Wilfred's Light

Post by dreamrock » Fri Mar 05, 2010 3:36 am

Wilfred knew he was a mutant. He felt light trying to burst out of him. His smile went from ear to ear.

Until Jackson chucked a can at the back of his head.

“Ow! Jeez, man.”

“Wilfred’s spaced,” Jackson sing-songed. “Thinks he’s something.”

“You don’t know nothing.”

When he slept, he dreamed he could fly or shoot powerful energy waves from his eyes.

He’d clean up Westmont and make his mom safe.

He felt it in him, growing stronger. Trying to get out.

All it took was a paper cut. Wilfred’s power destroyed three city blocks and him with it.

Anti-mutant propaganda? I never would have thought it of you, dreamrock.

Beware of Magneto, he takes a dim view of this sort of thing.

Nah, I'm pro-mutant. It's just ... sometimes things go wrong. Like you damage your eyes and have to wear a stupid looking visor and be emo all day and night for the rest of your life. Or someone makes X-men 3 or Catwoman.

i've had it with people trashing the film Catwoman! say what you will about it, if it weren't for Catwoman, Halle Berry and Sharon Stone would be serious, respected actors! for getting them out of the A-list, we must thank it, if for no other reason!

...that's a high enough standard to hold a feature film to, right?

I dunno, dude. Halle Berry was already on my Nicole Kidman List*, and I was forced to go watch Catwoman sober and could have cried were it not for the danger of someone thinking I was moved to tears by the "compelling" whatever.

I'll never forgive the creators of that movie. Never.

Well, actually, I already have, but it's more dramatic this way.


*The Nicole Kidman List is a list of actors whose movies I won't see without a good reason. Not all of the actors on it are horrible (Nicole herself is quite a good actor, she just has horrible taste in movies ... reference Cold Mountain and The Stepford Wives), but Halle Berry is definitely on there for being a horrible actor. Richard Gere is 50/50. I maintain that he's at least substandard, but it's mostly the movies he plays in that earn him his place on the list.
