Tweetweek: "I'm not one of your fans!"

You know what's weird?I kind of miss Amy Adams.I was so exhausted by her in recent years with all the Hollywood Report roundtables and the easy awards track even for minor work that was forgotten instantly (Big Eyesanyone?).But the year off as well at that recent David O.Russell confessional has made the heart grow fond again.Funny how that can happen.See also Cate Blanchett's short break some years ago.

Which is why we'll start with Amy for this week's collection of a dozen favorite tweets.Tweets featuringA History of Violence,Carol,Vertigo,political hilarity,Joan Crawford and drag queens areafter the jump...

Accidental Rewatches: Hocus Pocus

Hocus Pocushas been on the telly a lot lately.I guess that means it's October?I started to watch but Bette Midler forced me away with her insane voicework.I swear every other word in every line of her dialogue she treats like it's the climax of the sentence AND the movie.It's just impossible to listen to.Good grief that movie is noisy.

And so much mugging!I'm surprised I still had a wallet by the time the credits rolled.

Remember when Sarah Jessica Parker was a silver screen sex symbol?That girl has had so many acts in her career.The comic but non-ironic sex symbol years were inbetween the memorable TV personas from the earlySquare Pegsgeekery and theSex and the CityMega-Icon status.Let's call it the "SanDeE*" years.What a strong stretch that was for her.So many enjoyable performances in mostly good films:L.A.Story,Ed Wood,Honeymoon in Vegas,Til There Was You,Miami Rhapsody,Mars Attacks!,The First Wives Club.

Do you think her career has a fourth act in it?

But back toHocus Pocus...when was the last time you watched it?And do you think the remake/sequel idea that was floated last year is ever going to happen?

Cast This!"Hocus Pocus" Sequel

A new rumor swirling round the internet this weekend is that Disney is considered a sequel toHocus Pocus(1993) that mildly amusing witchy family comedy starring Bette Midler,Kathy Najimy and Sarah Jessica Parker which was a much bigger success on video than it was in theaters.I remember liking it -- I love funny women trios as I just mentioned -- but wishing it was as funny as we all know all those actresses to be.

Movieholereports that Disney may fast track this new film for release next year and is calling itHocus Pocus: Rise of the Elderwitch./Filmreports that Disney is denying it entirely.The title sounds,to me,like an unecessarily complicated title when modern trends suggest that they'll probably just remake it (excuse me "reboot"it) and attempt a new franchise.

If you were making a magical comedy about three naughty witches,who would you cast?You needreallyfunny girls to live up to Midler,Najimy & Parker and as is the tradition with female comedy trios from9 to 5toWitches of EastwickandHocus Pocusand on through theCharlie's Angelsmovies,you need distinctly different personalities / hair colors.

If you don't includeAri Graynorin your triple wish list,I will never hire you to cast my own debut feature.Go!
