Your Weekend Justice #126: Frank Miller’s Fried Podcast on a Stick

It’s Weekend Justice: the Internet’s #1 audio trainwreck. It’s the podcast that might not fry up interesting things but damn…the breading is delicious. This podcast was engineered–some might say over-engineered–by experts to escort you from the work week in the most chaotic manner possible. Please note: this podcast is profane, definitely oversexed and definitely overwrought. It is wrong and unsafe. You have been warned.

    The Spirit (2008) – 27 Second Review

    The Spirit poster

    Written by: Frank Miller, based on the comic by Will Eisner
    Directed by: Frank Miller
    Starring: Gabriel Macht, Dan Gerrity, Jaime King, Eva Mendes, Ellen Dolan, Scarlett Johansson, Louis Lombardi, Samuel L. Jackson, Arthur the Cat

    Review: Evil personified? It is Samuel L. Jackson wearing a Nazi uniform, while delivering a smug monologue, and dissolving a cute fluffy kitten. I giggled until I couldn’t breathe. And I agree, Sam. Toilets are always funny.

    Time: 13 seconds

    Stuff: Jack Ryan Begins (Again)

    Harrison Ford as Jack Ryan
  • A new Jack Ryan flick? You know it’s in development. And the rebirth of Bond and the success of Bourne I’m sure have only made Paramount really want to get off their ass and do a follow-up to Sum of All Fears, the capable re-working of Affleck and Morgan Freeman into the former Harrison Ford part. Hossein Amini (Wings of the Dove) is on tap to scribe the new movie, which you can pretty much just call Jack Ryan Begins. I think you know what I mean. Regardless, don’t expect Affleck to return. Apparently Sam Raimi was attached for a while to direct–don’t know what the hell they were thinking on that, the only person with a more packed dance card these days is Del Toro. As an aside, apparently Amini is scribing The Subtle Knife at Warner Brothers.

    I must say: whoever’s going to play the new Ryan, they won’t have as good a Pissed Off Face as Harrison Ford. That and while we’re waiting, I would be perfectly content with Liev Schrieber in the Without Remorse movie. Just for the record. Source: Hollywood Reporter.

    Dear Frank: About That “300” Sequel…

    Frank Miller

    We know that you’re a busy guy these days. You know, working on the Sin City movies we presume, and The Spirit, and every ten months or so writing a really terrible issue of The Goddamn Batman. And now you want to do a sequel to 300. Well, as has been pointed out on more than one occasion, this is tricky, since, you know, you killed practically every major character and a few thousand minor ones.

    Many others have tried to puzzle this out and failed. Gladiator 2 was looked at, as the Variety article mentions, and if I remember correctly they were going to try and do something with the Djimon Hounsou character. I, Too, Am Legend is also mentioned as something they’re like to have but I think the world just rather we actually get an adaptation of the book this time rather than, you know, a turd. Even a sequel to Titanic was discussed with Kathy Bates on another ocean liner–originally popped up on Corona as the one real page in a sea of April Fools jokes.

    So look, Frank, we know it’s hard. Therefore we’ve decided to put our Hollywood caps on–the ones that harmlessly disconnect a good 76% of our neurons–and help you out. We humbly present these ideas that we hurriedly scratched down onto a napkin.
