Straw Dogs 2011 Trailer

On top of my must see list for this year is the remake of the Sam Peckinpah film Straw Dogs. Throughout the years, the original film has benefited from it's so-called classic film status. Mostly due to the participation of Dustin Hoffman and of course the brilliant Sam Peckinpah. But many so-called fans have yet to actually SEE the film or at least don't recall much about it.

I argue that the original film is over-rated. 

I'm probably in the minority for this opinion. (Actually Roger Ebert and Vincent Canby gave the original film a negative review.) But if one watches the original movie again, they'll notice a lot of plot weaknesses and general, unnecessary, unfocused, strangeness in the film.

The remake of Straw Dogs is written and directed by Rod Lurie. Who wrote and directed two of my favorite films in the last decade. The Contender starring Joan Allen and Nothing But the Truth starring Kate Beckinsale. I have FULL confidence that Rod Lurie will do a masterful job of bringing out the TRUE themes in the story without the misogynistic overtones and bizarre, unnecessary artistic choices that a distracted Sam Peckinpah made with his original piece.

 Straw Dogs (2011) stars Kate Bosworth, James Marsden, and Alexander Skarsgard. It is scheduled for release September 16, 2011.
