A Blog of Very Little Brain

'What does Crustimoney Proseedcake mean?' said Pooh. 'For I am a Bear of Very Little Brain, and long words Bother me.'

Look, up in the sky.

Just finished watching “Sky High“. Two things. One, on every level, this is the best visualisation of a Superhero comic book. In the attempt to replicate the comics in a live-action movie, Sky High became the best Superhero movie I’ve ever seen.

On the other hand, guys, the twist? You radio’d it from a mile. And the part about “even a sidekick is a hero” and the cliche about all the sidekick’s esoteric power becomes crucial? It was so forced. The kid that glows lights the tunnel? Like that was needed. I would bet my life on that the Guinnea-Pig girl will be needed. The Flower-Girl (BTW, kudos on that nature vs tech angle. Loved it) was Superhero material from the word “go”, it was so much not surprising, although the “peace-loving girl becomes she-tigress” cliche was very well handled, i.e. once the Septlet hit her, she had the basic demand on “protecting myself”, so in that sense it was “Big Mistake” on the Septlet part. But still, so exhausted. (edit: either that, or I’m reading much too many comic-books)

Other than that, spot-on.
