Plain Old Tele

Dear Mr. Watterson (Calvin & Hobbes documentary) | Nov. 15, 2013

Recommended Posts

This probably won't come to Milwaukee but once it's on Netflix I definitely have to watch this. This was one of my favorite comic strips, along with the Far Side and Fox Trot.

 

And ever read the theory that Fight Club was Calvin and Hobbes grown up?

I love Calvin and Hobbes, but I sorta dislike the author. I feel that he is being greedy not letting us have a movie of the strip, even though he surely is not trying to be greedy.

 

Why? It's his strip, he should be allowed to do what he wants with it. Watterson has given his reasons why they'll never be a movie, and their perfectly understandable.

 

Besides you wouldn't want it to be another Garfield, would you?

It's good. I saw it many months ago at a film fest, and it's a fun celebration of one of the greatest comics of our generation. The only issue is that at times, it feels like 90 minutes of "ZONE C&H is the best!" but it does offer more than that.Fans of the comic will not be disappointed.

:lol: Well yeah, but if the creator feels he's told the story he wants to, and doesn't think films would be a good creative choice, who's to argue?

He's protective of the world he created and I think it helps preserve his vision.The last thing I would want to see is a Calvin and Hobbes happy meal or a CG movie with fart jokes.
