Freaky Mondays

I love a good marketing ploy as much as the next guy. Especially one aimed at kids, and their parents. But sometimes, enough is enough.

What brought that one? Why the discovery of this picture:

I had flashbacks to that scene in Alien, where the monster comes ripping out of that guys chest.

Then I had flashbacks to Total Recall.

Still trying to figure out which one made me feel worse, but I'm thinking Total Recall.

Of course talking about flashbacks, StarWars.com has released an image of their new t-shirts in which they take a classic piece of artwork by Ralph McQuarrie and turn it into an abomination promoting their rather ugly characters from the Clone Wars television series.

It's one of those things which make me cringe upon seeing it.

In honor of that, I have created this:Well, I was amused.

Now that I have that out of my system, it's time to start thinking about the upcoming summer movie season. It is after all, the time of the year when genre movies seem to get released the most.

Anyways, on my list for things I absolutely must see are:

  • Star Trek
  • Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince
  • 9
  • Where the Wild Things Are
  • Astroboy
  • Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen
  • G.I. Joe: Rise of Cobra
And of course, there are things that I want to see, but am willing to forgo (or at least happily wait for DVD):
Well, that's enough lists for this week I think.
