ReviewSTL Podcast Episode 2: Movie Remakes (Scarface, Total Recall, The Departed)

July 19, 2013 /  by  
 

Scarface Original PosterSometimes things are better the second time around.

At least, that’s what some studios and producers would like you to think, if the recent influx of film remakes and reboots are any indication. It’s practically impossible to go to a movie theater and not see a poster/trailer for a film that’s already been previously made.

Infernal AffairsSome films you may not even realize were re-makes (Angels in the Outfield, The Thing). Other films did a solid job of paying homage to their heritage while being respectable films in their own right (True Grit). On the other hand, some re-makes did their best to ruin movies of your childhood (Red DawnTotal RecallClash of the Titans).

In our second podcast, Matt, Joe, Blake, Kevin, and Steve discuss recent remakes and their successes/failures as well as upcoming remakes and reboots we’re excited to see. Check it out!
