August 28, 2013 1:50 pm My predisposition not to watch bad movies is clearly evident as I go through this list. If I group the list in groups of 25, the number of movies I have seen goes down dramatically as I go down the list. Rank / # I have seen / Cumulative # I have seen 01 - 25 / 25 / 25 26 - 50 / 17 / 42 51 - 75 / 19 / 61 76 - 100 / 7 / 68 101 - 118 / 7 / 75
August 28, 2013 1:22 pm @Conor: Have you watched it recently? I admit that I have not watched it since seeing it in the theater. I think once you get over what the film is and isn't, I think it could be very enjoyable. But, "fantastic"? Are you saying 4 stars (or better) on the Netflix scale? Based on my recollection, I would give it 3.5.
August 27, 2013 5:35 pm According to IMDb, the budget for Dick Tracy was ~$46M. I believe that doesn't include the money spent on marketing, which was substantial. So, it wasn't a huge financial success, but it wasn't a total stinker either. In the end, I think the disappointment surrounding Dick Tracy had to do with what should have been achieved given the level of star power (Beatty, Madonna, Pacino), the strength of the IP, and the size of the marketing budget.
August 9, 2013 12:48 pm I suspect Porter was a better fit for what DC wants the book to look like, which I presume is something approaching the 90's and being "edgy".
July 29, 2013 2:01 pm @Paul, how is Heimdall to GL not an upgrade?
July 22, 2013 11:57 am Agreed. Tony's initial arc was basically finished as of IM3. This opens new possibilities.
July 16, 2013 1:06 pm I am going to pile on here too and say that the first arc of Justice League was kind of a non-story. I'll be interested to see how they adapt it to resolve that issue. It also seems like DC Animated is continuing the trend of having movie subtitles that give no indication of what the story is about unless you already know the source material. (See: Apocalypse, Doom, Unbound)
July 3, 2013 4:41 pm This is a coup. Pretty exciting.
June 26, 2013 11:20 am My guess is Pizza Dog Hawkguy. Josh is an ol' softie.
