Because the first time was supposed to be with John Belushi and Dan Ackroyd. They talk to Gene Shalit about it in an old interview before Belushi died.

Belushi would still be making great films if he were alive, unlike Ackrod (not a typo).


I would argue that I don't think the movie would have been funny with Belushi. The story was crap. Belushi and Aykroyd didn't guarantee good stuff. I thought Neighbors was a disaster. I'll leave it there.

Okay, this is definitely what Disney was going to do with "White Star"-

Alright. I know that there are those of you out there who are already upset that Disney would even think of remaking "Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs." Much less turning this animated masterpiece into a martial arts movie. But you have to understand that this isn't the first time that the Mouse has actually thought about remaking "Snow White."

How many of you remember back to 1979, as Walt Disney Productions was getting ready to release "The Black Hole" ? More importantly, when then-studio head Ron Miller -- as he was meeting with members of the press -- began talking up the studio's next sci-fi-based project. Which (depending on when you talked with Ron) was either known as "Snow Star," "White Star" or "Star White."

Anywho ... The film's storyline dealt with this Princess Leia-like royal who was fleeing from an evil sorceress who's out to destroy the princess's home world. When the Leia-lookalike's spaceship suddenly developed engine problems in deep space, the princess sought shelter in this supposedly abandoned space station.

Only (surprise, surprise) this space station isn't actually abandoned. When the original colonists left eons ago, they left behind seven little droids to maintain the facility. And it's these robots who now become the princess's protectors and keep her safe from that evil space sorceress.

So you tell me, folks: What sounds worse? "Snow and the Seven" with its Shaolin monks or "Snow Star" / "White Star" / "Star White" / Whatever. Which was basically "Snow White and the Seven Droids."


I dunno, it just would've been one in a sea of movies that tried to cash in on "Star Wars".

In the right hands, The Black Hole could have amounted to something.
As it was, it was just a turgid lump of poo.
Directed without style or imagination.
Limp.
It's ripe for a do over......

Actually, when I saw that it was the period movie with Colin Firth, Ben Kingsley, and Aishwarya Rai I remembered that I had seen the trailer before on either Apple's site or movie-list.com. Either way, I do remember being interested in the film. I love Rai from the few Bollywood movies that I've seen her in and Colin Firth is a solid actor. Plus Kingsley has really turned it on lately in most of his movies.

It's on my list of films to see in the theater, for now..... I'll keep my eye out for anything else on it

Shaolin Snow White
From arthouse to grindhouse: Disney has revealed plans for a live action version of Snow White, with a heavy emphasis on, er, kung fu. Called Snow And The Seven, the film will follow a British girl raised in 19th century Hong Kong, who learns her chopsockey skills from seven Shaolin monks. Presumably with names like Smashy, Punchy, Kicky and Ouchy. Francis Lawrence (Constantine) is directing, according to Variety.

Could this be the first in a franchise of kung fu cartoon remakes? Why not? We'd like to see The Little Mermaid whacking off heads with a roundhouse tail flip.


Woo-ping Yuen was said to be directing this a year or so ago. It's still listed on his IMDB page. Now it's going to be directed by Francis Lawrence (Constantine, I Am Legend).

On the heels of the Monopoly announcement, I have good news and bad news.

Bad news first-Even though I have the feeling this will be one of the worst films of the year (Though it's really accurate), Avi Arad has given the go-ahead to another "Bratz" movie for release next year. Pervert.

The Good News-A Barbie movie is being planned. I really hope it's not the one Demi Moore wanted to make where it's a girl having adventures with Barbie, but something more along the lines of all the CG features that have been released.

Coogan On The Piste
Alan Partridge is strapping on his skis for a biography of Eddie "The Eagle" Edwards. Yes, in a casting coup so perfect that it makes your head spin, Steve Coogan will play the hapless British ski jumper, who caused a sensation at the 1988 Winter Olympics by, er, completely failing to win anything.

Declan Lowney is directing the movie, which will start shooting next year after a lengthy stay in development hell. "His story is a very British story, and he is a very British kind of hero", Coogan told Variety. "When I read the story, I found it funny but, more surprisingly, quite moving. Quirky, dysfunctional, slightly nerdy, but his balls must be made of titanium". Well, that would certainly have been helpful. He did tend to land on them.

Oliver Stone to direct harrowing and bloody Vietnam movie once more - starring Bruce Willis


Willis will play Army Gen. William R. Peers, who supervised the investigation into the massacre by U.S. soldiers of as many as 500 My Lai villagers, most of them unarmed women, children and elderly.

Tatum will play Hugh Thompson, a helicopter pilot who, upon realizing what was happening below, put a stop to the killing by placing his craft between gunmen and the few villagers who were left, and telling his two shipmates to fire on the soldiers if they shot any more people. They airlifted the survivors and reported the carnage to superiors.

Extra odd line of info here

Maybe here too.


I'm well up for this. Stone's Nam movies have always had a unique special interest for me, and Bruce seems to have reached a level where he's actually doing damn fine work for himself and is getting the appropriate dramatic response from his audience in his last few years. So this I'm bang up for. Sounds horrendous subject matter though. Hope he'll do justice to it.

Does seem a bit harsh for a movie to be based around. For some reason hearing the story reminds me of Rules of Engagement. One of those hardly known stories from that war. I've never heard of that event before.

Read the new "Entertainment Weekly", and Rainn Wilson (aka Dwight K. Schrute) is going to be in a film called "Renaissance Men" about two community theater geeks that join the ren faire.

Erm I dunno. VERY cutesy trailer. I'd give it a look on TV...maybe.

Is it just me or has Ratatouille ben having weird, uncatalogued cultural influences popping up lately? I get a "Ratatouille" vibe from this trailer, in an oblique way. Maybe its the music choices coupled with the respect for food prep. Coincidence?

not coincidence, but then, i also don't think "Ratatouille" is responsible for the renewal of interest in respecting food prep, rather it is part of the "movement", if you will. not only that, i think the whole food prep thing is part of a greater phenomena of people looking for more in life than just the 9 to 5 rat race and scrambling to buy "stuff". slowing down to cook, really cook, is part of that, imo.

I agree. The rise in popularity of the Food Network has had a lot to do with this, I think.

And the food shows on the Travel Channel, like Anthony Bourdain's show and Andrew Zimmern's show, and Top Chef on Bravo ...

Ratatouille fits right into all this.

Not sure whether this is has been posted but it appears Brad Pitt is to star in Darren Aronfsky's new movie The Fighter along side Mark Wahlberg - at least according to several movie websites I've come across. In which case, it seems they've buried the hatchet after The Fountain...though thankfully not in each other's head.
Could be an interesting movie, though I'm still not convinced of the talent of Wahlberg as an actor, to be honest.

Interesting article regarding recent Village Voice culling of it's film crit staff - J Hoberman fans take note - he's still there. Why do you care? Because you love to read about independent cinema in the US, and this may represent a loss in terms of newspaper coverage - they ditched their music critic recently too.

Pitt and Aranofsky never were enemies because of The Fountain. Amazingly, they are really good friends despite what happened. If I'm not mistaken, Aranofsky actually consulted with Pitt on some ideas for the new take on the story. Amazing that someone can go into such an incredible funk both creatively and physically because of one person, and yet still remain friends. Hey, good for him, he's a better man than I.

Producer of "H@rry Potter" series plans to bring yet another British icon to the big screen-

Paddington Bear

I loved that crazy stop-motion series from the late '70s/early '80s, and was disappointed that it was a fully animated series in the '90s...but it should be good to see my favorite marmalade loving bear get into trouble again. :)

Unfortunately, all I could find of the original was a recent advert for Marmite which keeps the stop-motion style.

Personally, I'm an atheist in the voting booth and a theist in the movie theatre. I separate the morality of religion with the spirituality and solace of it. There is something boring about atheism.

Remake of "Terror Train"...so not a remake. It's just taken the concept of a killer on a train and put it someplace different. It's a murderer on a train in Europe where a group of American athletes are getting killed. Fortunately, it's going to be called "Train".

Dammit, I wanted to see Criss Angel in the David Copperfield role...

EDIT-Also, in WTF news, Will Kemp (Velkan Valerious) in the sequel to "Step Up"?! Oh God, this is worse than "Mindhunters"... Why oh why can't they cast him for that "Manhunt" movie, or just release "William and Miguel" in the US? Or possibly have him join the broadway...erm....'mounting' of "Equus"?

Purefoy prefers to act in the past, I assume?

Okay, after hearing this and the fact that "The Restaurant at the End of the Universe" won't be made, I'm getting really ticked off at Hollywood.

And the idiot portion of America.
