Since Australia has a movie industry the size of a fly's penis, we have to rely mostly on foreign movies, mainly from the U.S. and UK (since people find it oh-so-hard to read subtitles....).
One trend that I've noticed with movies coming out the U.S. is that there seems to be an awful lot of remakes lately.
Sure, you had the odd ones last century like The Thing, The Fly, King Kong (remade like 20 times), Frankenstein, etc, etc. However, now it seems that they don't even finish shooting a movie before they already start shooting the remake.
Seriously, Hollywood is really running out of ideas. I just heard they are making The Crow again... THE CROW!!! They've already made Conan too! And you know what? Now they've started remaking shit movies too!! Footloose... FUCKING FOOTLOOSE!!!!! WHY IN THE NAME OF ALL THAT IS SACRED WOULD YOU REMAKE FOOTLOOSE!!!! What's next?! Top Gun? Flashdance?! FUCKIN' BREAKIN' 2-ELECTRIC BOOGALOO WITH FUCKING VAN DAMME DRESSED IN LYCRA DOING SOME RETARD DANCE?!!
I reckon they should leave a movie at least 4-5 decades before they touch it again...
My theory is that some greedy capitalist studio executive fuck thinks to himself "Hey, you know what made us money a few years ago...?"
So instead of giving a new director or screenwriter a chance, they decide to remake the Police Academy series.
Money talks louder than thoughts.
P.S. I just found out that Hollywood is remaking one of my favourite French movies, "Tell No One", to be directed by Ben Affleck... Okay, nothing new here since Hollywood has been ripping off French (along from countless other countries) movies for over 50 years... BUT THIS IS ONE OF MY FAVOURITE MOVIES, YOU FUCKS!!! If Ben fucks this up like they fucked "Nikita" (fucking awesome in the French version, fucking awful in the U.S. version) I'm gonna wish him head cancer.
