A while back Stephen Dorff blasphemed against contemporary motion picture mania by saying that comic book movies are now ‘garbage’ and were ’embarrassing’. Now Dorff has taken aim at comic book movies again, in a talk with The Daily Beast:
“Were more like when I started when we made ‘Blade,’ or the few that have been decent over the years, like when Nolan did ‘The Dark Knight’ and reinvented Batman from Tim Burton.
All this other garbage is just embarrassing, you know what I mean? I mean, God bless them, they’re making a bunch of money, but their movies suck [laughs]. And nobody’s going to remember them. Nobody’s remembering ‘Black Adam’ at the end of the day. I didn’t even see that movie, it looked so bad.”
Dorff, who helped make comic book movies cool before they turned to shit with Wesley Snipes in Blade, also does not have high hopes for the reboot of that movie.
Marvel is used to me trashing them anyway. How’s that PG ‘Blade’ movie going for you, that can’t get a director? [laughs] Because anybody who goes there is going to be laughed at by everyone, because we already did it and made it the best. There’s no Steve Norrington out there.”
I think that honestly, we’re beyond even laughing. Does anyone even care enough anymore to laugh or even get upset?
