    Kick-Ass

    Saw Matt Vaughn's adapatation of Kick-Ass last Friday, it did exactly what it said on the tin (and more).

    Yeah, saw it the other day, most enjoyable.

    Some of the changes from the comic seemed a bit random but overall they got more right than they did wrong.

    Well wasn't the film finished before the comic's first volume? As Mathew Vaughn and Mark Millar agreed to make it as a kind of collaborative multi-media project making both at the same time, with filming going into development before even the first issue was published? (I heard Mathew Vaughn was approached by Mark, during the Stardust premier, back in 2007)

    Yeah, the final issue only came out quite recently (March?), which would explain some of it.

    Still enjoyed it a great deal though.

    Edit: go watch it, it's funny. First person Shooter scene is awesome.

    I managed to sit through the whole hardcover while I was in Waldenbooks the other day. I didn't care for it much. It's not something I'd ever want to read again.

    I'm surprised that they can have kids star in a movie they can't watch, according to the ratings system.

    How much did they tone down Hit-Girl?

    So she's still cursing like a sailor and making Mortal Kombat look like Barney?

    I wonder if any interest groups have said anything about the movie or comic.

    I cursed like a sailor when I was young, but it was mostly online, in private. Offline, I was hovered over by Mormons.

    I saw it in theaters.... it made me rage It was NOT the cute, funny movie I pegged it to be... instead it was an...action/comedy/drama movie?? But not done well.
    It was like weird humor+ awkward drama+ RIDICULOUS FIGHT SCENES (the only part I liked was the girl kicking ass) + WTF sex + deaths everywhere
    aewygrhulfhfehulgrbhlefhururghuifhuibuEFubEFGSefBU ;hebrwgluioi
    (supposed to be funny.. but serious, ridiculous.. yet realistic...?)
    [just my opinion, don't get offended I needed to get that out, I'm probably being too harsh lol]
