Heck, Nolan's Batman is the exception that proves the rule. Great movies, but far more Nolan than Batman. Nolan's Batman is an overly serious interpretation with a complete lack of self awareness that would fall completely to pieces as soon as something as overtly ridiculous as space aliens, magic rings, or magic powers were introduced to it. Great in their own box, but utterly unable to take part in Avengers style feel good genre mashups.GeorgW said:Chistopher Nolan's Batman is the exception, not the rule.
Its own sequels most notable among them.Falseprophet said:But it also led to a lot of stylish action movies with gravity-defying bullet-time effects with no substance.
You know he was playing devil's advocate, right? Despite saying you doubt it will have many negatives, you seem awfully cynical lol.DemBones said:snip
My point was that executives will use Scott Pilgrim as a reason to not listen to fans because it was a failure. Scott Pilgrim had massive Comic-Con marketing and was made in a way that geared almost exclusively to fans and comics/gamer geeks. The filmmakers listened to the fans, and the film bombed. For every good example of a concept working, there is an example of it failing.MrLumber said:You know he was playing devil's advocate, right?

Also, no executive will ever use Scott Pilgrim as a palette for success, it was a box office failure.

I would argue that there wasn't regenerating health because there was a story reason, the story reasoning was made because they wanted to have regenerating heatlh, to speed up the pace of FPS games for consoles. I would imagine its also why they limited the weapons to two instead of nine or more, and why grenade tossing became its own button instead of a selectable weapon.Falseprophet said:Much like Halo introduced regenerating health to FPSes because there was a good story reason for it, while modern military shooters copy it even though it makes no sense.
