Das Re-Boot


#1

Eight-part series is coming later this year.

Ten-to-one it won’t have the weird, 80ish soundtrack of the original movie. Don’t get me wrong; it’s really memorable in its own way, but also very 80s.


#2

Huh…well, the movie was almost as long as a miniseries, so why not?


#3

The original was a miniseries, at least in Germany. You can get a dvd of it on Amazon.


#4

Yeah, I’ve only seen the Director’s Cut, which is near 4 hours on its own. I know there’s an even longer version that’s only on DVD apparently:


#5

They had me at “Guten Tag”.


#6

Will it be available in the States though? Guess Netflix eventually? Love the movie, not sure I want them to try to recreate it, but I’ll give it a watch.


#7

Das Boot is sooo good. Even my girlfriend ‘enjoyed’ it and she usually avoids war films.

Yeah, I feel the same.


#8

“Gute Männer… Alles was man braucht, sind gute Männer.”.


#9

Just that ONE SCENE makes the movie. The one where they’ve been spotted and they go really deep to avoid the depth charges.


#10

Is the original available to stream anywhere? (I’m guessing not in the US, unless it’s in the Criterion Collection or something.)

[edit]

Amazon Prime has it.

[edit]

Amazon also recommends Fifty Shades: 3-Movie Collection when viewing this item.

Fünfzig Meter: Freed


#12

Geezzz. Amazohno.


#13

Well, I did read that the original theme tune is coming back. Not sure about the rest of the soundtrack.


#14

Hmmm, conflicted on this. On the one hand super hi-res video and hi-fidelity audio will be wonderful. On the other hand, how can they possibly hope to match the performances of the original?


#15

It does not matter how good these remakes are. WE MUST HAVE REBOOT OF EVERYTHING!!


#16

Can I just say too that the name of this thread is brilliant.


#17

First photos. Wow, there are some unexpected names in this.


#18

Every one of those boys is just too pretty.

The only pretty boy from the first one was the Hitler-youth I W.O.


#19

It’s starting to look like “One Tree Hill” Kriegsmarine.
