10 things we’ve learned from Comic Con 2008

1) Fat people should not wear spandex. Or any tight-fitting costumes.

2) Kids in costumes are very cute, as are whole families dressing up.

The family that dresses up together, stays together.

But either way, there will probably be therapy issues later in life.

3) Terminator Salvation may be okay.

Read how McG wowed the Comic Con crowds here. News that Jonathon (brother of Chris) Nolan is the “lead” scriptwriter is encouraging.

4) Hugh Jackman knows how to work a crowd. And is still hot even with shaggy hair and beard.

5) Comic Con girls dress slutty. But we like it.

6) Twilight fans are INSANE. And scream too much and too loud. And Robert Pattinson’s hair is ridiculous.

8 ) There is a very good feeling about Watchmen.

9) Ray Stevenson looks great in a suit. But that still doesn’t mean the new Punisher will be any good.

Christian Bale: not just Batman!

That’s right folks. In the week of The Dark Knight, when all we hoped for it came to pass, another Christian Bale film is sneaking out some teaser stuff. Not content with one mega huge franchise, he’s also part of another little-known, not-that-popular, could-do-with-more-action indie series. What’s it called again…oh yeah….Terminator something.

There are many reasons for our reaction to Terminator Salvation to vary from indifference to skepticism to outright hostility, but most can be summed up in one word: McG. The McDonalds happy meal of the directing world, we have every reason to fear the worst. But at least the marketing team are earning their retainer so far. The previously reported trailer gives some good hints and flashes, without being stupid enough to show us any real, judge-able footage just yet.

And today’s shot of John Connor? Bale’s just doing what he does best – kicking ass and taking names.

And thank jebus they’ve dropped the original cumbersome title for the better-but-not-quite-as-good-as-just-T4 for Terminator Salvation.

Terminator: The Return Of The Terminator

As much as we would love to say that the title of this piece was, in fact, a hilarious well scripted joke on our behalf, the sad truth is that it just isn’t. Appearantly Terminator 4 was too short, while Terminator: Salvation was too obscure, while Terminator Salvation: The Future Begins was just too f**kin’ long, and Terminator: War Against The Machines was too obvious. So¬†they went with what is possibly the most infuriatingly bad grammar title of all time.

Terminator: The Return Of The Terminator. Breathe it in. Do you smell that? Thats shit, thats what that smell is. Thank you, McG. Thank you for replacing Paul W.S. Anderson and Uwe Boll on the top of shit hit list. Oh boy are you gunna geddit!
