I like his Morgan Freeman as Flash, though the story he was referring to, Little Black Sambo, was the subject of much controversy when it was released in 1899 because the boy on the cover was depicted as a black kid with an afro and big lips, and apparently "sambo" is a racial slur for black people. I did some research (Wikipedia).
I can only say that Bass' JSA movie is the best movie in the history of ever-everness.
Its not over yet.
The Round is over on Tuesday, Votes Tallied Wednesday, and Winner announced Thursday.
I found the voting in this really difficult.
Also, I was amazed there were only four entries. I thought we had many more, but that I think is a testament to how good everyone's entries were.
I felt Compound's cast works on paper better than it would on film. I don't think the Alan Arkin-Anthony Hopkins-Harvey Kietal dynamic opposite Rip Torn would actually work too well.
I thought Tog's cast was particularly brilliant in Jeremy Irons, Lawrence Fishburne, and Russel Crowe (the last is particularly brilliant). I felt though, the problem with his cast was the main trio (DeNiro with Rourke and Sutherland doesn't work for me) and he didn't cast a villain, which makes it hard for me to imagine the climax of the film.
And DSF's cast I felt was too Buffy-orientated (Faith, Dawn, AND, Buffy?) and I think Al Pacino is almost always a mistake - but the rest of his cast was absolutely superb.
In the end I went for DSF (PM'd Bluebeast) simply because I feel the heart of the film will be the trio versus whatever villain (Savage, Mordru), and DSF I think had the best cast on that level of the three.
But damn, I didn't care for the JSA before this thread; now I want a movie. These were all fantastic entries in my opinion.
I WAS ROBBED! I'm so the best there's ever been at this game!
I knew I should've resigned undefeated.
Real men cry tears of bitterness. :cry:
Great dreamcasting round guys, well done Bluebeast on the topic!
