I am livid. Livid.

Read:

The Oscar-winning Best Foreign Film is to be remade as a Hollywood movie. German espionage drama The Lives Of Others will be revamped as an English-language film with moviemakers Sydney Pollack and Anthony Minghella coming together for the project. Pollack tells trade paper Daily Variety, "We would just desperately love for that film to be something that reaches more people. We haven't gotten locked into making it yet, but we're working hard at trying to get it going." The film's writer/director Florian Henckel Von Donnersmarck claimed Oscar gold for the film in February.

THE HELL

THE HELL

THE HELL

Leaving aside the issue of this is time and place specific and uncreative and will ruin a masterpiece and everything. WTF. It just came out last year. Is it for people too dumb to read subtitles?

I have no words.

Mingella and Pollack, you are dead to me.

Now I know how people who loved Infernal Affairs felt.

P.S. To have something funny out of the debacle, this post on IMDB on the remake pitch was awesome: Funny cuts )

OK, listen boss, er...forget it huh? Maybe it wasn't such a good idea.

Kid I got a better idea. Stacey is part of a team to destroy an asteroid heading for New York, but it causes a tidal wave see, and then some Islamic extremists hijack a plane, and Bruce Willis gets on the plane, see, and....hey kid...come back!

*door slams*

In much more amusing news, OMG. Is slash mainstream now or something?

Best Friend will be in town visiting this weekend and tomorrow Mr. Mousie, she and I are going to celebrate by doing that quintessential cool thing: going to see Spiderman 3 :D

Well, I was reading reviews (not that it matters, I’d see it anyway) and came across the Time’s review. You know, uber-mainstream, normal Time.

And I came across the following in the review:

I've often complained on this site about how Hollywood movies ignore women, or turn them into figures of fem-machismo. Now I see that, in the burliest genres, men's roles are being feminized. Peter Parker may be affianced to M.J., but their love seems pretty shallow and perfunctory. His most intense relationship is with Harry, his friend and surrogate brother — someone to try to talk sense to, to banter and battle with, to caress lovingly when he's hurt.

Um.

UM.

Okay.

LOL.

Heeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee.

(For the record, I am all about Peter/MJ but the above is too yummy not to quote. Plus, Harry=HOT).

I have to say, I’ve got some respect for Prince Harry after reading that he wants (and will) serve with a combat unit in Iraq. He clearly doesn’t have to do so, so at least he's got some guts.

Changing tack, I keep being haunted by The Lives of Others. It is an amazing film and I’ll try to see it again before it leaves theaters, if I can.

Lengthy spoilery ramble on the movie )

I only rarely find reviews that really express what I feel, but I found one here. It’s San Francisco Chronicle.
