I have to admit that I'm appalled at what passes for horror/suspense nowadays. Straw Dogs is 110 minutes long, and it's divided into 90 minutes of boring exposition to wildly uninteresting characters, and a final 20 minutes of violent scenes that hold no logical or emotional relationship whatsoever to anything that took place in those initial, dull 90 minutes. It's as if the film drives on neutral... read more

Thoroughly disappointing remake of one of my favourite movies ever made despite its good intentions. The films biggest problems are the highly questionable casting choices combined with some terrible changes to the original.
However I found the backdrop (Deep South) they chose for this to be effective and on par with the original.

An average movie

When the news came out that they were remaking this classic, as usual, it gathered some buzz but pretty much like all those remakes (the most recent one being the ‘Oldboy’ remake directed by Spike Lee), it came and went pretty quickly at the box-office. Personally, I really liked a lot the original version directed by Sam Peckinpah but it has been more than a decade since I saw it so I thought... read more

“When the news came out that they were remaking this classic, as usual, it gathered some buzz but pretty much like all those remakes (the most recent one being the ‘Oldboy’ remake directed by Spike Lee), it came and went pretty quickly at the box-office. Personally, I really liked a lot the original version directed by Sam Peckinpah but it has been more than a decade since I saw it so I thought I could check this new version. While watching this flick, I was wondering ‘why do they remake these movies instead of re-releasing the good old classics?’. I mean, it would be cheaper and the younger audience would get to watch some really good flicks instead of those half-baked new version. Anyway, this remake was not that bad, Rod Lurie is a decent director (even though it is easily his we” read more

Remakes Why (10 movies items)

"There was no reason to remake this one, the orginal was the best, it did not celebrate violence. The whole cast did not seem to mesh, and it turned out to be another box office remake flop."
