Who You Got?

Another addition of Which Movie Sounds Worse:

Wall Street 2 - Directed by Oliver Stone, starring Michael Douglas and possibly Shia LeBeouf.


Drop Dead Fred - A remake starring the only-tolerable-in-FSM Russell Brand.

Well, what do you think? I really can't pick here. They both sound truly awful.

I had forgotten that these were being sequelized/remade. I'm going with the remake of "Drop Dead Fred" as the worst of the two. Even though I don't know of anyone who was clamoring for a sequel to "Wall Street', the story does have possibilities given the current economic climate.

Some Guy said...

Yeah. Not good. I'd give the Wall Street one a slight edge.

Wait, these are REAL? I thought it was hypothetical until I read Malcolm's comment. I need to go be a farmer somewhere.

That said, anything with Russell Brand automatically loses.

I don't know which is worse, but I would just like to thank you for posting a picture of the adorably adorableriffic Phoebe Cates. No matter how tragic the pageboy haircut.

Can I just gouge my eyes out?

I actually JUST saw someone on the subway today reading that news about the Wall Street sequel in the paper. (Yeah, I'm one of those annoying people who tries to read other peoples' papers on the train.)

I guess I'm the only one who thinks that a sequel to Wall Street might actually be good (the working title btw is Money Never Sleeps). I think it could be an interesting examination of the current state of the financial world. And come on... Gordon Gekko is one of the best roles Michael Douglas ever played. So what if the original Wall Street is so laughingly 80's? It was made in the 80's and about the 80's. Perfect fit if you ask me. And I can think of only one Oliver Stone movie that really sucked (Alexander, but to be fair I didn't watch all of it) and then a handful of movies that were just disappointments (The Doors, W, U-Turn, Any Given Sunday).
