|Twilight Spiderman? (8) | Posted on July 8, 2012, 10:11 a.m.|
|'The Sam Raimi film had just as much of an emphasis on the romance. Apparently every film with a romantic relationship in it is Twilight now.'|
Anyone who knows anything about super heroes will tell you that romance has always been part of the equation since 'The Yellow Kid in McFadden's Flats'. I mean seriously, this is nothing new. Characters like Superman, Batman, and Spider-Man have had love interests WAY before Stephanie Meyer, and The Gossip Industry corrupted an entire generation of young girls to admire dangerous, 'boy band' looking loners with secret night lives.
'Thor had the romance plot with Jane Foster.
Iron Man had...Piper Pots, and a half a dozen other girls...
Captain America had Peggy Carter.
Hulk had Betty Ross.
Hawkeye seems to have Black Widow.'
Superman has Lois Lane, Batman has had probably A dozen other girls with Catwoman being the only one who's his equal despite being a thief.
'You take the romance out of the equation, what do you get? TDK and The Avengers.'
Even 'The Dark Knight' has Rachael, who dies in the explosion, that resulted in Harvey's face being scarred.
'Bottom line is screw emo scenes in superhero movies, Hulk done it twice and twice it failed. We just want Hulk smash! Same with other superheroes, we just want them to kick butt.'
A super hero movie can't just be all action. You have to have A little bit of humor, pathos, drama, tragedy, and of course, romance. Of course all of them can work if handled well. While I'm still on the fence with 'Amazing Spider-Man', romance is nothing new for Spidey.

|I ask this because I've been seeing an aggressive trend from the opposing side for the later part of the decade. Because as we all know, MTV, Disney Channel, and E! have been 'dictating' to us that girls have box office power, and despite how nerds have been dominating the entertainment landscape, the douchbag jocks, and starry eyed cheer leaders still have more power than they do with junk like 'Transformers', 'Fast & Furious', 'Twilight', 'American Idol', 'Jersey Shore', 'The Kardashians', and Disney Channel tripe . ('Like, get lost, Scott Pilgrim! Edward is SOOOO hot!') Proving how much my cynicism has been growing over female targeted entertainment this past decade. What do you think?
|Katy Perry Part of Me 2-day total: estimated $5.8m (22) | Posted on July 8, 2012, 4:02 a.m.|
|'Why was there a Justin Bieber movie? Why was there a Hannah Montana movie? Why was there a Glee movie?'|
Because The Gossip Industry (MTV, Disney Channel, E!, ect.) want to rub it in our faces with they're delusional assumption that 'idiot tween girls' rule the world.
'I personally find it obnoxious. I mean, she hasn't really done anything noteworthy to grant her an actual film. What's the point of it?'
It's all part of The Gossip Industry's plan to make otherwise lackluster pop stars bigger than Christ, and to make anything that's normally considered 'hugely popular' seem insignificant. Kinda like reverse gender role in A way.'
'I harbor no fondness for her music, but I'd rather have had the Katy Perry movie do well than the new Spider-man movie, truth be told.'
As much as I'm on the fence with 'Amazing Spider-Man', I don't want to live in A world where Katy Perry, Justin Beiber, Miley Cyrus, or The Jonas Brothers are bigger than Spider-Man, Batman, or The Avengers. But apparently, that's what MTV, Disney Channel, and E! want right now.
|Movie Bob hits the nail on the head with his review of amazing spider-man (15) | Posted on July 7, 2012, 5:36 p.m.|
|I usually like Movie bob, but have mixed opinions on his criticisms toward 'Amazing Spider-Man'. After seeing the movie myself, I do admit that I have A few issues with it, but it did have some things I liked about it. Overall, it was a mixed bag. Bob does make A point that 'Classic Nerdy' Peter Parker would be just as much an anachronism as Captain America would be in today's world, and while Andrew Garfield's appearance, and hair bares some resemblance to everyone's most hated vampire, at least he had A reason to climb into Gwen's bedroom window, and at least he didn't watch her sleep in bed. I will say this, At least Garfield got to crack jokes more than Tobey McGuire did in the Raimi films. While I still LOVE the Raimi films for they're iconic depiction of Spider-Man's world, (Yes, even the third one) I'm still on the fence with this one. While 'Amazing Spider-Man' isn't as good as Raimi's films, it's at least better than Ang Lee's 'Hulk', 'X-Men: The Last Stand', or 'Superman Returns'. It's not as Good as 'Iron Man', 'Batman Begins', 'Thor', 'Captain America', or 'The Dark Knight'. Heck, it's certainly no 'Avengers'. It's pretty much somewhere in the middle.

'Marvel > DC. Everybody knows it. DC sucks'
Marvel does A much better job at bringing in talent who know what their doing, and understand their characters as far as movies go. Not all their movie have been great, but the good definitely outweighs the bad. Warner Bros. has A spotty track record when it comes to DC heroes. Outside of Warner Bros. Animation, their track record with DC has been pretty hit, or miss. Only Superman, and Batman have made the most impact as far as cinema goes, but even they have their fair share of stinkers. Warners should thank their lucky stars they have Nolan on board. Other than that, DC, and Warner Bos. have quite an uphill battle if they're ever gonna reach the same level as Marvel in terms of box office success,.

(Even though it'll probably earn another undeserved 'Best Movie' award from MTV next year.) That would be pretty pathetic. Yeah, it'll probably make alot of money, but still, that would be pathetic, and kinda funny, too.

Very good point. Maybe if he was already 17, this wouldn't be an issue. Leaving people to raise questions of pedophilia. Then again, certain people in 'the gossip industry' already act like they're 17. Yeah, the media hype that this is gonna be aggravating, but thank god this is the last one, and that 'Catching Fire' will fill 'Twilight's November spot next year. All I hope is that 'The Hobbit', or 'Wreck It Ralph' can steal 'Breaking Dawn's thunder.
|WEEKEND BOX OFFICE: Brave #1 with $66,700,000 (21) | Posted on June 25, 2012, 3:51 a.m.|
|'The only reason it did well is because of the Pixar label just like how Final Fantasy XIII (which is also a feminist game) did well due to the Final Fantasy brand. Hell Cars 2 also did well even despite horrid reviews. That Pixar brand is only NOW beginning to rot and decay into worthlessness because the audience is too forgiving.'|
Proving that even A mediocre Pixar movie is still better than your average Disney Channel movie.

'Men for the most part still rule the world. So honestly who cares.'
Not as much as they use to. 'Twilight' still proves that women may take their place. Well, idiot women anyway.

|Marc Webb's new Spider-Man is the superhero film for the Twilight generation (14) | Posted on June 23, 2012, 7:50 a.m.|
|'When I first saw his hair months ago I immediately thought of Twilight.'|
I thought the exact same thing. Garfield's hair screamed 'Robert Pattinson'. That, along with the fact that this is A reboot so soon in the franchise's life made me kinda cynical at first.
'While Raimi got fanboys drooling with Kirsten Dunst in a rain-soaked vest top, Webbs leading lady remains clothed and dry. Instead, the camera ogles Garfield, whose enviable glutes are showcased quite magnificently in his skin-tight bodysuit. Raimis films were for the teenage boys who used to dress up in Spider-Man pyjamas; Webbs is for girls whose other halves may soon be dressing up in Spider-Man pyjamas for their benefit.'
Part of Spider-Man's appeal is that he's A geek's wish fulfillment fantasy. We all can identify with Peter Parker, and the challenges he faces in his life both in, and out of costume. We want to succeed, get the girl, beat the bad guy, and still handle life's everyday challenges. Yet, no matter how much he does overcome the odds, it's still not enough. That's why we love Spidey.
'Then theres his needle-sharp young girlfriend, Gwen Stacy (Emma Stone), who wants to get under his skin even more than that radioactive arachnid did; find out what it is that makes his Spidey-senses tingle. Amid all of the soul-searching and lip-biting, it suddenly struck me: Webb has created the first superhero movie aimed primarily at women.'
As dreadful as that may be, it sounds like this movie still keeps the basic elements that make Spider-Man so endearing. Maybe this could work. Just so long as the male population doesn't become A minority as A result. Besides, spandex clad heroes are always better than emo vampires.

No, it's how I cope with the crap in this world.
'Fortunately as you can see by that Amazon review, there are a lot of sensible women who view 50 Shades of Grey and Twilight as trash. If anything, I think it was probably a woman who derived the term "mommy porn" for it (I first heard the term from a girl myself). I just don't get women who like these books. They would rather be submissive and be in an abusive relationship instead of being a stronger, independent woman like Katniss, Merida, Hermione, and Korra (Legend of Korra)?'

Indeed! Especially if it's tripe that makes all women act like school girls! Yes, we geek out over our stuff, but when you see women on 'Good Morning America' gush over it openly, it's kinda pathetic.
'"Will 50 Shades of Grey be the next Twilight? Aka "mommy porn?""
If my wife and her corny friends are any indicator, then I give a resounding YES!'
Because we can't have women thinking for themselves, being self reliant, and leading revolutions against government tyranny with 15th century weaponry, nor should they become interested in super heroes, cartoons, anime, and video games.
Crank out the next 'girly porn' novel to distract them, and bring them back to their place in society. (I.E. co-dependent, weak minded fashion obsessed victims in abusive relationships with glittering fairies.)
'Great, now women will have even more unrealistic expectations for men.'
Because as we all know, The Gossip Industry has so much influence or power over women's emotions, wishes and views.

Just like how men wonder why women rule the world.
'I know nothing about it, but it will make more $$$ than The Avengers did.'

Oh yeah, let's reboot something 'good'. That's smart. I think The Transformers need A reboot waaay more than those two movies.
As for 'Twilight', I've had enough of that series to last me A lifetime, but if it ever does get 'rebooted', they should explain the whole 'sparkle' nonsense, and how these sissy vampires can become 'day walkers'. Also, make it scary, and not glorify the pedophilia, beastiality, and 'early marriage' nonsense that give these movies their bad rep.

But seriously, that would be pretty bad. As much as I like most 80's rock, it doesn't offer anything as substantial as rock from previous decades. 50's rock was about rebellion, 60's rock was about revolution, and 70's rock was about trying to survive the wreckage left from the 60's. 80's rock was about wallowing in it's own self indulgence without having anything to back it up. In other words, 80's rock is the musical 'Larry Tate'.

I would like to see super hero movies try this sometime, but only if the story has so much to cover that it can only be told in two movies. That could evolve super hero movies beyond their current status as self contained stories. 'Harry Potter' did this well, but 'Twilight' only did this just to get more money.
As for an extended cut of 'The Avengers', I would definitely go see it if they released it in theaters.

I think super hero movies should take A cue from the 'young adult' movies that tell their stories in multiple parts to cover as much ground as they can in A timely fashion rather than cram too much into one movie.
As for 'The Dark Knight Rises', I'm looking forward to it, but I'm also concerned about how well it does. 'The Avengers' surpassed the last movie's box office gross in A shorter amount of days, and if it doesn't even come close to 'Avengers' box office numbers, even if it gets massive critical praise, hard core fans will see it as A failure. Here's hoping things go well.

|I kinda feel sorry for Kitsch being in two box office bombs this year. I feel even more sorry for 'John Carter' even though I honestly had no interest in seeing it. Mostly because it's something more bold, and daring from Disney, and not another 'tween girl' targeted waste of celluloid. Most importantly, for anyone who knows, 'John Carter' was the blueprint for nearly every science fiction story, and pop culture phenomenon we've gotten in the past 100 years from 'Flash Gordon' to 'Superman' to 'Star Wars', to Super Mario Bros.', and when it finally made it to the screen, it failed to make much of an impact. Granted, some people liked the film, others didn't. What ultimately doomed 'John Carter' was that it got made 100 years too late. Especially since some many things that came before this movie were done much better, and the way that film was marketed didn't help matters either. However, Edger Rice Burroughs' other creation, 'Tarzan' is more familiar with many people having so many movies, TV shows, and cartoons under his belt. (Even his own Disney feature.)
