    The I Am Legend is a REMAKE? :shock:

    When they make an AVATAR remake? It's the time. Just make the natives green this time, and bang, we have a new movie with an original story. :roll:

    Oh dont get me wrong, i havent even seen the Will Smith one. Just stating! Although C Heston might be a bit old nowdays...

    It was shot on LA it seems, i guess they have similar post-industrial decay looks.

    Remake of a remake. :o

    I liked the I Am Legend, though the end of the movie was really stupid.
    Maybe the director said:

    "Whoops, we ran out of the budget. CUT! The End".

    :mrgreen:

    I don't know why they make a Robocop remake. What's wrong with the original? Acting perfect, special effects are ok, the quality is not bad, the story can't be better. :| I hope they don't ruin the Terminator 1-2. :evil:

    They're run by cowards looking for a quick buck, not artists.

    They actually had two endings. The other was a bit more... flowery and happy but I thought it was better than popping the grenade. Gave a little bit of humanity to the creatures and a slap in the face of everything he had said before about their humanity being lost.

    The granade just left them mindless crazed beasts.

    If you want to find some cool PA-esque images of Detroit, do a search for Detroit Disassembled. It's a book of photography of this exact subject. There are some amazing pictures in that book.

    The Omega Man ('71) was one of my favorite movies from the 70’s, that and Solent Green ('73)…it’s a pity the remake (I Am Legend) was so crappy…what I don’t understand is why Charlton Heston choose to shoot the zombies when he could have easily chomped them to death with his massive teeth. He could have been an extra in the film Piranhas. :mrgreen:

    I wouldn't have even considered any of these films remakes, they're just similar films based on a common principle - Considering they we all based on Richard Matthesons 'I Am Legend' they're all wide of the mark. Like what Blade is to Dracula- Some common concepts, but wildly different delivery.

    Personally, I'm still waiting for a film that follows the book a little more closely- the ending is fantastic, and explains why it's called 'I Am Legend'.

    Heh, ok! I'll describe some of what you're missing, then. There's one photograph of an old public school book repository with a caved-in roof on the top floor. The books are spread all over the floor, and through exposure to the elements have begun to decay into a sort of pulp or mulch. Out of this mulch, a tree is growing through the hole in the roof.
