Way before I started blogging and working in Corporate America, I produced this little show.
Some of you in Charlotte might be surprised to know that I was one of the lead producers who actually helped create this show.
I bring this up because today's post reminds me of a topic that I would have pitched to the crew for a 'topic' of the night.
The topic being:
Movie and TV Remakes - YAY or NAY?
It seems to be a big trend right now.
The most recent being that they're remaking the 1987 classic, Dirty Dancing.
Yes, it's true, and I think it's ridiculous.
This is one of the best movies of all time and I can't believe they're going to taint the original with a remake.
There's also word that TNT is getting ready to remake/bring back, the 1980's hit show Dallas.
What's even crazier about this one?
Larry Hagman(JR), Linda Gray(Sue Ellen) and Patrick Duffy(Bobby), are all coming back and will appear in this new series.
And...I've noticed that there's already a movie trailer in circulation for the remake of the classic movie Footloose.
It doesn't look nearly as good as the original.
It's real simple.
Are you YAY or NAY on remakes?
You can probably figure out my stance by now.
