First blog in ages! Over a year ago, I was watching Return of the Jedi with a couple of pals. In the middle, my mate Russell Bailey said that he would like to see a version of the original Star Wars trilogy, but with the focus being on the dissolution of the friendship between Darth Vader and Palpatine.
Well, I liked this idea very much. So recently I've been thinking about a bunch of other films I would like to see re-imagined....
James Bond where there's no spy stuff or fighting going on, just an international playboy doing his thing
A movie which charts the small talk made between Dorothy, The Scarecrow, the Tin Man and the Cowardly Lion as they walk down the yellow brick road
A real-time film which shows Tim Robbins crawling through the sewer for an hour and a half in The Shawshank Redemption
Wall-E vs. Johnny 5
What would *really* happen if it was Groundhogs Day
All the other conversations that took place in the bar in Casablanca
The Shining, but Jack finishes his novel and they go home
Annie Hall, but when Diane Keaton offers Woody a lift home after the tennis game, Alien busts out of his chest
Ferris Bueller loses his virginity
Predator, told from the Predator's point of view
Ghostbusters, told from the Staypuft Marshmallow Man's point of view
.... that's everything that springs to mind just now.
