We’ll all getting fed up with all these remakes, and as a big fan of the original movie, I personally thinks it’s great that Lori Petty, who co-starred with Keanu Reeves and Patrick Swayze in Kathryn Bigelow’s action classic, has made her feelings loud and clear about the Point Break remake., telling The Hollywood Reporter:

“That’s some stupid shIt right there, I think it’s the dumbest thing I’ve ever heard. Really? Patrick Swayze, Keanu Reeves, Kathryn Bigelow – what are you gonna do? What are you thinking? Stupid! Somebody tweeted this really cute picture of me [from the film], and it said, ‘What’s this pig board piece of sh*t?’ which is what I say to Keanu, but it was about the new movie. I’m like, ‘Seconded’. I got a phone call from my manager: ‘Why did you diss the new Point Break?’ Because that’s bullshit! That’s some stupid shit right there!”

Good on you Lori, who also said that she won’t watch the trailer for the reboot.

The new Point Break is directed by Ericson Core from a screenplay by Kurt Wimmer. It stars Luke Bracey, Édgar Ramírez, Delroy Lindo, Teresa Palmer and Ray Winstone, and opens on Christmas Day in the US and January 8, 2016 in the UK.


And on to another unwanted remake, Big Trouble In Little China. As laid-back as usual, John Carpenter, director of the original 1986 version of the crazy fantasy actioner starring Kurt Russell and Kim Cattrall, doesn’t really seem to be that bothered one way or another about the recently announced remake. The legendary director, who seems like he may one day end up with all of his films remade, spoke to the Wall Street Journal last Thursday about whether he would be involved in the new version.

“I’m ambivalent about a remake. On the other hand, it depends on how much they pay me.”

According to Bleeding Cool, Carpenter took part in a Facebook thread about the remake, saying that he was not involved in the project but was “fine” with the new movie because he didn’t write the original film, adding: “No harm, no foul.”

Screenwriters Ashley Miller and Zack Stentz, who have writing credits on Thor and X-Men: First Class, are working on the new film’s script, which so far doesn’t have a director but will star Dwayne Johnson.

I'm a huge film fan and will watch pretty much any type of film, from Martial Arts to Westerns, from Romances [though I don't really like Romcoms!]] to Historical Epics. Though I most certainly 'have a life', I tend to go to the cinema twice a week! However,ever since I was a kid, sneaking downstairs when my parents had gone to bed to watch old Universal and Hammer horror movies, I've always been especially fascinated by horror, and though I enjoy all types of horror films, those Golden Oldies with people like Boris Karloff and Christopher Lee probably remain my favourites. That's not to say I don't enjoy a bit of blood and gore every now and again though, and am also a huge fan of Italian horror, I just love the style.


  1. Good on Lori! Love Point Break, the original. It’s a classic. I can already tell this remake hasn’t the heart and soul that Kathryn’s had. They just seem to have shoe-horned every extreme sport they can think of into it so it’s a thrill film. Don’t worry Lori. I won’t be watching either.

  2. I love when people like her find a way to try to get their name back out there after not being in the spotlight for 25 years. I’ve got news for her, the first one was atrocious and this one looks even worse.
