Watch Poseidon - Alternative Versions.
Hollywood you better get your act together. Thanks you for spitting out
another INSTANTLY forgettable "Blockbuster" Thank God I only paid $4
dollars to see this. Not only can't the Studios come up with original
material. The material they remake is worse than the original. If this
crap keeps up you will have even less of an audience. A good cast given
nothing to chew on and a Director who has made great films and this is
what we get? 150 million and the Ballroom set in the original was more
Video games are so prevalent in society that I fear their mind numbing
influence is starting to permeate even NON video game derived movies.
The original movie was a good solid, involving movie. This remake takes
every element of the original and removes what made it involving. I
mean EVERY element. There are people out there making these decisions!!
And they are paid huge sums to make these decisions! With the talent in
front of and behind the camera this is truly frightening as this seems
to be the norm at the present.
Right from the start there is almost NO set up. We don't know where the
ship is, where it is sailing, even what ocean it's on! Things that
actually would create some atmosphere like the originals speech by the
Captain explaining the origin of Poseidon. Greek God of the Sea. They
are sailing on the Mediterranean, to Greece? Get it? Cheesy but
involving. You know it gives the proceedings some gravatis, some
mystery. In the remake we get nothing, we are are in Video game land,
we don't have time for such things.
Even the cause for the disaster has absolutely no set up. Happy new
year, bang, the tidal wave hits. Unlike the originals slow build up, as
it explained WHAT WAS HAPPENING AND WHY! Even the effects in the
original worked better. They were simpler but executed as a whole
created more of an impact because of the tension that was built up.
Again a sense of gravity, HUMAN INVOLVEMENT and Atmosphere! Even in the
original, Leslie Nielsen's corny grimace as the wave engulfs the ship.
It's goofy but you REMEMBER IT. You know a character we identify with
reacting to the impending disaster. It's a very basic cinematic
technique. But I guess todays more "sophisticated" audience don't need
this kind of thing anymore.
There is no human involvement in the wave hitting in this remake. The
Captain isn't called to the bridge, no build up, just some crew members
we've had no contact with running around. Absolutely unmemorable. The
effects are impressive but who cares, I'm not given anything to latch
Straight across the board EVERY situation is diminished from the
original. The scene chewing conflict between Gene Hackaman and Ernest
Borgnine is totally lost in the remake. There is NO conflict with the
characters. NONE! It's just one disaster to overcome to the next. You
know , like a VIDEO GAME.
Even the self sacrificing Shelly Winters death swim has almost no
emotional impact because the character doesn't return and die in front
of everybody. Like DUH! Hey screen writers perhaps you should learn of
something called ELEMENTS OF DRAMA!! Even if you have no talent you
could at least COPY the original, not make it worse! Absolutely mind
boggling!! If you WANTED to sabotage the original you couldn't have
done a better job. UNREAL! All you film lovers just keep repeating
"Things will get better" Repeat it like a prayer.
