POINT BREAK REMAKE - DO WE LIKE GRRRRRR- NOT SURE





I remember discussing with various friends, colleagues and a vague industry type about the question why would you remake “Point Break”. The original had a young Keanu Reeves playing new cop Johnny Utah, Patrick Swayze playing criminal mastermind surfer and a pre insanity Gary Busey rocking a Hawaiian Shirt to high standard.  

It is very hard to get that chemistry right and not have the plot (which is a blahhhhh) come off looking silly. However the original is superb action filmmaking and boasts one of the most enjoyable chase scenes committed to film. A scene which relies on proper old school editing, and actors running hard, and taking bumps.  (Referenced not subtly in “Hot Fuzz”). 

Also remember the original had NO CGI……….was directed by Kathryn Bigelow who went on to produce the epic (well I thought so) Strange Days.

It was a testament to the acting of the often underrated Swayze that he made the character who does some pretty (to coin a Surfer phrase) hanus things in the film, actually quite likable.
So are we happy they have done this?

I am not, even though I have a soft spot for the actor Édgar Ramírez who has gravitas beyond his years, I’m not sure I want a remake.

So we had this …….and you must watch the whole trailer.



And now we have this…………



#Grrrrrrrrrrrrrr

As always Love and Peace

ANOTHER REBOOT - CHARLIE'S ANGELS

Charlie's Angels 


 I kind off liked the original very much, educated on its reruns, as to the art of sassy and tough.

 
#Charlie's Angels.......................



There isn’t much to say is there, other than Why NO, and err…surely not more after this?


Charlie's Angels (film)

It is a difficult thing to say politely but they are thinking of bringing Charlie’s Angels back to the big screen.  Sure three attractive ladies being kung fu filled and action driven?.....well maybe.

Please cast properly though and have Megan Fox in it, I’d like to see that

Cheers

EVIL KINEVAL BIOPIC - MORE RANDOM LESS THE TREE OF LIFE?



Surely THE BEST NEWS we have had in ages?



Well maybe not but it must be true to say that the latest idea from the brain of Darren Aronofsky is the belief in his ability to direct an Evil Kineval biopic! Well one thinks this could be wild, let’s hope it is as trippy as the life of the man actually as.

What do we think? perhaps consider a little taster of the man and his myth below with a glimpse into his howmanship that often belied the reality of what he put his body through.

Love and peace
