If there's a useless thread in here, chances are excellent that JJ created it.

Of course I wouldn't count Father of the Bride, Ocean's 11 and Planet of the Apes as 'sequels', and Harry Potter 8 is actually Harry Potter 7.5. Likewise, is Hook really an adaptation? (yes I know I'm being pedantic).

I think sequels and remakes were being put in the same category.

And when did people have a problem with adaptions? Some of the best films of all time have been adaptations (A Clockwork Orange, Jaws, The Shining, just to name a few).

There are plenty of bad ones too. Over the last 15 years of so, there's been that trend of taking any old popular TV show and trying to wring a few more bucks out of it via the box office... Scooby-Doo, The Flintstones, Lost in Space, Charlie's Angels are some examples.

Some of you know I'm a Rocky Horror fan from way way back (and even wrote 2 college term papers on it). I knew that Tim Curry had had a major stroke some time back, but had heard his rehab was going well and he was being seen out in public again. This clip, though, shows just how bad it must have been if this is a significant improvement. I hope he continues to recover.
(also, when did Barry Bostwick get so hot? Barry, call me!)
