Episode 154 - "I got Kevlar down to my UNDEROOS, dickhead."

PCX reviews Kick-Ass #7

I finally saw the Kick Ass movie. Damn, that was good. The movie did Big Daddy better service by keeping his sob story a reality, because if he faked it, people would have turned on him faster than Starhawk did.

I don't know if they'll do a Kick Ass 2, but I'm all for it.

Why is Bale considered a great actor, he was annoying in the 2nd Batman and amazingly more annoying than the plot in Terminator: Salvation.

Jack Black was in Tropic Thunder? I don't remember him in it, did he die early?

So the whole thing with Big Daddy was he wanted to be Lone Wolf and Cub? That's different.

Will you be reviewing other daddy and daughter teams like Body Bags? It's about an assassin and his overdeveloped 14 year old daughter.

Nah, I think they should have kept his sob story as a fake, it's funnier and more tragic that way. There are already enough "Death Wish/Punisher" type of movies and comics out there. But I guess if you gotta pan to the sheep...

I know this is going to stun you, but Christian Bale has made movies before Terminator and Batman.

May I mention that in both the films you mentioned the director thought "Hey, you know that this movie needs? A deep, scratchy 5 year old doing a prank phone call voice"


The reason I don't like Big Daddy's story being fake is that it kinda sorta feels like a rehash of Kick Ass' story about his mom, where he didn't have any good story about why he became a hero. I think for a guy to train his daughter to be so hardcore, you have to have a sob story.

Look at Kick Ass. he was basically a loser for most of movie/comic. If his mom was murdered, he'd probably work out, and at least learn some MMA.

What does Empire of the Sun have to do with anything?

Yeah and it shows Big Daddy and Kick-Ass have more in common that you might have thought. Big Daddy is just the adult with a child version of Kick-Ass. And they did what some of us wanted to do.

"I got Kevlar down to my UNDEROOS, dickhead." "Funny", you meant sexy.

This American Life recently re-released episode 178:Superpowers, Stream and skip to the 20 min mark for the story of Zora, a girl who used a list to become a "superhero" Act 2:The List. Of course, this may have been refuted.

I'm probably asking the wrong audience here, but it's just about hair cut time for me and I can't decide if I'll keep it short or grow it out again.

No, I thought Snap Judgment was about musicians, and I'm not into the sleaze as some others are. What is it actually about?

Grow it out, you look cute in either case but since you like costuming, you can always cut it down for the desired effect.

Actually I don't know about much of the rest of the US, but there are a lot of place in NYC, that look like they are sets of TV shows or movies. But not so clean. and much "darker" than Seinfeld.

Like almost all of Central Park looks like it can be a set of a Woody Allen movie, oh wait, he does tend to shoot on location because it's cheaper. COUjewGH.

Vichus, I'd rather they'd have kept Big Daddy as he was in the comic, but I blame Nick Cage for the change; it's funny how many so-called actors don't understand that their job is to basically be the scriptwriter's monkey and play a character; if that character's written to be less than perfect, so be it.

Xantes, Jack Black was in Tropic Thunder alright; he just (unsurprisingly) wasn't as memorably funny as his fellow cast members, even if for once he was competent. And he didn't die; you were just projecting what anyone who's seen most of his movies wishes would happen to him. Also, Kevlar's not sexy per se, but of course any ten-year old girl in Underoos totally is.

I'd never even heard of Body Bags, but it's pretty obvious Mark "never had an original idea in his life, and this proves it" Millar had.

Courtney, yeah, young girls should just have long hair on principle.

Although you should totally ignore Xantes' suggestion that you shave your pubes; I can understand wanting a girl to go for that younger-than-legal look down there, but just the presence of boobies conflicts with that whole image. Now if a girl's pretty much flat-chested, okay that's a whole different story; then I can see having her put her (head) hair in pigtails and shaving herself bald "down there" and not wearing panties under her short Catholic schoolgirl skirt-- wait, what was the question again?

The best Aussie band ever was the Birthday Party. Nick Cave rules. The worst Aussie act ever is either Helen Reddy or Olivia Newton-John (like there's a difference between them.)

Xantes, I'll answer your questions since I deleted the blogspam:

Age of consent laws are fascist and evil.

Whether I'd think amputees are sexy or not would have to go on a case-by-case basis.

Necrophilia, same thing; I mean if a broad's only been dead for a few minutes, it's not like she necessarily stinks or anything yet.

You give actors so much power. Don't you think it was focus groups and all that crap that led to how Big Daddy's story turned out?

August 27, 2010 7:30 PM  
Blogger T Mafia said...

That's entirely possible and if so, more's the shame. The only reason I assume it was more likely Cage is that Kick-Ass was one of those "indie" movies not necessarily beholden to Hollywood's reliance on focus groups and such.

The creative team involved have been through the system, though, so maybe they changed up the ending based on expectations.

I would think that Nic Cage is just happy to put on a costume. He knows he'll never be asked to play Superman at this point.

T-Mafia, Don't accuse Nicholas Cage of changing a script based on YOUR preconceived notions about A-List actors and Nic Cage.

Matthew Vaughn bankrolled this movie himself to avoid studio meddling, and as of late 2009, the movie was completely finished and he still hadn't had a distributor yet. That means no studio head could tell him what to do, that includes choice of actors.

The movie ads were never centered on Big Daddy, so why would the director make such concessions to Cage when he isn't the draw of the movies? The answer? He wouldn't.

Besides, he didn't only change Big Daddy's story, but Kickass and Red Mists' story endings, too. I think the director made the ending more palatable because he didn't want the audience to hate the main characters.

And Fuck XantesFire for suggesting that people who don't wanna watch a movie full of dishonorable assholes are "sheep".
Sanctimonious Prick.

"Dishonorable assholes?!"
See then you don't get it. Hollywood didn't get it. This is suppose to be a black comedy type of story. It's a story that has a kid purposely seeking fights so he can play superhero because he likes comic books. It's a story that has a father raising his daughter to become a superhero because he so hated his ordinary life. By changing that and giving him more reason to do what he did, takes away the discomfort you should feel if the story went the original way.

But no, you want the basic happier Hollywood type storyline,
-"Why would a father train his young child to kill and be put in such extreme dangers?"
-"Why it's for revenge, nice people. Wouldn't you like to imagine killing the person who killed your loved ones ala Death Wish? Yes, yes, suck the pap we feed you, try some of this Jonah Hex pap. Oops, it is a bit sour, that only the most undiscriminating stomachs can hold."

Sure they wanna make money and by giving the ending closest to the type that the majority of the masses will enjoy they usually will make them money, but it distorts the original intent of the storyline. It's now a borderline honorable thing Hit-Girl has been trained instead of for a fanboy's fantasy. Which is more disturbing, which is more uncomfortable? But baaa, baaaa, go back to the field where it's more comfortable with the rest.

To be fair to Trenchcoat Mafia, the face of brutally honest comic book podcasting, Nic Cage may not have had the power to change the Big Daddy story or costume design, but Edward Norton was able to become writer on stuff like Hulk, so the ability to influence a script is there.

Life is 'uncomfortable' at times. Alot of the times for many people. They go to the movies to have some fun. So why after you spent another day at your shit job, had to deal with your nagging family, maybe went to a funeral or found out that you have to have surgery, would you want go see a movie about a bunch of people who not only lose, but have no integrity. Already you have a psychotic 11 year old. (though she does only kill the baddies.)

The lesson of the comic was to demonstrate the insanity of blurring a fantasy world with the real world. But 99.9 percent of movie-going don't need that lesson, because we are sane. So instead of spending our time and money to find out that not only did evil win, but to also discover that the asshole we just rooted for was evil, is pissy experience for the audience. You may think that is funny or a "needed lesson" for the audience (if so fuck you), but it won't be funny to the filmmaker in the second week at the box office. Kickass The Movie is a megahit on DVD for a reason.

Mark Millar understood this and didn't "protest" or disassociate himself from the movie. The ending in the comics is probably one only comic book fanboys only needed to learn anyway. And I'm stretching there.

Yeah, in studio movies, where that is part of the deal. Especially if the bankability of the star is the reason the studio is green lighting the movie.

But usually when the DIRECTOR is bankrolling his own film, he is not going to let an actor change his vision of how he wants the movie to be.

If Vaughn wanted that dour ending, he would've kept it.

Besides I think Nicholas Cage WOULD play Big Daddy as portrayed in the comic if he was presented with that. It's more challenging for him, as an actor and more realistic.
But he wouldn't do the Adam West voice or chosen the generic 1989 Batman costume as a template. A comic book store owner/fanboy would've done his own shit, like in the comic. Also, BD wouldn't be in the movie as much as he was if they went with the comic book scenario.

Well Tim, at least you've said one thing I agree with in that yes, it was a good movie.

On the other hand, you accidentally used the term "A-list actors" in the same sentence as "Nic Cage".

And what is it with you trying to pick fights with poor innocent Xantes all the time?

Xantes, Hollywood does love forcing by-the-numbers, mindless, happy ending bullshit product down the public's throats, doesn't it? After all, if the idiot moviegoers aren't kept in a retarded stupor, their brains might start to work and they'll realize just how insultingly generic and condescending all of that crap is.

Vichus, I just wanna join in on the Ed Norton bashing - that Hulk movie wasn't even his lowest point: only Norton would have the balls to take it upon himself to re-write American History X, trying to make his character a sympathetic Nazi skinhead!

Tim, you accidentally described Hit Girl as "psychotic" when surely you meant to say "hot as fuck".

Also, you have way too much faith in Nicholas Cage. Am I the only one who saw Ghost Rider? And if you're right and all the idiot masses wanna suck from Hollywood's teat is brain-dead escapism, then fuck 'em!

Everything Ed Norton puts his pen to turns to gold.

You can not like Nic Cage as much as you want to, but no amount of wishing in the world will not make him not one of the hollywood elite. This man dropped cash on his own private island. He's worth at least 30 million. He also won over a lot of people who still may not know that he is a Coppola.

And oh, by the way, you've spent quite a thread speaking about him. What b or c-lister is on your tounge and in your head for that long?

August 28, 2010 7:45 PM  
Blogger XantesFire said...

I had to go, so I gave you the short version.

People are constantly complaining about the same old same old they get from Hollywood. But when a movie comes along and promises to shake it up, what happens? At the last moment it reverts to ordinary and safe because the general public doesn't want that discomfort, they won't pay for it. They don't really want something new, just the appearance of something new. They should have gone for major discomfort, the gang rape of Hit-Girl.

So they make Big Daddy into a Death Wish vigilante, because it's safer having him do Lone Wolf and Cub, seeking vengeance for the killing of his wife. That's comfortable for people. I think it's because as many put themselves in Big Daddy's shoes, telling themselves maybe they would do that, it would be so uncomfortable to find out he just did it because life is boring and he went full fanboy. And it would be so uncomfortable because it's more real than people like to think. Living their fantasies thru their kids, sports dads and beauty pageant moms, taking them to camps, taking them to the events, having them alter their bodies, putting that kind of stress on children, too close to home. But it's real.

And I wonder if I should even try to argue against you because even when it's simple logic you don't get it. In another forum which I won't name you tried to argue that having a black actress play Angel Salvadore justified your belief that she black in the comics. But what do I expect from someone who hangs out with a in denial, self hating, obvious, raging homosexual Christian who I won't name.

Angel A. Bassett

JD and I don't hang out. He lives in Orlando. I live in L.A. Those places are very far apart. But I would rather hang out with JD than an internet gangster who claims the more disturbing and fucked up things are, the better.

And the 'simple logic' shit? You don't get it. The reason Vaughn changed things up is the same reason no one here watches gay porn.(Except perhap Vichus. Did you see his lemon party pics?) Because we don't want to put ourselves into the shoes of the actors of that type of movie. The same reason the Woodsman was a blockbuster success. No one wants to put themselves in the shoes of
a different sexual orientation, a child molester or an abusive father like Big Daddy..

If the comic book Big Daddy were in the movie, people would just disconnect, because they don't see themselves as doing that. It's a betrayal. The only way it would work is if the audience knew BD's secret at the beginning.

What would happen if the movie were the exact same as the comic, with your element of Mindy being raped? Would people in the audience say to themselves:

"Oh, I get it. The exploitation of children is wrong. I am a stage mom or a sports dad and the way I use my children to live out my own dreams is just wrong. I will stop now." Those people wouldn't even go see a movie like 'Kick-Ass'.

I think actors are perfectly entitled to contribute their own ideas. As someone who does a bit of acting/modeling myself I'd hate it if I was just treated like a puppet and the director had no interest in my ideas.

The reason the ending of the Kick-Ass movie was different is that Mark Millar sold the idea simultaneously to studios and publishing companies. Personally I think he should have just made the damn comic and then see how it went.
So the movie script almost directly follows the first and second acts of the comic. After that they were on their own and had to create their own ending. Trust them to go with a typical happy Hollywood ending.
Either way, I'm happy with both the movie and the comic, I feel neither is significantly better or worse than the other.

Vichus, as fun as it is to bash Nicholas Cage, he was admittedly great in Wild at Heart so I guess there's always that at least.

Xantes, if Hit Girl had been gang-raped, Kick-Ass would've been the greatest movie ever made.

"...who claims the more disturbing and fucked up things are, the better."

Tim, in fiction anyway (movies, for example), that's usually exactly the case, though.

I seem to be attracted to surreal films like that, where there really is no point. It's all about immersing yourself in the experience.

There have been many occasions where the Doctor's actions have been questionable. What gives him the right to change the very course of history, to decide who lives and who dies?
He's more powerful than any individual has a right to be and that's what makes him fascinating.

He's not the straight-laced hero, his intentions are good but sometimes he doesn't think things through or he's just selfish.
That would make him a terrifying and horrible person in reality but it makes for great entertainment.

He's been close to having alien companions, but the problem is the make-up takes too much time and is too expensive for a weekly show.

Thoom-Sorry been busy, anyway I just realized why I "still haven't made a successful argument against my point". That's because we are sorta agreeing on the same points. You approve of them making Big Daddy into a tragic vengeance hero because more people would find that acceptable. I agree with the reasoning that they chose that ending, I just disagree that they did it because I wish for the people to be made uncomfortable, you agree that the "fanboy" ending would make them feel uncomfortable. You side with the sheeple. The same old, same old.

Who said the exploitation of children is wrong? I just want those who think they have morals that state that the exploitation of children is wrong would see the "fanboy" ending and agree with Big Daddy. Or not but it would be real.

I wasn't speaking of JD before, I was speaking of the co-host "K".

TCM-Having a girl shave her pubes isn't just for the younger that puberty appearance, it's for the younger that puberty feel and not having to deal with hair in back of your throat.

In General-Ennis should sue.

The Bettie Page look? Is that naked or dead?

Either way, Thoom'll think it's sexy.

That's what I liked about the Dr. Who comics, he would had other grandkids and alien companions. Like the shapeshifter Frobisher and there was a dwarf of some kind. Hey, that's what they should do, he should get a midget companion. The one I really want to see from the comics, the Dalek-killer, Abslom Daak.

Courtney, I know you saw Eraserhead, so you've seen at least one other Lynch movie. Then again, you have a habit claiming you've "seen" something when you've watched maybe a minute of it, so you might have just turned it off after the title card and not noticed that it was followed by "Directed by David Lynch".

Courtney & Vichus: Courtney, you're right in that the Doctor is occasionally so arrogant he borders on evil, and those are actually some of the best episodes. The Doctor's had more than a few alien companions on the show; but yeah (doubtlessly for budgetary concerns,) we're talking mostly aliens who happen to look totally human.

Xantes, thanks for bringing up the Who comics; now that you've gone so far as to bring Frobisher into this, I can point out to Courtney and Vichus that the Doctor's actually had a Cyberman companion in the comic strip, since Kroton the Cyberman travelled with him for at least a couple stories.

And of course I support the puppy-throwing girl, as should all right-thinking people. Mind you, the thought of smashing the dogs' heads in with a hammer is pretty funny, too. Good idea, Courtney! In fact, what that heroic girl should have done was horribly injure the mutts with the hammer, so that they'd already be suffering when she merrily tossed them to slowly drown. Barkbark *whine* barkbar-- glub! Hahaha goddamn I hate dogs!

I'm just glad that where this girl lives, there were no black people to blame it on, so she blamed it on her Grandmother.

I think this girl should have shipped these dogs to an American hoarder. Even if the dogs died, they could cover up the smell with piles of old TV guides.

Man, did they not waste any time yanking that video off of YouTube! Fortunately, "NewsOne" (where they hate white people as much as the Fox News Channel hates black people) seems quite happy to keep this footage of a blonde white girl drowning black puppies available for some reason. I laughed out loud when she threw the one dog in the river and happily exclaimed, "Wheee!!!!"

Videos may be banned in one place, but they never die on the internet.

PCX: The Classics Tour.

Restating-Big Daddy as a geek makes more sense and is more realistic. Who would become a hero but a crazy geek, that's the whole theme behind Kick-Ass. Big Daddy as a vigilante might make sense but would he involve his daughter that way? What would had happened if one of Castle's kids lived, you think he would dress him up and use him in the fight or drop him off at another relative while he killed criminals? Maybe Itto from Lone Wolf and Cub would but he has a different sense of honor and morals compared to a Vietnam special forces vet.

Whew! StarHawk everyday for a week is exhausting. I feel like I should do some laundry.

Wolfmother is okay for a Black Sabath type.
I do like the 90's club styles of the Presets and the Potbelleez. I will be looking up their music.

It's funny that you say that American movies make it look like North American is a film set, since some movies, even when you're suppose to be in an American city, are filmed in Australia, New Zealand, Canada, England , etc. because it's cheaper.

yumsbyannie- too bad she was a spammer, such a delicious name. Zocy (another spammer, in case it's been erased already), you can never replace yumsbyannies in my heart.

Those people would eventually go see Kick-ass because they would be wondering why they keep getting called, Big Daddy or Big Mommy, whenever they exploited their kids.

The Doctor's excuse is he's a time lord, but it's suppose to be the reason he doesn't go out there and interfere. He's a bad time lord.

Update. Ah, Puppy Throwing Girl, we miss you.

Xantes, I think I finally got around to deleting yumsbyannie's spam if anyone was wondering who you were talking about.
