The New "Comic Book" Movie?

Sam Rami's Spiderman movie started a big bang of other superhero stories hitting the big screen. A trend that is still going strong today. If you haven't noticed by now, movies happen in trends. When lord of the rings was big, we had medieval craze going on for a while. Studios want to milk the tit of what's currently popular until we get sick of that particular brand of milk. Comic book films are the milkiest tit in the biz right now but the milk is starting to run dry as we come closer to running out of heroes, and we've already started to dip into the reboot experiments, but I sense that a new challenger approaches. Web site movies. "The social network" has already gotten so much hype before it's release that Google is trying to catch a ride on this speeding train. Ken Auletta’s bestselling book "Googled: The End Of The World As We Know It" is currently being adapted for the silver screen. So what's next? Myspace: Tom's revenge or maybe a biopic about the rise and fall of Classmates.com? Either way, I can't wait to sell the rights for "The Mental Masochist: A Blogspot.com Story" 

If you'd like to find out some good ways to stick it to the man, and see these movies for free, my pal Rusty Cage wrote a blog with some good ideas here, get-into-movies-for-free Check it out and follow him if you dig it. He's a very generous one, that guy.

  1. Like the superhero movies, I imagine about 2 of the 'website flicks' will actually be worth watching.

  21. This is one of those movies that despite all the hype about it, I can't even be bothered to go see it. Facebook has never done anything good for me lol

  22. Wow.. The film industry really are running out of ideas, but who knows this could be the next best thing!
    ( Im just glad the vampire phase is nearing an end =P )

  23. We've kinda gone past the whole super-hero phase in my opinion. It's all just followups and reboots now, and they're all crap.

    ReplyDelete
  24. Last I heard they were making a Facebook movie, so "The Mental Masochist: A Blogspot.com Story" might not be far off! Keep it up. :)

  25. Social Network is part of the trend to integrate internet nonsense into every part of our human lives. Another example would be the youtube movie (virginity hit)

    I think it's a little less known how much advertising money is involved in these films and how homogenized the movie industry has become in search of revenue.

  26. Please, no website movies, that would suck so hard.

    I'm cool with comic book movies and stuff tho, especially with the technology available these days such as CGI and 3D and it'll be interesting to see these types of movies in the future as the technology evolves further.
