That's one way to make a stealth adaptation of Robinson's Mars Trilogy.
I'd watch it.
Oh, I'm under NO obligation to be consistent.
I can actually see that happening.
I think I would watch anything dealing with Cowboys or even any old world ideas coming into clash with modern tech or sensibilities. Lots of drama in the idea and it also helps make something that is both nostalgic but also with something to say about modern times.
Kind of like Cowboys & Aliens. I found that to be a fun movie despite its flaws.
I can't remember the name of the show but there was one that did exactly this, where the railroad came into town and it was a big adjustment from the older way of doing things to having the newer technology. Dr. Quinn: Medicine Woman had some themes like that but not always.
Maybe they cam do the whole rainbow and more..
Hell on Wheels?
No, before that.
They have to fight the Federation to keep the ranch. It's Paramount, they can make it happen.
Then let's begin with a STAR TREK NEXT GEN/UNTOUCHABLES mirror-mirror in which Costner and Connery's crusaders shoot out all the replicated booze on Ten Forward....then attempt to correct the time damage from Federal Agent Picard's
total surrender to Al Capone's forces 10 minutes into the first episode.
Or just teleport Q into any episode of THE OFFER and see what happens.
Which was? I'm rewatching it now (haven't seen it since it was first on) and its doesn't "seem" like it's over doing it beyond usual 70s jokes/tropes but I have no basis for comparison.
If ever they really do get the itch to put Gibson & Glover back into a last Lethal Weapon, then I won't accept anything less than it going back to the seriousness that the 1st film had, by Riggs somehow getting Murtaugh killed some ways into the story, (Because well he REALLY is too old for this shit), & then going on a rampage outside the law, to violently & brutally avenge it, which should leave him outlawed himself after he succeeds, being chased down by the law, when he ultimately finds, among Roger's belongings, the lone suicide bullet he gave to Roger at the end of the 1st film, (Still wrapped in its Christmas bow) and realizing the only thing left for him to do is finally use it, because there's no reason not to anymore. This is how you close that tale. The days of jokes & mock heroism is over. Holy shit, I'd watch TF out of that movie.
I thought there was a National Treasure thread, but I couldn't find it.. Regarding the new National Treasure Disney+ series... They just dropped a major hint about the possible next NT Movie. Plus, Riley Poole makes a more than cameo appearance.
Either that, or the line with the hint could have just been a call out to the last movie. But you never know.
Dragged Across Concrete was the Lethal Weapon final film that should’ve been.
That's basically the direction I'm saying, with some expected rewrites to better fit the Murtaugh/Riggs dynamic, especially given the age discrepancy, where Riggs was something like 15 years Murtaugh's junior, & in this final film, would end up being some point in his 60s, which would leave poor Roger a pushing 80 geriatric old man, and if you have to see Roger die, that's basically when the wheels come off in a John Wick plot sense, where Martin loses whatever reason he had to be the guy he had been with Roger & because of Roger, & it's back to being the title man
The much-mooted Gladiator sequel seems to be happening, with Ridley Scott apparently seeking to cast Paul Mescal, swapping his O’Neill’s GAA shorts for some gladiator shorts.
Bruckheimer is saying Cage will be doing a third National Treasure movie. Which is great news to my mind.
How is it? Worth watching? I've been considering starting it.
