A Christmas Story 2 Blu-ray

Posted August 11, 2012 08:44 AM by Josh Katz

Warner Bros.In October, Warner Home Entertainment will bring A Christmas Story 2 to Blu-ray. This sequel to the beloved 1983 holiday favorite finds Braeden Lemasters (Easy A) stepping in for Peter Billingsley as young Ralphie Parker, a 1940s-era Midwestern teen who experiences one misadventure after the next during the Christmas season.

From Warner's official synopsis:

"The original, traditional, one-hundred-percent, red-blooded, two-fisted, All-American Christmas continues five years later with Ralphie (Lemasters), Randy (Valin Shinyei, This Means War), Mom (Stacey Travis, Traffic), and the Old Man (Daniel Stern, Home Alone). This time, Ralphie has his eyes fixed on a car. But trouble is sure to follow."

Warner's Blu-ray/DVD/UltraViolet Digital Copy combo pack presents the film in its 1.78:1 aspect ratio with a 5.1 DTS-HD Master Audio track. The disc's supplementary specifications are still unknown.

A Christmas Story 2 streets on October 30th.

Haven't they heard? You can't make a sequel like this without calling it a remake or reboot!

I can't believe the lack of ideas these days. There was so much more creativity in this industry 30 years ago. But we now live in a society where being awesome at something doesn't mean you have any chance of getting a job doing it. It shows in everything America produces.

Since Warner won't care to read, here goes: there are many talented filmmakers the world around that, if given the budget this potential turd may have cost, could become the next Christopher Nolan, David Yates or Peter Jackson. It's called taking a risk.

That said, it appears that instead of investing in a hypothetical future (which may be too big a risk), you choose to revel in past glories, based on marketing strategies and numbers because THAT speaks louder than the word "hypothetical". Well, whatever happened to the old Warner mentality which claimed that "making films for money alone is the best way to fail"? Oh yeah, my bad, THAT can go down the drain because it's a 40's mentality.

Keep it up, Warner, I can't wait to buy Ace Ventura 12: When Seniles Strike Back.

There already was a sequel made, taken from Jean Shepherd's writing. It was called "It Runs in the Family" (aka "My Summer Story"). I expect better from Warner Bros but sometimes they do throw me for a loop. "Christmas Vacation 2" anyone?

There was another movie about those same characters that was released in 1988, although it didn't take place at Christmas. It was "Ollie Hopnoodle's Haven of Bliss." It had a whole new cast though.

I won't lie. I thought A Christmas Story was overrated. Maybe it's because I didn't see it until I was like 20 or 21, but I didn't find it to be anything special. It's probably more so if you saw it as a kid because it holds a special place in your heart. But a sequel still seems like a ludicrous idea.

You know Jean Shepard and Bob Clark are spinning in their graves, plotting the death of all things Warner Brothers for this turd. It's not even a Warner Brothers film. It's an MGM title (not that that makes any difference). Why not leave well enough alone? That can pretty much be said for every movie being remade unless the original was really that bad (usually if it's being remade, the original has a devoted following). For instance, we've got Robocop being remade, another Jack Ryan reboot on it's way, and now I hear that Sony is going to make a theatrical release out of the beloved '80s sitcom A.L.F. I'm reminded of a scene from the film HIGH FIDELITY, where Rob Gordon (John Cusack) is getting ready to make a mix tape for a fan when he stops himself, grabs the tape and yells, "WHEN IS THIS GONNA STOP!!!!" That's how I feel about the constant reboots, re-imaginings, remakes, prequels, sequels, three-quels. My mother told me, and I'm sure told many of you, "If you can't say something nice, don't say anything at all." I am simply saying to Hollywood in general, IF YOU CAN'T COME UP WITH SOMETHING ORIGINAL, DON'T MAKE ANOTHER MOVIE. WE DON'T NEED MORE OF THE SAME. WE CRAVE SOMETHING NEW AND FRESH. THESE IDEAS ARE ANYTHING BUT. SO PLEASE STOP. There, I said it nicely.
