Comic to movie

WANTED was a great book about supervillains that run the world and keep us in the dark about the real truth of our existence.

WANTED the movie on the other hand, appears to be about a secret society of assassins that run the world and keep us in the dark about the real truth of our existence.

In the trailer, it just feels like another action movie.

Yeah, we rocked out again tonight.

I’m hoping for groupies at some point.

The South still has a public relations nightmare to clean up after that whole state’s rights issue that got blown way out of proportion. Then, as usual, the only people you see on the television are folks that appear to be straight out of Deliverance. Continue reading
