When possible, I like to prepare for movies by reading or watching the source material because they can provide a better understanding of their adaptation or remake. On Monday night, I watched Ken Scott’s Starbuck on Netflix Instant. It was pleasant and undemanding. The following night, I went to go see the remake, Delivery Man (also directed by Scott), and discovered I had seen almost the exact same movie in less than 24 hours. The original didn’t warrant a second viewing, and yet there I was, watching it again except this time it was in English and had actors I’d seen in other movies. It was one of the most pointless moviegoing experiences I’ve ever had.
