… while the creator has only begun to sketch ideas, it's expected to be a darker take, with many of Miller's signature visual elements and themes, such as corruption and redemption.The character, a 20th century Rip Van Winkle who wakes up after a five-century nap, began life in the 1928 Philip Francis Nowlan novella "Armageddon 2419 A.D."

I hope The Spirit is a huge bomb so this will never happen. While I enjoyed Sin City because it was different and liked Year One, the rest of his work is either utter shit or vastly overrated. It's bad enough it looks like he's going to make a mockery of The Spirit, one of my favorite Golden Age characters, but now another great genre icon will be ruined so we'll have to wait another 30 years for a "reboot". What's next, The Shadow?
Dec. 19, 2008, 1:07 a.m. CST
Look, I realize that "The Spirit" may very well suck, but no one around here has seen it and opinions are being formed based on a couple of short clips and sketchy reviews. At least wait until the movie hits the theater before going into full bash mode.

Frank could easily be classified as a one-trick-pony, but hell. He does what he does in his own inimitable fashion, and that's totally fine with me. I'm looking forward to this, I just wish that he would do more comics instead. (At least, that's my opinion until I see The Spirit).

Hey, I whacked it to Ms. Gray as much as the next guy, but she's getting a bit long in the tooth. Rest assured, one thing Miller will get right is casting a hottie as Wilma Deering.

I like Frank Miller. I like his work in comics. His film work, though, leaves much to be desired. I can just see this being yet another green screen snore fest. I'm not a huge fan of the Sin City movie, though I can respect how the style to bring it to the screen was different and fitting. But now we've got Sin City 2, er, The Spirit with the same style, more ugly inkblot shadowing, torpid dialogue and hammy acting. (And yes, I know an actual Sin City 2 is in the offing as well.) I can just see them applying this same overworn-its-welcome style to Buck Rogers, especially if it's going to be a darker take. Already bored with it.

Doesn'y Hollywood have a clue. The only reason Miller is directing is that Robert Rodriguez made him look good with a co-director credit for SIN CITY and Zack Snyder's 300 was a panel-to-panel hit at the B.O. It doesn't prove Miller is an auteur.
Dec. 19, 2008, 4:30 a.m. CST

THE SPIRIT will probably do moderately well on opening week; running off the popularity of the awesome SIN CITY and the mind-numbingly awful (though highly successful) 300 Butch Gay Spartans. It will drop through the floor after that, though. So, we'll see if this actually happens, or if Frank will have to go back to pretending its still 1986 and he still knows how to write comics. (Curiously, I actually think his artwork has gotten better while his writing has become unfathomably worse.)

And not really a terrific writer, at least for the past decade or so. So help me if he turns Buck Rogers into some twisted erotic noir... I know we can't pass judgment on the guy just yet, but I don't think Miller is capable of telling a straight-up adventure story, which is what fans are going to expect. No one WANTS to watch B. R. filtered through Miller's f-ed up sensibilities, but it's a safe bet that that's what we're going to get.

or "edgy". Frank Miller has no business bringing his "trademark" anything to Buck Rogers.

I have noticed over the years that men who wear hats all the time have an overrated view of themselves. Miller probably thinks he is a really good movie director. He probably thinks that THE SPIRIT is one of the best movies ever made. If he has all ready signed the deal for BUCK ROGERS, then the studio needs to just pay him off and hire another writer/director. They need to hire someone who knows what the fuck they are doing.

Just remember, the fewer of you that go see The Spirit around Christmas, the less chance this movie has of being made. Just don't go see it.

Now comic book wise I dig you man, even that batshit crazy take of Batman your writing in All Star Batman right now, but, Buck friggin Rogers is my childhood man. Seeing a "dark" version of it with Sin City-type cinematography??? Please-God-NO.

This ain't gonna happen. Funny thing is - for someone who railed against the corrupt creatively bankrupt studio system, he can't seem to create anything original.

"The pleasure was all mine." The TV show got pretty retarded at the end, but man, I did love it for a while. And Wilma! Shit, that skin-tight, white flight-outfit of hers is one of the iconic, hot costumes of sci-fi, right up there with Leia's gold bikini, IMHO. And I forgot that Mel Blanc did Twiki's voice. As to Miller working on this: oh, shit! Perhaps his "vision" just doesn't translate to film. I don't know what it is, but I'm definitely not looking forward to seeing The Spirit.

I'm glad that Frank got to make his 'The Spirit' film a reality, but I'm far more excited to see him tackle this character, to be honest about it. Also, all y'all geeks are assuming an awful lot about our own opinions. A large portion of the film going world does not give one turds worth of consideration to the AICN TalkBalks when deciding whether or not to see a film. I've had several friends and family members ask me what's up with 'The Spirit' because they think it looks, "cool".

Hopefully he'll die of a coke overdose before production starts. Sometimes ya really NEED fate to intervene.

better still, fuck spielberg and will smith for wanting to remake oldboy! "we're going to the original novel" my ass! <p> for geeks who constantly proclaim to be champions of artists with visions, and not hacks, you guys are really showing it. yes, keep putting ratner and his ilks in business. i heard conan is coming. no doubt paul anderson is busy sabotaging another geek property, as usual. <p> an artist like miller try his hands at directing, and you guys never give him a fucking chance. fuck miller? oh, but you love nolan's TDK. you only watched it 12 times in theater and is already waiting in line for the dvd! yeah fuck the guy who made it happen.

before he turned into one of the world's the greatest filmmakers. ditto terry gilliam. kurosawa was a painter. hitchcock was a set designer. tarantino worked as video store clerk. you think they gave a shit when someone told them to stick to their dayjobs and leave film directing to someone else? <p> miller is an artist. and that's the O-N-L-Y reason you need to go into directing. training is nothing. just look at the entire paul anderson's shitty filmography. how much training does he need before he can make a watchable film? miller already directed half of sincity. and it IS a great film, no matter how your shitty taste might let you believe otherwise.

Miller only loves killing and death. And more killing. And blood and death. Oh, yeah, and tits. Great guy to adapt fun retro sci-fi - "oooo, let's take Buck Rogers make it dark like all his other crap." I think I'll go and make my own Buck Rogers film. I'll use a Fisher Price camera and film Lego toys. Guaranteed it will be more inspired, witty and fatihful to the original material than anything that Miller could make.

Why not Martha Washington? She would translate nicely to the big screen. …Just please don’t go all “Tank Girl” on us. For what it’s worth, I still have faith in Mr. Miller and I’ll be at the 12:01 showing for the next Buck Rodgers.
