Bananas caught up with some newer films on free television* as repeats in January after not being available to see them over the december period that i did not see and once could be found in a cinema and i wondered what happened to the dialogue or words.
Example one is John Carter and is a film by Disney set on mars, it cost more than three pence, and took half of a penny. There was lots of action but no words. I had no idea what was going on although happily ever after seems to have been the ending having missed most of it.
Copyright was also a cost for Disney, although perhaps wrecking 1912 release is a longer term business decision. The mechanics of devaluing*** Edgar Rice Burroughs property perhaps are now more important with the ever extending copyright terms.
Keeping it Disney the rebooted muppets went meta, oh well.but i suppose that was sort of predictable. They made a sequel so i am sure they ended good** on that, it was dinner time again in the zoo as well so i have no idea how that ended.
Another example was avengers assemble which i also missed most of bar the last thirty minutes and also I dont know who captain america is or thor being not an american comics fan from the 1940’s that did not have a great deal of words in either.
So that’s three popular films for you. Lets say i am glad i did not purchase them in any form and i will stick to the stuff that does not even get considered for cinema release.
