Miller's work on Batman.. [09 Aug 2009|03:44pm]

dustofempires
Hey all, there's something that has always kinda bothered me and I wondered what you guys thought of it. Thing is, I've never understood why people tend to love The Dark Knight Returns and tend to hate All Star Batman & Robin. When I read the latter I was simply overwhelmed by the witty lines and, okay, the awesome Jim Lee artwork. Also, the story made sense, despite the sarcasm and nihilsm sometimes. TDKR was simply boring and, yes I admit it, I generally don't like Miller's artworks so that didn't help me along either. So yes, I can be just the artwork that made me like the one and dislike the other. And, I'm not trying to compare both books, cause they're so very different and written at different times and all.. But I'm just wondering why everyone dotes on TDKR and seems to dispise All Star B&R. Perhaps I just don't get TDKR cause I'm reading it today and not 20 years ago (I wasn't even born when it came out, so yeah, it might have to do with my age).

So really, do I just have bad taste, or are people generally trying to sound arty and ditch stuff that is simply funny and looks good, and call it base? Am I alone with this opinion or not??


And addionally, I'm kinda looking for The Spirit (the movie) icons.. I saw the few posts in this community, but does someone know where to find any others? And oh well, now we're at it: how did you guys like that movie? I liked it a lot - but then again, I have bad taste.. Or not.

WSJ article on Miller's All-Star Batman [01 Jun 2008|11:35pm]

Holy Bats in the Belfry, Batman!

Nowadays, Bruce Wayne's Alter Ego Borders on the Psychopathic

By Brian Steinberg, Wall Street Journal

Imagine you are in the midst of getting mugged and Batman -- as improbable as this might seem -- swoops upon the scene. What sort of personality do you think he'd display?

People who know the character only from Saturday-morning cartoons, Hollywood movies and a campy TV series that aired in the 1960s would probably picture him as tough but fair, dispatching the criminal with a few hard rights and a deft judo kick. Frank Miller, a comics writer who has a long association with the character, is portraying him as unhinged, and suggesting this iconic hero borders on being a psychopath. Mr. Miller's Batman laughs maniacally to himself while on patrol; saunters about unshaven; beats criminals bloody; and kidnaps a young boy to groom him as his sidekick, Robin -- despite protests from other superheroes.

300 RiffTrax Released. [04 Aug 2007|04:43am]

bathtubnz

Mystery Science Theater's Mike Nelson, Kevin Murphy and Bill Corbett have just released their lastest RiffTrax, 300!

A small band of brave men struggle against enormous odds, battling a superior force, and though ultimately they are defeated their sacrifice becomes a source of inspiration and hope that rings out like a clarion call through the pages of history. But enough about the Mighty Ducks.

Miller to adapt and direct Raymond Chandler's "Trouble is my Business" [21 Jun 2007|02:28pm]

watchmelaugh
From the Newsarama blog:

Looks like Frank Miller may be too busy to get to that Batman vs. terrorism project we’ve all been hearing about. In addition to his work on the Spirit film and Sin City 2, Variety reports he’s been tapped to direct an adaptation of the Raymond Chandler novella “Trouble Is My Business.”

Miller will work again with Clive Owen, who appeared in the first Sin City film:

“Sin City” was Miller’s first collaboration with Owen. “Trouble Is My Business” was chosen partly because it provides the actor with a similar chance to frame the narrative with a compelling voiceover, using Chandler’s hardboiled prose as hard-drinking private eye Philip Marlowe cracks cases, busts heads and romances femme fatales in 1940s Los Angeles.

While many of Chandler’s novels have been turned into films, “Trouble Is My Business” is virgin territory.

“Frank Miller knows more about noir than anyone I have ever met, and clearly the writing of Raymond Chandler has been an enormous influence on his life and his work,” Owen said. “Miller adapting Chandler seemed like a perfect match.”

Samuel Jackson in Wizard magazine:




Rodriguez and MIller must be retarded if they can't find a role for Jackson.  My vote - forget Johnny Depp and have him do Wallace in Hell and Back.

August 18th! [22 Dec 2005|08:14pm]

spirk4life
From Sci Fiwire

Frank Miller, who co-directed Sin City with Robert Rodriguez, told Empire Online that his upcoming sequel will be one of five such movies he envisions, based on his Sin City graphic novels.

"I'm finishing the script right now for Sin City 2," Miller told the site. "I can't wait to get back behind the camera. If I have my way, there's going to be five [films]. But that's if I have my way! Five would take care of all the graphic novels. But there's new material that I'm writing for the second one. There'll probably also be a separate graphic novel that I'll do. It's a Nancy Callahan story that I've been wanting to do."

Sin City 2 is slated for an Aug. 18, 2006, release. Miller is currently directing 300, based on his other graphic novel, about the ancient Battle of Thermopylae.
