The Grinch – Trailer #2 (or Why Dr. Seuss Should NEVER be Done in Live Action)

Remember Jim Carrey’s live action portrayal in Dr. Suess’s The Grinch That Stole Christmas (in case you don’t I’ve included the trailer.  You’re welcome)?

How The Grinch That Stole Christmas (2000)

If there were ever characters designed to be animated, it’s Dr. Seuss’ s because his drawings, when placed in a real life context, come off not only weird but off-putting–and to be honest vaguely sinister.

Which I’m reasonably certain wasn’t the original intent.

The Cat In The Hat (2003)

In GCI though, it just works.

And while I have not seen the movie, that dog looks like it’s trying to steal the movie out from under Benedict Cumberbatch’s Grinch.

‘Dead Island: Riptide’ Trailer

It’s been awhile, relatively speaking, since I last posted.  That will tend to happen when I don’t feel like making a mountain out of a molehill, like with the rumor that Marvel is considering adding either Jim Carrey or Adam Sandler to the cast of “Guardians of the Galaxy” (as Rocket Raccoon).

If I said that I didn’t care I’d be lying because I prey that the Powers That Be choose Carrey, whom I take just a bit more seriously (and by “a bit more seriously” I mean ‘a lot’) than Sandler.

Anyway, I found the CGI trailer for the upcoming “Dead Island: Riptide” video game, and thought that I would post it, though I should add if you’re of the mindset that video games somehow cause you to purchase a gun and go out and shoot someone, I suggest that you move on (which is interesting in that somehow guns, according to some people, have relatively little to do with violence, yet I haven’t heard of anyone being pummeled to death by an PS3 cartridge.  Though if I did I would be unable to avoid part of myself admiring the person based upon how difficult that would be to do).

Nothing to see here.

In reference to the above trailer, it starts out really beautiful, till the zombies come and things end in fire (as things tend to do, when you’re dealing with zombies).
