I watched one whole movie so far but I took a break to write about it and some bad cartoons. If you missed it head on over to my other blog and read about the ultimate 1950s icon!
So...Watchmen? We're not getting it where I'm at for a bit and I don't know if I want to see it or not, I'm so conflicted! I think I'll just read the book again. Did you know Black Hole is getting made into a movie? That just pissed me off. Black Hole is perfect just the way it is, a movie would only take away from it. You could say the same thing about Watchmen too I suppose. Grumble grumble. Sometimes I wish comics would have stayed underground, when cool stuff comes up like that, that a certain group of people have liked for a long time, it can mean pain and heartbreak for dedicated fans. Like when grunge started to get popular and was subsequently ruined and died a horrible death. Oh well, at least live action version of old cartoons seems to have died off. At least I hope it has. I didn't see that awful looking Chipmunks movie, but the trailer made me want to vomit. Seriously, it had the characters eating shit! How much more horrible can you get?
If I was going to make a movie out of an old cartoon, I would make it ridiculously dark and violent. El-Kabong would smash skulls open with his guitar and Captain Caveman would rape everything that moved before going down in a hail of gunfire. I won't even say the things I'd do to Scrappy-doo but they would be well deserved. No punishment is harsh enough for that annoying sob.
So what was my point originally? I have no idea. I'm kind of high on sugar right now and just wanted to write. I'm glad I still have hands. If I didn't I would have to type and use a pen with my toes. Or my teeth. Did any of you see Freaks? Theres a no armed lady in that movie that eats with her feet. Its awesome. She was kinda cute too...
I'm gonna go rock out to some Darkness now, stay hep you cool cats!
