I saw the original "Alfie" today. It is heralded as Michael Caine's first great film - rightfully so. I really enjoy seeing the original films before the remakes. I have a problem with remakes... why do them? I understand that there aren't so many good stories out there, but why take a film or story that was done well, and preserved for everyone to see, and remake it?
Manchurian Candidate? Great original, blah remake.
An Affair to remember? come on now...
I did like "High Society" and "Philadelphia Story" but High Society was a musical - so it was a bit of a tribute.
this leads me to the newest remake - Wonka vs. Charlie. I think it could be good if it is a tribute... I'm sort of a huge fan of willy wonka and the chocolate factory. Huge.
I guess I'll just have to stand in line on Sunday to see star wars... who's comin' along?
"I copy that" is walkie-talkie talk for - I understand, will do, gotcha, ok, alright, yup, uh-huh, and much more depending on the inflection of the voice.
