I think we are all aware of the lack of original ideas coming out of mainstream movie production studio’s in recent years, why won’t they stop destroying are childhood memories. Yes, I get they are trying to capitalise on generational memory and nostalgia that sequels (decades later) and remakes can bring, but come on, hasn’t recent flops like Superman Returns (2006), TMNT (2014), Planet of the Apes (2001), A Nightmare On Elm Street (2010), The Day The Earth Stood Still (2008), Clash Of The Titans (2010), Charlie and the Chocolate Factory (2005) – I could go on but I won’t – taught them anything. Now, one of the best is about to be butchered, The Labyrinth. I despair. I only hope that Bowie, says no to this if they come to him. Not even he can save this car crash waiting to happen.
Prediction: I put this out in to the world that on this date, Friday 17th Oct 2014, for the next classic to be destroyed will be, The Princess Bride.
