Are you serious???

Is it really necessary to remake Nightmare On Elm Street? Fuck, there aren't any new ideas so make shitty remakes of the originals!

People take these things too seriously!

The remakes are almost never as good as the originals. But they make money. That is why they do it.

Same shit with old tv shows made into movies. They don't keep the formula that made the show popular. Example: Starsky and Hutch. I think they are going to fuck up The A-Team too.

I did like Miami Vice. It wasn't great but it was like the tv show. They didn't make it a comedy.

I came here to drink some beer and kick some ass. And it looks like we are all out of beer.

It is not necessary to come up with a new idea. Just come up with a good one.

If you ain't with us, then it's just bad news.

yes it is necessary. hollywood is completely fucked on ideas and as long as the lemmings will keep going to the shit they crank out, they'll sit on that toilet as long as they have to.

I loved nightmare on elm street. I still need to buy the dvd pack.

Jason vs freddy was badass and should probably be the last.


if they make a sequel i'm all for it. but redoing the whole thing is gonna blow.


Freddy comes back from kicking jasons ass and goes after ginger kids.

The original was Johnny Depp's first time on the big screen.


Man, that movie is so cheesy looking back now. But at the time it was bad ass and scared the shit out of everyone. +1 for a very original idea though.

I guess I'll wait for the 'real reviews' to come out.

The scores seem to always be bloated when movies first come out.
