So, I'm sitting here watching Footloose with BabyD.
Yes, Footloose, the 1984 original.
It was part of a negotiated deal as an incentive to finish cleaning her room (including closet) in a timely manner.
I really didn't think she'd do it.
So, I lose.
No matter how fond the memories of great 80s movies... I never liked Footloose.Actually, it wasn't the movie so much as it was the sound track... still can't stand it.
And, guess what?
Some genius in Hollywood thinks it's a good idea to remake it.
Can someone explain this to me?
Are there no good ideas left in the movie capital of the world???
Apparently not, if they have to dig-up the smurfs again. (Didn't like them, either.)
Shall I go on?
Dukes of Hazard (that's 2 hours of my life I'll never get back)
The Karate Kid
The Nutty Professor
The Parent Trap
The Shaggy Dog
Herbie the Love Bug
(Can you tell I'm particularly annoyed by the classic Disney pics of my youth?)
I could go on...
Can't they well enough alone?
Now I've heard that remakes are in the works for The Birds (you're going to improve on Hitchcock???) and Gilligan's Island. Really?
The worst part is: They never get any better. I have full confidence that the new version of Footloose is going to be trashier than ever.
All I can say is: This is why I rarely go to the movies. And I don't have much hope for the future...
