    Just going by his track record, it might be a great adaption. I'm really looking forward to it.
    I just hope he doesn't get typecast as a director that handles franchise reboots/remakes.

    Some good reading:

    How The End of VHS Took The Movie Rental Window With It


    Does anyone actually remember DIVX?

    Orange and Teal, or How “Re-Mastering” is Distorting Our View of Classic Films

    Rare Clips from Hitchcock’s Unmade Found-Footage Project KALEIDOSCOPE


    I think even Jodo might not have been immune to the curse had he gotten his version off the ground. Lynch has always claimed his Dune a failure because of too much compromise, studio interference and knowing he wasn't getting final cut. Hypothetically, say some studio were to toss a bunch of money Jodorowsky's way, knowing how notorious studios are when it comes to interference, what are the odds of the finished film completely mirroring the initial vision?

    Large scale, ambitious sci-fi brought bad luck to a lot of directors. Zulawski had On the Silver Globe shut down by the government, Richard Stanley was fired from The Island of Dr. Moreau, Ferrara was constantly hounded by Warner Bros. during the making of Body Snatchers and the film was more or less shoved under the bus by its own studio after the fact, ect... Its kind of a miracle that Verhoeven made it work on his sci-fi ventures or that German managed to finish Hard to Be a God after a 6 year on again off again shoot and 7 years of post.

    Loves most movie genres but I don't enjoy unrealistic action movies with a bunch of fake ass explosions UNLESS they have great characters like "V" from "V for Vendetta" and The Joker from "The Dark Knight". I love horror movies, My favorite one is probably The Texas Chainsaw Massacre (1974). I also really enjoy love movies (especially those with sad endings), I like some "growing up / teen" movies. My favorite movies of all time are: Lord of the Rings (all three movies), Narnia (1 and 2), Pirates of the Caribbean (all 4) and Star Wars.

    What's the GMD opinion on Dark City (1998)? The "then came the Stranger's" quote is a popular sample in DnB which is how I found out about it. Is it worth checking out, or is the quote just used to scare people on LSD?

    having a quick look at the library:
    green room (punks vs. nazis thriller)
    the wailing (crazy asian horror)
    the hateful eight (latest tarantino)
    the nice guys (fun black comedy by the kiss kiss bang bang dude)
    drag me to hell (i haven't seen but it's sam raimi going back to his horror roots)
    shaun of the dead (you've prob seen this)
    the descent (dykes vs. gollums horror)
    the mist (cult classic horror throwback)
    the devil's rejects (youve prob seen this)
    slither (bit of a cult horror classic)
    the midnight meat train (supposedly good clive parker adaptation that isn't hellraiser)
    sinister (another recentish horror that's got a cult following)
    seven samurai (duh. there's other kurosawas like rashomon, yojimbo too)
    battle royale (duh)
    the host (quality asian monster movie)
    irreversible (classic rape revenge)
    the skin i live in (crazy ass trashy horror-thriller)

    Recently went to see Guardians of The Galaxy, never seen the first one, last few times went to the theatre wanted to see it, it was pretty cool, good cast. Slither is one of my favorites. Shaun of The Dead is a good one.

    I liked that film a lot, could do with re-watching it.

    I'd also recommend Welt am Draht and, to a lesser extent Alphaville.
