    @ T_Lexi (from yesterday)

    On the strength of your recommendation, I did go looking for “Super 8.” It is an enjoyable movie. That opening train wreck scene was a bit “over the top,” as they say, and I would be willing to bet they got their inspiration for it from the “Final Destination” films.

    If you’ve never seen any of those, watch the opening scenes and then skip right to the end scene. You won’t miss much in the middle.

    I’d bet money the cast and special effects people had a lot of fun thinking up the strangest ways to slaughter the characters.

    I would’ve thought red hair dye.

    If the Little Mermaid started a fight, would that be Arial combat?
    (I’ll duck now.)

    Since Philly is inland, she’s more of a Rusalka.

    Yep, I’d think the heirs of Hans Christian Anderson would have a stronger case against Disney than Disney would have against Mark. Funny how they conveniently forgot to put the “Hans Christian Anderson’s” In front of "Little Mermaid in the title. At least when Disney appropriated “Bambi” and “Pinnochio” they originally gave the authors credit in the title.

    : ) Glad you enjoyed “Super 8.” (I think we noticed that about the train wreck sequence also.) I wasn’t into any of the “Final Destination” films – I felt as if I saw enough just viewing trailers for them. Although I’d certainly agree about everyone involved having a gleeful time with the various deaths. : ) I get a huge chuckle out of all the fun the writers of the “Bones” TV series have with the opening splat and/or gore scenes!

    I think even if today’s copyright laws were in effect when Andersen wrote “The Little Mermaid”, his copyright would have expired before the movie was filmed. Andersen died in 1875. Still it would be nice if Disney gave him credit.

    I had a different take. From the last panel, I thought she looked like Cathy. I was thinking she wants to be Cathy when she grows up (like Calvin became Frazz).

    It’s always bugged me that nowhere in our beloved Airplane do they give credit to Arthur Haley or Flight into Danger, the book/teleplay it was based on.
