In a previous post I mentioned an Alvin and the Chipmunks live action movie. Well, feast your eyes on this:
Not only is this movie actually being made, but it is due out December 14!! With this rush to get the film out along with the ugly designs of these classic characters, my hopes are not high at all.
The main thing that bugged me at first was the hiphop style they seem to be sporting. Fans of the original series, the Alvin Show, and the 80s comeback, Alvin and the Chipmunks, will remember the Chipmunks in a band. Will these Chipmunks be in a band? Probably not. The Chipmunks of the past have always sung popular music. In the 60s the popular style was Beatles-style rock and in the 80s it was what is now known as classic rock. But what is the most popular style of music today? Hiphop. So now that I think about it I realize that it is appropriate for Alvin, Simon and Theodore to be all thug and bling. But that doesn't mean i have to be happy about it.
I want your opinion. There have been some pretty awful cartoon-to-live-action movies over the years. What is your favourite live-action remake? What is the worst? leave me a comment with your opinion.
Here are some of the ones that I remember to help you out:
