    Long Live the (Old) New Flesh: Why We Don't Need a 'Videodrome' Remake

    A new version of "Videodrome" could be fantastic. But whether it's terrible or terrific, it is already totally unnecessary.

    The Only Live-Action Remake of "Lady and the Tramp" We'll Ever Need

    While Disney's animated classics continue to get live action remakes, whether of the studio's own doing or via some other production company digging into the same fairytale source materials, it's nice to see that "Lady and the Tramp" will probably be left alone. At least in fea...

    Pingu the Penguin Stars in a Claymation Remake of "The Thing"

    Disappointed with that recent prequel/remake of John Carpenter's "The Thing"? To make up for it, here's a short redo of the 1982 version as reenacted by the claymation character Pingu. Not only does it make perfect sense for penguins to remake a sci-fi/horror film set in Antarctica...

    Reboot This: "Alfred Hitchcock and The Three Investigators"

    It's typically annoying when a film franchise is immediately rebooted, but it's doubtful any of you have even seen either 2007's "The Three Investigators and the Secret of Skeleton Island" or the 2009 sequel, "The Three Investigators and the Secret of Terror Castle.&q...

    10 Film Franchises That Need a Christmas Movie

    Now that Halloween is over, we can start thinking about Christmas. The dominant holiday of only two-sevenths of the world's population (not counting the non-religious hangers on) is rearing its head early this year thanks to Friday's release of "A Very Harold & Kumar 3D Christmas." This third installment of the stoner comedy franchise will hopefully be another riotous satire full of political incorrectness, and the series' typical play with race, creed, sexuality and politics ought to fit perfectly with the many themes, positive and negative, associated with the day when we commercially exploit celebrate the bir...

    "Rise of the Planet of the Apes" - Bay Area Ape Population is Small But They'll Still Outlast Humans

    I don't really think it's much of a spoiler that the apes in "Rise of the Planet of the Apes" get loose and cause a riot on the Golden Gate Bridge. Even if this climax hadn't been shown in the trailers, it is called "Rise of the Planet of the Apes." Also, we're way beyond spoiling the ending of a plot point that originally occurred back in 1968, right? Anyway, there is a point in the film when evolved chimpanzee Caesar gives all his fellow imprisoned simians a cookie (yeah, even Rocket) and leads them to freedom by making a trail of Chips Ahoys for them to follow. Okay, the cookie trail doesn't happen, but he does lead what ends up looking li...

    "Fright Night" - Ranked Against Other Remakes, a Defense of the 3D Work, Views on Teen Sexuality

    If you ignored Craig Gillespie's "Fright Night" over the weekend, letting it pretty much die in sixth place, I forgive you. It's an entertaining and much-improved version of Tom Holland's 1985 original, but it's not an immediate must-see title for theater viewing only. And with a lackluster use of 3...
