highschoolmusical

In this week’s installment of snarky comments about home video releases, it’s more snark and less purchasing for me.

Just not a lot to interest a middle-aged cynic. Looks like I get to save some money this time around.

Maybe you’ll find something you like.

Firefly

How lackluster? Look inside, if you dare.

Will It Ever Stop

Please Hollywood, GET A NEW IMAGINATION. Seriously! So Good old MTV is going to mess up something else. Daniel Frankel, a writer at Variety.com put this info up a while ago and I just stumbled across it.

MTV is doing the time warp on a remake of 1975 cult classic “The Rocky Horror Picture Show.”

Lou Adler, exec producer of the original film, is partnering with BermanBraun and Fox Television Studios on the new rendition.

Two-hour remake will use the original screenplay by Jim Sharman and Richard O’Brien but may also include music not featured in the original.

Check out the Original story here while I go cry in a corner because my dog has more creativity than Hollywood.

Dalmation Divorce Ends Tragically

When you think about Disney cartoon movies you most likely think of family first. But if you look into the families of the movies there are very few actual families. Simbas dad dies, Jasmin and Ariel have no mothers, and don’t get me started on the TONS of evil step mothers. Well looks like one of the very few movie families that were together has split, check out the other side for the full story. If you are faint of heart or have a weak stomach DO NOT read on.

New In Theaters 8-1-08

Movies releasing in theaters this week:

Brideshead Revisited – Rated PG-13

A remake of a TV mini-series, based on a novel, that is a talky drama set in WWII, with no action? Please, oh please, may I watch it twice? </sarcasm>

Choke – Rated R

You know, this one actually looks like it might be good!

Swing Vote – Rated PG-13

So, in a freak turn of events one man gets to decide the U.S. Presidency? I don’t know if I can overlook a ridiculous premise like that. Maybe with a case of beer, and a free rental somewhere…

Midnight Meat Train – Rated R

Based on one of my favorite Clive Barker stories, this is my pick of the week. However, if it’s half as bloody as the short story, you may want to miss it if you have a weak stomach.

The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor – Rated PG-13

A sequel to a remake, with Brendan Frasier. That’s all that really needs to be said. Why Jet, why? Michelle Yeoh, you should know better too.
