Well, there IS a need if the original film is out of touch with younger, contemporary audiences (which I think it is). I like it myself, but then again I'm 36 years old so I grew up with that kind of action film in the 90s.
Hey, a good idea would be to just market the poster but stop the movie from being released. Good God the first one was so awful, but being based on Miller's piece of sh*t comics, no surprise. '
Taken on its own terms, how was Sin City other than exactly what it needed to be? Sounds like a sensibility argument; it wasn't yours...not that there's anything wrong with that. As much as I like it, I can imagine how it might not be everyone's cup of tea...while still seeing it was perfectly conceived and executed for what they were going for.
With any luck...if Rodriguez shoots it right, SS2 will be that poster at 24 fps.
I see no problem in remaking CLIFFHANGER, and don't understand the outrage at this proposal. Sure, it's a good potboiler already, but it's very "90s" so there's definitely room for a more contemporary sensibility.
