Interesting that they seem to be recreating moments from the movie.

Lisa Kudrow was unimpressive in that trailer . . .

I'm willing to give this a shot as the original terrified and thrilled me as a kid, but it isn't looking promising from that trailer. It wasn't all bad, but the points it was selling weren't hitting.

I'll give it a shot but the trailer gave me 'meh' feelings about it.
I appreciate the homages from the movie but I'm not a fan of the forced comedy bits. The movie didn't have any of that. It's was organic. One of my favorite parts was on the Titanic when Randall was talking to Kevin and his cigar ashes were falling on his head during the conversation.

Kudrow was awful in the preview.

Looks like she’s just phoning it in.

So they’re not afraid to use little people, they just don’t want them in main roles?

^ Probably a move by Apple to cover their asses against accusations of ableism with the lead cast.

But hey, they could've made all the bandits into politically correct "magical creature" CGI monstrosities like Disney is doing with the dwarf characters in their live-action Snow White. God, I hate modern Hollywood.

i just watched the movie again. been a very long time. it still holds up. the cameos, the players (RIP Shelley Duvall), story were all so great and was still was last night. really looking forward to this new one. especially, considering they both created What We Do In The Shadows. Waititi and Jermaine Clement.
