I’m not a petty person so when I say I didn’t intend on bashing a bunch of hot topic kids on this website please know that I mean it. I only intended on going there to look at some new “promo” pictures that the movie company put up and get a good laugh, but what I saw quite frankly annoyed me to the very core. Something had to be done. People were actually PRAISING this movie. More specifically for how accurate it looks. So i just had to log in and see what was up, and to ask a few questions. I’ll post screen caps after the break.
So I’m pretty sure this is old news but there is some comic con footage on youtube from The Spirit panel, and its pretty damn horrible. As a guy who likes the spirit its just horrible, and there are too many things to complain about. And you can read Erica Henderson better describe why this is awful on her blog here. What I will say about the trailer that I enjoyed was that Miller stayed true to the comical tone of the story and the fighting, but thats about it. In the story The Spirit isn’t a master of all martial arts like say Batman, he’s just a brawler more along the lines of Indiana Jones and will just throw haymakers. The humor in the comic just doesn’t translate well into the “gritty noir” setting Miller has made for himself, and comes off more as a parody film like “Super Hero Movie”, “Epic Movie”(vomit), and so on. Don’t take my word for it, see for yourself after the break. Continue reading
Today we have one of my personal favorites, a music video by Norse god Gunther and Samantha Fox entitled “Touch me (I want your body)”. The video is amazing on multiple levels, and the song has so much artistic credit as well. Here we have man-god Gunther expressing his yearning for any kind of human contact, while at the same time fearing rejection for showing such vulnerability. Samantha Fox’s role demonstrates the journey though relationships and ultimately life as made clear by her crawling from her house all the way to Gunther’s bed.
…ok I just bullshitted all of that, but anyone can sound intelligent if they just throw in a five dollar word here and there. 🙂
So the entire week consisted of me just vegging out in front of the television watching the olympics until I’m forced form my seat by something less important like “my job”. A few things do come to my attention though after watching the events this past week. How the hell did the likes of volley ball, water polo, and wallball become main events? Either way it seems like the U.S. has Phelps syndrome once again and it looks like Lezak is going to get his moment in the sun, he apparently hung out with Lebron James during the games as well. It looks like the olympics are already living up to the hype, and I’m just hoping my favorite events are as impressive as swimming and gymnastics have been so far.
