    November 15, 2010 12:39 pm Will be pretty interesting should Aronofsky win the Best Director Oscar this year for "Black Swan", as is very possible, for his next project to be "The Wolverine". I don't think they could have ever dreamed to get a better director than Aronofsky. I think the film will obviously be tons better than you would expect a Wolverine film to be, but as a fan of Aronofsky's, I still kind of wish he had passed and used his possible new Hollywood capital to make a passion project of his.  Hope it makes tons of cash and rules and he then can make whatever he wishes.
    October 5, 2010 8:49 am Ellis would be writing the book if he wished. He likes Kelly Sue and him writing the backup is a chance for him to make a little cash without having to worry about sales and also will get more readers (like me) to give Kelly Sue's book a shot.
    October 5, 2010 8:45 am I find Snyder to be a completely uninspired choice and one that will sadly keep me from watching this film. There are many interesting directors out there but Snyder is not one of them. I hope Nolan's involvement is minimal and he lets Snyder blow this one on his own.
    August 15, 2010 9:25 am I Loved the basketball scene. It was so hilariously bad. Makes me think of the shitty Paul Simon song "Me and Julio Down by the Schoolyard".
    July 1, 2010 9:44 am This splash page to me is the crown jewel of that issue! It is really something to behold.

    Conor, you are funny like a clown. You amuse me. You make me laugh and are here to Fucking amuse me.

     

    Thanks for doing so!

    June 23, 2010 8:11 am 3D isn't bad. What is bad is when a film is conceived as a normal film and the 3D is retrofitted after the fact. 3D done right can be wonderful, especially with animation, but tons of fils are apparently using badly just trying to grab the extra cash (Clash of the Titans for example). If you able to pick out which one's were conceived as 3D films and see those in 3D and the ones that were added later and see them in 2D, then I'm not sure that any of it matters.

    I do not know who was attached to what became "The Dark Knight", but it must have been before "Batman Begins". It seemed like they let Nolan have control over most of what became "The Dark Knight".

    I AGREE films can turn out fine or even great with production problems, but the chances are often more remote. I believe if you want to have Michel Gondry direct your film, you let him have the control. Let a creative mind do something creative. Do not as a not creative producer screw with his vision. (I do not know all that went on here as I haven't followed "The Green Hornet" closely)

     Chrislatray, I also will not be looking for the same thing from this as "Winter's Bone", but that doesn't mean I will not hold it up to the same quality standards. I do not want to have to think of Comic Book movies as lesser films than "Real" Dramas. I think having a Michel Gondry or Christopher Nolan is a start to making a Comic Film that can be favorably compared to the Winter's Bone's of the world, but hope they let him be creative.

     Josh, I surely did not claim Conor said "THIS MOVIE IS GOING TO BE GREAT". I stated that he presented it by saying it looks good, which was pretty close to accurate. In reality he just said it looked better than he thought it would. I was really just making an observation about people's tendencies to agree with those who have websites and post things. I think you guys underestimate the impact you have on people's opinions. Maybe that is a good thing, as it shows humility.

    To judge the trailer, none of that in which I said is relevant, agreed. I point those things out to those who are now convinced to see the film. Those are bad signs that a trailer probably shouldn't completely brush under the rug. Those signs are the same type of signs that Jonah Hex had and many other shitty films in the past. When the parent company is messing with the film as much as they have, it is unlikely you are going to get a great film. When a release date is pushed back twice in order to re-edit, that is a sign that the studio does not like the film that was delivered, which puts it in "Jonah Hex" territory.

     As for people being postive because the original post is positive, it does happen, obviously not always, and maybe only does because people do not want to rain on everyone parade or feels like they are missing something.

    I did not mean to offend anyone, but I clearly am missing something you guys are catching when watching this trailer, or all the bad films of late have lowered everyone's standards. I would love for Micehl Gondry to make another wonderful film and hope, as the rest of you do, that this is it.

    It is funny that I have seen this trailer posted a few places now and when the author presents the trailer by saying that it looks good, all the comments follow suit, is it did here. When the author says it looks terrible, the comments then also follow suit. Same thing happens here for the Pick of the Week (It Seems).

     Either way, you guys need to higher your standards for films. This looks pretty bad, had it's release date pushed back numerous times, and changed director twice. These are signs of a problem. I hope it is great and the person making the trailer just wanted some very standard looking crap, but I have major doubts.
