For some reason, my vhs recording of Sound of Music abruptly switched to a special on pandas during the wedding scene. If this remake doesn't do that, it loses about 70% of the reason I enjoyed Sound of Music.

The right answer to the wrong question is still the wrong answer to the real question.

Sorry, that has nothing to do with my reasons for hating that movie. I hate over 95% of the musicals I've ever seen. Singing and dancing make some people happy, but they just make me hate everything. There have been plenty of movies that I've enjoyed that don't have tits or explosions or blood, but Sound of Music isn't one of them.

It's one of the movies I grew up with and really got me into music. That and the Music Man (they did the samething, a remake).

Nice try. Other than Skyfall, I couldn't name you the last 5 movies I've seen.

Meh. I like remakes, in a philosophical sense. I'm not going to judge this one until it comes out.

I'm not sure Carrie Underwood does it for me, but she must be better than Julie Andrews.

Are they this desperate to find ideas or do they just figure there's a lot of money to be squuezed out of this? If they were running out of ideas I'd forgive holloywood for their crappy remakes of various successful movies, but I just think the greedy bastards think there's money in this and doesn't care if they taint the legacy in order to roll in some more dough.
