The Simpsons strikes again:

Nothing surprises me anymore. Years ago, when discussing the plethora of big budget film releases based on recycling old tv shows, I said " you watch, it'll be Scooby ****ing Doo the movie next " Everyone laughed. As they were supposed to. It was literally the most ludicrous thing I could think of.

Of course as we all know, they made it a couple of years later. & then a sequel.

The 21st century has **** all to offer on most levels.

Watched the Road House
2024 version recently.
Patrick will be turning in his grave, ( Sam Elliott wouldn’t be too chuffed either!)

Tbh I've always been a bit baffled how such a relentlessly average film managed to achieve the more or less legendary status it's enjoyed for all these years. I've always thought of it as a bank holiday 10:30 BBC1 sort of thing.

Still, the same applies to Dirty Dancing & that has the same resonance for women of a certain age as Roadhouse does for men of the same era. I guess Swayze (or his agent) had a good eye for the zeitgeist.
