If you know me, you know that one of my favorite movies is Barbarella. I'm very sad today because I just found out that John Phillip Law, who played the hunky, blind angel Pygar in the movie, passed away on Tuesday at the age of 70.

I'm even sadder to say that there's a remake in the works for 2009 with Rose McGowan in the lead role and... get a load of this... Shania Twain as the Black Queen. Good, sweet Lord. Anita Pallenberg was the original Black Queen. She's around 64 now, but I would put my money on her in a no-holds-barred streetfight with Shania.

That's one movie I will surely avoid for fear of it causing me to slice open a vein.

Enough with the freakin' remakes already.
