Sorry, I ended up having a (sort of) busy day @ work with really nothing at all, but the point is that I wasn’t bored. Now that I’m at home, I have all sorts of other crap to work on, so I’ll be brief.
I have long heard rumor of a Silver Surfer movie that was due to follow in the longer and longer line of Marvel heroes brought to the big screen. As with any comic book hero, the key is try to bring the more “human” nuances of these well-developed characters to a new medium in such a way that they will appeal to a wider audience.
The failures in this area of the respective production staffs of Daredevil, The Hulk, and Fantastic Four (particularly that last one) could not be more complete.
You can imagine my dismay, then, to see a trailer for the Silver Surfer movie, which will be delivered as a sequel to 2005’s Fantastic shit-storm.
Pretty soon I’m going to have to stop going to comic book movies.
Ah well, off to clean downstairs and watch Episode 2 😛
