Tim Burton heartz remakes

Where creativity doesn’t exist right now… is in Hollywood. Remakes are at their height as digital technology is lending itself to newer possibilities that ‘enhance’ their re-story telling quality. As everyone knows Disney has acquired filmmaker Tim Burton to remake their classic Alice in Wonderland, which I absolutely hated (it was a stupid 3D cash cow), but recently he’s been hired to remake another classic… Sleeping Beauty. Sleeping Beauty is my favorite Disney movie… to see this animated film cheaply re-made as to simply drag in $100 million or so in for Disney would be an absolute shame and a slap in the face for the classic. However, what is interesting is that it’s going to be more focused on the life and evil doings of Maleficent, not the pure and beautiful Princess Aurora.

I appreciate what Tim Burton is doing, but I don’t really care for his films, he’s aesthetic is almost a character of it’s own that absorbs the spotlight from any actor or actress starring in his film, as it’s mostly what I pay attention to throughout the film. So far, all I know is that Angelina Jolie is supposed to star as the evil Maleficent, which could possibly be good, but I’m not going to hold my breath. And how much do you want to bet that Johnny Depp will be playing Princess Aurora?
