$2,000 is needed to bring the message to the DNC: stop the unjust targeted killings, drone war, endless occupation and indefinite detention of the "war on terror." No matter where you are you can make this possible. Everyone who wants to see an end to the crimes this government is
and even if you're unable to help with the fund drive use this link to read their '12 steps to overcoming addiction to voting for the 'lesser' of 2 evils' which i found to be the best article i'd read online this week.
this week, i've bee noting remakes and i was asked what i thought of the now filming remake of 'robocop'? i haven't seen it!
but i'm interested with michael keaton in the cast.
i'm not bothered by a 'robocop' remake at all. other than nancy allen, i don't feel any 1 on screen did an exceptional job in that film.
i'm also not bothered by the remake of annie starring willow smith.
a) i think annie should be remade at least every 15 years if not sooner.
b) i ams ure we will be seeing that film (my daughter and i) when it comes out because she likes annie and she likes willow (and her 'whip my hair' song).
i also wouldn't be bothered if some 1 remade the benji movies.
reader peter wanted to know what film i would like to see remade?
'thoroughly modern millie' if they could stay true to it.
i actually love the film to this day. but i really did enjoy the 2002 musical and saw it four times. i think it was different enough to justify filming but apparently no studios did.
i would never want to see 'rosemary's baby' remade, however.
i feel they would destroy it.
part of the reason that film works is because it allows you to be drawn in. it does not rush to gore gore gore and cheap thrills.
i think cheap thrills are all a remake would go for.
did you see 'the astronaut's wife'? i really felt like that was an uncredited remake of 'rosemary's baby.'
my other big beef is how hollywood keeps f**king up by refusing to film broadway musicals these days or filming them as stage pieces.
i long for the day when we can have another solid musical transferred to the big screen, where people break into song and no 1's bothered by it.
let's close with c.i.'s 'Iraq snapshot:'
