Speaking Of Movies

I just discovered that they are remaking The Manchurian Candidate. And, as opposed to my normal feeling towards remaking classics, I'm actually looking forward to this one...partly because the concept behind it is so much more real and possible now. And besides, Jon Voight is in it, and he rocks. The only downside I see at the moment is that they have Denzel Washington playing Ben Marco, and I don't think he can out-do Sinatra. Besides which, while Denzel does pretty good with angry action (Such as the recent 'Man On Fire'), he doesn't make me believe him with drama. Still, with Jonathan Demme directing, it has a lot of potential.
