I hated the book, the people in the book and having to read it. There is nothing you could do that would drag my ass into a movie theater for this. This is on the same level as Pride and Prejudice.
It wasn't required high school reading for me. Different places have different education systems so, there's that...RJ Dalton said:You also can't spoiler something that's required high school reading. Anybody who doesn't know the story of The Great Gatsby by this point has no excuse not to.
I have hope for Man of Steel as, Snyder seems a genuine visionary with something to show us. But, "bleh" is what I fear. Movie Bob voiced the fear that the new Star Wars and Star Trek will not be bad. They just won't be great. They'll be safe and technically proficient and we will walk out of theaters shrugging instead of having our imaginations set on fire. I "liked" the Amazing Spiderman... less so upon a 2nd viewing. Safe, samey. I'm hearing the new Star Trek will be more of the same. The next Spiderman has a lot of ground to make up. I think I'll like it again. That's not enough. I'm better off staying home watching "Game of Thrones" on TV.Safaia said:Unless there is a giant blue dick and Vietnamese abortions in this one too I'm not interested.Gorfias said:Wrong. That's Dr. Manhattan from "The Watchmen". Kidding!Kmadden2004 said:One that's going to end up looking something like this, I'd imagine;SomebodyNowhere said:I know it is unreasonable to expect a character like electro to look exactly like he does in the comics, but what kind of redesign is that.
But, it has been done before. Man, I'm going to miss the green and yellow outfit.
On topic: the English major in me wants to see this but bleh.
It's not uncommon to have to read Canterbury Tales. It's not quite as high up as To Kill A Mockingbird and you'll probably read it in one of the higher grades, but it still ranks up there.cwmdulais said:about the whole "dosnt need a spoiler alert because its so old and everyone should know it" it does require a spoiler alert for some like me, as it may be required reading for yank's its not all to well known over here in the UK (most people know OF it, but beyond that not all that many have actually read it or have heard the story)
EDIT: I wonder how many Americans have read anything by Chaucer?
Your last point being very important, because A Storm of Swords have been out for 13 years, but I would bet my bottom dollar that if you spoil that to anyone they are gonna be mad.Sean951 said:It's not just common, it's been required reading for most high schoolers going back decades with 5 previous movie versions. The statute of spoilers goes back 20-30 years, and at that point I feel it's fair game. Exceptions being when this is the first movie/TV adaption from an old book.Hindkjaer said:I'm rather pissed that just because it's common in American Litteratur, it is considered okay to spoil it. Grantet this wasn't like "Vader-Luke" proportioned spoiler, but still. It seems a little arrogant.
