Don't judge a book by its movie

Once upon a time, Steven Spielberg + Live-action Ghost in the Shell = Teh Awesome. These days, ol' Stevie has undermined much of his geek cred with crap like War of the Worlds.

This is why notions of a live-action Ender's Game or Rendezvous with Rama don't get me revved like they would, say, fifteen years ago. Despite the fact that the technology finally exists to do these books visual justice, I'm still chafing from the brain-rape that I, Robot and I Am Legend foisted upon me. (Seriously, Will Smith, WTF?)

That said, if Watchmen breaks my heart, I'm going Rorschach on somebody's ass.

Also, really nice to see that My Elves are Different is doing comics again. It's been too long. I may just have to join in their zombie shenanigans next month.


  1. I did not ever read the source material behind A.I. so I can only judge the movie on its own. I know I'm in the minority on this but I actually liked the movie.
