I don’t understand why people automatically write off Hollywood remakes and the people who like them.
I mean, some of them are terrible, that’s true - but there are some good ones that get overlooked, just because they’re lumped in with all the others.
For example (and this is probably sacrilegious), I preferred the American remakes of both The Ring and A Tale of Two Sisters. The fact that the intelligence and movie knowledge of people in the same boat as me is brought into question because of that makes me want to punch someone in the face.
Just because I prefer those remakes doesn’t mean I need ‘everything spelling out for me’, and it doesn’t mean I ‘don’t understand real scares.’ I just think the remakes were a lot tidier than the originals were. Of course, the original movies came up with the ideas, but maybe they were just executed a little better in the remakes.
“His professionalism was unbelievable. Miz is a guy that is working every day to get better. Regardless of what it is. Whether it’s in the weight room, his craft on the mic or his ability in the ring. He always looks like a star, he dresses very well. He just does the little things in the WWE, very well. He’s always accountable and reliable. You know, it’s the number one thing in his mind when he wakes up and the last thing he thinks about before he goes to bed. It’s extremely important to him and he prepares. There’s really very few people that prepare like he does and coming into this business I felt the same way about myself. I wanted to prepare, I wanted to be ready for anything they threw at me and I learned different ways to do that, through him. His attention to detail is very good and I always respected that about him.”—Alex Riley on The Miz (via fuckyeahalexrileyandthemiz)
