Default Re: Tim Boyle's The Phantom

well, i mean, certain movies should be influenced by the quality of other films, not just the visuals. Also, what worked for a certain film, may not work for another.

I disagree that any post-Dark Knight comic book movie should be dark. I disagree that every movie should be grounded in 'realism' (and the Nolan Batman series are still fantasy movies, mind you). Rather, other directors shoudl pay attention to the high standards Nolan brought to mainstream Hollywood. If other filmmakers can follow suit without cutting and pasting his style, then that's a great thing. I think a guy like McG is getting it, judging from his work on Terminator Salvation.

I also think Jon favareau gets it, along with (hopefully) Zach Synder.
