No, no and more no. The remakes are wrong and the vehicles, let's don't even go there. They are simultaneously destroying two masterpieces of what where the 80s. Understand I am not calling the movies themselves masterpieces but they are a classics of their time. I have yet to see a successful movie be remade better .
It is a shame that the dedication and skill of this hobby are not appreciated by the masses. The costs of a hobby is only truly relevant if you can't afford to even be involved. I'm guessing most if not all of us here are involved at some level and have spent a different % of our time and incomes to get the same satisfaction. But in the end, it matters nothing. Let's just enjoy the ride and awesome builds and forget the cost and where our builds will end up. This is just my opinion, I don't mind hearing others.
This created some interesting responses to my my post but no on the HOA,s. This was about codes and inspectors in the housing industry turning down something built to code and approved blueprints and then saying how it should be done (opposite of said plans and codes and approved engineering ). This is the classic example of the turtle on the post.
A 58. I find questionnaires like this interesting but they can be very vague and answer driven. Not to say this was, but sometimes (D- none of the above) is the correct but unavailable answer. We are a creative bunch none the less, at least when the mood strikes. Sigh-come on mood.
In my opinion it was worth the wait. Dialogue and story, forget about it. The cinematography, setting, and action are worth the price of admission. I can see some serious kitbashing from this movie and I can hardly wait to see this movies influence show up here. One may be from me if the stars are aligned right.
