As a horror fan, the word “remake” digs up mixed emotions, but as a fan of all cinema, one has to question the merits behind remaking a romantic film. Aren’t they all essentially just remakes anyway? People fall in love, some obstacle gets in the way, hearts are broken, said hearts are then mended and *usually* everyone lives happily ever after – don’t see much deviation except the who, when, and where – but a straight remake? Thankfully, Endless Love strays extremely far from Franco Zeffirelli’s original film, as similarities boil down to character names, a tale of forbidden fruits, and one chance encounter with a raging fire. No one can stop the unbreakable bonds of true love, not even an irrational father with a restraining order – Love Knows No Laws!

This coming Valentine's Day sees the release of "Endless Love," a remake of the 1981 Brooke Shields film, that's available to view for free on SnagFilms. The Franco Zeffirelli-directed 1981 "Endless Love," although a box office success, received six Razzie nominations (and funnily enough, an Oscar nomination for its title song by Lionel Richie). Whether the 2014 version, starring Alex Pettyfer, will follow in the same vein, well, we'll see. In the trailer for the remake, we are introduced to David and Jade, two drop-dead gorgeous lovers who embark on an impassioned relationship despite interferences from Jade's meddling parents. We are given intercut scenes of love-making, swimming pool footsie and daddy yelling -- all to a sexy cover of Robert Palmer's "Addicted to Love" by Florence + The Machine. Directed and written by Shana Feste ("Country Song"), "Endless Love" promises intrigue, really good beach bodies and steam--the perfect Valentine's Day flick. Before catching the new. »
