Disney's "The Black Hole" Remake

In this age of Science Fiction remakes (ala Battlestar Galactica, Star Trek) there is a movie that has NEVER gotten the appreciation that it deserves and is ripe for a remake, Disney's 1978 masterpiece "The Black Hole"

The work that went in to producing this film is simply stunning. The SFX you need to remember are long before CGI fest stuff. All of the stuff you see is hand drawn animation on top of models. Some of the most detailed models ever made for any movie.

The film would be killer as a remake. Hmmm maybe it's time for my movie studio Retro Films to go a calling to Disney??

Outrageous Corporate Behavior

So those of you that know me, know that I am a staunch conservative and pro-business guy. I hate paying taxes, and think that Government needs to stay out of markets and if that precludes businesses in those markets going under and the possible "devastating" consequences then so be it. Nature abhors a vacuum and if there is a failure of a business even a big business like the auto makers there will be eventually someone to come in and fill the void.

Which makes me all the more pissed to see the big 3 automakers up on capital hill begging for my and yours money to get them out of the mess THEY created for themselves, but what frost me even more is these arrogant people arrive in Washington DC on private jets at $20,000 a flight. Am I the only one that sees the hypocrisy here!
