robocop-2014-posterWhen you look at the list of movies opening this month, you may feel you’re in a time warp.  We have three different remakes of films from the 1980’s. The 1987 film Robocop starred Peter Weller as a law enforcement cyborg. Joel Kinnaman takes over the lead role, co-starring with Samuel L. Jackson, Michael Keaton, and Gary Oldman.

 

about last night 2014 about last night 1986First there was a play called Sexual Perversity in Chicago by David Mamet. It was the story of two male office workers in the “Mr. Goodbar” era of the late 1970’s. Mamet’s raw language and bleak perspective on relationships was lightened up for the 1986 movie, retitled About Last Night. It starred Rob Lowe, Demi Moore, Jim Belushi and Elizabeth Perkins.

The remake stars Kevin Hart, Regina Hall, Michael Ealy, Joy Bryant, and Paula Patten.

The teen romance Endless Love was huge in 1981, with it-girl Brooke Shields and a hit song from Diana Ross and Lionel Ritchie. The remake stars Alex Pettyfer and Gabriella Wilde.  It is based on the novel by Scott Spencer about a teenage love that literally burns down the house.
