    First, the Dukes of Hazzard, then Transformers, now He-Man.

    Voltron and Thundercats are probably next.

    One day they'll run out of things to re-make and the post-modern era will be over.

    There was a live action He-Man back in the 80's. I wonder if this is going to be a remake, re-invisioning, sequel, or prequel? :D

    I seem to remember that. Although I'm having trouble finding it on IMDB.

    It was about as good as Krull right?

    Here it is: Masters of the Universe

    I'm hoping for sequel...Dolph is 50 this year, would be interesting to see him go through a He-Mid-Life-Crisis. A prequel could be interesting as well...seeing an awkward He-Teen with his He-Acne..."By the power of Clearasil" :p

    I wonder if HE-Man and She-Ra will still be together.

    Add a little bit of crazy tiger and horse action into it, and you got yourself a hottt movie.

    Sadly, I'll probably base my excitement about He-Man on the quality of Transformers. That said, I'm already far less excited about He-Man than I am about Transformers...any idea who'll play He-Man?

    Edit: Oops, should've read the post above me :) Pitt?! No way, he's a waif compared to He-Man.....

    My apologies to any He-Man fans on these forums, but I can't think of a worse thing to base a movie on.

    I mean come on, what about a good movie idea for a change? With most movies these days I could tell you whether or not it had a chance to be any good just by hearing the title, and for most of the remaining ones the plot summary would be enough.

    They should make a Care Bears movie. Here's what is going to be the big "draw" for people who think it's a stupid idea: Instead of CGI, they use real, caring bears!

    They also need to count down from 5, 4, 3, 2, 1.... before they start to care.

    I'd be interested to see a list (or even a count) of all the movies in the past 2 years that have been either based on a previous work (comic book, 80s TV show), an out-and-out remake of something old, or some combination thereof.

    I'd be excited to see that when it comes out. Especially since the first movie was so horribly bad, I think they'd learn from their mistakes and put out a better product this time around. And you just know She-Ra will be in it!

    But I'd much rather see a GI Joe film first. As soon as they figure out how to recreate a flight pod in real life that is.

    As one of my undergrad writing teachers told me several times, "Everything has been done at least once." I guess it applies to Hollywood even more so as these days it seems they care less about telling a good story and more about getting butts in seats and collecting ticket money.

    Don't forget the new Ninja Turtles film. It's all animated this time, though - no Muppet suits.

    I don't mean derivative works like "based on a true story" or anything like that, but OBVIOUS, clearly taken straight from a previous work (300, TMNT, Transformers, He-Man, Miami Vice, etc etc)

    Are you saying He-Man isn't based on a true story? You do know He-Man and Skeletor used to be BFFs, right?

    He man....The one from the 80's was a bore so I'll keep my expectations low.
    I thought they was making a Voltron, speed racer:rolleyes: and thundercats movie....Soon we will see MASK and Captain Planet.


    Please please leave Captain Planet were it is...I hate that cartoon

    Bill Nye The Science Guy movie please or Bekman's World...


    Bless
