Keoma would be great if you just lost the vocals and kept the instumental part of the score. It doesn't bother me as much as some but it do sound like Tiny Tim for the feminine voice.
I quite like the punky raspy female vocal-kinda reminds me of Patti Smith!

Finally saw this on tv the other day and its a very average and pointless movie.It virtually follows the original scene for scene but with the added tackiness of more gory effects, and stupid dream sequences of Damiens mother.Apart from Mia Farrow brilliant as the wicked nanny Mrs Baylock(still prefer Billie Whitelaw though) the cast is uninspired and mediocre.And above all it lacks the disturbing brilliance of Jerry Goldsmiths music.

My rating 6 out of 10 Huh

Never.  Grin

The original Omen is a masterpiece in his genre - why are they making terrible remakes from good movies?  Angry

I hate remakes too but by following the original scene fo scene is even more pointless.

At least the Wicker Man remake was (apparently) totally different to the British classic and apparently works brilliantly (unintentially) as a comedy and for this i'm looking forward to watching this on tv in due course. Cheesy

 Haven't seen the original, Banjo, but the Nicolas Cage remake is hilarious throughout.  The fact that it was made as a straight horror/thriller flick just makes it that much funnier.  Youtube has a video up of all the movie's best moments.  I won't ruin them for you, especially the end, but my favorite is from midway through the movie.  Cage needs a bike and yells at a woman while pointing a gun at her...

Step away from the bike!
How can you not love that? Grin
