Remake Remake Remake

Total Recall. Beauty and the Beast. Aladdin. The Lion King. Cinderella. A Star is Born. Charmed. Murphy Brown. Queer Eye for the Straight Guy. Roseanne. Twin Peaks. Will and Grace. Everything that was once good in film is now good again.

I got to thinking: If I’m going to harness the power of the remake for my own career, I need to tap into the origins of film itself. So I reached way back to the 90s — the 1890s — to create the below remake of the very first film: Arrival of a Train at La Ciotat by the Lumière Brothers.

Please enjoy my remake titled Arrival of a Train at Dupont Station.

Below, the original: Arrival of a Train at La Ciotat by the Lumière Brothers.

64. The Miller’s Tale

Written in the late 1300’s, the Miller’s Tale regales the story of Nicholas, a clerk intent on spending an entire night with his landlord’s young wife, who creates an elaborate scheme in which he must convince the landlord that a flood of biblical proportions is approaching, yet his perfect plan may be compromised by a rival clerk who is also desperate to do whatever it takes to bed this allusive beauty.
