Hollywood is a junkie that is beyond help and redemption.
It is addicted to the drug of remakes and sequels. It is just terrible. Copy/inferior paste, copy/inferior paste, ad nauseam.
With 10% originality and story telling left in Hollywood we have to stay home and be rid of this stupidity. Scarlet Johansson, Paul Feig, Jar Jar Abrams, Kathleen Kennedy and the rest of the hacks should just throw in the towel.
Man, I cringed for almost two hours trying to get to the end of this DVD. What did it add to the original? Nothing? Exactly.
Takeshi Kitano looked like he is cringing right alongside me.
