First item up is the news that the ever original Hollywood is bringing out yet another remake.  This time it’s the ’70s scifi TV show, Space: 1999.  Of course, it’s retitled Space: 2099, mostly because we already know what happened in space in 1999 and it wasn’t all that exciting.  I remember the original TV show and my memory was that, like 1999, it wasn’t all that exciting either.  Hopefully, the new movie from ITV Studios America and HD Films will be, but the early poster isn’t very reassuring on that score.

Finally, George Lucas wants everyone to get over the Han-Greedo shootout.

Well, it’s not a religious event. I hate to tell people that. It’s a movie, just a movie. The controversy over who shot first, Greedo or Han Solo, in Episode IV, what I did was try to clean up the confusion, but obviously it upset people because they wanted Solo [who seemed to be the one who shot first in the original] to be a cold-blooded killer, but he actually isn’t. It had been done in all close-ups and it was confusing about who did what to whom. I put a little wider shot in there that made it clear that Greedo is the one who shot first, but everyone wanted to think that Han shot first, because they wanted to think that he actually just gunned him down.

Seriously, after a few decades some things just need to be let go.
