If you're not catching the Dudley Do-Right reference, you're not watching enough Boomerang.
...or Brendan Fraser movies...
I would like to see The Italian Job this weekend, if only because F. Gary Gray is behind the lens and because I really enjoyed The Negotiator. I know going into the theater that it will not be better than the 1969 original and that the obligatory Mini car chase will feel more like a car commercial than a true action sequence benchmark.
Still, I have to see it. Anyone who can get Mos Def and Seth Green in a movie together deserves something.
I would lump Ed Norton in that group, but in several recent interviews, he's explained that his participating in the film was a contractual obligation and not one of choice. That sours things a little for me, because I'm a big fan of Ed's. But it bringing the whole "mustache issue" into sharper focus. No question the thing looks like an anemic caterpillar resting on his lip, but knowing Ed, it's an "actorly touch" he integrated into the character to piss someone off. If anything, I'll see the movie for him. Even when he's bad, he's better than most. I could give a damn about Mark Wahlberg or Charlize Theron.
That said, my number one priority this weekend is seeing Finding Nemo. I'm a Pixar NUT and can't wait to see what they've cooked up this time. It'll be interesting to see how close they can get to mimicking sea life with computer graphics. I imagine pretty darn close.
Expect a Nemo strip on Friday.
I dunno. The chase scene look good and they put together and interesting cast...
But I can't figure out what the deal is with that weasely little moustache Ed Norton is wearing. I find it really distracting.
Well, they could have done a lot worse.
I'm sorry, Mr. Whiplash. But we're looking for someone with a little more sex appeal.
CURSES! FOILED AGAIN!
