“Venom”: back in the nineties

The genre of motion picture comics continues to gain popularity, but in recent years it seems Marvel and its disney stories have virtually become monopolists in this market. Yes, DC is slowly winning back a place in the sun among the series, but in full meter with the marvel pipeline, it seems, there is little that can be compared. And the Sony company, having thought strategically, tries to join this conveyor, for a start – by means of “venom”(“Venom”).

A long time ago, Sony bought Marvel rights to everything related to “spider-Man” as a character, including the villains who got in his way. One of these villains (although it is more correct to call him an antihero) was venom-symbiote, which even lit up in the last “spider-Man” from Sam Raimi.Bearing in mind, apparently, the success of the brutal Fox releases – “Deadpool” and ” Logan — – Sony decided to bet on blood. However, still inscribed it in the framework of the rating PG-13, so as not to lose a profitable audience in the form of teenagers. Continue reading

“Detective Pikachu”: the highest quality digital fur

Video game movies are usually unlucky. The writers are struggling to connect what is happening in the games sur with the real world and real logic, because of what they have a complete mess. The creators of “Detective Pikachu” (Detective Pikachu) went the other way — they drew a completely new, almost detached from our world and did not try to cram into it the whole history of a huge franchise. And so they succeeded.

Everything in “Detective Pikachu”, except, perhaps, a couple of people and a few objects-digital, unreal, lovingly drawn by animators to the last hair, to the smallest scratch on the building. Most often, studios offer to put digital animals in a real environment, but in “Detective Pikachu” the environment was drawn for these very animals, placing people in it. Continue reading

“Spider-man: across the universes”: a movie comic in the truest sense

The franchise “spider-Man” began its life in the sixties of the last century and for such a considerable period has grown seriously. If all began with the story of Peter Parker, then in the future radioactive spiders bit a variety of people and inhumans in parallel, restarted and simply alternative universes. It is about the diversity of spider-men and tells “spider-Man: through the universes” (Spider-man: Into the Spider-verse).

In comics major publications-DC and Marvel-the notion of parallel and alternative universes there is very long. So long ago that it is difficult to say which of the universes is still original. These universes differ from each other slightly sometimes, just one detail — for example, the sex of the character, and in other cases the difference is visible in everything.Peter Parker and spider-Man fell in love with the public, and so versions of the creature bitten by a radioactive spider began to multiply and multiply.
