comics that should be movies

Fans complaining about Fantastic Beasts being five movies being a ‘cash cow’ should shut up. If Star Wars can have 6 movies (plus The Force Awaken Saga PLUS the Rogue One prequel-prequels) Lord of The Rings has 3 Movies PLUS 3 Hobbit movies. Superman/Batman,etc have at least 15 different tv series/movies/comics, Then JKR should get to make as many spin offs as she wants.

People: we’ve been trying for years to show people that comics can tackle serious issues and that they’re not just colorful cartoons for kids

Same people: having said that BvS was pretentious for thinking it could ask serious questions of its world that closely parallels our own and it should have been a kids’ movie for the entire family to watch once and forget about

I saw Logan today….and a woman behind me whispered “no..”  when the ending title card came in, and I had that a smol moment when you forget “same” is not an acceptable response outside tumblr.

PS: This is the first Marvel movie i’ve liked in a while, also, the first one to make me cry, ever (from marvel) this was a good ass movie.

  • Tumblr: *points to Ezra Miller as Barry Allen* This is my son.
  • Batfleck: *Furiously filling out adoption forms* NOT IF I GET TO HIM FIRST

So far I already saw more than ten people that didn’t knew superman was coming back for jl, tell me again why we don’t need him in the trailer.

Poll time!  I’m thinking about making a fun zine series for myself about monsters in pop culture. Basically fun little illustrations & comics reviewing and commenting on different movies/characters.  Which should be the first subject, Dragons in Movies, or Godzilla (and co.)? 

  • Marvel: if they're white or racially ambiguous in the comics they should be white in the movies
  • DC: do NOT sign me the FUCK up ๐Ÿ‘Ž๐Ÿ‘€๐Ÿ‘Ž๐Ÿ‘€๐Ÿ‘Ž๐Ÿ‘€๐Ÿ‘Ž๐Ÿ‘€๐Ÿ‘Ž๐Ÿ‘€ bad shit baฬทฬถ ิ sHit ๐Ÿ‘Ž thats โŒ some bad ๐Ÿ‘Ž๐Ÿ‘Žshit right ๐Ÿ‘Ž๐Ÿ‘Ž th ๐Ÿ‘Ž ere ๐Ÿ‘Ž๐Ÿ‘Ž๐Ÿ‘Ž right โŒ there โŒ โŒ if i do ฦฝaาฏ so my sel๏ฝ†๐Ÿšซ i say so ๐Ÿšซ thats not what im talking about right there right there (chorus: สณแถฆแตสฐแต— แต—สฐแต‰สณแต‰) mMMMMแŽทะœ ๐Ÿšซ ๐Ÿ‘Ž ๐Ÿ‘Ž๐Ÿ‘ŽะO0ะžเฌ ๏ผฏOO๏ผฏOะžเฌ เฌ Ooooแต’แต’แต’แต’แต’แต’แต’แต’แต’ ๐Ÿ‘Ž ๐Ÿ‘Ž๐Ÿ‘Ž ๐Ÿ‘Ž ๐Ÿšซ ๐Ÿ‘Ž ๐Ÿ‘€ ๐Ÿ‘€ ๐Ÿ‘€ ๐Ÿ‘Ž๐Ÿ‘ŽBad shit
  • someone who thinks they know what they're talking about: comic books are light and fun so comic book movies should be just as light and fun!
  • DC Comics: had Kyle Rayner find his girlfriend dead in a refrigerator.
  • DC Comics: held a poll to see if Jason Todd, a mere child, lived or died.
  • DC Comics: had Ralph Dibny find his wife dead in their home, before he even knew, before she could even tell him that she was pregnant.
  • DC Comics: killed off Lian Harper.
  • DC Comics: killed off Damian Wayne.
  • DC Comics: killed off Superboy.
  • DC Comics: killed off Supergirl.

i have never seen perfect blue either but i do know both films can get kind of terrifying so maybe i would be more inclined to watch it with other people at the same time instead of freaking myself out aha ha ha ha ha & i think your point about the inception/paprika plot contrasts goes back to the difference in western-style conflict storytelling and the other like, eastern-style focus on change/perception there was a whole 4-panel comic post about those.

maybe the bar should have a satoshi kon movie streaming night… which would not exactly be a night, given that we’re all in different time zones. (i’m not sure i ever want to watch perfect blue, but i’d be up for paprika again. or millennium actress? i don’t think that one’s terrifying.)

i’m not sure what comic post you’re talking about, but now that i’ve gotten myself thinking about it, like, here’s a pretty clear contrast — satoshi kon’s vision of a dream world vs christopher nolan’s. both movies are crime dramas (paprika a lot more loosely), so it’s not even like they’re in completely different genres, but they’re doing very different things with the worlds they’ve built.

Tired of waiting for the MCU Black Widow movie? Mark Waid & Chris Samnee have made the comic you need to read.

Natasha Romanoff, Marvels premiere femme fatale has been delegated to the supporting cast of the mega-blockbuster MCU. She has shined in her appearances, especially in Cap 2, but even though the fans are crying for it she may never get a solo movie. If Kevin Feige and The Russo Brothers read the current ongoing series by Mark Waid, Chris Samnee, and Matthew Wilson that may be rectified.

This series is great. I have been reading comics since I could read. I probably learned to read from comics. Never in all my comic reading years have I been so drawn in to the story like I have with Black Widow. I would love to post more of the art but it would only spoil the amazing action that Chris Samnee has laid out so masterfully on the pages. The timing is incredible. Fight scenes move so fast and hard but every image is crisp and clear. My eye moves from panel to panel so fast that it plays like a film in my mind. I can feel every hit and hear the bones crack and break. Every shattered window, every explosive blast of force rolls over me like a THX. Samnee has laid some of his finest ink on paper here. Colorist Matthew Wilson sets the mood perfectly. The tones convey the twilight world of super-spies and espionage so well it completely immerses you in the story. The flashbacks are signified in a color shift that fits the cinematic feel extremely well. On a visual level alone, this book is worth your time. 

The plot is tight and the first four issues rolled on like a freight train. Then it settles in for some introspection just before it smacks you in the face with a rusty shovel of revelation. Why Mark Waid is not held in the same regard as Grant Morrison, Matt Fraction, and Kelly Sue DeConnick is a mystery. He’s been around the capes and tights for a long time and he knows what he’s doing. What’s more, he seems to have a genuine love for the characters he writes. Much in the same way the aforementioned Matt Fraction showed everybody why a non-powered super hero armed with “a weapon from the paleolithic era” belonged on a team of gods and monsters Waid has shown us why Black Widow is there too. Because she is scary as Hell.

I work in a comic shop and I hear some dude bros complaining that the art is “too cartoony”. If you are the sort of comic reader who needs a more realistic interpretation of Black Widow I don’t know what to tell you. I have a suspicion it may have more to do with the fact that Nat isn’t being portrayed in a more hyper-sexualized way. Sorry if a fully realized female character that doesn’t exist to provide you with punch meat isn’t your thing. There’s plenty of that stuff out there for you. This is a stylized, enthralling espionage story filled with thrills and a hard hitting, stone cold hero that could do some truly horrible things to you but chooses to be a good guy instead. I can’t recommend it enough. 

Seriously??
Alright, once and for all lets get this straight. Comic book movies do not have to be lighthearted and fun. People need to get this out of their heads but it’s only being drilled in further by the press and people like this dude ^ So now everyone thinks comic book movies should be fun and go in expecting that and obviously don’t get what they expect.
And why should comic book movies be fun??? Is it becasue children make up the majority of viewers for comic book movies? You know which other series children were the majority of viewers for? The Harry Potter series. And those movies had hardly any humor in them. Even less humor than the books, in fact. And it explored extremely dark themes. The second movie contained ‘her body will lie in the chamber forever’ written in blood on a wall for god’s sake. So it’s been proven that children can handle a certain amount of darkness.
The Marvel movie formula might be to cram a movie with fun and jokes and dance-offs but that just isn’t DC, alright? Let DC do their own thing. They don’t need to copy Marvel, they are their own brand. Just let them be.

Wolverine and Storm overrated because.........

I hate when everyone, is like storm and wolverine, are the best. People, only like wolverine, because he is, a savage, badass type, that doesn’t take junk. People only like Storm, because she is black, and I am tired of it. If storm was white, she wouldn’t be nearly as popular. The comics and  the movies, should be based, more on the leader, of the x-men, Cyclops, and the other originals. Wolverine and Storm, wasn’t even apart of the original team, so I don’t know how, this could of happened. what do you X-men, fans think ?

I hate seeing memes where it’s like “Next week” or “On August 5th, every girl is gonna be a Harley Quinn fan” *Shows Tony Stark rolling his eyes* or some bullshit. Why is that a bad thing? Why is a movie fan who is a non-comic book fan liking or falling in love with a character bad thing? Is it because you wanna feel so superior because you liked him/her first or read a damn comic first? Well get the fuck over yourself. I bet you didn’t from the jump start reading comics. I bet you grew up watching superhero movies, tv shows, or cartoons then started buying comics. And how about instead of being assholes, you converse with the new fans and say “Oh my gosh, if you loved him/her in the movie you should read the comics” and they might actually do it and you might get a new best friend rather than 100 likes on social media for being an asshole. And isn’t that what we want? More people to become comic book fans? But yet y'all try and bash the new ones? I can’t with y'all….

The problem with Yaoi.

The problem with Yaoi is that it has type cast every homosexual relationship as two hot young males banging every chapter and has ruined the perception of what an on screen (movie, tv, comic or cartoon) homosexual couple “should” look like. Not to say ALL yaoi titles are bad or lack depth but the shelves are dominated by shallow stories with more smut than context and I bet you anything if the hints of Homosexual interest had occured between Lares and Renaldo or Sour Cream and Buck, the fandom would have smut fanfic at the ready. But noooooo, two men over 35 display a arguably romantic emotional connection and its not gay or valid cause they’re not “hot”. Argue what you want but the truth is not every gay man is between the ages of 14 and 25 and brava for this show breaking yet another boundry and tipping their hat and acknowledging another pool of individuals that get zero validation due to their age. I love Steven Universe and I ship Mr. Smiley and Mr. Frowney, may their love be sweet and never incomplete!
