FURTHERMORE (not that this “furthermore” follows anything, but it needed saying), Hollywood has run out of ideas. While waiting for Hitchhiker to start, Heewa and I saw previews for the following:
- Herbie: Fully Loaded, a Herbie re-make.
- Zathura, a Jumanji rip-off (from the writers of Jumanji!)
- Dark Water, a Ring rip-off (from the writer of The Ring!)
- Star Wars: Episode III (from the writer of Star Wars: The Rest of Them!)
I figure they completely ran out of ideas about two years ago.
