Google TV – A new way of thinking about TV entertainment

My Brother Reviews The Wolfman


Who's afraid of the big bad wolf?

Last weekend my brother went and saw The Wolfman starring Anthony Hopkins and Benecio Del Toro. He gave me a quick review of the movie in a few words that summed it all.

He said “It’s kind of like that movie where the guy gets bit by the spider and turns into Spiderman and it’s all awesome, except that the guy gets bit by a wolf and it sucks.

I just want you all to know that if I was walking in the dark night on a full moon in the middle of a creepy ass forest and a wolfman bit me, next morning, that wolf would end up turning into me.

That means he’ll go out and do some crazy shit in the middle of the night and howl at the moon and won’t remember anything the next day. Except he’ll be hairless, better looking, and more awesome than he’ll ever be.
