Yup. I nailed it. Great Avengers Film. Might be the best. Not sure how anyone could call it a Cap film at heart.

I know it's hard for you to wrap your head around, but a movie can be a really good romp and still not meet expectations. It didn't live up to the potential that Winter Soldier laid out and felt very much like Avengers 2.5. I fail to see how anyone could say otherwise. Spider-man turned out to be a really good take on the character, but about as shoe-horned into the plot as he could be. It's widely known he was added as a script re-write after the deal was made and it showed. Black Panther was awesome and I am looking forward to his solo film, but didn't really need to be in this film. The action sequences were top notch hero punching heroes. Some of the best put to film for a comic movie. Did the "civil war" theme far better then the comic event did. God that series was awful.

So yes, as I have been saying for some time it turned out to be a fantastic Avengers film. Yet by no means lived up the expectations WS created. I'd give it four out of five stars. Feel free to reply with another gif.

I think what baffles me is that you can't wrap your mind around the fact that people do not have to be a fucking moron to think the movie is a Cap film.

But hey this is your typical "it is only a spoiler if I deem it a spoiler" schtick so I am not surprised.


ohh wait, here's the gif

Neo's ranking this with GotG which I thought was terrible kinda frightens me for CW. Cap 1 and WS were great though so I'm hopeful and should see it this weekend.

Well argued as always.

If you want to believe the film was a "Cap film at heart" go right ahead and continue to do so. As I have said before, making that assertion is about as logical as saying X-Men 2 was a Wolverine film.

You can keep harping on the spoiler thing if you want. It's not like I didn't admit to it being a mistake on my part and fix it or anything. sarcasm.gif

I'd rank this above GoTG mainly because I believe it will be far more re-watchable then GoTG was. The jokes that gave GoTG so much of it's charm quickly start to feel old and you begin to notice how paper thin the plot is after seeing it a few times.

I really see a reason to waste time arguing with you when it's pretty much going to end with "I say so and you're wrong" anyways.

You want to think that think others have no right to think otherwise and are just damn morons to disagree then fine, again I see no reason to argue with that kind of thinking.


Anyways....


Apocalypse embargo lifts today at 2pm PST


Simon Kinberg has supposedly confirmed that the next XMen film will be set in the 90s.


Also Singer on Deadpool crossing over...

Quote:
Director Bryan Singer was quizzed on whether the Merc with a mouth would be meeting up with the X-Men onscreen any time soon. “If you take a character as irreverent and meta as Deadpool and connect him to something as grounded and serious as X-Men, you have to do it carefully and gently,” said Singer. “When you drop them all in together it can be a disaster. That has to be done delicately, but there’s plenty of room to do it.”

When asked if he has any plans to part with the franchise, Singer was rather enthused to stick around. “When you spend nearly two decades in a universe, to simply say, ‘I’m done,’ or, ‘I’m going to abandon it,’ just wouldn’t make sense to me,” he said.“I’m very connected to this universe and a lot of these actors, and also the characters, whomever plays them. So never say never.”

The franchise is also continuing to expand with more characters and spin-off films, including a second Deadpool film, a third Wolverine film, New Mutants and Gambit in various stages of production. “It’s every bit as large," said Singer "And now that we’ve altered the timeline [with 2014’s X-Men: Days of Future Past], there are endless possibilities."


Kinberg also claims Wolverine 3 has started filming and confirms it's R-rating...

Quote:
Following his expected cameo in Bryan Singer's highly anticipated X-Men: Apocalypse, long-time franchise star Hugh Jackman will be seen next for the presumably final time in his third solo Wolverine outing, which, according to producer Simon Kinberg, has already started filming. Kinberg doesn't divulge too much, but does promise we'll be seeing Wolverine like we've never seen him before: “It’s a very radical, bold, different Wolverine than you’ve ever seen in any of these movies.”

Speaking with Kinberg at the X-Men: Apocalypse press junket in London, Collider, while unable to gain confirmation on Patrick Stewart's involvement, did manage to confirm a few early rumors that claimed the film would be rated-R and set in the future, which judging by the rough description of the film's tone, should make for a perfect fit: “I’m not sure what I’m allowed to say about that. I will agree with you that Patrick Stewart was rumored to be a part of that film. It takes place in the future, and as you and others have reported, it is an R-rated movie. It’s violent, it’s kind of like a western in its tone. It’s just a very cool, different film.”

A violent western starring Wolverine and directed by James Mangold, the man who helmed the excellent 3:10 To Yuma?

Pretty much confirms the rumor that it's based on Old Man Logan. Rated R or not i'm not really sure how they can pull that one off considering:

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
One of the key plot points is you find out Logan was tricked into slaughtering all the other X-Men.

Will Fox be ok with showing that on screen? I'm not really sure.

So . . . is Ant Man worth renting?
I am not really excited about it, because "who cares" but the consensus is "it's great" then I don't mind renting it.

I think AntMan is worth a viewing, I found fun and entertaining even just to see the power itself. They also have AntMan & Wasp sequel coming so it wouldn't hurt to get a head start on it now or just wait til it airs on premium channels this year if you have access to that.

After Deadpools success, I don't think they'll be shy about it but they probably will just loosely adapt it.

With that said, it is also Jackmans last run was Wolvy so it would be nice that they go all out on a blaze of glory than just having another underwhelming film.
post #3028 of 3808
Yes worth renting. Ant-Man is pretty much a perfect example of a film I would label a "rental." See it once, be glad you did and move on.

After my post I was thinking they could handle the scene pretty much like it was in the comic and get away with it.

After all you only see him kill "bad guys." You see what he sees, not what is really happening

You are right that it would have to be a loose adaptation. After-all many of the main characters like Hulk and Red Skull are not available for use. I think it's as good a Wolverine story as any to have be his final in the role.

Guardians of the Galaxy is my "favourite" MCU film but that doesn't necessarily make it the "best" if you know what I mean. I really enjoyed the wacky characters, the banter, the set pieces, the soundtrack, etc. It felt like the essence of comic books come to life. Those are all personal preferences.

Other posters will be quick to champion Iron Man and Captain America: Winter Soldier as superior films than GotG and I ain't mad at that.

Civil War, to me, is a nice combination of the charming zaniness of Guardians and the grounded sensibilities of the Cap franchise. That's just my take.
