HER UGLY FRIEND: Karate Kid to be remade = Please stop remaking stuff.

Tuesday, July 14th, 2009

AP article:

BEIJING — Jackie Chan will play the wise kung-fu master in a Hollywood-Chinese remake of the 1984 hit “The Karate Kid” that kicked off filming in the Chinese capital at the weekend, a movie company publicist said Monday.
Chan’s young disciple in “Kung Fu Kid” will be played by Jaden Smith, the son of Hollywood superstars Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith, China Film Group spokesman Weng Li told The Associated Press in a phone interview.

This sounds terrible.

HER UGLY FRIEND: LiLo’s Master Plan

LiLo

Lohan at some random GQ something.

Ohhhh my. Lindsay Lohan wants a production company. And whatever LiLo wants, LiLo gets (do you see what I did there? LiLo / Lola? ha). Now, there’s ALLLL those wonderful people out there that want to say to me, “Hey – you never know. Don’t knock Lindsay because you don’t know her and blah blah blah…” So to be fair, this is what I would say to her:

Lindsay – I think that most of the world would be grateful if you would please, PLEASE complete a stint at rehab and straighten out your shit before you vomit out any more crap into the media. I don’t know you, but I do know the crap that you vomit out into the media and I don’t like it, not one bit. I believe that deep, deep, deep down inside you are smarter than this and that down the road, after years of sobriety and therapy you could totally pull this off. But not now. Please.

Happy now? According to The Hollywood Reporter, Lohan and her business partner, Kristi Kaylor, are planning a TV show titled Faux Real (seriously!?) and a “game show involving dating.” This whole thing reeks of Her-Ugly-Friendness since we wouldn’t touch anything that came out of this partnership with a 10-foot pole. The name of the whole scheme? Unforgettable Prods. Yes, I do believe it will be unforgettable Lindsay, faux real.

HER UGLY FRIEND: Paper Heart

Charlyne Yi and a heart made out of fingers. Not enticing. At all.

I thought I might be missing something. After all, this blog is about finding reasons, any reason, to watch movies. But the more I dig into this, the more I realize – no, it’s going to be horrible. There are some flicks you KNOW are going to be horrible but you watch anyway for various reasons (Gigli for example, just to see how horrible it really was), but there is absolutely nothing that will get me to watch Paper Heart. This faux-documentary earns the first post dubbed “Her Ugly Friend.” No way. In hell. Ever.

Michael Cera and Charlyne Yi play with dolls. Nope, that doesn’t do it for me either.

I know, I know, the adorable geek we can’t help to love, Michael Cera, takes second billing. Isn’t that enough? But no, because he takes second to the painful-to-watch Charlyne Yi. Huzzah for Yi – climbing through the stand-up comedy ranks, finally making it. But seriously, the nervous giggles and barely-discernable monologues get really old, really quickly. This is the downfall of Paper Heart. I couldn’t even make it through the trailer, no less one hour plus.
