I watched the original animated Æon Flux on MTV, but I have no idea how closely the film followed the original, because I don’t believe I ever saw a single episode while sober.

Charlize Theron is too pretty to be Æon Flux. Julia Roberts is homely enough, but hardly the action star type. Angelina maybe? I’m wracking my brain to think of who could have been a better Æon Flux, but I’m coming up blank, so I guess Charlize was okay.

Jonny Lee Miller should be in more movies. I have no facts to back up this assertion, other than how humpable he was in Trainspotting and Hackers.

A friend of mine from college once told me that he had a dream in which he was sexually violated by me and Æon Flux…flattering? Or disturbing? Both? Weren’t there lesbian parts in the original Æon Flux? The same lady directed who directed Girlfight and Jennifer’s Body directed this movie, so WHY weren’t there any lesbian scenes???
