Blue Lagoon Is Coming Back


Apparently Return To The Blue Lagoon so long ago did not convince executives that the name Blue Lagoon should never be uttered again or put on film because they are remaking the original. Look. I have been adamant before about Hollywood trying to come up with something original and instead just recycling crap or squeezing every last drop out of a franchise that was never intended to be franchise. When you are making movies named after board games just for the marketing tie ins, then things have got out of hand. Then I heard they were remaking Blue Lagoon. Granted it is just going to be a Lifetime movie, but how can you remake an awful movie? Plus, being on Lifetime there won't even be the nudity to get you through the slow scenes. It's like producers went through the entire Katherine Heigl/Jennifer Aniston catalog over the past few years and said, lets remake them all. This time they will be better. Oh, and to make them better lets have Denise Richards act in them. You know that my attitude towards Denise has changed 180 degrees in the past few years because I think, with the exception of her choices in who she dates she has taken great care of her kids and pets and every other kid that gets dropped off at her door at 2am. Oh, it has happened.


But, she has not exactly lit up the world when it comes to acting. So, right away when you say she is going to play a big role in the remake and that Christopher Atkins is making a cameo you just have to wonder how bad it is going to be. Throw in some Tori Spelling and a dash of Shannen Doherty and some Real Housewives sprinkles and you have yourself a very low rated made for television movie.

Don't forget about JLH.

I am so sick of remakes of things that don't need to be remade. Usually because the first was so good. This time because the first was so bad.

oh Lord.

CHRISTOPHER ATKINS - be still my beating heart - OMG was he YUMMY when I was little! He was so damn cute in that movie! I'm having a completely inappropriate reaction to this post, haven't thought about him in years. Oh, boy. He was beautiful.

and Lindsay Lohan will be claiming she has this role in 3.2.1...

BigMama said...

That movie was sooooooo scandalous when I was younger. Usually my teen and I like to pop corn and watch bad SyFy while taking bets on who dies first. However we may have to try and catch this one. Might get an actual scare out of it.

Is that a reveal? About kids dropped off at her house at 2 am?

timebob said...

Oh I am sure she has taken care of Charlie's sons when Brooke was out drugging and Charlie couldn't handle them. Denise & Charlie have been very cozy lately. Though his daughters always steer clear of him in the pictures.

I don't understand WHY a remake?

Are there NO original concepts for a movie anymore?

crila16 said...

Wait a minute...is that a joke about Denise Richards? Is she playing the mother or the Brooke Shields part...or did I misread the entire article?

Laura said...

Maybe that is a reveal that the new baby is really Charlie's baby after all.

Nosey Parker said...

The Tristan Wilds post has me thinking... I wish they'd turn 'The Wire' into a movie!

SeattleMarge said...

Christopher Atkins was so hot in Dallas! OMG. I think DR's newest baby looks like Charlie.

Aren't they suppose to make decent movies into remakes? This movie got panned when it first came out.

Everyone kept talking about Brooke being underage and needing a body double. Except for the fact she dies, that's all I remember about this movie.

Brooke is so gorgeous in this photo. It made me feel sympathetic towards the natural beauties who are aging in public. Normally, I would not feel badly for someone who won the gene lottery and has been made rich because of it -- but can you imagine looking back at these photos and then the reality of the morning mirror?? Aging sucks for all of us.

That script. The acting. Why not remake this movie? So riveting!

I watched it last year after not seeing it for decades. I could not look away. What a train wreck. It's so bad.

I've vented before about how unoriginal the suits of Hollywood are. So I'll just type my favorite word for them. Fucktards.

I re-watched this a couple of months ago and the only good thing I could say about it was how freaking beautiful they both were. My God, they were like blinding my eyes, lol!
Most stupid remake ever.

feraltart said...

I remember the big news at the time was seeing Christopher's doodle. I certainly looked for it.

I gave Blue Lagoon a pass, only because the premise sounds so good on paper. If someone actually does it right, it could be a really good movie maybe like Lost kind of.

What's next? A remake of Baby Geniuses?
