Mostly they are glorifying my adolescence and fall short in quantifying if not qualifying the obsession my brother and I had as kids with comics. For some reason Hollywood is great at visualization, perhaps, but the movies dont inspire the kind of pure emotion that the characters in these comics elicited.

Perhaps its a bit over-dramatic, but I watched a superhero movie tonight that came as close to the real thing as Ive experienced in quite a long time. Kick-Ass (2010). Im not too sure what exactly it was but it was actually a fun movie. I expected another bromance in the context of superheros but was surprised, not to mention, Nicolas Cage was actually REALLY good, yes, perhaps a type-cast, but one he is exceedingly good at.

And to make matters worse, I love the title track by Mika. Sorry but I already intimated my affection for Blink-182 on this blog so I dont think I could lose much more respect from my audiophile friends at this point. Oh and to all the ladies if you havent seen Mika yet, youre welcome:
