:D:D:D

Trouble is; a 2-hour film of key-hole surgery just can't compete with Fantastic Voyage, even if you dress up Raquel Welch in a saucy nurse's outfit.

No, you imply; I infer.

For some reason, people seem to confuse 'picaresque' with 'picturesque' these days. :cry:

I don't see what's 'unfortunate' about that.

It works on more than one level; as has been pointed out, most sci-fi films reflect aspects of contemporary society. Intentionally or unintentionally,...

'Dissing'? Oh dear.

Still, that's the least of the author's problems. The TL;DR version seems to be 'Whine, whine, it's all your fault that I'm a pathetic, self-absorbed loser with an inflated...

Well, quite.

I'm struggling to understand the OP's point here. He seems to think that a film can be improved by re-shooting it, featuring technology that fits a current audience's conceptions. ...
