Bull-headed, tormented, I don't get it
"Why," screams the newbie Sam and Fuzzy reader in frustration, "is there a second Fuzzy wearing a sombrero?!?" I admit, it has been a long while since Future Fuzzy last appeared, and even then, he has only shown up in handful of strips. But if you're confused, his first appearance will tell you everything you need to know. I almost said that it would "explain everything," but then I realized that would be a blatant lie!
Sky Captain opens tonight! I am really hoping the execution is as solid as the art direction, because every frame of film I have seen so far has looked seriously slick. I have never seen a film that convincingly passed off CG work mixed with live action as "real." It always looks wrong, jarring, impossible. But when it is used in as holistic a manner as it is here -- when it is used to shape the style of the entire film -- just like animation, it creates a world where you can believe those impossible things can take place. And it looks great!
