A new version of Logan's Run might be interesting. The original film was good, but not great. The ending was lousy and did not match that of the book. It would be interesting to see a film that sticks to the book's version of Last Day as being at age 21, not 30 as in the film.
I hate remakes of classic movies! If the movie is good, great or excellent then leave it alone! Remakes should only be for movies that were average, bad, very bad and horrible. I am ashamed to say that when I was younger I made fun of the people that were mad because of the remake of Ocean's Eleven and that I could not understand why they were so mad about it. Well, not too long after there were talks about remaking some of my childhood classics and then I understood them (i even had a flashback of what i said about it and them). Now the young people doing the same thing when going to see the remakes of classic movies will also soon understand when one of their classic is screwed up by a remake!
On the whole I don't like remakes. I think they get made because most younger movie goers don't see the appeal of older, often black & white, movies so producers want to lure them with color, special effects and big stars.
There's the odd exception. I think Alfred Hitchcock was right to remake his own movie 'The Man Who Knew Too Much'. He said something to the effect that the old version was made by a gifted amateur, and the new one by a seasoned professional.
But the 1970s remake of 'The Lady Vanishes', with Cybill Shepherd and Elliot Gould, was beyond awful. They should have left the 1937 Margaret Lockwood / Michael Redgrave version alone.
I have to agree. Remakes are never as good as the original and are usually pretty disappointing. I kind of wish they would leave the classics alone and come up with something new, but I guess a part of me hopes they'll come out with something cool.
