Alright…I should consider this part III of “The Changing Tide of Movie Viewing”, but this is going to be short. America is tiring of these “reboots” of classics…To touch some films in a remake is as horrid as stepping on a grave. Seriously! When writers do not stick with original thoughts of the writers who penned the works, they bastardize the entire work. I can already see what’s coming with this:
To me this would be like casting Ted Nugent in a “Jesus Christ Superstar” remake…Sorry but this is not a seasoned actress. This is a country singer. This is not going to fare well, but neither did the NBC remake of “The Munsters” or the “Dark Shadows” reboot that came out in theaters this year. For those who wish to debate the latter–it did NOT do well in the US. In this country, star power doesn’t always = movie ticket sales.
Some things are better left UN-made and this is going to be one of those projects…Do these studios get write-offs for the trash they put out or what?! The only way this trend will stop is to quit giving the kids money to go to the theaters and either boycott sponsors, or simply refuse to watch…Maybe eventually they will get the message. The only halfway decent shows on TV now are Hawaii 5-0 and Law and order SVU. And let’s not forget PBS!
And that’s the truth! *Gives the Edith Ann Raspberry Here!*
