Out of the Blue

Mel Gibson To Helm "Wild Bunch" Remake. I get that we're in the era of lost creativity remakes and reboots, but there are some movies that do not need to be remade. Sam Peckinpah westerns are definitely on that list, and The Wild Bunch should be at the top of it. Of course there's nothing about remaking a movie that actually harms the original, but Peckinpah's movie was an amazing reflection of its time, and I'd rather see it just stand alone.

Also, get off of my lawn!
