5 Reasons Sony Doesn't Need To Remake 'The Craft'
Huffington Post - almost 2 years
In completely unnecessary remake news, Sony is remaking the 1996 cult-classic "The Craft." The original movie starred Robin Tunney, Fairuza Balk, Neve Campbell and Rachel True as a group of misfit teens who practice witchcraft for personal gain, before everything ultimately spirals out of control. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the studio has tapped filmmaker Leigh Janiak to write and direct the film, which really has no reason to be remade for the following reasons: 1. The film was the pinnacle of '90's fashion. The clothes are half of the reason to watch the "The Craft" in the first place. 2. It's a perfect primer for the timeless sleepover game Light As Feather, Stiff As A Board. What? You never tried it? 3. High school bullies haven't changed in the last 19 years. Technology may be different, but being mean is a constant. 4. This: 5. Fairuza Balk as Nancy. Seriously, who are they going to cast in the remake? Selena Gomez? ...

Annette Bourdeau: 'Anna Karenina' And Other Old-Timey Love Affairs
Huffington Post - about 4 years
Don't you just love movies about steamy love affairs? Period pieces that chronicle sexy liaisons are the best, with all of those amazingly elaborate costumes in the mix. So many layers of fancy gowns, corsets and billowy undergarments to wade through in the heat of the moment! I had high hopes for Anna Karenina, the ambitious new film adaptation of Tolstoy's classic tale of a married high society Russian woman (Keira Knightley) who falls in love with a dapper young cavalry officer named Vronsky (Aaron Taylor-Johnson of Savages and Kick-Ass). Unfortunately, the affair leaves much to be desired. It moves at such a painfully slow pace, it's hard to believe it was instigated by an irresistible passion. It's easy enough to understand why Anna would be bored with her incredibly dull husband, played to perfection by a dowdy Jude Law. But it's not entirely clear why she would be compelled to throw her life away for the charming young Vronsky who follows her around like a puppy ...
