  1. Blade Runner Sequel

    I definitely find it superior to the original and I NEVER expected to say that.
  2. Blade Runner Sequel

    Save your pennies.
  3. Blade Runner Sequel

    More truth to that than there should be. And, 4K all the way. That film is gorgeous.
  4. General DC Discussion

    Whedon still set to direct Batgirl. After reading his WW script, I would very much rather he didn't.
  5. General Marvel Discussion

    Jude Law circles Captain Marvel
  6. DC Movies Crisis ? JUSTICE LEAGUE in Chaos ?

    I'm sorry, I simply must say no to Captain Starburst.
  7. DC Movies Crisis ? JUSTICE LEAGUE in Chaos ?

    I don't remember who it was that they were interviewing that was involved with TNG...David Carson, maybe, but he made the offhand comment that if a line was to be changed, they could talk about it all they wanted, but only someone on the Executive Producer tier could clear it once shooting started. The actor does what he's told and the director largely shoots what he's given.
  8. DC Movies Crisis ? JUSTICE LEAGUE in Chaos ?

    I don't either. These people are paid to do the best they can with what they're given. They rarely if ever have any input into what goes on film. I think they get asked because with the press junkets and such they're the easiest people to reach. No one seems to try to hunt down the producers and the writers to ask, "What the hell was going on in your head?"
  9. DC Movies Crisis ? JUSTICE LEAGUE in Chaos ?

    They just don't understand Superman. That's really what it boils down to. They think he has to become more like us, when the key is to create a story that gives us the ability to see what he is...which should be someone we want to work towards being. That hasn't existed on film since Reeve.
  10. DC Movies Crisis ? JUSTICE LEAGUE in Chaos ?

    Hah. At this point they're the ones with the more interesting story.
  11. DC Movies Crisis ? JUSTICE LEAGUE in Chaos ?

    There might be three people in the deepest parts of Siberia with no clue how Superman and Batman came to be.
  12. DC Movies Crisis ? JUSTICE LEAGUE in Chaos ?

    Yeah, but there's no way DC does that. Let Wonder Woman 2 go, then reboot Supes and Batman without fresh "origin stories."
  13. DC Movies Crisis ? JUSTICE LEAGUE in Chaos ?

    At the very least maybe eventually use the TV teams, who seem to "get it," audition the movie team. They really have to burn it all down.
  14. DC Movies Crisis ? JUSTICE LEAGUE in Chaos ?

    They stuck with him from crap film to crap film. I swear I don't understand it. Affleck's already gone, and they've already said that they're not going to try interconnecting all the different films, so they really should reboot Batman and Superman entirely with someone who understands the characters and doesn't think a superhero is into it for the free murder or publicity.
  15. DC Movies Crisis ? JUSTICE LEAGUE in Chaos ?

    No, sir. The audience deserved a better movie. But the DCEU stuck with Snyder through one trainwreck after another. Honestly, I bet a lot of the execs there were either ticked off, shocked, or both that people flocked to Wonder Woman. But they did. And they did because it was everything a WW movie should have been. There are no shortage of articles about how Zack Snyder sees superheroes as dark, opportunistic creatures, but one of the most telling bits is here: The Q&A touches on a lot of different topics, but one of the most striking parts of the discussion comes when Snyder talks about his dislike for comics without gore or sex. He said: Snyder not liking comic books where people don't kill each other explains his Superman; traditionally, Superman's entire existence is about inspiring and being bright and hopeful, but Snyder's iteration of the character kills someone in Man of Steel. Later in the interview, Snyder talks about Christopher Nolan's Batman trilogy, revealing that if he'd been at the helm, he would have gone a lot darker than Nolan did by incorporating prison rape: It's a mystery why Snyder believes that prison rape, sex, and death are what people want to see in superhero films — that comic book fans who love Superman really wanted to see him start killing people, or that Batman fans would really relish seeing the greatest detective alive not be able to tell the difference between a boat and a crime lord. Link There's more. There's always more. But it boils down to that audiences don't really have interest in Snyder's idea of who these people are. I don't. I don't even have an interest in anything Snyder does again after these glimpses into his Id. So, shock of shocks, people have abandoned his vision yet again. Add plentiful and poor CGI, and a new director in to try to piece something together so it's not clinically depressing you end up with a film that no one asked for or wants. The film didn't deserve a better fate; the heroes deserved a better film.
  16. The Music of Star Trek

    Yeah, thaaaaaaaaaaaat's not creepy or nuthin'.
  17. The Music of Star Trek

    Must you?
  18. The Music of Star Trek

    I pretty much lost any faith in Berman's creativity when it came to music when he canned Ron Jones for creating an actual score, and an atmospheric one, for BOBW
  19. Episode 1.9: “Into the Forest I Go” Discussion Thread

    Wha? Are you implying that Lorca is a ...disreputable sort?" He is a Starfleet Captain, sir, therefore above that sort of thing.
  20. Episode 1.9: “Into the Forest I Go” Discussion Thread

    Works for me. It's gotta be fairly tempting to remain. He was an outcast among his own, and I don't know that Lorca would necessarily cut him loose even if he knew.
  21. DC Movies Crisis ? JUSTICE LEAGUE in Chaos ?

    We don't need no Kevin Feige type. It'll be fine. Really.
  22. STAR TREK CONTINUES - The Final Episode Online

    Fair point. There are a lot of episodes of Voyager I've not gone back to since the first airing, and have no real need to do so. Budget cuts in S3 of TOS already hurt it, and I expect those would have continued and the show would have been strangled to death. So, I think I agree with that. Continues was a labor of love in every frame. I'll have to binge the season now that it's complete.
  23. DC Movies Crisis ? JUSTICE LEAGUE in Chaos ?

    $281.5M global. It's got a month to make money because once The Last Jedi drops, this thing is done. The only market it has left to open in is Japan, so this is looking pretty bad. DC cannot be happy.
  24. STAR TREK CONTINUES - The Final Episode Online

    Agreed on all counts.It always felt like I was watching TOS. I didn't roll my eyes. I didn't cringe, and, as someone who has sat through a LOT of fan work, that's the highest praise I can give it. I realize that Paramount's new format rules pretty much preclude anyone from ever attempting something of this scale again, but that really is okay. Because no one would ever come near it again even if they tried. Continues hefted the bar to the mountain top.
