The 'Fesser passed along a link to perhaps the most, um, inspired Summer Movie Preview I've seen yet. [OK, it's tied with MTV's haikus.] It comes from the sinister genius that is The Face Knife, who had me at "The only way yesterday could have gotten more twee is if I were wearing mittens and holding hands with Jonathan Richman."
Basically, this Summer Movie Comparison Chart asks the tough questions, among them the following
- Age Inappropriate Casting?
- Is there a dog?
- Is there a god?
- Is someone tied to a chair or other piece of furniture and tortured?
Oh, yes, and there are footnotes, like this gem: "By my count, 2 onscreen beheadings, 5 implied beheadings, one character with all four limbs removed while alive, 2 characters who get their hands chopped off, the implied dismemberment of 4 corpses, and a radical wangectomy, if the wang should count as a limb." Yeah, buddy. Big if.
Do check it out.
