Credit where credit is due

As a rule, movie remakes are pretty terrible, and there was absolutely no reason to remake the 1940 classic version of Pinocchio. (Actually it’s already been remade like 40 times, but I don’t think I’ve bothered to see any of those ersatz editions.)

From what I understand it’s actually happening twice this year, once with a live-action version available now on Disney+, and once with a stop-motion animated feature that will release later this year. Bold moves.

Monday night I watched the live-action remake, a film featuring none other than Tom Hanks as the elderly Geppetto. Of course I thought it would be terrible, but as a matter of fact it was… okay. Not Top 365, but okay.

I’ll give credit where credit is due, and eat crow when crow should be eaten.
