Why the Veronica Mars Kickstarter is a Very Dangerous Idea


Let me start by saying I have no opinion about the show Veronica Mars. While I have been aware of the show, I have never watched an episode. I enjoy the star, Kristen Bell, and coincidentally, have in the past very much enjoyed the work of the actor who plays her father Enrico Colantoni in Just Shoot Me and Galaxy Quest. That being said, Veronica Mars is a show I just never got around to. Continue reading

Episode 67 – Remakes We Want to See


We all know Hollywood is pretty much out of ideas.  Nowadays, it seems like 90% of the movies hitting theaters is either some sort of remake or reboot, likely of something that has already been remade a couple times before.  The awesome and epic story-tellers and directors (Looking at you, Nolan and Whedon) seem to finally be getting their chance to really shine, but studios are just too afraid to take a chance on those unique indie projects waiting in the wings, so it looks like we’re stuck with the likes of Michael Bay, Joel Schumacher, and Brett Ratner.  Join us this week as we discuss the movies that we actually want to see remade (because it’s going to happen eventually), but only if someone with talent can do it!  Wipe your classic memories away, burn up those original scripts, and whatever you do, don’t even think of Transformers as we discuss our remake picks on a brand new episode of Monkey in the Cage!
