Happy Summer Movie Season. Play the summer game.

Fanboy Wars Thread: Personal Attacks not allowed

Recommended Posts

I know it's basically a forum joke meme at this point, but really, the staff has zero rooting interest in pushing one franchise over another. We can't even agree with ourselves about what the franchise order would be.

 

(At least, I hope that was a joke. :lol: If not, let's nip that in the bud right now).

It's so condescending of you to assume that people don't actually enjoy the DCU movies only because you and critics in general don't. That attitude is around here a lot, it's really weird, it's almost like people shouldn't have different tastes or something.

 

I love the MCU, God only knows how much fun their movies give me. Hell, I even really like Thor TDW! And still, I really enjoyed all the DCU offerings so far as well. Is it so hard to grasp such possibility?

 

 

 

my favorite franchise is X-Men though :ph34r:

 

 

Oh I understand that part.   But at this point a DC fan would have to just get used to enjoying something that has the status of Transformers and Twilight movies.   If that's the kind of movies you like, then by all means keep buying the tickets...and you'll get more.

 

I suppose the best way to tell if WB is happy with the box office will be if they start changing what they are doing.    That little bit of the Flash in the JL trailer has me thinking they think they could do better.  (and thank Christ they aren't going to turn the Flash into Batman like they did with Superman)

The problem with this is, we don't know how much the changes were due to the natural progression of the story telling or in reaction to critics and fans. The Flash was meant to bring in youth and humor to their universe from the start as seen by both interviews with Deborah Snyder and Chris Terrio before the release of BvS. From what both have revealed, Justice League was meant to be far lighter in tone and was planned to be that way before 2016.

 

If WB made adjustments to Suicide Squad to make their detractors happy, then, as I feared, trying to cater to all just loses some of the original support. At least in my case, I didn't care for what they did, and I was really anticipating a better movie. If SS is exactly how they imagined it, then unfortunately I just didn't like it as much as I wanted to. 

 

Going forward, I hope the writers, directors, the producers, and most of all the studio are able to filter out all the noise surrounding these movies. Certainly, they could benefit from course correction by listening to legitimate concerned and loyal fans. Unfortunately, the troll is strong with the internet, and good criticism can be lost within the complaints of people who don't know anything outside of hate. If the story about Liman is true, then I'm happy with the choice, as it points to the use of a less-compromising director. If the studio is going that route, maybe the director-lead vision is still in play. While I believe following the Marvel approach would yield greater success, I'd much rather they take artist-centric approach, even if that means some duds. Just my opinion...

What they said, except the HP part. That's kind pretty much off my radar.

The only thing that interest me in this debate is the obession of the BOT's Mod Team with DCEU movies, they are almost all closeted DC stans.

 

No need to hide anymore, come out in the open.

 

We won't judge you.

 

:)

 

 

Agree. 

They are biased like Fox news.

It's a 1000 fatigue and crumbling comments on CA3. Fucked the fish 5000 times

But nothing but threat bans on BvS and SS when a negative word is mentioned. 

Fuck DC, it's crumbling.

David Ayer would like to thank you, the fans, for enabling SUICIDE SQUAD to pass 600M, I'm assuming that's Worldwide??

Excellent article about the current studio system.  It could fit in a multitude of places but I put it here because of what it says about current franchise and studio film making.

The studio as auteur: Movie hits and misses this year define the system

https://www.washingtonpost.com/lifestyle/style/the-studio-as-auteur-movie-hits-and-misses-this-year-define-the-system/2016/08/25/a9520076-6879-11e6-8225-fbb8a6fc65bc_story.html

 

Quote

Almost 30 years ago, the film historian Thomas Schatz wrote his influential book, “The Genius of the System,” in which he argued that Hollywood’s Golden Age-era studios weren’t the impersonal, creativity-killing dream factories of legend and lore. Instead, Schatz posited that each studio’s stable of stars, directors and technicians — guided by shrewd moguls — helped create films with distinct visual styles and storytelling motifs.

Quote

 

So far, the studio that seems to be taking its auteurist potential most sincerely to heart is Disney, which has scored home runs with its most lucrative IP cash cows: “Star Wars” and the Marvel Avengers universe. (Three of the top five movies this summer are Disney’s — “Finding Dory,” “Captain America: Civil War” and “The Jungle Book.”)

 

Working with such insightful filmmakers as J.J. Abrams, Joss Whedon, and Anthony and Joe Russo — as well as its reliably excellent subsidiary, Pixar — the studio seems to comprehend more often than not the importance of solid scripts, adroit, humanistic direction and perhaps most important of all, bold, perceptive casting. Daisy Ridley, John Boyega, Oscar Isaac, Mark Ruffalo and Chris Evans prove that these movies didn’t need stars as much as they needed fine actors who were ready to be stars. That calculation isn’t a matter of financial projections or four-quadrant focus groups, but gut instinct and artistic taste (both of which, it bears noting, Abrams also brought to his Paramount reboot of “Star Trek”).
