I haven't been following that one, since I'm not a fan of Superman.
But also, I do agree with Spiderman, even though I'm contradicting myself a bit here. I liked what they did, thought it was pretty well executed on most parts. Peter Parker was actually made believeable rather than just made a stereotypical Nerd. Characters had shades of grey rather than just black and white, people had story and motiv.
Better than the 2001 one, for sure.
But, originalilty or lack thereof, too many people reap the benefitsof the industry (from artists (myself included) to drivers and caterers), that it outweights my need for entertainment, so I'll just crawl back to my cave and will continue to nag.
Keep in mind I'm not talking about Superman Returns. I can't consider that a "remake" as it was more of a story that continued later.
I'm referring to Man of Steel which is a remake by Zack Snyder http://www.mtv.com/news/articles/168...omic-con.jhtml

Dredd was based on Dirty Harry to some extent, so having an Eastwoodesque voice is pretty legitimate. The fact it's now overused as a caricature of ubertestosterone inflated masculinity, doesn't mean that the ubertestosterone inflated Dredd shouldn't use it. He used to live in the 'Rowdy Yates' area of Mega City one! There is however, no reason Batman should talk like that...
a direct sequel to Superman 2. 3 and 4 have been disregarded. (Good thing
though I like the allusion to Brainiac that the supercomputer in 3 was, IRC
it was actually meant to be Brainiac in the original script.)
Also as Vermis stated, Dredd is not so much a remake as an attempt to
provide a new adaption on the Dredd mythos as it bears no connection to the
previous effort. Ala Batman Begins.
@arshes: figured as much.
Knowing Snyder's behind it, I'm sure it'll be visually awesome.
@Velocity: I have a hat to eat.
for voice, and look they might have gone with Michael Wincott. His voice is naturally badass.
Amanda Tapping for judge anderson would have been interresting too, but I don't know much about the actress who is playing her in the reboot.
I'm willing to give this one some hope, despite the slo-mo gimmick. I bet the guys responsible for the movie really cursed when they saw the plot of The Raid though.
My beef with the voice is that, Keaton's Batman doesn't feel like he needs to intimidate people. He's intimidating enough! He's the f**ing Batman, he doesn't have to try to be scary. I take for instance, the first scnee in the '85 movie.
"Who are you?"
You've got a guiy, holding a grown man over a legde, with straight, outstretched arms.
And he'd dead calm?
That's powerful! Right there!
Bale's Batman though, is trying to be fearful, with the low gravelling voice (which most often, looks like he's drooling), and in your face antics.
To me, feels a bit like the barking puppydog, rather than a crime lord's bogeyman.
But! Don't get me wrong, Nolan's movies are ace! This is just a detail that kinda bugs me if I think too much about it (and to be fair, never thought about it until I interneted).
