  1. …you can’t improve on some things in life…This movie was simply a work of genius, because whenever you can make a movie that kids, and adults can enjoy and share together,and laugh, and talk about when it’s over, again and again…that’s a precious commodity in my book…and it was in large part due to the brilliant casting…which made it more then just a cute fluff piece (that like a lot of similar movies, are cast aside and forgotten)…with a different cast, this movie may not have worked nearly as well…these particular people brought together, with their unique acting abilities, made this the beloved movie it still is today, and will be for years to come…😉

  2. I agree with him. It’s time Hollyweird got off its collective lazy ass and coem up with more original shit. Hell, most of the MCU hasn’t even hit the bargain bin at Walmart yet, and there’s already fights over their reboots.

  3. Is he now wearing a rug? Or did he have a hair transplant? Either way, he looks much better…..For a long while there, he looked kinda like me, poor guy…….Head jealous of upper lip….lol!

  4. If someone was copying the Mona Lisa, it would be obvious that no real talent is involved in remaking an original. It’s disrespectful to the original and all involved to think that “new” means “better”.

  5. It doesn’t need a reboot. It’s a classic. It’s fine the way it is. Some movies just need to be off limits from reboots and The Princess Bride is definitely one of them!

  6. No sequel, no remake… It’s perfect the way it is as a standalone. If the kids today don’t understand it, fuckem – you failed as a parent or they just don’t deserve it. Anything else would just cheapen the experience or just be written off and forgotten like Zoolander 2 for example.
