Cut It Out, Hollywood

Alright, it's high time I finish my screenplay about a magic black belt that turns whoever wears it into a karate expert and one kid from a bad neighborhood with seemingly nothing left to lose gets a hold of it and at first the karate skills go to his head but then he realizes that the greatest power of all is that of friendship and he passes the black belt on to the next kid with an endearing backstory - with a soundtrack provided by Paramore and Bow Wow.

Wanna know why? Because even the most asinine and weak original stories should be considered a breath of fresh air, when you look at all the remakes and sequels Hollywood is churning out at top speed. The Neverending Story, Flight of the Navigator, Red Dawn - not to mention all the movies coming out based on toys and games.

And now this:

And it makes me sad all day. Do what you must to "Footloose", but leave "Heathers" out of it. Jerks.

You forgot the ending- it was never really the belt, it was just that it helped him believe in himself. (The school bully should steal the belt and wear it, but our intrepid hero beats him anyway)

Jimmy - you're exactly right. If you're not busy, let's get together and write a re-make of "Back to the Future". Except our version will have talking cats.
