set in the past never work for some reason. Think of the phantom, the spirit, the shadow...so many attempts at period superheros, and they all died at the b.o, even if they were actually good ala the Rocketeer. Can anyone fill me in on the green hornet? I dont think its a comic book character...never heard of a green hornet comic. Was it an old tv show?

Got the first volume the week it came out... love it to death. True visionary.

very interesting visually.

It's just the involvement of Seth Rogen! That's like casting Larry The Cable Guy as Bruce Wayne!<br> But damn, I didn't know that there is another Gondry DVD coming out! Fuck yeah!

arrives to vent about this movie (while simultaneously claiming he has no interest in it) becos Seth Rogen is in it? Few things bring out his irrational hate more than when there is a post about someone that he has a serious bug up his ass about...

about his work. I recently watched a real film film being made in my town. they were here for a whole month. You know nothing you plan for really works out. You have all these everpresent issues and then unpredicatable ones as well. I undertsand the need for story boards even more now. Making one shot match another that filmed at two different locations on different days being at the mercy of mother nature. Having to fight to locals to aquire the places and time. trying to get sets up and broken down in a timely fashion. It's crazy. And yet the goal is to make it seem as uncrazy as possible. I like how gondrys works embraces abnormal and uses it. Then when you watch his stuff and you sit there raking your brain wondering how he pulled it off. It's very captivating. He's so himself as well. I don't know what I'm trying to say but damn I love his work. Theres something so surreal about it. I hope he continues to make what he really wants to make no matter what.

Holy shit does that movie suck. Nothing is more frustrating than watching characters expend a tremendous amount of energy trying to fix a problem that really only takes the most minimal amount of effort. Seriously, rent the movies on DVD and transfer them to VHS. Yes, a boring movie that would be, but at least it doesn't insult anyone's intelligence.

I'm ordering two copies as we speak. I'm sure Vern will appreciate the teaming of Gondry and Seagal, even if it was a fluke. Thanks for the article, Beaks.

when it has him River Dancing.<p> (going to have to lurk this thread and see if the people cheering seagal (and his relationship with his daughter that is *out there*) are the same ones that were calling Marilyn Chambers a whore, god killed her, etc, blah...)

you know like in the last couple days?<p> Here's a tip for you ladies, esp if your a reporter. Don't be menstruating.<br> Björk can smell that at seventy yards.<p> It just sets her off.<br> Her handlers had to open their veins to draw her off the crowds those other times.

I thought they'd all died out by now.
April 14, 2009, 11:42 a.m. CST
we did all die. But the secret decoder rings we all got in the 60's revived us.<p> Now we're all here to stay<br> Until we suck every single dollar out of social security.<p> Get back to work kid

Short story: Radio show created as a loose spinoff of The Lone Ranger in the '30s. Spawned comics and movie serials but eventually died out. Came back in the '60s as a TV show. More comics. Died again. Kinda came back in the '90s as a comic book series from NOW that tied all the seemingly disparate incarnations together as a family lineage. (This is how I learned about GH and it's my favorite.) There's a lot more than that, but you'd just have to Wiki it. So, yeah... There ARE still Green Hornet fans out there.

I must be really old-school, because I had no idea MTV ever _started_ showing them. I'm kind of surprised music videos are still being made... where are they released to? Special DVD compilations? Youtube? MTV is a wasteland, now.

His skill does not translate well to motion pictures, and in fact his heavy hand almost singlehandedly sank the brilliance of the ESOTSM screenplay.<br><br>He is the master of creating ethereal interpretations of music and sustaining that vision for a few minutes. That doesn't make you a storyteller.

What is this story? It's not a rumor. It's not really news. It's PR for Michel Gondry. I'll bet Michel Gondry's publicist gave AICN this story. Based on what people say in the talk back, the studio will decide what to let Gondry do with Green Hornet and what they won't let him with it. AICN used to print rumors like perezhilton.com but now all of the articles on this site are carefully constructed PR stories that are meant to manipulate you into thinking some movie is "cool". Don't read this site anymore. Have you noticed that Variety is more comprehensive with their industry news than AICN? That's pretty sad. Nowadays, AICN is used to hock soundtracks. I'll bet some media corporation like Time Warner bought this site and didn't tell you about it. This site is like Entertainment Tonight.

Can't wait to pick this up. Whenever I have a party I put the directors series on in the backround. Romanek's and Gondry's are excellent. Good show, bro.

Did he rape her?
