Friday night plans already

This Friday I am definitely going to see Constantine. It is based on the Hellblazer comics, and is about the character John Constantine (originally created by Alan Moore, who is a genius). John Constantine is an anti-hero, which is why I like him. It will be interesting to see whether they stick with the questionable morality he displays in the comic or whether Hollywood white-washes his story. They've already changed one major thing, which is that John Constantine is supposed to be blond. He is supposed to look like Sting, and Keanu Reeves looks nothing like Sting. A small thing to some people, but a big deal to comic purists. And what, there are no good blond actors in Hollywood? I don't think so. But it's a comic book movie, so I'll see it anyway. Plus, it has Rachel Weisz, who I think is a very good actress.
