May 23, 2013 3:33 pm This was a delightful mess. Really, the art was gorgeous, but Johns threw in everything but the kitchen sink. The whole Necron thing had be scratching my head. Why did they even need him? And he just went back to his crypt when Hal told him to?
May 22, 2013 5:56 pm Well, it's a summer action movie. I try to keep that in perspective. I think Shatner said it best on SNL - "GET A LIFE, will you people? I mean, for crying out loud, it's just a TV show!"
May 22, 2013 5:48 pm As a "non-Trekkie" you sure are relying heavily on knowledge of the previous films and TV series to justify your point. I realize it's almost impossible to separate characters who are such pop culture icons from the baggage that accompanies them. But you really have to pretend like the previous material never existed to fairly judge this film.
May 22, 2013 4:50 pm So how do you "fix" a character with regard to the passage of time? Do you let them age out and die? Do you employ magical means to de-age them like the JSA? Case in point: The Punisher. The most precise info I could find has Frank Castle serving four tours in Viet Nam, from 1968-1971 (http://marvel.wikia.com/Frank_Castle_%28Earth-616%29). If we assume Castle was at least 18 in 1968, that would make him 63 now! That's old to be doing what he does. He certainly isn't depicted as being 63. So when does he become too old to punish, so to speak?
May 22, 2013 3:09 pm They better not change too much or people will freak like they did on Star Trek Into Darkness...
May 21, 2013 6:22 pm I don't think it's resignation so much as I don't think it's a big deal in the grand scheme of things. Trust me, it isn't. You are free to have a differing opinion though!
May 21, 2013 4:52 pm I'm an "old" Star Trek guy. I'm 47. I saw multiple reruns of TOS as a kid, I had the toys and Mego action figures, THAT was my Star Trek. That said, I loved Star Trek Into Darkness. I didn't have the problems other are expressing with it. I appreciate them turning things on their heads with the death scene change, just like the destruction of Vulcan in the first JJ film was a huge surprise. Otherwise, it's just a remake with pretty young actors and prettier effects. My only initial complaint was that they resolved Kirk's death so quickly. It wasn't a cliff-hanger like Spock's death in Wrath of Khan, or Han Solo's abduction in Empire Strikes Back. But that's OK, because this is 30 years later. Movies are different, just look at the pacing of films vs. ones from that era. Audience expectations are different too, and so are audiences. And at the end of the day, I am OK with that in this case.
May 21, 2013 4:33 pm How common have "powers gone" stories been in the movies vs. comics? In comics, we get these all the time. Not sure the general public is quite as inundated with them though. I could be wrong, but the only one I can think of is Superman II...

May 18, 2013 1:18 am The train wreck continues. I didn't read E2, but losing Robinson is a big deal. How long is this going to continue before somebody does something about it? Can WB do anything? DC is so fucked and they don't even realize it. If this keeps up, there isn't going to be a DC Comics.
