So, did the DVD thing this weekend; rented LOTR and Kung Pow!
LOTR is how Final Fantasy: The Spirits Within should have been done. Literary geek I am not, so I assume mythril armor is mentioned in the book. A movie is always good when the ending makes you ask "*THAT'S* how they end it?" and want more.
Kung Pow!, OTOH, has a good idea, but it's not fully executed. Steve Odekerk is hit-or-miss, in my opinion. When he's on, he's a great writer. When he's off, it's boring. There were maybe three or four times when I laughed out loud, and that's it. I have the feeling that Master of Disguise might be the same way.
The wife is watching Kate and Leopold as I type, and it's hard seeing Hugh Jackman in his get-up; I'm wanting him to turn into Wolverine at the drop of a hat.
One thing I am worried about is this, Joss Whedon wrote this show, and it kicked ass. Joss Whedon also wrote 'Once more with Feeling', and it kicked ass. But last year, that was the one stellar show. Will the other writers pick it up this year?
