I seem to remember rumors of a Samurai Jack movie floating around that was gonna wrap everything up. Not sure if it's still happening or not...

It wasn't really a good show, trying too hard to compete with action anime that ran during better time slots.  Samurai Jack lost me at the episode when Jack fights an evil DJ by dressing up as a raver (WTF?)

apparently you didnt get what MADE the show, it wasnt trying to be like anime at all.  if it was trying to be anything it was trying to be yojimbo, a LIVE action movie.  Used very clever camera work.  was able to tell full stories without dialogue, it was good dramatic storytelling.  Every now and then they purposely had silly episodes i think because thats the type of humor genndy must have (see dextars lab). 

They werent mimicing anime (thank god) they were mimicing kurasawa.

did anyone else also notice that his strolling music (usually only used in the beggining of an episode) sounds an awful lot like yojimbos theme?

Samurai Jack RULED THE FREE WORLD!!!  What was that guy talking about???  Even I, as a relativist, must admit the TRUTH that SJ was greatness!  Man, I loved the artwork, like Japanese silk paintings, the direction, like better than Hollywood movies, and the deadly seriousness mixed with goofy humor mixed with real philosphy... man...

Yes, Pak, there were rumors about a movie, I heard that too, and Keanu Reeves wanted to play Jack (!!).  I mean, he LOOKS the part, but... I don't know about Reeves playing him...

actually i heard that genndy started that rumor by mentioning it in an interview he had in september.  ive yet to discover said interview to back it up.  And the movie i dont think was supposed to be live action i think itll be like the powerpuff girls movie.  animated on the big screen but bigger budget.  and of course GENNDY  ;)

posting this instead of the MTV link since your eyes may start to bleed in the 10 minutes of flash animation before the article shows up

Yeah man, this was like 3 years ago, maybe longer.  Apparently Keanu is a fan of the show and he actually went to the suits looking to make the live action movie, so people were actually in talks and everything.  But, like all Hollywood rumors, who can say what's true?  *shrug*

Keanu is many things, and I've actually enjoyed a large percentage of his movies, but Stoic just isn't right for him. :^)
