As I ‘m sure you ‘re all aware because we ‘re all bombarded by them everywhere we look, Disney has been all about rebooting its classic films as of late. Now, by “classic ‘ I mean actual classics. Like Beauty and the Beast, or Cinderella, or The Jungle Book and The Lion King. I can ‘t speak for the rest of you, but for the most part I ‘ve been fine with these reimaginings of movies we all grew up with. Sure, they ‘re not original stories, but it ‘s cool to see how today ‘s technology and a new generation of filmmakers and talent change (and maybe even improve) upon these iconic films.
That being said, there are some things that just shouldn ‘t be remade. Or at least, not yet.
Disney just announced this week that the next batch of movies that are going to get a 2019 do-over are Home Alone and Night at the Museum.
First of all, on the Disney timeline, Night at the Museum is a literal baby. The first film was made in 2006 and the last installment was released in 2014. TWO-THOUSAND-FOURTEEN. WE ‘RE BARELY A DECADE OUT FROM THE ORIGINAL MOVIE. How are we even remotely close to being ready for a REMAKE? Rhetorical question, we ‘re not. And rightfully so. SECONDLY, sure, Home Alone is from 1990. So at least we ‘re coming up to the 30 year mark on that one. However, what could a remake of Home Alone provide audiences with this time that they didn ‘t get the first time around?? It ‘s already a live action movie! There is no terrible 90 ‘s CGI to rectify! AND IT HAS JOHN CANDY!
