Dear Remember When,

Disney made the movie Escape to Witch Mountain about two orphan kids not from this planet, who realize they have "special" powers and become the target of a scheezy millionaire who wants to exploit them? A widower helps the children escape to their space ship in the depths of Witch Mountain while the children help the widower recover from the loss of his wife...aww...nothing like a classic 1975 Disney movie. Below is a trip down memory lane for those who are nostalgic.



...well...remember when Disney decided to remake it for the new generation and call it Race to Witch Mountain where (according to IMDB) "A UFO expert enlists the help of a cabbie to protect two siblings with paranormal powers from the clutches of an organization that wants to use the kids for their nefarious plans."

Gag me.
Especially when the cabbie is none other than Dwayne Johnson aka the Rock.

Props to Disney for trying to make $.
Boo to Disney for rehashing the same material - nothing will beat the 1975 version - nothing.
