Outhousers talk Comics - Week of 9/14/11

By xaraan in Blog on September 19, 2011

New Avengers #16 “Heh, those first 2 pages were basically a big ‘fuck you’ from Bendis to those whiny internet trolls who can’t get over Wolverine and Spider-Man and others being Avengers.” - Punchy “You know what would really be a big “fuck you” to Bendis haters? Actually writing a good Avengers comic.” - Mike Mercury “The whole celebrity interview format that the comic is in sucks.” - Hab “There were parts of this issue I loved and parts that I really didn’t like. I enjoyed seeing Daredevil rescue Squirrel Girl and the Cage baby. The action sequences during thoise portions made this issue. I wasn’t a fan of the oral history of the Avengers parts though.” - Stephen Day “It’s just boring and wordy for the sake of being wordy.” - Frag It “I liked DD and the stuff they had him doing, I liked the idea of the FU to the haters of the new avengers members and all that; but thought it was pretty weak having to break the third wall in order to get the point across” - xaraan Fear Itself #6 “Fraction finally reminded me why i absolyutely loved his writing no less than just a year ago. by FAR the best issue of this event…” - Chap22 “Captain America facing up to Odin was fucking cool, as was Thor getting some new armour and Tony jumping into the molten iron. Lots of the big, widescreen moments you want in a crossover, but also character-driven smaller scenes like Spider-Man’s reunion with Aunt May.” - Punchy “I really enjoyed this issue. Lots of cool moments.” - Frag It “This was by far the best issue of the series. Too bad it took six issues for it to happen.” - DeadFett “This is the “best issue”? … - Amoebas Batwoman #1 “I thought this was a very solid ‘#1’ for Batwoman. Great artwork, the story and new case looks interesting.” - Timbales “…this character that has been around for less than ten years feels like an old friend coming back for another visit. This is a definite keeper to the new 52.” - Starlord “Great comic, I really loved it.” - Royal Nonesuch Daredevil #3 “If you’re not reading it, you should be.” - Starlord Deathstroke #1 “As bad as the new Suicide Squad got, it still managed to stay above Deathstroke.” - fieldy snuts “I know I said I was going to read all of them, but do I really have to read this one?” - Mike Mercury “I liked Deathstroke #1. It wasn’t the best DCnU book by a long shot, but it was WAY better than Hawk & Dove.” - Comic-Doctor “I look back at the 15 minutes I spent reading Deathstroke #1 and I weep because I could have better spent that time doing anything other than reading Deathstroke #1.” - Amoebas Readers can also vote on Moment of the Week, Cover of the Week and Comic of the Week for 9/14/11 at the Outhouse.Authors: xaraanRead more http://theouthouseblog.tumblr.com/post/10406941679

Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow

Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow

By David Bird in Blog on September 19, 2011

Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow (2004)Directed by Kerry Conran, Starring Jude Law, Gwyneth Paltrow, and Angelina JolieWell, my plan to use Monday mornings to watch movies, now that my kid is in school on my day off is not going well. It’s a Pro-D day. A Pro-Day? They’ve only been in school two weeks! I had planned on watching my VHS copy of Una Pura Formalità or renting 13 Assassins, but it turns out my video is in Calgary—long story—and 13 Assassins is exactly the sort of movie I had to wait until for kid was in school to watch in the first place.So this week: Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow. Friends have been telling my I’d love this since it first came out seven years ago, but for some reason I never got around to watching it. It is 1939 and the evil Dr. Totenkopf’s robot army is attacking the great cities of the world. Who is he and why is he doing this? With the nation’s military resources stretched thin, Joe Sullivan, the Sky Captain and leader of the Flying Legion, is sent out to find the answers. He is joined by the-intrepid-and-spunky-girl-reporter Polly Perkins and aided by Commander Francesca "Franky" Cook and Dexter “Dex” Dearborn.World of Tomorrow got a lot of press when it was released, because its sets, locales, and many of the extras are entirely computer generated. It uses a sepia-like colouring to mask the dull flatness many human-CGI films seem to have, but there are times when that flatness is there anyway. It even seems to affect the actors in many scenes, who come across too quiet and subdued in a movie that turns the action up to 11 almost from the beginning.The movie draws heavily from 40s Science Fiction and movie serials; so much so that I’ve made a mental note to count the number of big action sequences the next time I see it. Classic serials had twelve to fifteen parts, with a big scene in each one. The action takes us from New York, to the Legion’s base, to Nepal (a nod to Indiana Jones?), to Totenkopf’s island fortress. Along the way he meets up with a character obviously styled after Marvel’s Nick Fury of S.H.I.E.L.D., Jolie’s “Franky” Cook. In spite of being played as an English woman, she is the eye-patch wearing commander of an aerial flying platform. She even uses a jet pack.It’s a fun movie, but never really an engaging one. Conran, who also wrote the script and spent years trying to get it from his computer to the big screen, seems more interested in the process than the characterization. Finishing it I want to dig out my old Fleischer Superman cartoons, but if you’re not into the geeky nostalgia that it invokes, I doubt this movie will interest you much.Originally Pubished at: David Bird
