Work - Movies

Spent the major portion of the day working with dravengodvamp to put up metal siding out at the farm. Not hard work, but sometimes it's hard to work with Ray. *shrug* Got a major chunk of it done, and Doug's help was invaluable, as usual.

Let me just swerve topics for a minute. About what? Film remakes, specifically horror. Maybe you don't think this is a big problem. I disagree; are you aware of the sheer amount of this going on? On top of, say, the recent Texas Chainsaw Massacre remake and other bigger ones, here's a list you may or may not have been aware of:
  • Prom Night (2005)
  • The Hills Have Eyes (2006)
  • When a Stranger Calls (2006)
  • The Omen 666 (2006)
  • Black Christmas (2006)
  • The Wicker Man (2006)
  • The Fog (2005)
  • Don't Look Now (2007)
Am I the only one that thinks this is excessive? Apparently. Fucking standards of entertainment have fallen so far, I'm starting to wonder if they'll ever rise again. Borrowing a phrase from Bill Hicks, these things are demons, sent from Hell, to lower the standards.
