Saw this blog article Fictional Film Words and thought it would make a good thread here.
One the major elements that makes or breaks a movie or TV show for me is how convincingly they create the reality of the universe the action is taking place in.
I can suspend my disbelief for major plot devices (faster than light travel? teleporters? No problem!) but if you skimp on the little details, I’ll nitpick your film to death. For instance, I like the look and feel of Batman: Batman Begins (extreme dystopian city with a monorail!) much more than Batman: The Dark Knight (plain boring old Chicago), even though the latter is the better movie (IMHO). The fact that the City has changed so significantly between the two movies also bugs the crap out of me. I guess Wayne Towers got demolished at some point?
Speaking of the Batman series, I think being a planner in Gotham might be pretty...interesting.
So, what would be your preferred film universe to spend a day/week/lifetime in? Besides the world of “Horny Pizza Delivery Girls” or “Naughty Nurses 3”, that is.
