    I said less over the top. Not fully grounded. Action is fine. But BW looks like a full on superhero cgi action fest.

    With all that CG, they couldn’t get the de-aging right? She looks more like the Natasha of Endgame than the Natasha of IM2.

    WW went down the tubes after Season 1, it should've been a 1 Season show and just ended with the Robot Rebellion beginning. But as usual the Nolans' tendency to write with their head up their asses led to S2 and the nonsense IT ended with.

    But then again, even the plot they came up for S1 was pretty dull once you think about it chronologically. That was the whole point of the non-linear plots...to keep folks from realizing how plodding and predictable the whole thing was.

    Even though it was pretty easy to figure out the whole flashback was the origin for William, although his past characterization was less "Good guy goes bad" and more "Clearly unbalanced guy just loses his mask of sanity" due to a poorly done character.

    And as usual, they're incapable of writing nuanced characters. Just the usual caricatures and 1-Note fanatics.

    You're basing that on one fight scene.

    What else are we to base it on?

    How about waiting till the movie comes out and base it on the actual movie?

    Sometimes I wish the hardest of critics here would be handed a huge pile of money and be tasked with making a TV show. The failure would be spectacular.

    That ship sailed, sank and rotted long ago.

    Well, I've been mostly complaining about the trailer for now. Though the fact that that flying through the air scene is even in the movie already suggests that the movie will have the MCU trademarked CGI battle at the end. Maybe the first 3 quarters of the movie will be more interesting, who knows.

    ...and Joker still has its acclaim, its nominations and success, no matter how much someone wishes that was not the case.

    None of which would've happened if not for the MCU doing all the legwork for it first. Joker getting it's Nom was merely the result of all the hard work Black Panther did before it.

    Serious question - are you delusional or does Disney pay you? How much would it take for someone to agree to lose their dignity like this?

    Come on now - the MCU must have been nominated for something.

    Perhaps the coveted Best Hairstying award?

    Nah, it just got the Best Pic Nom before DC could. And they did it without selling out.

    And the Playstation is way better than X-Box! And don't even get me started on that lame Star Trek, Star Wars kicks it's ass!

    It's rather astonishing that comic book movies generate such a polarized atmosphere where discussion is swamped by all the "DC sux" and "MCU is crap" and "X-Men movies are ashamed of comics" and so on.

    They're COMIC BOOK MOVIES. Sure, some aspire to something a little deeper than a Silver Age story from the 50s (some are even successful, like Joker). But none will rank in the ten best films of all time.

    No.

    I’d rather Oscars go to the real art films, whether or not they are accessible or in English. But I’d give them to the comic book blockbusters long before I gave them to to bloated historical biopics and sanctimonious issue dramas that usually get them.

    I thought a few years ago everyone said the award shows were a joke and critics don't matter. I guess that changes when a favorite is up for an award.
