For #$!%’s sake, Hollywood! You’re contemplating a Smurfs movie! So why can’t you remake something that deserves it, like for instance Phantom of the Paradise? Check out this trailer! Swap out Glam-Rock for Screamo-Crunk. Swap Paul Williams for The Neptune Bros. and it’s a certified hit! Hell, it’s not like Brian De Palma is all that busy nowadays. Let him re-imagine his own masterpiece.
A tip of the cap to our pal Truly (whose sea legs measure long and firm), for reminding me of this rocktastic gem.
