Rental bin, here I come

I have a feeling that "Daredevil" is going to suck. And not suck in an amusing, hysterical, over-the-top way. It's going to suck in a very boring, pedestrian, uninspiring way. It's going to suck in such a way that all involved will look back on it as an entry on their resume they can barely remember except in a very negative way. It's going to be neither enjoyable sucky or mind-bendingly sucky; it's just going to be dull and tired and predictable and it's going to suck.

It's not just the fact that Elektra seems to have been transplanted from Greece to southern California. It's not just that Bullseye appears to be played by Perry Saturn. It's not just that the trailer is yawn-inducingly dull. It's not just that the c.v. of the writer/director includes 'Jack Frost' and 'Grumpier Old Men'. It's not just that the most way-cool action hero line they could come up with for the preview is "I'm going to get some air".

It's that the movie stars Kevin Smith as Jack Kirby.

This is so wrong on so many levels that nothing good can possible come of it.
