I Spy (2002)
Did the filmmakers even watch any of the 60's I-Spy series?
The series I-Spy was a great tv show about two competent CIA agents.One was a white man who had the cover as a tennis bum.The other was a black man who was the trainer of the tennis bum as a cover. the movie made both characters idiots .Only one was an actual agent and he was a bigger buffoon then the non-agent.the names of the tv characters were used but the races of the characters having the names was reversed.
As a fan of the series , the whole thing was a big Fu to the makers ,cast and fans of the classic tv show it was "based on" . that is if based on means use the title and names of the main characters and have no resemblance past that.
Even Malcolm McDowell ,one of my favorite actors couldn't save this piece of crap.
The Gong Show (2017)
A good reboot
I am a fan of the original Gong Show from the days that Chuck Barris put in on TV in the mid 70's and am probably one of the toughest critics of any reboots of the show.I did not like the 80's version or the Extreme Gong Show.So when I decided to check out the 2017 version,I expected not to like it.
However, it surprised me.The set ,the style the mood and most importantly the acts were reminiscent of the original .The acts had the crazy feel that I thought would be lost in any new versions of The Gong Show.
The weak link, in my opinion , is the host. He is kind of lackluster ,but that doe snot lessen the show for me.
It is definitely a good 21st century version of The Gong Show.
