Now they are destroying Pete’s Dragon
October 16th, 2014 under Stupid Sequels/Remakes. [ Comments: none ]

When I was a little kid, Pete’s Dragon was my favorite movie. To this day whenever anyone mentions the film, it brings a smile to my face. That was until today because Variety is reporting that they are remaking it with Robert Redford. To make matters worse, Elliott the Dragon will be CGIed. Which means they probably will make him look more lifelike than the 1977 version of him. Which in turn will scare kids and not make it a classic like the original.
When will Disney realize that their biggest recent hits were not remakes, so they should stick to originals. To quote Frozen, when it comes to remakes “Let it go!”


Some bad times in Hollywood because they are making a Good Times movie
March 12th, 2013 under Stupid Sequels/Remakes. [ Comments: none ]

Hollywood just can’t come up with something original anymore because they are going back to the ’70s for their latest movie. According to Deadline Sony Pictures wants to resurrect their sitcom Good Times and make it into a feature film. The studio has hired Phil Johnston, who wrote Wreck-It-Ralph and Cedar Rapids, to write the screenplay. And I want to know what the hell they are thinking because this is not a Dy-no-mite idea. I really hope that J.J. paints the studio the picture where they see how dumb this is.
Please Norman Lear protect your legacy and stop this project before it gets off the ground. You know if you don’t they will wind up casting Will Smith and his whole gang to star as the Evans family. I just shed a tear because I can actually see them doing that, can’t you?
So to get me through this tough news, I am going to watch Good Times on AntennaTV because that is where it is at it’s best…on TV.


I don’t totally want to throw pig’s blood on the Carrie remake
October 16th, 2012 under Stupid Sequels/Remakes. [ Comments: none ]

The teaser trailer is out for the Carrie remake and it actually looks like it might do the original one justice. I just hope they don’t over CGI it because it was the ’70s special effects that made that flick so special!
So will I be there to see it when it comes out on March 15th? I’ll let you know when we see the full trailer.


Nigel Lythgoe wants to destroy Fame for TV
August 28th, 2012 under Stupid Sequels/Remakes. [ Comments: none ]

Nigel Lythgoe has been doing reality TV since he came to The States, and now he going to try doing scripted television by remaking Fame according to Playbill. The 1980 movie was brought back to the big screen in 2009 and it bombed, but yet MGM thinks the 1982 series has a better chance of making it under his lead. Something that has proven not to work not once but twice before. Back in 1997 Fame LA aired for one whole season and then in 2003 NBC tried a reality version of it that lasted just one summer.
What bothers me about Nigel at the helm is I bet the show would be cast with American Idol and So You Think You Can Dance rejects. Yes they can sing and dance, but can they act. A big part of scripted television is acting and I am not sure a lot those contestants can do it. Plus he has an ego as big as his teeth and I think he will ruin a perfectly good bad show by thinking he can do something better with it and he won’t be able to. His ideas for improving shows like Idol and SYTYCD have actually made me give them up instead of watching them more often. I used to love SYTYCD and now every time I see a commercial for it, I cringe.


This kills me, ALF is coming to the big screen!
August 9th, 2012 under Stupid Sequels/Remakes. [ Comments: 1 ]

Greetings earthlings, ALF is back and looks like he is coming to the big screen so hide your cats! According to The Hollywood Reporter the guy who brought The Smurfs to the big screen is working with the creators of ALF to do the same with the Alien Life Form. As happy I as I am about this news, I am sad that just like the little blue guys they want to make ALF computer animated. I hope they reconsider because what made the out-of-this-world sitcom so awesome was they way they brought him to life. He was so cute and huggable, and that is why everyone wanted a stuff animal of him. I don’t think we would get that same lovable feeling from a CGI version of Gordon Shumway.
