I agree wholeheartedly. It was too long. Too gratuitous. Too…well, too much blue penis, for starters. Chalk it up to me being a total comic book ignoramus, but I expected more battle scenes…more action…less drama. I wasn’t expecting what I got. And wish I had paid less (or not paid at all).

Wouldn’t recommend it to a friend, but I don’t really have to. The marketing geniuses made it look like X Men on steroids, which is partially to blame for my unmet expectations.

Ahhh well. Live, learn, save the 9 bucks next time. 🙂

Man, you got a better deal than me. I got a small popcorn and it was $5.75.

I love Mystery Men. Just had to say that. Okay, except for Ben Stiller. I have never been able to jive with him. But The Bowler (and her dad!) have always charmed me. So did the pithy sayings.

I am much in the same mind as you re: flashbacks. I like them muchly. I put them in some of my books, maybe even to excess.

And, of course, THGGttG is AWESOME. Especially the petunias.

I loved The Comeback on HBO! The way Lisa Kudrow could me feel so freakin’ sorry for her, that was brillant acting and writing. The writers (that were actors) on that show were so mean! I wanted to punch them so bad.

My favorite scene you ask? Like you have to ask, when she was that cupcake thingy in her dream… “Fatty fat fatty” And the fur “beaver coat” scene that was pretty funny too.

What a great show, why did it only last one season? Now I’m sad.

“Mystery Men was funnier”

That pretty much sums it up. 😉

Mystery Men was a comedy, though. I’d say go read the book.

I loved all of those movies, too.

Oh, and Monty Python and the Holy Grail!! When God says, “Every time I try to talk to someone it’s ‘sorry this,’ ‘forgive me that’…” Pure existential genius.

How much I loved Mystery men. I think I’ll take a pass on this one. 🙂

Hitchhiker’s Guide one of my all time favourites.

LOVE Hitchhiker’s and Adams’ style.

I’m still writing my Watchmen review blog post. Actually, I’ve had it completed for a week now but don’t have Photoshop on my newly installed laptop and have been trying to do my special graphic effect in Gimp (open source photoshop).

I will say here at least that the best part of Watchmen was the previews – Star Trek, X-Men Wolverine, Terminator. wheeee! That, plus how awesome the movie theatre I saw it in is (alamo drafthouse – if ever in Austin, you must try it out)
