"Blue’s Clues" Return Sparks Hate From People Who Won’t Watch To Begin With

In case you missed it, don’t care, or simply live in denial, Nickelodeon classic Blue’s Clues is making a comeback. While the unblinking, soul-crunching stare  beloved host Steven Michael Burns is a difficult phenomenon to replicate, it seems as if reboot host Joshua Dela Cruz has dedicated himself to capturing the spirit. Does he blink? The answer is no, no he does not. That in itself should gain the reboot a few points. Yet people who will likely never watch a single episode the rebooted series have taken to Twitter to complain about its existence, questioning how the sanctity the original could ever dare be tampered with. 

Of course, Blue’s Clues likely holds sentimental value for many who continue to view their childhood staples through a nostalgic lens. Yet the reboot has elicited several strong responses, with many criticizing the decision to go with a fully-CGI Blue; not only that, but the pining for former host Steve has also emerged as a strong point contention. Still, newcomer Josh appears more than capable filling in, and to see him torn down by people who won’t even watch the updated series to begin with raises many questions about the current state affairs. Still, it’s not all bad, as some have found his casting inspirational, especially where television representation is concerned. 

Either way you stand, Blue’s Clues is set to return in the imminent future. Expect many references from Ski Mask The Slump God to follow.

A "Saints Row" Movie Is Reportedly In Pre-Production

Today, Deadline has reported that director F. Gary Gray (Straight Outta Compton) is in the process developing a cinematic adaptation the outlandish video game series Saints Row. The games, which have spawned four installments, centers around the Third Street Saints and their quest for hood dominance. It’s unclear whether the film will be borrowing from existing plot points or simply drawing inspiration from the rich setting – either way, all signs point to this one moving forward. 

A "Saints Row" Movie Is Reportedly In Pre-Production

One has to wonder, however, if Saints Row can separate itself from the lingering “video game movie” curse that seems to permeate. From Super Mario Bros to Bloodrayne to the doomed and sunk Bioshock to the non-Persian-led Prince Of Persia, video game flicks have proven time and time again to misfire across the board. While there’s occasionally charm to such films as Silent Hill and Resident Evil, we have yet to see an effort even remotely resembling…a good movie. Many gamers have been left wondering whether such film adaptations are even needed at all. With excellent voice acting from performers like Nolan North and Troy Baker, many video games already feature compelling and well-realized narratives as it stands. 

And yet, F. Gary Gray is a capable director, and one has to wonder whether such a zany franchise as Saint’s Row might spark a few creative brainstorming sessions in the writer’s room, at the very least. Do you have any expectations for this, if and when it does arrive?
