wow.

January 2nd, 2009 (11:10 pm)

D.T. and I went to see SPIRIT tonight...

I mean I had heard the feed back
I knew it wasn't going to be IRONMAN
but holy crap on a cracker.

Seriously.

Did Frank lose a bet?

bad bad bad bad bad....

The kind of movie where it becomes enjoyable because the meager audience
begins to band together AGAINST it, and giggle.
When the couple behind us went *meow* at one point
we all just lost it.

Some walked out, but those of us who stayed had a hoot.

If I had been even the LEAST bit in a bad mood, I would have had the manager
forking our 18 bucks back while I throttled him.
(didn't catch it at ALAMO, and somehow I am relieved by that...)
But as it stood--it became a kind of fun communal experience.

Sorta one of those 'Holiday Miracles' where we all come together.

*laughing*

I almost didn't go see it because Frank Miller is the creative force behind the Spirit. But then, he fell from grace with me long ago. Don't know what was worse, the movie, or the steaming turd someone left in our laundry room. The guy at the box office gave me the senior citizen's discount. A mixed blessing, but I take favor where I find it.

The Wrestler, however, made last year.

Psst! Spacemummy!

Speaking about making last year, if you email me your USPS mailing address, I have a modest little CD for ya.

(Ginger seems to have survived her copy.)

Frank made such a huge mark on me when I was...

impressionable?

It is hard to disregard, even now.

I still stand behind my statement
that IRON MAN is the greatest Comic Book movie of all time.

Every element is balanced.
THere are those that exceed, surpass certain areas of the genre
but none, nope not one other...
NAILS THEM ALL with such balance.

Yup.

THE SPIRIT SHOULD NOT BE WEARING CONVERSE CHUCK TAYLORS!!!

Of course the Spirit would be awful.. Frank Miller is full of crap. He should be ashamed for what he's done to the character and the mythos. I shouldn't bring up All-Star Batman and Robin, BUT.. that book stands as being one of the worst attempts at "re-imagining" a character EVER. His lack of effort in what will be now known as his "dying years" is truly disturbing.

Beerland Texas!

*sigh*

I really really cannot argue any of these points.

I just, well...you know you have those friends who just dove off the end?
But you remember them when they were amazing?

When you run into them at the bar, years later--they look like shit
and you really don't want to sit and listen to what the story has now become...
but you do.
You lend an ear and you buy them a drink...
Because once upon a time, they rocked your 'Verse.

*shrugs*

Frank will always get a Lonestar outta me.
