The wonderful Comics Aliance pointed me to in this interview of Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind director Michel Gondry by Cinematical, in which the director talks about the Green Hornet’s car and the film’s opening scene while his son beatboxes. It’s wonderfully surreal, and, to me at least, far more interesting than the Green Hornet movie. I’m both a nerd and a big Seth Rogen fan, way back from the Freaks and Geeks days, but I still can’t muster much enthusiasm for a comedic version of a ’40s hero that people haven’t given a shit about for half a century or so. I can’t help but feel it’s going to end up a bland, family-friendly porridge like that Steve Carrell Get Smart movie, I guess. Still, at least I have Gondry being ridiculous to console me.
And while I’m mentioning the Comics Alliance, I’d be remiss if I didn’t point out this exceptionally keen list of all the videogame references in the Scott Pilgrim comics, complete with helpful screenshots, courtesy of The ISB‘s Chris Sims. I knew most of ’em, but not all. If you needed to be reminded why Scott Pilgrim is 100% awesome, I’d head over there post haste
