Fantasy Island is anything but a fantasy
November 11th, 2019 under Stupid Sequels/Remakes. [ Comments: 1 ]


Why does every remake have to be f*cked up psychological thriller these days? Case in point the remake of the positive Fantasy Island is now a dark thriller. Someone give the writers of movies today some antidepressants because this depressing sh!t needs to stop. Between Joker, The Invisible Man and this, Hollywood needs to lighten the f*ck up. Why can’t we have happy things? What is so wrong with that?

I thought my love life was sad, but seeing this on Valentine’s Day would be even sadder. Screw you Blumhouse.

Steve Guttenberg says a new Police Academy is in the works
September 3rd, 2018 under Stupid Sequels/Remakes. [ Comments: none ]


From 1984-1994, we got seven Police Academy movies. Since then, we have not gotten a single one. Sounds like that is about to change. When Steve Guttenberg was asked if he was making another Police Academy movie, he told them, “the next Police Academy is coming, no details yet, but it is in a gift bag being readied!”

I hope it happens because we need more goofy movies like this franchise that also spawned an animated and a live-action series. Sadly though, Bubba Smith, Andrew Rubin and David Graf will not be part of the new movie. They have all passed away since the last movie came out.

How do you remake House Party without Kid ‘n Play?
February 13th, 2018 under Stupid Sequels/Remakes. [ Comments: none ]


When we think of House Party, we think of Kid ‘n Play because it was their movie more than a movie own its own. Yet LeBron James is working on a remake with “an entirely new look”, and they are not in it. He told The Hollywood Reporter, “Everyone I grew up with loved House Party. To partner with this creative team to bring a new House Party to a new generation is unbelievable.” Unbelievable it is being done.

Doing House Party without Kid ‘n Play is like doing Good Burger without Keenan and Kel or Wayne’s World without Mike Meyers and Dana Carvey or The Three Amigos without Steve Martin, Martin Short and Chevy Chase. They should not be done. Right? So why do think this is a good idea?

Now I understand how Cleveland felt when King James left the first time. I say first time because you know he will leave them again.

Crocodile Dundee is back, sort of!
January 23rd, 2018 under Chris and Liam Hemsworth, Stupid Sequels/Remakes. [ Comments: none ]


Shhh, there is a new Crocodile Dundee movie coming out this summer, but no one really knows anything about it. All we know is that Dundee: The Son of a Legend Returns Home stars Danny McBride as Dundee’s American son and Chris Hemsworth as Wally Jr. The two are connecting because they are on a search to find Mick Dundee who has gone missing. Other than that, we know nothing. Things like if Paul Hogan and his ex-wife Linda Kozlowski will reprise the roles that made them huge stars in the ’80s. But then again why you do a Dundee film without them?

Is Diff’rent Strokes the next show to get a reboot?
January 2nd, 2018 under Gary Coleman, Revivals-Reboots, Stupid Sequels/Remakes, The Facts of Life. [ Comments: none ]


TV has given several shows from the ’90s reboots and revivals and now there could be one from the ’70s which might be coming back to our televisions. Todd Bridges Tweeted, “We maybe doing a new one [Diff’rent Stokes] i will be Willis Drummond I will be adopting two kids of a different color giving them the same opportunity that we where we were giving and showing the world no matter what color you are love conquers all.” I think that is something we need to be watching. The original normalized so much, I would love to see what a new version of it could do.

They obviously did something right the first time because it still airs in syndication on several channels after almost 40 years. Only a handful of shows can say that.

Diff’rent Strokes would also have to be a reboot because sadly Bridges and Charlotte Rae are the only surviving members from the original season. Who knows maybe if they ask nicely, they can get Janet Jackson to reprise her role as his girlfriend. What else is the youngest Jackson doing?
