Happy Find… “I Can Read Movies”

Okay, it’s official.  As you can see in the Widget bar at the left, I am a Twitterer-er–ee… and my user name is WYSeanIWYG if anyone’s interested (comment me with your below and I’ll “Follow”).

Anywhippersnapper, I’ve already made one cool discovery, courtesy of Actor! Kevin Pollak (whom I’ve always liked before and since The Usual Suspects, probably because he kind of reminds me of one of my uncles).

He recommended the “I Can Read Movies” Series by some artist named Spacesick.  Basically, he conceptualizes each selected film as an iconic, stylized image (kind of like the old Activision game covers), portrayed as an old book cover.

Some examples:

"There can be only one... unless we want to make sequels."

"There can be only one... unless we want to make sequels."

"Hey, Dr. Jones, no time for love. We've got company."

"Hey, Dr. Jones, no time for love. Swinging on vines with monkeys? Eventually."

Soon to be major motion pictures, I'm sure. Then "I Can Read Movies" novelizations. Then video games again.

    Hey man I read a comment you made on topless robot about revenge of the fallen and your goal is to create a flow chart to prove why a movie is bad and such. I really liked your post and agree totally. To me a movie being good or bad is really 50% subjective. But anyway I read that Wolverine pissed you off, as it did me. I was curious as to what pissed you off exactly.

    Wolverine’s open credits were a montage of Logan’s early life; the remainder of the film slowed down the montage and called it a story. Aside from the terrible wire work and lack of plot, the final straw for me was Weapon XI/Deadpool. That entire battle was a fiasco (Wolverine could never block Scott’s concusive blasts with his claws!), and all the liberties I was willing to forgive the film went out the window. Dumb. Just dumb. And don’t get me started on Indy 4…
