Infractions? Likely, but I don't remember anyone getting banned other than Cory for making a joke.

Cory wasn't banned. He's still on here. Several people got banned....don't remember their names though.

Oh, I meant as Pro-Ban, not Perma-Ban. That's the only poster I remember getting any type of banning in The Tusi. Darkhunt, I think, was the other Pro-Ban, but that's all who I remember. The Perma-Bans were probably a bunch of newbies.

Nice. I was accidentally at the guy's wedding in Metropolis back in the summer of 2006. That was something.

I'm SO going to hate this place when the red shirt noobs swarm in. You know the ones that are over-abrasive and hypersensitive if you dare criticize the smallest details of Superman or the film.

I'm down with a lounge. I like a little freedom when chatting about Superman.

What music plays in the lounge? I've got an EP/promo coming out later that might fit in well depending on the mood. I've got some loung'y stuff as well. Not necessarily Superman-related, but still.

Out of curiosity… according to the (modern) mythos, how does Wonder Woman get her name? Did she give it to herself and then design her chest emblem (a stylized WW) to reflect this? Classic Wondy had an eagle emblem, so the “logic” of matching the name to a set of initials (which one came first?) wasn’t a problem.

It's an official title given to their chosen Champion.

So I lost my low paying job a month or so ago. I thought about becoming a hooker but it just seems like I'd be terrible at that.

Nice Lounge. Not exactly 'Trees Lounge', but a bit close all the same. LOL.

I was U-Tube hopping when I came across this - The Legacy of German Expressionism:.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EHGla_N7LDE

Fyi, German Expressionism was a creative style in painting, film, and building, etc., developed in Germany before 1st World War up to its peak in the 1920s. German Expressionism film period was short-lived as Hitler & the Nazis came to power in 1933 and these were considered degenerative art.

However, some German film-makers fled to America and their styles transported to Hollywood as evidenced in their influence on the early horror films most notably Karl Freund's Dracula and The Mummy. Alfred Hitchcock was one of the earliest directors to be influenced by this style of film-making.

Directors like Ridley Scott, Tim Burton & Christopher Nolan are simply the latest in the long line of film-makers whose influence goes back to the German Expressionism. Burton's style is heavily influenced by German Expressionism, Nolan is more subtle, more similar to Film Noir which incidentally was an offshoot of Hollywood's German Expressionism. Scott's Blade Runner has heavy influences of Fritz Lang's Metropolis.

When I watched the second trailer for Man of Steel, combining with the first teaser and the snippet from Goyer's interview, I'm increasingly wondering if Snyder is going to become a discipline of Terrence Malick. . I doubt it because Snyder is mostly a visual director (much more than Malick) and a versatile filmmaker who can adapt to different styles, but is a weak storyteller. Malick's films are all uniquely Malick and they're reflection of his world view which can be be based on his experience as a doctoral level academia of (mostly Existentialism) Philosophy of Heideger, Kierkegard, Wittgenstein et al., and also published works like translation of Heidegger’s The Essence of Reasons.

But hey, it is good that Snyder is taking Superman in a slightly different direction. This is what I'm happy about - MOS seems to be devoid of Nolan's noir-like influence. If people said that Nolan influenced Snyder in term of style they could be more wrong as Snyder can never approach film style of noir variety or the extreme ones like Burton's. I hope that in the future Snyder evolves his own style and become a better storyteller as I very much love his style as much I love Malick's.

German Expressionism films on U-Tube - all full film:

Robert Wiene's The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari1920):
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xrg73BUxJLI

F.W. Murnau's Nosferatu (1922):
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rcyzubFvBsA

Fritz Lang's Metropolis (1927):
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ugasuWJVhx4

Fritz Lang's M (1931):
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WCEzfjERfvo

Fritz Lang's Mabuse (1933) which was banned a few months after the Nazis came to power and was deemed to be too anti-Nazis:

Cause they know the Marvel films will be good, regardless, and with DC films it's up in the air cause WB don't know how to handle their s**t.

Anyway, anyone else awaiting the arrival of the probably unfunny skit SNL has instore for MOS?

Sorry to hear that ISS, I was unemployed myself for quite some time a couple years ago. Never a happy time. Just don't get too used to the free time and fall into an unmotivated rut like I did.

Thanks for that post, moviefreak! RE: German Expressionism - Fritz Lang's M is one of my all-time favorite films. It was made pretty soon after the advent of sound, so it is a perfect example of how silent film directors made the transition to the new form of cinema. In the process, Lang's unusual application of sound made for a truly riveting, unsettling (in an almost Fincher-esque kind of way) experience. Plus, Peter Lorre was awesome. If anyone here hasn't seen it and has a couple of hours to spare, I'd highly recommend it. Noferatu and Metropolis are pretty fantastic, too.
