I don’t think it’s particularly awe-inspiring. Doesn’t use Ed Norton to do anything much, you know. However, after emo-hulk from Ang Lee, this one looks very much bad ass in the action department. Two huge monsters going at it in the middle of a street. Yep, buying tickets.
Saawariya, as I pointed out elsewhere, is a terrible, terrible film. Raja Sen, my friend, (to his utter and unfettered glee) much hated film critic, screenwriter, and all round movies guy agreed with me. Sanjay Leela Bhansali has committed the crime of Hubris, and Raja decided to get back at the man as only the people can.
This film is the result of his warcry:
Watch, and forward to all who share the pain.
MAN, I am so kicked about this film. I know, I know, Zack Snyder has not proven himself to be an ace, but he does have a great visual eye. I mean, 300, hell. So yeah, here we are, with the first set pictures of Watchmen, and I have shown you the one WITHOUT Rorschach, because this is brilliant. It’s got tiny details exactly as Alan Moore’s manic obsessive head spewed onto the page. There are more pics, one of course with Rorschach, how can you not have one, but also some nice detailed shots of a bus stop with the Gunga Diner posters and the actual Gunga Diner too.
The more I see it, the more I understand that Snyder gets the imagery of the book down pat. No detail was too small for Moore, and so it isn’t for Snyder. Whether he gets the rich thematic context of the book is something that I won’t be able to tell until I see the film. But ho, don’t let Beatzo dissuade you from gawking at the pictures. C’mon, you know you want to . This is the comic book geek’s pr0n and you know it.
While I absolutely don’t like to bugger around with your RSS feeds, all 12 of you, but there is something so perversely funny about the following video that it makes me LMAO, ROTFL, and all other sorts of LOL. So here it is, FYI and FYC:
The story of Half Life 1 and Half-Life 2 (sans Episode 1 and episode 2 of course) in sixty secods. There you have it. Don’t tell me I don’t love you, you Portal playing Team Fortress 2 hating monkeys.
I hate to do this to the sum total of 5 people who read this blog, but I genuinely thought that Harold and Kumar go to Whitecastle was funny. And now that the second one is coming, I have to post the trailer for all a ya to see. Trust me, it’s laugh out loud stuff. Yes, I said laugh out loud instead of LOL. I’m only human.
