Beautifully Done Comic Adaptation
I had the honor of going to a special screening of Sparks, which I had been very excited to see. The film did not disappoint. Not only did it have some amazing actors, but for such a small budget the scenes looked beautiful. It does skip around a little which I didn't exactly like, but other than that it is definitely a film worth seeing. I hope many more people either see or buy this film to support the filmmakers, because they really did put their heart and soul into it. I actually got to meet the writer of the film (and comic) who talked about how everyone worked so hard to get the film done in a short amount of time. Anyway, go see the film. Seriously, it rocks.
Driver picks the music, shotgun shuts his cakehole
Imagine there's another world where all of your childhood nightmares exist, and the only thing stopping them from getting you is the presence of hunters in this world. Everything from wendigos to dragons to real-life fairy tales are present in this place, and anything is possible. There are demons and angels, but God is absent and no longer cares, and the angels are intent on doing whatever the hell they want - which includes jump-starting judgment day. The only thing left to keep the world intact are two boys, an old drunk, and a fallen angel. Supernatural is the story of these people.
Ever seen a show where you loved everything about it? Well, for me this is that show. It has awesome casting, amazing songs, brilliant writers who aren't afraid to go that extra insane mile, cool story lines, heroic and wonderful characters, and last but certainly not least - a gorgeous Impala. There are plenty more reasons to love it, but they are much too numerous to name. Though most of them are entire episodes.
I actually stumbled upon it on accident, as one day as I'm watching television, I see a promo for Supernatural. So I make a mental note to check out the show, but with my memory I forget about it for two weeks. Then, finally, I watch the episode Bedtime Stories, and absolutely kick myself for not hearing of this show sooner, as I find it to be brilliant. I don't understand what the whole "demon deal" is about, but I understand enough about the show to know that it's something I'd love to see more of. It's funny, it's well-written, it has great characters and actors... Based on that episode alone, I went out and bought the first three seasons, and Supernatural has since become my favorite show of all time.
I realize all of this might sound a little bit biased. Sure, there have been a few (very few) times when I wasn't quite as impressed with the show as I usually am. But for the most part, I really do find it to be an amazing and unique show. After all, where else can you watch an angel unsink the Titanic, a shape-shifter that likes to be all the great monsters from the old movies, or two characters playing the roles of their real-life personas acting as their character selves? (You might have to think about that last one if you haven't watched the show).
For anyone reading this who has never watched this show, go out and give it a shot. You won't be disappointed. I sure wasn't.
