The Invaders are coming to remake your movies and only we can defend the Earth from the dreaded film remake.

Sep 27, 2017

Invasion of the Remake is returning to the Wonderful World of Disney with the comedy, family favorite The Absent Minded Professor (1961) and the remake Flubber (1997). The Absent Minded Professor stars Walt Disney legend Fred MacMurray in one of his most memorable roles alongside Nancy Olson, Keenan Wyn, Tommy Kirk, Elliott Reid and Director Robert (Old Yeller) Stevenson. With a line up like that the remake had to really step up. Bringing in legendary screenwriter John Hughes and Director Les (Blue Streak) Mayfield was a good start. But the inclusion of comedy legend Robin Williams with Marcia Gay Harden, Christopher McDonald, Ted Levine, Clancy Brown, Raymond J. Barry, and Wil Wheaton seems like a formula for success. But is it? This week we look at the chemistry of these films and see whose Flubber has the most bounce. So buckle up into your flying cars and listen to this week's episode The Absent Minded Professor versus Flubber!

The future never looked so good. Join Invasion of the Remake in their fur lined spaceship as we strip down, rethink, and remake Barbarella (1968)! Based on the Jean-Claude Forest comic series, Roger Vadim brings Barbarella to the big screen in what would be the first time a science fiction comic character had a feature film. It was also near the end of Jane Fonda's "first act" and one of the last of her sex kitten films. She would go on to Oscar winning films, political activism, and be a famous fitness advocate. But she wasn't alone in Barbarella, she was also joined by John Phillip Law, Anita Pallenberg, Milo O'Shea, and the legendary Marcel Marceau! So come on board, stay away from the Excessive Machine, and join us in remaking Barbarella!

A small town is being victimized and stripped of its resources by profiteers and villains. With what little they have they hire a small band of mercenaries to help fight off the evil plaguing them. Based on the screenplay and film by the acclaimed Akira Kurosawa, Seven Samurai, The Magnificent Seven takes that classic story from feudal Japan to the American old west.

Director John (The Great Escape) Sturges put an all-star cast together for the original 1960 version with Yul Brynner, Steve McQueen, Charles Bronson, Eli Wallach, Horst Buchholz, Robert Vaughn, Brad Dexter, and James Coburn. That filmed spawned three sequels, a television remake and television series. Director Antoine (Training Day) Fuqua would bring the Seven back to the silver screen with Denzel Washington, Chris Pratt, Ethan Hawke, Vincent D'Onofrio, Byung-hun Lee, Manuel Garcia-Rulfo, Martin Senmeier, Haley Bennett, and Peter Sarsgaard.

Invasion of the Remake puts on their dusters and travels back to a time where seven men dared to take on an army. Are both movies magnificent or will one be a misfire? Join Jason, Sam and Trish on a ride only Invasion of the Remake can take you on this week's episode.

The God of Cookery is a wonderful comedy written, directed, and starring the amazing Stephen Chow along side Karen Mok, and Vincent Kok. What is it you ask? Think of it as Iron Chef if the chairman was an arrogant jerk, who can't cook, but learns to do it once he has been dethroned while learning humility along the way. Join Invasion of the Remake as we try to remake our first foreign film for a Western audience. Can it be done? Download this week's episode to find out.
