Science from the Black Lagoon
One of the things I've always liked about Creature from the Black Lagoon is that it at least pretends to take science seriously (as opposed to using it as a substitute for magic). It's encouraging then that Gary Ross - who's writing and producing the remake - is not only also taking the science seriously, but is actually researching it in order to make his version even stronger.
I also like that he says he wants the tone to be serious and not campy. I've read one blogger who's fearful that they're taking all the fun out of it, but I disagree. Camp does not equal fun. You can take the premise seriously and still have a ball with it, which is something the original did wonderfully.
Ross' version isn't green-lit yet, but I'm hoping it will be. It sounds like he's on the right track.
