Iron Man Has the Time of His Life
April 22, 2010

Seeing as Dirty Dancing is responsible for this little corner of the internet’s nom de blog, and seeing as¬†I–like every other hot-blooded nerd–am eagerly awaiting Iron Man 2, I’m all but bound by blogligation to post the Iron Man/Dirty Dancing mash-up because:

A) Those are the rules, and

B) According to this video’s description, “Iron Man and ACDC make any film better!! ūüėČ

So even though I’ve no idea what to do with this thing, let’s do this thing all the same:

Huh. ¬†Well, that happened. ¬†And now that it’s happened, let’s all pretend like it didn’t, shall we?

Yes, let’s.

Cheers to Videogum for pointing me towards EPICponyz for this nugget of insanity.

RIP, Patrick Swayze

Oh man, y’all. ¬†Patrick Swazye passed away yesterday at 57 after a 20-month battle with pancreatic cancer. It should go without saying, but this news is simply terrible.

Really?  REALLY???

I’m not one to take much stock in a story that first emerged from a Twitter feed, but that doesn’t mean I can’t be utterly outraged by the mere thought of it. ¬†So here are 140 characters (or less!) from Production Weekly¬†are likely to crush your soul:

Lionsgate is developing a remake of the 1987 classic “Dirty Dancing,” from a new script by Julia Dahl.

Of course, there’s a logical and immediate reaction to this bad idea to end all other bad ideas:

As is, this is already pretty much the most abysmal idea I’ve ever heard, and that’s not even considering about how I’m possibly biased because one of the movie’s most famous lines is directly responsible for this blog’s name. ¬†I’m most certainly am biased, yes, but¬†there’s also no denying that Dirty Dancing¬†is¬†one of the iconic pop masterpiece of the 1980s. ¬†You really can’t top Patrick Swayze and Jennifer Grey dancing to “Time of My Life,” so why the hell bother trying?

Also, the Dirty Dancing remake is being scripted by the woman responsible for this:
