    What movie sequel or remake would you like to see?

    I'd like to see a remake of The Shining. A version that's a little more true to the book and that plays up the supernatural aspects and the special effects potential of Stephen King's version. I know that there was a made for tv version in '97 that was closer to the book but I just think it would be really interesting to see a big screen version of what King imagined.

    As far as sequels, maybe Hamlet 2 and GalaxyQuest.

    Re: What movie sequel or remake would you like to see?

    I'd like to see all the Star Wars movies movies made after the original trilogy remade. Just because the story is so great, but George Lucas apparently forgot how to make movies after Return of the Jedi.

    Another list to ponder might be movies that should never have been redone, such as Cape Fear. Mitchum could intimidate me in a Snuggie- there was no room for improvement over the original.

    OMG you almost read my mind. I was thinking Time Bandits 2 give or take the 3D. Terry Gilliam had some intentions here, but too many of the little people are now gone among other things.

    I agree on The Shining. After hearing how different the book was I decided to read it last year. I was amazed at how much better the book was than Kubrick's film.

    This made for TV version was supposedly true to the book.

    I watched most of the TV version and it was FAR closer to the book. While I enjoyed it, the production value was, well, like a TV movie. I'd like to see a movie made with a decent budget behind it.

    perusing this thread i was snagged by this post since "three days of the condor" is one of the excellent pollack/redford collaborations ("jeremiah johnson", "out of africa", "the way we were", etc.) that i need to watch again ever so often.

    redford, dunaway, cliff robertson, john houseman, et al. are just fine for an umpteenth viewing..no updates/redundancies please.

    Aren't you curious whether the Times ran the story and what the consequences were either way for Turner? I guess the scene where Max Von Sydow spells out for him what will happen to him is meant to let us know what the future holds.

    That may be the case but Jack Nicholson's performance as Jack Torrance was so over the top not sure who you could cast to take his place ?
