12:56AM - Torchwood fic
Can someone explain to me the Torchwood fandom's fascination in writing fic series? It seems like the communities are *filled* with fic series, and a stunning amount of them have 40-100 chapters. I've never seen anything like it in any other fandom. Like the majority of the writers writes series rather than one shots.
3:12AM - having a rule 34 problem
Okay, wankas, help a sister out: Die Hard fanfic. Where's the John McClane/Hans Gruber hiding at? It's an Alan Rickman character, I refuse to believe this has not been done.
10:45AM - -sporfle-
I was just on Amazon trying to find a certain quote from the book The Gift of Fear. When I scrolled down, I saw the expected "looking for _____ Products?" section, but the content of it...
( I want to have the Tag feature's scary demon babies. )
6:38PM - Ace Attorney Investigations: Miles Edgeworth in English this winter!
It's official! Ace Attorney Investigations: Miles Edgeworth is "making its way to the west this winter!"
In this point-and-click adventure, Edgeworth investigates crime scenes in order to find the truth, presenting contradictions to material witnesses as they occur. Edgeworth can use a "logic" mode to determine connections between two pieces of evidence. When sufficient evidence has been gathered, Edgeworth faces down the suspect!
Universel remaking 'Drop Dead Fred' as a starring vehicle for Russell Brand.
Universal is resurrecting "Drop Dead Fred," this time as a starring vehicle for Russell Brand.
Dennis McNicholas, one of the writers of Universal's upcoming "Land of the Lost," will pen the remake. Marc Platt is producing via his studio-based Marc Platt Prods. along with Working Title's Tim Bevan and Eric Fellner.
The 1991 original starred Phoebe Cates as a wallflower who loses her job and husband during the course of a lunch hour. Forced to live back home, she's reunited with her childhood imaginary friend (Brit actor Rik Mayall), who promises to help but causes more havoc.
Produced by PolyGram and Working Title, the first "Fred" was critically drubbed and commercially unsuccessful. But it did achieve a certain cult status and is considered a film that fell short of its full potential.
The take for the new "Fred" is to make a film in the tone of "Beetlejuice," building a universe around the concept of imaginary friends. Brand would play the trouble-making pal.
So, the current remake trend has spread beyond just horror movies, and not even unsuccessful 90s comedies are safe anymore. Seriously, how hard can it be to come up with a semi-original plot if all you want is a comedy with Russell Brand wreaking havoc?
