Re: Superhero/Comic Based Films & Tv - Vol.2

Just came out of the movie. My first impression, which I’ll spoiler for safety’s sake Its a competent movie. When Snyder and Whedon meet the waves sort of cancel each other out. Visually, it has enough flair to avoid the common and correct criticism of Whedon that his direction looks TV quality, but...

Re: Superhero/Comic Based Films & Tv - Vol.2

A period piece Superman would be great but I think the idea of the Lois-centric film works better if set in the modern day. Through her we can see how Superman is received through social media, etc. Hell, make it contemporary. No hidebound Perry White at the Daily Planet building in down town Metrop...

^ Yikes! Looks like someone is someone is sorting through some internalized demons through these straw-men arguments. Reading through this thread, it doesn't seem like anyone with which you're discussing has made any of the claims that you're trying to debunk. Objectification works in several ways,...

Re: Superhero/Comic Based Films & Tv - Vol.2

Almost no one wants to see that, This, as much as the camera pointed at a character's ass, is what male gaze is all about. It's not appealing to straight men, so no one wants to see it. It's appealing to straight men, so it doesn't need any justification beyond that. As a straight man, I still want...

Re: Superhero/Comic Based Films & Tv - Vol.2

That's spot on and Xena Warrior Princess only got away with it because it had time to build it's characters through out the series and stared well clear of leering objectified shots and the amazon talking was always a human being not a sex object and that was made really clear in every episode but ...

Re: Superhero/Comic Based Films & Tv - Vol.2

The Spartans in 300 are from Miller’s designs which intentional evoke the heroic nude of Greek pottery designs. I don’t feel like writing the essay so I’ll summarize: The same thing can have contextual meaning. Naked yelling Spartan warriors project power, half naked Amazon warriors are reduced to t...

Re: Writer's Choice (Please Read OP)

From time to time I've flirted with the idea of doing a Crisis of Infinite Shinjis: Redux but after writing Chapter 6 of that work I felt like I'd said everything I could say.

My actual favorite, though, is Samsara even if it's overly sappy, sentimental, and cheesy.

Re: Superhero/Comic Based Films & Tv - Vol.2

No, you can't tell a Logan type story with Superman. You can tell a story about a heroic sacrifice, sure. You can tell a story about Superman facing the end of his life and making choices to define his legacy. You can tell a story about Superman confronting a world whose ideals are changing, and so ...

Re: Superhero/Comic Based Films & Tv - Vol.2

The trailers for MoS and Suicide Squad make me want to see Superman and Suicide Squad movies made by the people who created the trailers instead of the movies themselves.

Re: Comic Books!

Also this is about a studio/distributor/streaming service going into print, so I guess it goes into the "print comic books" rather than "media adapted from comics" zone:

All I really remember about him is that I found his "decompressed storytelling" in USM to be tedious and boring sometimes.
