Hollywood's run out of ideas, so they're slowly but surely remaking all our old favorite movies and TV shows. I doubt the big boys in Lalaland are taking requests, but just in case, here's what I want to see on the small screen and the big screen. No more Chipmunks movies, please.
Just … just for some real closure, you know? I mean, I know it's a fairly recent show, but I think fans deserve it. A TV movie, something.
Series like “American Horror Story” where every season is different are increasingly popular. A show like “The Twilight Zone” is ideal, plus you can only imagine the types of stories a skilled team of writers could concoct.
OF COURSE, FIREFLY.
This is probably just me. Is this just me? I don't care. No one will ever understand how desperately I need to see Charles Foster Offdensen again.
HBO's “Looking” almost filled the gap, but not quite. Sadly, there's probably no hope for a reboot with Gale Harold and there's definitely no use wishing for an updated version featuring Charlie Hunnam, but see, that leaves the door open for a whole host of talented gay actors and actresses to pick up the reins in Pittsburgh.
I watched this on Nick-at-Nite as a preteen when I hardly understood the political pretext, and I still loved Murphy. I think a reboot is practically a necessity for today.
Don't call me a blasphemer, I have a point. I would love to see an updated version of this classic with, oh, I don't know. A little diversity couldn't hurt.
This might also just be me. And, admittedly, I'm crotchety and would only want a reboot with most of the original cast.
Sure, it would never be with the same cast, but the premise was so sharp and funny and relatable – even if you're watching as a dorky, awkward adult who used to be a dorky, awkward teen.
Premise: Buffy has a daughter or son, who is also a vampire slayer? Maybe part vampire, even? I don't know, but it needs to be done.
WHY WAS THIS EVEN CANCELED?
Again, WHY WAS THIS EVEN CANCELED? Okay, yes, there was also the movie, but no. I want a series. I demand it.
This goes without saying, don't you think? This was just the best show, and there are seventy-seven thousand ways to make it relevant.
I want to see all of these characters on my screen again. Especially Urkel because Jaleel White is a beautiful man.
This would have to be a top-to-bottom reboot, yeah, but the world needs a 2016 version.
This could be the best TV show in the world.
The world needs Daria. Daria needs to come back.
I know, I know, it's a classic and it's perfect the way it is, but wouldn't you kind of love to see it modernized? It still resonates with teens, but I think that in the right hands with the right actors, a really well-done remake couldn't hurt.
Oh, I would love to see this get the reboot treatment. For 2016 and beyond, they could do so much with the storytelling and casting.
I know, I know, it's another classic, but if the Chipmunks aren't sacred, nothing is. I love the original – not so much the sequels, but definitely the original. Whether they made another sequel, a prequel, or a total remake, I just think today's FX could make this a really epic film.
Same. Except I always feel a twinge when anyone wants to remake a Tim Curry movie. Because I luuuurrrrvvvve him.
Don't get me wrong, the original is everything. But if we have to be on this 'let's remake everything' train, let's at least make movies that have imagination and creativity in the first place.
I'll say it. I'd like to see Top Gun with girls. Or, failing that, I'd love for someone to play up the homoeroticism in the original.
Except this time? Let's make it fall more in line with Stephen King's actual story, why don't we? After all, the dystopian future predicted in the book looks a little closer every day.
Don't shoot me! It's not like I said anyone should remake Labyrinth or anything (Author's Note: so ... just heard they're rebooting Labyrinth and I think that is bull crap). Think of what today's makeup artists and special effects teams could do with Legend, though. Man, oh man.
Agree, disagree, have choices of your own? Hit me with it!
