A "Yellow Submarine" Remake???? Oy Vay...

So, I hear-tell that there is a remake of Yellow Submarine in the works... As you might imagine, I'm not pleased. It just speaks to the fact that Hollywood is lost when it comes to generating new ideas for movies. So, why not just bastardize a classic Beatles movie, right? 'Cause we all know just how excellent Robert Stigwood's "Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band" was, right?

It's a phenomenon I've never understood ("Hey, I've got an idea! Let's remake a movie that was never meant to be remade! Let's embarrass the hell out of the actors involved! Let's insult the original screenwriter! And, lest we forget, let's waste people's money, time and patience!"

More later...
