06.16.05Netflix I guess it was like illegal of me to see the remake without seeing the original, so I rented it. I'm surprised how close the remake is... it's basically the exact same movie with less split-screen and more jokes. Of course though, Aldrich supplies some classic 70s style and the original succeeds just as well without MTV editing or musical montages. In fact, i found it interesting how the remake felt the need to joke everything up, even the same exact lines in some instances. The original just did it, which i think makes it more macho or something. I still like the remake but also found this very entertaining.
