Get ready to have your mind blown — not only did Hans Zimmer compose the original animated movie, he won an Oscar for it.
You know what happens when they do that shit? You get Trouble my Mark Millar and the Dodsons. And Marvel has to disavow that shit so hard.
I was pretty disappointed by I2. It had a few moments, (the whole family acting as a team was generally great) and it started out strong, but it ended up having a weak villain with weak motivations (IMHO). Plus generally anytime mind control is used as a plot element I lose interest. It’s tired and I hate that they…
I think the turn on terminology goes back to The Thing prequel (remake). That’s the first point when I remember remakes being so toxic that studios started to respond. Basically still making reboots/ remakes, but making a token effort to acknowledge the previous movies. I think Jurassic World is a better example than…
The 1980s and 1990s. When you could sell a movie around a star — Tom Hanks, Julia Roberts, Kevin Costner, Sharon Stone, Eddie Murphy, Jodie Foster, Will Smith, Michelle Pfeiffer, Bruce Willis, Meg Ryan, Tom Cruise, Demi Moore, etc. — and people would pay to see those movies because those stars were in them, whether…
That was Gail Simone’s argument, too, when she took on the gig.
This really bothers me. Yeah, comics have evolved to the point where they tell much more mature stories than they did before, but the Vertigo imprint was always the place for the weird and eclectic to show up. We’ll either see less of those titles produced now or they’ll get lost in the DC mass.
Counterpoint: Spider-Man 2 is actually not a strong film, it’s just remembered more fondly than it should be.
(I posted before I was done) And while everything is derivative to a degree, I’ve never seen another movie be ridiculed so much for the story being a rip off of kids’ stories. However I agree - the fact that there was no follow up was a big part, but I wonder if that was self-fulfilling in that nobody was dying for…
Yeah, Sam seemed like he was everywhere and then nowhere. And to answer your question, the Netflix B sci-fi movie “The Titan”, so yeah he didn’t exactly stay in the a-list of leading men.

I loved it, too. I like that behind the scenes stuff that mostly gets brushed aside. It was really neat that they spent so much time showing how everyone was willing to use these people with no sense of irony. And it really helped lay out the case for murdering Coin.
But then again, we still haven’t perfected the CGI body/real head thing. The only time it works is when the actors wear a practical mock up of the suit that is then painted over (like, say, Iron Man), instead of just a blue mocap suit (like with Cyborg).
Four words for you my friend:
It still works because many of the the people who hate Sam have no Hydra affiliation. They’re just fucking racists. It’s no coincidence that “Take Back The Shield” sounds just like the racist refrain of “Take Back The Country.”
I agree. And while I realize that Kirby included a single reference to Superman having existed in Kamandi’s past, he really feels shoehorned in to the DC Universe as a whole. If often feels as if writers just want to show off that they know this somewhat esoteric character.
Ellie Sattler was and will forever be my hero.
I’d be stunned if it did. But it seems like a natural inroad. Something like Firefly, but instead of River/Simon they pick up Jaya/Jace and Chandra.
No dissing on Mr. Johnston, please. For one thing, 3 was the only one that really made my kids scream and demand that the TV be turned off.
I still maintain that III is a much more entertaining movie than the frustrating, obnoxious Lost World. Stupid, absolutely. But entertaining.
