Was it John Huston who grumped that Hollywood should stop remaking good movies and remake the bad ones? I couldn't find a quote. But in any case, without even seeing the new Taking of Pelham 123, I think the original 1974 version could be a poster child for that stricture. The Taking of Pelham One Two Three is an incredible movie. It's tight, suspenseful, action-packed and funny. Just, perfect.
