Quote of the week

Dude, Bernie Madoff stole FIFTY BILLION DOLLARS. In a PONZI SCHEME. Which is the criminal equivalent of convincing people you are going to fly to the moon in a refridgerator box. The single, unpleasant truth is that most people, particularly criminals, are NOT complex. They are shallow, greedy sons of bitches to whom we attribute genius planning or complex motivations in order to preserve a false sense of order in our universe.

Aqua Teen Hunger Force

Cartoon Brew has been complaining about the Aqua Teen Hunger Force cynical cash in movie, and probably for good reason.

ATHF works as a 10 minute show ... but the very idea of watching 2 hours straight makes my brain melt.

I've never understood the compulsion to translate shows from one form factor to another. (Okay, it's all about money, but humour me, ok?)

The cadence of 10 minute shorts compared to self-contained 30-minute shows or a 90 minute feature film are very, very different. And when a show's success is very reliant on the format, it becomes difficult to transition from one medium to the other.
