I'm sick of the 1970s:
I read today that Billy Bob Thorton will be staring in a remake of The
Bad News Bears.
My first thought was: It's kind of cool that the Bad News Bears are coming back. My second thought
was: Yuck! Billy Bob? Eeew. My third thought was: How much schlock of the 1970s has to be remade into new schlock?
I guess the 2000s will be remembered as the 1970s revival. It started early with the Charlie's
remake which was enjoyable and unique. Since then we've had the sequel: Full
, Starsky and Hutch
, and the
recent Battlestar Galactica miniseries.
We're not quite a third into this decade but with the TV shows becoming films, music trying to capture
that oh so melodious lame sound of the 70s ballads, and the hip-hugging bell bottoms making a comeback, it's going to be
a long and ugly decade.
