June 13, 2013 10:55 pm @ed: Yeah that's a great point. For instance in The Dark Knight, in every shot in Bruce's penthouse everything outside the windows was VFX.
June 13, 2013 6:19 pm How was the comic a cash grab? It won like three or four Eisners.
June 13, 2013 2:47 pm Hahahahaha. My wife loves when I work "increasing ubiquity" into our pillow talk.
June 13, 2013 11:44 am @conor: Fair enough, I'll admit when I'm wrong! Maybe it was just this one piece but for whatever reason the tone just caught me off guard and kind of rubbed me the wrong way. Paul, I am a fan of your writing so don't take this one instance as an overall criticism!
June 13, 2013 11:42 am I also don't think it's quite fair to characterize the penetration of 3D printers as "increasing ubiquity."
June 13, 2013 11:39 am While I agree this trailer has a video gamey look to it, home consols are nowhere near comparable to top notch visual effects. I play a lot of video games and they can't create anything even near the quality of the effects in something like Star Trek Into Darkness or what I've seen in the Pacific Rim trailers. I've been playing video games since the Atari and they have come an amazing distance, and I'm sure the PS 4 and XBox One will be the most impressive yet, but they can't even touch what the top tier effects houes can do.
June 13, 2013 11:33 am @Paul: I used it because it seems like a similarly unnecessary and cynical cash grab.
June 13, 2013 11:32 am @Paul Montgomery: That's fine if you think it's a cash grab, I tend to agree, and I share your lack of excitement about this sequel but the tone of the article just caught me off guard. That's all. In a review I expect the tone and opinion of the author to come through, I'm just not used to that from this site when it comes to more factual, announcement style articles.
June 13, 2013 12:22 am Remember when Darren Aronofsky was going to direct this? That would have been cool.
June 13, 2013 12:19 am @kirkjt: Yeah I agree, the snark is completely unnecessary.
