Remakes a reel turn-off.

THE remake of that movie gem, Alfie, was pathetic, the remade Italian Job a travesty and now they're said to be remaking The Birds.

The Birds without Hitchcock? It makes as much sense as Harvey without lovely, bumbling Jimmy Stewart, but Spielberg is remaking that. Today's script writers must be disheartened by all this competition from beyond the grave.

Why can't we have a brand new picture, just for a change?
