So before you read today's post, go ahead and pop over to my blog-buddy-person Ron's blog, If I Had A Blog, because it's his b-day and he not-so-wisely gave the keys to his blog over to The Widow Lady to make guest posts and we teamed up to give him
Bwahaha and such.
Moving on! The teaser trailer for Thor has hit the interwebs! Um, revel in it or somesuch:
Um, yeah not sure what to make of that. I like that they're keeping the SHIELD dude from the first Iron Man movie around for in-universe continuity, but I'm a geek and I like things like that. Also I like Anthony Hopkins as Odin. I would watch a movie that was just Odin's Badass Adventures starring Anthony Hopkins. Oh well. The guy playing Thor looks ok, but really only just. If he can string two sentences together he'll be decent. I wish we got some more looks at Loki because that character is kind of important as to whether Thor will suck or not. Next trailer, I guess.
In other news, remember that commercial where the cute baby talked about stocks and it was funny and then they added a bunch of other babies and it got annoying as hell?
Well now it's gonna be a movie. Yep. Because that is a wise investment sure to turn a terrific profit! Just ask the guys on the Geico Caveman show!
Well, at least they can be assured that the public loves talking baby movies!
I feel like if this picture and that Day of the Dolphin movie poster had a baby, it would be the best pictorial representation of this blog
So anyway, the short version: things based on commercials suck, and things based on talking babies also suck. This movie will be both those things. And also directed by the guy responsible for this festering pile of shit:
People have been saying "Hollywood's out of ideas" for ages. I'm starting to think they might be on to something
So yeah. But I'd hate to leave you on such a depressing note, so here's the teaser trailer for a new Hugh Jackman film called Real Steel about, wait for it, ROBO-BOXING BATTLES:
Drink it in. It's like the wet dream of every nerd who wanted to build a life-size death machine for their robotics tournament. It's like Transformers, but without all the things that make Transformers suck. Like jive-talking robots. Yes, robots are best when they are silent, beating the crap out of each other, and in the vicinity of Hugh Jackman.
At least it'll more fun than the baby movie.
This is Sugary Cynic, prepping for a Robo-Rumble and keeping a heads-up for falling Thors (the weatherman said there was a fifty percent chance) 'Night!
