Reply Subj: So, you're basing one newspaper article on the state of the whole UK film industry ?

.. I just find that a tad strange..
The Guardian is a shit newspaper and this article proves that non comicbook critics will make the MOTU comparison but that doesn't reflect how the UK film industry is, unless you do live in the UK and know about it, which I assume you don't \:\-P

    OK, I admit that during the first and very shiny images that were released, I made some passing comments about comparisons with Flash. This is from a supposedly serious, left wing UK newspaper that should maybe give the film a chance.

But it does seem we're highly adept at commenting and criticising, but not actually conceiving funding and producing films. I also read the lead item in culture (Sunday times) which also criticises and virtually condemns the (US) film industry as infantile etc.

People will point out that Brit skills, experience and expertise are frequently used and that we do make great films, e.g. The kings speech. The problem addy is that is ALL we do. As great as it might be, I'm not interested in the stutter of some non-elected wanker. Fantasy films, comic book based films and anything vaguely epic would NEVER be made here, as no one would put the money up.

So, whilst sniping can be mildly amusing (let's not hope accurate!) let's remember that this snobby, look-down-your-nose attitude is endemic within the fledgling industry and that its holywood that has the vision, commitment and scope to make this films that entertain millions in the first place.
