Cause I think I might be guilty of it.

The upside to this story is, although a movie encouraged a kid to go out and do a stupid thing, at least he didn’t get hurt or hurt anyone else. Instead he just comes across as kind of weird and damaged.

YAY!

Todd Kapcsos (how the hell am I supposed to pronounce that “c?”) was out in small Pennsylvania town just lurking in the bushes and practicing some ninja moves in his ninja outfit when some folks called the cops because he was creeping people out.

When asked why he was doing such nonsensical things, Todd actually had a pretty decent response. He said, “There’s not enough police officers. I mean there’s not enough. The community should do something rather than sit back.”

This comes in the wake of a stabbing death in the small town of Moxham. When teenagers are angling to solve a city’s crime problem, rather than contribute to it, it’s time to staff up police.

Jim Carrey Critical Of The Violence In ‘Kick-Ass 2′ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/jim-carrey-critical-of-the-violence-in-kick-ass-2/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/jim-carrey-critical-of-the-violence-in-kick-ass-2/#comments Mon, 24 Jun 2013 04:29:14 +0000 Penn Collins http://www.screenjunkies.com/?p=255457 Still no criticisms for 'Fun with Dick and Jane'?

Jim Carrey has taken to Twitter to let the world know that he’s not feeling too great about the plethora of violence in the upcoming Kick-Ass 2, citing the Sandy Hook massacre as a new point of context in his decision.

Graphic novel author Mark Millar has offered that there is nothing in the final cut that wasn’t in the screenplay before filming started, according to The Huffington Post.

Regardless, it’s unclear if Carrey’s statement is more of a criticism, distancing, or just a demonstration of a newfound sensitivity to media violence, but perhaps Jim Carrey would be willing to admit that a few other violent programs and films are probably bigger culprits here than a satirical superhero movie stemming from a thinking man‘s comic book.

In 2010, a film came into our lives so blood-soaked and politically-incorrect that we were powerless not to love it. And now, we get a second helping.

Though they’ve tweaked their names a little bit in the past few years, Aaron Taylor-Johnson and Chloe Moretz are back in fighting shape to take on the criminal sleaze of New York City. However, Christopher Mintz-Plasse is back too and out for revenge by reinventing himself as the world’s first supervillian, The Motherfucker. Jim Carrey also joins the cast as another wannabe hero taking back the streets with the help of his well-trained dog. I’m a sucker for a dog in costume. God forbid any harm fall on that animal. We’ll find out June 28th.

The 2010 movie Kick-Ass was a surprise hit, earning more money than any movie featuring unfamiliar “superhero” characters (including children) doing horrifyingly violent things would ever be expected to. But, nothing changes mainstream acceptability like success, so now there are plans for a sequel, at least according to the first movie’s star Aaron Johnson:

“It’s pretty much set to go, this fall. I think now Chloe [Grace Moretz] and Chris [Mintz-Plasse] are on board. I’m certainly set up to do it. Jeff Wadlow is to direct. Yeah, I think it’s going to happen.”

Evidently the director of the first movie, Matthew Vaughn, has moved on to bigger and brighter superhero franchises with X-Men: First Class. But Johnson has gone on to confirm that the sequel will retain the hard-R-rated violence that made the first movie so, uh, R-rated. Add to that a likely cameo from Nicolas Cage, and it looks like all the fans of the first Kick-Ass will be mighty pleased with Kick-Ass 2. (The Playlist)
