Movie vs remake 1

Bang Bang Poster

 

In 2014 Bollywood made “Bang Bang”, a story about a thief who steals the Kohinoor diamond and the woman who he falls in love with  along the way. He gets her involved in all his problems which would be great if she were a spy but she’s just a regular woman who is looking for love. What a fun love story. Corny throughout but fun! Even has  some great dancing throughout!

In 2010, Hollywood made Knight and Day, the story about a double agent who stole a battery that can last forever and the woman he meets and falls in love with along the way. He gets her involved in all his problems which would be great if she were a spy but she’s just a regular woman who is looking for love. What a fun love story. Additional funny because it is actually a parody off all of Tom Cruise’s spy movies like Mission Impossible.

…..Good lord! How many movies are like this? ‘No Strings Attached’ with Natalie Portman and Ashton Kutcher came out at the exact time as ‘Friends with Benefits with Mila Kunis and Justin Timberlake. The first in January of 2011 and the 2nd in July of 2011. That is just too much.

‘Olympus has Fallen’ and ‘White House Down’ are my favorites however. How do you get a movie that close?

Yet it isn’t that strange. When I was in high school I thought of a good book where the moon moves closer to the planet, within 3 years a book had come out that talked about my same concept. Not as exact sure but still we all have ideas that can come around the same time, don’t know why, but it sure gives a fun moment for a good conspiracy theory.

There are a lot of Bolly-Holly crossovers so I wanted to bring up a few of my favorites over time. And to clarify, in this case, The Bollywood is better, though corny, and the Hollywood is a ton funnier.

Catch ya later.
