You re right.The rock was also the bad guy ( edit: turned into a bad guy ) in that Doom movie. . . . I think if I remember right.
I saw that one in the cinemas and haven't re-watched or even seen reference to it since.
Its the movie that converted me to a fanboy. It's an awesome revenge flick.Have you ever watched Faster? If you haven't, watch Faster. His emotional range in that movie starts at "pissed off" and goes to "super duper pissed off get the fuck out of his way because he's trying to kill motherfuckers". He's literally out for revenge the entire movie, from start to finish. It is one of my favorite Rock movies.
I say that despite your points about the Superman movies or Batman the Movie, that they're STILL better than most of the DC movies, however you wanna analyze it.People who think the original Superman movies were good are muddled by classic rose tinted glasses. They aren't that good in retrospect, including Superman 2. It's simple stage performance, while great, is all it has. The 89 Batman I can still watch, and even with its cheese is still a very enjoyable watch with a very low proclivity for "this is stupid, and the effects are dumb". I'm a huge Superman fanboi, and I still don't have much fondness for any of the original films. Though I do have a special appreciation for red krypyonite (synthetic green krypyonite) Superman getting drunk and flicking peanuts, then getting tossed into a grinder when fighting Clark Kent.
It makes me think people of a certain age, and their appreciation for films from the 70's and 80's without the concept of modern films, like Jaws, which is a great film, but when you go back and watch it today (I literally did a few days ago), the flighty thematic music (outside the thematic duh-duh track), cheesy grim character portrayals, it's very light and not so serious given serious threats. Like much of Spielberg, the fun was the point.
Much of modern DC films lack any significance where fun is concerned, and how they mold that into a serious narrative. So maybe folks of a certain age, myself and the masses included, are seeing that lack of cohesion.
Not that I disagree, but seeing the color of Margot Kidder's bra color doesn't make it a good movie. Just that it fits with the standing quality of all that has come out of the WB studios.I say that despite your points about the Superman movies or Batman the Movie, that they're STILL better than most of the DC movies, however you wanna analyze it.
YMMV, I suppose.
Animated Universe is done by huge comic book fans that work in the film/animation industry. The regular films are done by huge directors who have maybe read some of the more famous Comics from each of the characters.I feel similar to most in this thread in that the live action DC movies just suck shit through a straw. It’s weird too because they can make some decent animated movies, but the failures in charge can not translate them into live action. The best movie they have done in the last few years was Wonder Woman and that was mostly because Gal Gadot was a good casting choice and hot as fuck. The plot in that movie was garbage and throwing Captain Kirk in just made it dumber. I expect this movie to completely shit the bed which means it will be a pleasant surprise if it doesn’t.
