Halt! When there's nothing.

They've remade the movie Flashdance, I think. (I'm afraid to confirm this terrible notion.) Is nothing sacred? I watched that movie twelve times when I was ten years old. Or a hundred and twelve times. Something like that. (The stripper/ steel worker sleeping her way to the top was a wonderful role model for me.)

Why do they remake good movies? (Good in some sense. I mean, people liked Flashdance.)

They should remake bad movies, and make them good! Remaking good movies just sets us all up for a terrible disappointment. Remaking bad movies and making them good, well that's something worth doing! Remake the Day After Tomorrow, and have the weather be realistic, and nobody burning books when you could burn tables. Remake Even Cowgirls Get the Blues, and have it be something that incorporates the general feel of the book without sticking so terribly to the plot. Remake The Human Centipede and um... maybe it could be about a hip, new dance? Remake all of the magician movies where the magic is supposedly real as musicals. It makes no sense anyway, right? And what could be more magical than a musical? Remake every Vin Diesel movie with Benicio del Toro instead of Vin Diesel.

You see where I'm going with this. Make the world a better place! Remake bad movies and make them good!

  1. I think it's actually Footloose they've remade, which is just as bad. I'm really sick of all these remakes.
