COMMENT(s) DU JOUR
Amy Adams for Janis Joplin

"It's baffling to me that Amy Adams will potentially have as many nominations as Blanchett, Winslet, Maggie Smith, Vanessa Redgrave, Thelma Ritter, Deborah Kerr, Sissy Spacek, and Glenn Close. This is weird, right?" -Aaron

"What is happening with Nina Arianda's Janis film with Sean Durkin? It's still listed as "announced" on her IMDB. Are we to assumed that it is a lost cause?" -Ryan

Tim's Toons: Thoughts on animation's new reboot fever

Tim here. It’s been a weird week for fans of old animation. Nathaniel already said his piece (which is indistinguishable from mine) on the news that Warner is re-rebooting Scooby-Doo a mere 12 years after the first grisly first live-action/animated reboot of the ‘70s cartoon (the recent death of Casey Kasem, mere days before the announcement, now looms as some sort of grim karmic metaphor). And in the last couple of days, we’ve been hit with the first promotional artwork for an in-development Popeye feature at Sony Animation, and the news that DreamWorks has purchased the rights to Felix the Cat from the family of the 95-year-old slapstick animal’s creator.

Scooby Doo? Now They've Gone Too Far!

In what is unmistakably a sign of the apocalypse, Warner Bros is prepping a reboot of Scooby-Doo which was live action'ed in the long long ago era of 2002, the same year that spawned the original Spider-Man already two-years replaced to no one's advantage. We already know that Tomb Raider will happen sooner rather than later. What's next from the early Aughts? Red Dragon, which was itself a do-over of Manhunter (1986)? 8 Mile starring Macklemore? Stuart Little? Panic Room? Legally Blonde? Oceans 11 with an all new cast of younger cool? Charlies Angels? 

The most depressing thing about the do-over craze isn't that it exists exactly since the movies have always tried to repeat successes. But that it did not replace sequels. Several franchises from the nineties and early aughts are STILL producing sequels (Fast & Furious, The Bourne Identity, X-Men, Mission Impossible, etcetera). You can't have both, Hollywood. We'll have nothing new ever. Blargh!
