Remakes

It’s a day for movies, because it’s misty outside and I don’t really feel like going anywhere anyway. Plus, I promised myself I wouldn’t spend to much time behind the computer, as my shoulder’s been aching the last few days. I watched About a Boy this afternoon, which I was pleasently surprised by.
The evening is for 2 remakes. First, I’m going to watch Insomnia, which is a remake from a Norwegian movie from 1997. The original is supposed to be better, but since I’ve yet to see both, I’ll keep an open mind. Later on tonight I’m going to tape the original Cape Fear, which is from 1962. I haven’t seen it, but the remake from 1991 is one of my favourites.
Oh, just found some interesting trivia on the IMDb site. Did you know Hugh Grant is usually dubbed in French versions by actor Vincent Cassel. The bizar world of dubbing. I can’t understand why anybody would prefer that to subtitles. Sigh. Anyhow, have a good evening.
