I, for one, am very excited for Pineapple Express
If only it were all so simple! If only there were evil people somewhere committing evil deeds, an it were necessary only to separate them from the rest of us and destroy them. But the line dividing good and evil cuts through the heart of every human being. And who is willing to destroy a piece of his own heart?

Heck, I'd be exited about anything with the word "pineapple" in the name.

Did that movie have a different title at some point?

Yes! Watchmen ! So far it remains as the greatest graphic novel ever (IMHO) . Hmmph , that blurb didn't mention my old flame , uberHottie Carla Gugino .

I don't have much faith in it. Unless they do a trilogy, or something, there's way too much content for just one movie. What I'm most curious about is how they're going to do the "comic within a comic" from the source. That, combined with the fact that Zak Snyder strikes me as a "style over substance" director and the fact that all the character's, even The Comedian, look about 10-20 years too young, makes me think that this is going to be another "crap from a classic" movie, like so many movies based on Moore's brilliant work.

I REALLY want to see the Hobbit movies. LotR ftw!

The 6th HP movie! I'm soooo excited. Once the 7th movie comes out I might die happily (...Something else'll come around...)

There's a supposed Star Trek movie in the making, it takes place between the Original Series and the Next Gen. That's one I can't wait for.

TWILIGHT. I HAVE TO SEE THAT. I WILL NOT REST TILL I SEE THAT!!!

Kaylee: 'Cause I'm pretty?

It's a broken hearts parade
And I'm putting my heart out on display
There's no masquerade
Just a funeral march for love today
The band strikes up and they're playing a song
Dressed in black, and we're singing along to the
Broken hearts parade
I've never been better then I am today

Oh noes. Please, give me the damage... I knew they were going to make a movie, and I was cautiously optimistic that they might find someone competent to direct that didn't just make it into yet another boring comic book movie... but it sounds like it is not to be.

Yeah. It will be better, methinks. They can fit more content in, and the seventh has the most content.

Take what I say with a grain of salt; I hated Zak Snyder's other movies, but most of that was personal. I saw Dawn of the Dead as blasphemy, and I hated the source material for 300. From the previews, I could pick out some classic scenes, such as the Nite-Owl's ship above the rioting crowds, and the birth of Doc Manhattan. They seem to have gotten Rorschach and Doc Manhattan right on, at least appearance-wise.

My biggest complaint is that Ozymandias, who should be pushing fifty, looks twenty-five. Of all the characters, only Silk Spectre looks even close to the correct age.

Anyway, we may not even be seeing Watchmen, what with the lawsuit, so meh.

Is Moore suing again? The guy is a genius, but he's also a cranky old bastard, imho. I thought 300 was pretty bad myself. The only thing I really enjoyed about it was watching the young jock/thug crownd get into something that was so overtly homoerotic. I got lots o laughs from that. The thing about the Watchmen is, there is so much incredible content in that novel... I fear a movie will merely concentrate on style, losing what makes that book so damn good in the first place.
