remakes

18 posts in this topic

I've noticed more films being remade like War of the Worlds, Longest Yard, Star Trek, Day Earth stood still, and so on. Any opinions if the remakes are any better or worse than the original? What about movies that haven't been remade that should be attempted? I was watching Smokey and the Bandit that made me think which actors could play the characters to do a remake of that movie. Hard to replace Burt Reynolds, or Jackie Gleason. They seemed perfect for their character.

Some are good, some shoulda been left alone.

Dukes of Hazzard was horrible and should have never been done that way.

Didn't they do Land Of The Lost? I'm curious to see how that turned out.

I don't think land of lost has come out yet.

I like horror movies, I thought the remakes and then prequel of texas chainsaw massacre were good. The recently redone Friday the 13th was cool mostly because Jason was more intense instead of a hapless dude in a hockey mask going around the camp.

But I am with Sandman too, others are just to better off left alone. I could here bands do cover of Floyd songs but never the same

Isn't this with Will Ferrell? I am not a big fan of his movies so I'll wait to hear peoples reviews once it comes out.

Dukes of Hazzard was named worst movie of the year the year it came out by Ebert and Roeper. They blasted it, and also blasted the show.

I am a HUGE CHiPs fan from my youth (have Seasons 1&2 on DVD) and they are supposed to put a movie out this year with Wilmer Valderamma as Ponch. I am very skeptical about it. He does remind me of Ponch, but I think they are going to turn it into a slapstick and ruin it

I do believe Land of the Lost is with Will Ferrell. I too am a HUGE fan of horror movies. I liked Friday The 13th a LOT. Jason is just a new kind of monster in it. I liked Halloween(2007)quite a bit also, and am excited to see H2(Unlike a lot of people, I like Rob Zombie's movies). Agree on Dukes...Wasted a good chance to make a pretty cool movie. I have also heard something about Chips. I wasted 10 minutes of my life watching War Of The Worlds 2. It is staring C. Thomas Howell. HORRIBLE.

I actually have not seen the new Hitcher yet(well not the full movie yet, only the beginning). And yes he is...Sadly! His crowning day was in The Outsiders(which now that I think about it, I would love to see this movie remade also!). WOTW2 was horrible in every aspect. Very bad CG, and worse acting. I literally watched about 10 minutes of it and turned it off. Good thing I rented it, or I would of threw it out to the burn pit! I also believe he may of been in a Starship Troopers sequel also. If i remember right he was in part 2. And now I just had to check in on good old Howell and see what he has done...And wow its extensive:

I just did a search on imdb and CHiPs has been pushed back to a 2011 release, and when you look up Wilmer Valderamma it doesn't show that he is even working on it. Hopefully it gets scrapped, don't want to see them ruin it

heard a new Slap Shot is coming to a theater near you. That is one that cannot be redone. Like so many classic movies the actors and writers made the characters. Are the Hansons going to pull out an Xbox instead of toy cars. Heck a lot of adults now wouldnt find that as funny. Most classic movies are clasic because of the combo of people and times that went into the original. Try to redo a Duke film, youll never get anyone who can pull off the characters he portrayed like he did. Can anyone do the MacKenzie brothers like those two Hosers. Also so many movies where made for and in a time that we no longer live in and the new remakes are made to be picture perfect in place of acting, dialogue, and directing. It is more about cinematography and special effects.

Kinda makes you wonder why writers can't come up with an original movie. Seems like there are more each year being remade. If it's not a remake, then the movie is another sequel. Like all the horror movies.

from Wiki:

-------------------------------------------------

Paramount Pictures has announced plans to fast-track a remake of Footloose, with plans to start filming in the Spring of 2009. Zac Efron was cast as Ren in the new movie,[4] but he later dropped out, reportedly saying that he wanted to take a break from musicals.[5] Kenny Ortega is announced as director, with Peter Sollett re-writing the script and Dylan Sellers, producer of The Replacements, Craig Zadan and Neil Meron as co-producers.[6] It will be filmed in Utah, like the original. It has been reported that Chace Crawford, of Gossip Girl fame, has screen tested for Kevin Bacon's role of Ren. Derek Hough, of Dancing with the Stars fame, is also rumored to be a front-runner for the role of Ren. Hough played Ren in the musical version of Footloose on stage in London

    • Same thing here...*TWANG*  I took a hacksaw to mine and screwed a black wire nut cap on the cut end.
    • I've fished it once about 10yrs ago Ice fishing from fishermans wharf....caught one perch in 3 days.   I was thinking about trying the lake once again with my wheel house..but it looks to be shut down. I talked to a guy from the Mille lacs area last winter at upper red, and he said the lake was great and it was the best he'd had for large fish ever on the lake.   I did did some reading and seen quite a few different views. The one I found most compelling and seemed to make the most sense after reading and looking at data was the view of a walleye population being mismanaged with slots, allowing for way to many large fish that have basicly eaten themselves out of food with the baitfish they prey on. Which in turn turned them into predators of their own young walleye. Hence the collapse of the walleye.
    • sorry about the bad title
    • 2014 F 150 and I would like to get a shorter antenna to avoid the slapping on the garage door.  I did the Googs and saw all sorts of them for under $20.  I don't know anything about this stuff and wonder if the baby ones work.  Any recommendations will be appreciated. Thanks for your time. Tom

    • Even if you kept them you probably wouldn't like the taste,   assuming you want to keep some to eat.  Trout are sad table fare, generally foul tasting and mushy. However they are a delight to pursue,  especially with light tackle.  And remember to use barbless hooks which make it easier on the trout and much easier on your hand,  ear or arm when you hook yourself. Enjoy your day on the water. You'll find,  as a noted angler once said, that trout do not live in ugly places.
    • The best  the public can hope for  is LESS political involvement and LESS lobbying pressure by  commercial interests most impacted by poor fishing in the lake. Generally speaking, if  trained and educated fishery managers are left to their own devices it will be better for the resource. It is no picnic for the F&G professionals as they are pounded by commercial interests on one hand and politicians,  who mostly mean well, on the other hand. Chances are we won't see much lessening of pressure from the resort, bar, bait and other commercial interests so that means anglers and going to have to suck it up, try to understand what the Department faces and fish other species or find other lakes. It is mighty easy to find someone to blame but the finger probably points right at YOU.  
    • Lots of different fish to chase in that lake. Just switch up your target fish and try something different.

      Conserving Mille Lacs walleye population requires regulation changes

      Mille Lacs Lake Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) for summer 2017

      Conserving Mille Lacs walleye population requires regulation changes

      Walleye fishing on Mille Lacs Lake will remain closed until Aug. 11 to protect the walleye fishery, and ensure its long-term health and sustainability into the future

      To extend the walleye fishing season through Labor Day, the state will allow for an additional 11,000 pounds of walleye harvest on Mille Lacs 

      New solutions are being sought to rebuild and sustain a healthy Mille Lacs walleye fishery

      New fisheries data collected by the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources show the total safe harvest allocation for walleyes on Mille Lacs Lake (44,800 pounds) has already been exceeded this season. To protect the fishery and ensure the long-term sustainability of Mille Lacs Lake’s walleye population, the DNR announced today that walleye fishing will remain closed until Friday, Aug. 11.

      In order to extend the walleye fishing season through Labor Day, the state will allow for an additional 11,000 pounds of walleye harvest. Catch-and-release walleye fishing will run from Friday, Aug. 11, through Monday, Sept. 4, for the Labor Day weekend. Walleye fishing will then be closed from Tuesday, Sept. 5, through Thursday, Nov. 30.

      As these regulation changes were announced, Minnesota DNR Commissioner Tom Landwehr reiterated the state’s commitment to rebuilding and sustaining a healthy walleye fishery in Mille Lacs Lake.

      “Improving the walleye population in Mille Lacs is a top priority for the DNR,” Landwehr said. “We deeply regret the hardships these new regulations will cause for anglers and business owners. But they are essential to protect and enhance the future of walleye fishing in the lake for future generations. We will continue doing everything we can to understand the challenges facing the walleye fishery, and take whatever actions we can to resolve this very difficult situation.”

      Landwehr and DNR fisheries chief Don Pereira noted that allowing for additional catch-and-release fishing in August is essential for area anglers, businesses, and Mille Lacs area communities. The decision to allow for this additional harvest was made with input from the Mille Lacs Fisheries Advisory Committee.

      “We want to allow as much walleye fishing on Mille Lacs as possible,” Pereira said. “So even though state anglers already have caught their quota of fish, the DNR will dip into the allowed conservation overage to reopen the season on Aug. 11.”

      Through the closure, anglers on Mille Lacs Lake may fish for all other species in the lake including bass, muskellunge and northern pike. When fishing for other species, only artificial baits and lures will be allowed in possession, except for anglers targeting northern pike or muskie, who may fish with sucker minnows longer than 8 inches.

      A prohibition on night fishing will remain in place from 10 p.m. to 6 a.m. through Nov. 30. However, anglers may fish for muskie and northern pike at night, but may only use artificial lures longer than 8 inches or sucker minnows longer than 8 inches. Bowfishing for rough fish also is allowed at night but possession of angling equipment is not allowed and only rough fish may be in possession.

      Understanding walleye fishing quotas on Mille Lacs this year, and why that quota was reached earlier than predicted
      The DNR and the Chippewa bands that cooperatively manage Mille Lacs Lake agreed this year to harvest quotas of 44,800 pounds for state anglers and 19,200 pounds for tribal fishing. They also agreed that up to 75,000 pounds of walleye could be harvested from the lake from Dec. 1, 2016 to Nov. 30, 2017.

      That agreement allows the state to use a built-in buffer – the 11,000 pounds difference between the 75,000 pounds conservation cap and the 64,000 pounds combined harvest quotas – in an attempt to allow catch-and-release walleye fishing through Labor Day, following the mid-summer closure. Bi-weekly creel surveys show that state anglers already have reached their quota.

      “The DNR is using its full allotment to maximize opportunities to fish for walleye on Mille Lacs without violating our agreement,” Pereira said. “The DNR, just like area businesses, would greatly prefer to not have fishing restrictions in place. But sustaining and stabilizing Mille Lacs’ walleye population is our primary obligation and public responsibility.”

      Continuing the walleye fishing closure will reduce the number of fish that die after being caught and released, a condition known as hooking mortality. The likelihood of fish suffering hooking mortality increases as water temperatures warm.

      High walleye catch rates on Mille Lacs have increased DNR fishing projections. A hot walleye bite attracted more anglers to the lake, resulting in angler effort that is about double what it was in 2016.

      “Cooler than normal temperatures kept hooking mortality rates low, but more anglers fished Mille Lacs, particularly catching walleye longer than 20 inches,” Pereira said. “That increased the poundage of fish caught and put us over our walleye quota.”

      According to the DNR, bigger fish are biting, in part, because there is a shortage of food for larger walleye. Last fall’s assessment showed that larger walleye were thinner than average.

      Mille Lacs’ hot bite also reflects the findings of studies done in many other fisheries that show catchability actually increases when fish population drops. In Mille Lacs, walleye congregate in preferred spots rather than disperse evenly throughout the lake. Fewer fish in the lake means there is more room in the preferred spots for fish to gather, creating a situation where a larger percentage of the population is in position to be caught rather than gathering in a less preferred but less fished area.

      More information about Mille Lacs Lake, the regulation adjustments and management of the fishery is available on the DNR page at www.mndnr.gov/millelacslake.

      New solutions are being sought to improve and sustain a healthy walleye fishery
      The DNR announced in June that a new external review team of scientists will take a fresh look at Mille Lacs Lake’s walleye fishery, using all of the best science available to gain a better understanding of the lake. This new review, led by walleye expert Dr. Chris Vandergoot of the U.S. Geological Survey, will provide additional recommendations to improve fisheries management of the lake, and contribute to a long-term solution to improving and sustaining a healthy walleye fishery for future generations. The group’s report is expected in time to help guide and inform fisheries management decisions for the 2018 season.

      DNR encourages Minnesotans to fish for other abundant species on Mille Lacs Lake
      As today’s walleye fishing regulation changes were announced, the DNR encouraged all Minnesotans to visit Mille Lacs Lake to fish the other abundant species that the lake has to offer. Mille Lacs Lake’s other opportunities for top-notch fishing will not be affected by the regulation adjustment.

      Bassmaster Magazine named Mille Lacs the nation’s best bass lake in June and will send 50 of the country’s best anglers to the lake In September for its Angler of the Year tournament. Northern pike abound in Mille Lacs, along with muskellunge. In early July, a woman from southern Minnesota caught and released in Mille Lacs what may have been Minnesota’s largest-ever muskellunge.

      Mille Lacs Lake Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) for summer 2017
      Q: What is happening with the walleye season this summer on Mille Lacs Lake?

      A: The closure that began July 8 and was set to end July 28 is being extended by two weeks. That means walleye fishing will reopen at 6:01 a.m. on Aug. 11 for catch-and-release only through Labor Day. A night fishing closure also will remain in place from 10 p.m. to 6 a.m. through Nov. 30.

      Q: How does this affect fishing for other species?

      A: Fishing regulations for other species such as smallmouth bass, muskie and northern pike remain the same. During the night closure, there is an exception for muskie and northern pike anglers using artificial lures and sucker minnows longer than 8 inches.

      Q: Why did the DNR extend the closure?

      A: While the DNR wants to allow as much walleye fishing on Mille Lacs as possible, the state is also required to abide by cooperative agreements made with eight American Indian Chippewa bands. The two weeks of additional closure allows the state to abide by a harvest quota set earlier this year with the bands.

      The DNR and the bands agreed to harvest quotas of 44,800 pounds for state anglers and 19,200 pounds for tribal fishing. They also agreed that up to 75,000 pounds of walleye could be sustainably harvested from the lake from Dec. 1, 2016 to Nov. 30, 2017 in order to conserve the population

      That agreement allows the state to use a built-in buffer – the 11,000 pounds difference between the conservation cap of 75,000 pounds and the combined harvest quota of 64,000 pounds – in an attempt to allow catch-and-release walleye fishing through Labor Day, following the mid-summer closure.

      The latest creel survey data shows that state anglers reached their quota of 44,800 pounds of walleye caught from Mille Lacs in early July. Even though state anglers already have caught their quota of fish, the DNR is dipping into the allowed conservation reserve in order to reopen the season on Aug. 11.

      Q: Why has the walleye population in Mille Lacs declined? What is the DNR doing in the long-term to try to conserve the population?

      A: The vast majority of walleye that hatch do not survive to their third autumn in the lake. Walleye numbers have declined to the point that it has become important to protect spawning-sized walleye, particularly the class of walleye that hatched in 2013. It is important to protect the large 2013 year class to replenish aging spawning stock.  Most males from the 2013 class are now mature, but females will not start to contribute in large numbers until next spring. The state is committed to conserving the population of walleyes born in 2013 to improve and rebuild a sustainable population for the future.

      Q: Why do we count hooking mortality during a closed walleye season?

      A: The amount that state anglers can kill (as spelled out in state-bands agreements) also must include fish that die as a result of hooking mortality, the fish that die after being caught and then released back into the water. During the closure, some anglers still catch walleye incidentally and some of those fish die after being released. Under the state-band agreements, those dead fish must be calculated and counted against the state’s allocation.

      Q: How did this cooperative management between the state and the bands of Mille Lacs Lake come to be?   

      A: Recall that in 1999, the U.S. Supreme Court upheld lower-court decisions that allowed the Mille Lacs band and seven other Chippewa bands to exercise off-reservation fishing and hunting rights. The lower federal court also set up guidelines, known as stipulations and protocols, for both sides to follow. These stipulations and protocols provide a framework for how the bands and the state must work cooperatively to manage shared natural resources, including Mille Lacs fish.  In their agreements, the DNR and the bands are required to annually establish the number of walleye that can safely be harvested from Mille Lacs while ensuring sufficient remaining walleye in the lake for a healthy fishery.

      Q: If the walleye population is in decline, why are anglers catching so many?

      A: Fish are biting for two reasons. First, there is a shortage of food for larger walleye. Last fall’s assessment showed that larger walleye were thinner than average. Second, studies in many fisheries show that catchability actually increases when fish population decline.

      In Mille Lacs, walleye congregate in preferred spots rather than disperse evenly throughout the lake. Fewer fish in the lake means there’s more room in the preferred spots for fish to gather, and anglers find these spots where they can catch a larger portion of fish. Finally, while the walleye population has decreased considerably (by half or more), the amount of fishing pressure has declined by a lot more. This means that there are more walleye per angler fishing Mille Lacs today.

      Q: How is the DNR using science and research to help the walleye population?

      A: Mille Lacs Lake is the most studied lake in Minnesota. It is also a complex and changing system. The agency conducts a large number of surveys on the lake annually. These surveys include assessing the abundance of young walleye; setting 52 nets to assess adult abundance; using fine-mesh nets each summer to determine abundance of food (prey fish) for walleye; and using interviews with anglers around the lake (called creel surveys) to estimate the number of fish anglers are catching. The DNR also periodically tags walleye and other species to provide actual population estimates. We are tagging bass this year in cooperation with angling groups, and will be tagging walleye in 2018 and 2019 when the 2013 year class will be reaching full maturity.

      Q: What is the purpose of the external review the DNR has initiated?

      A: The DNR has asked Dr. Chris Vandergoot to lead an independent review of the DNR’s scientific approaches to manage Mille Lacs Lake. Vandergoot is a key member of the international team that co-manages a very significant walleye fishery in Lake Erie. He works for the U.S. Geological Survey in the Sandusky Lake Erie Biological station in Ohio. His review report will be available to the public in early 2018 and will help inform fisheries management decisions for the 2018 season.

      Q: What does the future look like for Mille Lacs walleye?

      A: It is unlikely that Mille Lacs walleye production will return to the levels that state anglers enjoyed over 20 years ago.  The ecosystem of Mille Lacs is going through extreme change, starting with increased water clarity in the mid-1990s, to impacts today from aquatic invasive species such as spiny water flea and zebra mussels. Longer growing seasons are also helping some species such as smallmouth bass but may be hurting others. While walleye will still be abundant, the future fishery will be more diverse, offering angling opportunities for a greater variety of fish.
