I know it's human nature to be very harsh to work done by an unseen hand (artists, not God), but I would encourage people that are looking at design work for movies to consider the 100s of hours of work you're trashing with very limited knowledge on the subject.

The effects on this movie look amazing.  Anyone that doesn't see that is inexperienced in art, design, & specifically effects. 

They're really busting tail to deliver something beautiful and original.

Even the shittiest movie takes hundreds if not thousands of man hours. We don't need to have knowledge of the process to criticize what we see. No one here I think is trying to be harsh just to be an a-hole, we're expressing our opinion of what little we've seen. So when we applaud other films at this stage what's the reasoning then? Is that human nature too? No we're just being frank with our opinions. I think everyone here wanrts the film to look great and be a success despite what flaws we think it may have.

And I think most here have applauded the overall effects and look of the film with the exception of the cgi suit

@Wiseguy,

Going back to your previous post (not this last one in response to @SteveFox). You asked "how is the cgi different from a leotard costume except that a real costume would look more authentic?"

Well, I guess that is a matter of aesthetics.  When spandex is stretched across muscles, you do not see every nook and cranny of the body of the wearer.  The way comic book costumes are drawn, it's as if the costume were painted onto the individual.  I guess a classic example of each is Chris Reeve's Superman (spandex), Michael Keaton's Batman (sculpted rubber to look like muscles).  TV's Flash (Jon Wesley Shipp) went with the sculpted muscles, too.  With the sculpted muscles, the guy looks like the drawn characters look.

So I guess what I'm saying is, do you want him to look like a guy in a spandex suit (which, outside of comics is pretty much never seen), or a guy in a space-age, muscular-looking CGI suit., that radiates light and can appear and disappear at will?

I don't know.  Maybe I'm giving it too much credit.

Wiseguy, I'm thinking Reynolds being in shape doesnt hide behind the cgi costume, but enhances it. I feel all icky talking about Reynolds body....

Also, I'mlovingthe diverse alien lifeforms we're seeing. I feel it doesn't get mentioned enough. We talk a lot about the costume, but how cool is it to see all the weird creatures coming to life from the comics. I always thought GL had some of the most original funky looking aliens in all of comics.

Suddenly everyone is describing the wear-and-tear of a CGI versus spandex costume on Ryan Reynold's body. How about starting a clothing line specifically for superheroes? Put these ideas to good use. :P

Wiseguy: I'm only concerned with this being another cardboard character Ryan is putting together. I can care less what type of suit he wears.

@Batmite, I guess in the end is a matter of taste. IMO the spandex or rubber suit just looks better and it could still be a ring construct that appears and disappears at will. Like I said I like cgi, I just don't like the suit having a similar look to the ring's constructs, I 'd rather it looked "real" and just add a glow around it at certain points. If the cgi for the suit looked more like the bottom picture I'd be happier than the if it looks more like the top picture

In the end this may be nothing  if the film turns out as good as I hope and that's what I'm expecting

Krath, that was one of my 2 worries also. But after seeing Burried and thinking on some other stuff Reynolds has done my confidence has grown.

Not a fan of that latest trailer...

UltimateTypeface 4/21/2011 10:22:20 PM

I watched Thor in 3D last night. ......Dont stress NO SPOILERS

It blew my socks off and I had pretty high expectations from this film. In fact Im generally hard to impress when it comes to comic book adaptions but Marvel have done it well again.

I cant say a bad thing about it, the acting was convincing which is hard when you are a god., The characters and costumes where right out of the comic books and the special effects are still running around in my head.

This movie universe Marvel have created has taken a big step. I mean Iron Man is kind of feasable, Hulk is crazy but weird shit happens out there ...but the God of Thunder/ Frost Giants/ Asgard? It  really has opened the door for some cool Marvel stories. ..and wait for the bit after the credits -joy for the fanboys.

But...if you not a big Thor fan and all his mythology you may be hanging out for some more Marvel Universe references - this is a stand alone Thor Movie- you may have to wait for Avengers. I have a huge Thor comic book collection so I loved it, so im giving it 9/10

3 biggest problems with GREEN LANTERN MOVIE:

 

1) CGI across the board , from costume to the aliens ect- it all looks sub par compared to movies like TREK XI, AVATAR or even TR2N.

2) The costume it self has some cool ideas but the mask ir horrendous and the feet aspect its laughable. AKA not cool at all.

3) biggest PROBLEM with this GL movie....miscast RYAN RENOLDS  is acting COMPLETELY OUT OF CHARACTER of Hal Jordans ULTRA serious character. 

Hal in the origin was not comical or a womanizer. He was a brooding jerk who was living in his fathers shadow.

I don't know if its just me but I'm looking at that second picture with the Gatlin gun and wondering should the Fire burst be remotely yellowish? Wouldnt that work against the ring? Green Gun making Yellowish flame? what do you guys think? Maybe I'm looking too much into this!

Never the less I'm looking forward to seeing this!!!
