Oh Death Race (review) ... what could have been a smart remake with just enough high octane carnage to balance it all out got the Paul W.S. Anderson treatment. We all know how those things turn out.
I don’t know what it is about discussing a Paul W.S. Anderson movie, but for some reason it made us all really ... gay. The homosexual under and overtones in this Dinner for Fiends made us all take a long, hard look at our own sexuality. We found it disturbing.

Our man Andrew Kasch sat down with the cast and crew (even our favorite director, Paul W.S. Anderson) of Death Race in order to learn what we can expect from remake and why it was being remade in the first place.
The more I see of Paul Anderson's remake of Death Race 2000, more depressed I get. While we're all for more blood and carnage, this version of DR has no identity of its own. Everything from the cars down to the characters just feel generic. But at least there will be blood...
As I'm sure you can tell from the amount of stuff we've been posting lately, we have covered the hell out of Comic-Con 08. The best part? We're still not even close to done.
Paul Bartel's Death Race 2000 is one of my favorite films from the '70s. It outranks even Star Wars on my list, and I'm a hardcore SW nerd. So, of course, my heart sank when I heard Paul W.S. Anderson was taking the name and bringing his "bigger means better, especially with Predator claws" attitude towards the film.
