Alrighty folks.. It’s time for the second half of this two part blog about.. “THE TOP 10 TIMES DC/MARVEL FILMS GOT IT WRONG!”
The first part we focused on MARVEL FILMS.. This time, we look at DC FILMS..
(Note: In my search for DC movies.. I didn’t find a whole lot of Live-Action Materials.. So this list will include Animated Features as well)
10. “GREEN LANTERN”
Where can I begin.. Story? Special Effects? Acting? Characterization? All of it!? The story was very sloppy. The quality of the Specail Effects looks like it belonged in a Sega Studios video game. Who’s smartass idea was it to make the suit animated anyway?!? Acting was second rate ate best.. The talent that was in the film was completley waisted. Characterization was WAAY off.. I’m a big fan of Ryan Reynolds, but he is no Hal Jordan! The fact that the studio went with Hal Jordan in the first place is questionable in itself.. The whole movie was a bit of a mistake!
9. “SON OF BATMAN”
The first of DC’s new expansive Animated Universe films, Heavily influenced by The New 52 comic book line. It also incorporated Grant Morrison’s story line of the same name. In my humble option.. Total waste of time. The Animation is top notch and beautifully done.. But the film lacked all heart and substance. The Story was unimpressive and fell flat…
8. “BATMAN VS. ROBIN”
The follow up to “Son Of Batman” is by far.. The Worst! It took my beloved Court Of Owls story line and completley bastardized it! Again, DC Animation failed to give this one any heart at all.
7. “SUPERMAN RETURNS”
WB wanted to ressurect the Superman franchise after a nearly 30 years or so after “Superman 4: The Quest For Peace” The only problem… It literally picks up after Superman 2.. (Which really isn’t the problem) The real problem?.. It was the most uneventful and most boring Superman Film ever! Bryan Singer and The Studio waisted Brandon Rouths talent and capabilites as Supeeman and as an actor.. He was litterally just there to reenact Christopher Reeves. Which was the wrong choice. They should have started completley fresh. Forgoing the origin story angle and made a brand new adventure, instead of a rehashing of what came before.
6. “THE DARK KNIGHT RISES”
This followed the greatest Batman film since, BATMAN (89) “THE DARK KNIGHT” and it was.. Stupid! So many plot holes and the logic was off. Batman would not go into seclusion/retirement over Maggie Gylinhaul! The main plot was pointless.. I would have given the movie a pass, if it wasn’t for the very last 45 minutes of the movie. Disappointing to the bitter end!
5. “BATMAN V SUPERMAN. DAWN OF JUSTICE”
(Here Comes the Hate mail) Youshould all know how I feel about BVS.. But to put it simple.. Too much,Too soon, Too mishandled! Poor plot structure. Not enough time focused in the relationship between Batman and Superman. Poor editing. And worst of all.. Piss Poor Directing!
4. “JONAH HEX”
Seriously.. Uhm.. Why?! Just.. Why?!?
3. “BATMAN AND ROBIN”
“Chill!” “What Killed the Dinosaurs? The Ice Age!”, “Ice To See You!”, “It’ll Be A Cold Day in Hell!” Tell me you did not read any of those quotes in a Arnold Schwarzeneger voice!.. Yes you did you liar! The worst thing to happen to batman since.. Ever! And I do mean.. EVER!! Batman and Robin did to the Batman, what Quest for Peace did to Superman.
If you thought this travesty wouldn’t make the list.. Guess again! The fuck was this?! Seriously? Who greenlit this piece of shit!? I hope they never work in Hollywood ever again! They and the guys behind Batman and Robin should be stripped of their clothes and made to parade around the streets while a nun rings a bell behind them screaming, “SHAME! SHAME!”
Drum Roll please…
Numero UNO on this list..
Thats right folks.. It wasn’t some strange nightmare from your childhood! This actually happened.. Shaq and the people behind this movie should join the Catwoman, and Batman and Robin people on the streets naked and shamed to the fucking bone! This. Was. Wrong! Look to the past people, THIS is what Hollywood gave us! Be happy we are beyond this now! Rejoice my friends! We are in the golden age of Comic Book Movies.. If you ever get depressed with any other Superhero film that comes.. Just remember.. It could have been STEEL!
