DO NOT WANT!!!






Right then, that's fucked it. How many years do you reckon it will be before they decide the "franchise"(*) needs a gritty, reimagined reboot for a more modern age and they wipe the slate clear and remake the original? Probably after a long chain of steadily worse films that come out every three years to increasing indifference.

Wouldn't it just have been cheaper to have done this before making John Carter and then not bothered to make it?


(*) I really, really, really fucking hate the modern mis-use of this word to refer to film or computer game series. Anybody who uses it front of me in person will get kicked in the cock or vaj (delete as applicable).

  1. surely getting creative control out of the hands of George Lucas can only be a good thing at this point tho

    1. Unfortunately Lucas is staying on as "creative consultant" :(

  2. No-one in this dark century is allowed to love anything.

    If you happen to love something from before, it must be destroyed.

  3. Just a thought to cheer you up - haven't the Marvel films (including The Avengers) since Disney took over been pretty good?

  4. I think this is a generally good thing except for 2 issues.

    1) George Lucas still has creative control. This is the man who brought us Jar Jar Binks, Jetster Dexter, Ewoks...and the fecking Crystal Skull nonsense that messed up the Indiana Jones films

    2) George Lucas makes another bazillion dollars for being a lazy, untalented gimp

    1. It was an article on Cracked dot com I think. How to make a movie better: Indiana Jones and the Crystal Skull was just his hallucination as he died of rad poisoning inside that fridge.

  5. Disney are hardly known for rebooting things though ... more the opposite I would think?
