Reinvention. Reimagine. Reboot


The first brunch of 2024 embraced the new year and all its possibilities with the theme : New Year? New You! Themes reimagined. It actually took the conversation down different paths. Some discussed reboots and others discussed remakes. Our small gathering was prefect for the topic (and many side quests along the way!) as we were able to build off each other a comments. 

Officer Julie started us off by discussing her love of the Sailor Moon remake: Sailor Moon Crystal (Netflix). She does intend to finish it. The same with the RWBY anime. She also recommends the She-Ra reboot (Netflix), and My Little Pony. 

Officer Anzia went next and explained that she took the idea to mean remakes and discussed Jane Austen’s Emma as the movie Clueless and Beatrice/Benedict from Shakespeare’s Much Ado About Nothing as Elizabeth & Darcy from Pride and Prejudice

Nuriko discussed her love of the Monster High remake and all of the 80’s cartoon remakes. She discussed the House of Wax remake from the mid-2000s and the Spiderverse Movies. 

At this point we had a side tangent regarding Pride & Prejudice and Zombies. If you’ve not read the book, you should. The movie is also highly recommended by Anzia and Julie.

Ami started off by talking about reboots & remakes that didn’t quite do the original justice. Death Race with Jason Stratham hit different and didn’t make the same statement. Coreman, the original director, took another run at the movie and it was even more different. Stepford Wives, Season of the Witch, House on Haunted Hill (Geoffrey Rush makes it), and Kung Fu the Legend Continues were all mentioned and discussed. 

Paola talked about the new Percy Jackson show on Disney+. It is a lot better than the movie and is truer to the books. She also discussed the Dragonball/Dragonball Z/Newest version. 

There were more tangents. We discussed The Finishing School series by Gail Carriger as it’s a steampunk finishing school where they train assassins. Classes there sound so much more fun! This YA series is in the same world as her Parasol Protectorate series.  It was a great brunch with wonderful (and very off topic) conversations.
