I’m going to end up being a lone wolf in this conversation because literally everyone seems to be in love with comic book movies nowadays. I don’t like them for the most part. It’s not that I’m not a comic book fan. I just don’t like the amount of comic book superhero movies that keep popping up literally every single year. I was the kid who imagined how cool it would be if these movies were a thing back when the technology wasnt sufficient to make a decent comic book movie. Now that I look at them, I understand the phrase “be careful what you wish for” more than ever. There are several reasons for this that will be discussed here.
The first thing I don’t like about the current crop of comic book movies is the unwarranted amount of SJW rhetoric that is forced into the movies themselves. Do we really need feminist, left wing politics in every movie we watch? If I wanted to engage in politics, I would go into political forums or read through the tweets of political analysts. I don’t need politics in my coffee, my TV shows, and most certainly not in my movies. It makes the movie less about the heroes and more about the politcal agendas the writers want to push. I don’t even bother complaining anymore since I havent watched a comic book movie since Deadpool. I don’t think I’m missing out since I don’t pay for them in theaters and don’t watch the movies on Netflix either. If more people boycotted these movies like they do with the comics (whose sales have been plumetting because of SJW nonsense), the writers would learn that their customers mean business.
The second thing I’m not too happy about is the over saturation of these movies. There’s like two comic book movies every year. I can’t even keep track of them all. Black Panther and Avengers Infinity War both came out this year alone. I just don’t even bother anymore because otherwise I’d go broke buying movie tickets. I’m the kind of guy who also believes in waiting till prices drop so I can appreciate things at my own leisure and not run in the rat race. If I feel like watching a Marvel movie, I’ll do so on my time, not anyone else’s.
Third, I’m just having a hard time taking comic book movies seriously. I’ve lost interest in nerd culture as an adult for the most part. I tend to go backwards with my nerd culture these days. If anyone reading this blog ever gets a chance, read The Sunset Warrior by Eric Van Lustbader for an example of the kind of science fiction I’ve been reading as of lately. It was written in the 70s and is still as good as I remembered when I first read it in the public library during my high school days (I’m over 30 now, so this was a long time ago).
Finally, I just don’t have the time anymore since I’m so busy engaging in my life that it’s actually rare if I sit down and watch any movies at all. I’m writing novels, blogs, short stories, and more literature than most can imagine. I also work a full time day job, create content online on YouTube, Twitch, Mixer, and other platforms. I engage on social media when I get a chance to self promote as well as discuss matters of interest and importance on top of staying in shape at the gym. I basically don’t have a life because I’m too busy living it. When I put the words “Transforming thoughts into actions” on the title, I mean it to say that if I want to do something, I take action to make my dreams come true. This blog post, for example, is me writing my thoughts for the internet to see. Whether the general public likes my opinion on comic book movies or not is up to them. They cannot, however, deny that I am engaging in my life and devoting my time to putting my thoughts out there even if they don’t like the opinions I post. With all this on my plate, I refuse to devote hours of my short life into movies that usually run over two hours. Thanks but no thanks.
That’s all I have for now. Tell me what you think in the comments or on all other social media where this is posted. May your daydreams manifest.
