Just forget the words and sing along

Well, I just have to pass along the day's biggest movie news. Ya know, when The Passion of the Christ became such a huge hit, people were predicting a resurgance of the religious epic. And now, it begins.

Plans are underway to re-make The Ten Commandments, the now-classic film about Moses. In the original, Moses was brought to life by Charlton Heston. No word on who's being lined up for this remake.

I think this is very unnecessary. I have seen the first one several times. Without it, I would have never passed Dr. Mundel's Introduction to the Old Testament course back at Augustana.

Oh, and we've also got a rumour about X-Men 3. What do you think of this: pop princess and reality TV star Jessica Simpson as the Dazzler. Apparently, Simpson sent the X-Producers an audition tape and begged them to give her the role of Dazzler. And now, apparently, she's got it.

For those who don't know or don't care, Dazzler is a much-maligned former member of the X-Men. She first joined the group back in the 1970s. She was a disco diva whose mutant power was she could create her own light show. I don't think she's a disco diva any more, but they've always kept her a struggling musician of some kind.

Next Issue...Razzle Dazzle
