I've seen Kick Ass and I don't know why it's viewed as controversial…
Well, wait… I do know. It's the pre-pubescent girl wearing leather and the cartoon violence. But you'll only find that titillating if there's something irrevocably wrong with you already! This film will corrupt nobody. It made me laugh so much I cried.
Also… Fionn Regan should be old news by now but I've only just got the memo. I find his self-conscious emulation of Bob Dylan here quite charming! Especially the hat and sunglasses which, combined with the pratfall, make him look about TWELVE.
And this Villagers song appeals to the frustrated artist in me. :) Hooray for creepy pigs and lyrical poetry.
