29 February 2008

"have you no shame? Get your dead ass up and fight me."


The Other Boleyn Girl: Fake British Accent Off! Not original

Semi-Pro: Fake Seventies Hair Off! Original

Penelope: Fake Absurd Nose Off! Not original


The Unforeseen: Documentary about development and sprawl in Austin, TX. Original

City of Men: Not a sequel to City of God, but almost. Original

EDIT: Jesse has caught on to the fact that this is a film adaptation of a Brazilian TV series. I know that the series was created by the same man who made City of God but whether the series was a spin-off or sequel depends on what source I look at. Either way this is based on the TV series of the same name, so Not original.

Chicago 10: Documentary about the Chicago Seven... and three more, I gather. Original

Chop Shop: Thankfully, this is not related to Barber Shop or Beauty Shop. Original

the score:

week: 4-3
year: 46-17


week: 1-2
year: 16-13

note: My bet for when the unoriginal overtakes the original in wide releases is by the end of March.

From the Onion AV Club review of City of Men:

"Now the City Of God series has come full circle. The television series spun off from City Of God, which itself was adapted from Paulo Lins' 1997 novel, which in turn was based on a true story, has hit theaters in the big-screen adaptation City Of Men. Got that?"

I certainly don't understand, which is why I came to you, oh champion of source material.
