New Films, Remakes & Sequels

Universal Soldiers 3Have you noticed the trend in the entertainment industry? Hollywood, and even our very own, are making decisions to remake/make a sequel of this or that faster than a machine gun. Though some are a little interesting (The Neverending Story), others are just plain hideous. Who would want an Attack of the Killer Tomatoes remake?

I've searched lists of upcoming sequels and remakes and I was surprised to see some titles. For the sequels we have Ghostbusters 3 and Universal Soldiers: The Next Generation (in photo). Don't blame me, but I loved the originals as a kid that's why I'll be following these two.

Now for the remakes:
Footloose (I just hope they cast a really good dancer)
Short Circuit
A Nightmare on Elm Street
Clash of the Titans (This is interesting. Liam Neeson and Ralph Fiennes together again after Schindler's List. They would play Zeus and Hades, respectively.)
Child's Play (When will Chucky die?)

The other films I'm following are: The Story of Bonnie & Clyde starring Hilary Duff, though I would like to see the older version first; Robin Hood starring Russell Crowe in a not so tight tights and Mr. Darcy as the Sheriff (in photo); last but not the least, The Lovely Bones, which is a little out of topic. But why include it?The Lovely Bones Mark Wahlberg
  • because I read the book
  • because I liked the book
  • because it's Peter Jackson's movie
  • because Mark Wahlberg is in it

Goodbye Geocities

But I just reworked one of the Geocities sites I made... guess I need to back up files now. Ever since social networking sites and wikis boomed, I lost track of all those fan sites I used to visit. They were pushed back in search results.

Yes, Geocities is king of badly designed sites, but some of these pages have amazing content quality. And I salute all those who worked hard to maintain their little web sites. If you haven't tried it, I can tell you it needs a lot of patience. I just hope all information, esp. important ones, are saved.

Here's the site for the Dominican Sisters.

*misses the fan sites already*

The 3rd poetry night was a success! The show started with lights off... Poetry and the arts work well with Earth hour. Then there was an open mic, some music artists and a dance number.

Some of the performers that night:
