I whip my hair back and forth, because it’s a hard knock life? More like shaking my head at Hollywood’s laziness trend in rehashing old plots, verses putting work into creating brand new ones. These days I’d just as well take a prequel or another sequel over another reboot, because remakes are sending my beloved cinema to an early grave.
Does a spoonful of bankable star power make the remake go down? You tell me. Will Smith wants us to think so as he goes out on a very short limb, to bring forth a Jay-Z musically composed, Emma Thompson written, retooling of “Annie’. Right on the heels of the orphan Annie 30th DVD anniversary.
