HANCOCK COSTUME IS ORIGINAL

Did you see Will Smith's costume for his upcoming superhero spoof HANCOCK? I couldn't help notice the uncanny similarities to the X-MEN [movie] uniforms.... which in turn were boring ripoffs from PLANET OF THE VAMPIRES. I understand Hancock is a spoof (and ripoff of the comic MAJOR BUMMER), but come on... could they have atleast TRIED to come up with something original? Homage does not mean COPY. Oh where has all the talent and imagination gone?

*Planet of the Vampires! 1965 Italian Sci-Fi movie which rocks! ALIEN is weirdly similar at moments! Ridley Scott and writer Dan O'Bannon have said they never heard of PotV, let alone seen it, when making ALIEN. Rent it today!

The reason is simple. Lame-o producers. Definitely.
