Broken family

Journal Entry: Wed Nov 25, 2015, 6:27 PM
  • Mood: Defeated
  • Reading: The Martian - Andy Weir

I wish I could tell you things are doing great, I wish I could keep a grin and say "happy thanksgiving" and wish you all the best for you and your families; but I wouldn't be honest that I had a hint of sarcasm there with all the drama that has befallen my family lately.

Just recently, my cousin had been beaten by her husband and he assaulted an officer who came to stop the domestic disturbance, landing him a potential life sentence.
Remember that flood in early 2015 in Texas? The one that Tumblr claimed happened because Texas rejected Same-Sex marriage? My extended family, a sweet and open-minded family of four I might add (with my cousins being MLP fans for any out there that want to know) down there suffered from that, suffering from bacteria and contaminants that flooded inside and losing their house they sunk half a million into building.
And just when they get the house back to code to these tornados storm in and cause flooding.

And the cherry on this sundae of stress? My sister is flunking out of college as she cannot decide on a major and she isn't sure what to do now.

And I'm working on Thanksgiving, so much for the holiday to bring families together.

Sorry to laden all this depressing personal information lately, but it is just taking it's toll on my mood and it's becoming a little too noticeable.

Take care folks...

Me? Well, to be frank; I'm just an 22 year old film-making student who is hoping to learn the arts of the trade so I can create and receive an Academy Award for making a film that will make you all think.

I have Autism but I am a very high-functioning person who uses his disability as a gift even when there are days it feels like a curse.

I enjoy playing video games, watching movies with a good well-written story with great actors and good music, reading good books when I feel like it and otherwise trying to motivate myself to actually do some damn work around here.

Apart from that, I don't try to reveal too much about myself, I'm choosing to try and keep myself below the radar. Have fun with all my deviant crap! ^^

I read your 10 worst of 2010 journal and I'm not happy of what you said about The Nutcracker in 3D! I don't think its worse! Look Mister! I don't like People who make Rotten DISLIKES on this Movie!! It bothers me Too Much!! Also, I think Yogi Bear, Gulliver's Travels, Th last Airbender, Clash of the Titans, and Percy Jackson aren't WORSE!!! It doesn't matter if the Nutcracker in 3D is different from the Ballet, especially all the stuff of the Movie are not AWFUL!!!!!! Will you please just give it a chance?! Huh?!Rage Stare

Hey dude, sorry for asking this again (I really, really need to write that link down) but what's the YouTube to MP3/4's URL again?

Also, I have some more questions on movie/video making.

Question: do you think at one point superhero movies will die out like westerns did in the 1960s?
Volts48 Featured By Owner Sep 3, 2015  Hobbyist Filmographer
Here's the thing; Westerns never actually died out, they've just been re-invented and reverted into the contemporary times. (look no further than "Firefly," "Cowboy Bebop," and "Red Dead Redemption" if you want proof it hasn't completely died out and I would say the show "Breaking Bad" re-used classic Western archetypes and concepts in it's 5 seasons).

What happened to Westerns is precisely what happened to the superhero genre now; they were re-invented to appeal to a new contemporary audience. They took ideas being used by other film-makers (be it from overseas or from people who had a different idea on how to play with the genre) and they were remolded shortly afterwards because they were what audiences liked to see. Spaghetti Westerns breathed new life into the genre and, while you won't see a huge surge of Westerns like it was back then, Westerns still exist but with heroes driving cars instead of riding horses.

The same with the Superhero genre. It did have a sense of popularity, but major film studios had very little idea how to market the visual print into the silver screens. "Batman" was a huge success and, as such, all other major studios tried to emulate that, sometimes succeeding, most times blowing chunks at doing so.
But, slowly but surely, the major studios took notice when "The Dark Knight" raked in a billion dollars that this was what people wanted and tried to run with that, though Marvel went out with a major risk to make several movies to promote one and, considering the box office returns, it paid off. So much so, even Warner Bros. is trying to do that same thing with their own "Justice League" film...but just cramming as many heroes into one or two and just hope people give enough of a crap to want to see them.

So my answer to you if this genre will die out, right now, I'd say no. But the genre has to tone things down right now, otherwise, the bigger you try to make your comic book film, the less promise and less money future adaptations will make because audiences have been so numbed with what Hollywood gives them that, say, if someone makes an adaptation of Neil Gaiman's "The Sandman," audiences will dismiss it because "it's not as cool as "The Avengers," and that's depressing to consider how jaded audiences will be that something made to be thought-provoking and contemplative will just be swept to the wayside in favor of something less mindless and unintelligent, like say, "Batman vs Superman vs Freddy vs Jason vs Alien vs Predator vs Kevin Hart (with a cameo by Shaquille O'Neal)" (it doesn't make any sense, but by then, who will even care?).

The genre will only stay live when audiences are still wiling to pay to see it. It'll die out when audiences are tired of it, plain and simple. The slasher genre is somewhat dead in the water now as horror films are moving towards the cheap to produce and box office successful Found Footage genre, so it's only fair to say the same will happen to the superhero genre eventually, can't say when, but when it does, expect to see some direct-to-video films for Iron Man on a rental shelf somewhere.

Well said. :) Thanks for taking the time to answer my question. The reason for this is I have a story and a thought I had was, what if a superhero was part of a world where the superhero concept had died down and became unpopular in culture.

Your thoughts? I was rooting dor DK!
Volts48 Featured By Owner Aug 12, 2015  Hobbyist Filmographer
Never cared for either franchises so I had no cares for the fight in general.
CKToonStudios Featured By Owner Aug 12, 2015  Hobbyist General Artist
...I have no idea how to respond to that.
Volts48 Featured By Owner Aug 12, 2015  Hobbyist Filmographer
Just smile and nod, it'll clear anything else and leave an awkward air in the room.

Hey, Volts? I want to start a movie critic series called the Cinematic Metalhead, where I call myself a Cinematic Metalhead because I love movie and listen to metal all the time. I thought it would be cool having me as a metalhead review movies. How do you put pictures and videos on your reviews?
