As they say on the internet, LOLWUT?

I'm uncertain if this represents all my tawdry cinematic dreams coming true, or the greatest disappointment my world has ever known.

Which is my point exactly. Epic goodness or utter friggin' train wreck. I can't help but be hopeful.

Considering Steven Norrington's last directorial outing was "The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen", my expectations are somewhere below the Earth's core.

I liked LXG. Not that I thought it was a good movie, by any means, and at the end, I was sort of asking myself "What was that movie about?", but I enjoyed it. The story line here is a bit simpler, I think.

There are parts of that movie I'm very fond of, particularly the portrayal of Captain Nemo, and often Dr. Jekyll and his Hulk-like counterpart, Mr. Hyde.

The parts that don't work for me aren't worth dwelling on.

It was ambitious, if nothing else, so I have to give them that.

I'm more bemused by the fact that she thinks watching a movie five times in one year is a lot. Back in the day it was nothing for my friends and I to watch that movie five times in any given month.

Nick Cave... Well that's awful special. What qualifications does he have for crafting this project other than that he's Nick Cave? He's a goth icon, The Crow's a goth icon. I get it. But that doesn't mean he can write a good movie. Doesn't mean he can't either. But, eh... It's gonna take more than his name being attached to get me excited.

He recently did write a movie, actually. I haven't seen it, though, so I can't tell you if it's good or bad or indifferent. I do like the man's turn of phrase, though.

If you think of the story as a murder ballad, having Cave attached to the project starts to make more sense.

I remain somewhat skeptical. *The Crow* was a really important movie to me when it came out (although less so now), and I'm ambivalent about Norrington's other work, particularly the abomination that was LXG.

Hmm. Once you put it that way, now I'm more confident about it.

I also want to go watch The Crow again through my musicking filters. And add some Nick Cave to my karaoke setlists.

On reflection, my loathing for LXG is balanced or perhaps even outweighed by my love for the atmosphere of the first Blade film, which Norrington also directed. So there's that. Maybe if Mark Isham does the score for the Crow remake....
