First: in the imaginary remake of Star Wars, your new Han Solo shall be . . .
Congratulations, Mr. Fillion! He and Ryan Reynolds were tied for most of the week, and in the end, Captain Reynolds only beat the Green Lantern by two votes.
Interestingly enough, I discounted Fillion for almost the same reasons that everybody nominated him—I thought Malcolm Reynolds was too similar to Han. As much as I love him, I didn’t want to just end up watching the Luke, Leia, and Mal show instead of the Luke, Leia, and Han show. But I do adore Nathan Fillion (well, who doesn’t) so I can’t be too disappointed. His involvement in any project automatically makes my interest go up.
Now, onto this week’s MMB Poll:
So, you have your favorite films, movies that you’ve revered for a long, long time, possibly since childhood. These films are sacrosanct. Nobody less than a very powerful deity should be able to touch these movies. And yet, say some total ass down in Hollywood is going to remake them anyway, just because he’s a greedy jerk who wants to fuck with your mind.
(Some friends may remember that I’ve asked a similar sort of question to this before, but I’ve changed/added a few of the choices, and I want to see if the original winner still holds.)
