Tampering with some of the fundementals.

  Hey everyone,
   So today recently read part 2 of O.M.I.T. Right now i find the proper words to express true displeasure for what i read. Just seeing this issue brought me back to Civil war and the whole unmasking thing. I guess im just going to rant on this, and i know its been like 3 years since civil war. but WTF! 
 
  I mean come on guys what on gods green earth ever made them think that having spider-man reveal his identity was a great thing. But the fundementals of spider-man was to NEVER reveal himself to the public. oh yeah sure i can see family, fine what ever. but to the public was just absurd. after 50+ years of comic history that spider-man has fought super villians and put them away into prison, pissed them off with witty comebacks or sass, and ruined their lives in some way shape or form. that some how it would be ok to reveal your identity cause for one being a photographer for a paper that hates spider-man oh yeah. great idea Joe. 
 
  I quote deadpool and say "my common senses are tingling" , Then just when he realizes that revealing himself was a bad thing he ends up losing aunt may. frankly i say let the old woman die for your mistake you dumb ass. maybe this was marvels way of doing a retcon. Next thing on this list is to break up the only stable relationship peter has ever had. I know they are trying to get back to the old cartoon style where peter can't hold down a single relationship but that was the past. 
 
  With that being done i just say since civil war i have barely even picked up a spider-man issue. ive been reading what my friends bought at the comic store but i will not buy into it hoping that the series would get better. Marvel has made Spider-man unforgivable at this point.
 
  So why is it at some point that you decide to make a character go back on one of their moral choices? it kills the story. and i mean. not to get off topic but Shadowland. we have the chance for Daredevil to be the god damn bad ass he is meant to be but nope, they have to go and pull a parallax out of their ass and make him possessed. its this type of change that are half assed attempts in comics that are similar to movies. I know they artists and writers get bored of the same old thing all the time but since i do not do neither i love the same old things that had me reading as a kid. 
 
  Iike i mean come on Marvel go back to the basics, don't take the basics and slap it in the face with a full season dvd case of the surreal life. Drama drama drama always that when i mean drama was the secondary or third force in a good story. it was the action and doing amazing things that got us into comics. and its the same thing that goes for the movies as well when dealing with comics, or toylines.
 
 Rant Part 2:
 
   So one the last point on movies  I came to a recent discovery that the man who just did the new predators movie is doing the three muskateers movie and He-man and the masters of the universe movie. i was thinking "well maybe we can get a director that might pull of he-man". so i went to see the new predators movie. soooo.......
 
   I decided to look up this Writer, and after a while searching, i came across an interview with Alex litvak. it was a german interview but becomes english, he talks mainly about predators, but 3/4 of the way through he mentioned about his writing on the new three muskateers movies and Masters of the Universe. and as a fan of both series the big piss off i am getting listening to this stuttering fool. He does not want He-man in the traditional sense. Prince Adam is Prince Adam, he does not transform into he-man. he says its to update him and make him. for those who think im over exaggerating i have the link to the audio so.

   Im done for the night. and i am off to do a review for tomorrow, so ill let you decide on what you think on the new changes to the movie.im out so everyone take care of yourselves and your family. and ill see you next time when i blog.
    Good Journey,

From days of new?

 
   Recently, My self and others got into a discussion about new comics books ripping off the old issues from days or years gone by. one being of which was Blackest night. only the fact that they took a main villian and changed how he got into the story. now its been a while but Nekron when he was introduced it was during the reign of Kyle Rayner pre crisis. I was not a fan into 90's comic books because everything they tried to pass off was crap. even worse when they made me spend almost $7 for a holofoil varient cover.
   
   So it got me thinking. what made those old stories good? so i asked around. most people gave me an answer that they had great artwork. others said that it was the story. I too had to ponder this for a while. but then i said screw it and played some Modern Warfare Reflex. after my 5th straight game loss i had a thought to watch one of my old DVD's that had stan lee interview. this was an interview with kevin smith. 
  
   So anyways in this interview Stan lee mentioned a lot of the stories and characters he created were out of laziness. which made me think "no your not lazy stan." to try to prove my point as i always try to do i went through my old back issues of X-men, spider-man and green arrow comics. most by this way are pre the year 88. and going over the stories i had to laugh cause Stan was right. I hate to admit defeat but he was right. most of those old comics were laughable for story, the artwork was not ahead of its time. but most of the stories did not make sense most of the time, plot holes up the wazoo. but thats how it was. you had few people working on multiple stories and so of course it would not be the best or deep stories ever. but they worked none the less. 
 
  Looking at the newer issues of today and ignore the void which was the 90's, There was much more care and depth into most of the comics during the turn of the 21st century. Most of this had to do with new writers being fans of the old comics but they added more to what the original creators never thought of. so i guess what im trying to say is we should respect the new comics because more time and care is put into it by someone who more than likely read the stories when they were younger. right now i got kids comics of Masters of the universe to catch up on from the 80's.
