Horror classics continue to suffer the indignity of needless remakes with The Last House on the Left being another victim. It's as if someone thought that the original would benefit from polishing when, in fact, it was its very roughness that made it so damn good. James Toback's fascination with Mike Tyson continues with the eponymous (and excellent) documentary Tyson. I still think that Toback is seeing things that aren't entirely there, though, with respect to Iron Mike. I can still remember seeing The Last Starfighter as a kid visiting my aunt in sleepy Lake Charles, Louisiana. The CGI animation looks fairly awful now, but I loved, loved, loved that movie way back when. And my childhood crush on Catherine Mary Stewart has barely faded with time.
