I'm probably going to stand alone here, but I'm a bit disappointed with the idea of taking existing movies and converting them or updating/upgrading them just to appeal to a new audience. Take Star Wars for example. The first three movies (by which I mean the original trio which were produced first, not the prequels which chronologically take place first) were excellent films. There was no need to alter them to bring them in line with some all-powerful vision. Lucas has also talked about transforming the movies into 3-D, and I'm uninterested in that as well. I loved the movies as they were originally produced, flaws and all. The same holds true for the original Night of the Living Dead, a movie that has already been altered and adjusted more times than necessary (not to mention being remade as well). The original black and white version is terrifying just »
