It's that time again, the 90th Academy Awards ceremony will soon be upon us and Invasion of the Remake will be right there hovering over the ceremonies. With one of the most interesting nominations lists to hit the Oscars in years, we had to have our own conversations, predictions, and drinking rules. This year the winner of our Oscar pool will be rewarded with the hosting duties of the podcast for a month. Will Jason keep the command chair or will Sam or Trish take the honor of host away from him? We also have our drinking rules for viewing this year's Oscar ceremony and a few other surprises. With films like Lady Bird, The Shape of Water, and Get Out all up for best picture this year could be one of the most exciting Academy Awards ever!

Rollerball (1975) is a deadly sport on rollerskates. Competitors take to the track trying to score, spilling blood to entertain the masses. But one player Jonathan E. rises above the rest as the sport's most popular player. A conspiracy begins to take Jonathan off the track one way, or another. Norman Jewison brings the William Harrison story to the big screen starring James Caan, John Houseman, and Maud Adams. This sci-fi bloodsport has become a cult hit spawning a disastrous 2002 remake by Die Hard director John McTiernan starring Chris Klein, Jean Reno, LL Cool J, and Rebecca Romijn. Could this be one of the worst remakes ever? Join Invasion of the Remake as we explore the dark world of Rollerball!

Yor, hunter of dinosaurs, savior to many, is on a quest to find out his own history and lost origins. Along the way he picks up a small group to aid in his search for his people. Two thirds Conan, and one third Star Wars, Yor: Hunter From the Future (1983) is a strange anomaly of Italian cinema. A spaghetti sci-fi, fantasy, if you will. Yor stars Reb Brown of 70's Captain America fame, Corinne Clery who would later be a Bond girl in Moonraker, John Steiner, Carole Andre, Luciano Pigozzi, and Ayshe Gul. The world of Yor is complete insanity and thus perfect for an Invasion style remake! Don't you dare miss it!

In a galaxy far, far, away...
 
The intrepid hosts of Invasion of the Remake became aware of a disturbance in the Force Awakens. Something familiar, something remakey. In a desperate to gambit to bring balance back into the Force they compared Star Wars: Episode IV - A New Hope to Star Wars: Episode VII - The Force Awakens. In doing so they would stumble onto the plot of Star Wars: Rogue One over a year before the film would hit theatres.
 
Two years later they would do so again with a dreaded Star Destroyers in pursuit. Star Wars: Episode V - The Empire Strikes Back (1980) stands as one of the finest films of the Star Wars franchise. Will there be striking similarities or will Star Wars: Episode VIII - The Last Jedi stand alone? What new Star Wars Universe stories will the Invaders stumble upon? Join Invasion of the Remake as they once again save the galaxy with a brand new Force fueled podcast.

Would you sell your soul to the Devil for seven wishes to win the hand of the woman you love? That's premise of the romantic comedy Bedazzled. The original (1963) was written by and starred Peter Cook and Dudley Moore alongside Eleanor Bron, and Raquel Welch. Bedazzled's unique blend of big screen storytelling and small screen sketch comedy was directed by Stanley Donen (Blame It On Rio, Singing in the Rain). Writer/Director Harold Ramos would bring the comedy back to screens in a 2000 remake starring Brendan Fraser, Elizabeth Hurley, Francis O'Connor, and Orlando Jones. Will the Devil get his/her due or will Stanley/Elliot get to keep his soul? Join Invasion of the Remake as we go to Hell and get Bedazzled!

Whether it is for vengeance or to cover up illegal activities, it is going to be a long night for the closing Precinct 13 that none may survive. Before Halloween, before the Fog, before Escape from New York, before The Thing, John Carpenter made the low budget, action, thriller Assault On Precinct 13 (1976). A simple idea that was inspired by Romero's Night of the Living Dead as a faceless gang lays siege to a closing precinct. In 2005 based on a screenplay by James (The Purge) DeMonaco, Jean-Francois Richet would remake Carpenter's classic with an all-star cast including Ethan Hawke, Laurence Fishburne, Gabriel Byrne, Maria Bello, Drea de Matteo, John Leguizamo, Brian Dennehy, and rapper Ja Rule. This week Invasion of the Remake gets inside Precinct 13 to compare, contrast, and ultimately see which film will survive the Assualt on Precinct 13.

It's New Years Eve 1999. People's memories and experiences are being bought, sold, and traded as a commodity, almost like a a euphoric drug. A terrible murder has taken place that can rock the world, and its terrible secrets are in play. Bodies are mounting to keep this secret buried and Lenny Nero is at the center of it.

Welcome to the first Invasion of the Remake of 2018! Happy New Year! To celebrate the New Year we look at Kathryn Bigelow's Strange Days (1995) which takes place on the eve of the new millennium where there is social unrest and uncertainty in the future. It was a bomb at the box office but a hidden gem that must be shared and discussed. It starred Ralph Fiennes, Angela Bassett, Juliette Lewis, Tom Sizemore, Michael Wincott, Vincent D'Onofrio, and William Fichtner. Join us as we discuss this underappreciated neo-noir sci-fi classic and rethink it with a new cast and new ideas. Want to know what a remake might look like? This is the show for you!
