Good morning!

We're into spring for the next couple of days. Clear and highs in the 60s. What an unbelievably topsy-turvy winter this has been!

I'm excited about having only two more BEAUTY AND THE BEAST episodes to watch today. These abbreviated seasons for shows make getting through a TV box set a lot less hectic.

Of course, up next is 20 episodes of SOUL FOOD.

I got the Blu-ray of MONTY PYTHON'S LIFE OF BRIAN in the mail yesterday (not for review, jsut for me). I'd actually like to watch that at some point today. As much as I like HOLY GRAIL, I think LIFE OF BRIAN is more consistently funny

I'd like to see a Rob Marshall directed film of A CHORUS LINE. I think he could do the property justice, and I'm sure his choreography would be far more interesting than the junk Jeffrey Hornaday did for the Attenborough version. He might could do an interesting ON THE TOWN with the original score, too.

I will eventually get around to seeing the Nicole Kidman THE INVASION once it comes on one of the paycable channels. I certainly have no intention of buying or renting the DVD/Blu-ray. I'm not in a hurry to see any more versions of it.

I did think the 1978 version was ill-advised until I saw it, and it was an interesting take on the material. The original is still by far the best, but the 1978 one is very entertaining and particularly haunting in its own way.

Good morning, all! Yesterday afternoon, I had a delightful meeting with Karen Mason; we laughed, dished, schemed for about two hours until I, in a very enthusiastic move, knocked a glass of water all over the table, drenching everything.  She's such a wonderful lady.  She sends her regards to you, BK!

After that, I went home and began unpacking boks from their plastic bags.  I suspect I unleashed a few bugs because I killed one crawling on my arm about 1:30 am this morning, the first I've seen in a week.  So, this morning, I Steri-Fabbed and vacuumed myself into a stupor whilke the laundry was going through as many cycles as my mind. When I get home this afternoon, I've got to cart the UPS pickup down to a UPS store on Amsterdam and 77th Street.  I'll vacuum again, to pick up anything the Steri-Fab might have killed or drudged up from a crack in the floor.  I gotta tell ya, this is getting old.

Re yesterday's BRIGADOON discussion, I too love the Shirley Jones-Jack Cassidy recording, but I now prefer the McGlinn-EMI one because it has so much of the glorious dance music.

TOD:
I too would love a new version of ON THE TOWN that uses the Bernstein score correctly. I'd also like to see a new CAROUSEL since I think the 1956 film is rather dreadful.

A wise movie producer (actually, several of them) once said that you should never remake a hit movie...only a flop.  If you remake a hit, you're always competing with the memory of the first movie.

That said, I wouldn't mind seeing a new version of MAN OF LA MANCHA or THE WIZ.  Those filmmakers missed badly the first time around.

But, I have to disagree with the poster who didn't like CAROUSEL.  I thought it was quite good...and the ending always brings a tear to my eye.

Weren't they talking about remaking CAROUSEL a couple of years ago with Hugh Jackman?

Saturday morning greetings!  This is my weekend off - 3 days without much on the calendar.  I'm waiting for a call from the hospital, where my aunt went yesterday for an outpatient procedure.  They kept her overnight because of some complications and, if she's released today, I'll transport her back to the retirement community.

While awaiting that call, I'm puttering around the house and catching up on email and snail mail.

Yes, they were going to remake EVERY musical ever written with Mr. Jackman - it was a done deal, with each musical trumpeted loudly by his press agent - only prob was none of it was true, but when one tried to point that out to the rubes on certain boards one was met with a barrage of nasty responses saying it WAS true.  Two years, three years later, where are these films?  Do these people ever come back and apologize for their incorrect posts?  No.  Not only do they not do that, they deny ever making them.

They say to never remake a hit film, and yet they keep doing it, over and over, and always badly.  Sadly, with today's filmmakers, even when they remake a less than stellar film like Man On Fire they do it badly.
