Michael Bay's upcoming Transformers movie.....cool or not cool? It looks like it could be fun. Lots of cool special effects and crap exploding....but its a movie about toys! I have kids. I don't need to pay to watch them play with Transformers. Last night I was horrified by the potential success of this movie...what if movies about toys become all the rage? Would we be subjected to Tim Burton's Candyland? Martin Scorsese's Yahtzee? I can hear the tag line now "5 mob families, 5 dice...only one wins!" Oliver Stone's Monopoly....from the creators of Saw comes "Operation the Movie!" 10 college age kids, a bag of pot and one crazy bastard yanking out their body parts....John McTiernan could do GI Joe with Bruce Willis starring....Steven Spielberg's Slinky starring Robin Wiliams.....the mind boggles....OH JEBUS...Boggle the Movie!
Burger King has the rights to the Transformers kids meal toys so I suspect I'll be sent on a few trips thru their hellish drive thru. I really think Mel Gibson missed out when he didn't ok Passion of the Christ product tie ins. How much fun would it have been for kids to reenact the last supper with action figures of Jesus and the Apostles....Judas with betraying karate chop action!
The NBA draft was last night...if ya missed it, nothing much happened. The Arena Football League playoffs start this weekend. I have zero interest but someone must. Broadcasts of the AFL regularly outdraw NHL games on TV.
Good response yesterday on the rocknroll genocide idea. I submit today for your consideration of their elimination: ZZ Top, Kiss sans makeup and post reunion, anyone associated with Yes, Phil Collins and any band that reunites without its leader under a similar name...for instance, Creedence Clearwater Revisited, ELO II (Electric Boogaloo) and the New Cars.
I finally got around to watching Lil' Bush on Comedy Central. I wouldn't say it was good...but Lil' Cheney is quite funny and I enjoy that Darth Vader is his dad.
Here now the news...
