Aqua Teen movie on the way

It’s called Aqua Teen Hunger Force Colon Movie for Theaters and it’s due out in March, reports ComingSoon.net. The animated feature, based on the Cartoon Network series, is Adult Swim’s first feature and will detail the origins of Meatwad, Frylock and Master Shake.
"Never before will the silver screen be engaged in such a celebration of animation," said creators Maiellaro and Willis simultaneously and in unison when interviewed recently.
The show will continue to run on TV and it looks like sequels might even follow this initial film.


Wired
weird science


The good people at Wired started a show called Wired Science that premiered last night on PBS. Anyone watch it? David Byrne composed the theme music. To learn more and see clips, click here. While we're on a short science kick, check out this list of top pharmaceutical innovations of 2006. Anyone in need of some Zoster vaccine.


YouTubing in blasphemy's name

Did you know that more than 400 young people have joined a YouTube campaign created by the Web site BlasphemyChallenge.com to stake their souls against the existence of god? Sounds like 400 people didn’t see Bruce Almighty, Dogma or any of those old George Burns movies. If you go by Hollywood, and you always should, God is cooler than Samuel L. Jackson. Anybody wanna stake their soul against the existence of Samuel L. Jackson. … I didn’t think so.


M. Ward scores film


SuicideGirls.com reports that singer-songwriter M. Ward, praised for the albums Post War (2006) and Transistor Radio, just finished scoring his first film called The Go Getter. The film is a road trip drama starring Zooey Deschanel, Jena Malone and … M. Ward. It was written by the dude who wrote Stealing Harvard, so, you know, it might be quite terrible. Here’s to hoping Tom Green stayed away from the shoot.

Fox cancels The O.C.; Bionic Woman green lit

ComingSoon also reports that the sun will set on the so bad it’s still really bad nighttime soap The O.C. on Feb. 22. Please tell me One Tree Hill is next. … SuperHeroHype.com reports that the Bionic Woman will return to TV in an NBC remake. No casting news yet, but let’s hope they keep that cool bionic sound thing going.

That’s all I got time for. Now, listen to this Of Montreal track and get to work.

I saw it last night actually, and it wasn't bad, but I didn't enjoy it on the big screen as much as I do on television.
Some shows are just more enjoyable as small, eleven-minute treats rather than big, eighty-seven minute feasts.
See it as a matinee.

This is basically exactly what I expected of the movie. Which, of course, won't stop me from seeing it. Aqua Teen Hunger Force... ASSEMBLE!
