Nightmare on Elm Street Movie Remake: My Thoughts

It has happened horror fans, Freddy Krueger is getting the remake treatment. Worse news is we might be getting a new Krueger with Robert Englund believing a younger actor should take over the role.

As a fan I am very upset. I’m more upset with Englund being replaced as Freddy Krueger then the film being remade. In this articles I will share my thoughts on this remake and why it should or should not happen.

Back in January I reported this on tubidy:

“According to Bloody Disgusting, a source inside at New Line Cinema, the studio is developing another Nightmare on Elm Street movie that will not be Freddy Vs. Jason 2.”

I assumed this meant a new sequel, which excited the fanboy in me. But deep down I knew it would be a remake cause being original in Hollywood these days is RARE.

Michael Bay and his minions have decided to hit the re-start button on the Nightmare on Elm Street, despite the last Krueger adventure (Freddy vs Jason) making big money at the box office.

They’re also doing a new Friday the 13th, but that’s not a remake (despite news sites still calling it one, IT’S NOT). Why not do that with Freddy? or is Michael Bay and his minions too lazy to come up with an original concept?

Michael Bay and his minions (I love using this term, sue me) remade “The Texas Chainsaw Massacre” in 2003 and I remember being upset before the films release. Why the hell would they want to remake such a classic!? Of course the answer would be $$$. But then I thought about the last time we saw Leatherface and that was in the terrible “Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Next Generation”. I then shut up and saw the remake in theaters and it was actually pretty damn good. It brought respect back to Leatherface, who was seen as an idiotic pussy in the last Chainsaw film.

So why no remake for Freddy for me? Cause Freddy doesn’t need respect back and the nightmare series is far from dead, unlike Texas Chainsaw Massacre. It’s all about $$$ and being unoriginal for Michael Bay and his minions. And everyone knows who Freddy Krueger is, no need to re-introduce him for the new generation.

But hitting the re-start button is not my biggest problem. It’s replacing Robert Englund. This isn’t Jason Voorhees in which several different people have played the character. Englund is Freddy. He’s played the role since the very beginning and to even think of replacing him is insulting. To make it worse Robert Englund thinks it’s a good idea! Thanks for thinking of your fans Bro. I rather see the character retire then someone else play Freddy Krueger.

But it’s going to happen any ways so why complain? cause it’s my damn right as a fanboy. I want to see a new Nightmare on Elm Street film but not a remake. I don’t want to re-start and see Nancy Thompson and her friends being terrorized by a new Freddy Krueger, screw that. I saw that film already. I want a fresh and brand new Nightmare story with Robert Englund stepping back in the role.

A script hasn’t been written yet and no director has been attached so nothing is final yet. But considering it’s Michael Bay you can expect the Nightmare on Elm Street remake to be charging at you soon.

Progressive Activist Ends, Justify The Liberal Capitalist Means

I personally can’t think of anyone on this planet that I would plunk down $35,800 to eat dinner with. According to the 2010 Census Bureau the median household income was $49,445 and after taxes, insurance and the 401K it’s far less than $35,800. So when I read that our President was attending two fundraisers for himself and the DNC at $35,000 a plate, I assume it was liberal corporations and private liberal citizens attending. Ironic isn’t it? I thought Obama didn’t like rich people other than himself, Warren Buffet, George Soros and Andy Stern. If you’re rich, green and left, then you’ve got a friend in the White House. Obama, and Stern are middle class citizens compared to the financial likes of Buffet and Soros. I’ve asked the very few wealthy liberal friends that I have and they don’t want to share their wealth with me or anyone for that matter. My liberal buddies choke on their lemon grass popsicle sticks when I bring it up. They blatantly stutter without realizing their confession “I have earned that money why should I take half and give it to you?”

Anyways, they are entitled to their choice and I am to mine as we are living in the oldest democratic country in the world and the fact that we both have difference of opinion is a good sign that indicates that democracy continues to prevail. Liberals need to take an rfp response of sorts on how to deal with financial matters concerning the government.

Liberals run around like chickens with their heads cut off, squawking about rich people needing to pay more taxes, and giving their fair share to the less fortunate meaning the government. How does Obama look these people in the eyes and say “I really don’t like you and I despise what you have worked for but give to my campaign?” The major most influential liberal foundations are the Ford Foundation, the Rockefeller Foundation, the Carnegie Corporation and the Gates Foundation all created by America’s most avid capitalists. The rationale would be that progressives working towards creating a “new world order” should keep away from the foundations formed by the same capitalists who stand to lose the most from this skewed submissive governmental theory of control. Is anyone asking this question? Why are progressives / liberals and several radical groups accepting funding from these major liberal capitalist foundations?

Several progressive activists realize that the biggest goals and objectives of capitalist-funded liberal foundations are unable to coexist with their own uncompromising, diehard dreams for our planet. However in realizing this conflict of interest, it’s obvious that progressive groups assume that they can deceive the liberal capitalist foundations at their own game and hoodwink them into donating to the projects that will engage and promote serious progressive social change. In short, progressive groups / activist will take money from anyone as long as contracts and strings aren’t attached to the greenbacks. So I gather that the liberal foundations are funding the activist groups that are trying to bring about massive societal changes, basically at their own capitalist demise. So why do these foundations keep funding the progressive activists at the expense of their own possible extinction?

Former SEIU President Andy Stern and close friend of the White House said “We use the power of persuasion first. If it doesn’t work, we try the persuasion of power.” Isn’t that how we were raised? No? Me either but it explains how the means justify the ends.

How To Protect Your Online Privacy And Search The Web Freely

2011 was a year filled with tracking scandals. From the news that Facebook tracks its users and everything that they do, to Carrier IQ being found embedded in millions of smartphones. This tracking trend has made people rightfully mad, and many have been trying to find ways to stay below the tracking radars while browsing the web.

What can we do to stop being tracked?

Fortunately there are some great programs that can help hide you while you are on the web, but why would you want to stop being tracked on the web?

Have you ever wondered how each and every website you visit some how knows what you have been shopping for? Have you ever wondered how websites know your exact location? Tracking software is embedded into almost every single website that you visit.

What does the tracking software do?

Tracking software does exactly what you think it does, and much more. Tracking software has been collecting and selling web browser’s search data for years, so that advertisers can target each individual with ads that would be relevant to each user. The spy software adds cookies to your computer (without asking I might add), and then other websites access those cookies to see where you have been. It is a true vicious cycle.

Online data collection and the selling of that data brings in a whopping $25.3 billion dollars each year to tracking software companies, and that number is expected to grow by a stunning 36% to $34.5 billion by the end of 2012. It is safe to say that tracking on the web will not be going away, so what can consumers do to protect their privacy?

Anti-tracking software

Ghostery is a free piece of software that does more than simply send out requests to not be tracked (like some anti-tracking software). Ghostery automatically blocks any attempt, by any website that tries to track your online movements including Google’s DoubleClick and Microsoft’s Media Network tracking mechanisms.

Do Not Track Plus is another great piece of free software that is continually updated by a team of over 300,000 voluntary users who report fresh attempts of tracking. By using either piece of software you will be shutting the door on would-be marketers who would stick advertisements all over your web browsing experience. In fact a simple trip to cnn.com with either piece of software installed would show you that your simple trip to read the current headlines would get you tracked by 9 separate tracking companies.

If you do not want to be tracked anymore then its good to consider the software to be rented by the a genuine site and start Looking for TorGuard Coupon code? Because it will give some extra bonus over the purchase.
