The movie has already been made. It's out there. :dunno:


The Wizard of Oz is a remake. Should that not have been made?

I suppose you are referring to the glittering botchjob of 1939??

No. The world would have been better off without that version. :dunno:

Remakes are made for one reason and one reason only.

Movie executives believe they are less of a risk for their production company's cash. A tried and tested idea is less likely to be a bomb. As long as the movie business is a business remakes, re-imaginings, sequels, prequels, adaptations and rip-offs will take precedence over original ideas.
We are alive, so the universe must be said to be alive. We are its consciousness as well as our own. We rise out of the cosmos and see its mesh of patterns, and it strikes us as beautiful. And that feeling is the most important thing in all the universe.

This film again. Gave me dreams and nightmares as a child. I remember at one time I couldn't tell if seeing it was a dream itself or reality (due to the passage of time) until someone posted it here last year.
