Essential Seven Franchise Remakes / Reboots That Worked

Early this week the trailer for the Footloose remake hit the web. The question has to be asked does a remake of a successful film from the ’80s need to be made? Obviously the answer is no. It shows the lack of creativity with Hollywood. That doesn’t mean that remakes / reboots are bad. I think some franchise’s need a good reboot in the ass.

Essential Seven Reasons to Hate the Twilight Saga!

Twilight

The Twilight phenomenon drives me insane! I never read the books, but everything I hear is that they are really poorly written. (I wonder if they are worse than my weekly writings here?) For weeks friends’ wives have done nothing but talk about how they are excited for the new film. The countless media saturation is off the chart. I can’t take it anymore.

Vampire lore has been around for centuries, but by the 20th century and into the new millenium, vampires have become such a part of popular culture that they have touched everyone at some point in their lives.
