Movies from comedy to drama to your favorite Hollyweird Star.

RE: WW = POS for now on...

The problem for most of these DC movies is they are no FUN. comic book movies take themselves far too seriously which is why they are mostly rubbish.

I liked Superman and Superman II in the 1980s.

Also liked Deadpool movies because he makes fun of comic books. raunchy so won't be to all tastes with language and graphic violence but they were pretty hilarious and remain in the spirit of the character.

All the new DC stuff is overly long and overly serious. I'll give Batman and the Joker a pass because they are written as noir/detective kind of stuff and Batman doesn't actually have any powers.

Marvel too is usually a bore-fest. They made Thor Ragnorak silly and to me, it worked because IT'S A COMIC BOOK - It's supposed to be silly escapism.

Superman II was a hoot. "Kneel before Zod." Hamming it up. Gene Hackman hamming it up. What does he want from Zod - just a small island "Australia" - it was funny. Where the hell is that in most Marvel DC movies?

Plus Superman had a good soundtrack - some heart. Parents chuckled kids had fun watching it. Now it's a long slog of dullness. Can't offend these 68 groups so re-write it 12 times - re-shoot it 3 times as was the case here with WW84 - apparently the suits changed the ending Jenkins wanted - though the movie up until then wasn't great. She may be able to direct but she can't write a screenplay. A shame because the first one did have some light touches and some humor and some fun. It wasn't spectacular but it was a solid effort for a comic book movie.

No wonder they released it on TV - they would not be able to justify a box office bomb which it would likely be. This way they don't have to make excuses - they have Covid to blame it on.
