So, I’ve finally been watching movies again. And since I’m not the type to do things half-heartedly, I actually watched 5 in a day, or to be precise, one 90-minute television pilot and 4 movies. The day was an initiative of my friend Joost, and well… it ruled.
The theme? Previous incarnations of recent movies
- Miami Vice (the pilot) – 1984
- Rocky IV – 1985
- Transformers: the Movie (the animated version) – 1986
- The Punisher (the Dolph Lundgren version) – 1989
- Beowulf (the Christopher Lambert version) – 1999
As you can tell, quality wasn’t the primary selection criterion (though in a way, it was). But that doesn’t mean we didn’t have tons of fun.
