Top 5 Movies That SHOULD Be Remade

There are no more original ideas in Hollywood anymore. So the studios decide to dust off some older movies, and give them an updated version of the movie. And people like myself just get frustrated. However, sometimes there are movies in history that were good ideas and were good for the time, but are in desperate need of a remake. If some movies from the 80's got a 2012 update, I think they would be awesome!

So here are what I think are the Top 5 movies that SHOULD be remade.

1). Robocop - This is a cool idea for a movie. Regular cop gets beaten within a inch of his life and gets a robot makeover. Pretty cool if you ask me. I even had the action figure. But if you watch this movie today, you almost have to look away because of the graphics and poor acting by Peter Weller. If you put some high quality actors in the movie and give it some of today's technology in it, this movie would be bad ass!

2). Spies Like Us - This movie is hilarious! Dan Aykroyd and Chevy Chase are an awesome comedy duo. The only thing wrong with movie is that no one knows about this movie. It flies right under the radar with some people today. I say, "ya know whats a funny movie?......Spies Like Us". And people are like....."what movie?". Which is just sad because this movie is so freakin funny. So if you remake this movie and put a couple of current SNL guys in it. Guys like Andy Samberg and Bill Hader. Or maybe Seth Rogen and Jason Segal. If you give it an update.....oh man, that would be awesome.

3). Revenge of the Nerds - I love this movie. But watching it today, I just feel that it needs to be redone. But maybe not go all out Nerd. Get rid of the pocket protectors, and high pants, and the glasses and put in some wimpy kids who can't get girls and like comic books. Like put in the cast of The Big Bang Theory and the kid who played McLovin in Superbad (Christopher Mintz-Plasse), make it Rated R and you got one hilarious movie.

4). Running Man - The idea has been done. Several different ways. A guy on Death Row has to compete in some sort of game to the death, and if he wins.....he gets his freedom. So just redo the exact same movie but give it an update. Put some bad ass assassins in the movie instead of some lame old guys with neon lights and stupid outfits. Put a decent action star in the movie, and that would be a movie that I would watch.

5). The Neverending Story - I watched this movie a hundred times as a kid. And it's still fun to watch today. The main reason that this movie needs a remake is graphics. 80's graphics are hard to look at now-a-days. And this one has a lot of them. With some 3D graphics and some big name kid actors in the roles and you got yourself a fun movie!

Honorable Mentions - The Breakfast Club - Some Kind of Wonderful - Bloodsport

So there they are. The Top 5 movies that SHOULD be remade. I hope that some of these movies actually get remade. That would be awesome. Yes Indeed.

Top 5 Worst Actors and Actresses

This entry has been long overdue. There are just some actors and actresses out there who can't really hack it. Are they good looking? Sure. Are they in a bunch of movies and make millions? You bet. But they are just not good at acting. So they are not free from my list. So here are who I think are the worst actors and actresses in movies. (with some honorable mentions)

1). Paul Walker - I can't stand watching this guy. He just can't act, and he keeps showing up in these action movies that require a little bit of acting ability that he just doesn't have. It makes sense that his last name is Walker because every time he is on screen, that's what i become...."A Walker" away from his movies.

Worst Performance: The Fast and the Furious

2). Jessica Alba - Is she beautiful? Without a doubt. Is she super sexy? Yes indeed. But can she act? Nope. Just watch Machete. Funny movie and I love Robert Rodriguez movies, but she was just hard to watch.

Worst Performance: Machete

3). Dane Cook - Is he funny? Extremely. I saw him in concert. He's hysterical. But he needs to just do that. He can't act. He just can't. Dane Cook....just stick to stand up comedy.

Worst Performance: Dan In Real Life

4). Megan Fox - Just like Jessica Alba. Is she incredibly sexy? Unbelievably sexy, but she can't act. Her looks will continue to put her in movies and that's fine. It's probably the only reason she was in Transformers 2. She was not missed in Transformers 3.

Worst Performance: Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen

5). Channing Tatum - Some of his line deliveries are just awkward. And there was a ton in G.I. Joe. He's just not that good. He's in some upcoming comedies so we'll see if does any better in those.

Worst Performance: G.I Joe

Honorable Mentions - Ashton Kutcher - Miley Cyrus - Paris Hilton - Jessica Simpson

So that's my list. These people just can't hack it. Yes Indeed.

The Yes Indeed Papers Salute...

Jennifer Aniston

Jennifer Aniston definetley deserves this salute. I read and hear alot about how bad an actress she is but I disagree. I think she's a really good actress and deserves way more credit. She's funny, exrtremely sexy, and can do a little bit of drama as well. But it was her role in Horrible Bosses that made her my November pick for the underappreciated actor. She was awesome in that movie, she's awesome in most movies. Here are some of her more memorable movies.

  • Friends

  • Picture Perfect

  • Office Space

  • Bruce Almighty

  • Along Came Polly

  • The Good Girl

  • The Break Up

  • Marley and Me

  • He's Just Not That Into You

  • The Bounty Hunter

  • The Switch

  • Just Go With It

  • Horrible Bosses

Coming soon, Aniston stars in Wanderlust with Paul Rudd, and it looks pretty hilarious. Jennifer Aniston is a really good actress who doesn't get enough credit. I mean, she's Rachael Green for crying out loud. So from all of us here at The Yes Indeed Papers, (and by all of us, I mean just me) Jennifer Aniston, we salute you......Yes Indeed!

Horrible Bosses

So I wrote a blog a little while back about movies aren't Rated R anymore and I think it reached some people because I recently watched Horrible Bosses and it was that Rated R hilarious comedy that hasn't been seen in quite some time.

I was expecting a funny movie but I what I watched was a raunchy, gut-busting comedy filled with bad language an awesome cast. Jason Bateman, Jason Sudeikis and Charlie Day star as 3 guys who hate their bosses. Bateman's boss, played by Kevin Spacey, is a a cruel, mean, nasty company president who feels that is his mission in life to make Bateman's life a living hell. And he does. Spacey is awesome as the main villain in this movie and he gives the movie that a**hole that it needs. He plays the part with just enough sleaziness and comedy that is awesome.

Colin Farrell plays the boss of Sudeikis and is a coke addicted son of a boss who takes over the company when his dad dies suddenly. And all Farrell wants to do is get as much money as he can out of the company to live fat. Farrell makes a surprising turn as an overweight, balding jackass who brings the perfect amount of douchebaggery that the role needed. The character needed to be played as a giant tool and boy did he deliver.

Jennifer Aniston plays Charlie Day's boss, a dentist who is hell bound to sleep with Day before he gets married. To me, Charlie Day and Jennifer Aniston stole the movie. Charlie Day is really solidifying himself as a comedy actor and Jennifer Aniston was almost unrecognizable. The stuff that came out of her mouth was ridiculous! She was super filthy and was just awesome to watch. I hope she decides to venture out and do more roles like that in the future.

Horrible Bosses is an awesome comedy that is guaranteed to make you laugh again and again. I asked for more Rated R movies and so far, so good. Horrible Bosses is just freakin hilarious, yes indeed.

So Much To Say

Say my hell is the closet
I'm stuck inside
Can't see the light
And my heaven is a nice house
In the sky
Got central heating
And I'm alright
Yeah, yeah, yeah...
Can’t see the light
Keep it locked up inside
Don’t talk about it
Talk about the weather
Can't see the light
Open up my head and let me out, little baby
Here we have been standing
For a long, long time
Treading trodden trails for a long, long time
I say my hell is the closet
I'm stuck inside
Can't see the light
And my heaven is a nice house in the sky
Got central heating and I'm alright
Here we have been standing for a long, long time
Treading trodden trails for a long, long time
I find sometimes it's easy
To be myself
Sometimes I find it's better to be somebody else

I see you young and soft oh little baby
Little feet, little hands, little baby
One year of cryin' and the words creep up inside
Creep into your mind
So much to say
Here we have been standing for a long, long time
Treading trodden trails for a long, long time
I find sometimes it's easy
To be myself
Sometimes I find it's better
To be somebody else

So much to say
Open up my head and let me out
Little baby
