Review: The Hustle

My recommendation for seeing The Hustle? Just rent the original, which is a remake itself. The Hustle, despite its name change and gender swapping, is often a shot-for-shot remake of Dirty Rotten Scoundrels. I thought it was strange that th...

Live-action Lion King gets its official trailer

I've gotta say, for as much as I think studios need to be held accountable for unnecessary sequels, revivals, resurrections, blood sacrifices, reboots, and remakes, Disney seems to be doing right by their classic slate of animated films as ...

Review: Dumbo

First look Alicia Vikander as new Lara Croft, Tomb Raider

It's been a long time and many children later since Angelina Jolie donned the tank top and short shorts of Lara Croft, the Tomb Raider. So, needless to say, we are owed, nay due a remake, or a reboot, or a relaunch, or something. I forgot o...

 
 
Chips Trailer photo

First trailer for the CHiPs remake is pretty bad

Joining shows getting remade for the screen like The A-Team, 21 Jump Street, and Baywatch, is CHiPs, a show practically everyone forgot about. And like 21 Jump Street, this new Chips is trying to be a goofy buddy comedy that would reinvigor...
