    Nostalgia itself is the problem.

    The 90's were pretty crap
    But not much worse than the 00's

    90s nostalgia is really going to be the worst in a couple years. You know how we're all idiots as kids and like the suckiest things?

    Going to be? Have you not been on the Internet lately? We're already swimming in 90s nostalgia bullshit from other people in their late 20s and early/mid 30s who are in a position to do things and influence the web, and they have been jacking it to the 90s hard for a couple years now at least.

    We're early in the wave still. The vanguard is here, but not the main force.

    It's going to get worse before it gets better, is what I'm getting at.

    Everything can be worse or better than before.

    The joke about Portland being where the 90s never ended actually made me appreciate the 2000s more.


    ANYWAY

    Emily VanCamp reminds me of Holland Taylor, which seems odd. Definitely not the first person who would immediate come to mind in casting Sharon Carter. Though I can't really think of anyone else who could or couldn't play her. Sharon just doesn't strike me as distinct enough.

    she gets straight up cold blooded and chilling in revenge.

    I think 1920s nostalgia would be pretty tight.

    Except for all the -ism problems.

    Earth-173821, where everyone huffs paint and all drinking water is Absinthe and all they have to eat is peyote.

    Not going to lie but Earth-173821 sounds pretty awesome.

    I'd go there for vacation.

    that franchise isn't nostalgia.

    the first movie is straight up action film-making from the eighties with all the flaws more than visible.

    the second movie is just a bunch of dudes bullshitting.

    nostalgia might rope you in, but the movies do not rely on it.

    They're doing a reality warp thingy in the comic storyline, I'm hoping they'll make a few changes to bring the status quo closer to what the show is doing. The animated version of the Red Lanterns are much more interesting than the current comic versions.

    Really, I've given up the idea DC is able to tell the cruft from the good stuff when looking at adaptations.

    Might as well hang a note over editorial saying Abandon All Hope Ye Who Enter here.

    DC does outstanding adaptions.
    It's just that every one of them is animated.

    If you mean the recent slate of direct-to-DVD movies they've done, I've found those to be somewhat mediocre on the whole. Especially the ones adapting classic (or in some cases not-so-classic but recent) comic arcs.

    Here is DC's animated movies list per wikipedia,

    1.1 Superman: Doomsday
    1.2 Justice League: The New Frontier
    1.3 Batman: Gotham Knight
    1.4 Wonder Woman
    1.5 Green Lantern: First Flight
    1.6 Superman/Batman: Public Enemies
    1.7 Justice League: Crisis on Two Earths (the best forever and ever)
    1.8 Batman: Under the Red Hood
    1.9 Superman/Batman: Apocalypse
    1.10 All-Star Superman
    1.11 Green Lantern: Emerald Knights
    1.12 Batman: Year One
    1.13 Justice League: Doom
    1.14 Superman vs. The Elite
    1.15 Batman: The Dark Knight Returns

    I'd say 4 of them are good to great, three are outright bad, the rest are just kind of there, some better than others.

    DC excels in the cartoon department (mostly), but their animated line on the whole would probably be a solid "good." I'm kind of hoping Superman Unbound does something good with the Brainiac story, and the animation style looks nice.

    I loved Crisis on Two Earths, Under the Red Hood, Wonder Woman, Emerald Knights and New Frontier(even if it isn't as good as the comic)

    The only outright bad ones I would say are Apocalypse, First Flight and Public Enemies.

    First Flight started off fine but then it was literally a Dragon Ball Z fight for the climax.

    Which is fine sometimes but not really what I want out of Green Lantern.

    it's probably better than the climax to the ryan reynolds movie though

    Well, these straight to DVD DC animated movies do have a lot of limitations. They have very small budgets, the production time is pretty short, there's executive meddling, some of them aren't based on very good source material, etc. I would say that they're all pretty impressive, even the ones that weren't very good, when you take all those potential problems and constraints into account. Although it would be really nice to see what they can do with a real budget.

    The early ones were really, really impressive. Like the Wonder Woman movie and Earth 2 Crisis on Two Earths.

    Doom had a pretty egregiously stupid set of badguys.

    "Let's go through the trouble of breaking into the Batcave, not allow our minion (or any of our team) to discover Wayne's true identity even though at least one of our members already knows it, steal a bunch of plans to disable the Justice League that we know exists because.. uh.. because we do, and then alter the plans to kill instead of disable. Then we implement the plans and stand back to watch everyone die..

    For about 20 seconds, then we all will go fuck off to celebrate rather than confirm our kills or even that all of our hard work actually paid off. Because we're cartoon villians and are completely stupid."
