Thanks, Dragon!

Re: Bullitt This is another one that ticks me off. I know, they can do whatever they want.

I just watched Bullitt again, and it's one of those films that gets better over time, IMO.
I wonder if today's audiences would be patient enough for a redo of the original. The pacing and the backstory, etc., there's so much subtlety I think folks would get bored.
I'm not familiar with Cooper. Does he have cool like McQueen? Does anybody?

The car chase is my all-time favorite. Just two muscle cars duelling it out.
No undercar explosions to vault it into a midair flip only to land on its wheels intact to continue; no crashing into the food court in the local mall, then driving up the down escalator only to wind up on the roof, five stories up and finally driving off that onto the wing of a plane coming in for a landing, which allows the car to continue the chase even further, leaving behind dozens of wrecked cars and collateral damage, with no legal consequences.

Ah, the good old days!

I wouldn't have thought that a naked Ward Bond was much of a turn on embarrassment

Negan (Jeffrey Dean) must be the biggest character turnaround in TV history - from totally evil monster (remember him smashing one of the leads head in that electric episode)...to one of the good guys! The Walking Dead in New York does sound good though.

I tried that once for my hot neighbor and the police came for a visit.

The pic of a stone-faced Vera Miles is hilarious in the context of the anecdote!

I'll offer to walk naked on purpose (or accidentally) to impress any girl. No? well, fuck.

I'm not sure which would be the most humiliating for me - the police showing up, or the neighbor lady pointing and laughing.

The Bullitt thing will be like all the other remakes.
Different plot and its only feeble resemblance will be the title.

The last time this happened.to me , the police wouldn't let me put my clothes back on. I still don't know if it.was because they were impressed or it was for spite.

Then it isn't a reboot, it's a new film that resembles another film.

I'm sure you're correct. Like I stated earlier, I don't think the original plot would go over today. I mean, it's pretty much a given nowadays that a cop movie is going to be like superhero movies. All action, shooting, car chases, etc.
I think that the days of showing investigative work and interdepartmental intrigue are over. There's just too much nuance and unspoken understanding to be digested.
'Sides, Bullitt was lightning in a bottle, IMO. The cast is perfect. Vaughn was at his slimy best, and of course McQueen was perfect. From what friends in law enforcement have told me, the subterfuge and conniving is fairly realistic, if not common, when it comes to ambitious folks vying for climbing the political ladder.

Yep, my thoughts the same. Reboot/Remake in name only. It's what they do nowadays.

My, Kurt Russell is so badass in this photo!

As an aside, I recommend Escape From LA. Parts of it are laugh out loud funny.

If it's the same character recast escaping from New York in the future, it's a reboot. The plot doesn't have to be the same and it's not "connected" to the original.

Example: Snake Plisken has to get out of New York (which is guarded by robots who work for the Mayor of NY) with a one of a kind priceless ceramic Cogri which belonged to Queen Elizabeth, otherwise the UK will break off all diplomatic ties with the US.

Not a sequel or a remake but a reboot of the character and his universe.

Escape From New York could be great (but it won't be). It's a great idea, Manhattan Island as a giant prison (although why would they take the most expensive real estate in the world & turn it into a prison?). The original was a small cheapo film (Escape From A Few Backstreets), & it should be epic. I'd have thought an HBO TV series would make more sense.

"Reboot" is usually used when you start an established franchise from "ground zero", so you can reboot "BATMAN" or "SPIDERMAN" or "JAMES BOND", "remake" is usually used when you do a new filming or interpretation of an established story, like Carpenter's THE THING (which was a remake of the 1951 THE THING and closer in tone to the original story), or Peter Jackson's KING KONG.

I never considered ESCAPE FROM NEW YORK really a "franchise", so I don't know what's there to "reboot"? If it's the same character rescuing someone from a giant city turned prison, it's more or less a "remake". Unless they really think they have a franchise going there.

I was talking about the Bullitt movie not EFNY. Seems some of you are playing "Telephone".
