    Stop the remakes of perfectly good movies!

      Especially movies that are themelves sci-fi remakes of perfectly good plays!Kidding aside, the themes of Forbidden Planet (and, before it, The Tempest) are certainly always worth delving into, so I'm intrigued by this news. And even if this Forbidden Planet remake winds up awful, it doesn't retroactively destroy the earlier version…

      I agree stop the remakes unless they are equal or better. Please no more The Day The Earth Stood Still remakes. To much overdosed special effects and poor acting.

    These guys remake the classics because they don't have any good new ideas of their own – and they've got to keep churning out the product.One of the reasons I liked Forbidden Planet was I saw it as a major influence (a precursor) to Star Trek. What if Leslie Nielsen had played Captain Kirk? It would have been a different series – that's for sure!
