Just a quick note to vent my spleen.


You see there were so many things wrong with doing a Thurderbirds movie that it is physically impossible for it to be good. After all the source material is tedious supermarionation at its worst. Nevertheless it appears that the Working Title Thunderbirds movie is not only going to be terrible, but its going to be terrible for all the wrong reasons.

It should be terrible because it is too faithful to the original. It should be terrible because it too takes eight minutes of loving puppet manipulation to launch any of the Thunderbirds, after which the majority of disasters will already be spent. It should be terrible due to wooden actors, uninvolving cast and a rocket that resembles a breeze block painted green.

It should not be terrible because it is a Spy Kids rip-off.

Spleen vented.
