But What Do I Know?
Normally I would be putting up my reviews, but in light of a conversation I had today with one of my co-workers, it has been made clear to me, that I do not know what I am talking about.
I have not been to see the new Superman vs Batman movie. I have heard good things about Wonder Woman, but it frankly seems a bit dark and depressing for me, although I will probably watch it when it comes out on HBO or something. This was exactly the opinion I expressed when pressed by my co-worker as to what I thought of the movie. I then had to listen to a twenty minute speech about what a great movie it was, and how short-sighted my opinion was, and for heaven's sake, wasn't Batman kickass?
Whenever I tried to explain my point of view, that I thought the producer seemed to be going for a "Dark Knight Returns" type of vibe, I was shot down. When I said that Christopher Reeve was still my favorite cinematic version of Superman, I was scoffed at. When I mentioned that I really liked the Curt Swan version of Superman, there was dead silence because he had never actually ever read a comic book.
Oh, did mention my co-worker was a man? He thinks it is just adorable that I trot off every Wednesday to buy the books, but it isn't as though I actually KNOW anything about the characters or their continuity or boring stuff like that because... Explosions are cool!
So now I am feeling very very... cranky.
