Friday Blitz 2: Horny for Hornet? You'll have to wait.

Brace yourselves, it's Friday Blitz part deux:

The path of The Green Hornet to the big screen is complicated and awful enough to make you wonder what level of dedication you have to have to overcome years of obstacles just to bring a mediocre 60s television show about a dude who wears a lame mask and his racially troubling relationship with his manservant who knows kung fu. Me? I'd have given up after the first three projects fell apart. Now comes word that the latest installment, which has gotten to the point where they're filming and such (with Seth Rogen and director Michel freakin' Gondry), is going to be delayed further from its original delay. It was supposed to be a summer movie, then it was a winter movie, now it's a 2011 movie, with the film bumping to MLK Jr Day 2011 in order to, you guessed it, convert the thing to 3D. Now, as much as I don't mind the thought of watching Gondry blow my everlovin' mind in three dimensions, converting a film not shot in 3D looks like shit and the fad has officially gone from "overblown" to "Twilight-level." Like deep-fat-fried anything, 3D is good in moderation, not as all 3 meals for the day. I'm intrigued by The Green Hornet (solely on the Gondry basis), but this turns me off a great deal.
