In The Spirit of Art

07.31.2008by:
Although THE SPIRIT has been receiving bad buzz since its less than stellar performance at Comic Con, one canít help but applaud the filmís marketing campaign, which is artfully done to say the least. The Spirit Art School Program is a partnership between Lionsgate and nine prestigious art schools in The States that will see the creation of 9 aesthetically unique posters as a lead up to the film. The first is done by some students from the Art Institute of California-San Diego and good god is it ever awesome. The blend of gothic, pop art seems to work in tow with everything else Iíve seen of the film and I can only look forward to feasting on what the other eight schools have to offer.

Extra Tidbit: I really, really hope this movie doesn't suck.

Miller has one directing credit before this: Sin City.

So of course you don't remember a movie by him sucking.

This poster is awesome and all...but an Art Institute? Are you joking? Most of the schools they got for this program are AIs. That's lame. What about SCAD, RISD, SVA, or Ringling? Hell, Eisner taught at SVA so that would make the most sense.

I wish SCAD would have been on the list, cause I would like to collaborate on one of these.

You shouldnt doubt the power of the Miller

I don't remember a movie by frank miller sucking. I think its okay to be skeptical about a movie but you shouldn't say anything too rash until you have seen it. I personally think this movie will be very entertaining, it wont be as successful as TDK but whatever. And on the Samuel L. Jackson issue, sure he looks like bobo's cousin from Compton, but he is an extremely talented actor. I think the fact that he is a clown will be pushed out when we see his acting in this one.

From what I have seen so far this is not going to be good! I might be wrong and hopefully I am, but it just seems like it is heading in the wrong direction.

Samuel L Jackson looks like a clown! Not a menacing clown like the Joker but a bombastic circus idiot!

meh...

I was really hopin this was going to be good, but the trailer was awful. As stylish as you make a movie, it cant cover bad dialogue and mediocre acting.

Hopefully I end up being wrong....

TDK did aise the bar but I am also open to other visions and interpretations from artists. Besides, This is FRANK MILLER, he is one of the reasons why we had a TDK in the first place. He started the trend of taking an iconic character and reinvigorating him with real substance. Trust the MILLER

I don't think it will suck but TDK has risen the bar for movies like this. We want substance with our style! Thats why this is getting bad buzz.
