    Sci Fi movies... awesome!

    Except "Last Days on Mars" with Liev Schreiber (dude in Ray Donovan). D-

    One of the funniest, saddest, most interesting documentaries I've ever seen.

    Horror is a legitimate genre and is the last hope for independent film-making.
    Superhero movies are a consumer culture fad, very much like boy bands.

    Except comics and superheros are ingrained in our culture like modern mythology.

    They are our Olympian gods in a way.

    ... and have been around for decades. Film is just a new format for them. Won't get old. It's not a fad - they are just finally beginning to get it right.

    Idk man... There are a lot of good indie films - at least in my eyes - that aren't horror.

    Of course there are - but horror remains the true domain of Indie. If you scroll thru Netflix and make a list of Indie a huge % will be horror. It's the least studio controlled genre in that regard.

    I suspect the percentage of people that read superhero comics is vastly less than the folks who plop down a twenty spot on the Hollywood films..

    Probably but horror movies suck for the most part outside of a few exceptions and none are anything resembling scary past about age 7.
