A Dream of Non-Crappy Films

*****I apologize for Re-Posting this, but I deleted it in Haste.  My bad.*****

After a week of films that may or may not have been Terrible, I wanted to write a little something on good films.  I won't review one, mind you, but I will talk about ones that I want to happen.

Given how cynical/realistic I am, I will also wager a guess as to how my dreams will die horribly as well.  Enjoy.

1. A New Blind Dead Movie
I Want...a film produced with a big budget (not huge, mind you), a good Cast and talented people behind it. Make it a rehash- I don't care.

I Will Get...Michael Bay's Platinum Dunes.

2. An Updated Demons Film

I Want...a new version of the tale, complete with modern effects (not all CG please) and set in the modern day.  You could play with the idea that everyone now has DVD/Blu-Ray players and make it bigger in scale too.  Again- it could be a rehash.  Given how under-the-radar the original two are, I could accept that.

I Will Get...a bunch of teen stars, CG Demons and...probably Michael Bay again.

3. A New *Good* Jaws Film
I Want...a modern film good enough to erase bad memories of Jaws 3-D and Jaws: The Revenge.  I'd love Spielberg to come back...but I don't know how feasible that is.  To have him come back forty-years later and having learned his lessons about what to do and what not to would be a great story.

I Will Get...more Asylum films.  Worst Case Scenario is still the Re-Animated pair of Joe D'Amato and Bruno Mattei making a film for $50 though.

4. A Horror/Sci-Fi Crossover That Doesn't Disappoint
I Want...something that works with both stories, could work on its own (just provide the necessary origins) and does not disappoint.  Whether it's Aliens vs. ZombiesPredator vs. Jason, Godzilla vs. Mega-Shark or (my favorite) Leprechaun vs. Candyman, I want something.  Probably not any of those I just mentioned though.

I Will Get...more of the same old crap.  If any major one gets made, they'll find some way to screw it up (see Jason's sudden water-phobia)

So that's a taste of what I want.  Do you have some dream films that you want to suggest?  If so, leave a comment...

  1. omg yeah, a new Blind Dead would be awesome. When I saw "LIVID" in summer, I got a massive Blind-Dead-flashback because the opening looks very D'Ossorio-esque. Would be great if Maury and Bustillo could make a reboot.

    A new Demons film? Why not? In this case I think Alexandre Aja would be the right man. I think he would be able to capture the stunning Bava/Argento atmosphere.

    Not so sure about Jaws, mainly because we got shitloads of shark-flicks in the last years. If there ever will be a new Jaws-flick, I'm pretty sure it's gonna be a remake, directed by a music-video-director, produced by Bay :)

    Leprechaun vs. Candyman? ROFL That would be awesome :D
