TGB is going to fucking kill me for this post

There's a song that goes breaking up is hard to do. I woke up singing that song in my head but, it's waking up is hard to do instead.

I remember when Fox announced they were going to re-do The Rocky Horror Picture Show. They were going to take this movie that I grew up on, my very first television babysitter, and reimagine it for a new generation.

Everyone whined like little bitches. Before the fucking movie ever came out.

I did not.

It happens with cover songs and movie remakes or even books made into movies all the time. I hate almost all cover songs but, I fucking listen to them before deciding its shit.

Same thing is happening with Heathers now. Paramount is booting up a remake and all the chicks who grew up loving it are whining like shitty little kids who don't wanna share their favorite toy.

My favorite movie in the history of cinema is East of Eden. They remade it sometime back. I was annoyed at first. I mean, remaking a fucking James Dean classic based on one half of a literary classic is not the same as remaking some tweener flick with chicks you don't remember and Winona Ryder.

But then it hit me, I just fucking don't have to watch it. And I won't give them the satisfaction of talking about it because fuck them getting the free marketing. So I never did watch or talk about it. Until now to make a point.

That you're better than all of us, Rudy?

No, you already know that. 

My point is that nobody can take what a movie/song means to me. And what it means to me should only matter to me.

If you love your shitty Winona Ryder movie, nobody can take that from you. The movie has been made. And if the kids wanna remake it, let them. Ignore it like an adult or give it a shot. Maybe some actress you've never heard of could out whine-y Winona and you'll fall in love.

Also, if someone could remake Pretty In Pink with a redhead not named Molly Ringwald that would be dandy. Oh, and Star Wars Episodes 1-3.

Titty sprinkles!


Postscript, you cannot be considered a great 80s movie if your soundtrack is shit.
