Film news Buffy The Vampire Slayer getting reboot treatment | TotalFilm.com - 2 views

      I agree with Joss, this is a sad idea!
  • Vampires are still all the rage - in no small part thanks to the craze-making Twilight movies - and Hollywood isn’t showing any signs of letting up on the bloodsuckers.

    Even sacred properties like Buffy The Vampire Slayer aren’t safe, with the iconic stake-wielder officially being prepped for a reboot treatment courtesy of Warner Bros.

    We already heard early last year that a redo of the franchise was in the offing, but now Whit Anderson, who is writing the new Buffy film, has spoken out about her vision for the make-over.

    “The thing that was so wonderful about Buffy is what made it special was so timeless," she says. "The deep struggle she had with duty and destiny, that tug between what you’re supposed to be doing and what you want to be doing.

    “The fate of the world is on her shoulders but some days she wakes up and she just doesn’t want to do it. And are we doomed and destined to love someone?  That conflict was very interesting to me.”
  • “This is a sad, sad reflection on our times," says Whedon, "when people must feed off the carcasses of beloved stories from their youths - just because they can’t think of an original idea of their own, like I did with my Avengers idea that I made up myself.”

    THE DEATH OF NEO CONSERVATISM, THOUGHTS ON RUSH LIMBAUGH, AND THE REAL REASON FOR ALL OF THE RECENT BLUSTER-THE UPCOMING FIGHT OVER PRESIDENT OBAMA'S BUDGET



    On Saturday, February 28, 2009, Mr. Rush Limbaugh gave a speech to the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC). He has been called the voice of the Republican Party and the heart of the conservative movement, and in my mind he is the apparent savior of the Neoconservative movement that dominated politics in the last 8 years, holding Ronald Regan as a sacred cow.

    The focus of Mr. Limbaugh's speech was for Conservatives to take back the Republican Party and the Nation. Punctuating by jumping up and down, chest thumping, fist pumping, and heart slamming, his talk was about staying the conservative course in the Republican Party and being proud of Obstructionism and non-bipartisan politics. The tone of the speech has been called "mocking, bulling, full of contempt, harsh, unapologetic", and in some instances eerily "sinister." As is his tendency, there was very little substance, and there was a lot more playing to the crowd, attempting to energize the group. Unfortunately, he had very little substantially to say and his angry, insulting, rude and unapologetic message, considering the mess the Bush Administration and the Neocons left the American People with, was in appropriate.
    "We conservatives have not done a good enough job of just laying out basically who we are because we make the mistake of assuming that people know. What they know is largely incorrect, based on the way we're portrayed in pop culture, in the drive-by media, by the Democrat party," the neoconservative talk show host told a mostly-young crowd of energized supporters.
    His basic premise in his speech based on some basic tenants of conservative philosophy, sprinkled with a combative, begrudging tone about the recent political losses the movement had suffered as a result of the Presidential election,
