Thursday Movie Picks is hosted by Wandering Through the Shelves. This week’s theme is about remakes/reboots/sequels. Hollywood hasn’t shied away from rebooting, remaking, or adding sequels to popular movies so it’s no longer a surprise when an existing property is getting a glitzy upgrade. I went with one pick for each (remake, sequel, reboot) and listed accordingly.
To Kill a Mockingbird – This is a beloved movie, with Gregory Peck playing an iconic character in literature. I wouldn’t mind seeing a remake of this classic, if they decide to touch on the book again.
National Treasure 2 – This installment was bad, but I like these kinds of treasure hunt movies. This also left things on a cliffhanger, with the president asking Nicolas Cage’s character to check a page on this book hidden in the Library of Congress. So yes, I want a third movie.
The Neverending Story – I think this is a simple story, but could be improved on by better graphics.
