what kind of movie will this be?
 
lets keep it real. there have been MANY space epics throughout the past 20 years.

and i'm just curious about what kind of movie will this be? and how will the avengers fit in?

i think this film will be something like that show from the early 90's called space rangers.

remember that show? a group of misfits that are like the space police but they are always outnumbered and outgunned and face impossible odds.

any thoughts? i mean how will they make things different.

Space Opera MCU style. I don't expect any deviations in tone from the movies we've already scene Feige and co produce.

honestly the star-lord and drax the destroyer are the cool looking guardians. i wonder how they'll do groot the tree and the racoon and make them cool looking.


because now they must address the idea of alien races and all that and make it realistic and believable. that will not be easy.

i hope the aliens have their own languages. if we get aliens that all speak perfect american english...i will be sad.

because this all started out with iron man and the realisim aspect.

Rocket Raccoon is the coolest Guardian, eat your heart out Star Lord.

It will be very twisted. The "heroes" will be pretty shoddy themselves, Thanos will play the part of an ally for most of the film, the Nova Corps will be after them, and their real ally will be helping the Universal Church of Truth as Magus. Given this, the movie will have a very twisted sense of humor to go along with all that craziness.

That's just my speculation though.

I'm hoping it'll be exactly how Gunn described it:

"majestic, beautiful, and unique"

Flash Gordon and Buck Rogers (the originals) were the earliest and most iconic versions of the term "space opera." Basically sci-fi that's less concerned with the nuts and bolts and more concerned with classic storytelling. Swashbucklers in space. Star Wars, especially Ep. IV (the "first" Star Wars movie), was very much space opera, and meant to be in the same vein as Flash and Buck. The 2008 GOTG comic series definitely draws on that old-fashioned view of the space opera as well, and tries to evoke the '30s pulp era. (Unlike this year's GOTG, which tries to evoke/copy Mass Effect.)

Play Mass Effect or watch Star Trek/Battlestar Galactica. Those are textbook space operas.

*Original* Trek and Galactica, yes.
The more modern spinoffs gear more towards hard sf than space opera.

Oh yeah, I was talking about TOS not TNG, DS9 or Voyager...I'd say the latest Galactica is more space opera than hard sci-fi or at the very least is a happy medium.

Just read this...ehhh I think it's a little too early to really make that claim. That said, I'd have to take issue with the idea that ME as that much different from what Flash Gordon tried to convey in the first place.

Eh, I'm kinda fifty-fifty on whether ME should be considered space opera or hard sf. Personally, I lean towards the latter, because it reminds me more of Arthur C. Clarke and Larry Niven and Asimov than Heinlein or Doc Smith or the pulps. I think of ME as more like TNG than Star Wars.

Mr. Dent 03-04-2013 10:19 AM

Re: what kind of movie will this be?
 
I think of ME as being more similar to TOS than anything else honestly. It really doesn't get into the specifics of how the fictional science works unless you read some of the data logs and focuses more on the adventure and story. It is indeed more like TNG than SW but I don't think focusing on the mechanics of an alien civilization necessarily disqualifies it from being largely space opera...tbh if you ignore some of the side conversations and missions in ME and just stick straight with the main storyline then it is more or less a straight up space opera.

Upon more thought I think GotG will be a bit of a hybrid between SW and ST while being its own thing. It will have a similar type of adventure-esque feel as SW but will include more of the team dynamics included in ST. And the tone will be a bit different from both while leaning more towards SW.
