    Oh, and I forgot about the original Rollerball. (But stay the fuck away from the John McTiernan remake -- quite easily the worst movie ever made, IMO.)

    The original story was far more interesting (and King wrote it in two days, he claims, round the clock).
    "Hey Capa -- We're only stardust." ~ "Sunshine"

    “Pleasure to me is wonder—the unexplored, the unexpected, the thing that is hidden and the changeless thing that lurks behind superficial mutability. To trace the remote in the immediate; the eternal in the ephemeral; the past in the present; the infinite in the finite; these are to me the springs of delight and beauty.” ~ H.P. Lovecraft

    The story seemed a lot better than the actual movie. That's hollywood for you.

    I totally agree there, the original Rollerball was fantastic, although I think the remakes of Deathrace were rubbish too, perhaps OK as stand alone movies but I dont like their association, even in name with the original one. The original Deathrace was a good reflection on infatuation with violence or bloodsports, even if it can appear a little like the wacky races to a modern viewer, the remakes were like some sort of gritty reboot of Too Fast, Too Furious.

    No they aren't.
