Well it seems that Hollywood is running out of comics and 80's TV shows to plunder so now they're moving onto anime and the like. Will Smith & Steven Spielberg are planning to murder remake Oldboy. God help us. James Cameron still says that he'll eventually get 'round to remaking Battle Angel Alita. That at least should be worth a look see. Leonardo Dicaprio is pushing for a decent remake of Akira. Too early to make comment on that one but hopefully, as a fan himself, he'll try and keep it honest. He's also remaking Brave New World with Ridley Scott which  might be great, as long as Scott hasn't lost his touch. Gatchaman's up for a remake but as that's not got any Hollywood connection I'm actually holding out quite a bit of hope for that one. But, the big news, and the whole poibt of this post is that Bubble Gum Crisis is finally getting a LA remake. Not only that but it looks like the new BGC anime series may actually be getting off the ground... finally. W00t.

Boo!!   Cheesy

Why is there this insatiable need to destroy perfectly good movies by remaking them?  Has there ever been a remake that is better than the original?

But what is BGC without the awesome 80s tunes?  IT IS NOTHING!  KONNA-WA HURRICANE INDEED!!  I can't believe it, though.  I'm really amazed it's getting a LA treatment. There's no way it'll be good, but... I can't wait to see it. >.>

So who's excited for that Dragonball movieCheesy

Only in the "avid spectator of an impending, spectacular train wreck" fashion, it must be said.

OMG,OMG,OMG! Ridley Scott's making an adaption of one of the greatest sci-fi novels of all time; Joe Alderman's Forever War. Words cannot express just how happy this is making me right now.

Well, that's brain-breaking. (And an odd choice for a live-action Americanized adaptation, if you ask me...)

Argh, all of this butchering going on to turn a buck.
Aldous Huxley was a horrible sack of pus but Brave New World is essential reading.
I am sure it won't be as good as the 1984 version of 1984.

"Once engaged in battle, fight to win. That is the first and cardinal rule of battle. Suppress all human emotions and compassion. Kill whoever stands in your way, even if that be God or Buddha. Only then can one master the essence of the art.

You know... the Astro Boy thing doesn't bother me so much. It's still in an animated medium, and they have some interesting voice talents on the job. Color me curious, if not actually optimistic.
