No, I’m serious. Why are they remaking Escape From New York? What is the motivation, here? Particularly since I’ve heard that the plot as well as, effectively, the location is going to be remarkably different. Why not call it… something else? Something that won’t tick off people who saw nothing wrong with the original.
PS: Besides, Escape From New York had a worthy remake. It was called Arkham City, and it managed ‘worthy remake’ by the bold move of replacing Snake Plissken with Batman. That’s the only way you can get away with doing something like that, really. Batman trumps all.
