I saw the movie Tuesday. I enjoyed it. I am not as ecstatic as others but it's rare that I feel I can confidently recommend an action movie to my mother who is more of an intellectual moviegoer and would never bother with Marvel movies. In that sense, I am also glad it's not as gore as Mad Max 2 (for instance). I am not a big fan of the last third of the movie and its Devil May Cry-inspired level design, but I liked the simple overall concept of the fugitive caravan and a chase through memorable landscapes. More importantly, the action scenes highlight some issues with the recent director choices for Marvel and DC movies; those guys are better for filming banter than brawls. It was nice to see Mad Max in a theater whereas I don't mind waiting to catch up with Avengers 2 on a plane. It is possible I have shared this idea here before, so I apologize if I am repeating myself, but I am convinced (even more so after watching Mad Max) they should remake [URL=https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xzOnufYDhpo]Magnum, P.I.[/URL] with Charlize Theron as the titular Magnum, P.I.. She could be banging the same chicks, drive the same Ferrari, be helped by the same crew (just replace "Vietnam war buddies" with Irak or Afghanistan), have the same investigations in Honolulu, and the same Mike Post opening soundtrack (but remixed by Justice). They could have Higgins replaced by a cool granny like Betty White or Vanessa Redgrave, or John Cleese if he needs money for his next divorce. Charlize could be John Magnum's niece, visiting Honolulu because he disappeared, taking up his old job, and Tom Selleck would pop up in the season finale as a special cameo explaining he is undercover or running away from a crime he did not commit (or [i]did[/i] commit... I believe the original Magnum series ended pretty darkly for the main character). Let's consider we now live in times where [URL=https://twitter.com/SarahMGellar/status/604285522807128066]breakthrough mainstream lesbian scenes[/URL] have even heterosexual viewers feeling all nostalgic now. Who would not watch Lesbian Bad-Ass Magnum in 2015? Which actor would refuse a few months shooting a show with Charlize in Hawaii? I am sure someone at FOX, NBC, ABC or CBS is reading the MadMan's Café looking for clues on how to save their network from Youtube and Netflix. My gift to you.
