The problem with superhero movies is the lack of absolutely ANY lasting negative consequences.
Die? Come back to life.
Lose your powers? Get way better powers.
Get arrested? Escape.
Lose an arm? Bionic arm.
(Box office bomb? Reboot.)
No wonder there are so many villains. If you lived in a world where there were zero lasting negative consequences to your actions, you’d probably be a villain too.
Audiences are getting sick of it. Maybe that will be a lasting negative consequence they can’t ignore.
If you ask me what genre of music I like, I’ll tell you I like Music That Is Made For People Who Make Music.
Music That Understands It Is Part Of A Conservation That We’re All Adding To.
That’s why I don’t listen to 80s or 90s music, or The Beatles, or music that tries to sound like oldies. I think we’ve pretty much already covered those topics around 20. Freaking. Years. Ago.
It’s disrespectful to the people who are still having the conservation to butt in with some non sequitur throwback to a theme that’s already been thoroughly discussed and then moved on from. When you keep popping up with that feel-good story from your high school years (that we’ve all already heard a million times), my mind starts to wander.
Don’t be that guy, bro. Don’t be that guy.
