web comic of the day
While attending the screening of Cowboy Bebop Friday night, my lovely wife and I saw a commercial for Powerade that riffs on the upcoming Matrix sequel. Today's installment of Penny Arcade has "Questions and Concerns" this commercial.
We also saw a preview for the US release of Shaolin Soccer; it looks like Miramax hasn't stepped on it too much for Stateside consumption (although as I commented over at Destroy All Monsters, it seems they too submit to the temptation of relying heavily on footage from the film's climax for the trailer...). At least they didn't rename it "Kung Fu Soccer," as they reportedly planned to do.
I know I haven't commented on the film itself yet; I hope and expect to do so presently.
Update: Musashi has just posted a review of a fansubbed copy of the flick I sent him over at Destroy All Monsters.
