Gina Vivinetto’s Greatest Hits

The “G-Force” movie trailer

If you were a little kid in the early 1980s, you came home from school and watched the afternoon cartoon Battle of the Planets on TBS. The cartoon was an English version of the Japanese classic Gatchaman, in which five weirdly-costumed adolescent superheroes called G-Force battle in space to save the world.

I guess Battle of the Planets was not a faithful enough adaption of the original Japanese cartoon because it was eventually phased out and replaced by G-Force: Guardians of Space. I never saw this show because by that point, I was a full-on teenager and too busy listening to Jane’s Addiction and smoking Marlboro Lights.

So now it’s time for G-Force, Hollywood’s “live” version of the cartoon, to make its way to the silver screen. Take a look at the trailer:

Wow. That sucks. It looks like every other cheesy Disney live version flick. What’s with the Pussycat Dolls tune? The Pimp My Ride reference? And where did the guinea pig come from?

This looks worse than the Speed Racer remake. Congrats, Disney! You’ve
ruined another of our childhood memories.
