Watched Soderbergh's "Behind the Candalabra" the other night.....Douglas was pretty entertaining as Liberace, but Matt Damon gave a performance worthy of a best actor award. His character transformation over the course of the film is real impressive and he did one of the better displays of a cokehead on screen that I can recall.

Yep, I can barely watch a premise that involves completely fooling everybody with your eyeglass-disguise kit. I watched the old black and white Superman, watched the movies, but it is beyond stupid.
Supes is just another Christ allegory. Except when he's wearing glasses of course.

I think 75 years ago, the Superman idea was fine. But in 2013', the entire story of his powers and where he's from, and the glasses as a disguise doesn't work.

Of course the premise is stupid but movies are supposed to allow you to suspend reality for a couple of hours. Sure, a nice documentary, fact based movie is good to watch, but sometimes you just need something mindless, super hero movies do that.

As for silly movies coming out soon, I am looking forward to Planes which is basically Cars but in the sky. The joy of having a young child is that you can see those movies and not feel badly about it.

Personally I always saw the disguise as almost metaphorical. Having it just be glasses and maybe a hairdo is more so you can still relate to the character and see that they're the same 'inside.' He's got the power to reverse the earth's rotation, clearly the actual disguise is somehow better than hipster glasses and khakis. This is also why clearly suave and muscular looking Clark Kent's are often treated as 98 pound nerds. That's my interpretation though.

Bleedsblue&white
06-13-2013, 09:42 PM
Well Count, I like a little bit of reality in my non-reality. Not a lot...I'm not going to pick apart great shows like Star Trek, not going to rip Star Wars,I don't need to notice the hole in the Laws of Physics, but...wearing eyeglasses is enough to fool Lois Lane, the chick who's supposed to be in love with you?
Really?

That's too much for me.
Going to be a great movie though, that's what I hear.

MapleLeafBlueJayBoy
06-13-2013, 09:45 PM
Well in this movie, I don't think Lois is going to be that dumb. Seems from the clips she actually is tracking down Superman's origins on earth. All the way to winding up on Mrs. Kent's doorstep to ask her a few questions.

If you don't like the character, then you don't like the character, but personally I'm excited about the new Superman movie. And while the superhero origin movies are getting a bit overdone, they didn't really have a choice here---the last movie, where they tried to not only emulate but continue on the awful Christopher Reeve Superman movies, was flat out terrible. This franchise badly needed to be rebooted and purged of any residual 1970's campiness.

but the last maybe 5 of the first season and the first 5 of the next are great

it is no breaking bad or game of thrones but it is pretty good

Man, season 1 was disappointing from start to end.

(Spoiler for anyone planning on watching the series)

The last episode sums up the season perfectly: Almost nothing actually happens.

The highlight of the series was mid-way through ep 3 when the daughter BLASTED her mom in the drive-through for sleeping with the other marine dude. That was one of those "Whooooaaaaa" moments.

Really?

I didn't get the impression that Lin's films have taken themselves too seriously at all. The last two films have been very fun to watch and have really revitalized the franchise.

They've done a good job at making you invest yourself in the characters because of the cast's continuity from each film as well. It gives the audience a greater emotional stake while watching.

There isn't much to the F&F characters. The dialoghue is a little sappy and heavy for a film that's supposed to be fun.

:lol

I remarked to my buddies that the runway must have been 60 miles long given how long that scene took to unfold. I think the action sequences were choreographed much better in the fifth one.

Agreed with you on the lack of necessity for that prison sequence. Didn't see much point in that and it didn't really further the plot at all.

That post-credits scene in Tokyo that connected the third movie to the sixth and (upcoming) seventh with Jason Statham was so bad it was good. Can't wait for the mind junk food that will be the next installment.

Statham is going to be so badass.

I don't get HBO, but I downloaded "Behind the Candelabra" about Liberace's life. Too bad they couldn't get a distributor for it to release it in N.American theaters. Michael Douglas would be the frontrunner for the Oscar. And kudos to Matt Damon, he's a big star, and did not have to do that kind of role. He's great as well.

I knew a little about him, but he died when I was very young. What an insane story it is. The performances are better than the film itself, but worth checking out. What a train wreck Liberace was.

There is lines at the beginning of the film by Damon/Bakula about how people could watch such a gay show and enjoy it and Bakula says they don't know it's gay.

In those days, we weren't exposed to flaming homosexuals and the lifestyle like we are today. Everybody hid their homosexuality. No entertainer today could get away with that. People would laugh in his face talking about how horny he is for women while acting like that.

Big mistake with part 7, they're rushing it into production so it can be released next summer, and Justin Lin didn't like that. He's walked away from it and they've replsaced him with James Wan, who made the Saw films and Insidious. He's never done a big budget action film. There's no way he can pull off what Lin does with the action scenes.

There's something about him I really don't like or that rubs me the wrong way. I can't explain it, but I've never really liked in him anything besides Goon.

For example, I thought his roles in Defiance and The Hurricane felt awkward and forced. Maybe I just don't like the guy though for whatever reason, but I've never found him to be a good actor.

James Gandolfini, who gained fame playing a memorable mafia boss on HBO's "The Sopranos" by giving the role a contemporary twist of visiting a therapist for middle-age anxieties, died after suffering a possible heart attack in Italy, an HBO spokeswoman and the actor's managers said Wednesday.

He was 51.

Gandolfini was on holiday in Rome, said Mara Mikialian, HBO's vice president for program publicity.

You punched this person in the throat I hope? We really didn't need any more drawn out origins stories. I liked the wrinkle they threw in, showing Jor-el and the krypton backstory...but we really didn't need to see much of the smallville stuff, it's all been done before. Every bit of the origins material they touched in this flick was with the expressed purpose of building the emotional journey of the character, that they did it in flashbacks at appropriate plot points instead of it being it's own act was perfect as well, helped the story flow a lot better than most origins stories are forced to.

Poor Faye Dunaway as Selena the witch. "Power of shadow....DESTROY HER!!!!!!"

Poor Peter O'Toole as Zoltar, embarrassing role for him but we get our first real look at inside the phantom zone.

Though I do think the new Man of Steel movie could give way to a Super girl introduction. Since they had colonies on out posts. That is essentially what the 1984 Supergirl movie was showing (a krypton colony), though it had no link to the superman movies.

I honestly didn't mind Spacey as Luthor. I love Spacey as an actor.

If you look at what Returns was all about, it essentially picked up 5 years after Superman 2 left off (though 26 years later for all of us).Bryan Singer cast Brandon Routh because he looked like Chris Reeve. And he truly did on certain angles. Luther was in prison again. Spacey played Luthor as hell bent on crippling Superman out of revenge and knew exactly how to do it since the first two Superman movies he knew where his hideout was etc etc etc.

The part when he stabs Superman with the kyptonyte knife is really cool to me. Movie itself was not good but that part was good.

Superman has never been hurt like that before.

"Now fly!" then Spacey breaks off the kryptonite knife in Supermans back. That was pretty epic. Sadly, the movie was poorly executed and planned.

Superman has never been beaten up this way. It is almost disturbing. I really liked the Lex Luthor parts of Superman Returns and the way Spacey played him. He is now very bitter and angry that Superman has foiled him twice before and put him in jail. No more games, he wants revenge.

This scene would have been truly epic if when Superman is standing on the edge of the cliff, Spacey just boots him off.

Imo, they need to do everything they can to avoid Luther as a core villain in any of this story arc they're going to develop, and they need to avoid kryptonite.

Why? They've done a really good job so far setting this Superman up as vulnerable (which is absolutely essential for an audience to actually connect with a character)....the best way to ruin that would be to inject Luthor in as the core villain in the next movie...so, my dude is invulnerable, but we're supposed to believe that a really smart guy can beat him because he's evil? There's also no real way to introduce kryptonite into the storyline that wouldn't be a farce either.

This Superman arc needs Doomsday, or Darkseid. No idea how to introduce either DC universe character into this though, without them doing a marvelesque tie in through other DC universe characters (hey, maybe that would make a Green Lantern sequel useful.....)

Yeah, and Marvel laid the blueprint on how to make it happen. DC just has to figure out which characters to roll out, and the overall story arc they're going to use. The major problem they're going to have is Batman...who is the next bat? Bale is out apparently and done with the character. They should probably scrap the Ryan Reynolds GL and start over.

I find Marvel's characters a lot more compelling than any of DC's aside from the bat, so the characters other than Superman & Batman, are going to have a hard time carrying their own feature length films. Though, a lot of people thought the same about Thor.

Did you notice the LexCorp truck during the fight scenes. Or the reference to Star City (Green Arrow) in Man of Steel?

I can see Lex being slowly introduced in the next film but not as the main villain. I can see after another Superman vs ????? fight dominating the movie but as a sub plot the government turns to Lexcorp for weapons to take down people of Supermans kind including the man of steel himself. Lex discovers kryptonite and that is the cliff hanger. He has the weapons and means to take out Superman.

Lex Luthor is Supermans Joker. That story has to be told. Just not right away. They can build it up.

Even if in the next movie they have LexCorp as a military weapon supply company. So essentially Lex is in support of the military and superman to start.

There is money to be made in another lex vs superman fight.

I think it's been overdone to this point. The only way it's been made even semi fresh in the DC universe is by turning Lex Luthor into borderline superhuman his damn self. Lex has gone from an evil genius in his 50's to a muscle bound evil genius of undetermined age with technology that would make Tony Stark blush.

The race to keep him relevant against the most powerful superhero ever created has turned the character into a farce. I'm cool with Lex being a power behind the throne type, but that's a poor central villain imo. If they're going to use him, it has to be across a multiple movie story arc and in the background like a moriarty type character.

I disagree on all 3 to be honest. Captain America was the weakest of the 3, but decent enough as a stand alone popcorn flick (that had to get the origins story out of the way and lay the groundwork for the Avengers storyline) but the Edward Norton Hulk flick was very, very solid & Thor was a pleasant surprise.

I never said make him a central villain. In fact, I like having him as a king pin who finds others to do his dirty work for him.

However, I disagree that he is overplayed. I remember the same things being said about Joker.

They need to freshen him up but a compelling movie can be made with lex luthor. I just see another villain being involved combined with him.

It took a legendary, absolutely legendary performance, that made everyone forget every other Joker ever done to not ruin that. There's also significant differences here...Batman is human, vulnerable. Superman is not. The only way to make Luthor a relevant threat to Superman is to introduce tired ass old kryptonite into it when there are other, better threats to Superman in the DC universe.

Oh, I'm sure they'll go to it. I'm just saying that short of an extremely well done performance by whomever is casted, it's going to be a mistake that will undo some of what they did in Man of Steel. Introducing kryptonite (out of ****ing nowhere) to make Luthor a legitimate threat would be silly at this point when there are so many directions to go with this character that can put him into dangers faced in the DC universe (that are far, far more dangerous than Lex Luthor...Darkseid & Doomsday are the 2 biggest threats faced by Superman in the comics, Luthor had to be rebooted hard to remain even remotely relevant)

I agree.

I totally see Luthor as a secondary character in the next movie, an introduction. The way Nolan operates, he will have something up his sleave for Lex. I am not worried.

I could see Brainiac using Luthor as a vessel.

Lex will always be around and a thorn in Supermans side but he wont be the main threat. He'll create situations for Superman. That is the way they should do it. Never Luthor vs Superman, rather Luther's plot brings in another villain while he operates behind the scenes.

Brainiac would be interesting....but he's a fairly campy threat imo.

Where they should take the story arc is that Luthor is able to secure kryptonian DNA (Zod's, superman's from the vial that was drawn on Zod's ship, etc) and Doomsday is a genetics experiment (Luthor is obsessed with cloning a compliant superman *or army of supermen* in the comics) gone wrong. They would just need a bridging villain for the 2nd movie as it would be used to set up a modified Death of Superman arc.

I don't know if I'd say "over exposed". All of the tie ins to the Avengers flick have done well at the box office. Captain America was generally well received critically but it is what it is. Hollywood popcorn action flick. There isn't the character depth there to do a Dark Knight styled human drama with subtle (and not so subtle) character development and emotional undertone.

I think you have to judge a comic book movie against the material it's developed from. There just isn't a whole lot to the character, but he's absolutely essential in the Marvel Universe, so it was necessary.

Tony Stark’s famous closing line to the very first Iron Man film takes on new life today as Marvel is pleased to announce the signing of Robert Downey, Jr. to reprise the role of the “billionaire, genius, playboy, philanthropist.”

Under the two-picture agreement, Downey will star as Tony Stark/Iron Man in “Marvel’s The Avengers 2” and “Marvel’s The Avengers 3.” Downey is represented at CAA by Bryan Lourd, Jim Toth and Matt Leaf and by his attorneys Tom Hansen and Stewart Brookman of the firm Hansen Jacobson.

Downey, Jr.’s last two Marvel films, 2012’s “Marvel’s The Avengers” and this year’s “Iron Man 3,” rank as two of the top five grossing films of all time, collectively earning over $2.7 billion worldwide to date.
