I genuinely cannot believe people actually didn't mind the skeevy-rear end fantasy sport ads that had the feeling of people trying to get you to buy scratch tickets.

The Mary Sue moniker is probably more apt than most because she's literally shown to be a fangirl of the 'original' movies. She knows the stories about Han and Luke etc, she even has memorabilia.

A Mary-Sue is any character that is too perfect and makes the story worse/boring for their lack of flaws. What did I get wrong?

Not it isn't. A Mary-Sue is a blatant self-insert that is used as a type of power fantasy for the author. I could further restrict the definition specifically to fanworks wherein the original cast is completely deferential to the self-insert but I think there can be some leeway with the definition.

Literary terms are specifically not meant to change meaning so that everybody knows exactly what you're talking about at all times. "Dramatic irony" means the same thing it did hundreds of years ago even if the colloquial use of "irony" doesn't.

(D&D itself isn't about anything; it's a blank slate you're supposed to make your own setting for. Why they thought taking something with no inherent narrative and turning it into a movie was a good idea is beyond me.)

Because you can do pretty much whatever the gently caress you want with the script and have a built in audience based on name recognition.

I honestly have no strong investment in Batman as a character, but the main issue I have with these movies is that I don't want a movie about Superman being forced into situations where he can't save everyone, or seeing Bats and Superman beating each other up. That's not what the characters are about. The whole movie is predicated on the "versus" thing, which is the kind of thing lovely fanfic writers do. "Oh man who could beat up who?" Who cares? They're not enemies; they're best friends with common goals.

Evil Mastermind posted:

okay, legit answer: Just because I don't have a strong investment in the character doesn't mean I don't care about him. I'm not table-flipping angry at how Bats and Supers are portrayed in Snyder's movies, but that doesn't mean I can't be disappointed in how the characters are portrayed in comparison to their source material.

Both Batman and Superman have been depicted in a million different ways over a million different comics, which isn't even counting all the ways he's been portrayed in other media. Not liking this specific rendition of either character is totally fine but going "Not My Batman" or "Not My Superman" is silly.

I wasn't trying to go "NOT MY _______"; I wasn't aware that's how I was coming across.

Like the thing is that saying "the characters are portrayed wrongly in comparison to their source material" is really silly, because that could be levied against any Batman story that isn't his original Detective Comics run (ditto for Superman and Action Comics).

The RLM episode about BvS was pretty fun, because the guys are not really comic book fans, so they have little investment in the characters themselves, beyond a general pop culture knowledge. So, the episode was mostly just jokes about a badly made movie and Zack Snyders typical idiosyncrasies instead of either ripping apart or defending the movie.

??? They endlessly complained that "superman movies are supposed to be fun and this wasn't fun!!!"

LORD OF BUTT posted:

I am not a particularly strong Catholic, but if someone made a straight-faced movie about Jesus going Charles Bronson on drug dealers, I'd probably take some umbrage with its concept on the grounds that they kinda don't get the whole "Jesus" thing. I get the impression Evil Mastermind was trying to say something similar: he doesn't particularly care that much about Batman or Superman, but BvS is still so utterly different from his understanding of those characters that it doesn't interest him.

This comparison makes no sense considering there aren't decades of media presenting alternate takes on Jesus.
