Biography

I am a human-shaped unicorn, and I write stories and draw pictures. My only religion is Friendship, and my only politics is Kindness. I write stories to try to comprehend the native simians that live on the planet I'm kind of stuck on. I know I'll never figure them out, but it's fun to try.

Leftovers: A Friendship Is Optimal Story

With all the stories about cool vampires, I wish there were more epics about cool eldritch abominations. I watched the Scorn gameplay trailer and found it rather soothing.

Ah, and thank you for the more involved answer. :)

And that list of potential titles... oh dear. :D

Oh, I absolutely agree with Crystal Alchemist. For me, John Carpenter's 'The Thing' is the definitive work. The original fifties version is suck city. The reason is that I am a fan of the story that 'The Thing' is based on, John W. Campbell's 'Who Goes There'. (Link to PDF of story for free). Carpenter actually represented the original story correctly, and included scenes straight from the text! The fifties movie basically had Tibor the human carrot from Lost In Space. Seriously.

I would argue that Aliens, the sequel to Alien is better than the original, and the original was excellent. Nothing after that was worth much (maybe, just maybe Alien Resurrection was fun, maybe) but Aliens, oh that was classic.

In general, remakes are not improvements, but sometimes... sometimes they are vastly better, The Thing being the only example I can think of right at the moment. There has to be another, surely?

But, I would argue, that there are some movies that should never be remade or given sequels. Citizen Kane is a prime example... and I would put Blade Runner in that catagory too (obviously). Some stories just... say what they say so perfectly that the job is done. Casablanca. There is a movie that is just perfect, and a remake would be a mistake, and be less. It would detract from the brilliance of the original.
