This Christmas ... YOGI BEAR. In 3D. With Dan Aykroyd as the voice of Yogi, and Justin Timberlake (!!!) as the voice of BooBoo.

 

I now truly believe that the apocalypse is nigh.

Ive said this for 10 years now! actually ive gotten almost ran off the IMDB arguing with people until theres just so many people that I cant possibly keep arguing with them all, ever since the lames in hollywood started watching Japanese Horror movies, and american 80's comedys, it's been a suck fest to see who can take the most original authentic movie available, cut the balls off of it, and release it to the american public, not mentioning that it's a remake or a rip off of a foreign film!! it's why I dont watch american movies anylonger, unless they are pre-1999!

What I don't get is that they keep doing stuff like this, or remaking films that either are only about 20 years old or were far too good in the first place to warrant a remake, when there are so many great stories out there that have never been made. For example, there was a film version of Jeffrey Deaver's 'The Bone Collector', a really good thriller and a successful movie. Deaver has written countless other excellent, gripping thriller novels, yet none of them have been made into major films. There are stacks of other examples too.

 

I just can't believe that someone gets a load of scripts and instead of trying something new, decides to remake perfectly good films like 'The Wicker Man', 'Planet of The Apes' and 'Charlie and the Chocolate Factory' (the latter of which I think was a terrible film, btw, the others I can't bear to watch).

Yeah, really good point mate. I, for one, it appears, really have no issue with all these remakes. Like I generally don't like my music before 1984, I generally don't like my movies before about 1995 (lol!). Of course, as with music, there are exceptions (plenty in this case, in fact. It's not a must by any means, just a preference). It's not the actual stories that are the issue, of course... it's just how I like my movies to look.

 

I personally like the good remakes with sexy new actors of older movies I'd otherwise not end up bothering with.

 

BUT, I fully agree with your point. I read so many books, 99% of which were not made into film, and I wonder why they weren't given the shot. Because so many of them would make a good film. It would be very easy to feast on a banquet of original ideas, but for whatever reason it isn't always the number one choice.

 

I guess it's kind of like the shitty bands who would rather disappoint all their fans with a new covers album rather than trying their hand at new songs themselves...

It's a mystery. Dan Brown and JK Rowling can produce any old rubbish and it gets onto the big screen, yet there are so many great stories that don't get made into films. It's all about the stories for me, you can't beat a good yarn (shame the film producers don't agree).

    • Releases July 26. $47.08 at ImportCDs: https://www.importcds.com/dynamite-china-years-complete-recordings-1988-1993/5013929929920 8CD complete collection of recordings released by China Records. Featuring what most consider to be the classic line-up of The Dogs D'Amour; Jo 'Dog' Almeida on guitar, Steve James on bass, the onomatopoeic Bam on drums, and of course fronted by songwriter and singer, the inimitable Tyla. Propelled by the albums' three singles 'The Kid from Kensington', 'I Don't Want You to Go' and 'How Come It Never Rains' edging their way up the charts, when The Dogs D'Amour's genre-defining 1988 "debut" 'In The Dynamite Jet Saloon' (CD2) was released in 1988, it must have looked like the band was an overnight sensation. But this couldn't have been further from the truth. The Dogs D'Amour originally formed in 1983, and had already recorded two previous "debut" albums. First was 1984's now highly collectable 'The State We're In', for Finnish label Kumibeat. Further recordings were made in 1985 and 1986 for Watanabe Records in Japan, and it's the latter where this collection kicks off. 'The (Un)Authorised Bootleg Album' (CD1) was the record originally intended for Japan. The second set in this collection is the aforementioned In 'The Dynamite Jet Saloon' (CD2), bursting with classics. A highly prolific band in their earliest days, 'Errol Flynn' (re-titled 'King Of The Thieves' in the States) (CD3) was released in 1989 as was the extended mini-album, 'A Graveyard Of Empty Bottles Vol. 1' (CD4), a collection of acoustic songs that reached the UK Top 20. 1990 saw the release of '... Straight?!!' (CD5) featuring the singles 'Victims of Success', 'Empty World' and 'Back On The Juice'. Unfortunately, and in true rock 'n' roll tradition, the band split up on stage in Los Angeles in 1991. Thankfully the band regrouped for the self-explanatory '... More Unchartered Heights Of Disgrace' (CD6) in 1993. This eight CD collection is completed with no less than two discs of rarities, live tracks and B-sides with 'Singles, B-Sides & Rarities' (CD7) and 'Even More Singles, B-Sides & Rarities' (CD8), making this the most complete and comprehensive collection of the band's recordings for China.   - Disc 1 - 1 Firework Girl 2 Chains 3 Gold 4 Pourin' Out My Heart 5 Wait Until I'm Dead 6 How Do You Fall in Love Again? 7 Kiss This Joint 8 Heroine 9 Tales of Destruction 10 Dynamite Jet Saloon 11 Swingin' the Bottle - Disc 2 - 1 Debauchery 2 I Don't Want You to Go 3 How Come It Never Rains 4 Last Bandit 5 Medicine Man 6 Gonna Get It Right 7 Everything I Want 8 Heartbreak 9 Billy Two Rivers 10 Wait Until I'm Dead 11 Sometimes 12 The Kid from Kensington 13 The State I'm in - Disc 3 - 1 Drunk Like Me 2 Goddess from the Gutter 3 Hurricane 4 Satellite Kid 5 Errol Flynn 6 Planetary Pied Piper 7 Princess Valium 8 Dogs Hair 9 Trail of Tears 10 Ballad of Jack 11 The Prettiest Girl in the World 12 The Girl Behind the Glass 13 Things Seem to Go Wrong 14 Oooh!
