It was a weird thing when the Watchmen movie came out in 2009. There it was, a cinematic adaptation of one of the most-loved superhero stories of all time and… it was bad. Mostly, according to comedian and uber-nerd Patton Oswalt, because it was too much like the comics it was based on.
If you were watching Twitter this past weekend, you might have seen comedian Patton Oswalt saying some surprising things. Offensive things. Hateful, even.
I would totally go to the theater for this.
The totally improvised, 7 1/2 minute filibuster from an episode of NBC's Parks & Recreation last month, in which Patton Oswalt outlines his vision of Star Wars: Episode VII (with Marvel crossovers) could not possibly have been more perfect, could it? Well, yes, it could, actually ...
This preview of this weeks episode of NBC’s Parks and Recreation comedy series has comedian/geek icon Patton Oswalt delivering an epic filibuster that outlines impossibly great ideas for the recently announced Episode VII of Star Wars. This was all improvised, too. It’s freakin’ great. J.J. Abrams, call this man.
Feels like everywhere I turn these days, I see Patton Oswalt. He's on Portlandia, he's killing it on Justified. He has a role in the hotly-anticipated-by-me game Metro Last Light.
