  1. I am curious as to why commentators are stuck on an Hispanic actor playing a Middle or Far Eastern character and why the choice of an Hispanic actor automatically meant he’d be playing Khan.

    • I can’t speak for the questions about people being “stuck” on it but, as far as Khan, we had heard numerous reports that indicated Del Doro would be playing that character – it wasn’t just industry rumors. Of course, the production could have just been putting out false info too – not to mention things could have changed now. We may never entirely know.

  2. Interesting that you guys said that 2011 was a bad year for movies. I’ve been hearing a lot others saying that it was one of the best in recent memory with great films like “Drive,” “Take Shelter,” “Martha Marcy May Marlene,” “Moneyball,” “Certified Copy,” “The Artist,” “Hugo,” “A Separation,” and “Tree of Life” You keep talking about how bad “The Green Lantern” was, but there was a lot more going on last year beyond comic book movies and the box office top 5.

    • Cathy – I don’t think anyone was outright saying it was actually a bad year for movies. I’m pretty sure that, within the last three podcasts, I mentioned Martha March May Marlene, Shame, and Drive as terrific films that were overlooked. I think there are two points we were addressing – and, remember, the questions we were responding to were in reference to poor box office results for Hugo and the year in general:

      1) It was a bad year for box office numbers – nearly all of the movies you mentioned made any money and were overlooked by moviegoers. They’ll get some traction in the awards season but Hugo is a perfect example of a movie that was great and was expecting to do well at the box office and didn’t. When a movie like that is a commercial failure and Green Lantern makes back a $200 million budget, I’d say it’s fair to say that it’s a bad year for movies – if only because next year studios aren’t as likely to take a gamble on the next Hugo.

      2) A lot of movies that we were excited about weren’t very good – such as Green Lantern. There were a number of movies that we had covered at the site for years that fell flat.

      I think, on principle, we actually agree – there were some terrific movies that came out this year. However, despite tickets to the movies costing more in 2011 than 2010, box office revenues actually fell 3.7%. If good movies like Hugo don’t make money or aren’t recognized by less-adventurous moviegoers, then I’d still go as far as to say that, while it might not have been a bad year, it was still a disappointing one.

      • Okay, I totally misunderstood! I get you now and definitely agree. Hugo was indeed an amazing film and should have been rewarded at the box office. The marketing did make it difficult for people to understand what kind of movie to expect. I’ll even admit that I wasn’t captured by the trailers and didn’t plan to see it until I’d heard from others how impressed they were.

        Since tickets are so expensive, people are only going to pay for movies they know they’ll like — something they can put a label on (comic book movie, exorcism horror, raunchy comedy). They want to go in knowing what to expect. Out of the 10 highest grossing movies of 2011 (worldwide), “The Smurfs” was the only non-sequel, and even that is based on a widely recognized brand. The more expensive movie tickets get, the less risks studios will be able to take on their films because people don’t want to pay $15 without being confident they know what kind of experience they’re paying for.

  3. I think 2011 movies were like a Wal-Mart $5 dollar bin. There’s some good movies but you gotta dig through all the crap. None of the summer blockbusters stood out. Most of the good movies that stood out came out after September IMO.

    Paranormal Activity 3 was episode 10 then Devil inside is episode 20…What will be “found footage” movie will be episode 30? lol
