You know what really grinds my gears? It is the fact that Hollywood cannot seem to come up with any new movie ideas.
I mean, I am sick and tired of seeing cheap remakes, monotonous part 2’s and 3’s and 4’s, and now it seems that they have crossed the line. Every movie that we have originally grown to love is now about to be ruined.
Yes, I did the research and it is bad. We are about to see years of sequels and prequels coming our way. So unless I start to find an interest in watching Tyler Perry movies where “Madea Goes to the Moon” or “Madea Meets the Kool-Aid Guy.” It looks like I am boycotting movies.
If the best thing they can come up with in recent years is a love film, with Mark Wahlberg and the Rock’s illegitimate son Channing Tatum, it seems then that we are going to be in for a long movie depression.
So, first we are going to have the prequel to the long “Lord of the Rings” series called “The Hobbit.”
Let me just say that sounds like a steaming pile of Sméagol. Why must we “George Lucas” the crap out of movies and try to “prequelize” them. Yes, I made that word up.
I hated what they did to “Star Wars,” but hey, what closet geek did not hate that?
Also, we had to listen to that new “Footloose” movie. I am sorry but, Kevin Bacon did the original, and that is where it should have been left. We get the hint; no dancing. Now we have another Ferris Bueller movie coming out, and we also have another “Major League” movie in the works.
First let me say that Matthew Broderick is too old to be sneaking out of anywhere or faking sick.
He might break a hip performing “Danke Shoen” again.
Can we just leave the classics alone? I do not want to see Charlie Sheen try to pitch as “Wild Thing” Rick Vaughn.
I think we are over the whole Charlie Sheen “winning” movement. Then we have another “Ghostbusters 3” movie. I am sorry but let me just mention that Bill Murray is against this movie. So, why should we even bother?
All these guys are in their 50s and 60s. So who wants to watch old men fight ghosts? This is just another disaster waiting to happen. Next thing you know, we are going to redo “The Wizard of Oz” where Dorothy decides to settle down with the Scarecrow and they have little baby mutant children that have to fight a new Wicked Witch.
I forgot they are going to ruin the movie.
Say hello to “Oz, The Great and Powerful” where we get a look inside the wizard’s life.
Did America forget that this was all a dream of Dorothy’s? He is not real, so how could we begin to make up a storyline for a dream character?
Here we are in 2012 and we will soon be presented with another “Friday” movie, “Hangover 3,” and “Fast and Furious 6.” Who really needs six of those?
We might see another Beetlejuice which was made 20 plus years ago, and quite possibly a “Terminator 5.”
Is there any end to this madness?
No, because Hollywood loves a franchise, and it absolutely will not stop, ever, until it is dead.
If that is the case, I think the movie “2012” was a metaphor for what Hollywood is about to become; a total disaster.
