There is not a single useful or new plot point in there - it's an obvious PR document with no value.

The Dark Knight Rises trifecta in play.

Seriously, stop with the farking appetizers and get to the main dish.

Voice change?

We already knew why Halle wasn't Catwoman....

That movie angered me so much. If they wanted to remake the Crow with a female protagonist, why not just go whole hog, and ACTUALLY call it the Crow?

Wasn't there a female Crow at some point, too? Or am I getting it confused with Grendel again?

Probably was. I only read the original Crow story, that the first movie was based on. Wouldn't surprise me. The concept lends itself to multiple characters, kinda like "Dial H for Hero."

Now THERE'S a comic that needs adapting...for tv.

This document doesn't tell me if JGL is going to end up building some claws, putting on the cowl and killing the shiat out of petty criminals. Therefore, worthless.

Not the same. That's one kid who gets pre-determined powers. (I admit, I haven't seen the show to know if there's an element of randomness involved.)

Dial H is random people getting random powers, based on their personalities.

I think there was a Crow titled story about a woman who taught kindergarten or something.. she and all the kids were killed and she came back to avenge them.

Yes, in the comics only though. I would have liked to actually see that one made into a movie rather than the turd sandwiches they served up after the first one.

Aren't they making a reboot?

After SyFy starts popping out "original" movies from the franchise you need to just let it go. Somethings really must stay dead.

I never saw a problem with the voice. If you're half insane and your alter ego has a normal voice, your alter ego is pretty farking lame.

If someone like George Clooney or better yet, Antonio Banderas, didn't want people to identify them when they do commercial voicovers, it would make sense for them to alter it somehow.

But there is no reason for them to not want to be identified, so we get we get a latino bee, known for his roles as a gunslinger, selling us some nasal congestion thing.

Batman, as a character, has plenty of motivation. So why all the hate?

I always thought it should have been Sarah to have been killed and come back as the Crow in the second one. It would have tied in well with the first movie.

I kind of liked the tie in they did with her in the second movie. It had a lot of the same aspects of the first and I didn't mind it at all, as sequels go.

The third movie is where it went to hell in a handbasket, the main actor was a good choice, but way too much of movie took place during the daytime and the suburbia/midest vibe killed much of the gritty darkness of the first two. Remo Williams as the bad guy doesn't cut it. Fred Ward shouldn't have been allowed into serious movies. It was so bad I didn't even bother with the one with Tara Reid, as if that's not a bad sign in and of itself.

TV series has a fairly high rating on imdb, it might be worth a glance.

AbsoLUTEly, it is! It was a pretty good adaptation that manage to add on some nice twists, including an overarching conspiracy that fit nicely with the Crow story.

Too bad that the studio that made it got bought out, causing the production to halt. I remember watching it every week, and getting into it a LOT, and being quite upset with it being cancelled.

I didn't look too closely until after I posted. I found two interesting bits after that

The guy who played the crow in The Tara Reid movie is Edward Furlong! Tara Reid was sign enough,

The TV series however, I've seen that guy in other movies(Sepcificially Brotherhood of the Wolf, great movie but foreign language). I'm half debating contemplating a means to watch the TV show.

Did it have an ending? It wasn't cancelled mid story arch was it? I cannot stand that.

(After things like Farscape and Firefly, and the oturage at the loose ends, I'm surprised people still do that with TV shows....I think it's the fault of sadistic assholes myself. Glad their wallets listen to the masses and we got sufficient movie endings to those two shows)

Well, if it helps, he's also the Chairman on Iron Chef America. :-)

And Hulu has it on the free side.

Not the season arc, no. But it did cut off the big myth arcs, why there are Crows (Yes, multiples.), why this company has interest in him, a few other plots.

Truth be told, I haven't watched it in a while. I need to.

TY for the info, bookmarked, will get to it when I have the time.
 
2012-07-06 04:04:30 PM  
So do they change the annoying voice or what?
 
2012-07-06 06:32:16 PM  
I just don't care about any of this anymore, I have such a rager for this movie it needs to open now before I make a mess in my tighty whities.
 
2012-07-06 07:33:57 PM  
Be careful everyone, there was a screening today and there might be spoilers floating around. So stay away from Aint-it-cool.com.

/ probably didn't have to tell you not to bother going there, screening or not.

Came here for some discussion on The Goddamn Batman and you people are talking about The Crow?

Here it is...The Crow was awful. All of it. Now...back to The Goddamn Batman.

That's showing up way late to the party, and being a buzz kill, trying to sober everyone up so that you can get drunk with them.

Deal with it sparky, that's the way the conversation works, it doesn't stop because you step out for an afternoon with a box of tissues your mom's hand lotion.

Usually their personality has nothing to do it. They get a different superhero every time. Which I think is why it'd never end up as a TV series- no tv show is going to do production design that involves coming up with new superhero designs every week (often a number of them!). If it's live action, the costume department would start stabbing the scriptwriters with scissors. You might be able to do better animated, but it's still a tough thing to sell to a suit. There's so little reuse.

foo monkey: Voice change?


Well, any asshole who saw the trailers figured that out. The Dark Knight was plagued by the fact it's climactic scenes were hampered by the Marlboro Batman, and with Catwoman and Bane knowing that it's Bruce Wayne under the mask, the need to disguise his voice is gone.
 
2012-07-06 10:51:27 PM  
Ahhh,Catwoman. What a laughably awful piece of celluloid.

He did the voice in TDK when he was alone with Lucious. Split personality maybe.

That's what I was on about, he's not quite right in the head. As for being alone with L, maybe it was just an oversight, which would be the directors fault(sort of), crap happens.

Can't blame an actor for slipping in a scene really, the director, or anyone around, really, should catch a slip like that instead of letting it get into the final cut. I don't think the voice change was a really planned thing though, and once it surfaced, no one put any real thought into it and just rolled with it.

Either way, it can be explained away with teh crazy, both movies so far have shown the character to be a little unstable or even tortured. Not crammed in, but sort of subtle, so the people that just want the popcorn action can have it, and the people that like to use their minds some, can apply it to the movie as well. That's what's good about the modern Batman and a movie like Inception. Appeals to the maximum amount of people without dumbing it down, or beating someone over the head with a concept who don't want to hear about it.

Only when wearing the mask, indicating it's something in the suit that modulates his voice.

Actually, my biggest problem with the Nolan films is that he's too sane. He really just acts like a cop who happens to wear a batsuit.

DOES HE LOOK LIKE A COP?

Actually, I agree with you. Not only does this Batman seem a bit too hinged (Michael
Keaton really comes across as disturbed in comparison) but the Batman character seems a bit diluted. I wonder if the fierce desire to ground him in reality creates a lesser Batman. He doesn't come across as intelligent as previous Batmans, he's certainly physically tough but strikes me as not mentally or emotionally tough. He operates as Batman for what? Six months to year from Batman Begins to The Dark Knight, right? In that time, he encounters a villain that pretty much outwits him, considers giving up his secret identity, sees the mob figure out how far he'll go and become less intimidated by him. The new movie is eight years later, he's still mentally, physically and emotionally messed up...did he not think this whole Batman thing through? Is this Batman in over his head?

Yeah, Keaton was great. Just unhinged enough. Never felt it with Bale.

He took a gangster up to the third floor and, when told the fall wouldn't kill they guy, replied that he knew, and then broke the guy's legs by pushing him over.

Based on fark cop threads, that sounds like SOP
