    It's the payoff The Professional promised, but didn't deliver.

    So, it's Tarantino for the pedophile set?

      The thought that popped into my head was "huh, Lolita gun-kata?".

        Oh god, I thought I'd forgotten that Christian Bale monstrosity. Thank you for reinfecting me.

        (Actually, the gunplay in that is fun, if totally unrealistic. It's Christian Bale I couldn't stand.)

    Yay! We saw the presentation for this movie at Comic-con in July. Looks like they got distribution. It's going to f'ing RULE.

    The crazy thing is that this in an ongoing comic and it's only up to 7 issues! I can't remember an ongoing getting a film deal on so little material. But hey, it's Mark "Can Do No Wrong" Millar so why not?

    • jwz says:

      Is the comic any good? *

      * Please calibrate your opinion with other comics that are "any good".

      • NO. It is hideously bad even compared to other comics.

        (Good comics=Runaways, 1-20, Invincible 1-50)

          See that is the weird thing about comics, I love those that you mentioned, but while you hate Kick-Ass, I dug it.

          So here are a few more of my faves to maybe clarify my tastes:

          - Green Lantern
          - Green Lantern Corp
          - New Avengers
          - Booster Gold
          - Batman
          - Detective Comics
          - Dark Wolverine (and original flavor)
          - Walking Dead
          - Y - The Last Man
          - Usagi Yojimbo
          - Shadowpact
          - Superman

        Well, I read about 20-25 titles a month (not as rabid as some, I suppose), mostly superhero titles from DC, Marvel and Image. I've been reading them for close to 30 years and have seen plenty of gimmicky comics.

        That said, Kick-Ass is good. Reminds me of Wanted (which if you seen the movie, you still haven't read the comic), Invincible, and (to a much lesser degree) Watchmen. Of course most of it is the novelty of "not-so-super" superheroes and that may wear off in time (which is probably why they don't mind the limited amount of material). But, for what is there, in print, its pretty awesome. Check it out, most stores will have all the issues.

        Also (someone correct me if I missed anything) the title is unique in that it is creator owned, published on the Marvel Icon imprint and not in the standard Marvel "616" universe.

    Time Bandits! That made me laugh, yes.

    Looks a bit like "Gunslinger Girl" played for laughs.

    Is there something wrong with me if I didn't flinch at a little girl dismembering people but found her cursing disturbing?

  9. Well.. I'm gonna have to watch that. That is so bad.

  10. fayanora says:

    Oh HELL YES I have to see that!

  11. What the fuck did I just watch?

    Dammit, why do I wait so long with posts like this sitting in a tab, before I link to them? Removed Due To Terms of Use Violation. (The other video below still works, but isn't as good as a stand-alone. :)
