I guess the saddest part is the creation of the Archive website wasn't really to sell rare material per se but to sell some Politically Incorrect titles that we as a nation have become too sensitive to view or may upset today's 'diverse' crowd. It's almost like they are saying 'Freedom of Speech American Titles' with a SHHH! pass it along whisper. Didn't mean to stray OT but it pertained to the Archive website and channel that may end up in the channel store once it works it's bugs out. I hope it succeeds.
Seriously? You really think that the site is a way to "quietly" give people access to politically incorrect material?

I had personal dealings with them and respect them for warnings and not extreme punishment. A while back WB had a ton of these titles dropped entirely from their Main Stream catalogue from 1927 to 1972. They were handed off to a company to be destroyed. The remaining DVDs that is. They ended up being sold at your local big lots stores which infuriated WB. There's a lot more to this story and more complex than what's on the surface. Ask yourself this though because I'm in a hurry. Are all these remakes from the mid 90's onward just laziness and convenience on the studio's part or are the gluttony of P.C. remakes covering up original films which most kids (20's and under) wouldn't go back that far to watch? BTW, they don't teach this in college. Just the opposite. Believe what ya want. I'm just giving you some backstory. Either way have a good day.
Someday the human race will pay for all of the machines that have been stereotyped as purely evil in oh-so-many science fiction films. Let us only hope that a copy of Wall-E survives to redeem us.FredNugent99 wrote:When doing a re-make, do today's filmmakers avoid the stereotypes that may have appeared in the originals? Of course, they do. Such things may not sit well with today's filmakers, and besides, they're making them for modern audiences who (hopefully) see things differently.
