Silent Night / Silent Night, Deadly Night / Silent Night, Deadly Night Part II

You better watch out!


Horror

Rod Lott
Aside from re-creating two or three minor scenes, Silent Night in no way could be called a true remake of 1984's extremely controversial Silent Night, Deadly Night. Flicks about a killer Santa Claus have existed before and since; if not for the value of a brand-name, this could be just another.

Total Recall

Consider that a divorce.


Sci-Fi

Rod Lott
I'm not of the opinion that remakes are automatically a bad thing. Without them, we wouldn't have David Cronenberg's The Fly or John Carpenter's The Thing. The difference is that examples like those had a different way of telling the established story.

Dredd

Don't ‘Dredd’ this souped-up sci-fi reboot.


Sci-Fi

Rod Lott
Like The Punisher, Judge Dredd serves as judge, jury and executioner, all rolled into one. Like The Punisher, Judge Dredd also received a cinematic reboot in an attempt to right precious filmmakers’ wrongs.

We voted ... not


CFN

Gazette staff
Oklahoma is a conservative state. Just how conservative? Well, so much so that a little more than half of the population was unwilling in 2012 to progress up from their couch and to their voter precincts.

The Philadelphia Experiment

‘Experiment’ failed.


Sci-Fi

Rod Lott
There's a theory about remakes that perhaps Hollywood should stop remaking good movies and instead remake the bad ones, so that they may be improved. The problem with that theory is one runs the risk of the remake being bad, too. Case in point: The Philadelphia Experiment.
