Films I have rated one and a half stars or less.
Who's watching who?
Modern remake of Rear Window in which the lead character is paralyzed and lives in a high-tech home filled with assistive technology.
I don't even have a review.
Just an unhealthy curiosity to watch this and figure out who thought this would be a good idea.
Who Can It Be Now? by Men At Work has some very similar vocals to Chromeo.
"Rear Window" is a made for television (very obvious when watching the film) modern remake of the 1950s Classic that starred James Stewert and was directed by the late and great Alfred Hitchcock. This remake also stands out as Christopher Reeves' first film following his horrible accident in 1995 that left him paralyzed.
Reeves' casting in "Rear Window" is fitting, considering Reeves' character is also paralyzed - abit to a more extreme point. I think this made it easier for Reeves to get comfortable and relate to his character - and it shows. Daryl Hannah is good in this but her romantic subplot with Reeves is unfortunately downplayed dispite their obvious chemistry. Plus, her absence from the climax is headscratching…
I've re-watched the original just to watch this - just like any remake, it's lame. True Grit, The Day the Earth Stood Still, and now Rear Window are the worst remakes I've ever seen. Reeves is still pretty likeable though.
Not sure what the point was of making this except to give Chiratopher Reeve some work. While he is no James Stewart, he does okay. That said, the filmmakers tried to modernize the story and failed miserably. It's watchable on its own. You just have to not try and remind yourself that Hitchcock did it first and so much better.
Wow. What an absolute shame.
Such a terrible remake, no redeeming qualities.
Nice to see Reeve have an opportunity to get out of the house and do some work. He should have made this a detective series. He just goes around solving crime he can see through his window. Each week it's a new apartment complex.
Why was this even made????
Rimejk Hičkokovog filma.
Not nearly as good as the original, however I was impressed with Christopher Reeve in this and how they managed to use his paralysis to the story's advantage.
Total Run Time of less than 90 minutes. Have I seen them all? Yes, but that doesn't mean I'll vouch…
A list of films where the location manager could take a nice holiday. Suggestions welcome.
