You know if it wasn't "Death Race" I would've enjoyed it as a movie more.  As it was it was a pretty ok actioner.  But as a Death Race film, well, I wanted them to bring the crazy and they didn't.  Maybe it's one of those 'time and place' movies which exist and are better in the 70s than if they were done now [those reporters were damn hilarious]

I wouldn't say Psycho missed the point.  It's just that it has no reason to exist.  It's a shot by shot remake of the first without the charm or talent or the original.  If it had done anything other than just copy what was already done, maybe you could say it missed the point, but it really didn't offer anything new... except maybe a cow.

Highlander II, Highlander: Endgame, and Highlander: The Source.

All of these movies contradict the simple concept of Highlander and only make more plot holes.

first let me say,i worship at johnny depp's feet,he's one of the most versatile actors i've seen since jack nicholson was young.BUT...
i absloutely HATE charlie and the chocolate factory.i'm sticking with gene wilder as willy wonka,forever.

Maybe if people would stop worshiping Depp, he'd be less of a douche! He's brilliant but I'm sick of him!

Does a George Lucusfied "updated" Director's Cut count?

The 2004 Director's Cut might have the bells and whistles that are lacking in the orignal cut, but its a simple case of style over substance trying to modernize the movie with CGI which for the most part looks bad, doesn't seamlessly flow with the jarring 1971 production values and contradicts a lot of the themes and messages in the film in regards to technology. One of the elements that made THX 1138 so impressive in the first place was just how much Lucus achieved with so little in terms of experience and finances, it really is a striking unique piece of visual filmmaking that the Director's Cut just turns in to something thats conventional and generic to cattle in with modern times.
