OH DEAR GOD…. January 14, 2009

Can Hollywood not come up with any original ideas anymore??  From the astoundingly bad idea files………according to EW.com, Will Smith’s production company is remaking……wait for it……The Karate Kid.  No lie.  His son Jaden, who you last saw in another remake The Day The Earth Stood Still, will take the role of Daniel.  I’m not kidding.   Mr. Miyagi will now be played by Jackie Chan.  Seriously…I can’t make this shit up.  It’s rumored that Jaden’s mother, Jada Pinkett Smith will portray…can you guess??……Daniel’s mother!   And it will be filmed entirely in China. 

This is yet another waste of money.  Pretty soon all of the movies from my childhood will be remade.  Tom Cruise and Nicole Kidman’s daughter Bella will reprise all of  Molly Ringwald’s roles, thus remaking the entire library of John Hughes movies.  Joan Cusack’s son will reprise the role of Lloyd Dobler, following in the footsteps of his uncle.  However, this time Lloyd will be an avid gamer, who woos his girlfriend, portrayed by Scout Willis, by standing on the roof of his Prius and blaring a Justin Timberlake ballad from his iPod.

Oh dear god…….

Remakes…Hmmm. It does sound like folks have lost some imagination. %^| As long as the remake is a one time deal, I may be good; but we’ll see what happens these next couple of years.

If someone even thinks about remaking Ferris Bueller’s Day Off, they will die!

ACCK!!! Don’t even say that outloud! Then we’d really need to start a ‘Save Ferris’ campaign!!!

Alison, I don’t know how your taste in movies run, but check out “Cherish.” It has Robin Tunney and Tim Blake Nelson. It may be in either comedy or drama. It’s a dark comedy, and not typical Hollywood.
