Did I already mention that 2006 is going to be the “Year of the Remakes, Prequels & Sequels”? No? Well, now I did.
The latest addition to the ever growing list of RP&S is “Pink Panther” where Steve Martin plays Inspector Clouseau and Kevin Kline stars as Chief Inspector Dreyfus. Now, Steve Martin is good but he is no Peter Sellers and he sucks at doing a French accent. Look at the trailer and tell me you do not wince in agony. This movie will blow (Joblo agrees, too, but I don’t even need to see a screening to know that, the trailer is enough).
Being a huge Peter Sellers fan, I enjoyed the original Pink Panther movies and I highly doubt this one will come even close to its predecessors. I even go so far as to say it is a complete and utter disgrace and not worth the celluloid it’s printed on! My advice? Watch the original! There’s a nice Pink Panther DVD box available for all your PP needs.
RP&S List 2006:
Predator 3, Ghostbusters, The Wild Bunch, RoboCop, Rocky 6, Rambo 4, He Man, X-Men 3, Superman Returns, Spiderman 3, Underworld Evolution, The Punisher 2, Ice Age 2, …
OK, I best calm myself now with a proper dose of random Chuck Norris facts.
