Ode to (Musical, Sarcastic, Ultraviolent) Joy
Fortunately, it seems the subversive spirit at Henson Studios hasn't died -- it's gone a bit more underground and is leaking its way out any way it can. In particular it has found a home on YouTube. Great new bits like the one below have been showing up on everyone's favorite video service and they make good use of the staples that have made the Muppets so entertaining over the years: music, sarcasm, and slapstick violence. Perhaps it's a viral campaign for the upcoming Muppet movie? Is it just a way for the Muppeteers to let out some old-school wackiness? I don't care. Just keep 'em coming.

The Lost Skeleton Returns Again!
Now here's a movie trailer release I can get behind: not one, but five teaser trailers for the sequel to The Lost Skeleton of Cadavra -- The Lost Skeleton Returns Again! If ever there were a film worthy of a sequel franchise, I believe this is the one. I especially love the bit with the aliens bickering about wasting time.
Check out all five trailers right now.
The horror: Watchmen movie trailer surfaces.
Don't get me wrong, I think this looks great. I'm a Watchmen fan from way back. But there's a world of difference between making a music video that recreates scenes from the graphic novel and making a convincing movie out of some pretty epic source material.
Watchmen is an intensely cerebral comic book largely about comic books. What kind of movie do you make out of that? I'm guessing it will be escapist garbage, but I'll reserve judgment until I see the final product. Nice eye candy, though.
