Day #22,720-721

Walk 15,969-15,971: short walks Vancouver & Hong Kong

above: British Columbia
below: Siberia

Movie #2451: Stromboli   (1950, Robert Rossellini)
Movie #2452: Assault on Precinct 13 (2005, Jean-Francois Richet)
Movie #2453: Like Father Like Son (2013, Hirokazu Koreeda)

Three strinker on a plane. Stromboli is very earnest but I'm just not religious so I was not won over.
The remake of Assault On Precinct 13 was just plain crap. Why do people keep remaking good movies? The good ones don't need to be remade. Why not remake the bad ones and improve them?
Like Father Like Son was another earnest effort but it was like shooting fish in a barrel. Two babies were switched at birth and the error is not found until 6 years later. What are the parents to do? Obvious answer, right? Nope. These two couples go through all kinds of angst before finally deciding on the wrong answer.
