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

I wonder if “I realized I didn’t have a story” means “I couldn’t figure out how to make a police commissioner’s plucky daughter who follows in the footsteps of the world’s greatest detective into a brainwashed killer ballerina who can’t get pregnant.”

Re: All Evageeks should watch HBO's True Detective

Weird fiction has a long tradition of uncredited borrowing that’s usually treated as homage, so the lifting from Robert W. Chambers is par for the course. Unfortunately Pizzolato lifted a significant number of Rust’s lines and arguments from the world of contemporary weird fiction author Thomas Ligo...

Re: All Evageeks should watch HBO's True Detective

Pizzilato is a plagiarist who stole some of the best ideas and lines of dialogue in TD S1 from another, living author. That makes me a little leery. On the other hand, I actually liked S2 and it could have been really good if it had gone through the writing process a little more and there wasn’t a w...

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

That’s a good point. Batgirl is a perfect vehicle for another female-helmed film.

Re: Last Movie You Watched

Saw Annihilation tonight. Great, atmospheric horror-sci-fi, very dreamlike and intense.

Re: All Evageeks should watch HBO's True Detective

I wonder whether they’ll pivot back to the weird fiction feel of the first season or turn away from it?

As much as I loved S1 I think it might be better if each season is totally different.

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

Saw Black Panther Sunday afternoon, and I'm still in shock. I refuse to believe how good it was, especially after hating and being burned by superhero films since the mid 2000s. The cinematography, writing, characters, pacing and effects (except for the terrible looking cg rhinos) were all spectacu...

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

Well, we can agree that it was fucked at the start. :devil: What the can do now is do a Crisis movie and reboot. That introduces your audience to the concept of "These are the same characters portrayed by the same actors but they're different people". Then you make a DC Universe film serie...

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

I’m rewatching Justice League.

They just have recut the shit out of this movie. How did Bruce grow a full beard flying from Gotham City to Iceland?

Makes me really wonder what happened in the original version. Something made him stop being Batman?

I read that as She Won't Get Far on Foot and assumed it was some kind of neo-grindhouse horror.

Re: [Film] The Trailers & Upcoming Films Thread

I saw the Ready Player One trailer before Black Panther last night and I'm very excited for this movie. I don't care if it's good or it follows a by the numbers hero's journy story, I want to see a big battle with hordes of pop culture and video game characters.

It's not like dickening MPEs takes a lot of work. They've been cocky characters since the very beginning.

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

SPOILER: Show
The movie is an essay on why the "dark" version of Batman etc. evinces weakness, not power.

Even though the movie ends with a duel, the ending is ultimately about a superhero who wins without fighting. Or at least does something about his signature issue without fighting.

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

They took the "Marvel origin movie" formula of "Hero has badass moments, has a big fight, loses their powers, has to get them back in a moment of personal crisis, and fights a guy with the same suit/powers" and made it really fresh and well executed. Of all the 'first' Marvel mov...

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

I saw Black Panther this afternoon. It's a strong drama that says something about real world issues and takes some risks to do so, and a great action movie. The script is really tight and the direction and pacing are excellent. Marvel is really stepping up their game between Ragnarok , this movie, a...

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

Last night a cosmic spacefaring whale-like spirit came to me in a dream and said DC should reboot the DCCU with Tom Hanks portraying Superman.
