Remakes Remakes Everywhere

I read today that they are going to remake Blade Runner. I am sure this has been known for a while and I am not sure why I am just finding this out. I guess my saving grace is that Ridley Scott is directing it again supposedly. I personally don’t think that this needs to be re-made to be better. It was pretty damn good the first time around.

Now, there ARE some things that I think that should be re-made. Like the Bionic Watermelon from the mid-70s Captain & Tennille show. I was hoping to find a video or picture but I couldn’t. Hopefully some of you know what I am talkign about and I am not just insane. Well, that may be as well but …

Here are some shows/movies that I think they SHOULD remake. I will leave links to them so you can click and see what they were if you don’t know ( I am kind of in a hurry tonight so yeah I am lazy-ing it up a bit)



The Black Hole


TV Shows

B.J. And The Bear

Man From Atlantis

Gemini Man


My friend Kevin is trying to figure out what a small figure he found recently is. The image is below. If anyone out there (who doesn’t already read his blog) know what this is, let me know or hop over to his blog here and let him know.

Hopping down the bunny trail. Hippity Hop and all that.

Happy Easter tomorrow/today depending on when you read this. Just wanted to make sure I got on and wished everyone happy Easter. There, I said it twice even. I really like that Kapgar mentioned dead bunnies and posted a great video you can see here.

Pretty much that is all I wanted to say today. Been a very busy couple days with shopping for my niece’s birthday which also happens to be on the same day we are celebrating Easter that I am making a pie and jell-o mold for so … I do have some (hopefully) funny ideas for upcoming posts, AND I will be moving to self hosting very, very soon so (again hopefully) there will be some cool enhancements coming once I move. I will let anyone everyone know before hand in time to change any RSS or subscriptions.

I have posted about this before, so I won’t bore you all with another tirade on movie and TV remakes. I do however, feel that after the recent apparent mistake of “Clash of the Titans”, and my fear for the upcoming “A-Team”, I need to warn the public of future plans that Hollywood has to rape the past memories that everyone has of past movies and TV shows. So maybe it isn’t me warning but I found this list at Den Of Geek of no less that 75 remakes or reboots that is very informative. Read, enjoy and beware.

Until next time remember … “these eggs are *not* to be fried. Nor are they to be roasted, toasted, or waffled.”
