Hollywood: Same Shit, Different Pile

Was making the movie Zathura necessary? Really? It’s about a couple boys who find a board game that propels their house into a space adventure. Does that sound familiar? That’s Jumanji, except in space instead of the jungle.

Well, that’s not entirely accurate. There’s no Robin Williams, or even young, hot, Kirsten Dunst. Instead, we have Dax Shepard (I’ve never heard of him either) and two young boys. Oh, and Tim Robbins. I can understand the younger actors getting involved, but Tim Robbins. I should send this, if I had his address.

Dear Tim,

Fire your agent. He’s a moron.

Your friend, Derik

In all fairness, this actually a sequel of sorts to Jumanji, but didn’t we get our fill of that plot in the first movie? Is there an original idea in all of California? Based upon the script ideas in Query Letters I Love, it doesn’t seem like it. Hell, this summer was all remakes and sequels.

There’s a reason I’ve seen a single movie in theaters in the last three months. It’s not because it’s expensive (that only helps).

  • Trannie Surprise: Cum Sluts # 17 came out this year!

    Woooo yayyyy! O:-D

    Shopgirl is out this year too, based on Steve Martin’s short novella, looks kinda dull (like Lost in Translation)

    Nonetheless, being the big Steve Martin fan, I shall pay good money to see (after I spend good bandwitdh to .. erm, preview it) 🙂

    Also, Aeon Flux is coming out, Serenity was pretty good, Slither looks interesting and funny, King Kong and The Davinci Code look promising.

    Cum Sluts #17 ???? You mean I missed the first 16?

    I have seen one release in the theaters this year to date. Why? Because I have a Sony HDTV and Sony DVD player and (what the local cable system passes as) cable HD. And I can watch from my sofa in my underwear and scratch myself if need be and not embarrass myself.
