I think it may be fair to say that my esteemed co-blogger Mr. Marks has little taste for the middlebrow, preferring instead the high art of, say, The Three Stooges and the lowbrow joys of, say, Scorsese. Which goes a ways, I think, toward explaining his distaste for Raiders of the Lost Ark, a film that absolutely captivated me in childhood. Which goes a ways, I think, toward his deep lack of sympathy for my sorrow when Indiana Jones and the Oh My Lord Make it Stop, Shia LaBeouf is Swinging Through the Vines and Leading a Monkey Army had its rather malicious way with what was once a beloved franchise.

(Things aren't getting better on that front, what with Spielberg saying that he's proud to have brought the phrase "nuke the fridge" into pop culture. That's a little like saying you're proud of being the kid upon whom Beavis was based, isn't it? I mean, Beavis is hilarious and all, but damn.)

Now it's my turn. First pics are out of the new Farrelly Brothers Three Stooges:

Nyuk, nyuk, nyuk! Where be your jibes now, Shemp? Oh, that's right - they're stuck in the mouth of a terrifying simulacrum.

Admittedly, the Farrelly Bros. are their generation's answer to Jules White and Edward Bernds, but do you really think that I encourage this type of behavior? I'd sooner consent to the colorization of "Sunrise" or "Stop, Look, and Laugh." You watch. Elliott won't allow me the privilege of reviewing "Hugo," but this will surely land on Marks' list. I'm warning you, I'd rather contemplate the niceties of "Indiana Jones and the Temple Beth Israel!"
