necklace: Forever 21
A while back, B and I took a day off to see Guardians of the Galaxy since our super rad comic book guy saved us a couple of advance screening passes. For a movie about a bunch of Marvel B-listers, I was surprised at the huge turnout. The line started forming a good 2 hours before the movie, and thank goodness we thought to get there way early and brought our comics with us to pass the time.
On the topic of comics vs. comics movies, I get asked quite often how I feel about movie adaptations, especially because I take my comics reading seriously. (It can't be helped when your educational training is on dissecting and gleaning meaning from, well, anything) As I take it, each title-- comics or movie-- has a target audience and a goal. Businesses want to make money off of that audience, so obviously they will appeal to what they like. I understand that when I see a new comics movie that hams up their characters or have meh, unremarkable plot lines. That said, I take it one title at a time. I read for pleasure just as much as I watch, and I can understand when continuity becomes a deterrent of good story.
