I'll admit, I love the original. LOVE it. LOL But it looks like I'm not going to love the new version too much. And hands down I'm a Colin Farrell fan over an Arnold fan, but...

What do you think? Do you want to see it? What do you think about all the remakes going on? 

It really bothers me that they aren't coming up with any good stand alone movies anymore. Remember when ID4 came out? That was awesome. It wasn't a prequel. It wasn't a sequel. It wasn't a remake.

Where have all the good movies gone?!

Hmmm... from the reviewers descriptions and the trailer, it sounds like the actresses in the remake have some really kick-ass action scenes; I'll probably see it just because of that. But I really loved the original, so I know I'll be comparing, even if I'm trying not to! LOL

I'm not a big fan of remakes; for the most part, it just makes me feel like they're taking a shortcut to toss something out there.
