An Original Though - please?
The Hollywood Rumor mill has it that yet another delightfully cheesy 80s blockbuster is scheduled for a remake - Dirty Dancing may join the ranks of Footloose, the Breakfast Club and other alleged remakes.
This message is just for you Hollywood - Stop it! Just, Stop it!
There are so many reasons not to do this - you are stepping on the toes of a cinematic icon, these movies are not that old yet, and they were made for a different generation in a different world.
Finally - there are so many talented, fresh new voices out there. How about giving them some money and a greenlight to make some new cult classics and leave mine alone?
