"What bothers me more is the critical attitude that reads a film like Dark Knight Rises as nuanced or complex due to its moral ambiguity… rather than, you know, a film that contradicts itself on literally every conceivable thematic level, to the point where the film is a giant grimdark mess of growling and posturing, sound and fury saying nothing. The flip side of that, of course, is that a film like Pacific Rim is treated as somehow naive or insignificant because it dares, gasp!, to have not just a unified message, but a quite positive, affirmative message, spoken not in the language of Lifetime movies or this year’s crop of Oscar-bait, but in the language of Metal, the language of force and bombast and people in giant fucking robots punching Godzilla in the face."
gets me every damn time
regardless of your opinion on Lady Gaga and her music. This is pretty amazing shes achieving her dream.
The Terrible Truth About “Eating Right” and Childhood Obesity
That’s an old comment. Almost two years old, but I stumbled across it today when the old “controversial” Georgia childhood obesity PSAs cropped up again while I was surfing Buzzfeed, and I would be lying if I didn’t say the comments section floored me. It was this comment in particular that I nearly replied to but then stopped. Why? Because it’s two years old, and I truly feel that people with this viewpoint should see the bigger picture when it comes to childhood obesity:
Real talk. It is hard to eat right.
Why DC comic fans always have an issue with casting for movies!
I think as DC comics fans our expectations of our beloved characters in the movies is that they are Gods and Goddesses, they are mythological, we put so much on them and that is what we expect of them. Marvel fans can accept their casting and movie versions because they are human. Superman, Wonder Woman, The Flash and even in some cases Batman are mythological, they are analogues of heroic types and represent that idea so much, that of course we don’t want them to be screwed up like how ancient people saw their own gods being placed in art.
So WB was always going to have a tough task with their DC movies anyway. They were casting gods not humans.
Whoa now. I’m a huge DC fan, but this isn’t a very accurate argument. I get the point you’re making, but it’s just not falling into place.
For one, any fans in a fandom can become very skeptical of a live action casting of their favorite heroes and villains. It is because in the art and comic books we see them one way and then when an actor is cast as them we think “No, they usually play a different kind of character. They’ll get it all wrong!” or “I’ve never heard of this person before. Oh no, they must not be any good!” etc. etc.
Second, all comic book characters are technically mythological because they’re…not real, yet great stories exist encompassing their lives. But since gods were mentioned, I think you mean legitimate mythology relative to the mythology of our world. I’ll give you Wonder Woman on that one. Amazonians are a mythological race. But Superman was an alien, Batman and The Flash were human (If you focus on the most popular Barry Allen and Wally West). Whereas your claim that Marvel characters are human isn’t accurate at all. And this is coming from someone who actively avoids Marvelverse.
I mean, their most popular thing they’ve got going on right now is Thor—which comes directly from Norse Mythology, which was so prevalent back in the day that our own English language used the names of the gods for our days of the week. (In old English, Wednesday was Odin’s day, and Thursday was Thor’s day, but I don’t remember the original words used).
Yes, Marvel has a lot of human superheroes, but so does DC, and that shouldn’t be dismissed. There are a lot of correlations between Batman and Iron Man, for example.
And as for the ancient people and their artist depictions of gods: Well, I’m not anthropologist, but I’m pretty sure there a lot of different versions of statuettes, paintings, and the like of Gaia, Zeus, etc. etc.
