    Default Remake a movie into a whole different genre

    I guess the best example of what i’d like us to go for is how The Seven Samurai was remade as a western.
    Only, instead of choosing new actors, swap out different characters, to make something that works.
    It sounds weird I know, but it’s not too hard and kinda fun. Kicking things off...

    THE WATCHMEN, remade as a send up of Urban/Blaxploitation movies:



    HANCOCK-
    is immortal and, like Dr. Manhattan, the only metahuman on earth. His presence has been causing political upheaval for decades now.
    FOXY BROWN and COLOMBIANA-
    are Hancock’s past and present ass kicking lovers, standing in for Silk Spectres I and II. One knew, and one’s learned, how hard it is to love a virtual god.
    SHAFT and SHAFT-
    uncle and nephew, as mentor and protege Nite Owls I and II. They’ve both worked w. Hancock, and seen first hand how distant he’s become.



    BLACK DYNAMITE-
    like The Comedian, he’d long turned from the heroic life and started working for “The Man”. His mysterious murder kicks things off.
    UNDERCOVER BROTHER-
    has been on the run for years, acting more like a Conspiracy Brother; like Rorschach, questioning everything. He’s investigating Black Dynamite’s death.
    BRUCE LEROY-
    master of The Glow, considered to be the ultimate physical specimen. He has a twisted plan to neutralize Hancock and save the world. He can also do a bullet catch, even better than Ozymandias.

    that sounds kinda fun... although, personally, I would have put Superfly in the Comedian's place. given some of Black Dynamite's crazy Adam West style "Bat-deductions" and conspiratorial theories... he would have been my first choice as Rorschach

    Remake : The Room as a proper Independent drama. Female characters are better fleshed out. Johnny is a troubled man with egotistical delusions and suicidal thoughts. His relationships with friends and girlfriends have become complex and confusing. A GOOD version basically (but where's the fun in that?)

    Hereditary as a wacky slapstick comedy. Daughter is "duh, duh poopy pants" disabled. Son is a super stoner who gets whacked around like Bruce Campbell in Evil dead II...

    Good point on Black Dynamite.
    I think I just wanted someone really intimidating as my Comedian stand in though. Plus, I only ever watched Superfly once as a kid, and it didn’t make any impression on me. I’ve never seen the remake.

    Lol well if you want intimidating Michale Jai White is as good as it gets. Not only a large man but IRL is a legit badass. Got like 8 or 9 Black Belts in different martial arts and Joe Rogan tells a story about MJW breaking the chain after kicking a heavy bag like it was nothing. And then hes such a humble guy he tried to play it off like the chain was old and was about to break anyway. Despite Rogan who reportedly has insane kicking power hit the same bag mutiple times prior. MJW is one of those guys I just want to see work more cause I like him as an actor and hes just legit decent Humanbein by all accounts. They should give Bronze Tiger his own show on CW or the DC app.



    As far as home alone. Just make the robber more then two guys. Maybe a team of 6. And instead of funny hijinks, the traps are deadly and the kids a psychopath(He already kinda is in the original lol).

    Jaws as a “fake documentary” (think Blair Witch, Chronicle, etc).

    i've done this completely mentally with the movie Baby Boy. it's actually great if you go in with the mindset it's a comedy.

    This sounds fun.

    Let me try. Fight Club as a superhero movie.

    The unnamed narrator is Clark Kent. Tyler Durden is Superman. And the Fight Club is where metahumans duke it out.


    Superheroics is outlawed. And metahumans are part of a consumerist society where they do mundane jobs to buy stuff they don't need. Just like Fight Club with bits of Watchmen. Our sleep deprived bespectacled hero meets Superman, (who he does not know is himself). Together they form a fight club where metahumans like them duke it out. Things go out of hand as Superman forms a group of urban outlaws who bring down the 'overlords'. Just like the Fight Club movie. The film ends with a cured Clark Kent overseeing the chaos unleashed as the society goes down, hand in hand with this f'ed up Lois Lane. Just like a Fight Club should.

    Agree; i’d love for him to get an actual costume, too.

    I thought the same thing watching Don’t Breathe. A few tweaks and Culkin would owned in that...

    That might actually make it scarier.

    Blade Runner as a war movie, set in space. Just spin the timeline back a few years and have the setting be a military base off world with Roy as an elite solder, Pris as the prostitute with a heart of gold, Zhora as a crazed assassin and Leon as a sort of Sgt. Zale mechanic type. Rachael can be the commanding officer and Deckard has been hired to locate and exterminate possible replicants under her command. "We're trying to fight a war here!"
    Every day is a gift, not a given right.
