When it comes to video games I am obsessive-compulsive about beating them. If I start a game I must finish it. No matter how bad, or how hard it is I will not rest until the ending credits have rolled across the screen. Like Bruce Hornsby says ... that's just the way it is!

I can’t take it anymore! Hollywood wants to destroy every childhood memory I hold dear, by remaking all of my favorite cartoons into horrible movies. They already took Transformers and made into the laughing stock of the cinema community. From what I can tell, they plan on doing the same thing with G.I. Joe in a couple of months. They even have plans to bring Voltron to the big screen, which I’m sure can only turn out horribly bad. Now though, they have gone too far, because today it was announced Hollywood would be remaking The Secret of Nimh.

I read this story today as I was perusing through IO9.com and I immediately threw up a little bit in my mouth. I don’t know about the rest of you, but “The Secret of Nimh” holds a very special place in my heart. I consider it to be one of the classic animated movies of all time, created from one of the most classic children’s novels of all time. I mean they just don’t make movies anymore like this. It was dark, gritty, and edgy, yet humorous and light hearted all at the same time. It had very memorable great characters, including evil villains, old mystical wizards, a clumsy crow, and some of the most adorable mice you’ve ever seen. The whole movie was blanketed in a cloud of mysticism that really set the tone for the entire thing, especially the end. They just do not make children’s movies like this anymore. Hell, they don’t even make adult movies like this anymore.



Now Hollywood wants to take this classic movie and remake it in a CGI shit fest. Now look, you might think I’m going to far by saying this. I mean after all I haven’t seen a single second of footage yet, so I could be totally wrong. Trust me I’m not wrong. Read this quote from the makers of the new film.

“It's likely the new "NIMH" would combine live-action and animation in the manner of "Alvin & the Chipmunks" and other kiddie hybrids.”

Did any of you see the Alvin and the Chipmunks movie? It was absolutely horrible. That’s another childhood cartoon I watched, and used to love until Hollywood went and ruined it. If they are trying to relate the new Secret of Nimh movie to the before mentioned Alvin and the Chipmunks movie, it can ONLY be a bad thing. I just have to many examples that prove Hollywood does not know how to take cartoons and turn them into movie. Maybe the problem is that cartoons just don’t translate well into movies anyways, but that’s a discussion for another time I think.

Hollywood is completely out of ideas right now, so they are scraping every last cent off the bottom of the barrel by taking my childhood cartoons and turning them into movies. Now they want to take a classic like The Secret of Nimh and remake it as well, most likely destroying it in the process. I just can’t take it anymore. FUCK YOU HOLLYWOOD!!!!

All I can do now is watch this trailer from the original movie, to remind myself of a time when 2D animated movies ruled the world.
