    But what will renowned shitstirrer Armond White think of the movie?
    Blank Check briefly talked about Armond White in an episode and it was fascinating hearing from dudes in the film critic community.

    Like, at one point he was aware of the bit and wrote some genuinely funny and/or fantastic criticism

    But he has crawled up his own ass and is just a crotchety old contrarian asshole and has been for years at this point

    Well, I still think Man of Steel was one of the best superhero movies we've had this century, so I'm thankful we got that one from him. BvS wasn't really good, but I liked it more than most did. They needed more time to flesh out that story, for sure. Wonder Woman was really just good to me. I'll have to see it again, but something just never fully clicked with me there. But it was very "just good."

    Justice League looks like something I have to see just because I've come this far, may as well see what the mess they've made is.

    I always liked that Conan was a thief more than anything. He was stealthy and robbed shit from rich people.

    The Dark Horse comics are really good. They play Conan as a bit of trickster - the muscle-bound thief whose secret power is that he is much smarter than he looks.

    Conan has always been cool because he looks like a big meathead but actually he's a very deep, passionate, and even philosophical person who prefers to get past his problems with sneakiness or cunning, it's just if he can't, he is totally capable of kicking the absolute fuck out of you.

    I liked the original Conan movie, but I think it fixed the idea of the character in the general public's mind as the monosyllabic meathead who killed things good.

    Yeah, but if anyone is going to break with that, it would be HBO.

    I mean, just the thought of them doing something so usually seen as low brow would turn heads. To deliver a smarter, more faithful Conan story could make a huge splash. And, you know, make for an excellent series.

    But then again, people don't pay me to green light projects for a reason. The reason being that I'm dumb and have bad taste.

    Like, now I want to give some kid a million bucks to make Bad Taste 2. It would suck and I'd love it.

    Well, there's also a problem that an HBO or Showtime series of Conan would also contain even more rape and gratuitous lady naked than the books.

    Which, considering the source material, is quite the feat. It'd just be nonstop.

    Like, I wonder if either studio could manage to produce a Conan show without drowning the audience in depictions of sexual assault and near-hardcore fucking for even a single season.

    Armond White matches the opinion of the majority roughly half the time. I don't think he's purely a contrarian, he just comes at movies from odd angles. He tends to focus on political themes rather than quality of the movie. He liked BVS so that makes me think he'd like Justice League, but if it is getting good reviews then maybe he'll dislike it? I'm gonna put my money on liking it.

    I had plans to go see Thor Ragnarok this weekend, but starting Friday my local theater is pretty much dumping everything, including Thor, in favor of devoting the majority of its screens to Justice League.

    Like, it's 98% Justice League, with the remaining screens going to Wonder and The Star, neither of which I have heard of until I looked at the theater's weekend schedule just now.

    It just seems weird to me, because I feel like it's a bit early to pull Thor. Hell, they were still playing Blade Runner 2049 and It as of yesterday.

    Taking a look around, my only option for seeing Thor after Thursday is the single-screen independent theater owned by the city film society -- which isn't bad, just a bit weird.

    The only way this makes a lick of financial sense is if WB is paying them a bunch of money to do it.

    The best Conan adaption would be a heist film where the complication was Giant Snake. Bonus points in that it would be 100 percent faithful to the source material.

    Maybe they're retaliating against Disney's strongarm tactics by pulling their big blockbusters early. But that also comes across as "I'm going to keep hurting myself until you stop being a jerk!".

    Armond White is actually a really good writer, and one of the few film critics I'll actually read out of curiosity of his viewpoint. I wouldn't expect a black, gay, right-wing critic's taste to align with the consensus.

    Despite that, the man is too self aware of his against-the-grain opinions. He often writes defensively and comparatively which sometimes makes him look petty or too aware of his readership.

    One thing about the JL trailers is that it doesn't look like that movie takes place anywhere

    Wonder Woman and Thor 3, for two recent examples, have locations dripping with personality and detail and color and life.

    And the JL trailer looks like it took place in a video game that really lowballed its background artist contracts

    Maybe. But it's not just Thor. They're pulling literally everything except Justice League and the two other smaller movies I mentioned. For reference, this is a Regal-owned, 17-screen theater that typically plays about a dozen different movies on any given day.

    A blockbuster with more studio notes than script (underlined: “Be more Marvel”), Justice League attempts to inject some levity and rock ‘n’ roll into Zack Snyder’s dinosaurian version of the DC Comics-verse; in many cases, it ends up with the worst of multiple worlds. Gone are the artistic pretensions and doofy character motivations of Snyder’s last masturbation fantasy about the caped and cowled, Batman V Superman: The Dawn Of Justice—an overblown superhero movie whose excesses included no less than five dream sequences and an extended homage to Eyes Wide Shut. But the “new and improved” model looks claustrophobically like an over-priced TV pilot, and not in a good way. Say what you want about the tenets of brooding, art-school-fascist superhero worship, but at least it’s an ethos.

    Ignatiy Vishnevetsky is pretty good.
