The studios need to dramatically alter their thinking.

I’d love to see Dune, The Batman, and all the upcoming Marvel movies in a huge theater with a big audience. It’s an entirely different experience. But I don’t want to sit in a human petri dish for 2-3 hours at a clip.

The films lost me in the early scene where young Conan, escaping from wolves, hides in a cave filled with treasure, and a skeleton holding a jewel-encrusted sword. Conan takes the sword and ... just leaves. In REH’s story, the skeleton comes alive and fights Conan for the sword.

With all due respect, Mr. Jodorowsky:

Excellent point. The only thing worse are the Sony films, where they are determined to build films around every villain in the Spider-Man universe.

Sadly, this is nothing new.

Smallville ... with no Superman (that last CGI scene doesn’t count)

Gotham ... with no Batman (ditto)

One of their next films should open with our heroes grieving for a recently deceased T’Challa. He deserves a cinematic sendoff.
