Clue is one of my favorite movies.  It’s among the first movies I remember watching as a kid, so it’s really nostalgic for me as well.  I could watch it a million times.

If you haven’t watched it, you should.  It’s a beautifully done film with a stellar cast and it has no less than three different endings!  When it was originally sent to the theaters, it was only given one of the endings, and that ending depended on which theater you went to.  Some got the first, second, or third ending.  The DVD has an option where you can play it with on of the three random endings OR with the VHS ending, which has all three.  And to be honest, if you haven’t seen it, you still will recognize some of the music and themes played at the end.

There is some news about other board game franchises be3ing made into movies, and frankly they have high marks.  It isn’t too much of a stretch to take a murder mystery board game and turn it into a murder mystery movie- especially since the board game contains so little basic plot that they can basically do anything with it.  The colorful names turn into aliases, given to protect them from each other.  The weapons turn out to be gifts from the mysterious Mr. Boddy.  And, as with the board game, there is more than one way it can end.

Boardgames I am fairly certain I remember correctly that they’re going to remake: Monopoly, Battleship, and I think they’re making a Ouija board movie.

Monopoly: I don’t know how they’re going to make this interesting, to be honest.  Maybe a rags to riches type story?

Battleship: This could be a really interesting movie about stragety during X war, or it could be a really uninteresting movie with lots of explosions.  Honestly, I’m betting on the latter.

Ouija: Probably the only movie of the group that’s going to be all that interesting, and I’ll bet it’s more based around the board than on the plot of the game.  But this is the only one that I am looking forward to.

THEY’RE GOING TO REMAKE CLUE WHAT THE FUCK WHAT THE FUCK WHYYYYYY

*deep breath*

Reading the brief synopsis, I don’t think they’re actually remaking the movie, I think they’re making another movie based on the same franchise.

“”Clue” will be turned into a mystery that Blind Wink senior veep Jonathan Krauss called “A global thriller and transmedia event that uses deductive reasoning as its storytelling engine.””

That doesn’t sound like my Clue.  But still, what’s wrong with remastering the original version and doing another theater release?  I’d go to the theater to watch that, I’d watch the hell out of that!  Cast interviews, special features, new whooptie DVD!  I understand wanting to make money off a franchise, but why can’t they just re-release the movie?  They’d make money off of that with really very minimal input.

*ahem*

Uh, so, if you haven’t seen Clue yet (@riathepinkie, I mean YOU) then you should get on that.
