PPV'd Sabotage. The "special forces" guys the cartel use in the film are sloppy as fuck, and I also don't see why everyone that'd been targeted wasn't put in some kind of protective custody as soon as the first agent was murdered

Why don't they just reboot T.J. Hooker as a new tv show, like what they did with Hawaii Five-0? I'd watch it (unless they completely botched it up like what they did with that godawful Charlie's Angels reboot show).

Was it even that good of a show? (I was just joking, but at this point, I wouldn't be surprised if they did make a movie of it.) Charlie's Angels didn't work because unlike in 1976, audiences had more than four channels available and it just wasn't that good of a show. A lot of stuff back then were hits just because there wasn't a lot of competition.

That being said, I'd really like to see a reboot or continuation of Miami Vice.

It's a collector's item now, though. Back in the day it was only about $50. I wish they'd re-release it. Heck, I wish they'd bring back the Pirates line as a whole. And do a Greco-Roman line.

I hope they don't just burn him off in one movie then.

Now that the whitewashed, live action Akira adaptation is stalled/dead, another classic manga is up.

I have a feeling that this adaptation (if it ever gets off the ground) will sodomize the source material, just like how Dragonball Evolution did to the original manga.

And note to Hollywood: LEAVE THE MANGA ADAPTATIONS TO THE JAPANESE!! THEY PROVE THAT THEY CAN MAKE PROPER ADAPTATIONS!!!
