Haven't they remade Lassie half a dozen times now?

If anything is overdue for a remake, it's The Warriors

You wanna talk to Mrs. Wilson? Why don't you wanna talk to Charlie? You think if you don't talk to me, I'll go away, but I can't go away, because I'm not here. I'm a ghost of a phantom of a shadow in the heart of your children!

Oh thank god, Subby, you scared me.. I thought for a moment one of the guys on my FB would be posting 50,000 comments a day about his grandfather being one of the Lassie trainers again. Oh wait, he does that already...

Oh, and this IS a repeat from 1945, 1946, 1947, 1948, 1949, 1950, 1951, 1954, 1963, 1968, 1970, 1971, 1972, 1978, 1989, 1994 and 1997.

Who cares, Lassie hasn't been good since they changed the name from Jeff's Collie and brought on that precocious little brat Timmy.
 
2012-11-21 04:09:02 PM
They'll have to update it, of course. This time little Timmy will have two "Dads", and Lassie will save them from eating non-organic vegan turkey, or some such nonsense.

I'm going to give this 6/10. Putting air quotes around 'Dads' was a nice touch.

I just had to pull that up on YouTube to watch it again, and I had no idea that Bob Odenkirk did Manson, which adds eleventy cool points.

Somebody find the Lassie PS with a monochrome Lassie waking up monochrome Timmy. Lassie and Timmy have about 3 seconds left...

I wish Hollywood would go back to the good old days and make original movies you know like Wizard of Oz and Ben Hur.

Oh great, now we can have another fad where collies are the newest and innest breed of dog to have. Except we'll shrink them, and they'll all be little shelties and miniature shelties, and they'll fit in your mailbox, and they'll all go 'yap yap yap yap' instead of barking, and they'll be more popular than pit bulls for about three years, then they'll all be sent to shelters with all the other fad dogs.

"What's that, Lassie, are people turning your fine breed of dog into another vanity product? There's only one thing to do, old girl--get all your friends together, and kill them all. Rip their throats out. You didn't hear that from me."

Here's what we do: You remake it pretty much as is except in the 3rd act Batman shows up and beats the living fark out of everyone. The twist ending is it's not really Bruce Wayne/Batman...it's Harvey Firestein out of his farking mind on PCP.

If anything needs a reboot, it's Lassie.

And guess who should direct said reboot?

Hollywood has never written original films. If you look at the imdb top 10 there is only one original story on it, Pulp Fiction. Everything else on it is a sequel or adaption.

Why? The international markets eat up insipid sequel explosion-fests. They make their money back before the picture even gets released in the States now. The studios have figured out how to make what America thinks of their movies completely irrelevant.

I'm ok with this. My dad got me into watching old episodes of Rawhide, so if they remake Lassie maybe Rawhide isnt too far behind. I totally expect Hollywood to crush another good family entertainment memory of mine anyway.

This has to be made, this just has to. You see, nature has a way of balancing out the world...and this nature's plan for Justin Bieber...he'll be given the role of Timmy, and when he eventually has to get trapped in the well the Earth will swollow him up and balance will have been restored.

What's that Lassie? Justin's trapped in the well? And no one gives a shiat?

BARK BARK!

I don't like Collies much. They're too hairy. I liked Porky's dog on Jeff's Collie. I think it was a Basset Hound.

I've had four shelties over the past thirty years. They were each awesome laid-back, chilled-out, quiet and well-behaved dogs.

The only downside was shedding season; long wispy fur everywhere for a few months each spring.

And they may not even make it with a descendant of Lassie. The company that owns the rights to the Lassie name stopped using descendants of the original Lassie years ago because the family that owns the bloodline got too demanding with the fees they wanted. But I suppose it it doesn't really make a difference since Lassies descendants don't look like Lassie any more than any other same breed of collie.
