I wouldn't mind an updated version of A Boy and His Dog if they would do right by it and not try to score political points or push an agenda. That was a pretty wild movie.

Logans Run redone could be interesting to

Not really a remake, but I would love more Quantum Leap.

Increasingly expensive CGI effects that look worse and worse?

Your probably not going to like this:

Quantum Leap Reboot

Pretty much forget everything from the old series

None. Stop rehashing old ideas and create new ones.

I do get it, and there's part of me that used to like doing this. But given the current climate, and given nothing can be made without first going through the DEI filter at every studio, why want this now? This seems to be the most common complaint...that everything is a remake, a reboot, a "reimagining," a sequel, etc.

Frankly, I'm tired of watching old franchises be dug up to be shite on.

At this point Hollywood needs to just come out and say, "We're sorry, but we are unwilling to spend money on new ideas anymore. Now, here's your 16th Star Trek reboot. Take it and LIKE IT!"

I can't imagine the political satire embedded into that movie would work as well today.

Of the list, the first one that really leaps out to me is Dark Star, which was done by a good writer and director but on a shoestring budget in the 70s.

A lot of the other ones I’m seeing have either been remade (Body Snatchers, Death Race, Omega Man, etc) already or can’t really be improved upon.


Grandizer has potential but is too obscure for the US, unfortunately. If the live action Gatchaman film didn’t make it here, one of its contemporaries wouldn’t either.
