People in this thread are offended by the notion that making more 'grown-up' movies is a bad thing because everyone on Fark is a comic book dipshiat.

Of course there are still grown-up movies. ALL of you guys are GROWN-UP. It's simply the fact that the Avengers media.comicbookmovie.com is considered a grown-up movie these days.

So you guys are all grown-up watchng grown up movies talking about The Avengers media.comicbookmovie.com all day.

ALL OF YOU!

I know ALL of your Fark handles and you ALL splooged on that stupid shiat all day long for farking months.

What happened was people realized film and other visual media is, for the almost completely most part, an inferior medium for presenting complex ideas, themes and stories. It's a great medium for presenting pretty ideas that require less thought than more to be plausible

Anyone that wants complexity, reads*.

My book is devoted both to the gruesome truths of the system (movies on an iPod?) and the exhilarations of a shocking, disruptive event.

I've read his book recently. What he fails to mention is that he also put in an excellent section on lawn care and how to keep young people off of it.

You think that the Twilight novels are superior to the movies, don't you?


Well, yes, but that's not saying much for either.

Did that dude do a "they'd NEVER make that today!" with a movie that's 5 years old?

I think there are more "movies for grown-ups" today than there were decades ago. You just don't see them making huge numbers at the box office. Doesn't mean they don't exist, lazy person.

Articles like this are the equivalent of the size 0 woman complaining that everything is just too big and she can't find anything that fits.

"Game of Thrones", book 1, after watching the HBO season one of the same, was like deja vu.

The rest were a poor imitation of the books.
