Though Americans may think of squash as a stuffy Ivy League sport, the group's presentation punched holes in that perception. A teenager from the Bronx, Andreina Benedith, the USA's Under 19 urban squash champion, will help make squash's case on Sunday. Squash is the beach volleyball of racquet sports (minus the bikinis). At pro events, high volume music blasts at breaks during the matches. Its glass court can be placed just about anywhere indoors or outdoors and tournaments have been held in front of the pyramids in Egypt, along the Hong Kong harbor and in New York's Grand Central Terminal.

Yeah ok there have been the occasional instance where the remake surpasses the original (2003's Texas Chainsaw Massacre), Robin Hood (2010) and 2005's King Kong), more often than not it fails miles short of the original in every way. Nothing against Jackie Earle Haley, but this Freddy was really lacking in the charismatic department, which is what made Freddy Kardashian Krueger stand out from the rest of the horror icons. I just wish that they'd leave it alone (at least for a while anyway), and be more creative. <br>Source: http://www.ign.com/blogs/mrrobp/2013/09/06/has-hollywood-officially-run-out-of-fresh-ideas-for-movies/
