I told my dog we’re going to put up the Christmas decorations before Thanksgiving – here's her reaction
You can tell you’ve done a good job decorating your Christmas tree when you have both Star Trek The Next Generation and Pride & Prejudice represented. (FYI: I’ve also got Captain America, Superman, some Star Wars stuff…)
As if further proof was needed that Hollywood had completely lost it’s way and it’s courage, they send us, right on cue, the trailer for Red Riding Hood, a pathetic Twilight copy in a period piece/known property’s disguise.
Want more proof? The Coen Brothers’ update on True Grit will be under the proverbial Christmas Tree this year. Sure, I like the Coen Brothers’ movies, and I’ll see anything with Jeff Bridges, but do we really need this movie? Didn’t we say all we needed to say with the first True Grit? Are they going to remake Rooster Cogburn, too? They may as well; it’s pretty much the same movie. Yet I’ll end up plunking down cash for this one, so my point is a bit lost.
I guess I’m hoping that Hollywood will step up and take some genuine risks instead of making Avatar 2. I’m not going to hold my breath.
