I really liked the first one, but is a remake necessary?

Getting poor reviews.

The first was fairly pish TBH.
My favourite comment about it came from Kevin Bacon during an interview that was also a retrospective on his characters in 5 or 6 selected films over the years. All he could say about Flatliners was "oh man.....well there's not much to say about me in that, I was just kind of IN it"

It wasn't a classic but it's grown on me over the years. And about Kevin Bacon, Flatliiners was before he good.

Doesn't that sum up his career in film?

Well lol etc. I don't get the current Footloose obsession, it was crap at the time and it's still crap.

How does he compare to Dennis?

Poorly but then doesn't everyone?

You know Dennis was in the remake of Footloose, right.

I thought this post would be about the Labour Party conference.

I don't use this hideous acronym often, but, OMG! There's a Footloose remake?

Yeah from about 5 years ago. I didn't see it.

I've never knowingly seen all of the original, not from beginning to end. I think I've only seen the "chicken" scene on the tractors

If you ever get involved in trying to resuscitate after a cardiac arrest, one of the first things you learn is that if a patient has a flat ecg tracing ( a flatline) there is no coming back and they are going to die. Also, near death experiences are just that and are of no relevance in understanding what happens when we die. I saw the original film and considered it utter tosh, I shall not bother with the remake.

I noticed this on rotten tomatoes and its rating was 4% or something.

Well worth missing it seems.

Cheers
