Magic 8-Ball Movie Remakes

I'm not making this up:  Paramount Pictures is working on making a movie based on the Magic 8 Ball. Yup...that little round fortune teller is getting a movie of his (or her) own. Apparently GI Joe was so successful they want to keep working with Mattel, and the Magic 8 Ball is the first thing that came to mind. (Read about it here.) Apparently they want it to be an action movie. Huh? I can't really imagine that. Instead I pondered what would happen if you remade some old movies, and included a Magic 8 Ball element.

Wizard of Oz

Dorothy and Toto have just been sent on their merry way, when they come to a fork in the yellow brick road. Dorothy: "Follow the yellow brick road... Well now which way do we go?" Scarecrow: That way is a very nice way..but that one is pleasant too. Perhaps we should consult the Magic 8 ball you have in your basket." Dorothy: Good idea! (Shakes ball, looks at it). "Reply hazy. Ask again later." --

Gone With The Wind

Scarlett: (upon hearing Rhett is leaving her) "Where shall I go? What shall I do? Will you ever come back?" Rhett: "Frankly my dear, "  shaking Magic 8 ball, "Don't count on it." --

The Graduate

Benjamin: Mrs. Robinson, you're trying to seduce me, aren't you?" Mrs. Robinson: (puts down her glass of vodka and grabs the Magic 8 Ball) "Signs point to yes." Coming soon: Classic Movie Remakes, the Rubik's Cube versions.

Marshall's Top Albums of 2014
1. U2- Songs of Innocence: One of my favorite English poets is, William Blake. Jim Morrison of the Doors was so inspired by Blake's poetry, he used one of Blake's lines, "the doors of perception," to name the Doors….the Doors! So, this U2 album,...
