    Why not? Remake everything! Screw originality.

    Also screw consistency; they seem to forget about the loss of his eyes at the end of part 2. Also, what was up with part 3? What were they thinking?

    I'm guessing along the lines of if they can remake "It" and it kills (no pun intended) at the box office then why not?

    Yes- part three was a completely different take on Halloween. They apparently had the idea of making a series of different horror movies under the title of Halloween, sort of like a Tales from the Crypt thing.

    This one seems especially weird because they pretty much already did this with Halloween H2O.

    I actually really liked the Rob Zombie reboot from a few years ago of parts 1 and 2- I wouldn't mind if they ran with that instead.

    Agreed. I love the mind and creativity of Rob Zombie; I also enjoy seeing his wife in the movies as well.
     
  8. I've read that it is supposed to be the Halloween 3 that was never made (instead of that Shamrock joke).
     
  9. Part 1 was great and I legitimately enjoyed it. Part 2 was the first time I ever wanted to walk out of a theater.

    Not sure how i feel about Danny McBride being involved in the screenplay. Loved Eastbound and Down (well, the first season), but he's been involved in a lot of garbage since.

    Geee, I hope this isn't derailment material but will Halloween 2017 be filled with weird clown violence? Also dressing up as a certain country's president may make people take a pot shot. ( especially if alcohol is involved) Just sayin.

    I thought it was going to be about juggalos being classified as a gang.

    So, after all this time, Mikey's going to hobble around after people, mumbling "Stay off..lawn", and poke 'em to death with his cane? I see a whole new movie genre here; Geriatric Slasher/Horror... Oh, wait; already been done. But, Bubba Ho-Tep set the bar pretty low, so, who knows...:whistle:

    Decided I will go opening day since I am on vacation that week. Hope it's worth it.

    Wouldn't Jason or Freddie or Mike Meyers all be in wheelchairs or using walkers by now?

    I guess the purpose of this remake is to waste time and take money from a new generation of movie goers.

    Considering Mike and Jason been hit, thrown out of cars, and etc. I don't see it happening. Freddy, he's in dream world.
