Default Re: How long before the fan community turns on the Nolan films?

Now, we've seen it happen time and again. When the new comes along, fans not only turn on the old, a majority at some point comes to the consensus they NEVER liked the old toys and always hated them. We saw this with Burton when Nolan came along. We saw this with Raimi when Webb came along. We saw this with Singer when Vaughn came along. And if you just scroll down to the Superman boards you can see it right now starting to trinkle out with Donner now that Snyder/Nolan have come along.

So, I'll be optimistic and say that it won't be a majority until the week of a reboot and/or JL film, but there will be a plurality of discontent by the trailer. And yet the cynic in me says soon as there is an announcement or poster the bandwagon will begin.

So let the voting begin.
It's already happening. Don't you know it's now cool to hate Nolan, especially his Batman movies? The typical post goes like this: "was disappointed in da moviez. Dere were editing problemz, too many characterz and stuffs going on, I wuz lost... Avengerz wuz da bomb.. and so waz spidermanz." Funny thing is those two marvel movies had those problems in spades; not to mention, they lacked any heart (it was your typical, summer block buster CGI-fest, void of emotion, and intelligence). Don't even get me on Spiderman, if you want to talk bad screen-writing; the entire movie felt like a bad joke (Spiderman taking his mask off in front of the public every 10 minutes, or breaking his promise to Gwen's dying father after two days... I can go on and on and on). The really dumb thing is that people don't apply the same criticism to the movies they already love/are invested in, they just want to tear down that new, original, compelling piece of work they're insecure/afraid of.
