I am wanting to see it but I'm saddened to a point that these high paid brainiacs can't think of anything but remade movies. I hear the Broadway show Spiderman has been bumped back...again!
..Spiderman..On Broadway...With a multimillion dollar score from Bono and the Edge.

If my dad heard you say that you would instantly be kicked out of the house. John Wayne is the man where do you think Sergio Leone and Clint got there insperation from.

Now im excited about this movie but have a feeling that it wont live up to the Duke's standard. Then again i could be wrong it might be totally bad ass!

I have been impressed with Bridge's work - he has much more 'range' than Duke Wayne ever did, though John Wayne had a tanker load of 'presence'. Problem is, he only ever played ONE part - JOHN WAYNE. Just different outfits and scripts.
I usually do not care for 'remakes' either, but will watch this one and judge it on it's own merits. The trailer scenes look good. Supposed to be somewhat 'grittier' than the original.

And.... don't think I don't like The Duke - I do collect his movies - he is THE iconic Cowboy actor!

I saw it the other night. Pretty good. It sounds like everyone needs to spit. The girl nailed her part.

Just got back from seeing it. It was good, but I guess I was expecting more. I agree with Robo that the girl nailed her part.
