I am not suggesting that all remake movies have no merit; however, America has grown addicted to recycled bubblegum tripe. There are a few original films to watch at the Multiplex. And just check your cable listings on any given night. I think it reflects the overall lack of cultural sophistication that our country increasingly exhibits. Face it, when we start electing reality television personalities to the highest office, we’ve gone down the shitter.

I don't like Velma, I love Velma. And I lust after her indescribable ways. 

But I watched both of the live-action movies that came out in the early 2000s with my nephews, and they're aggressively terrible.

Hey, check this out. The biggest video of the year is here... now.

Personally I think the tape is worthless without drop dead Fred.  Roll Eyes

There were so many bad remakes in that era:  To name a few:

The Flintstones
Charlie’s Angels
The Beverly Hillbillies
The Addams Family
Inspector Gadget
The Dukes of Hazard
The Brady Bunch
The Fugitive
CHiP’s
George of the Jungle
The Jetsons
Scooby Doo
Yogi Bear
Sponge Bob
Get Smart
Dark Shadows
South Park
Mission Impossible
Wild Wild West

And of course:

Batman
Superman
Star Trek



While this is swerving somewhat off topic, I'd suspect I'm far from alone in considering some of the movies on your list as "bad."

I've only seen the first two Tom Cruise "Mission Impossible" movies, but I found them both to be absolutely thrilling. And the same goes, perhaps even more so, for the Harrison Ford remake of "The Fugitive." 

In context, the first Spongebob movie is almost perfect. The two "Addams Family" movies, with Raul Julia, Angelica Huston, Christopher Lloyd, and a young Christina Ricci, are terrific dark comedies. And the "George of the Jungle" remake with Brendan Frasier is laugh out loud funny from start to finish. 

Imho...


George of the Jungle was one of my favourite movies when I was a kid and it's closer to a parody than a remake. I agree with the rest of what you said, perhaps with the exception of Mission Impossible 2, and I would add a few more comments.

The Batman "remakes" have little resemblance either to one another or the Adam West series (which was itself of course a comic book adaptation). Both Burton and Nolan's take on the character were unique and interesting movies, especially in the context of the superhero movie genre. As far as I know, Spongebob has never been remade, but I don't know much about it. South Park certainly hasn't and the one movie that exists was made by the creators of the show, in continuity with the show and did not disrupt release of the show. Hard to see what the problem is there.

One of the few times the porn parody of a movie/television series may be better.  Cool

Hmmm...indescribable ways?  Grin

You're right.

While there have been two feature-length Spongebob movies released in theaters, they weren't remakes, they were movie versions of the TV show, made by the same people, and featuring the same voice actors. Well, the same voice actors, plus David Hasselhoff, who does a hilarious self-parody.

Okay, you just made me feel old.

The Brendan Frasier "George of the Jungle" remake came out when I was 18.

And it's really a parody of a parody, since the "George of the Jungle" cartoon series from the 1960s was itself a parody of the Tarzan movies.

I was 7 when it was released, but I saw it first on video maybe a year later. Going to the cinema was reserved for birthdays when I was that age so movies might as well have not existed until I saw them on video. I also never realised there was originally a cartoon series. I've at least heard of all the others from the list.

For those of us who were kids in the 1960’s...

<a href="https://www.youtube.com/v/EaXWy-HQefc&rel=1" target="_blank">https://www.youtube.com/v/EaXWy-HQefc&rel=1</a>

George, George
George of the Jungle,
Strong as he can be.
(Ahhhhhhhh)
Watch out for that tree!

George, George,
George of the Jungle,
Lives a life that's free.
(Ahhhhhhhh)
Watch out for that tree!

When he gets in a scrape,
he makes his escape
with the help of his friend,
an ape named Ape.
Then away he'll schlep
on his elephant Shep
While Fella and Ursula*
Stay in step...with

George, George
George of the Jungle,
Friend to you and me.
(Ahhhhhhhh)
Watch out for that tree!

Watch out for that--
(Ahhhhhhhh)
Treeeee....

George, George
George of the Jungle
Friend to you and me!

[*In the opening of the song, it indeed says "Fella"
(its sometimes erroneously credited as "Velma" or "Thelma")
June Foray, the voice of Ursula, explained:
"It was a joke. The song said Fella and Ursula because George would sometimes call Ursula 'Fella'"
-As answered in "The Magic Behind the Voices: A Who's Who of Cartoon Voice Actors"]

The cartoon show was an American thing, and it likely never made its way over there.

And, for the record, I only saw it in syndication, since it originally aired long before I was born (see, now I'm feeling younger again!).

Another attempt to shrink a movie into the TV.

Fun fact: Oliver from The Brady Bunch played Booger.  Roll Eyes

Ditto. But it's still nostalgia. Or stupid. I'm nostalgic for the 80s and I wasn't even there for any of it.  emot_laughing

Now for those of us who lived and enjoyed the 60s, and even remembered some of it, now that is nostalgia.  Cool Cool
