brimfe, brile, remaster, homage, carbon copy

The film brims with homages to its source material: the cheeky little Slimer ghost, the theme tune (remastered by Missy Elliott and Fall Out Boy), the HQ. The problem with all these clever, witty references to the original is that the film does not really have an identity of its own

With so many references to the original, the film ends up feeling like a carbon copy
ECON.ST

General de Gaulle was the towering, at times isolated, symbol of a French refusal to accept defeat by Hitler's Germany; he was the architect of France's departure from colonial Algeria; and he was the creator of today's Fifth Republic, bringing institutional stability to France's traditionally febrile politics. He became French premier on June 1st 1958


It was acquired by Alamo Drafthouse Films in October 2013 and remastered in HD from the original negatives. The distributor released the film on Blu-ray, DVD, and digital copy in March 2014.[3]
