Another remake no one requested: SCENES FROM A MARRIAGE on HBO

Now we have Oscar Isaac and Jessica Chastain instead of Liv Ullman and Erland Josephson.

Have more hopes for Isaac than the frequently underwhelming Chastain, but why????

Speak for yourself OP. I love Jessica Chastain and think she is very talented. I’ll be watching!

You CAN'T remake this.

Liv Ullman was perfection.

With those two I'm definitely watching. Oscar Isaacs, the world's sexiest Hispanic Jew!

Aren't there enough Ingmar Bergman films out there already?

HBO had been on a great roll with Mare of Easttown and White Lotus. This one doesn't excite me at all.

No. Fucking. Excuse.

It looks good and she (Chastain) in it.

So unnecessary.

I hate beards that thick. Yuck. Disgusting. Give me skin.

I hope it's good. Like them both.

Why can’t they remake Scenes from a Mall instead?

by Anonymousreply 12August 19, 2021 1:21 AM

You don’t remake Bergman. You just don’t. Liz Taylor learned that the hard way.

They look too much like Miranda and Steve.

No one asked for this.

And, BTW, does troll 5886 even realize he’s blocked? I’ve seen other blocked trolls continuing to post — are they bots or don’t they read the threads in which they post?

Looks tired. Jessica is so boring in every role.

Does Oscar take his clothes off?

by Anonymousreply 18September 15, 2021 1:25 AM

As soon as Oscar Isaac declared his pronouns during the first few sentences of the pilot, it immediately ticked me off and lost interest fast.

I made the mistake of trying to watch this piece of shit shortly after watching the original. As soon as the interviewer asks what the couple’s pronouns are, I had to turn it off.

This time the [italic]interracial[/italic] version.

The decision to begin the show with Jessica Chastain arrive on set as herself and proceed to prepare for the first scene was counter-productive. One thing that made the original so magical is that the viewer has to remind themselves they’re watching actors. All I could think during what little I could bear to watch is, “Oh look. Jessica Chastain and Oscar Isaac. Acting.”

by Anonymousreply 22September 15, 2021 1:22 PM

I will only watch this because I heard that Oscar is going to present his Jewish dong here.

I haven’t seen the original, but I really liked the first episode. Corey Stoll’s character was a complete douche but still a hunk, and Oscar Isaac was sweet and cuddly. The scene in the doctor’s office was uncomfortable beyond belief and thus realistic if Chastain’s character is really as emotionally tangled up as she seems. After the interview with the student, I got the sense she hadn’t ever been honest with her husband…

I suspect the creative team behind this is counting on the vast majority of the audience not having seen the original.

If you haven't seen the original and want to, be sure to watch the full 6-hour mini-series version rather than the shorter theatrical film.

I like Isaac, but Chastain has never done much for me except in A Most Violent Year (with Isaac) where she played a Lady Macbeth-ish character. I'll never forget how awful she was onstage in The Heiress.
