‘It’s funny…’ I didn’t recognize that. That’s the problem when english is not your first language. But I think you’re right. Thank you very much.

Hey, no worries, I completely understand. Most of my days are spent communicating in Polish, so the second language struggle is a reality for me as well.

This is what I got from the clip you posted:

“This season is the water season so it’s kind of nice to we had a lot of discussion in the writing process about how we can make this little trilogy in the end focus around water…(laugh)…it’s funny that that’s like, uh, taken as like uh ridiculous, you know ridiculous pitch by Ang and that’s exactly what happens…(laugh)…in the next episode. But it’s cool ‘cause there’s you know stuff in here that we set up early on in like episode 7 when he first goes to the spirit world that that kinda pays off here. I think that painting in the palace was by Brian Evans…really beautiful painting. And this is the spirit oasis.”

I hope this helps…

Watchmen: Midnight

I just finished watching this edit. One of the best, most professionally presented edits that I have ever had the pleasure to watch, and awesome job. I love the original graphic novel and used to read it once a year; what an improvement over the theatrical release, thanks for the hard work. If it is possible, I would like to ask why the deletion of the prison break scene? Perhaps it was cut to save time?

Comic book fans take continuity to a whole other level, so when an actor is cast in an important role and they differ in some way or do not fit the bill, comic fans generally freak out. Batfleck is the most recent example which comes to my mind…but Keaton faced the same outcry when he dawned the cowl.

Batman: Mask of the Phantasm

All this Batman talk made me want to take a look back at a gem from the past.

It was perfect in that it took the things that worked in the show and improved upon them.
It could’ve just been a 2 part episode in the show, but it stood well enough on it’s own. The improved animation added to that. I recommend it to anyone who never gave the animated series a shot.

It actually serves as a great starting point. Most of the events of the film seem to take place during the earlier parts of the first season. Someone actually made a timeline of what order to watch it in, but to be honest, you’re fine just watching this on it’s own. It’s a good greatest hits for what the show has to offer. Watching the show in the order each episode was released is wisest, as it allows you to understand the motivations of the heroes as well as the villains.

I look forward to the upcoming Blu Ray release of this.

5/5

Best Batman film ever, IMHO. It also incorporates some elements of Batman:Year Two, which is one of my favorite Batman stories.

Aaannddd keeping with the Dark Knight, watched Lego Batman tonight with the kiddos. It was a nice take on Batman, including his more ridiculous characteristics. Watching it in English for the first time was a plus, but I felt that if I was a Lego fan in general I may have liked it more… 7.5/10

One big thing I never heard anyone talking about is how (unless I’m mistaken) the main reason Man of Steel got made when it did was because WB had to promptly get a Superman film into production as a condition of their settlement with Siegel and Shuster’s estates, or else lose all rights to the character.

Snyder et al weren’t even planning on it being the first installment of a shared DC film pantheon at the time if I remember correctly. Yet, by the time the movie came out, many people assumed that’s exactly what they were doing. The Avengers had just been released the year prior, so cashing in on the superhero cinematic universe craze only made sense. But everyone seemed to have forgotten about the Siegel/Shuster lawsuit, which I’m still assuming is the main reason MoS got made when it did.

They even stayed vague on whether or not this was the same universe as Nolan’s Batman movies. Once BvS was announced, there was a rumor circulating that WB was offering Christian Bale an insane amount of money to return as Bruce Wayne. I’m not sure how valid that rumor ever was, but it’s interesting to consider in retrospect.

Wonder Woman really seems to be the “course correction” of the DCEU many fans were hoping for. I’m even hearing people say things like “oh, if only this one had been the first of these DC universe films.”

But that’s just it. They didn’t really decide to make this the DC equivalent of the MCU until BvS. Suicide Squad wasn’t even connected to the larger milieu in its earlier drafts. I was hearing the same thing about Black Adam, but I can only assume they’ve changes their plans.

It is interesting how we’re finally getting what many consider the “proper” DC movie (complete with a new opening titles logo!) just as The Avengers’ saga comes to a close. I can’t help but wonder how WB would’ve handled their DC properties had the Superman lawsuit not been a concern.

That is an excellent point you make, and could very well be the case. Maintaining rights to comic properties has a lot to do with what books get published, Captain Marvel volume 17 for example, and which characters appear where, so yeah I think you have hit the proverbial nail.

I wanted to say thank you for your projects and work on the Fundamental Collection. I have been enjoying them quite a bit. Just a heads up on the English subtitles, the first 3 times Laurie’s name appears, it is spelled “Laufie”, after that, her name is spelled correctly. Later in the film when Laurie goes across the street looking for her friends, she calls out “Linda” which in the subtitle is spelled “Lvnua”. Thanks and keep up the good work!

I have been reading Batman comics for a lot of years and I think it is safe to say that no one film has ever really captured the look and feel of Batman properly. There have been allusions and homages and certainly past directors have sought to incorporate iconic images into their films, a young Bruce Wayne kneeling by his parents’ bodies in Begins is taken directly from Batman Year One for example, and of course most recently with Batfleck and his Dark Knight Returns armor in BvS.

The work that Tim Burton did was pretty amazing, classic story telling and it worked in spite of its inaccuracies (Batman is Mr. Mom?!?; the Joker killed the Wayne’s!!!..uuhhh no) because Burton is a master story teller. This is the same reason Schumachers’ films sucked so badly, he is not anywhere near the craftsman Burton is and when he attempted to ape the earlier films, he failed miserably…Tommy Lee Jones as Two-Face anyone…

And this is why WB felt like they had to do something 180deg removed from their previous attempts and hire someone who would ground the myth in reality, or as mush reality as possible when trying to make a film about a guy who dresses in his pajamas and fights criminals. So gone were the big sound stages and neon colors, replaced with real life locations and the muted tones of a vigilante who might actually be able to exist somewhere in the world. In my opinion, it is this same realism that caused so many problems for Rises…the myriad of things that failed to live up to that realistic standard could not be overlooked and there the Emperor sat in his new clothes.

People are often more than the sum total of the things they have accomplished in their lives.

That doesn’t mean anything if they can’t manifest that into the world in some tangible way.

Does that mean that people who are unable to ‘manifest’ that ‘something’ are not qualified to live? Should the handicapped be exterminated? The elderly? This way of thinking can be dangerous and living in Eastern Europe, I am reminded of a time when a lot of people thought that way. You are certainly entitled to your opinions but I would submit that human life has value even if said human is unable to leave their mark on the world in any significant way.

Being repulsed by someone and/or wanting that person to never draw breath, to laugh or smile, to exist is taking it to a whole other level. Assessing someone’s worth by their appearance is never a good thing.

It’s not her appearance I’m chastising; it’s her behavior that disgusts me. If she’s doing this type of shit in public what type of stuff if she doing in private? Does she wipe adequately? I very much doubt it.

I understand and I can’t say that I on some level I find her behavior disgusting as well, but using her love of Heinz as a reason to negate her life is a bit extreme. And as to whether or not she has the ability to clean her caboose properly, well let’s just hope and pray that none of us are ever in a position to find out first hand.

This latest, and in my opinion best, effort thus far from DC (aside from the Nolan trilogy), gives me real hope that Aquaman will also kick all forms of ass upon its release.
