HATE IT! Cinematic Cheese

A true sign that Hollywood is running out of ideas....

A remake of the 1980 Academy Award® nominated film 'Ice Castles'!

Say it isn't so!!

The original, starring then-teen heartthrob Robby Benson & the little known Lynn-Holly Johnson, was late 70's cheesy goodness. A promising figure skater suffers a debilitating head injury yet continues to skate through her blindness...yep, back then anything was possible!

The movie was really movie-of-the-week fodder but still had just the right amount of romance, plus that Oscar® nominated song 'Through the Eyes of Love' that it managed to garner quite the cinematic following...obviously enough of one to make Tinseltown execs see $$ signs in a remake.

I'm guessing this rerun went straight to DVD. For those interested, it's released today for your maudlin viewing pleasure. Me, I'll take a pass.
