I'm so sick of classics being modernized,and revised to fit in with this modern low rent piece of shit society we are living in. My sister and I went to New York City when I was 10 years old many moons ago. We went to see Annie on Broadway ,and then we went to have dinner at Delmonico's after the show. The whole experience was truly exciting for me and it is something I will I will always treasure. remakes like this is trash ,and it is not true to the vision of the creator of Annie. What next, are they going to modernize all of the art work by Rubens, Monet, etc.? This pisses me off! leave things ALONE!! If they don't like it then screw off!!! If Annie was good enough for people in the last 80 years, it should still be acceptable.

I always thought "Annie" was total shit anyways, so any changes that occur to it can't be all that bad. That Carol Burnett movie was easily one of the worst transcriptions of a Broadway hit, right alongside "Mame". This is hardly an untouchable classic.

How many fucking times did you hear an Andrea McCardle wannabe belt out "Tomorrow?" on every fucking variety/ talk/ whatever show for the decade after Annie came out? I don't want to go through that again. I don't want to be sent a million links to a million youtube videos of kids doing belting out that saccharine crap all over again. A hip hop version would be an improvement. If nothing else, you wouldn't need to sing to torture your audience.
Even better would be an interpretive dance ballet with no sound whatsoever

WHY is Jay Z so rich and famous? He's a completely awful rapper, he's not as good as Run DMC or even the Beasties, Is saying "yeah-uh, yeah-uh" continuously, actual talent?
I am serious, I don't get Jay Z's fame at all. As a native New Yorker, I am even more baffled, because most native New Yorkers demand excellence in pretty much everything we buy!
Is he a great business man? In the same way that talent-free Madonna surrounds herself with talented people? Jay Z also seems completely untalented. I remember reading somewhere that he said, music was just a way to make money, he approached the music business like drug dealing!
He stated he had no real interest in music, this is basically the same statement Madonna made many years ago, she knew she couldn't become a multi-millionaire from dancing, she then chose to sing, even though she realized she didn't have much of a voice.
Jay Z has famous actual singers on his recordings and he uses top notch touring and studio musicians, take all that away, seriously, what is there? He also samples, A LOT. Where is his talent? He's not charismatic like Snoop Dogg or many other rappers who seem to have an appealing image or a schtick which appeals to many.
I don't get Jay Z's appeal, besides minimal talent, he's not a handsome man and is certainly not charismatic. Please, enlighten me!
TIA and spare the snark. If you honestly can not articulute why this man is extremely rich and famous, don't bother.
