The Crow ReMaKe

Read this article about The Crow remake with Bradley Cooper first.

I don't know how I feel about a Crow remake. The original Crow is almost like a masterpiece in it's own way. I was a fan of City of Angels as well because I loved the first one so much and I love the Deftones (the band playing the concert in the movie). This is a remake that I wouldn't mind being remade as long as it's done right. As far as Bradley Cooper goes, it's 50/50. I always remember him as the douche bag in The Wedding Crashers. I wasn't a fan of the Hangover at all. I haven't seen anything else with him in it.

As far as it being done right I'd like to see a dark city like the Crow had. I of course don't want any insane graphics or CGI done to the movie cause that would definitely ruin it. I mean the imagery is going to be a lot better than the 90's film, but don't make it computer animated. AND ABSOLUTELY NO 3D!!!!!!!

Bradley Cooper would not be my number one choice, I haven't really thought about that yet. He just doesn't have the dark hair, the dark attitude, or any kind of characteristic that Brandon Lee had. Obviously they'll fix his looks, and he can work on the character. As I sit here and think about actors who could or could have been a good Eric Draven, I think Heath Ledger could have made for a good Eric Draven. Hmm, who else... Maybe the dude who played Prince Caspian on the Narnia movies? I think his name is Ben something. I don't know! If Bradley Cooper is the man, then I hope he does it RIGHT!

Another key element that made the Crow experience whole was the soundtrack. The first two movies had awesome soundtracks to them. The Crow had Pantera, Rage Against the Machine, Rollins Band, The Cure, and others. City of Angels had the better soundtrack with Hole and their version of Fleetwood Mac's "Gold Dust Woman". They had the Deftones, White Zombie, Filter, Korn, Toadies, Iggy Pop and so many more artists.

Just another case in the world of remakes that didn't really need to be done.

I'm well aware I talk WAY too much about movie remakes haha.

The Horror Movie Industry is DEAD!!!

Just a year over this blog and now at the 50th postiversity...anniversablog...

...well it's the 50th post... so pop a bottle of champagne for this uneventful event and listen to me rant about today's Best Buy trip.

The horror movie industry is dead. Why do I say this? En route to Best Buy today, I had such a craving for horror movies that I decided that I was going to pick up some cheap horror flicks and fulfill my craving with some awesomeness. Good or bad, I just needed some horror. Now Best Buy recently has been going through some movie changes. With blu ray movies becoming cheaper and more affordable, Best Buy felt they needed to cater to the blu ray craze. With more aisles of blu ray movies that are not categorized by genre, only alphabetically, the dvd aisles are lessening each year. Don't get me wrong, I have about 75 blu ray myself, but there are not many horror movies released on blu ray. As I entered the horror section (which used to have it's own aisle and a half) I came to a section that was 1/4 of the whole aisle. It was labeled horror. I thought to myself, "Has Best Buy given up on today's horror movie collection?". I was kind of annoyed that the horror DVD section had been smaller than the anime and the WWE wrestling section. I was just in shock. Again I found the JAWS movies in Action. That's just a long time battle that I'm never going to win.

So what happened? Is America losing hope in horror? If you ask me, I think people are so gung ho on all of these shit hole comedy movies like The Hangover and any 20 million other Seth Rogen and Zack Galifigienoogoo guy in. Not to mentioned the Katherine Heigl movie infestation seen here.

It's just funny how all these comedies and romantic movies are all becoming the staple of the film industry. They're just repeating movie plots and adding mini twists and actors and actresses. It seems like the only thing horror movies are doing today are re-makes of old movies or re-makes of asian horror movies. There's nothing to show for the industry. Much respect to these b class horror producers that are trying to make a name for themselves. I have a lot of respect for the Monsters of Horror, and Horrorfest people and all of those horror film makers. No ones getting recognition and it's a fucking shame.

side note: if anyone has ever gone to Tom Savini's make up school, message me somehow!

As I looked through the collection of horror movies they were all over priced, and the selection was just terrible. There was an overstock of the movie DEVIL by M Night Shia Labeof haha. They had too many The Strangers DVD's as well. Oh and too many Piranha films. I found a $13 4 movie collection of Critters 1, 2, 3, and 4 that I bought, other than that, the movies were bad. I remember going there just last year and seeing all kinds of Evil Dead the book of the dead cases. I remember seeing all kinds of cool box sets for Hellraiser, the Return of the Living Dead series. I remember the Freddy and Jason boxed sets. All of this DVD goodness is just lost in some Best Buy factory now. is probably the best place to find cheap and rare horror DVD's and blu ray's. I made a wish list of all of the horror movies that I still need to add to my collection. I'm afraid if I add any DVD's that they'll be on blu ray sooner than later.


Jurrassic Park
From Dusk Til Dawn (May 3rd, 2011)
Legend(non-horror May 31st, 2011)
Ghostbusters 2

and every other 80's classic horror movie.

Well that's it for now. I'm becoming part of the Youtube community and starting up a movie, music, blu ray, dvd, video game, media, awesomeness channel. I doubt anyone will watch, but I get bored just writing sometimes.
