if you want a doo doo rhyme then come see me

I didn't know they were remaking The Taking of Pelham 1 2 3. I saw it on the marquee of the local theatre when I was home last weekend. If you don't know, the original was done in 1974 and starred Walter Matthau. The new movie has Denzel Washington in that role along with John Travolta, James Gandolfini, John Turturro, and Luis Guzman. Tony Scott is the director, who in the early 90s did a couple of my favorite action/crime movies, namely The Last Boyscout and True Romance. So this is promising, however, Scott hasn't made a watchable movie since '98's Enemy Of The State. So it'll probably suck.

Be sure to see the original, you won't be disappointed.

The other day I updated my master movie list with a bunch of new additions. I took those new additions and added some thoughts about some of them and have listed them below. If you feel like discussing any of them, fire away.
