So you know how MTV is remaking The Rocky Horror Picture Show, and how that's universally regarded as a horrible idea? Well, not everyone is content to sit idly by and let the cult classic become known to a new generation as "that thing where Zac Efron was in drag" (I assume Zac Efron would be involved). Some people are ready to take a stand, and in the laziest way possible: an internet petition. From Stoptheremake.com:
Was anyone asking for this?! I mean the original is no cinematic masterpeice but it has retained a sort of dirty do-it-yourself charm. There are no great special effects, there are cheesy sets and a cheesier script. But thats its charm.
And worse yet. They say in this new imagining there will be new songs. Jesus Fucking Christ!!! This abortion will be worse than the usual shit they pour down on our throats.
Oh and The Day The Earth Stood Still remake isn't going to be any better. Not for all the effects in the world or Keanu Reeves playing a robot again. See The Matrix. See Constantine. Really Hollywood stop letting him act please.
Blind rage, irrelevant points, broad insults, an inexplicable attack on Keanu Reeves--even if this petition doesn't work (it probably won't work), at least MTV will know it definitely came from the internet.
Sign the petition here. (Thanks, Jen.)
