I Like the Coen Brothers, but............WTF?

I like Jeff Bridges, Matt Damon and Josh Brolin just fine, but this is just wrong on so many levels.


Some movies should never be re-made.*

*Or "reconceived" as I'm sure the Coen brothers will say. Note how they emphasize that they're staying true to the book, not the original movie. Except that the book sucked, a mediocre purple-sage Westerner written by a hack. The book didn't make the movie great. The Duke made the movie great.

Casablanca, Lawrence of Arabia, Stars Wars, Caddyshack.......films such as these are sacrosanct. One simply cannot improve on greatness, and it's folly to try.

The Duke was peerless but the Coen brothers made a better movie.
