Avengers movie

Recommended Posts

The Nolan Batman films might be a bit more artistically-shot, but at least I could actually tell what was happening in The Avengers' fight scenes.

As a visual specialist of course he was thrown by stuff like that, however for most people it was the script and performances driving the thing. You couldn't shoot something like Avengers in the same manner as Dark Knight, it'd be completely wrong for it.

You're sort of proving my point there, K-Dubs.

I was referring to how the action scenes were shot, not the overall product. But why let my actual words get in the way of internet rivalry?!

"X may do this, but at least Y does this". That's pretty much what I was referring to.

And an internet rivalry suggests we're competing over something, which is hardly the case.

I guess my thing is that for the cinematographer of a movie like the Dark Knight trilogy to call Avengers' cinematography "appalling" is a dick move, especially considering he's not above reproach himself.

What I'm getting out of that article is that the cinematographers are of two different schools of thought on cinematography. (Though, Avengers DID use a lot of dutch angles.)

Why would he expect Avengers to be different or daring than other blockbusters?

Personally, Pfister's done some fucking incredible work, but DKR is not something to brag about. It's easily the most jumbled and least consistent of Nolan's Bat-films and a lot of the problem has to do with visual continuity.

TDK was a piece of genius in that aspect. Shame it couldn't be carried through.

On the other hand, it's not like this guy's out tearing down the Avengers on a press run. He was in a classroom and likely asked about the film by a student. More power to him. You could learn from worse.
