just a thought about book-to-film remakes...

one of my film-nerd friends shared a link on facebook about bret easton-ellis' 'american psycho' being re-made & set in modern times. it got me thinking about other "re-makes", like the upcoming 'the girl with the dragon tattoo' version made by david fincher. a quick google search showed that there's quite a number of them coming out. seems like there's a whole lotta movie-nerd outrage out there about these stories being turned into a 2nd [maybe even 3rd or more] movies. but why?! i understand & sometimes am myself outraged by a movie being re-made, or books turned into films, but a re-make of a book seems silly to get in a hizzy fit over. the first film version of a piece of literature is just that, the first. why can't others take a crack at re-interpreting that piece of literature? was there much hate when 'fear and loathing in las vegas' [the 1st version being 'where the buffalo roam'] was being filmed? i'm sure there are plenty more examples, but my knowledge of movies is pretty bad. if anyone reading this totally disagrees with me, please let me know in the comments. would love to read what others think about this hot-button topic.

i fucking love this spoof by team coco.
i still don't understand why sooooo many people are attracted to ron paul as a potential leader of the united states.
