Highlander Blashphemy....

Just been going through the list of film releases for 2009 and amongst all the bloody remakes (next year really is the 'Year of the Remake') I stumbled across a remake of the original 1986 Highlander film!!!!

NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!

The original was fantastic but the sequals were appalling - especially #3 which was basically a remake of the first film (well - pretty much same dialogue and scene layout). We don't need a remake!

Mind you we don't really need remkes of any of the following either (and this isn't the comprehensive list...):

Attack of the Killer Tomatoes
Capricorn One
Children of the Corn
Clash of the Titans
Conan
The Crazies
Escape From New York
Flash Gordon*
He-Man & The Masters of the Universe
The Long Good Friday
A Nightmare on Elm Street
Red Dawn
The Rocky Horror Picture Show
Short Circuit
Suspiria
Friday the 13th

Mind you there are also some interesting new films coming out (Neverwhere by Neil Gaiman being one) and some good sequels or continuations of existings lines (including two new X-Men spinoffs , Cloverfield 2 and Transformers 2).

* = ok, I am keen on seeng a remake of Flash Gordon because I love pulp sci-fi :p
