Anyone have any suggestions for this? or a better idea of a theme? Not sure how active essien is with the Film Club now
Do you have any remakes on your mind that you think are better than the original? Minus Invasion of the Body Snatchers lol
Having watched Ringu yesterday, I'd argue the US remake was superior, but I watched that one so I'd rather avoid having to watch it again so soon.
Having done a quick google there's a few they call out:
The Thing from Another World (1951) / The Thing (1982) Diversion / Fatal Attraction (1987) La Totale (1991) / True Lies (1994) Ocean's Eleven (1960) / Ocean's Eleven (2001) Infernal Affairs (2002) / The Departed (2006) True Grit (1969) / True Grit (2010) The Fly (1958) / The Fly (1986) Scarface (1932) / Scarface (1983) Pete's Dragon (1977) / Pete's Dragon (2016) The Man Who Knew Too Much (1932) / The Man Who Knew Too Much (1956)
The Hitchcock one is probably the most appealing for me. I'm sure y'all would have seen the majority of the rest.
Okay, so are we picking that pair? I would enjoy that, please.
Let’s go for it, then.
Happy with this. Ill make some threads. I'm off work for a month so I've not been online as regularly as usual. Will sort it out next week. Let's assume deadlines are 2 weeks from now for Infernal and a month from now for Departed.
