Yeah, cuz that never happens in the comics. I'm guessing he didn't like or see Mask of the Phantasm.
He didnt actually read the comics...he watched the movies that always end with the good guy winning and everything being tied up in a nice little bow. Hero ends up saving/getting the girl and saving the world. A big Superman fan. He's also a big action guy...seriously, he idolizes Arnold, Stallone, Van Dam, Segal, Lundgren, etc. These guys never lose and that's the way he likes it. I try to get him to expand his mind on the whole thing but, any time the hero dies or loses in a way, it ends up ruining the movie for him. And being that hollywood goes this direction a lot now, he's not as big a fan of movies as he used to be. It is funny though, when you think about it, running down my list of dvds, the hero dies or his life is left in question in a great deal of my movies. I would list them but, that would be a big spoiler post...So, i'd rather not.
I havent watched it, I bought it for my dad who always watched the cartoon back in the day and he hated it. Said it was almost unwatchable and too much was going on. That could be the typical old timer reaction, though. haha.
He also didnt like the Dark Knight...he did up until the end but, he said the ending ruined the movie for him because, super heroes shouldnt be wrongfully hunted and are not criminals. He's of the old school and only wants to see the happy ending, you see. :)
The ending of The Dark Knight kind of angered me too. I wanted one of those damn boats to explode.
Thinking about all my favorite movies and trying to find a good one to watch tonight got me thinking about my favorite actors.. I'm sure it's been brought up plenty of times, but what's everyone favorites?
My top 5 would go something like this in no order
1.) Emile Hirsch
2.) Leonardo Dicaprio
3.) Edward Norton
4.) Paul Giamatti
5.) Daniel Day Lewis
