Homo sapiens has earned its extinction.

if the new kids reunion wasn't enough to make you hold your head in your hands and weep, have you seen this? http://www.battleinseattlemovie.com/

(oh, and an overdue hello, by the way!)

hello me duck, and oh my fuck no, I hadn't seen that. I'm wanting to be hopeful for it, but the music in the trailer is enough to make that hope throw its hands in the air and run off screaming.

You're right, Merrick, that music tells you a lot about what the movie will be like.

The one hopeful thing, I guess, is Woody Harrelson's involvement. It means at least one of the people involved actually took part in the demos. I was amused to note that he plays a riot cop in the film :)

Harrelson as the good cop, with the pregnant wife ('just in case we haven't made it clear you're supposed to like this character, here's the clumsiest imaginable device this side of him rescuing drowning puppies').

Sheesh.
