What sucks? MOVIE REMAKES!
What rules? NICK CAVE!
So, finding out that 18 foot tall Australian master of jangly post goth awesome is penning a new version of The Crow is somewhat confusing. On the one hand, do we really need another version of The Crow? Alright, it’s a decent enough movie, but then it did spawn the horrible habit of lanky, spotty, goth boys dressing in duct tape every halloween. And remakes are genetically predisposed to be horrible bags of toss.
But then, Nick Cave is writing it. And Nick Cave is known for not sucking at anything. The Proposition was a pretty cool movie. Both his books do that dirty southern gothic thing with the subtly that few can manage. And all his music projects have ruled.
The combination of Cave and Crow would also cause a goth critical mass that would suck anyone wearing an ankh into a very, very black hole. Which would be funny.
