I know that my humor can be a little opaque at times. This was in reference to the comparisons I’d been seeing between General Qasem Soleimani and Archduke Franz Ferdinand – which, personally, I don’t get. Franz had way better facial hair.
The whole thing is a little depressing though. Is the 21st century just going to be one of those shitty reboot/reimaginings of the 20th – but grittier, “sexier”, and with bigger explosions plus a more diverse cast? Jesus, I hope they’ve got Rob Zombie directing this thing rather than J. J. Abrams or Michael Bay.
