    The Western lasted for longer than superhero movies have lasted to date though even they were never as big as the superhero movie is now for a variety of reasons.

    Some of the fading was certainly...
  2. I will say I really do not get the fan dislike of...

    I will say I really do not get the fan dislike of IM3 which really dealt with Stark's PTSD. He's from a world where technology we would call super tech exists and is "normal" or close to normal. ...
  3. I was referring to "right" in the sense of...

    I was referring to "right" in the sense of people's right to see what they want to see and if they choose to go see these movies more than any others, that is their choice. Of course, we are not...

    Okay, I admit this is a valid point. While most movies seem to get distribution, albeit a much shorter run than they would get without the MCU and similar movies, there are some movies that never...

    T

    That's highly questionable because the popularity of these movies has made them prolific and one could argue the opposite, that if you simply don't offer people a certain type of movie (the...

    I remember one reviewer said something along the lines of: RDJ doesn't just star in this movie. He almost singlehandedly IS this movie.

    I mentioned first impressions before. One thing I find...

    I don't know about the Shrike but with the Lensmen by the end of the series having literally millions of lensmen with intergalactic telepathic range, it doesn't really matter.

    But that's the problem right there. The Superman you love most and that I love most is a Superman from at least three or four realities and six decades ago.

    I see Dwayne Johnson was born in...
  9. Exactly. It doesn't parallel the story of Jesus...

    Exactly. It doesn't parallel the story of Jesus in every way or even in most ways. It just implies the similarity at some key points.

    Personally, I realized how ridiculous it was during...

    As far as I know, Donner was the first. He mentioned in a commentary that he even got death threats over it. Superman Returns just pushed it further and then Snyder's version. It started becoming...

    So this will be the second attempt to do a dark version of Fantasy Island? Ricardo Montalban was alive when the first remake was done and I remember he just said he wished them the best of luck. It...

    I think what frustrates them is that the MCU style are the types of movies the majority of the public wants. But it's always been that way. If PBS was airing a Shakespeare play at the same time an...

    I'm the opposite. I don't know anything about the Shrike. But the technology the Lensman have as standard is amazing. Others can probably define the tech in better detail than I can. Their main...

    It almost sounds like: he doesn't follow the decontructionist formula so there's no chance of a nomination. Joker is far more likely to get nominated because it much more conveys the mood that gets...

    Yeah, "Save my mother" would have sounded more natural. I don't know about you but I don't usually call my mother by her first name. It's instinct to say "Mom". Batman wouldn't know who Martha...

    I thought MoS was quite inspirational though also flawed. I thought BvS had a lot of good points but also flawed. JL was probably more flawed than either of them if only in that the studio lost...

    That's awesome though Rule 9 seems questionable. Yet my favorite was the one where Bugs Bunny subbed for the Road Runner although it turns out there were apparently a a lot of Bugs versus Wile E....

    That's true. You have people saying that these superhero movies are just a passing fad that are going to fade away anytime now and some of the most prolific of these people are the same people that...

    From what I've read, Batman was suffering from classic Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder and it's common for someone in that situation to encounter one simple thing that shocks him into realizing how...

    Which raises the point that Elsa is a major heroine for girls. I remember a little boy bragging that he has never seen Frozen because the hero is a giiiiirrrrrlll. LOL. But there are countless...

    I felt sorry for Wile E. He was just doing what it is the nature of a coyote to do except with Acme products which is where he made his big mistake.

    Yeah, these guys don't even get to blink before Clark has the Infinity Gauntlet and has stomped all the major players

    Well, if what's her name was in hearing range and could say, "I heard a rumor that you all surrender" but that would require time to say it and the HUGE No Limits Fallacy that it works on everybody. ...

    Once more we have evidence of how desperately we need a Like button.

    Complete agreement here.

    I don't want every Superman story or every version of Superman to be like MoS but I found that...

    I seriously doubt that Disney or the MCU has a plan to destroy Scorsese. Boseman is just responding to criticism.

    Jennifer Aniston and Jody Foster said things very similar. "Birdman" was...
