    I'd recommend you just watch Big Man Japan. I'd have to explain basically the whole movie to spoil the ending for you, and it wouldn't be anywhere near as awesome in raw text as it is on the screen.

    Pretty much, I only saw an early trailer way back but forgot it and seeing this without any expectations, I was blown away.

    I lost my legs in Vietnam. Big Man Japan allowed me to walk again. I love you, Big Man Japan!

    Big Man Japan cured my infection of the Clap, brought my living god back from the dead, makes my white laundry whiter, and helps me on those days when I feel less than fresh.

    So, Marvel's attempt to bring movie/Ultimate Nick Fury into the 616 is to make him a new character that's white-Nick's son? Coooooool

    Yep. That's what the Battle Scars mini was all about.

    At the very least, Halle Berry's almost naked throughout most of it.

    I'll eventually watch Berry's Catwoman along with Steel and The Spirit.

    I haven't watched the latter two yet. I think I've seen bits and pieces of Steel but never the whole movie.

    I'm afraid to watch The Spirit because I love Gabriel Macht in Suits. I hear The Spirit's terrible and I don't want that to taint him for me.

    The Spirit is worth watching just so you can have a ton of jokes to tell about The Spirit. That movie can't go 5 minutes without something remarkably stupid happening.

    the spirit is amazing, it's just that no one gets it. they want it to be another blockbuster superhero action adventure; it's not. the spirit is a scary movie style spoof of superhero films, and if you look at it in that context it's brilliant.

    No, it wasn't. The Spirit is more than just a presumed dead guy in a mask and fedora.

    His comics had a tone and a style all of their own; classic, timeless stories that blended very adult-themed crimes with the exuberance and positivity of youth.

    To take that character and turn it into a Sin City-esque satire totally changes what he's all about.

    I wondered how long it would take for that to catch up to me. :o

    My perfect movie? Screenplay by Grant Morrison and Directed by Ingmar Bergman. :o
