You all know how pissy I get about remakes....

In case you don't know...I do.

In fact, I kind of hate myself for loving the Ocean's 11 remake and sequels as much as I do and I wouldn't touch the New Hawaii 5-0 with a 50 foot long outrigger canoe.

And I especially hate remakes of The Three Musketeers. Which is extremely hypocritical because my beloved 1973 Richard Lester version was of course the umpteen millionth remake, but to me it's definitive. I wouldn't go near the 1993 version, even with Tim Curry as Cardinal Richelieu.

When we went to see Thor last week, one of the trailers was for the newest remake and the first words out of my mouth were "We don't need another remake of The Three Musketeers."

However, I just checked IMDB to see who exactly was going to be in the latest attempt...and JMFC...ZOMG!!! Christoph Waltz as Cardinal Richelieu!!!! I MIGHT have to go see this. (Bonus temptation for Matthew Macfadyen at Athos, although I could probably resist that. Christoph Waltz...not so much.)
