Sick of Superheroes

Here's a totally non-spiritual topic...rant, really. Am I the only person in America sick to death of superhero movies? They're loud, bloated, poorly written (almost zero dialogue), violent, and manipulative. And, not only that, some of them (the awful Man of Steel, for example) mess with the mythology of the characters!

Don't Bother Me

As Much Money As I Give Them They Might As Well Be Free

 

Don't Watch Them

For Beloved Sister I Agree They Might As Well Be Phlegm

Don't worry, they're not done, yet.  They still have Wonder Woman and Aquaman movies to make.   After that they have to make a movie based on the cartoon "The Justice League of America /Superfriends."   Oh and don't forget about  Shazam.

 

So...

All that superhero wave is just a new spin on old demigod lie. Same old lie that people can better themselves to the point of becoming “gods”. Alter ourselves genetically, merge with machines, download ourselves into computers…. So many actually believe that! Nothing more that transhumanism in fancy Hollywood wrapper.

Agreed. The movies you mention are another reason I never bothered buying a TV when I moved out of the furnished place I was at. I don't miss the expensive theaters either, although I would dishonest if I said there aren't a few shows that I missed at first.

i have mixed feelings about this movies.

 

The X-men - they really killed the characters (that is, the movie characters were nothing like the comic characters)

 

Batman & Superman - I'm used to Hollywood having artistic license with the story lines. But at least the last 2 reboots were better than what were before.

 

Iron Man - The first was fun entertainment, 2 was decent, but 3 was a rather dark. R.D, Jr. was a great actor for the character, though.

 

Captain America - Mindless fun entertainment

 

Avengers - Mindless fun entertainment

 

Thor - Mindless fun entertainment. I appreciated how they made the Azguardians to be advanced aliens from another dimension. (I haven't seen the 2nd movie though)

 

I haven't seen the latest Spiderman reboots.

 

 

I watched the trailer for the next Capt. America. It seems like it's going the way of Iron Man, from mindless fun entertainment to a dark theme. Bummer.

If you have not seen these yet, you might enjoy them.

 

Go to YouTube and type "everything wrong with" - It's produce by CinemaSins, and it's a whole series cutting up the movies (factual errors, unrealistic execution of events, production errors, etc.) It's hysterical! Sometimes as an epilog, they will show scenes from the movie with soundtracks from other movies - also very funny.

 

After you've seen "everything wrong with [a certain movie]", then type in "how [a certain movie] should have ended". Also hysterical.

Interesting, their first Muslim superhero is a female teenager, and she doesn't have her hair covered. An odd way to gain popularity with the male-dominated fundamentalist Muslim world.

I never cared for any super hero stuff  :(

 

I only have one Hero and He's my Lord - the God Almighty!  :)

This past weekend, we got a couple of real life superheros in arizona. A 2 yr old girl fell into a septic tank. Two men jumped in after her. When they got her to the surface she wasnt breathing but was revived and is recovering in a hospital. One of those two men was just released from prison.

quite the contrary, I love superhero movies. My favorite, are the newest batman movies (batman begins, the dark knight, and the dark knight rises) I find those particularly good, because I think they show mankinds ability to choose right from wrong, even under difficult circumstances. They do have a strong plotline, and I really appreciate the clear line between good and evil (unlike so many other movies out of hollywood these days) I also enjoy Thor and iron man but not as much as the batman trilogy. I didn't mind the latest 2 superman movies, but they werent exceptional. I enjoyed the first 3 spiderman movies, for much the same reason as the batman movies-good plot, clear lines between good and evil, and shows peoples ability to choose right from wrong. I didn't much care for the newest, but I wouldn't call it bad.

Why, Why, Why???? Why do they always leave batman tied up to die and then leave before he is dead????  He always finds a way out just before the dynamite blows him sky high.   Are they not able to figure that out after all this time?  :lightbulb2:

it took, and would take again, some time to find the conservative biblical webpages showing how damaging telvisionMedia has been to american morals.  remember bad company corrupts good morals (it is written in the BIBLE somewhere's),

and boollywood sure ain't in the direction of good character.....  nor hardly ever honoring or even recognizing God and His Word, nor His Methods/ Ways.

People there just movies. I won't go out of my way to see a superhero movie, I like movies that are historically accurate to the era that they are portraying.

As long as the fossils are historically accurate.  :24:

Since someone has nothing better to do with his time then attempt to resurrect old threads, might as well have some fun with it, so let me post a selfie of me at work:
