Such potential...wasted.... due to poor money management and planning.
I don't mean to pick on you specifically, but statements like this always confuse me. Did you really expect this re-make to be anything other than hot garbage? Did you honestly think there was more chance of this being good than of you winning the lottery tomorrow?
The original film was a personal, heartfelt statement from its writer and director, John Milius, on who he was as a man and an artist. It was a love letter to Sergio Leone. It was a story of Milius's own struggles in Hollywood, of being black-balled as a fiercely conservative man in the liberal, leftist culture of Hollywood.
Even then, a lot of things went right for Milius, from the immortal score by Basil Poledouris to an outstanding performance by James Earl Jones, to the casting of a young, unknown bodybuilder who turned out to be one of the greatest action stars ever.
You honestly thought some crappy re-make blatantly trying to cash in on nostalgia and name brand recommendation, which makes no statements and wants to avoid offending anyone was going to be good?!
It's strange to me that Hollywood can keep suckering people in like this.
