    Again, I didn't say it was just a movie with a famous black lead; its a quasi-blockbuster with an (almost) entirely all-black cast (usually only reserved for small serious dramas fighting oppression and for civil rights or Tyler Perry-esque comedies) that just broke a record for early ticket sales. IMO this is somewhat of a big deal.  YMMV.

    Until the JL movie, Henry Cavill based his portrayal of Superman on Droopy the Dog.

    That article, while spot on in its analysis, is missing the meta forest for the diagetic trees. The leadership displayed in these movies is so poor because the writers don't know anything whatsoever about proper military conduct, effective echelon command and control, effective campaign strategy, or realistic operations and logistical management. The only storytelling imperative they seem to follow is "keep it bone stupid for the audience who will never know the difference."

    Yes I saw them. Good mythology in 'bad' films. Bad as in too cgi heavy, wooden acting, dialogue that needed improvement, etc. 
     
    It seems that the Disney films have ignored the mythological roots of Star Wars and just given us generic Hollywood-ified films, though it is still too early to judge without the third film.

    Starlord reacted to Christopher R Taylor in What Fiction Book (other than Science Fiction or Fantasy) have you recently finished?   
    Just read all of Robert Howard's Conan stories in a collection.  I'm struck by the ease with which he created this world when it really was the first real fantasy world anyone had ever imagined.  Before him there were faerie stories and tales of strange things but this was the very first fantasy world.  Conan stories predate all of Tolkien's books and all the Narnia books.  They're great stuff, and the character is fascinating.
