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

Let me ask you this, was Jet Li's evil Emperor in The Mummy 3 racist? No. Because in that movie, Chinese people are present among both the heroes and the villains. Nowhere is it stated or even suggested that the villain is evil because of his ethnicity. The Mandarin is different. Him being an evil ...

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

It's a truism about female movie character-- that they can be a mother OR a competent heroine, but never both at the same time. Joss Whedon is especially guilty of this.

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

The sad thing is, Disney as a company was founded on risk-taking endeavors. Snow White ? Pinocchio ? Fantasia ? Those were all risky movies by the standards of their time. Disney used to be all about taking risks and doing things no other movie studio had done before. What happened to them? How did ...

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

I've just become very disillusioned with Disney over the past few years. The sad thing is, I actually like a lot of Disney's movies. It's just that nowadays, all of those movies come from the same-old, same-old half-dozen series. There's no novelty. They weren't always like this. Say what you will a...

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

The “tarnishing” comment is less about quality than it is public image. Disney has branded itself 100% on being all about family friendly entertainment because that’s where the most money is at. They’ll allow their PG-13 films to dip into darker material but mostly in a surface level way. Disney ha...

Re: Last Movie You Watched

The original novel would be ideal for a Westworld-style prestige adaptation. It’s not a happy fun story about how dinosaurs are really cool and venture capitalists are wizards until greedy fat men and lawyers ruin things. Plus they could actually adapt Crichton’s sequel, to which the second film be...

Re: What anime are you watching right now? Summer 2016 to now

Remember how I said I hated Elfen Lied ? How I thought it was a pretentious, hypocritical mess of a story that wasted a potentially interesting premise? Well, a couple days ago--purely for shits and giggles-- I started Lynn Okamoto's other teenage-girls-with-terrifying-superpowers series, Brynhildr ...

Oh, I'm not talking about Frozen itself. I'm talking about the 20-minute cartoon about Olaf they put in front of Coco.

Of course, the less said about that blasted Frozen cartoon before it, the better. . .

Re: Evangelion Pic Thread 10: The Society for the Appreciation Of The Premium Girl (and her friends)

So how do I make that appear in this forum? It looks to me like Imgur has changed. It used to be they had a special format that you could copy and paste into message boards and forums.

At least it won't be Michael Bay. Frankly, they can have Hasbro for all I care.

Re: [Film] The Trailers & Upcoming Films Thread

Yes, but there are some legal ramifications that even Disney can't escape. At the end of the day, no matter how powerful they get, they're still a company and still subject to the same regulations as any other company. As for the possibility of them buying another major movie studio after they've bo...

Re: [Film] The Trailers & Upcoming Films Thread

^ Given the amount of "fuck you" money they have, they could become a literal monopoly in the next five years with some careful dealings. Though they already kinda are a monopoly. They won't, and they aren't. There's a legal definition of what a monopoly is, and Disney, huge as they are, ...
