Saw Maniac remake. Not sure if this is unpopular or not but i thought it was very well done. Certainly was different enough from the original to have an identity of its own.

Said this before but DC way outclass Marvel movies and tv shows in terms of quality.

The Dark Knight trilogy was hugely successful and are often cited as amongst the greatest comic book based films ever made.

Man Of Steel was another huge success and terrific reboot of the Superman saga.

Arrow is one of the best shows on tv and really shows up how rubbish Marvels Agents Of SHITE is.

The DC universe animated movies are also of a much higher quality than Marvels.


It could be argued that when DC get it right they do it better than Marvel, but they tend to get it wrong a lot too and they don't really seem to have a plan beyond a half-hearted apeing of Marvels blueprint. Man Of Steel might have been successful, but it took less money than each of the Iron Man films, and each of Raimi's Spiderman movies. Given that Superman is (arguably) second only to Batman in terms of DC's crown jewels, MoS's box office perhaps isn't really as encouraging as it first appears. And while I agree Arrow is good fun, Wonder Woman was an unmitigated disaster. Constantine made barely a ripple. Green Lantern and Catwoman were turds on a level that even Marvel at their worst (IM2) have yet to plumb. That's some of their most high-profile characters that have failed on the small and big screens for one reason or another, which given after them it's a real drop-off (only really Flash and Aquaman before you get to truly niche characters) it makes Marvel's success at turning previously "second-tier" characters such as Iron Man and Thor into household names all the more remarkable.



Anal retentiveness apologies in advance and only because I have a soft spot for it ... Constantine was pretty much a commercial success, albeit not on the level of the big boys, but considering it was the least known and least accessible of the entire canon makes it quite an achievement.

Sorry

Haven't seen the original, DK, but I couldn't get through the remake. The idea initially intrigued me, but after twenty-five minutes of exposition-less/characterless graphic stabby, slashy murder I got bored and couldn't see where it was possibly going to go from there.

They are doing everything but recreating Marvels thing. Like a lot of people have said already; WB doesn't have the need for a DC movie every year, or two times a year. DC doesn't have its own studio, like Marvel. Disney does not put its finger in Marvels work much, because they trust the plan. WB is the studio that creates the DC movies, WB has a lot of franchises and projects that they need to work on so it's not like they can churn out two super hero movies as well.

Your box office speak barely makes sense. Superman is ahead of Iron Man 1 and 2, on the worldwide box office. Domestically it falls behind, but trust me, starting with big overseas numbers is a better sign that starting big domestically. Overseas box office is interested in sequels, whether the first one sucked or not.

I'm not trying to hate no Marvel here, as I love their movies, but I'm just trying to show that DC, as a matter of fact, is not screwing it up. Catwoman easily stands against Daredevil, for example.

And finally:

If that's the Julieanne Moore/Linus Roache Twilight Zone-y one then yep, a decent enough low-key thriller with a few good creepy moments and I actually cared about what was happening to the protagonists.

What are the Superman/Batman and Justice League films if not an attempt to jump on the money-spinning bandwagon? Warners won't have failed to notice the ten-figure takings of Avengers. They may not have the luxury of being able to focus almost exclusively on DC material, but it seems apparent to me that WB are trying to come up with a way of recreating the success Marvel are having.

It's more about what it represents I suppose. I would have thought Superman being outperformed in America by Iron Man should be considered somewhat surprising.

That seems to me to be a statement that belongs firmly in this thread As does mine when I say I don't really mind Daredevil all that much.

The Batman trilogy was excellent and MoS was decent too. I merely made the point that they sometimes get it wrong (which is hardly unusual - even Pixar have fumbled the ball a few times) and without an overarching story to keep people invested means a few of their more prestige characters have withered on the vine. They can always revisit them of course - it worked for Batman after all, and Marvel keep ploughing on with the Hulk regardless of results.

I was talking about the shared universe thing. Marvel is bringing out two movies per year, and trying to move that up to three. DC/WB is going, at least at the moment, for one big blockbuster in a few years. For example, Fox is bringing out one comic book movie per year, and they have yet to cross the 500m WW mark. DC/WB doesn't take that for an answer, and prevents themselves from franchise-fatigue. Something the studio is quite strong in anyway. Marvel is going to suffer from that fatigue in a year, if Disney will not hold them back. 3 movies per year is too much.

Good point. I think this has also to do with the climate and time-period in which those movies were released. Although, I generally think it's a marketing and quality issue. Man of Steel opened higher than IM1, but that movie was received much better (quality issue). IM2, came off a much-liked first movie, so it opened higher, but ended relatively as high as MoS (marketing issue).

While the hatred towards DC isn't a (big) thing here, it is quite big on other boards. DC apparently doesn't know what they are doing, is something that gets thrown out a lot. I hate that statement, haha. Revisiting isn't always a solution though, look at spiderman. While it's financially still 'succesfull', it's the worlds biggest example of franchise-fatigue, and how that doesn't seem to be a thing in overseas markets.

The latest X-Men: Days of Future Past trailer makes it seem like a heist film. All it needs is some Oceans 11 editing and a David Holmes soundtrack and it's there! It really does a dis-service and changes the tone of the film. It's a complete contrast to the dark, moody original trailer which was one of the best in recent memory. I'll still watch the film though!

Her is Spike Jonze's weakest film to date. The characters are really annoying, and the atmosphere of the film just left me cold, also it was a bit overlong.

I come close to agreeing with you. I don't understand the praise, it's just dull, and one of Polanski's weakest.

And I partly agree with this too. Great acting and look, and strong premise, but it didn't do enough with it, the second half virtually petered out, and as you say it was cold, so cold that I didn't care that much.

Same here: it was one of the more out-and-out enjoyable blockbusters in a long time and it's a shame we won't get a sequel. I was looking forward to seeing them hunted by John Hamm too.

Another film I'd like to see get a sequel: Get Smart (2008). I liked the cast, the film was funny, as was the action, and it was faithful enough to the TV show while being its own thing. Alan Arkin stole the show, as is often the case and, because of this film, I had no doubts about Anne Hathaway playing Selina Kyle in The Dark Knight Rises.

I'd love it if it actually turns out to be a heist film: all the time travel stuff is just to bookend an elaborate prison break. Imagine the outcry!

The A Team was a rare thing, a film better than its trailer. The trailer made it look like it would be absolutely awful but the film was just massively entertaining.

The award for that must go to End Of Watch. Trailer made it look macho, shoot-em-up awful, but it turned out to be a brilliantly observed character drama.

The problem with Charlie's Angels was that the film was being way too smug about the whole "we're being ironic" thing, the gag about showing random shots of the female's arses was over done. Also MCG strikes me as a creepy director so I don't buy that it was 'just fun'.

Didn't see the A Team film, but if I remember it was a bit of a flop so not sure there will be a sequel.

I get the impression it wasn't an enjoyable experience for Joe Carnahan - he tweeted something to that effect a few months ago. Not that it would require his return of course, but it seems there are probably multiple reasons why a sequel will never happen.

Shame really as i think a lot of its success is due to him. Although it would be easy enough to find a game director for a sequel, but yeah, it's not happening.

Andrew Garfield is a terrible Spiderman/Peter Parker.

The A-Team (2010) is great fun. Great action, perfect casting and well made.



Plus, how often do you get to see someone fly a tank!



Exactly this! It nails the ridiculous aspect of the show perfectly


Exactly the same reason I loved the Charlie's Angels films. They weren't supposed to be taken seriously even in the slightest.
I would welcome sequels to either of them.



Really enjoyed The A Team. Charlie's Angels not so much, first one was reasonable, second one was horrid!!!
