Top Ten Films They Should Have Made...

Over at Ellie Garratt's blog inspired by the fact that Clint Eastwood was approached to play both James Bond and Superman, she's running a blogfest about the:

I think I've slightly missed the point because for the most part I haven't recast existing movies, but instead I've included some sequels, remakes and adaptations that I'd like to see.

Here's my top ten movies they should have made:

Star Wars Episode II: Attack Of The Clones
Sticking with Jake Lloyd as Anakin Skywalker instead of Hayden Christensen.

Serenity II
They just should. It would be shiny.

Dr Who And The Chase Of The Daleks
Peter Cushing (and probably Roberta Tovey) star in the third Dalek film, the 1967 adaptation of Terry Nation’s television scripts from two years earlier as the time travellers are pursued through history from the Marie Celeste to Mechanus via Morton Dill...

The Restaurant At The End Of The Universe
The Hammer & Tongs Hitchhiker's was not the failure it was deemed to be by hardcore fans and a sequel could have been wonderful.

Wacky Races: The Movie
I'm amazed that a live action Wacky Races with CGI cars and hi-jinx hasn't happened already.

The Secret Of Monkey Island
When I saw Pirates Of The Caribbean I knew there would never be a Monkey Island movie which is unfortunate since it was awful. When such a mediocre film had two such successful sequels and a third on the way, I began to wonder...

Strontium Dog
As 2000 AD's stony-faced figurehead Judge Dredd gets a second cinematic outing, but I'd be very interested in seeing Johnny Alpha on the silver screen. Would geek-du-jour Simon Pegg be interested in playing him again?

Danny Boyle and Ewan McGregor need to get over whatever they fell out about and get on with making this.

The YouTubings of Somegreybloke have left me wondering what a big screen version would be like?

Star Wars Episode III: Revenge Of The Sith
With Jake Lloyd as Anakin Skywalker instead of Hayden Christensen again. I really don't like Hayden Christensen.

Awesome list. I can see why you took a different angle with the blogfest!

1. I haven't heard of Jake Lloyd. Let me just google him. Ahem. . .he looks very similar to Hayden Christensen or is that just me?
2. Well, of course. How hard is it for the movie executives to realise this?
3. Now that I want to see.
4. And this one.
5. LOL.
6. Never played that game, but Bubbles could star in it.
7. Not seen this one either.
8. Oh, yes. Yes. Yes. Yes. Sorry, having a Meg Ryan moment.
9. It would be awesome!
10. Poor Hayden. What did he ever do apart from annoy the hell out of cinema audiences around the world. Really, leave the poor guy alone. LOL.

Thanks for taking part!

Jake Lloyd played young Anakin Skywalker in Episode I and despite his tender age displayed much more ability than Christensen did in II & III.

Yes, Serenity II should be made.

They are doing a new Judge Dredd movie.

Hayden Christianson's best role was in Shattered Glass and he ruined the Star Wars movies. Well, him and George Lucas.

At least Lloyd could've acted! And totally agree - there needs to be a Serenity II. And the show needs to return.

See you at the premiere(s)...
