There are fun comments on my recent blog post about the upcoming horror film, Sharpay's Fabulous Adventure. Technically, it's not a horror film, but I'm sure it will inspire horror in many who watch it. Once again, here's the preview:
Now for the comments!
First off, Sharpay's ugly dog. You might recall that this dog appeared randomly in the High School Musical movies, even though dogs don't belong in high school. It turns out that the dog belongs to the movie director. Mr. Director wanted his dog in the movie, so he put the dog in the movie.
Now, no offense to Mr. Director, but his dog is kind of...ugly. Plus, it didn't belong in the movies.
Upon closer inspection, it appears that they have replaced Mr. Director's Ugly Dog with a new dog, which is decidedly less ugly and probably better trained. Therefore, I take back what I said about the dog in this movie being ugly. A thousand apologies to the dog and its owners.
Second, I'm pretty sure the name "Sharpay" is simply the French version of "Sharpee". As in, the marker. People make up weird names nowdays...
Third, Holden Caufield is a whiner. About six times in the book, he goes off on a one to two page whining spree about how he wants to call Jane Gallagher, but he's afraid to. And in the end, he never calls her, and you wonder why that was even put in the book.
I dunno, I liked Holden, but I read the other books by J.D. Salinger, and they're all exactly the same (only a lot worse), so I lost my taste for his writing. Hearing him whine about how everyone else is a horrible person, and children are so beautiful, and everyone else is horrible, and I wish I were a deaf/mute so I would never have to deal with other people again, because everyone else is horrible, and why don't they care about the ducky duck ducks and, God, other people are just horrible, and....you get the idea. Salinger has a real hang-up about how he hates other people. Which, I suppose, is why he was a hermit who never left his house.
Fourth, I don't think Disney is making the Sharpay movie, just because Tron bombed at the box office. Disney had this planned before Tron bombed.
And what the heck is Tron, anyway? I hear it's some movie which bombed in the 80's. So they remade it, and it bombed again? That was kind of a dumb decision. The previews don't help very much, either, because they were confusing and didn't make the movie look good.
