:

    Oh, THAT'S wonderful. After all, we all know what a brilliant actor Van Damme is. :rolleyes:
    .....I would be SOOO ticked by a Casablanca remake!!!!! The CHARADE remake upset me ENOUGH.....How DARE they defile Audrey Hepburn's legacy like that!!!!!! :mad: And with BEN AFFLECK AND JENNIFER LOPEZ??? Let's hope this IS merely a rumor, but if it's not, it's time to storm the Hollywood studios and CONQUER!!!!!

    ....Oh. Sorry. I tend get a little excited a/b this stuff.

    Arrrrgh! Jamie! What am I going to do with you??

    No, I don't have a "Hugh Jackman obsession!" I just LIKE the actor! Okay? He and the girl who play "Rogue" are about the only reason I would want to PAY MONEY to see a sequel to X-men, okay??

    Good grief, what am I going to have to do, twist that collar of yours to make your eyeballs bulge before you get it?? :rolleyes:

    No, it wasn't that there was a site that was dedicated to people of the same sex who were admiring someone of the same sex that bothered me...it was that there was a site dedicated to HIM by people of the same sex that were admiring someone of the same sex that bothered me. Did that come out right...without having to be censored?:concern:

    As for remakes about the great Audrey Hepburn, what about that "Sabrina" remake a few years ago? Harrison Ford took Humphrey Bogart's place, and Greg Kinnear played William Holden's part (and not as convincingly as Holden and Hepburn, as they were REALLY in love during the movie...)

    I don't recall the young woman's name, but I have to admit that she is better than Jennifer Love Hewitt, whom they used in a television movie about Audrey. Whomever told HER she looked like Hepburn should be taken out, flogged and then basted with salt water! (Can you tell I don't care for remakes of classics?)

    But I'm with Manda if she storms Hollywood...want me to bring the torches, Manda? Someone else will have to bring the matches! :crazy:

    Jennifer Love Hewit didn't even know who Audrey Hepburn was until making the film. Heck, she didn't even know who Hitchcock was. :eek: The young actors today. Okay, the girl is very pretty, but she's no Audrey. :concern:

    Seriously?? Wow, I don't even know what to say about that.:(

    Her name is Anna Paquin. She's one of my favorite actresses:)

    okay since i haven't had my imput on this thread i started i'll do so now. a remake of casablanca would be bad because i think we all know that if a movie that is considered to be a classic was remade, no one will see it. plus it would not be to good for affelck and lopez, although i don't care for lopez. so if this is a bad rumor, and i hope it is, casablance needs to be left alone.

    as for street fighter 2. van damme is a washed out actor. okay so he never could act, kind of like steven segal. but no one will see this movie because no one will care for this movie. so case closed on street fighter 2.

    as for lopez, i'm really getting tired of hearing her. she, just like brittney spears, is okay after a few times. but after awhile, you just don't care for them. i mean lopez honestly can't act. i mean she's ok if she's in one of those romantic comedy movies that she does, but i'm not convinced that she can act. actually, there are a few actress that i think can't act but they keep on doing movie after movie. but i won't name names, only if some one wants to know who i don't like!

    Jennifer Love Hewitt = Overrated
    Jennifer Lopez = Mall Chick

    The next movies I plan on seeing (in this order) are:

    A Mighty Wind -- if you haven't seen Christopher Guest's movies, you're missing out!

    X2 -- because I like comic book movies that don't have Ben Affleck

    MATRIX Reloaded -- uh...because I guess I have some kinda black leather fetish, and I'm violent. Well, who knew?

    After that it's a toss-up. Are there any Muppet movies coming out?

    Oooh yes! I can't wait to see that one!!:excited:

    Thank you. She was in the movie "The Piano," wasn't she?

    Ah, Christopher Guest...Who can forget the wonderful acting skills of the man who was the flower buyer in "Little Shop of Horrors," and of course, the great guitarist in "Spinal Tap?"

    Now THAT'S acting!!

    (See, Jamie, I admire the man and don't want him to take off his clothes!)
  14. electricmayhem

    electricmayhem New Member

    Yep, and did you see 25th Hour or Almost Famous? She was good in both of those too. (and Fly Away Home...that movie was so cute...with the geese and all:) )

    Ummm...no...no...and ... uuuuuh... no.

    Sorry. Don't see a lot of movies in theaters, and only got HBO and Showtime recently...

    (I'm a baaaaaaaad mommy...I don't spend money on "fun" things like that...just things like food, doctors, a roof over our heads, you know...)

    wondeful acting? i'd call it just acting. bill murray and steve martin stoled the whole show with their characters..they're the ones who had the "wonderful acting."

    I want to see that sooooooo bad! Not just because of the satrrie, but I love how they make fun of yuckie old Folk music....

    My family is addicted to the Christopher Guest documentory-style films. We can nearly recite every line of "Waiting for Guffman."

    I think the most fun we have is seeing what parts the troupe played last film and matching them to their parts in the latest. Not to mention the casts are so incredibly funny. I mean, who can improv an entire movie like them?! NO ONE! And Parker Posey...*heads over to the "Whose Hot?" thread* :D

    Yes, I recommend the 2 previous docu-films by Guest and the posse; "Waiting for Guffman," and "Best in Show." And I can garuntee you that the first day "A Mighty Wind" comes out in our town, we will be there!

    "How hiiigh a ridge I could not teeell!" LOL! Eugene Levy cracks me up. :)

    "I guess ryan didn't read the sarcasm in my remark about Guest's 'wonderful acting' in those movies...I mean, heck, they ARE supposed to be parodies and really funny, and they ARE..."
