The Taking of Pelham 1 2 3

So there's a new remake of the amazing 1974 original due out this year with Denzel Washington and John Travolta. Looks terrible. The original is one of the most taut and tension-filled crime dramas ever made. Robert Shaw and Walther Matthau facing off? C'mon! Matthau's most bad ass role next to Coach Buttermaker in The Bad News Bears.

And the main titles are amazing. Even danceable! If you're out there, M, I love your waitress dance to this.
