That's where it could really shine for DC to have well established characters butting heads. It's been said that Superman is a boring character, as the invincible boy scout. Up against other established heroes with different rules to him you can see him challenged in a way Lex Luthor or Zod never could. » 9/18/14 5:30pm Yesterday 5:30pm

You know, an Obi Wan film with Ewan McGregor and the ghost of Qui Gon set between III and IV could be amazing. Think of the personal demons, the failures; you could get an amazing character piece out of the man tortured from the prequels becoming more or less at peace with himself for the original trilogy. Plus,… » 9/16/14 7:15am Tuesday 7:15am

Yeah, I wouldn't say that Iron Man 2 is good, but it's fun enough not to be skipped when I Marvel binge. The Incredible Hulk, I'd argue, is a better film, but it's not fun enough to usually make my schedule. » 9/15/14 4:03pm Monday 4:03pm

I feel like Moffat rage is, to a certain extent, justified, not just for the quality of writing but also for the way he's treated the fanbase, complaining and insulting for a long while now (pretty much since the tide turned against him), and for his disregard for the viewership in the way he flat out lies about the… » 9/05/14 2:29pm 9/05/14 2:29pm

An origin story is a good way of indulging in the 'why' of the… » 8/28/14 4:31pm 8/28/14 4:31pm

Not a comic reader, so no ties to the source material (I grew up watching Lois and Clark, so that may show you where my head is at re: the whole thing). I'm not sure 'no jokes' is a good policy for ANY movie... but actually going for gritty is probably quite a smart idea. With Marvel Studios covering the very other… » 8/27/14 5:02pm 8/27/14 5:02pm

Partly, I was jesting (not get that from the 49 hours thing?), and partly I was allowing for for FURTHER extended editions. I don't own any of them, but it seemed at a glance that the LOTR trilogy had been extended further for Blu-Ray (although looking again it seems that might just be credits... an additional 45… » 8/26/14 4:44pm 8/26/14 4:44pm
