Trailer: Point Break

Trailer: Point Break

Producers Meeting somewhere in Los Angeles on a Friday night. One year ago….

Producer 1: Do you like the airplane scene in Dark Knight Rises?
Producer 2: Hell yeah, bro! (takes a snort of white powder on the table).
Producer 1: Do you like the scene in Dark Knight where the Joker…(pauses to take shot)…burns all the money from those gangsters?
Producer 2: That was so sick!
Producer 1: Picture this, dude. Three guys throw money out of a high altitude plane and fly out…Robin Hood style!
Producer 2: You had me at Dark Knight. Those films were so artsy.
End scene

As a manchild pushing 40, I grew up in the heyday of amazing 80’s/90’s action films. The original Point Break was one of them. This was one of the last of its kind. Over the top action, catchy lines, memorable actors, and bromance. Sweet bromance. You believed that Keanu and Swayze had become friends and that Keanu had possibly gone native when he let Swayze go. I even loved when Edgar Wright paid homage to it in Hot Fuzz.
So, I was intrigued to watch the trailer for this “remake”.
Nope. Just Nope.
I’m not going to bore you with an explanation as to why Hollywood is too scared to take a gamble (John Carter) and make original movies (The Raid) instead of rehashing old properties (Jurassic Park) and bastardizing old franchises (Terminator). Or even make a sequel to a great/ under performing movie (Dredd).
They just want to make money. Plain and simple.
Look even closer and you can tell their true motives. Create a new franchise ala The Fast and The Furious that has action, extreme sports, crazy car chases, low cost dude-bros, and some titty. But did these guys do the research? I think not. Even better idea…bury it at Christmas. No one is going to put out good movies at Christmas (JJ Abrams).
When released in 1991, the o.g. P.B. was made for $24 million and had a domestic box office gross of $84 million. Not bad in early nineties cinema but, sure as hell not Terminator 2 numbers. There was never any serious talk of a sequel. Over the years, it has garnered cult status among action film lovers (see Edgar Wright). Ask the average person under 30 about Point Break and you will get “Wasn’t Neo in that?”.
Remember that god awful Total Recall remake from a couple of years ago?
Neither does anyone else.
Neither does anyone else.

    The Zune concentrates upon getting a Moveable Media Player. Not a website browser. Not a recreation machine. Maybe in just the foreseeable future it’ll do even much better in those areas, nonetheless for at present it truly is a very good route in the direction of prepare and listen in direction of your audio and videos, and is without the need of peer within that respect. The iPod’s benefits are its world wide web checking out and programs. If those strong further powerful, perhaps it is your least difficult alternative.
