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

Almost no one wants to see that, plenty of people want to see semi sexy amazons. Output is unequal because demand is unequal. And besides that male bodies being more blocky & flat then females don't lend themselves to being in skimpy designs, it just looks awkwardly slapped on while with female...

Re: [Film] Alita: Battle Angel

Only heard bad things about the movie. Rumors of something close to 95% of it has been shot against a green screen in a warehouse in Austin & being very camp. I'm figuring it will feel like a "gritty Spy Kids" movie. I'll never forget the disappointment of my friend showing off some of...

The dude wants out. You don't talk about a "cool way to segue out" unless you've already got one foot out the door:

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

I've got high hopes for Aquaman as well. And I have zero knowledge of the character outside of the obvious jokes - he talks to fish who have nothing interesting to say & James Cameron directed the original Vince Chase version. James Wan has grown into a fine commercial director. Both of the two ...

Re: Rebuild is shallow tangent

Correct. No one has denied Anno is retelling the story of Eva. That's a given. He's retelling the story in a new form after over a decade's worth of new life experiences and from a very different mindset. But, you have been adamant in your absolute (and flawed) belief that Rebuild is replacing NGE w...

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

Critics are being allowed to express opinions on Twitter. No reviews for a while thought I think. Consensus seems to be the movie is actually fun. Has a lot of issues - story is a complete mess, the villain is an absolute bore, the reshoots are glaringly obvious - BUT it mostly works because the cas...

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

Re: Last Movie You Watched

I've decided if life should ever lead me back to teaching a class of high school kids film I would start the course with that movie. Hugo is just a complete delight. Also one of the only movies to properly get 3D. Sooooo of course it was a financial failure. Such is life. Went on a date to see Thor ...

Re: Blade Runner franchise

Honestly the key reason Blade Runner 2049 disappointed is the budget. There's little to no reason why the movie should have cost $150 million. I felt the marketing campaign was superb - perhaps they went after the wrong crowds because I felt the marketing for the film was ubiquitous & nonstop wh...

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

Disney's attempt to buy Fox is not happening (they want the AVATAR sequels). Talks fell through. Which is for the best. Monopolies are bad for business AND worse for consumers. Any small gains in "Oh joy, we get to see a weightless CG Wolverine have a weightless CG fight with Hulk" will qu...

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

Word on the street is the Justice League embargo lifts in the middle of the night (like 2am) Wednesday November 15th. Critics are forbidden from expressing their opinions until then & any who do would lose future privileges. Apparently WB put the word of Lord Warner into the critics who have see...

^A big part is how women in movies are shot. I watched all 140 minutes of Wonder Woman with a friend in theaters this summer and never once found myself going "there's her ass". A month or so later we went to another movie and a trailer for Justice League came out & one of the first im...

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

I wish I understood Warner Brothers logic behind their rather strict review embargos. I mean yeah, I'm positive Justice League will be a disaster so they want to silence that as long as they can but they have a weird relationship with the embargo rules. For example, they wouldn't allow critics to ex...

Re: Star Wars Episode II - A New Thread

Well, Disney has been allowed to monopolize things on the blockbuster level so much so that they're now at "Fuck You Levels" when it comes to everything. Disney refused to screen Thor: Ragnarok for the LA Times because of their very fair coverage in how the corporation is fucking over the ...

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

For you DC fans, Justice League held its first critic screening tonight at the WB lot. Critics aren't allowed to express their opinions in any form whether positive or negative until review embargo lifts - when that is is unknown - but there's usually a dingus who drops a hint early through their so...
