    Directed by Joe Dante (Gremlins) and starring Ethan Hawke and River Phoenix.

    It was kind of dwarfed that year with Goonies, The Breakfast Club, Teen Wolf, Commando, Weird Science, Silverado, Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome, Back to the Future, Pale Rider, D.A.R.Y.L., Falcon and the Snowman, Rambo II, Rocky IV, Witness, and other films in the theaters. :D

    Scarface Remake Nabs Chilean Filmmaker Pablo Larrain To Direct

    http://www.cinemablend.com/new/Scar...ean-Filmmaker-Pablo-Larrain-Direct-42226.html

    Are you ready to say hello to your little friend again? Okay, probably not, but a new Scarface is on the way. Universal has made this a top priority for a while now, grabbing bits and pieces from the 1932 version as well as the infamous Pacino/De Palma redo. This version was said to keep the Latin American roots from the ’83 Scarface, but shift it slightly to the world of Mexican drug cartels.

    Wait, The Poltergeist Remake Is A Children's Movie?

    http://www.cinemablend.com/new/Wait-Poltergeist-Remake-Children-Movie-69174.html

    If you've been under the impression that the upcoming Poltergeist movie is going to be one of the scariest films of 2015, I have some bad news for you. It turns out that this new film isn't necessarily that focused on being that frightening, and has been described by one of its stars as being more of a "kid's movie."

    That quote comes directly from Sam Rockwell, who recently discussed his work on the movie in an interview with Collider. Discussing the approach that the new version of Poltergeist is taking, the actor explained that there is a bit of a perspective change and that the resulting film is perhaps going to be a bit lighter than horror fans may be expecting. He explained, “The 10-year-old boy is really the protagonist this time. JoBeth Williams was the protagonist for the most part in the first one, and now the kid - it’s really through his point-of-view. So it’s more of a kids’ movie, so I don’t know if it’s gonna be like rated-R scary.”

    You know what I'd say to that? I'm a reasonable guy. But that would be some very unreasonable movie.
