The Best Cartoon / Adult Swim Shows

The criteria for being on this list is very simple; the show must last more than one season, and the show must be consistently funny.

1. Futurama
2. Aqua Teen Hunger Force
3. Family Guy
4. Squidbillies
5. Metalocalypse
6. Harvey Birdman
7. Venture Bros.
8. Robot Chicken
9. The Boondocks

I would have elaborated more, even made it a three part post, but I’m working on the HB awards which will be tough enough. Or should I bother, since it seems that blogging is pretty much dead?

Movies Coming in 2010

Boob Job – Just sounds good.

Colossus – Possible X-Men spin off?

Devil May Cry – Another video game movie that will probably suck, they always do.

G.I. Joe – Following in the trend of revitalizing childhood TV shows into big budget blockbuster movies. Is it just me, or should some shows like G.I. Joe be left alone? Isn’t it enough that it was a great cartoon growing up, now it has to be something totally different?

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hollows

Hawaii Five-0 – This 12 season TV show is being repackaged, just like every other TV show from 30 years ago. Lets get some original ideas injected into Hollywood instead of recycling old movies and TV shows.

Hercules – Hopefully Brock Lesnar won’t try to play Hercules in this one. Instead, I recommend Chinese Hercules.

Mighty Mouse – Another repackaged blah blah blah.

Mortal Kombat: Devistation – The first Mortal Kombat movie was one too many.

Puss In Boots – Will it be too much that this movie is coming out the same year as the next Shrek? Will anybody care since Shrek 3 sucked so badly?

Rainbow Six – Video game movies, once again, don’t work. Hopefully someday, someone will prove me wrong and make a good video game movie.

Sherlock Holmes – This could actually be a very good movie, but we’ll have to wait and see.

Shrek 4 – This will have to be an amazing movie to overcome the badness of Shrek 3.

Underdog – Good cartoon, bad G rated repack. Also, didn’t this already happen?

Untitled Clive Barker / Edgar Allan Poe Project – Clive is arguably the finest horror movie man in the business. No matter if he’s a producer, director, or writer the movies are generally very good, so this should be a movie to look forward to. He’s also writing/producing a remake of Hellraiser (due out in 2008).

Untitled Justice League of America Project – Most likely the Batman/Superman movie everyone’s been speculating about.

Bryan Singer is set to product, direct, and write the new Superman movie (due out in 2009) Superman: The Man of Steel. Chris Nolan is set to direct and write the next Batman movie, The Dark Knight, which will deal greatly with the Joker (due out in 2008).
