Let’s start with the obvious. I’ve been away from this channel for quite some time, and yeah, I miss it. I thought that in order to be more productive in my writing career, I had to focus on the projects that could lead to paid gigs, like my screenplays. But then, I’d get home after a long day, and I’d do nothing, or waste time. The point is, I wasn’t writing.
When I wrote new blog posts in the past, it utilized a different part of the brain, but at the end of the day, I used my brain. The constant stream of output allowed the narrative functions to relax, and the analytical processes to ignite. I loved the feeling of being productive in multiple facets. If I was able to paint something (that I didn’t hate), I’d do that more, but even if I painted something God awful now, it would serve the same purpose as a blog. It’s an expression of the mind through other channels and that’s freeing. I miss that.

In the past fifteen years or so, we’ve seen a groundswell of projects retool old films or television shows in order to make an entirely “new” product.
Now with the recent news of the all-female Ghostbusters remake, and the reboot of the Terminator timeline in Terminator Genisys [(sp?)], I figured it was time to discuss how remakes are not a new concept, how some remakes can even be better than the original, and how important remakes are in Hollywood.
What many of you may not know is that the act of a remake is nothing new. Movies have been remade almost since they’ve existed. In the past, movies were remade years after the original.
