Alright guess I'm watching League of Extraordinary Gentlemen
@kioskwitch still love that Connery made this because he turned down both Lord of the Rings and The Matrix
@madcat lmao oh no
@kioskwitch yeah he turned down both Gandalf and Morpheus and then was like “I don’t know what the kids like anymore, let’s do one of these”
@kioskwitch also thankful he turned down Morpheus, because I can’t imagine his ancient ass doing it
the concept is fun, and his take on Jekyll and Hyde is pretty solid, but hoo boy does his old "cripple the bitch" instinct make itself known early and often.
@kioskwitch @wintgenstein @madcat the Killing Joke is one of his most famous works. it's the definitive Batman and Joker story. Has some great stuff in it! It also has a point midway through where the joker cripples Barbara Gordon, for no reason other than to fuck up her dad's day.
word of the author: "I'd love to say we seriously thought about it, but no, as I recall, the question of how far we should push it came up and I said 'cripple the bitch.""
@kioskwitch she's from Dracula that's why
@wintgenstein yeah I know
@kioskwitch oh man I love LXG. One of my favourite movies
@loki it is something alright
@kioskwitch is good because it's awful and I'll stand by it until the day I die
@loki it is immensely entertaining, at least in parts, and I kinda love it for that
@kioskwitch yes exactly
It's also just so over the top and ridiculous that you can't take it seriously and I love that
