    well considering the amount of movies coming out each year, how many are actually comic book movies? I'd say there are as many as romantic comedies if not more coming out...

    think comic book movies end up being seen like too much cause they're the ones with the biggest budgets/hype

    I don't think there's an oversaturation at all. In actuality, Comic book movies is a genre that's been pretty much ignored and Hollywood has figured out there's a lot of stories and variations to tell.

    I'd say there's more hits than missed when it comes to comic book movies. Just look at the past year or so.

    We had Jonah Hex-Sucked
    The Losers-Entertaining
    Scott Pilgrim vs World-Clever and unique
    Iron Man 2-Entertaining, but wildly uneven
    Red-Good movie
    Kick ***-See Pilgrim
    Green Hornet-A different spin on the genre. Okay

    If they all were doing the same thing, then I think a valid arguement could be made about oversaturation. In reality, I think, each film has been pretty unique in the genre and shows different facets, unlike a lot of the aforementioned romantic comedies that pretty much plug in the same formula. NOW THAT is a tired genre. Same goes for slasher films, another genre with a plug and play mentality.

    Painting comic book movies, and Superhero with such a wide brush does them a disservice. All mysteries aren't the same, are they? Action films?

    Thor is a fish out of water tale with a Lords of the Rings kinda slant. How many films are like that?

    Captain America is ostensibly a WWII film about a soldier with super abilities. Once again, find another film like that?

    Priest is basically a horror film with an action film framework.

    Cowboys VS Aliens is another unique spin on a comic book movie.

    In terms of straight superhero movies in the classic, broad sense, there's really only Green Lantern, X-Men, Captain America and Thor coming out this year. Four Films.

    Four. Films.

    Out of the hundreds of films out there, that doesn't strike me as any kind of oversaturation, especially given that Thor and CA were purposefully put out around the same time for marketing reasons, as part of a bigger picture.. (Last year we only had two traditional superhero movies)

    And I leave you with this insightful quote:

    Far as I'm concerned, bring them on!! It's a genre that's been hugely ignored.

    I thought Thor was pretty good, but overall seemed very disjointed. The first 30 minutes bored me, then I really enjoyed the milddle third a lot, and then the last 30 minutes was just OK.
    I agree with this assessment. The Asgard stuff just didn't do much for me.

    I try to not judge a movie based upon what genre it is in. But on whether I enjoy the movie, whether it is a good movie.

    I loved the Ironman and the two Dark Knight movies. Loved the three Lord of the Ring movies.

    I look to see what the critics say about a movie before I go see it. That usually works for me. For example Bridesmaids is getting great reviews, so I'll probably go see it even though most think it is a chic flick

    As long as it isn't a Michael Bay directed film. I'll see almost anything.

    Green Hornet and Thor were both OK, not great , but not bad

    Zombieland

    It was pretty funny and kept me entertained.

    The Zombie Kill of the week by the nun had me rolling. I definitely did not see that coming.

    The Oxford Murders (2008)

    John Hurt and Elijah Wood in an intelligent who-done-it set on the Oxford campus in England.

    While I watched this I kept thinking Umberto Eco had something to do with it, but it turns out it's adapted from a novel by Argentine mathemetician Guillermo Martinez. Neveretheless, I have to applaud and recommend a mystery that features the fibonacci sequence and the pythagorean sect.

    Fun intellectually and viscerally, as the murders mount and the police receive notes featuring a sequence of symbols from the murderer. Predict the next symbol in the sequence, and solve the murders? Or is there a sophisticated misdirect taking place?

    Also, Leonor Watling has nice boobs.

    "Planet of the Apes" (The original 1968 version).

    I like it... What can I say?... And I'm not just monkeying around here!

    Bridesmaids. Funniest movie I have seen since The Hangover.

    Laughed really hard.

    Not a chick flick really.

    Judd Aratow is the writer/director

    I heard Nicolas Cage say that he was working on a Ghost Rider sequel. I hope the sequel is better than the first movie.

    Probably 3 years off (there's no script yet), but I think that's when we can expect Kill Bill V. 3. No Bill, but there will be few movies that I'll look forward to seeing more than that one.

    Hollywood must suck it dry till this genre is as dead as Western movies.

    I still can't believe that they're actually going to reboot Spider-Man this soon
    Sony has to put out a Spider-Man movie every few years or they lose the rights back to Marvel. Guess they figure the easiest way to crank out a new movie is just to do a reboot.

    As someone who read Tintin as a kid, nothing makes me happier to see this get into a movie, especially done by Spielberg and Peter Jackson. Hooray!!!

    Saw Thor in theaters, solid 8/10.

    Then went home and watched The Fugitive. Big time 10/10.

    I am soOOoooo with you on that, suaveness. I'm surprised Hollywood even remembered Tintin. REALLY fond memories of his books/cartoons. Problem is going to be how it translates to today's generation and I'm a little leery of the motion capture style they're using. I'm going to be cautiously optimistic, with the emphasis on optimistic!

    Pirates (Stranger Tides)-I liked it. Would rank it somewhere between the first, which I think I liked the most, and the second, which I'd liked as next best. This one had a relatively simple plot to follow. We stayed through the credits and were rewarded with a 20 second snippet, though hard to say what would be developed in a Pirates V flick.

    I'm glad to hear it. I was encouraged by what I'd read about it a month or so ago, and this is just reinforcing my now raised (to a point) expectations.

    I saw Priest yesterday. Good but too short- could have used more plot setting and background on how the world became a desolate wasteland with humans corralled into dirty, polluted religious proselytization camps run by the Roman Catholic church.

    When I saw who they cast to play the some of the roles I got pretty excited because I thought they did a great job in casting. The reviews seem to agree too.

    Some first thoughts from reviews are out ( Embargo on full reviews until the 25th ).

    __________________________________________________ ___________________

    Simply put I loved it. Itís a superior, exciting, and intelligent comic book movie. McAvoy and Fassbender are brilliant ... and beyond the movieís expected grand action Vaughn has managed to instill X-Men: First Class with a real emotional core, complexity and a huge amount of style.

    http://www.obsessedwithfilm.com/movi...#ixzz1N12Azoge

    __________________________________________________ ___________________

    James McAvoy (Charles Xavier), Jennifer Lawrence (Raven/Mystique) and director Matthew Vaughn (Kick ***, Stardust) deserve much credit for bringing X-Men up to date, refreshed, while, ironically, taking it back in time...

    There is all the excitement, pace and spectacle that you would expect and want from an X-Men film, but what makes X-Men: First Class a film that I canít wait to see again is the people in it. Jennifer Lawrence (Winterís Bone) is one of the true marvels. Vulnerable and fierce, Lawrenceís Mystique has extraordinary depth and much of it is portrayed with no need for words. Whether blue and proud or white and ashamed, this Mystique reflects better than most here the blur between good and evil. But alongside Lawrence we also have fantastic performances from James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender and Kevin Bacon to name just three. For creating this new X-Men world, from which one sequel at least should be demanded, we should be grateful to director Matthew Vaughn.

    __________________________________________________ ___________________

    It seems that the Marketing materials imported from the US really hasnít been doing this film justice, we all know about the badly photoshopped posters, other EU countries getting trailers with better clips etc but the feedback from initial screenings in the UK has been phenomenal and hereís just a snippet of what Andrew thinks of X-Men: First Class, which hits cinemas Nationwide on June 1st. PREBOOK SOON, Itís gonna be geektastic, noÖ GEEKGASMIC!!

    Uh, they gave us the best unintentional comedy of the 21st century. I'd say it was a great success.


    The Tin Tin trailer looks awful. Even Robert Zemeckis was, like, that looks really fake.

    No surprise on X-Men. Matt Vaughn is one of the best out there.
