Lemony Snicket preview

I knew they were making a Lemony Snicket movie, but I didn’t realize Jim Carrey was playing Count Olaf! Check out the trailer. It looks… interesting. I think he looks the part but I didn’t really imagine the Count being so goofy. In the books I read (the first four), he was very creepy and scary and menacing. That’s part of the reason I didn’t like them so much. I don’t like scary stories! But other than the goofiness, this looks like it good be a good film. I hope they keep the books’ warped sense of humor. And how funny is it that Jude Law is providing the voice of Lemony Snicket?! (Link courtesy of Kevin.)

  1. i don’t like. violet looks a little too mandy-moore-ish and klaus is nowhere near nerdy enough! 🙁

  2. I missed these books as a kid. Do you recommend me going and picking them up as they look quite fun?

  3. You didn’t miss them WeeB! They’ve only been out for the last couple years. There are 13 of them and they get very repetitive, so I wouldn’t bother buying all of them without trying them first. (Also, I don’t think they’re even available in paperback yet. All the ones I’ve seen in bookstores are hardbound and thus more expensive.) The ones I read were just checked out of the library. They might appeal to your dark sense of humor though…

  4. what dark sense of humour is this? 😉

    /me goes off to invent a new story called, “Thumbscrew Joe and the Rebel Cat Gang.”
