You shall have to disagree with the folks behind the Academy Awards, then. They quite enjoyed it.
I know. Doesn t bother me.
Is Batman technically a superhero? What's his superpower exactly?
I have also heard his balls are made of bronze.
Should there be, though? I don't think I agree that power has to be otherworldly in other to qualify as being a superhero. They just need to be someone who has abilities and strengths most don't have and use those to fight crime.
Perhaps. As I said I am a novice on the topic of superheroes. I only saw The Dark Knight for the first time this weekend... 8-} ;))
No that's Doc Savage
Wow - how did you find it? I still enjoy it as much as I did the first time. :)
I am not sure. It is undoubtedly well made with some great scenes and acting performances. I can understand why people hype it so much, although personally I was not exactly blown out of the water. I guess it is simply not the genre for me. That is not to say I didn't enjoy it, and I am on board with those who are interested to see what Nolan could do with Bond.
I still very much love The Dark Knight, but I think I prefer Batman Begins on the whole. Begins has a wonderful flow and energy to it, whereas The Dark Knight has aspirations of grandeur that it mostly hits but the pacing takes a hit as a result.
Snyder's films, Dark Phoenix... hell, even Batman & Robin will look so much better suddenly.
"But D, those aren't legit theatrical movies!", you're saying. Fine, Superman III and Superman IV The Quest For Peace. Compared to those two, Justice League is worth all the Oscars in the world. Compared to "nuclear man", the whole "My mom is named Martha too" plot is exceptional writing. Compared to Hackman in Quest For Peace, Eisenberg is an awesome Luthor. Compared to Luthor's nephew (because it's ALWAYS clever to bring in nephews, isn't it, Purvis and Wade?) who utters the words, "The Dude of Steel! Boy, you gonna GET it!", any line in any DCEU or MCU film feels written by the Bard himself.
It's okay to dislike a certain film, but folks, for the "worst" superhero moments, you're gonna have to dig a LOT deeper. You don't like Arnold as Freeze? Not even Arnold likes Arnold as Freeze. But nothing he does or says in that movie is as bad as what Shaquille O'Neal does or says in Steel or what Finola Hughes does or says in Generation X.
I've seen 'em all, and I can promise you that "bad" gets a whole new meaning. ;-)
Always ready to take a bullet for the team, @CraigMooreOHMSS. ;-)
The first superhero was The Phantom. 1936.
No, the Phantom is a costumed hero. So is Zorro. 1919. Also the Scarlet Pimpernel, 1903. And let's remember, the most common generic term for costumed heroes in early comic books was "mystery men." It may be time to bring that term back into use! Finally, to throw a REAL curveball into the works, the actual term "superhero" is JOINTLY TRADEMARKED by Marvel and DC. Has been since the '60s. Therefore, if Dark Horse comics wants to publish the adventures of a costumed, superpowered, heroic character... they can't actually call him a superhero. Not as far as the lawyers at Marvel & DC are concerned. The issue has never been litigated, but the paperwork has been filed....
Yes, I like Batman. Do you?
As for the worst moment in Super-hero history (on the screen) : The Bat-credit card from Batman and Robin. So bad it was it made Denny O'Neill scream :
