I don't really mind who's taller than who, even though it seems to be a factor in the casting, such as when they choosed Kirzinger as Jason over Hodder, but I don't like how they changed Michael from what he was supposed to be. If he had been a hulking brute in the original movies, well, that all fine, but the cool thing about Mike was that he seemed to have about the same built as me (6'2", 165-170 pounds), yet he was freakishly strong and it added a superhuman quality to the character. In the remake, well, he was just a big wrestler. No shit he's strong.
To be perfectly honest, I haven't seen the remake's sequel. Someone helped me to cowrite the strips that revolved around it. I am however going to subject myself to the Freddy remake. I've been hyping strips about this one quite a bit.
