This is one of the few remakes/adaptations on the list that feels completely pointless. The 1990 film is almost perfect and I love it, even if the scene where Anjelica Huston and the rest of the witches turn into a bunch of hideous rats scarred me for life as a child.

There is no way they'll make it anywhere near as terrifying as the 1990 version.

Between the two of them, Arrival and Interstellar are kind of remakes of Contact. One does the wormhole and time dilation stuff (and McConaughey), one does the communicating with aliens and dead relative stuff.

Which was the one where Matthew McConaughey is on a water planet with a big metal box that can walk like it has legs?

It's incredibly depressing from a comedic standpoint that one of the loving Pythons decided to retreat to the "I should just declare myself a different race/gender/sexuality right here and now so I'm suddenly a victim" poo poo that was old and tired years ago.

That's right, there was a brand new season of Mad About You that came out a couple of months ago, exclusively streaming on Spectrum!

I saw an ad for this pass by on the Roku screensaver and it surprised the poo poo out of me. Mad About You was incredibly popular when it was on and won a bunch of Emmys, yet this came out back in November and it was literally the first time I had heard about it.

The whole reason Rick Moranis basically retired is because his wife died of cancer and he decided to focus on raising their children. This is particularly ghoulish.

Exactly, and that his kids haven't seen him in years because he drove himself crazy trying to cure it.

"loving" Cesar Romero? As if he isn't an awesome Joker and perhaps the most comic accurate take on him yet? Moustache aside, that is.

I think the idea isn't that Romero sucked, but that it's weird to outright 100% exclude the guy who had the role like 4 years ago, and also pull the guy who had it on TV before most of us were born

Exactly what I was getting at, Mister BOOTY.

And the compilations do usually include Hamill. They go Cesar Romero, Jack Nicholson, Mark Hamill, Heath Ledger, and Joaquin Phoenix, skipping right the gently caress over Jared Leto.
