best movie about comic books not yet written
We're watching Comic Book Villians, for the third time.
Why do I keep watching this movie when it made my skin crawl the first time?
Don't get me wrong, it wasn't totally bad. As a matter of fact, the first 45 minutes were sheer joy. And then it took this odd turn and kept going. It wasn't bad for a dark, twisted movie but I didn't want a dark, twisted movie.
I just wanted comic books. And comic book geeks.
That's it, I am going to write the ultimate comic book geek movie.
A couple of geeks (not all guys, either), a dirty old comic book shop, a crusty owner, lots of inside comic jokes and not a mention of Ted Rall. But definite mentions of all my favorite comics. Gratuitous shots of Madman figures.
I need a conflict. Oh yea! The damn card playing kiddies keep trying to push out of the comic store for their tournaments. 21 year old guys wearing Yu Gi Oh! shirts and trading their unemployment checks for Magic cards.
I need to start casting the movie immediately! To the Bat Phone! Hey, we should all write the movie together!
I see the NyQuil has kicked in.
