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.

 He's written some things in the upper echelons, sure, but he's not in the 'best' category. It's a small category. I'd say...Eisener, Moore, and Kirby are the only ones who had careers that would allow them to be consider 'the best'. Miller peaked and has been riding the trail of his success. Brubaker, Fraction, Bendis, Azzarello, Ennis, Millar, and Morrison are maybe destined to be in their company.
Name a good, not great, comic he's written since 1999. You can't. However, you can name some abominable works he's penned in that time.

Dhusk: Christ, why doesn't he also meet with Rob Liefeld and Jeph Loeb while he's at it?

That way he can complete comic books' Unholy Trifecta fo Suck


Jeph Loeb actually wrote one of the greatest Batman stories of all time, The Long Halloween and I'd argue that  Hush falls into the upper 10% of Batman stories as well....
Sure, I'm not a huge fan of his, but give him props for Batman.

Zack Snyder somehow managed to make a Superman movie more boring than Superman Returns.

Popcorn Johnny: Rwa2play: I'm about drop some "OH, SNAP!" on you:

Man of Steel: $644 Million worldwide after 7 weeks.

The Avengers crossed $700 Million worldwide....in 13 days from its US opening.

Therefore, your argument is invalid.

Man of Steel was a much better movie, no matter what the box office receipts were. Using your logic, Alice in Wonderland is a better movie than Goodfellas.


Not only is MoS not a good movie, it's a horrible Superman movie. The Avengers do a better job at being heroes than the guy who's supposed to be THE hero of all heroes. They're minimizing civilian casualties as part of their fighting while Superman is doing half of Zod's work for him BUT OH JEEZE HE NEEDS TO SAVE THOSE THREE PEOPLE SO BAD.  MoS was to Superman what the 90s were to superhero comics as a whole. People like dark and gritty so let's do it for its own sake.

/Superman Returns is a much better movie
//Avengers is still better than both

Hebalo: Cargo: Hebalo: Mugato: Man of Steel was just so dour and joyless. It's like some suit saw the Dark Knight movies and figured all comic book movies should be dark and gritty and emo. That just doesn't work with Superman. At least The Avengers had personality.

That hug smile on the face of Superman when he flew for the first time was SO DOUR!!!!!! The scene where he puts on a cape in his backyard and his parents look on was JOYLESS!!!! The revenge scene with the trucker was UNACCEPTABLY SERIOUS!!!!

Seriously, WTF?

Settle. The f*ck. Down.

What the hell is wrong with you?

Sorry Dad. Did my use of Cap offend you or something?


No, it's that your incessant whining is incredibly irritating. I'm starting to think you actually are Frank Miller.

Either way, put some thought into shutting the f*ck up.

And using your logic, anything is true if one person says it is. Or does that only count if that person is named "Popcorn Johnny"?

All I know is when I heard Kevin Smith's podcast fellating WB's decision on making Superman/Batman by using that thrice damned DKR quote, I nearly lost my composure.  I have had it up to here with the farking Bat God and the Grimdark pantheon that he has.  WB if you want all the geek's money (including mine) for a Batman/Superman movie go for a Dini/Englehart-like version of the character.

Trust me we'll all have a lot more fun.

Hey.

Go.
Fark.
Yourself.

With all the stupidity I read here, I'm certainly within my rights as a Farker to express my opinions.

Don't like it? Well... Actually, I don't give a fark if you don't.

The way Kevin was jizzing his pants before HBO, you'd think DC reinvented the wheel instead of proving that they're nothing but a one-trick pony by turning to Batman less than a year after the last franchise ended.

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.


I'm not even a comic fanboy and I find your comment laughable. Yay, undeveliped-reboot-Batman-post-best-Batman-ever-on-screen meets latest-crappy-Superman.

I don't know what it is with some of these people who seem to be convincing themselves that MoS is better than The Avengers.  Is it that WB's so farking incompetent that they'll clutch to anything that looks remotely decent and they'll say "OMG! BEST THING EVAH!"?

I mean Marvel's had stinkers and a half (Hulk, Elektra) but that was by no means the fault of Marvel Studios.  Their weakest movie has been "Captain America: The First Avenger" but even that's a decent "watch once and then forget it".  Most of DC/WB's stuff is "you're out by the first half hour" with the exception of Nolan's Batman and the DCAU movies..

Since I've managed to generate some discussion in the thread without actually weighing in on TFA: Frank Miller sucks and this is a big mistake.

Bonanza Jellybean: Yeah, I'm sure a moron and a fascist will make a phenominal writing team. *jerk-off motion*


... and just what have you written?

Congratulations, you're a trope.
