The Wolverine

Posted by Quasar on Monday, July 29, 2013

So how was it, Goits? Or are you saving your hard-earned money for Smurfs 2?

That's a rhetorical question. Obviously you'll be plantin' your ass for the Smurfs!

No money. Well, some money, but it's understood it will all be pissed out in various directions within the month. Jubbers and I will soon be in negative money. With any luck, we will be out of negative money and into positive money by September.

Smurfs 2 is in 2 days. Best be borrowin' from Jubboiter's college fund.

There is no college fund. I had no college fund. Why should she?

I'm referring to the fund jubbers started but hasn't told you about yet.

That was an open-end fund.

I found out about it. Had to go in and do some clean up to keep us in the pink.

 The reviews are mixed.  But aren't they all these day?  Maybe we are spoilt.

They weren't that mixed for Spider-Man 2, X-Men 2Iron Man, The Dark Knight, or The Avengers. Those all met with a fair amount of acclaim. Maybe they act like a collective measuring stick. Maybe if the reviewer doesn't think a comic superhero movie meets the standards of those five, they come down harder.

The ten-year-old version of myself would have shat himself if he'd been told he'd be getting all these comic superhero movies. Too bad it took so long for these movies to get here.

 Or even vs. the early 00s Marvel attempt to turn everything into a movie.  Those were dark times for comic book movies.

It wasn't Marvel, exactly. It was every company with rights to a Marvel property. Blade, X-Men, and Spider-Man turned out to be big business, so all those properties that had been languishing in Development Hell for over a decade were greenlighted pretty much all at once.

 I thought that after the success of Spider-Man etc they basically sold everything to anyone.

X-Men probably got the ball rolling as far as getting rights sold, but Spider-man was what got them all greenlit. My favorite memory of Spider-man's release was that because the box office was so unexpectedly huge, everyone felt they had to react in some way, so Fox moved Daredevil's release up a week. See? They noticed!

I was just discussing this very topic with my girlfriend recently.  Goiter nailed it, Blade really kicked the whole thing off. (Batman movies not included)  Then X-Men really took the next step, and is still my favorite comic movie.  The fight on the Statue of Liberty is so classic.  I'm hyped to see The Wolverine.  Anyone else really enjoy the previous Wolverine?

I thought it was pretty terrible.

 Blade was the starter, but X-Men really kicked it into high gear.  I remember going to see X-Men with my ex-wife.  I think it was our first movie trip in the UK.

 I hear Hugh Jackman's abs get an "A," no matter how good or bad the movie is.

Mal - that pun is worthy of some kind of sanction.

Negs - I find your objectifying of a member of the opposite sex as nothing more than a sex object as insulting.

Also, I appear to be suffering from a nasty bout of hypocrisy.

Haha, the dialogue in this thing reminds me of the good ol' days reading my brother's copy of Mulligan Stew!

Wolverine 1 isn't near the disaster some would make it out to be. The so-called great comic book films aren't as good as people would have you believe either.

There just isn't that big of a gap. They all kind of hover around "Well that was ok, I guess" territory.

Depends on if you like comic book movies, and different interpretations of the characters in them.

I think Iron Man (1) is pretty darned funky, and think Batman Begins & The Dark Knight are all kinds of awesome.

DKR hamstrung itself in trying to close the trilogy and having the unfortunate death of Ledger deny it a 2nd run at The Joker.  I like MoS more as I think about it more, but feel the Bats/Supes team up is NOT the way forward.

Spidey I and II are cool.  III....... not so much.

At the other end, Elektra etc??  Not so much.

It made me want to produce my own improvised weaponry from commonly available hardware store items.

I joke about rape all the time.

Then again, I was raped. I'm allowed.
