Get Ready to Disagree with Me

Comic Booked 07/15/2010 Reviews

Happy Friday everyone – my name’s Walter Nichols, and I’m one of the new guys on the website who’ll be entertaining you with my two cents in the future.

Little bit about me: I’m a film writer from England, and I write reviews and articles for a couple newspapers back home. I’m a massive film fan, obviously; and I also grew up on comic books, with a soft spot for the big guns – X-Men, Superman, Batman, Spider-Man. Another good thing to know about me is that I tend to disagree with most comic book film fans. For instance, I think Batman Begins is just as good a film as The Dark Knight, and I actually think without Heath Ledger’s Joker Dark Knight would be a barely average action flick memorable mostly for a couple good moments, lots of bad acting/growling, and an 11-year-old’s ethical dilemmas (“you either die or live long enough to see yourself become the villain” – seriously?). I think either of Burton’s Batman films are lightyears better than Nolan’s, I think Superman Returns is a fantastic flick, and I can’t understand why HBO hasn’t made shows out of 100 Bullets and Fables yet. I liked Spider-Man 3, and I didn’t like Iron Man. Watchmen is one of the worst comic book movies ever, I don’t really give a shit about the Avengers movie, I hate 3D, and I’ll bet you $100 right now that Scott Pilgrim‘s gonna be the best film of the summer. Oh, and I think Kick-Ass is mind-bendingly stupid.

I guess what I’m saying is – get ready to disagree with me.

    "Another good thing to know about me is that I tend to disagree with most comic book film fans. For instance, I think Batman Begins is just as good a film as The Dark Knight"

    -I think Batman Begins is *better.*

    "I think either of Burton’s Batman films are light years better than Nolan’s"

    -Fuck yeah.

    "I think Superman Returns is a fantastic flick"

    -Fuck no.

    "I liked Spider-Man 3"

    -I hated it from credits to credits.

    "and I didn’t like Iron Man."

    -Liked the first one, second one was ball twistingly stupid.

    "Watchmen is one of the worst comic book movies ever"

    -Couldn't agree more.

    "I don’t really give a shit about the Avengers movie"

    -Eh, I have a wait-and-see attitude on that one. I don't like the currents…that's normally a bad sign.

    "I hate 3D"

    -I'm not a huge fan, it gives me a headache after a while.

    "Oh, and I think Kick-Ass is mind-bendingly stupid."

    -I didn't think it was stupid…just twisted.

    "I guess what I’m saying is – get ready to disagree with me."

    -Hah! Welcome to *my* world. :)

    I'm right there with you about the Watchmen movie. I saw the movie first, and then read the comic and realized that some things in the comic you just couldn't translate onto the film no matter how hard you tried. Somewhere in the translation it lost that spark that made those 12 issues something special.

    I think that ultimately there is something wrong with me…i can't find someone who does like the Watchmen movie. I love it!

    Must be some emotional tie to being on deployment and seeing it in Dubai while I was missing my family. Hell, i don't know. I loved it from start to finish though. oops!
