Writer's Block: First and only

Is there a film that you think is perfect in its original form and should never be remade?


Several, actually (some of which HAVE already, to their detriment, such as Miracle on 34th Street), but most notably, Citizen Kane, which is as crystalline perfect as a film can get. Probably also Sunset Boulevard, which is likewise perfect.

Am watching Happy Town on Tivo, and wondering if I like it, if i should bother to invest myself in another ABC drama, because the ones I like never seem to last more than a few episodes (whereas sucky ones apparently last forever). There were so many great shows they canceled in the last two years I'm very hesitant. But I like the cast, and it looks nicely creepy.

I love Sam Neill, but I wasn't blown away by Happy Town, and I'm sure ABC is going to cancel Flash Forward and thereby piss me off, so I haven't decided yet whether to keep watching or not.

And if anyone ever remakes LotR, they're idiots.

It was okay. There are 8 episodes; if they show them all, I'll probably watch (DVR syndrome; I got hooked on more shows than I normally would have because of it!).

I hope to goodness that Flashforward isn't canceled... *iz annoyed at ABC*

Good one! Definitely.
