Rant: Batman V Superman

Well, I may be a week late to the party, but that won't stop me from writing about this terrible movie. That's right, I said it. This movie is trash and there is no debate. Of course, you can enjoy this movie and like it, that's your opinion, but you can't say that this movie was 'good' in any way. Why have I decided to write about this movie? Well, I was on Instagram the other day and there were way too many comments on various posts actually DEFENDING this piece of shit. I got into a number of arguments with random people because they were just trashing on other people and the critics for disliking the movie. I cannot believe how hard headed some blind fanboys are. To the point where I knew I clearly won the argument because their next replies were always something like: "You're just a dumb fag who hates on movies go kill yourself". I'm not exaggerating. These people need to be stopped. They need to open their eyes and see that this movie was not good AT ALL. Some more examples of comments I found on Instagram were like "This movie is perfection" or "Everyone who hates this movie is stupid and wouldn't understand the dark theme because they only like light-hearted Marvel movies". What exactly was wrong with this movie? Everything. I mean the fight scenes were pretty cool, but that's about it. It was just an overall mess. The story jumped around everywhere and couldn't focus on anything. Let's start with the first thing wrong, the title. It shouldn't even be called Batman V Superman as that's not even the main conflict of the movie. It should just plainly and simply be called "Dawn of Justice". Batman barely fought Superman and if you think that those 10 minutes of them fighting is worth the title of the movie, think about this: in the Avengers, Iron Man and Thor fought at the beginning but you don't see the movie being called "Iron Man V Thor". Another problem with this movie was the terrible writing. I mean come on. Their moms have the same name and that's why they stop fighting and Batman doesn't kill him? Speaking of killing, what the actual fuck was up with Batman killing people? That goes against the very point of the Batman character. Now, when i brought this point up, people say that Batman killed people in the dark knight returns and in this movie he's fed up of being batman. Firstly, he doesn't actually kill people in the dark knight returns, let's get that fact straight before anyone else decides to throw it around. Secondly, this is stupid as Batman himself once said "If you kill a killer, the number of killers in the world remains the same". This is what Batman stands for. Now if they want to make future movies with this type of batman, what's stopping him from killing the joker? Or any other villain he catches? He won't be morally obligated to not kill them so he will just become a murderer. Aside from killing people, Batman seemed like a total douche. He just attacked Superman even after Superman said that it was serious and they needed to talk. Anyway moving on. Lois was another problem like she was just annoying as fuck. And what was up with that silver bullet shit? It barely played a part in the movie yet they focused so much time on it. Another thing wrong with the writing. How can people be so dumb in the movie to believe that Superman killed all those people in that village when they were killed with guns? Last I checked, Superman doesn't use guns. Don't even get me started on Doomsday. He was just terrible. I'm a fan of the whole "Death of Superman" comic series and they wasted that whole story on this movie. Speaking of stories, this was just one big clusterfuck of a movie. There were way too many stories they were trying to tell. The Death of Superman, Batman fighting Superman and the beginning of the justice league. The Death of Superman should've got it's own movie or movie series with a proper introduction to Doomsday because Doomsday was just completely fucked up. There are so many more problems with this movie but I'll leave it at this for now. Before you accuse me of anything, like my fellow Instagram commentors, I did watch the movie BEFORE I looked at any reviews because I didn't want it to influence me. Don't get me wrong, the movie was entertaining for me, but that's all it was. Now I'd like to address some of the comments I saw on Instagram because I've seen these comments more than once and I'm sure more people think like this. "You can't tell me I'm wrong because it's my opinion that this movie was good". This is one of the rebuttals I got the other day. It's wrong because i never said his opinion was wrong. If a movie has terrible writing and plot holes everywhere, it is a fact that that movie is a bad movie. I'm not saying that you can't like the movie, because that's your opinion and I can't make you hate something, I'm saying that objectively, that movie is bad. Another thing I see often is "This movie was too deep for you and you wouldn't get it, that's why you don't like it. It's not a Marvel movie for kids". I'd just like to say I've seen movies with deep meanings and themes and BvS wasn't that deep of a movie. If anything it was shallow. Marvel movies aren't all that fun and kid friendly all the time either. Just because this movie was a bit deeper than other movies and you 'understood' the theme (even though they had to state it in the movie itself) doesn't make you all high and mighty. Like I said, I've seen 'deep' movies and usually, they don't literally state the theme, like BvS did, in the actual movie. Finally, the other most common comment is "If you were a real fan, then you would've liked this movie". Uh, no. If you're a comic fan, then this movie is a lie because of how inaccurate it is. Well, let's say they didn't actually want to base it on the comics. Fine. If you're a movie fan, then this movie sucks because it has terrible writing, a terrible plot and plot holes. Just admit it, this movie is bad. That's the main problem with people defending it, they won't admit it. They can like this movie, that's their opinion, but they can't say straight up "This movie was good". If they said "This movie is good in my opinion", then i wouldn't have a problem. But it's just the fact that people say it's good as a fact, but then can't prove how it's good. People even went as far as saying "This is the best movie ever made" or "This is a better Batman than Nolan's Batman". If those two would've had 'in my opinion' at the end, it wouldn't be a problem. But stating that BvS was the greatest movie of all time as a fact is completely incorrect and wrong on so many levels.…...

Beowulf and Superman

...Beowulf &Superman A hero is defined in classical mythology as a man, especially the son of a god and a mortal, who is famous for possessing some extraordinary gift. Beowulf, the title character of an epic poem and Superman, a more modern day hero are both prime examples. Beowulf and Superman exhibit several differences, but they also share some similar qualities. Beowulf possessed great strength that separated him from other men. Being able to use a sword that no ordinary man was able to carry gives the feeling that Beowulf is something more than a human being. It makes him special and causes him to stand out from all other men. Fame is something that makes a hero more noted. Beowulf’s popularity had spread all over the world. He never let this go to his head and he never thought that he was better than everyone else because of it. By engaging in this foolish contest, Beowulf nearly got himself killed trying to prove he was better than Brecca. Jealousy is never a good trait, especially for a hero. Revenge is never a trait of a true hero. A hero has no scores to settle. A true hero should fight only to protect others and not out of his own rage. Also, with Beowulf being a human being, he was not invincible. Beowulf didn’t realize this until he fought the dragon. He knew nothing of the dragon, it’s strengths, weaknesses or powers. Beowulf found out what the dragon was capable of and what its powers were. He knew that it could breathe fire, so he got a shield that...

Batman

...Joke Over Batman: The Killing Joke written by Alan Moore, reveals the history behind the Joker’s craziness and shows a very demented side of him. The Joker takes his insanity to the most evil level possible after breaking free from Arkham. It is amazing that after he humiliates Jim Gordon’s daughter, Jim Gordon still believes that he should be dealt with “by the book” (Moore 39). Batman, too, towards the end of the novel, offers a truce to The Joker even after the several death attempts he makes on his life. These two men try to show compassion towards the Joker in spite of his insurmountable crimes but, as Harley Quinn says in “Mad Love”, he is a “psychopathic clown” (“Mad”). The Joker’s evil actions are unjustified and thus he is undeserving of sympathy. Batman, like the Joker experienced a tragedy that turned him into the crime fighter that he is. But unlike the Joker who is already an adult man when his wife dies, Batman is at a sensitive age when he witnesses his parents’ death. The Joker makes a conscious decision to engage in criminal activities for money but the end turns out bitter. The chemical slime the Joker jumps into changes his physical appearance, but has no bearing on his psyche. He prefers to act like a crazed, lunatic and not face reality because for him, “madness is the emergency exit” (Moore 23). Batman does not use his “one bad day” as an excuse to take way innocent lives or to torment the residents of Gotham (Moore 40). Joker spends most of time......

The Best Part of Batman

...The best part of Batman Begins was its ending... and I'm not being sarcastic. As I was watching the last scene of the movie, I wanted to jump out of my seat and cheer when Jim Gordon handed Batman the Joker playing card. It's been a while since I reacted with such glee at the promise of a sequel (usually it's more of, "hay nako, may part two pa yan!"). Yes, the movie was that good. Without question this is the best Batman movie ever made. Finally we have a film adaptation that shows the essence of who Batman is: not a superhero, but an ordinary guy (as ordinary as a billionaire playboy can be) doing extraordinary things in the name of justice. This is what sets Batman apart from all the Supermans and Spidermans out there (and what makes him my favorite comic book hero of all time): he is human, so very human, which makes him, and his fight for right, all the more real. That, and his perennial angst, which I can totally relate to. Haha. I wish I could meet director Chris Nolan so I could shake his hand for rescuing the Batman franchise from its shlock purgatory that was Schumacher-Land. Hats (and cowls) off to underappreciated actor Christian Bale, who filled in the Batsuit quite nicely (and his gravelly Batman voice was spot on!), but more importantly, he gave both Bruce Wayne and Batman true character. And of course I also applaud the excellent supporting cast of acting greats: Liam Neeson shows that he's not just wise old mentor material (the twist at the end......

The Dawn

...Thesis Statement: Conflict plays a major part in the short story “The Dawn” In the short story “The Dawn,” we learn that there is many different kinds of conflict between man and nature, and father and son. While reading, I found that conflict was spread throughout the story. These next few paragraphs will explain the points in the story that I felt showed conflict the most. Right in the beginning the short story, we see our first hint of conflict. The story starts with the line, “Deer, all they are good for is meat, and trophies. That was the first thing I had heard my Dad say when I woke up that cold November day.” We can see right off the bat that there is conflict between man and nature. To the Dad, deer are just good for meat and trophies. Not the beautiful and majestic creatures the son sees them as. This shows conflict between Father and Son and a little be of Man vs Nature. We see more conflict between the boy and his dad just a few lines later when he tells us “My dad and I were never really close, we always tried to separate ourselves from each other whenever we could. Don’t get me wrong, I love him, but I never really liked him.” We can obviously tell that the boy and his father have never been close, and that hunting was supposed to be a way to get them closer together. The next spot where we see conflict in the story, is when the boy is told he has to shoot the deer. Close to the middle of the story, the father and his dad are in the woods hunting, they have...

The Physics of Batman

...Da Na Na Na Na Na Na... BATMAN! December 8th, 2010 THE DARK KNIGHT: 180 DEGREE TRUCK FLIP The seventh highest-grossing film of all time was released in 2008 in which Christopher Nolen directed a masterpiece which was nominated for eight academy awards. In the city of Gotham, the Joker is the most prominent antagonist which must be stopped by Batman in the most recently released movie about the superhero, The Dark Knight. This movie was a sequel to Batman Begins which was released in 2005. This research paper applies a broad range of physics topics to a single scene; namely the different forces in effect in this scene, action and reaction and their effects in collisions, acceleration and its role in assessing the overall plausibility of the scene, as well as different forms of energy illustrated within the scene such as kinetic and potential energy. The particular scene that will be used in order to convey all of the above ideas is just over half way into the movie (1 hour and 18 minutes in). Filmed in downtown Chicago, Batman latches a cable onto the front of a semi truck being driven by the Joker. Batman then rides his bike swerving through numerous light posts. When the cable inevitably runs out and is knotted through numerous light posts as well as other things, the truck has nowhere to go which then causes the cab end of the truck to stop, while the trailer of the truck flips up and over the cab. This scene can be found by searching “Batman truck flip” on......

Dawn

...Disoriented Faith It is psychologically natural for humans to question faith and spirituality after experiencing tragedy and loss. People may doubt or even reject their faith with God whom is depicted in scripture as a source of peace and security in our lives. In Elie Wiesel’s Dawn, Elisha faces a similar spiritual contradiction after barely surviving the holocaust. After all of his family and friends are murdered by the egregious acts of the Nazi’s, Elisha seems to immediately question the logic behind his faith in Judaism and God. Stemming from his upbringing as an Orthodox Jew, his faith does not merely go away, rather, his understanding of God is reinterpreted into a more extreme outlook that acts as his catalyst for change as he transforms into a terrorist. Elisha’s reshaped understanding of God first becomes evident when he is relocated in refuge programs in France. In a camp outside of Normandy, Elisha often spends his time alone, in part because he does not speak French, but he interestingly reveals some important information regarding his faith. For the first time, we see that Elisha is pondering his faith as he looks up at the sky searching for God. Cliché in nature, it is almost as if he is saying “Why, God?” as he searches for the face of a child in the sky, trying to his rationalize experience in the concentration camp. When pressed to discuss this when Catherine, another girl whom he lustfully bonds with after discovering that she also speaks German, Elisha...

Monstrous Dawn of Progress

...The Monstrous Dawn of Progress January 12, 2012 2011-43316 SOSC 1 “The reasonable man adapts himself to the world; the unreasonable one persists in trying to adapt the world to himself. Therefore all progress depends on the unreasonable man.” George Bernard Shaw, Man and Superman (1903) "Maxims for Revolutionists" We all know progress is the idea that the world can become increasingly better in terms of science, technology, modernization, liberty, democracy and quality of life. These term looks forward to an ideal completeness or perfection in respect of quality or condition; -- applied to individuals, communities, or the race; as, social, moral, religious, or political progress. Many say that no man will ever be satisfied and each of us is hungry for change. However, we know that progress is a very subjective terminology. What if our view of progress is to have three full meals a day and hunt more food more than we need? Our natives roamed their lands for ages. They roam an autonomous region which is molded by their own culture and way of living. Their adaptation to these lands is very impressive due to the fact that they have stayed in this place for a long time--thus, it makes them more invincible to the dangers of their natural environment. In contrast with these, we try to colonize our indigenous people and force them to live our own way of living without thinking that they could not handle the fast......

Batman

...One of the eye-popping techno wonders from the latest Batman installment involves the use of cellphones to “see” inside of buildings. When Lucius Fox plants a cellphone in Lau’s office building, the modified phone somehow creates a map of the buildings interior by using a “high frequency pulse” to create an image. Fox tells Bruce that it works just like sonar. Well to be more accurate he should have called it radar because that’s what it is. Sonar is when you reflect sound waves off of objects to determine their location. Radar is when you use electromagnetic radiation usually at microwave frequencies to do the same thing. Since cellphones emit and receive e-m radiation in the radio wave/microwave frequency range (for cellphones the frequencies are usually between about 800 and 2000 MHz) if you tried to use them as imaging devices then that’s radar. There are many different types of radar designed for different purposes including military defense, meteorological applications (the Doppler radar they use to image precipitation), police radar, geologic applications (ground penetrating radar); the list goes on. But, not surprisingly, none is capable of coming close to the level of 3-D resolution and the depth of penetration that Fox’s is able to achieve. The more layers the radiation penetrates the more it is absorbed and scattered. This makes resolving and interpreting the reflected signals extremely challenging. Nevertheless it’s an interesting idea extrapolated from existing......
