Comic Strip Movies to Come…

Fans of Mystery Science Theater 3000 will love this new website by MST3K alums Mike Melson, Kevin Murphy and Bill Corbett.

They discucss “Garfield: The Movie” as well as imagining some other comic strips as movies.
My personal favorite is “Nancy and Sluggo”.  Here’s a small excerpt:
“Director Quentin Tarrantino has completely reconceived the cornball-jokey world of Ernie Bushmiller’s original cartoon as a place of sudden violence and ever-spiraling addiction. Nancy and Sluggo, played by Courtney Love and Benicio Del Toro, are heroin junkies caught up in a nightmarish onslaught of hitmen, ninjas, ultra-sick S & M vampire wannabes, and relentless pop culture references. Tom Arnold costars as Samuel L. Jackson’s lawyer, the mysterious “Mr. Turquoise,” though he is nearly unrecognizable behind the large Huckleberry Hound ball gag. “
