Can we stop with this stupid. DC vs Marvel. Its getting tired and cliche. Why can't we talk about that adding Tony Stark in, is completely half-assed. Marvel clearly only has half a plan, not an entire plan as people claim. Reminder: BATMAN is the POPULAR superhero globally (everything with his name on its sells.) Audiences aren't tired of him, alright.
I think comedies have gotten worse, but dramas have gotten better.
My bad i mean industry, not medium.
Why the movie industry is getting worse.
Crappy movies make more money that good movies.
Smart movies or even movies that try to be more that only fun type movies are getting hate for the fact they try to be something more.
Executives have huge control and power over movies.
CGI is making everybody lazy, the things made with CGI today are just ugh, it hurts the acting too, since you can notice actors dont know what is going on.
Actors are there to be anything but actors and the ones that are, get hate for the fact they are too serious or douchebags.
No Real Suspension of Disbelief, today movies dont have internal logic, which it makes everything look and feel fake.
Being realistic in the wrong way, lens flares, shakyness, "realistic science fiction",confusing edition, etc..
Love it or hate it mentality, there is no middle ground with movies.
Action movies start dying for several reasons, but mostly by the lack of people that believe in the genre and support to fix this.
Only big budget movies, studios fear low and middle budget movies.
Movies are either indy artsy bull or mindless Blockbusters.
Audience only complaints but does nothing to change.
Everybody is playing safe, no one wants to take a risk.
Several genres die or decide to straight to DVD.
Straight to DVD people lives in a movie ghetto, dont matter how good they are, this people is marked even by audience.
Movies dont stand for something anymore or stand for the status quo and the ones that stand for something try to convert you.
Emphasis on pandering to every single demograph to make money back = Simplifying movies.
I know the past wasnt so great, most of movies have always and will always be bad movies, but the industry by itself got worst with time.
What it made TV better but the rest worst?, TV stop caring for marketing over substance at the end TV is kicking everybody in the ass, because they notice people will always like good things.
TV was the only one that cared for the audience rising standards and demands.
Agreed. TV has gotten matured and creative while movies (apart from a few) have lost all their creative edge (Marvel studios, is one of its killers but every studio has lost what once had made it great.) TV feels alive and movies are dead and flat.
Let's be reminded that Batgirl didn't come out of tragedy like Batman. Rather she wanted just to help people which was established way back in her debut on Batman 66 (TV show not the comic.) This why this direction is good for her, she can work with the Batman family but like Batwoman she work fine solo. She has always been designed to appeal to young women (as is the Batgirl monkier.) This is why this title and Gotham Academy work. Geez remember comics are for everybody and need to change sometimes.
I wish they would allow directors to allow leave on their mark on the characters (all the directors they have hired, do not have style at all.) They seem to care about continuity than the look of the film. Let people play with the toys and you'll get an interesting or a new idea. Yes all those films fit a genre but at the end of the day they are still a "Marvel film," which could backfire. But then again I guess that comes from using a TV model and turning movies into products rather than movies (Star Wars anyone.)
