In Which Your Humble Blogger is complaining about television, for a change. Well, I say television, obviously, I watched it over the internet. Also: Spoilers. But for last week’s episode, not this week’s.
In Which Your Humble Blogger doesn’t even get started on how long these movies have been in the pipeline. I mean, the Borrowers one was released in Summer 2010. I thinking it wasn’t really co-ordinated with the Once-ler.
In Which Your Humble Blogger could live for a month without a new episode of his soap, but couldn’t make it to lunch without a nice, juicy justification.
In Which Your Humble Blogger would have liked it even more had it been Carey Thomas. Ah, well. Hey, who would you cast in the Carey Thomas biopic?
In Which Your Humble Blogger points out that the Barry (nee Bagelman) Sisters, as is traditional, sing English versions of the two great songs that aren’t so much translations as an entirely new lyrics that scan to the old ones.
In Which Your Humble Blogger also thought that the songs weren’t as catchy, and that the animation wasn’t as good, and that the villain wasn’t funny.
In Which Your Humble Blogger doesn’t want to go back and watch the thing again to see if I missed the part that wasn’t there.
In Which Your Humble Blogger loves movie taglines, what with the awfulness.
In Which Your Humble Blogger was going to pick out a Vicar of Dibley line for this pull-quote here, but couldn’t decide on one, and besides, Richard Curtis writes for the actors, so the lines often don’t work in print as well. Still.
In Which Your Humble Blogger probably wouldn’t actually watch the thing, if it were on television, but still thinks that it’s a great idea, this idea I had.
