I am trying to ignore the M&Ms in my kitchen.
Ok, I am gong to go either read, write, or exercise… any of which is almost guaranteed to make me feel better about not eating the M&Ms. I hope.
But first a quick note on remakes.
A wise person once said that comparing books and the movies adapted from those books is like comparing apples and apple pie. They might have the same stuff, but they are vastly different mediums. (Ok, maybe that wise person was me).
The point is, sometimes an adaptation is well done, it hold true to the essence of the story. Sometimes it can do that while dismissing a lot of the original trappings of that story.
I have high hopes for the new adaptation of Annie.
Maybe because I LOVE the musical. I LOVE the Carol Burnett version.
And I really really hope to love this new version as well.
