    Just fashion pics; but you don't think they could pull it off?

    No.

    Moretz could pull off the role of the young working girl, and probably do a better job than Jody Foster did. But other than that, it would be a disaster! Neo instead of Raging Bull?? Oh Hell no! Not even close. Also, the remake would be disgustingly P.C.; and I can't imagine Scorsese reprising his role in the back of the taxi cab . . .

    As Hollywood found out with the remake of "Psycho," you don't remake old classics that were huge box-office successes.

    I think Keanu has more range than he's given credit for, but yeah, De Niro has an edge that Keanu doesn't. I'm not sure how PC they'd make it, but I'd say the bigger issue is that the movie wouldn't have the same impact in today's sociopathic culture, viewers would sympathize too much with Travis Bickle.

    And you think they didn't back when the original came out? Not about being sociopathic. Crime was so ridiculously rampant in NYC that a guy like Travis would easily be seen as a hero. That's why in the film; he was!

    But yeah, let's stay on-topic . . . Post another pic of a gifted Hollywood actress.

    That's true, I just don't think it would have quite the same shock value as it did 35+ years ago..

    Maybe he saw someone he didn't like . . . And decided to bit his tail instead of his tongue.

    Look at the paws on that thing! Amazing! I suppose you need those for walking on snow. I love the big cats like tigers, leopards, jaguars. Absolutely gorgeous animals.

    Now, seriously, you'd need to be a psycho to try and hurt that lady.

    Or just skilled. If that guy had a knife in his hand, he could easily close that distance and hit her before she'd have time to draw and and get one shot off.
