New Buffy Movie = Me Not Happy


Ok, so Chantale saved this title in drafts, but I'm stealing it from her because I agree with it.

The internet is buzzin' about the new Buffy movie, and we're anti-excitey. Don't touch it! Mostly we're pissy-wissy because the filmmakers are just jumpin' on the recent vampwagon.

It's still in development at this point, but Joss Whedon is on board. At least this revamp (get it?) has that going for it.

Who would you like to see play the Buff? I'm sure they'll choose some hot blonde young starlet who looks good in a tank top. OR my guess is they could also go in a different direction, and instead of making her a bimbo, make Buffy into a brooding sarcastic brunette or something, à la Zooey Deschanel.

What do you guys think of this remake? Should they remake entirely, or make this a continuation/sequel? Maybe Buffy had a babyslayer and is now training her to carry on the legacy? I should get paid for this.

UPDATE: Mr. Mike D of Cultural Compulsive Disorder sent us an article from Slash Film which informs us that Jossy is NOT in fact involved. Does this change anyone's outlook on the upcoming flick? Read the article here!

That would be the only way I see it,
is if Zoey Deschanel does it.

I have tragically mixed emotions about this. On the one hand, I'm just curious to see what they would do. On the other hand, I want to murder the Kuzuis. Seriously. They're talking about making a Buffy that isn't "your childhood Buffy" or whatever. And I'm thinking, "what the Hell are you going to do to her?" Then they're all like "she'll be a Buffy for a new generation"... and that makes me think that they think all of us are old stupid people who can't remember seven years ago. That hasn't been that long and...

Phew. Okay. Stopping rant now. Seriously. Just. Stopping.

Hey guys... I love your site, but you are a bit off on this one. You are correct that they are rebooting Buffy, but incorrect in saying Joss Whedon is involved. The powers that be did ask him first a few years ago, but he declined. Then they made this new announcement last week, and Whedon issued a funny diatribe about it. Check it out here:

That tells it all... Im with you guys about no reason to revisit this movie, but just wanted you to know that this is a "Whedon-less" Buffy Reboot... which makes it even worse!!!! Love you guys!!!

haha thanks Mike! We saved this in drafts so long ago that I guess the deets have changed. We're not into this reboot mostly because EEVVEERRYYTHHIINNGG these days is a remake, sequel, blah blah etc. LOL!

Updated the post with your details!

Mr. Mike D. said...

I know you guys hated the idea... you gotta love Whedon's sarcastic comments. Here is what I don't get: Why always a reboot of a property? Just do a similar story, but if its not a shot for shot remake, why share the title? Glad could help. You guys rock!

Oh, and just for the record, I'm Mike D from Cultural Compulsive Disorder... I just sent you the link from Slash Film. You follow us... CCD Baby!!!

Angie said...

LOL shit, sorry Mike. In this blogging world I just assumed you would send me something from your own blog, haha!

Mr. Mike D. said...

No prob... Like I said, I love you guys and all you do. Just wanted to make sure you had it all straight. Glad to know we see things the same way!!!!
