The first thing that came on the screen was a green tea commercial, further confirmation of my location in the world.
I got to see a preview for The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion The Witch and The Wardrobe. Like the American preview it flashed between live action and text. The text, though, was in Japanese. There was a great part where it flashed on the screen “Lion vs. Witch” in Japanese Kanji. Yeah! Lion vs. Witch!
Speaking of funny stuff, the upcoming movie “The Island” looks like a complete and total rip off/remake of “Parts: Clonus the Horror.” Which I only know about because of Mystery Science Theater 3000 (season 8 episode 12). Not surprisingly, “Parts” was probably better than this new version. And the MiSTed version will be unquestionably the best of them all. I just hope someone decides to completely jack all the ideas from “Prince of Space,” and calls the new movie, “The Chronicles of Cranckor.” Now that would be awesome!
