Fake science vs fake mysticism
We know these powers and situations are fake. Probably, that is what we like about them. The western superheroes derive their powers from fake science – alien planets, rays of the sun, mutant genes, insect bites. While the eastern heroes derive it out of fake mysticism – spirituality, will power, meditation, intellectual realizations.

Tone Spring, Summer, Fall, and Winter

Spring myths are comedies, i.e., stories that lead from bad situations to happy endings. Shakespeare's Twelfth Night is such a story.
Summer myths are similarly utopian fantasies such as Dante's Paradiso.
Fall myths are tragedies that lead from ideal situations to disaster. Compare Hamlet, Othello, and King Lear and the movie Legends of the Fall.
Winter myths are dystopias; for example, George Orwell's 1984, Aldous Huxley's Brave New World, and Ayn Rand's novella Anthem

History of Fairy Tales

Why so many characters are orphans.From an objective perspective, it's so the characters can act without some level of agencyFrom a writing standpoint it's so it gels with the darker aspects of Grimm's Fairy Tales, Charles Dickens or Hans Christian Andersen. In order to stop this make characters in their late teens the too early twenties even thirties. 

  • First of all, Andersen's mermaid dies at the end. No Hollywood endings here.
  • The prince marries someone else.
  • The sea witch gruesomely cuts out the mermaid's tongue as part of the deal.
  • Oh yeah, and the whole point of the mermaid trying to marry the prince in the first place is to get in on his whole eternal soul thing, since mer-people lack souls and thus cannot go to heaven.

GRIMMS' FAIRY TALES INTRODUCTION: WHY SHOULD I CARE? Fairy tales are just for kids, right? Er. Kind of. When the Grimm brothers, Jacob and Wilhelm, were collecting and publishing their tales in the early 1800s, they were blazing new ground in children's literature, sure. But fairy tales have never been just for kids. Smarty-pants nobles in the French court of Louis XIV penned fairy tales as a form of entertainment and social critique. Poets and opera-writers borrowed the plots of fairy tales for their works. And if you have ever watched a sport or game where a "Cinderella" team or an underdog (come on, we've all seen Rudy) unexpectedly comes out on top, then you, dear Shmooper, have encountered the pervasive influence of fairy tales. Obviously the Grimms' tales aren't the only fairy tales out there, but they are sure as shoeshine the most influential in our culture. There's an excellent chance that if you're reading or watching a version of a fairy tale, or even something that's not a fairy tale but features a downtrodden protagonist or a wicked witch, you're treading in the Grimms' territory. You could spend years trying to track down every cultural reference to the Grimms and still not find them all. Let's face it, reading these fairy tales will make you primed and ready to understand not only modern-day princess-mania, but also the underpinnings of young adult literature, fantasy and science fiction, cinema (not just cartoons), and gender roles. And then you'll live awesomely ever after. Works Cited: Shmoop Editorial Team. "Grimms' Fairy Tales." Shmoop. Shmoop University, Inc., 11 Nov. 2008. Web. 21 Sep. 2017.

Gritty is so real..But Dark is always better....No...Edgy....

Down In A Hole – Geek Culture’s Obsession With “Grim, Gritty, And Grounded”  Irony and cynicism have the same issues. To make it 'more real' let's be A) dramatic cynical. B) Misanthropic. C) Call everything positive naive. Being called overrated is overrated. The irony will lose its impact.

Uncle, They want realism...But I'm going to create some arbitrary magic metal that poisons and kills you...

Know......What you want is verisimilitude.

Steven Spielberg and Quentin Tarantino interpretation War 

There's nothing actively wrong with Steven Spielberg's productions they are just more high-concept. they're just not something like Clockwork Orange Triumph of the Will Connections.a constant example of a low concept is something like Pulp Fiction only because it wanders around in the characters heads. Something like a  Disney or Hayao Miyazaki a film even though it's very whimsical has a clear concise plot. Great Geek Debates: Disney Princesses vs. Hayao Miyazaki.  Like Miyazaki  Spielberg is optimistic. Similar to 'zombie sitcom' there will be 'zombie gritty'. The Simpsons  The Simpsons: An Imperfect Ideal Family already did the family is bad what's after that...McBain...37 Simpsons Movie Remakes Better Than The Originals


 John Ford to Akira Kurosawa  15 Great Movies That Influenced Quentin Tarantino this list cites The Searchers   Spielberg and Tarantino list this as inspirations so many others... The Men With No Name: Yojimbo vs. A Fistful of Dollars and The Magnificent Seven(s) & Seven Samurai: Similarities & Differences. Same for Sergio Leone. 

Tarantino uses Blaxploitation Spaghetti Westerns, and Grindhouse. Quentin, Takes what Francois Truffaut terms as psychological realism out for a walk. The other end is Steven Spielberg's Noir Criminal.

Robert Wise Effect Covers Wise's World War Two films and Christianity selected films by Robert Wise has his impact on science fiction and film in general. The Day the Earth Stood Still and Pinocchio were two inspirations for Spielberg which influences AI   Artificial Intelligence (2001) – Transhumanist Fairy Tale. Carlo Lorenzini  1826-1890 Was mean-spirited to kids Disney Only wanted to tone it down. The Horrifying Story Of Pinocchio

The Rolling Stone Interview: Stanley Kubrick in 1987 Kubrick mulls over Full Metal Jacket, Dr. Strangelove or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb, Full Metal Jacket is based on Gustav Hasford's book The Short-Timers last Officer and a Gentleman.  He brings up sentimentality.

Director Paul Verhoeven Starship Troopers (1997) and RoboCop (1987) are blatant propaganda camp film. Where .Goku is a Christ Figure RoboCop has it's own in Murphy.

The scene opens on a lone rider silhouetted against the backdrop of a vast and harsh wilderness. The contrast between man and nature makes the rider appear small and vulnerable. As he rides off into the distance, it seems that it might take him years to find what he’s searching for…

I had a guilty conscience. In my films, I championed the cause of the gentle, the poor, the downtrodden. Yet I had begun to live like the Aga Khan. The curse of Hollywood is big money. It comes so fast it breeds and imposes its own mores, not of wealth, but of ostentation and phony status.

Studio Ghibli and Yasujiro Ozu are similar in the fact that they film nature and the mundane.Where Studio Ghibli or perhaps Hayao Miyazaki, in particular, Renders nature with Fantasy elements.  Yasujiro Ozu and the enigmatic art of the ‘pillow shot’.' Wes Anderson uses four to five main colors in a scene The variation light dark and medium tones. Anderson's color choices are like Silver Age Comics Color. Flat and symmetrical shots to make the film novel like aesthetic. Wes deals father-son relationships, how Yasujiro Ozu deals with family dynamics.
