I'm fearful of the War of the Worlds remake. While the book is a classic, and many of the previous ventures have worked well because of how closely they follow much of the core mythology, I'm terrified that Spielberg will make too many changes to it. Even the webpage seems an indication that a large part of the mythos, that the aliens are extremely vulnerable to diseases of Earth, will be largely ignored. This can be drawn from something as simple as the movie's catchphrase, "They Are Already Here." If they were here, they would already be near death.
Besides, wasn't there already a modern remake? Independence Day anyone?

I like the chances of the new batman movie. I don't like the idea of him having to always face 2 villians. I hope it works. since I couldn't pick 2 choices, I really am anxious for Sin City as well, and Charlie and The Chocolate Factory.

Revenge of the Sith, anyone? Despite myself, I really really want to see it. That and Batman Begins.

I ain't afraid of no rolly-coaster.

It can't be worse than Attack of the Clones. And volcanoes are pretty sweet.

If I had conjured this as a fiction
I would be scared I'd gone too far

charlie and the chocolate factory was one of about 3 movies i watched constantly when i was really little...The Sound of Music and Ramona being the other 2. You can't beat the quirkiness of the original...but I think it's one of those stories that is built entirely out of the development of the characters. Assuming the new cast developes their charaters to be something other than clones of the old cast, it'll be a good time.

Hell, you can't beat the quirkiness of Gene Wilder.

Has anyone seen the trailer yet? You should. It allays many a fear of the film. I was on the fence, but the trailer pushed me over into excitement. Check it out! You won't be disappointed!

Isn't anyone ready for Constantine in a month?

I hope that Tom and Stephen's second combo attempt is better than Minority Report... and judging from the trailers and the HG Wells book... it better be, because it got my vote!
