Peter David is a longtime writer for Marvel, DC, and various other comic companies. He’s also written a huge number of books over the years as well as co-created a TV show for Nickelodeon, Space Cases, that gave us Jewel Staite as a spaceship mechanic more than just a few years before Firefly did. In other words, he’s probably provided most of you with many hours of entertainment more than just a few times in the past.

This is not exactly new news. As a matter of fact, it’s old enough that it was discussed as a part of the reason we’re seeing a new King Kong film in 2017. We’re getting Kong: Skull Island in part- perhaps in large part –because they want a “shared universe” in order to have King Kong eventually meet the King of Monsters for a big budget, Hollywood battle royal.
Now, I’m not as anti-remake as a lot of other people can be. My attitude towards remakes with regards to potential quality is that they have a no greater or lesser chance at being good than an original film. I don’t do the complaints that remakes always suck, shouldn’t be made, or are never as good as the original, so that’s not what this is about. But I do occasionally wonder what they’re thinking when they decide that they’re going to do a certain property and how they intend to do it. So, along with a bit of a review of the original film, that’s what I’ll be doing here.

Embrace, Promote, and Defend What You Love. Support Your Friends’ Works and Others. It Can Pay DividendsPosted: September 29, 2016 in Conventions, Dragon Con, Family, Life, Needless Things, The Blog
Support what you love. Promote what you love. Those seem like pretty basic concepts. They also seem like easy things to do. But if you spend any time at all on social media you’ll see that a lot of people use their time “socializing” by doing things other than this. As a matter of fact, a lot of people- and I am guilty of this myself from time to time when it comes to the realm of politics –seem to spend as much time or more essentially promoting the examples of what they don’t like than they do promoting things they like. That really is something a lot of people should work on changing.
