New Smurfs Trailer…And I’m Terrified

Here’s the newest trailer to the much-anticipated live action/animated Smurfs Movie.  Go on. Watch it.  I’ll wait…

It’s terrifying! What is going on?! I have fond nostalgic memories of watching the smurfs on saturday mornings. I’ll admit, Hank Azaria’s Gargamel looks like he walked straight out of the cartoon, but what is going on with the smurfs? From the dialogue in this trailer, it seems like the smurfs are trying to be a bit edgy. Really? Are Smurfs edgy? The Chipmunks can be edgy. In fact, everything about this trailer reminds me of the Chipmunks (with an evil wizard): The animation style, the plot, the destruction of my childhood. What worries me most is the giant 3D in the title. Do we want to see these fury blue demons jumping out at us? I know I don’t. Does anyone else find these new fangled smurfs a tad too creepy, or is it just me over reacting to another attempt at pouring our nostalgia down the throats of a new generation?

Papa Smurf wants to steal your soul!

I was surprised when I heard a live action smurf movie was in the works, but I let the thoughts fade into other fandoms and possible (but not likely) my real and actual life.  That was until today.  Behold the first Image of THE SMURFS Continue reading The Smurfs are back…and I’m Terrified
