Escape From Race to Witch Mountain

When I was a kid I loved the movie Escape to Witch Mountain. I wanted Tony and Tia to be my friends; I wanted a marionette stage of my own, psychic powers, and a secret star box that would explain that I actually came from a different planet. (I was a weird kid) Seriously, I loved that movie.

Now they have made this:

Why do they have to re-make beloved movies from the 70's? Are there no original ideas out there, or are they just trying to hurt me? Several years ago I watched the original Witch Mountain with my kids. They had a good laugh at the special effects, but enjoyed the story. They said there was no way they’d go see the new movie, I appreciate their solidarity.


  1. I used to watch that movie as a kid too! My girls have not seen it yet though. Its funny though, most people I've talked to haven't even heard of the original, so this new movie is original to them. Sad.

  2. I have to agree. The original movies are the best!
