Dan Aykroyd’s recent admission that Ghostbusters 3 will happen with or without Bill Murray has fused faces with palms worldwide. Even with Murray, the passing of the torch to a new generation concept is a worse idea than another Indiana Jones. And Aykroyd should have learned his lesson by now. Just have a look at his track record of bad sequels and remakes.

Sgt. Bilko

This 1996 comedy is an update of the 1950′s television series The Phil Silvers Show, in which Silvers played the cunning sergeant. Steve Martin steps into that role for this iteration with Dan Aykroyd playing his easily-duped superior, Colonel Hall. Though not entirely a bad movie, it’s mostly a vehicle to have Steve Martin wiggle around on rubber legs while Aykroyd shouts and looks flummoxed.

9 Classic Movie Posters Reinvented http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/9-classic-movie-posters-reinvented/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/9-classic-movie-posters-reinvented/#comments Wed, 30 Nov -0001 00:00:00 +0000 The Alamo Drafthouse Rolling Roadshow (sponsored by Levi's) kicks off next week with public viewings of nine classic films around the country. In an interesting twist, the movies will be shown at the locations where they were filmed. The theme of the event is "‘We Are All Workers." Rooted by one of the nation’s founding principles, We Are All Workers hits the road with nine seminal screenings proving that everybody’s work is equally important. I'm an internet writer. My mere existence proves that we are not all "workers," and our work is not all "equally important." But considering the Roadshow's website describes The Godfather II, the story of a ruthless crime syndicate, as a "defining immigrant worker story," I probably shouldn't get too hung up on the logic behind the text. But what the event lacks in well written copy, it more than makes up for with these awesome redesigned film posters by artist Olly Moss. Enjoy. (First Showing) See the posters after the jump...
