loooooooooooooooong. draggy. and not in the proper queen sort of a way. i guess this was ok. i hesitate to say that, but i will. i typed it all slow-like. it was, in my opinion, better than the first "so you know what happens to a toad when it gets hit by lightning..." nonsense, and waaay better than the third installment which was crazy bad. so i guess that's a plus?
i don't understand the need to change details in this sort of a thing with this sort of mythology. i feel like something you labored over and was your brain baby, and the movie making business comes along years and years and years after you created it successfully, and wants to change the details...well, i'd tell them to fuck off. stan lee certainly doesn't need money. he's whoring all over the place... so i guess i just answered my question. why would this be an exception to his whoring behavior. meh. i'm over it. whatever.
let's talk about january jones shall we? i've heard her acting in this movie compared to a wood plank. i'll tell you i think the plank has more personality. her performance is so bad. i've seen cable access shows with better actors. emma frost as betty draper. i guess her repertoire speaks for itself.
the little nods to the other movies were unnecessary, but ok, and understated. George "Ass face" Lucas should take note on how to do that.
