A friend of mine says there ...

Question: A friend of mine says there are two remakes of The Poseidon Adventure (1972) in the works, one for theaters and one for TV. How can that be? It's not like Titanic, where the source is a historical event anybody could draw on. If my friend is right, what gives?


Answer: Your friend is right: A four-hour miniseries version of The Poseidon Adventure is scheduled to air on NBC in November 2005, and Warner Bros. has a theatrical remake called Poseidon due out in 2006. Because neither project is finished, I don't have access to contractual credits, but my guess as to how it happened is that the theatrical version is a remake of the first film and the TV version is an adaptation of the original novel by Paul Gallico. The why is another matter; I can't even begin to say. In any event, the $150 million thea read more

Sheppard, McKay, Teyla and Ronon...

Sheppard, McKay, Teyla and Ronon crash-landed ("Shot down by the cast of Braveheart," griped Rodney) in an Alcatrazlike prison located on an island that is a de facto feeding ground for the Wraith. In fact, the whole reason the Wraith left the remainder of Elysia (I'm guessing at the spelling) alone is because the porky, amoral magistrate cut a deal with a hammy Wraith rep who sips blood-colored wine with the phony decadence of somebody who has gorged himself on Anne Rice's oeuvre. Add Donald Pleasance's severed finger, and the plot would have been a complete recycle of Escape from New York (which, incidentally, starred Kurt Russell, the Jack O'Neill of the original silver-screen Stargate, a film that also featured James Spader, who was in Crash with Holly Hunter, whom I saw present a 1996 Golden Globe alongside… wait for it… Kevin Bacon). Not that I'd put severing body parts past Torrell and his thugs. They did read more
