See, my big worry is that after seeing the reviews, I summed the movie up as:

3 dudes get powers, 2 dudes love it, one guy gets all cuts-himself emo...they fight, emo kid dies. the end.

I hope Im wrong.

Wait.  3 people get powers, two enjoy (abuse) the powers, one gets emo.  Emo dies.  Why would you hope you're wrong?  Sounds like the best possible ending for such a flick!

I can see why it's so popular.

I have been called bad before. Many have said I do things that are not correct to do. I don't believe in talk such as this. I am nice man, with happy feelings... all of the time!

Snyder version I take it?

Asteriktos, have you seen Tucker and Dale vs. Evil? Seems like it might be up your alley.

Haven't seen that one, but I'll keep my eye out for it, thanks for the recommendation :)

I got and enjoyed Ostrov, well worthing seeing again and again.

Now for secular films, I will not be seeing the Burton/Depp Dark Shadows, when it opens in May.  Loved the originial gothic soap opera, but the trailer for this film makes me sick.  Too much humor and the sexual tone is not to my liking.

I've said it elsewhere: the only people who didn't realize the original Dark Shadows was a comedic farce were the writers and its original fans. ;)

The so-called camp in the original series was due to the fact it was filmed live and with the budget, ABC gave Dan Curtis, retakes were impossible.  I'm not a fan of the work of Burton.  Depp sounds like, in this trailer, Captain Jack Sparrow with fangs.  lol

Fair enough.  I just think it's incredibly sub-par writing and filming, especially for network television at the time.  Any BBC series of the 60s, which were filmed with far less talent, time, money, and skill, stand up better than the original Dark Shadows. 

Aside from Planet of the Apes, I have seen every film Burton has ever directed and, with the exception of Batman Returns, I enjoyed each one at first viewing.  One could say I'm a mark for him, esp. when he directs Johnny Depp.
