    I wasn't interested in this movie until now. Love Stephen Chow films. Been following them since the early 90s when he came out with The King of Beggars. I think he can make this one interesting.

      As do I, James. Loved Chow's King of Cookery, and I think this movie is now in good hands, let's just hope the team of Rogen/Goldberg can deliver with the script.

    So, the '60s version of Green Hornet, the version most are familiar with, was a serious take though it was produced by Bill Dozier, the man who produced the Batman tv series and now, 40 some-odd years later, a new version is being readied by a guy who writes comedies and directed by the guy who made Kung Fu Hustle? The irony is so thick you can cut it with a chainsaw. George Trendle, Fran Striker, and Bruce Lee must be spinning in their graves.

      Well, define "serious." It was, sorta. Kinda.It'll be interesting to see how they'll be handling the character. He was created to be The Lone Ranger in contemporary (1930s) times. He descended from the Lone Ranger, but now that the properties are owned by two different companies, I guess that part's vapor. So all that leaves is another rich guy in a green suit with a more-talented servant and a really cool theme.

        I have the series on tape. It was more serious than it's brother series Batman. That may be damning it with faint praise but still.

          No, that's about right. And I have the series on Japanese laserdisc, so with the captioning it probably looks a bit more funny than it was.Gary Owens was in it. He must have been thrilled — a long-time radio and comics fan. Still is.
