New Spirit spots

Dec. 10, 2008by:

It's just a couple more weeks before we find out if Frank Miller's Will Eisner's THE SPIRIT is a tasty holiday treat or a giant lump of coal, but here are a few more clips to help you decide what you might be checking out at the movies on Christmas day.

The movie, based on the classic comic character, involves a rooftop-skipping vigilante, his fruity nemesis, and a shocking number of sexy females.

Extra Tidbit: The movie is rated PG-13 for "intense sequences of stylized violence and action, some sexual content, and brief nudity."

First...I don't smoke. Second, I am a massive Spirit fan and am willing to prove it to anyone (I'll send a pick of my bad ass Spirit themed office...yes...its true...) so shouldn't I be the first to hate on this film? I'm fully aware that they're outing the Octopus but for the purposes of film making they have to and since it's never been established what he does look like in the comic how do you know he's not an "electrofag"?!

I'm open minded especially after reading Miller's reasons for

I'm open minded especially after reading Miller's reasons for doing what he's doing and because I was in the hall at Comic con and everything they were showcasing was surprisingly justifiable.

Personally, I did picture more of a Dick Tracy meets Sin City thing but I'm keeping an open mind right now an art form that seems supremely lost as of late. I don't know why most people feel fully qualified to write an entire Roger Ebert critique after seeing a two minute trailer...yeesh, hooray for film criticism!

Anyone looking to ruin a film, please hire Samuel L. Jackson.

Awful, just awful......

They took a cool hero character and gave him a dickbag ass-puppet as a nemesis. The Octopus or better yet, the Cocktopus looks like he belongs in an 80's Culture Club/Psychedelic Furs video. This sort of nonsense is pathetic and ruins the credibility of the film. Anyone who thinks that this film looks good is out of their mind!

Re:Housecoat man

Really? you're a Spirit fan? And you don't have a problem with The Octopus who's identity is never revealed in the original series being portrayed as a pimp coated electrofag? What were you smoking when you read the books? Eisner is turning over in his grave while Miller anally rapes him without even a benefit of a reach around.

SHIT!

Sam Jackson looks like a Flamboyant Circus Idiot! The cheesy lines in the movie are giving me flashbacks of that late 90's crap-fest The Phantom. All the hot chicks in the world are not going to make this movie succeed!

I seem to be in the minority when I say that I'm actually looking forward to this flick. Granted, it feels nothing like the source material, but I'm a big enough Frank Miller fan not to really care. Plus...Samuel L. Jackson.

I can't think of a worst opening date for this movie. Not saying anything about it's quality, but this is a genre movie with a narrow audience. It's the type of movie that should open in months were there's no big movies and does decent bank because of that, like September or March.

Yes, finally somebody else sees The Phantom in this movie besides me. Looks like a real turd.

Can't wait

This looks fantastic. I love a good, strong female character, and this movie seems as though it's going to have that in spades. I also love the dark, comic book look of it. If it's a quarter as good as Sin City, that's good enough for me... And damn Eva Mendes looks hot in this.

I hope

This movie bomb. So Frank Miller will never have to be directly involved in movies anymore.Then he can go back to writing horrible comicbooks.

The line that really pisses me off is, "I'm gonna kill him all kinds of dead". Wtf does that even mean?

"He's something this city needs!" "Shut up and bleed!" God, does this scream of The Phantom to anyone else? This wouldn't have even been cool in the 90's.
