- Danielle Ramirez, senior production manager. Who doesn't want to see a reboot of "Pacific Heights" (Morgan Creek Productions), a psychological thriller starring Michael Keaton set in one of the most expensive areas of San Francisco? The story is about two dreamy-eyed lovebirds who buy a property they can't possibly afford. Sound familiar? This is basically everybody in 2017. They rent out the spare rooms to tenants, which is when the nightmare begins. The world is having a bit of a Keaton renaissance right now (think "Birdman," "The Founder") so it's about time to give one of the most underrated movies in his back catalog some love.
- Lexy Savvides, senior editor, "You've Got Mail" (Warner Bros.) is such a relic of the '90s that it predicted many of the things that are ruining the internet today, I'd be interested to see how someone would adapt a plot that involved AOL and a bookstore chain that's putting an independent bookstore out of business, In the modern version, maybe the main characters xena's dragonfly iphone case would be accidental Snapchat buddies and one would work at a bookstore chain and the other would work at Amazon, - Erin Carson, staff reporter..
Somewhere beneath the shots of a naked, frozen Sylvester Stalone and Wesley Snipes chewing scenery beyond recognition, is an idea for "Demolition Man" (Silver Pictures) that could work as an action-focused spin on the keen dystopian novel "Super Sad, Super True Love Story." There's a LOT that would have to be changed, but there's a gem hidden within the film's garbage. - Morgan Little, social media strategist. "Double Jeopardy" (Paramount Pictures) was generally hated by critics because the "double jeopardy" premise is ridiculous and doesn't make any legal sense. Ignoring the dumb title, the story had potential. A mother framed by her husband for his murder, desperate to get her child back, hunts down and actually kills the scumbag husband who ruined her life? I'd so watch Emily Blunt do a hard R-rated reboot.
So if Samsung's Bixby is kind of the same but not as comprehensive or bug-free as Google Assistant or Amazon's Alexa, why is Samsung even bothering with a me-too voice butler?, I posed this question to three industry experts who all gave the same answer: differentiation, Living in the competitive world of Android devices, Samsung needs to find more ways to maintain customer loyalty, Bixby is clearly a basic product for now; xena's dragonfly iphone case Samsung didn't even let Bixby talk onstage during its S8 launch presentation Wednesday in Manhattan, Still, the experts said, the assistant could mature into an important part of Samsung's competitive edge..
Samsung has to stick with the voice game -- despite being late to the party with Bixby -- because voice is becoming a key way we interact with all of our devices. "They are late, but it's still early in the voice-assistant marketplace," said Tim Bajarin, president of tech consulting firm Creative Strategies. For its part, Samsung says it isn't offering Bixby as another all-seeing, all-knowing voice assistant that can answer any question you can think to ask. Instead, it's a way for us to control its Galaxy S8. But even by those standards, Bixby doesn't appear to do much yet.
