DarkShine3030, I have something to tell you. It's my opinion and no one's opinion should be questioned since it would be disrespectful. I don't want to offend anyone, but I thought I feel like I should say it.
I was once a fan to this TV show. My interest was short-lived, however, when I realized the show was really just... bad. The old Teen Titans series was great.
Another TV show I once watched was DC Super Hero Girls. I used to like that show a lot until one dreadful day. I'm heartbroken. When I watched Franken-Ivy, I discovered that Starfire lacked contractions in her speech just because it happened in both the original and the terrible spin-off series. I understood about her origin, but that version of Starfire in DC Super Hero Girls was the coolest and the clearest. Why did that version of her had to retain the same speech as her Teen Titans counterpart? Very bad luck if you ask me.
Seeing that Starfire will still have her speech lacking contractions I decided to quit, and I never watched DC Super Hero Girls again. I knew that Starfire lacked contractions in her speech. It happened after I watched Franken-Ivy, but I chose to ignore this to continue watching DC Super Hero Girls and paid a terrible price. The encounter with DC Super Hero Girls has taken its toll on me. From then on, the heartbreaking reminder will plague me until the day I die.
Oh no. ::::( That really does suck, but I'm going to tell from experience that things are going to turn out great. Just, please push through and try to not dwell on the bad stuff. I understand it can be hard, but just try.
DarkShine! I missed you! I noticed people leaving you messages and I didn't even know that you were back...I guess no one gave me the memo but oh well, it's nice to see you! Hope we talk sometime soon. I miss our conversations.
Yeah, I miss talking you with too! I'm happy to be back, though I guess I should have warned people that I would be very busy. Anyway, I'm trying to be as flexible as I could because I do want to talk to you guys more often.
Yeah, I'm pretty disappointed with Batman VS Superman, but I thought that Suicide Squad was relatively better than the other DC movies, although it was fairly cringe-worthy. I honestly hope they'll do better with the Justice League movies, but I've pretty much lost faith after Batman VS Superman.
I've also lost interest in the show, and I came back because I missed everyone else on here.
I actually got my hopes up for BvS. What a colossal letdown that was, and quickly got overshadowed by Captain America: Civil War. I've only seen like 2 people who liked it, and one of them mainly because they hated Nolan's Batman trilogy. The biggest mistake had to be Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor. What the hell were they thinking casting the guy from Social Network? It has all the pieces for a good film, but they were just unable to put it together correctly. It's a shame for Ben Affleck since his Batman was decent, he was just in the wrong film. He's welcome to play him again in the future.
I had spotted a lot of problems with Suicide Squad from the trailers, but I did not expect it to bomb that badly. I was really hoping I was wrong on that note. I have yet to see it myself to see exactly what the problem was. At least Suicide Squad got a mixed reception rather than flat out terrible like BvS.
Yeah it just got too silly for my taste, and I don't really care for the characters anymore.
Yeah, I was super pumped for BvS. When I went to go see the movie, I actually fell asleep halfway through the movie! I do agree that Ben Affleck did a pretty good job with Batman, but otherwise everything was unbelievably boring. And Doomsday, what was even up with that? I never got the purpose of adding him into the movie, and Eisenberg's Lex Luthor honestly reminded me so much of the Joker it wasn't funny. Luthor isn't supposed to be depicted as insane, rather calculating and manipulative.
And Suicide Squad... ugh, do not get me started on that. Will Smith's depiction of Deadshot was beyond awful. Honestly, his preformance reminded me of Toby McGuire's Spiderman. I'm not saying McGuire is awful, he was beyond amazing with Spiderman, but the amount of scenes Spiderman/Peter Parker cried/nearly cried in is unbelievable.
They tried too hard to follow the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and set up too many complex plotlines for one film. As well as the fact it was just too damned serious, without even a trace of happiness, you've basically got Superman thrown into a Batman film. Best character IMO had to be Alfred, he was as good as Michael Cain's Alfred from the Nolan films. I didn't think it was possible to make Doomsday suck, considering he's so easy to write. They turned the monster who killed Superman into a generic plot device to get Supes and Bats to team up. Eisenberg as Luthor was a disaster waiting to happen. Everyone in the world went WTF when he was announced, and not a single person was wrong. Lex Luthor is not meant to be some snobby teenager who loves to make stupid metaphoric speeches. He reminded me more of Anarky tbh.
Putting Will Smith in an ensemble cast film was never going to work, he's just had too many films as the solo action hero, so it was obvious he would steal all of the attention and turn it into "Will Smith and the Squad". He was also too bulky and too talkative to be Deadshot.
I don't know about Tobey McGuire being an amazing Spider-Man, he was a great Peter Parker, but he didn't really capture Spidey's witty wisecracking personality. Andrew Garfield and Tom Holland both did better on that note.
I wasn't really familiar with the Enchantress before this. I saw a teaser trailer where Waller introduced her and she seemed okay. I don't know what they did wrong with her.
I also wish Harley Quinn was in a Batman film first before ending up in the Squad. Her outfit didn't seem "Harley Quinn" enough tbh, I get they didn't want her jester outfit, but it would have been better if they went with Arkham Harley's design. I heard Jared Leto's Joker turned out alright, I'm not too sure if that's true.
So, you haven't gotten to actually see Suicide Squad yet?
Well, I hadn't heard much about the Enchantress before seeing the movie. All I can say is that she was horrid as the antagonist of the film. Honestly, it was too cliche and "edgy" to begin with, I guess to try to appeal to younger audiences.
And what I meant was that Toby McGuire made a fantastic Peter Parker, personally much better than Andrew Garfield. Peter is meant to act and appear as though he has a lack of self-confidence. And basically a generic 'nerd'. And that becoming Spiderman was a sort of transition from him being a kid everyone picked on to someone who could stand up for not only himself, but for others as well. Andrew's Spiderman didn't really demonstrate that transition, and he was pretty much the same regardless of whether he had powers or not.
I didn't really like Leto's Joker to be perfectly honest. Not only did he not appear that much in the film, he was barely even relevant. His minute-long appearences barely affected the outcome of the plot, and their only purposes were to mostly make room for a crap ton of fillers.
And I wish they could've given Harley a better outfit in the film. Again, the writers had made her outfit a bit too "edgy".
Well I heard it was bad from a lot of people, and I'm busy with college. So no I haven't seen it yet.
She was the antagonist? O_o Good thing I don't really care about spoilers. I just saw the clip where Waller summoned her and had her steal the file. Outside of that I don't know what she got up to.
Tobey made the perfect Peter Parker, but he pretty much kept the same personality when he was Spidey. In the comics, he's a whole new person once he puts on the mask, where he becomes a jokester and bit of a troll to his enemies (think a less insane version of Deadpool). There was never any of that with Tobey's Spidey. I agree that Andrew Garfield made a terrible Peter Parker because he was "too cool". But his performance as Spidey was spot on, being full of wisecracks and sarcasm, like the scene where he messes with the car thief.
But Tom Holland is hands down the best Spider-Man. He is perfect for both Peter Parker and Spider-Man, and he was so damned funny in Civil War and pretty much stole the whole show in his scene.
I originally hated Jared Leto's Joker, as he was far too flamboyant. The capped teeth and the tattoos were far too over the top, and was like he was trying too hard to seem like the Joker. I only heard critics say he was okay. Best Jokers are still Heather Ledger and Mark Hamill (esp. Arkham Joker).
Too un-Harley, and more "fanservice girl". Margot Robbie did okay with her personality, but it just missed the mark overall. Apparently Margot didn't like the outfit either. She probably would have been better off if they just went with the jester outfit.
That is beautiful. XXXXD I would be less disappointed of Suicide Squad was like that.
And I have to agree, Holland did a really good job with Spiderman, though I wish he had a few more scenes in Civil War. It would have been nice if his main purpose in the movie was not to show up, fight in a 'civil battle' with members of the Avengers, and abandoned. I believe he would had a lot of potential for that movie. Oh well, hopefully they decide to use him for an upcoming Marvel movie.
He will be. He's in an upcoming film called Spider-Man: Homecoming, which is also set in the MCU. It'll have Michael Keaton playing the Vulture. Didn't you see the post credit teaser at the end of Civil War?
Yeah, my only complaint with Civil War Spider-Man was how Tony magically figures out his identity and shows up in his house. I would have thought he recruits Spidey in the streets.
There's also the fact that the Civil War comics had Spidey being neutral rather than on a side. Though I guess he was friendly to both sides so that sort of counts.
No, I don't think I had seen the teaser at the end of Civil War, but I'm very keen on seeing Holland in the new movie.
Well, there were many things that were bothering me with Civil War. The 'civil war' scene felt like a filler in the movie. And I honestly despised the main antagonist. To be honest, I thought the first two Captain America movies were really good. I was fairly disappointed with Civil War, but it did have many great scenes. I just prefer the first two movies.
Really? I thought the "civil war" was supposed to be the whole point of the film, as in the real bad guy wasn't really the true villain, and have the heroes being the antagonists to each other. I really liked seeing Spider-Man, Antman, and Black Panther in that airport fight scene.
Yeah, Zemo was drastically altered from his comic self. He's supposed to be a master swordsman who could equal Captain America, here he's just some random guy with no powers who hates the Avengers. Definitely not an "iconic villain" by a long shot.
The first Captain America film felt rushed IMO and too "introductory". Red Skull was also made really weird, how his "red skull" face was a side effect of the drug rather than a mask. There's also that really horrid CGI done on Chris Evans to shrink his body down, but his head remains the same size.
Well, in the movie they really made it feel as though the 'civil war' scene was more filler than anything. I understand it was supposed to be the whole point of the movie, but it seemed to be more focused on the tension between Captain America and Iron Man, really.
I personally didn't really like the 'red skull face' either, but I mostly enjoyed the movie nonetheless, so I was willing to set that aside. In my opinion, I thought the whole 'introductory' feel of the first movie was kind of the point, as in it was meant to recount Rogers' story as the 'First Avenger'. And personally I thought it suited it.
True. But keep in mind the plot was adapted from the comic. The war was a lot bigger, and all the fans hated it because Tony was made a complete asshole. The film did a great job in making Tony more sympathetic and even rootable. They also greatly shrunk the war down to so it was 2 big battles.
I do get the airport scene was sort of fillery, but to be fair it was chock loaded with fanservice. It was just something there for the fun of it. But yeah, Tony was basically the antagonist even if he wasn't the real villain.
It was a good film. But it just had too much "comic silliness" with the stereotypical evil mastermind, the Tesserect energy weapon thingies, and the ending where Skull just vaporizes. Winter Soldier was just so much better, making an engaging storyline, likeable supporting characters, and more intimidating villains.
I mean Iron Man was also an origins film, but it felt more naturally progressive and less sci-fi silly. With some decently mapped out character development and plorlt progression.
I know what you're thinking, Who the hell is this? It's actually TATB, my account went down and in april and couldnt use a computer beacuse my parents have super crappy computers. But, I got a laptop for Christmas! So I'm up and running again, you can expect me to be on the wiki alot after today
Oh, and since I'm too scared to remove the "Honestly" message on my wall, can you please remove it for me? Yes, I didn't like that message, and I'm planning to remove it like it never happened, but I don't wanna look at the message. When you're back, can you please remove it for me?
