Only the estimable Glenn Kenny could mention Borges in a 'MIB III' review. The movie looks weak to me, but I'm tempted to see it based upon your assessment of Brolin's Jones impression.

Paul McNeill

Just read your review on MIB3. Enjoyed it but - who is your audience? Dumb it down a little so its less about you and more of an invitation to we pedestrians to understand your considerable accumen and wit. Cook up some comfort food. First time visiting your blog. I will be back. Really was moved by the entry "Mass Cards" from Patterson. So spot on. I have kept several from over the years and often am struck buy the absurdity of life going all around outside the windows of a funeral procession.

White pussy.

Glenn Kenny

Duly noted.

I have an acquaintance in California who apparently knows the "real" Lex, and a couple of years ago, by way of trying to be reassuring, he told me the individual in question was "a solid guy who I'd let drive my kids to school." I didn't see it then, and I don't see it now.

"I have an acquaintance in California who apparently knows the "real" Lex, and a couple of years ago, by way of trying to be reassuring, he told me the individual in question was "a solid guy who I'd let drive my kids to school."

Don't you have to be at least 16 years old to drive in California? That would seem to disqualify the person in question.

(NB: Needless to say I do not condone either the troll's or the pussy's egregious attention-whoring.)

Oliver_C

PPS: Who needs *movies* about freakishly strange, obnoxious beings resident on Earth when we have, right here and *for real*, LexG and Crusader Cat (even if his costume does fall short of Rick Baker standards)?

Anyone out there reading this and wanting to shoot the next 'Crumb' / 'Fast, Cheap and Out of Control' / 'Winnebago Man'-style cult documentary, just go track these two down!

Glad I AM NOT Mr. Kenny

I could care less if this is posted.

Mr. Kenny, here is a tip: William Strunk Jr. & E.B. White's "The Elements of Style". Buy it, read it, learn it.

You may be right about the movie, but GOOD GAWD, your writing sucks!

You get paid for this kind of garbage?

You sir, are a con-man of the highest order, I don't care how much you've published. That was a load-o-writing-crap!

That Fuzzy Bastard

What is it about blockbusters, where even a relatively positive review brings out the freaks?

Petey

"What is it about blockbusters, where even a relatively positive review brings out the freaks?"

As Roger Ebert wrote:

"They seem to have been assembled for victims of Attention Deficit Syndrome, who are a large voting block at the box office these days."

jbryant

Should we feed the troll by pointing out it should be "couldn't care less," and that he used a comma where a semi-colon should be, etc.?

Nah.

I.B.

But perhaps he means that he really can care less if this is posted! It is a possibility that remains to be seen. Maybe he cares the same as before, or who knows, maybe even a little more. The heart is a strange... a strange whatever, in such humongous creature as one named Glad I AM NOT Mr. Kenny.

Glad I AM NOT Mr. Kenny
Glad, I AM NOT Mr. Kenny (how many times do I have to tell you, Glad?)
Glad I AM, NOT Mr. Kenny (YES, MY FATHER CHRISTENED ME GLAD AND SCREWED MY WEE YEARS)
Glad I AM NOT, Mr. Kenny (like your review I didn't)
Gee, lad, I am HOT, me Lenny (Carl = black)

I know exactly how much I care about how much he cares.

Pinko Punko

Hilarious Strunk and White troll. That "Shrunken White Thing" as we punned in high school is not the thing to make anyone a good writer.

I.B., I doff my HAT, to you, SIR. I, DOFF MY HAT, to you sir. Etc.

Joel Gordon

I.B.: You never did the Kenosha Kid.

I.B.

Cheerio! I'm just a komical kamikaze. Trying to, anyways.

Petey

I find the wording, (likely not Glenn's wording), of "Comments are moderated, and will not appear until the author has approved them" to be incredibly odd.

Glenn is the author of the blog, but I'm the author of my comment, so shouldn't that imply that I get to approve my own comment?

Silly wording, (and silly comment on my part.)

Jonah

One of the unexpected pleasures of this film is that it actually manages to convey, viscerally, the excitement and expectation that surrounded the launch of Apollo 11. For someone who wasn't around at the time, that was something I appreciated.

The premise of this franchise (which owes something to Green Lantern, I guess) is so good that I can imagine it sustaining a longer series. But my sense is that this was designed as a one-off, rather than a "reboot" as they say nowadays

Oliver_C

Hasn't DC Comics just 'outed' the Green Lantern? At least that means no more of his girlfriends getting put in refrigerators.

Chuck

An excerpt from your story on Prometheus.

"As you know doubt have heard by now,"

Are you a sixth grader who doesn't KNOW the difference between "KNOW" and "NO". I say "No doubt"!

People are getting more stupid every day. The worst part is, most people won't even understand what I'm talking about. We're a country of retards!

Glenn Kenny

So Chuck, what's your favorite band?

Chuck

My favorite band.... Probably over all is Rush. By the way, your email - you're right and I apologize - it's no big deal. And I did mean it in a "tongue in cheek" kind of way. Didn't really intend to be malicious. Sorry about that. Really.

Chuck

And wasn't MIB 3 really very good for a 3rd in a series? I say, "Yes, it was...."

Glenn Kenny

I agree, Chuck. Also, the band I was hoping for was "No Doubt," get it?
Anyway, be well. Thanks.
