#1 I just Realized Just How Unoriginal Hollywood Really Is These Days03-22-2012, 03:33 AM
It's bad enough that a majority of movies being released are remakes and sequels but now the new thing is re-releasing old movies redone in 3D? No wonder why I don't go to movies anymore. Why am I going to pay $14 to see Star Wars when all I have to do is pop in the DVD? And now they're re-releasing Titanic in 3D? Oy.Deplorably Proud To Be An American

Have you seen the previews for Tim Burton's "Dark Shadows", starring Johnny Depp as Barnabas Collins?
It's going to be a comedy. It actually looked funny in the ad I saw, as it was totally riffing on the 70s. Still, that can get old fast when one has to shell out around $10 to see a movie these days.

That light went off for me way back when they made the Brady Bunch movie.

Warren Buffet said that there were once 2600 car companies in the US, and now there are three. Were the other 2597 pointless? Or did they lead us closer to a reliable and functioning transportation machine production?While you were hanging yourself , on someone else's words

Those auto manufacturers included failed start-ups (DeLorean comes to mind, or Tucker), that never produced more than a single model, or companies that died with their owners. Some were integrated into other companies (AMC/Jeep, for example) and some simply couldn't compete as the US auto industry became a union-driven pension and benefits industry that made cars on the side. However, any process that takes us from the Duesenberg Model SJ to the Chevy Volt is not progress in any sense of the term.

That looks like a car Herman Munster would drive.
