Solomon Kane (2009) I read 2 or 3 stories of this character and they are all in the horror realm. The movie is more of an adventure story with supernatural elements. And the visual is not that of an horror movie. The plot is not particularly original but the final confrontation has got some touch of originality. I give it 6/10 because Purefoy is very good.

X-Men: The Last Stand (2006) I was sure I had seen this one, but probably didn't. Notable for the last battle, but though it gives the final word on the saga, it is not on the level of the first 2.  6-7/10

The Three Musketeers (2011) A rewriting of the story with the introduction of airships as the main weapon and action set. The duel on the roofs of Notre Dame is very good.  Waltz plays a catatonic Richelieu (no surprise: all the characters played by this guy usually are such) and Corden is unfunny as usual. The rest of the cast is ok. To be noted that D'Artagnan goes into a fray with Rochefort because he won't present his excuses to his horse. 7/10

The Three Musketeers (1993) Another rewriting of the plot, it is better of what I expected and gets 7/10

Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings (2021) Action scenes and special effects are top notch, but with a 20-30 minutes  cut would have been much better. Usual wonder at how Awkwafina got the part: she's miles away from being eye-candy. 7/10

But that's what I said. Both movies are not remakes, they are filled with new original ideas. If they are good ones is debatable, but they do not follow the literary source if only superficially.

He's talking about entirely new stuff altogether.

No anything but The Three Musketeers or Batman or James Bond etc., etc. Completely new material.

Do you have a reading comprehension problem. He means we are tired of remakes, re imaginings, reboots, etc.
I've seen all the Musketeers I'll ever want to see.

They are not so many, to start with, among big productions. And  actually, those following the novel (among the one made after WWII) are just two: the Gene Kelly and the 2 parts Richard Lester made in the '70's (!). So I can't see  the need for doing  something different from the novel, though that's what the two movies I rated have made.

King Arthur: Legend of the Sword (2017) I can only say this is boring, slow-paced and with some interesting but not revolutionary special effects in the final duel. 5/10

Kagemusha (1980) I didn't remember a thing of this one that I saw in a cinema at the time of release. And the rating is the same: 6/10. The only memorable scene is the attack in the night on the hill with the double protected by a human screen: you never know what is gonna happen (or what is happening). The rest are useless or bland dialogues and cuts would have been in order, although that wouldn't have created a masterpiece. The suicide tactics in the final battle were copied by American Indians 3 centuries later.
