Geek Media Update

Things you ought to know:

  • Seeing that the Constantine movie will suck to high heaven--apologies to all the Keanu fans out there, but it will--some folks may be interested to know that Frank Miller's Sin City will be making its way to the big screen. Casting Bruce Willis doesn't seem a tenth so bad as Keanu, and heck, in the original book I don't think Jessica Alba's part actually had dialogue, so we're OK there. Supposedly based on Sin City, The Big Fat Kill, and That Yellow Bastard. Stars Mickey Rourke, Bruce Willis, Jessica Alba, Elijah Wood, and others... not bad. Even better: Frank Miller is actually involved, and there's rumours of Tarantino. OK, I didn't like Kill Bill, but That Yellow Bastard could have been written for Tarantino to direct.
  • One of the best works on marriage (straight, gay, or otherwise), I've seen in a while, from Randy at Something Positive.
  • For some of my friends in England who watch far too much anime, keep an eye out for whenever Monster! gets translated. Near as I can tell, a secret society of Neo Nazis is trying to breed a new Hitler in some part of East Germany. Then again, knowing my skill with translating Japanese anime, these guys may just be plotting to steal McDonald's recipe for the special sauce.
