Minka Kelly is the ONLY reason why I'm even giving this a chance. We shall see how it plays out. The show will premiere on Thursday, September 22, 2011, the 35th anniversary of the debut of the original show.

I'm so **** exhausted from the Con today!!!!!

My day as follows....

Played Batman Arkham City. Hehehehehehehe. For review go to the Batman Arkham City Thread you bitches.
Played Gears Of War 3. Hehehehehehehe. For review go to the Gears Of War 3 Thread you dumb fucks.
Played SSX. Hehehehehehehehe. For review go to the SSX Thread you ball sucking Zombies.
DNP Battlefield 3. There was no demo on the floor. **** you EA!

NOP Saints Row The Third. In the EPIC fail category, SR3 gets the nod. They made people wait in line for half an hour (not me since I asked beforehand what the deal was), and then usher everyone into a small room where, GASP!!!! you watch one of the floor people play it. **** you floor person!

They had a playable Demo for Mass Effect 3.......................across the trolly track and 3 blocks up. Sigh. Why wasn't this actually at the Con on the floor? Eh? Too far and too damn tired to walk even more just to wait in a line spanning a block. No thanks.  :o

They had to beg people to play Jurrasic Park. It looks bad.

Saw a **** load of Celebs, the first being me when I caught my reflection in the mirror.  ;D

Saw the entire cast of Futurama. Katey Sagal looks so **** good for her age it's a frickin' crime.

Saw the cast of Fringe (again). This time Anna Torv, John Noble, Lance Riddeck, Blair Brown, Seth Gabel and Jasika Nicole. No Josuha Jackson sighting.

I'm tired and drawing a blank of a host of other people I saw. I'll come back when I can think straight again.....(Insert you **** jokes here if need be).

Comic Books & Art / Holy Terror - Frank Miller

Frank Miller's Holy Terror Trailer #1

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DZg4UOB2uCk&feature=player_embedded


Holy Terror? Try Holy Sh*t, that was horrible!!! What the phuck was this garbage? This is what Frank Miller spent all his time writing, not writing, writing, not writing, changing the character from Batman to The Fixer? Mr. Miller just outdid himself here. He made me forget the abysmal Batman: The Dark Knight Strikes Again. I didn't think that was even a remote possibility. I stand corrected.

Now about this pile of dung. First off, the art is horrible. It's a lazy man's, bastardization of his Sin City style. Second, things that take place within the panels are so chaotic that you really can't tell if you're looking at a foot or a hand or a car or what. Third, the main characters are poorly thought out both in design and background story. Forth, the story itself was lame. There was no set up at all. Let me put it this way. Go rent True Lies and then fast-forward all the way to the final 20 minutes of the movie and there you have it. Reading this "book" was just one long fight scene and then it's over. There is no set up and there certainly is no resolution other than.....

Oh forget it. I've already wasted enough of my time here. This is a Skip for me and the rest of humanity. So, if this is so bad, then how did it get even a half star rating? I'm glad you asked. You know when you buy a new car and it comes with that "new car smell?" Well, this "new book smell" is AWESOME, which is the only good thing about this $30 book. I feel sorry for anyone that actually pays good money for this. I'm just fortunate to know people that allowed me to borrow this book first.

It's now safe to say that Frank Miller has written more sh*tty books than actual good ones. :::sigh::: Well, it sure seems that way lately. I need to revisit Sin City and read something good of his to get the taste of this one out.



UPDATE:

I forgot to mention earlier about the books format. Just like his previous book, 300, this book is also in the widescreen format. This is what bugged me about 300 and one of the things that bugged me about Holy Terror. It's like Miller is purposely trying to hammer it in that he wants to change the status quo. It's been done countless times before and it's never worked with me or with the comic book buying public. It's just awkward reading a comic book like this. To me it also hinders the artwork itself. With the standard format, when you get a full shot of a character, the proportions look right. Do the same thing in a widescreen format and the character looks small because it has to fit within the reduce space on the page.

My 2 cents.

This to me is still the definitive fight scene of Jackie's career. He blew his wad on this and really hasn't been the same since. Although I do like some of the fight scenes in Rumble In The Bronx.

BTW, saw Stake Land tonight. Excellent. Very well made for a low budget flick. Lot's of character and depth for a vampire flick. I will try to post a review later this weekend.

Looking forward to reading your review. :)

It's not like they called it Schindler's List starring Optimus Prime.


I'd pay to see THAT for sure.  ;D

So are you endorsing that I see the Transformer movies? I thought The Rock was pretty good with a decent enough story to go along with the bangs. Bad Boys  was good, Bad Boys 2 was not. I caught Pearl Harbor on TV last week for the first time since I saw it in the theater and it was much better than I remember it being.

I wanna see what Michael Bay does with the remake to My Dinner With Andre. He will probably blow the table up along with everyone in the resturant within the first 5 minutes. If he does that, I will DEFINITELY pay to see it.  ;D

FYI, I have never seen My Dinner With Andre, so pfftt!!!  :P
