I read this on darkhorizons today that Tony Scott is in the beginning stages of remaking the 1974 classic The Taking of Pelham One Two Three (1974) starring Walter Matthau and Robert Shaw. Denzel Washington is in negotiations to star.

I'm sure it will be just as good as all previous Tony Scott films. Evil

That's what you get, Drink, for being such an annoying Melville fanboy.

Which Scott films don't you like jenkins? I actually like him as a director but lately he's gone a bit crazy with his editing style. I dunno why he's experimenting with that so much? mmm

I'm just saying, the lack of originality in Hollywood is evident once again. They have to keep remaking classics.

Yeah it's kind of sad actually. All this great talent in the fields of literature, acting, and such go unnoticed, and thus people are losing some great entertainment to big budget, action crammed, CGI filled remakes. But then again you never know how it'll do in the box office. All the big Summer Blockbusters did amazing in theatres, but not with critics. Pan's Labyrinth did okay in the box office, but one the applause of critics, and the major filmgoing society. All that said, I reserve judgement 'til I see what happens.

Well, I did enjoy some of his earlier schlock, to be honest. I said about True Romance it is probably my favorite QT movie, if we can/wanna classify it as such. Enemy of the State is a pretty decent thriller, and I mean pretty decent. Crimson Tide is a nifty, tightly packed war thriller, with great performances, his best movie by far.

What's great about his other movies such as: Top Gun, Days of Thunder, or The Last Boyscout, is that nobody - himself included - took the whole thing very seriously. I always appreciate sincerity.

I like Top Gun for the exact reasons you said. True Romance is good stuff as well. I should revisit some of his older work, its been too long to really have much of an opinion.

Claudia, we need you to appear in LOST COMMAND. It's gonna revolutionize the war genre. What did you think of the script?

I thought Crimson Tide was great for what it was.
