Beauty vs Beast: Wicca Wicca What

By the power of three, Jason from MNPP here today to make you see, make you see. If you can believe it Andrew Fleming's 1996 teen witch classic The Craft turned 19 years old two weeks ago, and it celebrated the last year of its teens with the news that greets so many other movies of a certain age -- it's remake time! Leigh Janiak, the female director behind last year's sufficiently creepy film Honeymoon, is gonna find four new girls to make light as a feather, stiff as a board, for a whole new generation. For a subset of 90s kids, this is like blaspheming the great Manon himself - inconceivable! Star Fairuza Balk (who's celebrating her birthday later this week - happy birthday, Fairuza!) weighed in with wise words on it; we have yet to hear from "natural witch" Robin Tunney. But what do you guys think? (Also: WHO WOULD YOU CAST?) And most importantly...

Whose team are you on?

PREVIOUSLY Last week's Kramer vs Kramer poll stayed incredibly close the entire seven days, and in the end it was only seven votes that handed Joanna (Meryl Streep) the win. Obviously y'all were as torn up over choosing as was that little boy's home life. Said Mike:

"I can't even say enough about these two marvelous performances. Both Oscars were well deserved. Still one of my ultimate favorite performances given by Meryl."

This movie highly HIGHLY contributed to my witchy Goth phase for a year. Oh man.

And I wore out the soundtrack CD.

Even though I was born in 93 and this is totally up my alley, I never saw this movie until very recently.

Team Nancy all the way. She was so crazy and intense in the best ways. Calling Sarah "vanilla" is generous.

This movie is fun trash, no better, but I like Robin Tunney better than she gets credit for. Fairuza clearly sucks all the air out of the room, but RT has some fun moments too. I love the last scene

All these deluded producers think they can just remake the magic of the 90s like it's nothing...

Meryl in that gif reminds me of Sansa in Game of Thrones. Meryl Stark. You all needed this comment, I know.

Team Sarah, because *SPOILER* she's the only one who keeps her powers at the end. But why are they messing with this? That cast is really '90s perfection. Skeet Ulrich! Christine Taylor!

If you've seen "Scream 4", you'll know that Neve Campbell hasn't aged in 20 years and therefore I am only okay with a remake being made if they cast her as Bonnie.
