How Random Babbling Becomes Corporate Policy

And we all take a breath and get over it...

Twenty-four years ago, Mark David Chapman shot John Lennon. The man is coming up for parole. And fans and little Yoko are in an uproar. Now if this guy had killed some random joe-blow and was coming up for parole, do you think anyone would care? Do you think the BBC would be running an article about it? I'm sorry, but if the parole board thinks he's safe- regardless of what people think- then he should be let go.

That said, let's move onto something far more interesting. I saw Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow last night. Bad _ass_. Go, watch it, as if you need me to tell you to. It was brilliantly visualized, and had the plot of a 40's era comic book- which is to say, it didn't have much, but what it had was pure fun. Giant robots and genetic monsters... what more can you ask for?

And reality? Pah! Check that at the door! We don't want reality; we want planes that can operate underwater, and silvery rocketships with boosters that will ignite the earth's atmosphere! We want Sir Laurence Olivier back from the dead to cameo as the villian.

In other words, it's the most fun $9 I've sunk into a movie in recent memory, and it almost makes up for the waste of cash that was The Matrix : Revolutions.

Now, on October 22nd, out comes Finding Neverland, which looks fantastic. If the trailer can make me sniffly, then the movie is going to be wonderful. I mean, Johnny Depp as J.M. Barrie- what more do you really need to know?
