    ....really?

    -really?
    The book was surprisingly entertaining and well-researched. Unfortunately, I know the movie will suck. It'll be less Civil War set piece and more standard summer slasher flick, I'm guessing.

      This one time in high school I mistakenly turned in an assignment in which the first half was the final, polished pages and the second half was notes, half-developed ideas, and doodles.

      I had not thought about that in thirty years until last night, when I saw Prometheus.

        WWII "morale booster" Japanese movie by Akira Kurosawa. It borders on propaganda but it's an ok movie. Far from his top 10 though. Follows an optic lenses factory and how one must sacrifice for the greater good. Akira was apparently asked to do a movie to increase morale in Japan so that is why he did this one.
        Never really developed a taste for tequila. Kind of hard to understand how you make a drink out of something that sharp, inhospitable. Now, bourbon is easy to understand.

          Followed this up with a re-watch of another great cultural movie: Airplane II. Classic.

                    ThanksKilling.

                    Murderous turkey on a rampage. Yup. It's bad (and from what I know about the movie, it's supposed to be bad, unlike other B-movies that actually "try" to be good).

                    Worth a look if you like that sort of thing. It's just over an hour long, so you wouldn't be wasting that much time. I found it somewhat amusing.

                      I just realized that I never saw Sherlock Holms 2. Must be slipping. Thought the first one was pretty good so I'll have to track that one down somewhere this week to catch up on it.

                          I'd really like to see that but no theater around me is playing it. The same thing happened with Tinker Taylor Soldier Spy though that did finally show up around here a few weeks after it was everywhere else so maybe I will get lucky.

                            Skip it and watch the new BBC series instead. Way, way better than that steampunk Robert Downey crap. The first three episodes are on Netflix instant streaming.

                              It seems like that movie had endless, heavy, long promo hype and then stayed in theaters for about half a second. I don't think you're slipping.

                                It's not the Steampunkness that makes the Downey SH terrible, it's scripts and plotlines written for thirteen year-old C students with ADHD. The production values, OTOH, are gorgeous. I don't blame RDJ, either. I think he's actually a talented and entertaining actor who occasionally stars in garbage to finance the rest of his career (c.f. Depp, J. and Martin, S.)

                                Holmes and Dracula are the most often reimagined characters in English language movie history. The odds are there will be turkeys in there, particularly from studios used to making stuff like That's My Boy.
