Will Smith Faces Sophie's Choice Scenario

March 24, 2010


What to do next, Will Smith: another Men in Black (always a safe bet), or this crazy shit with magic candles making the island of Manhattan float like in the NES game Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles III: The Manhattan Project?

It's down to two choices: Sony's "Men in Black III" or 20th Century Fox's fantasy-adventure "The City That Sailed."

Penned by Andrew Niccol, "City that Sailed" revolves around a New York street magician who is unhappily separated from his young daughter. The girl, who moves to London, finds magic candles that make her wishes comes true, with unintended consequences: The island of Manhattan separates from the continent and floats toward England, bringing her dad ever closer.

Well, looks like this will be yet another day that will leave me impotently screaming towards the skies. Why can there never be enough Will Smiths to fit our needs? Why can't we just have two? Is that too close to Heaven on Earth? Damn you, God. Damn you.
