Most of the DC characters are kind of dull. We recently watched Aquaman. It looked like it should have been epic, but it wasn't. It was okay, enjoyable, but not epic or moving. In fact, there was a lot of bad acting.
I just watched a Swedish/American, made in Hungary film called "Midsomer". It's a horror in the style of The Wicker Man, I guess. Very creepy, while being theatrically lit as in almost permanent over-bright sunshine. Well worth checking out if you like a good horror movie.
Yesterday I watched Suicide Squad - which was a hell of a lot better than I'd been led to believe. It was very comic-book like in its appearance and story-line, if that makes sense?
I also recently watched "Joker". This was an incredible film and I can well understand the Oscars it won. Phoenix is outstanding in the role.
Just watched Birds of Prey it was quite funny in parts with Harley Quinn, good fight scenes and music score, and a sequel. Gotham City Sirens to come.
And!!! Exclusive: With the coronavirus socking it to the Asian box office, Deadline has learned that MGM, Eon and Universal are postponing the next James Bond movie, No Time to Die from its UK and international release date of April 2 and its U.S. Easter weekend global day-and-date of April 10, and moving the 25th 007 movie to Nov. 25, the Wednesday before Thanksgiving.
I think I know why Superman is so dull: no inner conflict.
Superman does good out of a sense of public service - and that's it. Batman, on the other hand, is conflicted between his sense of duty to Gotham and his desire to avenge his parents.
Batman, too, frequently faces instances of gray-and-gray morality. Superman doesn't: he's the do-gooder, and his job is to vanquish the evil-doers. End of story.
Gray-and-gray morality is also why a film like Silence of the Lambs - the original - is so good. Can Clarice work with one sociopath to stop another? And she can only stop him at the cost of letting Hannibal Lecter escape. There are no "good endings".
