Reboots there’s been a lot of them, right? Spider-Man has been rebooted 3 times in fifteen years each one an improvement. On the other hand, we had Fantastic Four which wasn’t terrible, it was good enough to get a sequel that was just awful. It was rebooted into the worst film of 2015 it was a failure on several fronts. It would be a stretch to even call it watchable. With the Power Rangers reboot coming our way there are a few movies. I think should have a proper facelift.
Tank Girl you’re up first! A British comic book that started in 1988 about a post-apocalyptic world where water is so rare is used as currency there's a heroine named Rebecca who becomes a fighter against the evil corporation holding the world’s water for power and she drives a crazy looking tank. It was adapted for film in 1995. It was a disaster only grossing a little over five million with a budget of 25 million. Now that we are living in a time where female comic book characters need to come in all shapes and sizes I feel like this would be a great addition to the times. Plus, with the comics vulgarity and violence, we could be looking at a female response to Deadpool. I’m not sure but director George Miller could do. Actress wise this is gonna sound weird or at least it does to me but it’s between Miley Cyrus, Yolandi from Die Antwood (Chappie) or Kate McKinnon (SNL).
Second Robocop. I know they did that already. But did they? That was something but it was not Robocop. I’m not sure what that was. But it was not a Sci-Fi action. It was a political drama with action. What the hell was Samuel Jackson wearing on his head! If you really think about it every movie post Pulp Fiction if he has a hairpiece the movie is odd and hard to watch Formula 51, Jumper, The Man, Robocop. I think they need to start back to the basics just update the material. Bring back the weird commercials that are so close to being accurate it’s scary, practical effects (mainly blood splatters) bring that back keep it rated R don’t water it down. I have no idea for actors but I would have Tim Miller direct.
This will be part of a series of blogs I will drop throughout the year so if you have an idea for a reboot drop us a line.
