He was going to be this generation's Sidney Poitier, and rank just under Denzel Washington as a black actor. He alrighty had a list of important films to his credit. He was going to be able to play non-black type roles. He was a major star. Died with class, as he seemed to live.---Steve Yohe

Steve's right that there was more to Bozeman than Black Panther. I know he played Jackie Robinson in 42 and he had a major role in a number of other films.

His impact on films was pretty big. So sad to hear about his passing.

Steve as you may know my son is a comic book guy. While you’re looking to get rid of stuff if you have any west coast avengers or the question Comics he might be interested.

Wonder Woman 1984 will be released on Christmas after all, but with a twist:

Wonder Woman 1984 is getting some really bad reviews. --- Yohe

62% from Critics on the TomatoMeter on RottenTomatoes, and a surprising 70% from Top Critics. That's well below the 93%/90% that the first got, but far off some from of the rest of the DCU:

56%/48% Man of Steel
28%/24% Batman v Superman
26%/22% Suicide Squad
93%/90% Wonder Woman
40%/23% Justice League
65%/58% Aquaman
90%/90% Shazam
78%/73% Birds of Prey
62%/70% Wonder Woman 1984

One forgets how bas those early movies were. The ratings are overly generous to Man of Steel and likely could drop if people watched it now understanding where Snyder was headed in BvS and Justice League.

I would say those rating are way too high. I watched BIRDS OF PREY on HBO & it's terrible.

Remember the reception of the Nolan Batman movies & SUPERMAN RETURNS. I loved parts of that Superman film. No matter what was wrong it was on the right track & could be fixed.

So they used to make good films..... what happened? Who is there now, that wasn't back then? I feel it's the mood & feel of the films, is it our culture or the people making them. There has been enough of them to prove they don't know what they are doing. You have to look at the movies, not just not count the money. --- Steve Yohe

DCU never really made good movies, other than the first Wonder Woman (which has pretty clunky down the stretch). Shazam was a nice little movie, but looks great compared to the rest of the mess.

I wouldn't put much in the ratings for the movies this year. It's a down year because of the pandemic, and critics are largely happy just to watch anything.

Nolan's movies weren't DCU. They were his own movies through Warner Brothers before the DCU came into being with the Man of Steel.

Why is it called THE JUSTICE LEAGUE? Did they ever arrest someone & take them to court? Where's their fucking badges? Do they have judges sitting around in their headquarters to Ok search warrants? --- Yohe

I know that. What I'm saying is dump the DCU. They don't have a clue .... they are not Marvel.----Yohe

Wonder Woman 1984 is getting a 5.6 on IMDB. These super hero movies are usually around 8 when they open....before falling back to earth. It has to be really bad. This was easy money.... a no brainer ... this was a film people wanted to see. They blew it like BATMAN vs SUPERMAN. What's wrong with them.

The first one was good until the CG ending. We agree on that. Agree with all of that.

This is the era of comic book movies, they need to get the most out of it, before things change. And at some time, it will. --- Yohe
