Inspired by the news that the next “Die Hard” installment will be a prequel, procured here is a list of several other films that we also do not need. Enjoy, or well, try to. I mean, if we wanted to kill off the “Die Hard” Series the easiest way would be to let Bruce Willis continue making horrible horrible installments in this once great franchise.
Point Break Remake
In one of the most uninsipiring trailers in a long time “Point Break”, the remake, tries to channel all of the intense action sequences of the original with varying impromptu Keanu impersonations while hoping to gode a few “Fast & Furious” fans away from “Star Wars” this December. The only thing here that’s gonna break is Keanu Reeve’s heart.
Is no ground sacred? Are no legends beyond reproach? While Scarface might not be the pinnacle of filmmaking, how can they beat that Al Pacino performance? It’s what made the film! Sheesh, what’s next Ben Hur?
Ben Hur Remake
……………… I’m at a loss. This is literally Film Legend. Why?
This may shock you reader, but I have enjoyed some of the Transformers movies (1 was fun and 3 was entertaining) but after that last one. Wow. I mean, again, not the pinnacle of filmmaking ( AT ALLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL) but wow, that one hurt. A lot. Do we really need ’10 more years’ of Transformers?
This one is complete heresy. I’m amazed they’re moving forward with this production at all, especially so soon after Robin Williams untimely death. He was the heart of that movie and I can’t really think of any other actor that could appeal to so many, and earn so much laughter in the classiest of ways. Without Williams this is basically just Indiana Jones: The Board Game..movie.
The Newest Friday the 13th reboot/remake
This one is less heresy and blasphemy, but it is a personal grievance. I get that Slasher movies will be made until the end of time, especially when concerning Jason Voorhes, but, why in God’s name does it have to be a ‘found footage’ film? Oh its produced by Michael Bay? This will clearly be the definitive installment then………
