OK, Cue The Super Loud Stones Album

Y'all aren't crazy about Tarantino?
I'm not crazy about Scorsese, who's remaking Kurosawa's High and Low.

A: What balls.
B: John Waters was right - we should only remake the bad films.

Oh man - after GoodFellas it's all been overkill, and I'm not making a pun.

On the other hand, I'm all for Miikie's "Sukiyaki Django," which I have yet to see.

Even when Scorsese is wrong, he's right.
He has my permission to remake whatever he chooses. :)

In other news, I thought SUKIYAKI WESTERN DJANGO was such a monumental disappointment. I can only watch it with the Japanese dub audio track; then I can appreciate the aesthetic beauty. The mangled English being spit out was not only a distraction, but also unnecessary, because if Miike was truly going for "that old time religion" he should have had a genuine English dubbing session with actors who could speak the language properly. And I thought the surreal pop intro w/ Tarantino was a complete waste of time.

When Miike is good, he is very very good. But when he's bad he is horrid.
