Mostly sketches. Occasionally a painting. Nothing political other than caricatures reinforcing the truism "Politics is Show Business for Ugly People".
Haven't seen it.Because I am over halfway through a 600 page SHOWCASE volume of BLACKHAWK comics, I'm fairly convinced everything involving comic storytelling is stupid and pointless.
The artist did a heroic job of making Blackhack look like Rory Calhoun in every image of the character.
Ben, I was underwhelmed. Seemed like the same movie as the first one. And no, the Viz (which was coolest part of movie by far) was not quite this colorful--but I think that has to do with how they post'ed the image--I bet his movie costume would look identical to this Toy under regular photographic conditions. Bonus points to filmmakers for finding equivalence between Black Widow's barren womb and the Hulk's city-leveling rampages (they're both MONSTERS).Elz: HAR HAR!
I don't know about equivalence... Though it was weird. Cap and Iron Man saw what they feared (Cap was self centered compared to what Iron Man was afraid of) and the Widow felt her pain, straight out of Star Trek V. We just assume that Banner feared what he ended up doing. It would have been nice to see a second or two of what kind of monster he thinks the Hulk is. Plus close-ups of Mark Ruffalo are bad enough, but big green (ish, color again) close ups were hard to take.
Also, no clue what Thor's hallucination was about.
There's like an HOUR missing from all this hodgepodge.
I was entertained but I have no burning desire to see it again. I ADORE the first movie, so this had a pretty hard hill to climb. Ultron turned out to be not a very compelling villain in spite of the fact that I love him in the comics and that I could listen to James Spader read the phonebook and be entertained.
I liked it, but it withers under even the slightest criticism. I wonder how much the excised hour-long film improves the experience. Hopefully there's a director's cut coming out at some point.
