Popcorn Johnny: After all the DC hate by Marvel Fanboys, it's going to be so farking awesome watching this movie become the highest grossing superhero movie of all time.
trapped-in-CH: I just found out today they did an animated version of the Dark Knight returns. Watched a couple of clips on youtube. it's nearly a copy of the book. The voices suck though.
FirstNationalBastard: Frank Miller's response:[i14.photobucket.com image 244x327][www.amptoons.com image 500x745]
Keywork99: I'm so tired of people shiatting on Sucker Punch. It wasn't nearly as bad as everyone made it out to be.I wish I could live in a world where people thought the stuff in Sucker Punch was boring, because the stuff that they find awesome must be absolutely insane.
RexTalionis: Frank Miller's done nothing particularly interesting or original since the early 90s.
skozlaw: The characters are just shallow and one-dimensional...
YodaBlues: Agreed. Peter Weller does not do a good Batman. Kevin Conroy 4 Life
Keywork99: People say they don't get it
Keywork99: There are far worse films out there
Scorpitron is reduced to a thin red paste: I'm waiting for the superhero thing to burn itself out, but it's staying out there, kinda like the zombie thing.Oh! Zombie Superman vs. Zombie Batman.Or Superman vs. Batman vs. Zombies. Give me my money.
Keywork99: skozlaw: The characters are just shallow and one-dimensional...I always saw the five girls as a different aspect of the main character's personality (Babydoll being innocence, Sweet Pea being wisdom and maturity, Rocket being the feisty, fiery attitude, Blondie being insecurity [with her betraying the group to Blue in the end], and Amber being secure in sexuality). I don't know how many others saw it that way, personally (I heard some people say each girl was supposed to represent five different aspects of feminism), but that's just one thought. They're really just ciphers for the viewer to relate to. You can say that is shallow and one-dimensional, but I thought it was incredibly interesting....the story is gibberish...The story is not that hard to understand and follow. People say they don't get it, and I don't understand how they can't. It's very straightforward as long as you pay attention....and the whole thing is too long.It wasn't even two hours. But I suppose if you don't like something it can feel like a long time. Personally, I felt it could have gone longer.I personally don't mind if someone didn't like it - I mean, you're free to dislike whatever you want. But my point is that people really overstate how bad they think it is. There are far worse films out there. Hell, there were a bunch of films released the same year that were worse.
HeartBurnKid: /the more time goes on, the more obvious it is that DKR and Year One are the only good stories Miller had in him.

I mean who gives Robocop wings?
Hebalo: Lol. Love it. Farkers hacking on Miller's Batman? Of all human beings on the planet, Miller understands Batman better than anyone. Arguments to the contrary are risable at best. Even All Star Batman and Robin was more original, more groundbreaking than anything since. Scott Snyder writes a good story, but he's nowhere near Miller's level.
T.rex: Frank Miller is among the best in the game who've ever lived, so its always fun and intriguing to watch people try and tear him down.
Cargo: He sucks. He wrote some good things in the 80's but now he blows. If you would like to debate this topic, I will refer you again to the stories mentioned above to show that there is no room for debate here.Sorry.
