I can’t be the only person to think this is the worst idea ever, right?
Unfortunately, this isn’t a joke. And you know what’s worse?
It will be live-action.
It’s being shown in 3D.
The director, Raja Gosnell, also helmed Beverly Hills Chihuahua and Big Mama’s House.
This does not bode well. To make matters worse, IGN has produced this quote from producer Jordan Kerner,
“We feel absolutely, positively Smurfy to be working with [Gosnell].”
Now, I was never the biggest fan of the series as a kid, so maybe fans will be more receptive of the movie. That being said, I’m not holding my breath. I remember the abomination that was The Adventures of Rocky & Bullwinkle (what was De Niro thinking?).
What do you guys think?
Wow! Bringing The Smurfs back to life ! What's the point in this? They ran out of ideas for animated movies?
There's a place where childhood dies, a holy site far from this world. It lies in a sheathed realm, where there at the gates stands a being not of any that a human mind can conceive with a glaive in its manacle which can sunder flesh from bone before the soul can be ejected. And, at times, this fabled beast takes a lunch break at which point some opportunistic hack decides to drop trow and do things to the gently reposing corpse of my memories which would carry harsh prison sentences where they done on any physically deceased being (preferably with a rather large inmate named Bubba, looking for love, as their bunk mate).
Movie Makers: get your merde-stained hands off my childhood, specially if you lack even the creative faculties to direct a 1st grade talent show.
My last comment was eaten by blogger. We'll see if this one makes it – not that my opinion on the Smurfs is something to be saved! Ha.
Anyway, I wouldn't pay to see the Smurfs but my grandson likes Blue's Clues so he might.
