Bad Ideas and Good Ideas

OldboyImage via WikipediaBad Idea: Stephen Spielberg and Will Smith plans to remake the modern cinema classic Oldboy, Park Chan-Wook's violent ode to identity. Granted, Oldboy is one of my favorite films of the last ten years, but it would be a bad idea in any case. It's kind of like if someone decided to remake Reservoir Dogs starring Mylie Cyrus and the Olsen Twins, directed by Chris Columbus.

Good Idea: Turning Before Night Falls, the brilliant autobiography of gay Cuban novelist Reinaldo Arenas, into an opera. The piece will have its world premiere in 2010; if there was ever an artistic reason to travel to Texas, this could be it.
