What, another remake? Somali pirates went for the Maersk Alabama again. This time, the ship had posted guards who repelled boarders, so this became an incident as opposed to an ordeal. So there’s at least that to be happy about.
But still; between a remake of the series V and redoing the film THE TAKING OF PELHAM 123, the film 2012 being far too reminiscent of WHEN WORLDS COLLIDE, and even talk that James Cameron owes Poul Anderson something for his next picture, is it too much to ask for new ideas? Or have we as a culture all become pirates in the end…?
