An important anniversary, my arrival in Quincy, almost surprisingly passed yesterday without my recognizing it. The year was 1978 when I got a call out of the blue from a Gary Schmedding of WTAD Radio and KHQA-TV on a warm May day.
Last year in watching, listening or reading the news over the Memorial Day weekend, I would have thought it was November 11 instead of Memorial Day. Memorial Day, originally called Decoration Day, is a day of remembrance for those who have died in our nation’s service.
Everything that goes wrong in Poltergeist stems from an act of desecration; the building of a cookie-cutter housing development on top of an old cemetery. Some might find the sheer act of attempting a remake of Poltergeist similarly disrespectful; the 1982 original is something of a masterpiece of suburban terror. But if viewers can look past the sheer audacity of attempting another Poltergeist, they’ll find a solid modernization, the cinematic equivalent of a decent cover version of a great rock song. It’s totally superfluous, and not nearly as satisfying as the original, but well-performed and effective in its own way. It’s nice (or, in this case, deeply unsettling) to revisit an old classic in a new arrangement.
Memorial Day Weekend in Hannibal will be fun. Twain on Main will be taking place downtown May 23-May 24, and even though the regular season for the Hannibal Cavemen does not officially begin until May 27, the team has announced a special exhibition game at Clemens Field on Memorial Day.
