A step behind

Thursday, 13 December 2007

Another thing Superman Returns had against it, besides an awful story, is the number of movie characters who have convincingly flown in the past few years (thanks to green screens and computers):

Neo from The Matrix
Harry Potter and Friends
Batman (glides)
Spider-Man (close enough)
Hulk (leaps)
Storm, Magneto (sort of) and the Gay Hawk Guy from X-Men
Flames Guy from Fantastic Four
and from their own franchise:

Smallville’s Clark Kent (at times) Zod/Lex Luthor, Martian Man Hunter, Bizarro and Supergirl.

Now a new version of KITT for a new made-for-tv movie has been revealed. Sure, it looks cool, but didn’t most of us just see a whole FLEET of cool vehicles that become convincing-as-hell CGI robots in Transformers?

Half of Hollywood is a step behind.
