Taking the White House by force has become all the rage. I hope this isn’t giving any failed candidates any ideas. There is the occasional bit of déjà vu, but thankfully the plots are different enough not to make that too much of a problem. I still wouldn’t advise watching them as a double feature, though.
The other day, I mentioned to someone that this movie was coming out, explaining that it was a prequel to The Wizard of Oz. The reply I got: “Isn’t that Wicked?” Research shows that Wicked is in fact a prequel of sorts, so I guess now there are two, because there’s certainly no continuity between movie and musical / novel, not even in the names of the characters. Someone needs to take charge of this mess and decide what’s canon and what isn’t.
Longtime readers (Hey, you never know, I might have a few of those) may recall that I described Sunshine as being a little like 28 Days Later in space, because so many of the same people worked on both films. Now we have Quarantine, which is 28 Days Later in a Los Angeles apartment building (the darkest apartment building on earth), only without any of the same actors or crew, and not quite as good.
