black panther : boring formulaic marvel comics narrative, and i was really disappointed in the way the afro-futurist technology was depicted- all very gleaming, stylised and comic book-y. really struggling to find anything interesting about the whole film beyond obvious woke take.

Well, it is a superhero comic book movie. At best it did what all the decent comic movies did (i.e. nothing in the last several years), framed the story and aesthetic within the bounds established by the source material for a coherent experience. At worst it was as goofy as even the best of superhero comics (they are all fundamentally goofy and silly).

Off-topic but this is why the Sam Raimi Spider-Men were so great. They openly displayed all the goofy contradictions of their source material, in which a man who was also a spider was shown to do normal stuff but also fight crime like a spider-man. And people were like ... this is too silly, show us a more gritty, realistic man-spider hybrid. So we got Andrew Garfield doing the fucked up half-whisper line delivery he does in every film he's in, and now the inexplicably more vanilla actor who replaced him.

yes, just the reviews led me to expect something more. interesting what you say about spider-man (haven't seen those films) but there was a distinct point during the superman reboot where- having previously done stuff like orbiting the world for fun- the action suddenly came down to a much more mundane 'realistic' level- catching cars and throwing punches. i think more a formalistic thing, like the director realised that having an all-powerful cgi hero would mean an essentially boring film.
has anyone seen the older superman movies, i seem to remember one of those used more interesitng ways to get around this problem: the villain created synthetic kryptonite but his formula was slightly off, so rather than kill him it just made him really surly and disaffected (christopher reeve grew stubble and messy hair to convey this).

Very late to the Bladerunner party, but here is architecture office Barozzi Veigas original proposal which the movie uses (with approval of course) for Wallace's HQ:

EDIT: This is unfortunately not a built project, just a competition entry.

They don't use color in their visualizations to be able to focus on material and light. That's probably the best reason for doing B/W I have heard.

EDIT 2: More pictures:

I prefer the asymmetrical spaces of the competition proposal and concept art over what ended up in the movie. Changing the water (floor in the concept art) to an opening is nice.

Some guy trained a neural network on Balenciaga lookbook photos, some of the output results in this twitter thread:



This kind of thing was inevitable, but I suspect it's quite tricky to get the models right so it doesn't overfit the original outfits. Without an objective rating system for training the models you have to just trial and error tweak them for "better" results. Quite literally more art than science, which I think keeps it a bit more interesting than a lot of the style transfer neural network stuff that seems to be getting quite popular at the moment, and I suspect will be a boring gimmick quite rapidly.
