Re: Ryan Reynolds Not Interested in Returning as Green Lantern Right N

Because he isn't shit.

The bar has been soooooooooo lowered.

JJ does great work.

Green Lantern was a complete clusterfuck made by incompetent morons.

Because of movies like Green Lantern it's turned a fair producer like JJ into a fantastic producer.

Who made Green Lantern?

Martin Campbell?

Fuck.

The only other thing he's done of note is some shitty Bond films and Zorro.

Zorro are equally also the worst movie ever made.

A friend came over a month back, she's a little retarded, thinks there's this bearded prig in the clouds granting wishes, but I say that I have over 12 thousand movies, that I have everything which she could ever want... She says she wants Zorro. I frown and admit that after 6 years of entrenched piracy that I do not have the Zorro movies because they're shit. Sure, I felt like less of a man because I couldn't pleasure her when she was challenging me, but what she wanted me to do, admit that I had, or to actually "own" The Mask of Zorro as part of my collection is despicably perverse and churlishly unnatural.

IHAVESTANDARDS!

The Mask of Zorro is pretty good. The sequel is terrible though, presumably because it was written by Bob Orci & Alex Kurtzman.

Also, Martin Campbell directed two of the best Bond movies in Goldeneye and Casino Royale.

How dare you sir, The Mask of Zorro is fantastic. I'll take it over any of those knockoff Batman movies any day of the week.

And if one reads the full quote, he all but says he'd gladly return if Whedon or Nolan were in charge.

you know, I like those two as well, but I don't think they're the "comic book movie gods" they seem to be portrayed as now. There are plenty of competent writers who could do a good GL.

^ All Bat-flicks are Zorro knockoffs by definition, mon ami.

Heck, even in The Dark Knight Rises, the broken and imprisoned hero, passing-the-torch theme, and burning hero-symbol all had precedents in Mask... which was shorter, funnier, had sympathies that lay with the 99%, and was Matthew Modine-free.

I didn't realize that. Wonder what it was like to direct David Niven.

I also have no appreciation for Nolan's bat-trilogy.

Unlike The Dark Knight Rises, which called Wall Street a bunch of thieves. I'm told that's a common sentiment among the 1%.

I have mixed feelings about Nolan's bat-trilogy. I liked Begins and while I liked Ledger's Joker the last two movies suffer in trying to be too dark and serious. I know Batman is a dark character but the movies could have been a little more fun.

What, through one line from the murdering, psychotic antagonist? Next you'll be claiming that Milk is an anti-gay rights movie, because Anita Bryant.


(It was a pretty good line, though, I'll give Bane that. )

Re: Ryan Reynolds Not Interested in Returning as Green Lantern Right N

My only problem with the Nolan films is that it became less and less about the Bat and Ninja stuff. I expected Batman to win over Bane with skill, tactics and technology, for example, but in the end it was just brute force.
And while I liked the entire trilogy, Rises could have begun with Batman being full in business, kicking a lot of ass. Instead he was in retirement, and then it was no wonder that HE got his ass kicked by Bane. It would have been more interesting to do the Rocky III approach: he's full in business, the enemies are no match for him, so he lets himself go, he is overconfident, and THEN he gets his ass kicked.

I'm sorry Nolan did not personally step into the film and communicate the message in his own words to the audience. You know, like filmmakers usually do. ( And it's more than just Bane's line. ) It is also true that if an idea is not repeated ad nauseam in scene after scene, it can be treated as though it's not really present in the film at all. Unlike "Batman beats up criminals, so 1% rules", something which is apparently self-evident. I mean, it's not like you intend to justify your contention regarding the film's sympathies by referring to the antics of a murdering, psychotic antagonist.
