Wasn’t Psycho enough?

Comments

Have you heard of The Truth About Charlie? I saw a TV commercial for it yesterday, during “Smallville.” The scoop: it’s a movie, it’s directed by Jonathan Demme, stars Tim Robbins and Mark Wahlberg, and will be hitting a theater near you on 25 October. And it’s a remake of Charade. Gah.

First it was “we need to remake it because the original is in another language and no one will watch it.” Then it was “we need to remake it because the original is black and white and no one will watch it.” Then there’s George Lucas; no telling what’s going on in his head.

What is this, though? Can’t Hollywood leave well enough alone? I mean, Charade is one of the Perfect Movies — there’s just no way to improve on it. It’s like remaking Casablanca.

Oh wait, they already did that. I guess that particular crime made anything excusable.

    IMDB on "Barb Wire" :

    If you like this title, we also recommend...

    L.E.T.H.A.L. Ladies: Return to Savage Beach (1998)

    'nuff said.

  • This is a travesty of unheard of proportions. I wish we were local to each other so we could picket together.
