No Movie Is Safe From Becoming A Remake

Lately, we’ve been noticing that no movie from your childhood (or your parents’ for that matter) is safe from being remade. “Annie” is being rebooted with Willow Smith in the lead role and new songs by Jay-Z. Warner Brothers is currently working on a remake of “The Bodyguard,” the Whitney Houston classic. Kate Winslet recently rocked period garb for a reimagining of “Mildred Pierce.” Oh, and did we mention that “Dirty Dancing” is getting the remake treatment, too? Sometimes, remakes are a great idea. Other times—and let’s be honest, usually—we wish filmmakers would leave good enough alone. So, we decided to steal a play from New York Magazine and make an Approval Matrix of all the movie remakes.

You just have to be content and happy and hopefully healthy. I’m not putting [pressure] on people. I don’t see myself that way. And it’s very often [perpetrated by] women journalists. They say things like, ‘Tell me the secret of how you look so good?’” [rolls her eyes] Go away! Don’t do this to other women. Don’t use this interview in that way.”

Helen Mirren proves she’s still the most kickass lady in all of Hollywood. May we all have such a healthy attitude towards our own appearance, and the appearance of other women, as we age and become less conventionally “attractive.” [Scotsman] Keep reading »
