Sometimes the movie is so good and/or so iconic that remaking it is redundant. Sometimes the material is so insanely cheesy that remaking it is redundant. Sometimes the material is blah that remaking it is redundant. Somebody is remaking "The Poseidon Adventure" (1972) with Kurt Russell, Richard Dreyfus and Emmy Rossum. This is a cheesy disaster flick about an ocean liner that turns upside down, trapping the passengers. They must fight their way up to the top of the boat. (Note: Physics makes the premise of this movie impossible. The boat would break in half in these circumstances, as the Titanic did.) Gene Hackman had the lead in the original and hammed it up furiously in an effort to keep himself warm. What a waste of time and money.
