Might as well shit on Bowie's corpse now that you can, right?
Are they going to resurrect Bowie...
With the power of Voodoo?
do they do these things knowing that this shit pisses people off? starting to think they make these bombs as some sort of writeoff
grats on 10k
They cash in on young customers. And the type of person who assumes that newest version is best version.
haha figures it would be written by that no count SJW hack bitch who Gunn more or less fired of Guardians.
Ffs the guy died 2 weeks ago.
Hollywood. ....just give time to mourn him.
A war is coming, I've seen it in my dreams. Fires sweeping over the Earth, bodies in the streets, cities turned to dust... retaliation.
Hollywood is out there. It can't be bargained with. It can't be reasoned with. It doesn't feel pity, or remorse, or fear. And it absolutely will not stop, ever, until everything you love is dead.
Well Jim's daughter Lisa producing but you know it's going to be a soulless CG shit show as that's how hollywood does it these days. The Labyrinth reboot has been floating around for ages guess with Bowie's death giving that extra oomph they decided with the go ahead.
At least they officially waited until his corpse was cold. Fucks sake.
I liked both versions of Dune, but my favorite is still the directors cut of Lynch's version. It just feels like the more complete film, and has the best performances.
And yes I've read the books so don't start in with that shit. The first Dune reads like the fucking Bible which is what Hebert was influenced by.
When are we getting a Time Bandits reboot?
Just think if we're lucky enough to make it to 80 we will see Team America, The Matrix, shit like that.
But I will genuinely have my grand mal, go fuck yourself, piss and shit myself heart-attack when I see on my Mastubate4500! machine that Disney has acquired the rights to the Shawshank Redemption.
I think the fact that they have been remaking so many 80s classics is a testament more to the fact that the 80s were probably the greatest decade ever in film than the fact that Hollywood just wants to cash in.
Embrace the 80s!!!
or we be the demographic with cash at the right age to milk. shrug
There ya go. Bringing fucking logic into this thread. This is why we can't have nice things. Err. Well we can that's the problem so in our 30s and 40s our disposable income is the pvp assist priority for corporations. But they need to stop aiming at the feels. I'll buy anything else.
Ok I want to see what hot garbage they came up with. I'm riveted for some footage. I love watching train wrecks in action.
I located some articles which clarify this will technically be a sequel and not a pure reboot, which makes me think the overall theme will still be similar to the 1st movie. My guess is that the Goblin King in this one will end up being the Son of Jereth and they'll name drop him+Sarah (heck, maybe he'll be the son of both of them), but the general plot overall be similar to the 1st film.
Any chance Connelly will reprise her role?
If she did, I would be surprised if it were anything more than a cameo ;p
Yes. As Queen Astoas. She has a very strange scepter. And she's quite sad. Hopefully our hero will heal her heart.
no no no no no no no.
Dune is one that I could tolerate being redone. Lynch's is ok, he manages to get some of the feel of Dune in it, but it's really not very good. But really the political climate of it isn't going to be right for another 50 years. The Fremen were Al Queda.
I mean Dune (the original book) is basically an ISIS recruitment pamphlet. I really like it (the first one, even the second, then it went to shit) but it is what it is.
Hensons sold the Muppets to Disney. The new Muppet show isn't them.
AFAIK they really only held onto Farscape, Dark Crystal, and Labyrinth.
Oh, that's the problem with Lynch. He's so arty and vague that you can endlessly argue what "the point" is. He intentionally crafts his work that way for that effect. And I like that about Lynch, it's a real strength and it's very hard to accomplish and he did it beautifully and masterfully.
But Herbert's Dune (the book) had a very particular theme and point. That shit was pure and mainlined and not subtle, and if a reader isn't sure what the point was after reading Herbert's original they probably just need to read it again and slower. Lynch wasn't the best fit for that, it's a real mismatch. It's why Lynch had to do so much rewriting. Like I say, it's not that Lynch's Dune is terrible... it's not terrible. It's just not really Dune. But there are parts of it where he manages to capture Dune.
Which is another reason it was a mismatch. Lynch's personality is too strong for that movie. Dune needs a director who will be a vessel and let Herbert shine through. But that's a trick too, it couldn't be someone with a weak vision. It has to be someone with a strong vision and a mastery of the medium like Lynch has... but the ability to stand out of the way of the source material and not feel like they need to inject themselves into it. Dune is more than strong enough to stand on its own.
Lynch is an original artist. He's a one man band. A Dune remake needs the best cover band / studio musician you can find. But since we'll never get that... ehh... lynch's isn't the worst. It's just not that great. Would have been a better movie without the Dune references, if he'd just gone ahead and made his own Desert Religion Epic.
