I just finished reading a hilarious & revealing early review of "The Spirit" which will open in movie theaters around Christmas. I had already committed myself to not seeing this flick, as every trailer that I've seen pretty much revealed that it wasn't Will Eisner's classic character brought to life on the big screen.
Read this review and be forewarned http://www.aintitcool.com/node/39450
You will laugh (or cry) if you are a fan of either The Spirit or Will Eisner! And ... you will probably want to join me in lynching Frank Miller (he is the butt monkey whose picture is floating over there on the right hand side of this post).
Up yours, Miller! The only point made by the reviewer in his dissection of your stupid-looking film with which I disagree, is that YOU are at fault for making this turkey (and for being you). Based on every available promo for this film, you either hated the original premise, concept and characters that were a part of Eisner's classic Spirit strip OR you truly think that comic book fans are among the most incredibly stupid people on the planet.
Here's a clue for ya'. You've forgotten that you are a major fanboy yourself, and as you continue to spend the cash that you receive for your earlier comics work, take heart in the fact that you successfully scammed a major studio out of a bucketful of money to churn out this piece of pablum. I wonder if Robert Osborne can edit you out of your recent co-hosting gig on Turner Classic Movies?
