    Hey! Hey, Fellatio! Got a match? Well, I do! Your face and my ass! Your breath made of buffalo farts!

    The original is a very weird flick. It works very well in many parts, but it gets a little weepy in others. I'm curious about a remake, but i love the original cast.

    Anything with Julia Roberts being remade without Julia Roberts is a step in the right direction in my book.

    I am a big fan of the original, but am surprised that this will be remade.

    Flatliners is one of my favorite films, the whole mystery of what is on the other side has both intrigued & terrified me. I love the cast of the original but I don't feel a remake is needed.

    I love the idea of the original, but the sins that haunted everyone were pretty lame. It could have been much darker and meaner. Not that the remake will correct those mistakes.

    I'm proud to say that the original is the only movie I own with Julia Roberts. Remaking anything doesn't even phase me anymore, I will continue to stay away from them until they all die.

    :lol: You're not alone. It's the only movie that I own with her as well.

    The first film worked on many levels. I'll be interested to see how this one fares as a remake, but the chances of it being as good (or better) are quite slim, judging on the success of recent horror remakes.

    Flatliners is the first remake of a film that was made after I became "of age". That means roughly 16 years old. And it was NEVER that good of a film to begin with.

    Is there room for improvement?

    Hell yeah.

    Do I think that it'll be improved?

    Hell no!

    Why?

    Because Hollywood nowadays can't get ANYTHING right.

    Nuff said.

    Hey, here’s another thing to consider: A Flatliners redux officially blazes a trail toward eventually remaking the movies of the 1990s, which is a whole new decade of resources to be strip-mined and reassembled that should keep the industry running for at least another five years or so.

    Great here comes that remake of I Know What You Did Last Summer that I've been dreaming about....sheesh!!!!

    I never said it's the only movie I've seen, just the only one I own or can stand. Guess I didn't include the "can stand" before.:)

    EB was alright, but I'd lose my man card if I owned it. I also don't hate the Oceans series, but I do think I hate Julia, sorry. If she would've busted out the tits in Pretty Woman I would have a totally different world view now, but she didn't, still hasn't, scary teeth, fuck her!:p

    I can see it now--in a few years they'll be remaking movies before the original even hits theaters. :lol:

    I really like the original (it and Phone Booth are the only Schumacher films I can stand), but I think a remake has potential. Bring it on!

    Yikes, no love for The Lost Boys, Falling Down, or 8MM? Heck, I even dig St. Elmo's Fire. :D:D:D

    I was never too big on Lost Boys. It's not a horrible film or anything...just not my cup of tea.

    I had forgotten about Falling Down. I don't want to say I like it since I haven't seen it in years, but I remember liking Michael Douglas quite a bit in it.

    8MM has Nicholas Cage in it, so that immediately knocks some points off of it. :p It's an okay film otherwise.

    St. Elmo's Fire is one of the few Brat Pack movies I don't care for. I just never really got into it.
