At first I was kinda cool with all the live action remakes of Disney cartoons. I mean, Cinderella was ok, the Jungle Book was entertaining, Beauty and the Beast…. Meh.
Dumbo made the mistake of hiring Tim Burton as its director(he lost the edge he once had when he directed Ed Scissorhands, Batman and Ed Wood. He relies entirely too much on cg effects and sappy storytelling)
Aladin made the mistake of not casting Jack Black as the genie and of having the man who directed Snatch call the shots.
Now we get the Lion King, a supposed live action version but in reality it just swapped one animation style for another.
Lady and the Tramp….. No more Siamese cats to cause trouble.
The Little Mermaid…. Casting of a black girl…. Wait, I actually dont have an issue with this choice by Disney. I dont see any reason why so many online are complaining. Of course I also thought Ghostbusters with a female cast was smart…. Until I saw it. Great idea, poor execution.
Disney owns, like, 60 percent of what is in theaters these days. They own Star Wars, 20th century fox and so many other things not worth mentioning…. All Im saying is that these remakes are the 2019 equivalent of “catch it now before they go back in the vault. ”
I expect a little bit more imagination from the monopoly of film.
The Shining pt. 2…..wtf? The makers of this unexpected film either have nerves of steel and balls to match, are complete idiots who know nothing about a fanbase or are extremely confident in their filmaking style and will surprise people like me once this film is released.
The Kubrick version of the Shining is one of the most dissected and over anylyzed pieces of cinema ever made. Conspiracies abound with this film, from Kubrick dropping hints about the moon landing to it is a representation of the plight of the native American people.
To make a direct sequel so many years after is, honestly, looking for trouble.
On a side note, I have never been a fan of Kubrick. His films are to long, to drawnout and to over directed.
Fuck Childs Play….
The original still holds up today. Its story, far fetched, its execution, well done.
The reboot…. Its story, tired and dated(tech, a. I. And linking it all to the cloud, yawn) its execution, blah, its Chucky, big headed and not even remotely creepy.
Last thing, I will watch Aubrey Plaza in pretty much anything. It had that going for it.
