I am a long time comic book fan. X-men was always my favorite with Batman a close second and in close running were Superman, Spiderman, Iron Man, The Avengers, Green Arrow, Green Lantern etc. As I have gotten older I have grown to love many more Marvel and DC comics. But some of the movies do NOT do the comics justice. I'd have to say that the X-men trilogy was not nearly as good as it could have been. I LOVE Hugh Jackman as Wolverine, but thats about it. I was so pissed that they decided to go with an alternate universe approach instead of the main universe. Anna Pacquin as Rogue was a HORRIBLE casting choice and I have nothing against her as an actress, she just couldn't embody rogue for me. They didn't even introduce Gambit until they did the Wolverine movie. WTF is that? They just didn't do this excellent comic series justice. I was more impressed with X-Men: First Class. But they still should have used the original 5 X-men instead of a bunch of random characters. Although I did enjoy Banshee getting screen time.
Another one would ahve to be the Spiderman trilogy. First off, you DO NOT cast Kirsten Dunst as Mary Jane Parker. That was another horrible call by the casting director. Tobey McGuire wasn't horrible, but he just wasn't Peter Parker for me. From the moment they casted him, I just wasn't convinced. The story lines weren't all that great either, although, they weren't horrible.
Next I would have to go with Superman returns. Brandon Routh had a good look for superman, but for f*ck's sake...Kate Bosworth as Lois Lane? Really?! I just wans't impressed with this movie at all.
GI Joe: Rise of Cobra. G.I. Joe was a comic before it was a cartoon. They just f*cked up that storyline every which way! The whole backstory for Snake Eyes and Storm Shadow was way off. Scarlett and Snake Eyes had a relationship, Ripcord wasn't even a major character and wtf was going on with Cobra? At least they gave Destro the silver mask at the end, even though it is apparently attached to his face.
Batman Forever/Batman and Robin. UGG. I actually really enjoyed Tim burton's take on Batman/Batman Returns with Michael Keaton. I loved Michelle Pfieffer as catwoman. But the moment Val Kilmer took over Batman and then George Clooney took it from him, they became ridiculously campy and not very entertaining at all. And I really like Val Kilmer as an actor. Nicole Kidman's character was just trying to sex Batman up the entire time. It was tiresome. The acting in Batman and Robin just wasn't up to par. I like Chris O'Donnel, but again, not so sure he was a good choice for Robin and Alicia Silverstone as Batgirl? NO.
So for the most part, these movies weren't that great for me because of a combination of casting/storyline. I could probably name a few more, but I think I'll stop with these. I get that comic movies aren't made to win Oscars, but the writers really need to consider what the fans want. And the majority of the fans that go to see these movies are fans of the comics or hell even the animated tv shows- so write scripts that are going to cater to those fans!
Lady Gaga. sure the songs are catchy, but they don't really say anything. Her antics are just plain annoying. We get it googoo...you are your "own" person, you can put away the meat suits now. Beyonce annoys the crap out of me too. I am not a talyor swift fan either- but at least she seems to put heart into her songs. And Bieber...HELL NO. I'm sure the kid is nice enough, but what will happen to that voice when he finally hits puberty?
IMHO most music today is superficial. it doesn't have any real meaning behind it. Classic rock, oldies and the blues- those bands/songs had meaning and if they didn't they made up for it by making some kick ass music! Music has recently gone down hill in a major way.
