The following are the movies that are coming out on my birthday (more than any other date this month...yay me):
Now. A lot of these movies look bad. Like, REALLY FUCKING BAD. That doesn't mean I won't be looking forward to a few of them though. Perfect Stranger? Sign me up! (As long as I don't have to pay for it.) I also want to see Disturbia and possibly Lonely Hearts, as they seem to be the only ones on this list close enough to being legitimately good. I will, however, be seeing the movie being made for my favorite TV show, EVER.
Ok, maybe not EVER. That title goes to Invader ZIM.
ZIM was the story of a misanthropic alien (aren't they all?) who also happened to be a megalomaniac and an idiot. His mission was to take over the Earth. (again, aren't they all?) The problem was, he sucked at it. Badly. His idiot robot (which fanboys of the show to stupid to see it for all of it's brilliance peg as being the only reason the show was funny, even though it WASN'T the only reason by a long shot) didn't help matters either. Despite his seemingly lacking intelligence, I am obviously the human real-life equivalent of ZIM. The picture above shows what ZIM looked like on a regular basis. And this is what he looks like after his disguise:
(I kinda think he looks like me. :D)
The best part about it was, only one (well two I suppose, if you count Dib's sister) person was aware that ZIM was an alien, despite it being painfully obvious. With a generally misanthropic undertone, the endless exploitation of stupid people, bouts of randomness (which I live for), the twisted art and the even darker sense of humor, ZIM was the best show ever made, EVER. Unfortunately it aired on Nickelodeon and because it was a happy-go-lucky sponge who lived in fucking luau headgear, it was cancelled. Cartoon Network's [adult swim] tried to obtain the rights to air it, but Nickelodeon, probably seeing what [adult swim] did for Family Guy, didn't sell them the rights. In a way this irks me because all the potential for more brilliance was squandered, but I suppose it also maintains the integrity of the show by leaving it be.
Just a few more pics from the show:
If it's brilliance escapes you, I fear you have the brain worms. Hideous human pig smelly.
Anyway, with ZIM gone (but now on DVD! I have #1 and 3. Someone should get me #2. Do I hear birthday wish list?!), I moved on to Aqua Teen Hungerforce.
I can't really offer an intelligent explanation about the show, because really it can't be explained. And as I believe it says on their official site, if you have to ask what it's about, it's probably not a show for you. Anyway, the movie comes out on - surprise! - my birthday. I plan to go see it, even if half of Boston won't. (See what I'm talking about here.)
Will it be a crappy movie? Maybe. But as a true fan (and someone who's not really looking forward to my birthday), I plan to revel in it's possible crappiness.
Anyone care to join me?
Don't lie. Because if you do, they'll find you. And kick your ass. Check, check it.
