Here is an analogy so good, it should be it's own original post in a new thread.
In the original Invasion of the Body Snatcher (not the remake)
all the character played by Kevin McCarthy needed really was to sleep.
There was no conspiracy.
He just needed sleep.
No change in people.
Just a good nights rest.
Now, in the remake, the creative team (can there be a creative team on a remake? How creative is it) however
they KNOW what the people felt about the original.
therefore, wink, wink, people go into the remake in a totally different frame of mind.
So, in the remake, of course it was a conspiracy.
It's no different than Gilligan's Island.
OF COURSE the professor could from minute one actually have gotten all of them off the island.
But why would he? He was something of a loner, and now had some really good friends with him, who wouldn't think he was an oddball and would freely talk with him any day of the week.
(and that is what made the Spoof Brady Bunch movie so funny when at the end it was revealed the Professor was actually
Carol Brady's first husband and the father of the three all of them had hair of gold, like their mother, the youngest one in curls.)
The only reason this issue is seemingly so important in 2013, when the whole world knew about this for specifically years,
but in general decades is-
You all watched the original, and now are going in there with to this, with having seen the original.
The kids think they are onto the greatest thing.
But the parents have already seen the original and there really is NOTHING that can beat the original, and definitely nothing
Think about it.
(btw, when 9-11 happened, live time, first thought in my mind, as I was watching tv, livetime Channel 7 in NYC a few minutes to 9am
to watch the inane bantering of Regis starting at 9, when they broke in saying the first plane hit,
My first instinct was a small plane
When they live time showed live the 2nd plane, 100% true, my first instinct was this was the script of Bruce Willis's Part Two of Die Hard, the one where at the start, they control the power over the airplanes, and the pilots thought they were in a different place
than they were.
And 9-11 ended up (of all things) playing out like the first Die Hard.
While we looked up, all that was happening was actually happening below.
Or, in Get Smart terms
This is the old make them think it is so bad, that they turn on the President and the party that brought them out of the
deep badness that pervaded and of which, 9-11 was the central focus, solely to bring back the person who made it so bad to begin with trick.
And is it working? You tell me. That would be telling.
(btw, mock this if you want, this entire piece wrote itself. Fifteen minutes ago, I didn't even know I was going to write this,
NOR did I know how it would end. It wrote itself).
(and if you say ???what is this mishmash, well, everything I have to say at 445am in NYC area on 6/18/2013 is clearly in this post.
Back in two hours going to the gym.)
