P.S. With all this talk of pasta robots, how did no one say "pastabot?"

The 5-star reviews this week reminded me of friends I have that like to tell me a movie is good by saying "I NEVER watch (insert genre here) movies, but I liked this one, so it's the greatest (that genre) movie ever". I see stuff like "Blow" and Boondock Saints", movies that look like or are clearly lifting from every other movie they look like, popping up in those conversations. Ohhhh, speaking of which, have you guys seen "Overnight", the documentary about the douchebag that made "Boondock Saints"? I'll have to go suggest that one on the right thread. It's a good movie, and probably even funnier to people that ARE still working in the entertainment industry...

I saw the movie way before I consciously sought out the Great Comic Books (sometime around the time I got serious about drawing pictures). Needless to say, hundreds of page of classic, innovative comics RUINED FOREVER.
Of course, by now I've realized that the whole point of film adaptations is to dilute literature with so much unprocessed cultural doodoo as to render it unfit for consumption by all future generations.
