League of Extraordinarily Crap Gentlement

We finally watched the film version of The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen. Man, that suuuuucked. It really looks like Connery’s going to pull a Brando in his final years: getting fat, phoning it in, and cashing in on his reputation. And what’s up with Saddam Hussein playing Nemo?

  1. The film’s version of Nemo was one of the biggest disappointments about the film. The comic version was a great deal more than a glorified taxi driver, moving the real players from A to B. Not remotely a likeable character, but a fierce, proud man who definitely wasn’t taking orders from a lackey of the Empire. (Especially in volume 2.)

    But then, there were so *many* reasons to dislike the film. (And yes, Sean Connery goes right to the head of the list.)
