>Mutant and proud!
>Remains in human form for most of her time onscreen
Romjin got serious health issues playing Mystique because of the latex/makeup, and it's also the reason Cummings wouldn't return as Nightcrawler.
Supposedly the newer version isn't as bad though.
Still, if Fox wasn't cheap as fuck they'd make a version that also doesn't look worse than X1.
>Remains in human form for most of her time onscreen
What is the mutant character Mystique for $400, Alex?
Are you serious?
In comics, cartoons or earlier X-Men movies, she's blue like 90% of the time, and when she isn't it's not just to look like flesh-colored Mystique.
>"Women don't get paid enough in Hollywood! Equal pay for equal work!"
>"No I won't fully do my job and you can't make me!"
Hmmm... maybe that's why you don't get paid? This is why your nudes ended up all over this site Princess Cunt.
>"They say you can look like other people. Even their voice."
>"Even their voice."
>"If you can look like them, then why don't you change to look like other people all the time?"
>"Because we shouldn't have to."
You don't need lines to be a character but she wasn't much of one regardless.
>They had to completely change the character to fit Lawrence
Did they? Wasn't FC before she got big?
Maybe both casting and writing being shit is just unhappy correlation here.
Agreed. Seeing the nature of those nudes, I'm 100% convinced the only reason she gets so many roles is because she's sucking some major produce/director dick.
She's lazy as fuck but has a meteoric rise in her career. That's definitely a sign of someone sucking dick to get ahead.
Yes, it's called "being an actor" that's what you fucking do.
I wish we could have gotten this instead of that CGI abomination.
For some reason I thought her parents were also incredibly rich, but no, seems like the casting couch and the possibility that she really is a good fuck are the only things that made her famous.
The Hobbit was a tragedy in many respects.
considering how much she gets paid, i don't have much sympathy. she knew what the role would demand when she signed up for it and renewed her contracts. the only reason fox is putting up with her is because she's their biggest name star on the movie and her contract probably can't be cancelled without costing a small fortune.
if health issues are the problem as said here >>79750622 then just find ways around it. use cg to make her blue in digital touch-ups, who gives a crap? it may not look amazing but it would at least make her look like mystique and not jennifer lawrence.
>"Women arent mistreated in entertainment, theyre just being whiny bitch whores!"
>Fox wanting more of Jennifer Lawrences normal face in marketing is attributed her being a lazy whiny greedy bitchwhore
It's because Lawrence is too whiny and disproportionately influential to wear the makeup.
Romjin was more suited to the role, her Mystique was written better, and the makeup was in a completely different league of skill and artistry. Lawrence is wearing a glorified morphsuit, head makeup, and a wig, and the shade of blue is so light that she looks like a smurf.
but see with will smith it's a different story. there are plenty of times where floyd lawton doesn't have his mask on, or takes it off, or has a design that doesn't even involve a full mask.
mystique is defined by her blue skin and red hair. it's the most obvious thing about her design when you look at it in any iteration. if lawrence doesn't wanna get naked for the role then fine, there are plenty of mystique designs where she has clothes on. but ditching the blue skin and orange hair for the majority of the film is a complete cop-out.
and like the OP said, the whole point of First Class was that Mystique was no longer going to be ashamed of being a mutant and hide who she is from the world. it's a complete backpedal to have her be in human form so much.
So sad and angry about what we could have gotten instead of what was released.
If I become a billionaire, I promise you all that I'll put stupid amounts of money towards righting wrongs like this. Director wants to hire people to make five thousands sets of actual metal armor? Done. They need three more months to get the takes done well? Done. Costume and makeup department needs triple the staff in order to keep everything running smoothly? Done. Set builders want to make a town from scratch? Done. Actors too whiny for properly-done makeup? New actors.
ron perlman did that shit for free for some sick kid he'd never even met. his net worth is less than 1/3 hers.
Man, there's just something about this franchise that really feels off. I feel like the people involved in making it truly don't give a shit about the source material and that's why we still get shitty costumes, actor wanking at the expense of characters (Jlaw being pushed hard, Fassbender/McAvoy/Jackman being the only ones with substantial roles), the complete shafting of characters like Cyclops and the X-Men team being ignored in general. Stupid deaths like Emma in FC, awful castings and so on.
I don't want the franchise to go back to Marvel because I think the X-Men should have their own universe and they don't fit in the MCU, but I do wish they were made by people that actually care about the source material and are excited about the franchise. Take Deadpool for example, that movie actually feels like it was made with love for the comics. They need someone like Ryan Reynolds for this franchise too.
I just got doing the Avatar: The First Flight of Turok.
It's a Cirque De Solei show that's a prequel to Avatar. You know how they made everyone blue Navi? They had body suits, like the same material you'd use on a green screen suit, that were painted blue, the muscles painted on and only the actors face, neck and hands and feet were painted blue.
Cheap and effective. I don't see why she couldn't of done something like that. It looked great LIVE. The movie has CGI to edit after the fact.
I'm agreeing with your post, I'm just saying I've seen ways of getting the same effect for way easier and cheaper. JLaw and Fox have no fucking excuse. She's just looking for an easy phone-in role. Show up on set for a week, don't put make up on, leave and be in the bahamas next week.
Yeah, that's probably the biggest tragedy with Hobbit.
It was so rushed and Jackson had such a small deadline to meet
It's amazing they were coherent at all. Hell, I even liked the first one, and would've liked the second if they didn't throw in the chick from Ant Man.
>Take Deadpool for example, that movie actually feels like it was made with love for the comics. They need someone like Ryan Reynolds for this franchise too.
Yeah /co/ seems to be shitting on Deadpool but I've been fairly impressed with the attention to detail. Ryan Reynolds produced it so it would do the character justice. His passion alone produced a way better result.
You're right, I think it's just a job for a lot people. I've worked in this industry long enough to realize a lot of people barely give a shit about what they work on, it's just a paycheck to them. But that's why I would want it to go back to the MCU because at least they seem to care (or did pre-Avengers, it's slipping now that a bunch of people have their hands on it.)
What if our reality is just all in the mind of some old god with dementia?
Anon, that isnt a screenshot from First Class.
The point is that character development has been thrown out the window two movies later because sitting still while an army of makeup artists do the actual work is HARD.
I am livid coming to face with this bullshit. What the fuck happened to Jackson that he decided to ditch all the practical shit that made him famous? Did he have a sudden case of mental retardation?
Firstly. Jackson's always been a fan of CG. It's just that now the technology is more available and easier to work with. Secondly. There's honestly nothing wrong with quality CGI. TFA proved that just because an effect is practical doesn't automatically make it good, cheap shit is still cheap shit.
>if lawrence doesn't wanna get naked for the role then fine
I don't think that's fine. That's part of the character she agreed to play. Fuck her, who the fuck does she think she is? Oh right, she's a giant stupid cunt who harasses reporters for looking at their phone in her presence.
I never said CGI in general in bad, it's just too much and everything looks cheap and fake no matter how expensive it is. The original movies were great because they mixed CGI AND practical effects.
Dances in wolves with space. Looks good, but not nearly as good for what it cost.
Everything but the robot fighting was hot dog shit.
They can if you use modern cg with actual time, effort, and passion. Not a lot are willing to sit and work on a computer doing cg work for likely a couple months, so often people use shortcuts on the cg or use mostly practical effects to minimize the need. Understandable, but not the fault of the medium. It won't improve if you don't use, learn, and modify it. Despite this cg is still evolving to be better and better every year. I look forward to it surpassing practical effects in its availability to use well, and ability to match and surpass what we can do in reality. That'll be when shit gets interesting.
Someone really should have told that to the guys making the Warcraft movie.
>The thing that amazes me to this day is the Kelsey Grammer agreed to play Beast and took the roll seriously
In the 2000's actors had principles. Before YA and spoof movies became a thing and everything took a fucking nose dive. They still exist but it's starting to happen far and few in between where they are just getting any half good looking asshole to play the part.
Even in the comics the X-Men and the Avengers didn't really gel together very well
Why isn't Spider-Man the subject of the apparently prevalent mutant hate? Nobody normal will know that he isn't a mutant.
She's just a diva. She blew up because of hunger games and now she can afford to affect the movies production.
>No I'm not going through the make up process, I'm Jennifer Lawrence and you cant afford to lose me
Biggest reason i couldn't get in to first class.
>Mystique who is probably about 16 tries to sleep with what looks like a 27 yearold magneto.
>"i like you more as a mutant not as a human!"
>proceds to walk around the house naked.
>gets angry when pointed out that just because shes a mutant doesn't mean she's exempt from wearing cloths.
Kelsey Grammer is a b-list actor whose main pastimes are whiskey and cocaine. He takes every role seriously because if he didn't put out quality work no one would hire him. And quit acting like lazy, entitled actors are a new thing.
Deadpools X-men stuff felt so true to the comics. Every part where Wade interacted with them was fuckin gold. Even if we only saw Colossus and Negasonic.
Colossus hearing about Deadpools shenanigans on the news, immediately knowing who he is and rushing off to shut his shit down. I could see that in comic panel form.
I loved that stuff. I hope the sequel really expands on his relationship with em.
>whose main pastimes are whiskey and cocaine.
Are we supposed to act like this isn't the case for A-list actors as well?
>He takes every role seriously because if he didn't put out quality work no one would hire him.
There is a school of thought in acting that says "work is work there are no small or shitty parts" and that mentality does seem to skew older.
Most characters work better isolated. Batman is a lot stronger when he's the only one doing what he does. It makes him a lot more remarkable when Gotham isn't overflowing with superheroes. Same goes for the punisher, who works best in his own world like MAX instead of the same universe with talkign raccoons and molemen.
These Ya actors are fucking godawful and Jennifer Laurence and fucking kristen Stewart got in without any talent past a pretty fucking face. There ust used to be more people willing to give it their all instead of acting like a fucking cunt.
Are you joking? Do you really think no famous actress got by entirely on their looks before the 2010s?
Looks have been like 80% of Hollywood actresses' "talent" since forever.
I'd fuck Jennifer Lawrence so hard. My goodness. I'd use every iota of her energy up.
Have you guys never seen the Poker House? Jennifer can actually act. I don't know wtf happened to her ability to act but she can so yeah, imagine that, captain autismos.
>that one with red
Mamma mia, they had a fucking winner and they used CGI instead.
I just miss times when people who might be shit didn't just sleep walk through things. It used to be that most of the shitty actors weren't just brought out on the big screen every movie. Granted there are a lot of shit movies but movies have gotten oversaturated as fuck and with it even more people who don't care.
that word THAT WORD EVERY FUCKING PERSON I'VE KNOWN FUCKING FORGOT WHAT PLANNING MEANS GOD FUCKING DAMN IT.
I'm serious it seems like no one knows how to plan shit anymore, what the fuck is happening with this world. Why aren't people capable of using the shitty thing they have inside their cranium anymore? People who were fucking brilliant became such mindless idiots absolutely incapable of the slightest amount of forethought.
I know this is an unrelated rant but this particular word, or more specifically, people not planning, has been appearing so much for me in the last few days that I can't NOT get MAD.
>that casting choice
Yeah, the Mystique shit they pulled in these new films never sat with me
>She's giving some battle rally speech in that Apocalypse trailer
They're throwing the actual character out the window and just making her J.L with powers, it's like how I know Olivia Munn won't be able to act like an asian britbong so they'll either just make her a 'silent badass' who stares at things intensely or make her Munn with lasers
