It seems again I am right,I don't want be I just usually am...at least when it comes to bad movies. You see this is why I don't bother,I just get a bad feeling. I've seen the original and honestly I don't know why people feel the need to touch(destroy)a classic. That said I did go see the scene by scene remake of Psycho which wasn't really needed anyway but i digress.

From the preview and reviews alone said feeling:

Oh no not again! Due to lack of originality and a desire to produce safe(not meaning family fare)aka movies they know will sell,fine drama is turned action flick. Well maybe its a little more mystery than that but it sure ain't Sinatra.

Forget print,its dialogue that's dead.
