Not that I think it beats the Claremont/Byrne story, but as far as comic movies go, I think it's tops. Better than just about any Marvel Studios outing IMO, barring maybe Daredevil, which I am really loving so far.

Yup, one should not judge these movies in terms of how accurate they are to the original story, because they'd all suffer if we do.

X-Men 2 wasn't true to the source story either, but still worked and many still hold it in high regard.

Anyway.

X-Men: DOFP - 8.5/10

I thought it was great, and I'm glad the sequel is getting a true super villain... I just hope he's somewhat in vein of the comicbook counterpart.

Rocky IV - 8/10

I really, really hated that Apollo got killed off. Seemed very unnecessary and forced, especially since Mickey died in III. But it's my favorite after I & II.

Yeah I like the montage in it. It's interesting to see Drago in the controlled workout environment, using machines mostly. While Rocky is using mostly improvised equipment, but in all honesty he'd be better off in a regular gym. But Sly was trying to show him get tougher than ever I guess.

Yeah I love it. I always saw it as a symbolic gesture of nature vs nurture or man vs machine. Ironic to see that the foreign man took advantage of the land of the enemy.

He is probably in the best shape in that one. Though like you said, that Creed death was uncalled for. I also know I hate Paulie the most in this cause of the end.

The montage is so cheesy, but I love it. The disparity could not be more pronounced. Drago is precise, regimented and clinical (not to mention a juicer), Rocky is old school, earthy and elemental. FFS, he literally lifts his loved ones in a wagon, outlasts the Soviets chasing him and scales a mountain. It's the Miracle on Ice 2.0! DRAAAGOOOOO!!!!! :lol

Wasn't Apollo too old and too slow to still be fighting, especially a killing machine like Drago? He was also cocky and didn't take Drago seriously.

And Rocky could take a punch better than just about anybody, including Homer Simpson. :lol

To me, he's had a very weird character arc psychologically.

Rocky - Retarded

Rocky II - Retarded

Rocky III - Smarter

Rocky IV - Smarter, but kinda retarded at the same time

Rocky V - Back to full retarded. Understandably, as you pointed out :lol

Rocky VI - Smarter again

Stallone portrayed him a different way every movie, to me anyway.

Deckard
04-15-2015, 06:36 AM
I kinda disagree.

The first few seasons are great but at some point, he(the character) becomes such a pretentious d-bag it's just not funny and annoying. Like the one where he spends an entire episode trying to figure out why Monk doesn't like him and just can't process the idea that he's not liked. I found the last few seasons were a lot tougher to get through and the only reason I did was because of the side characters. Like Niles became more likable as he got married and became normal where as Frasier just keeps getting more and more awkward.

VintijDroidGutzz
04-15-2015, 07:27 AM
I think that's what's so endearing about Frasier though; his job is to help people fix their lives, but he's so hopeless with his own. :lol

The other day, I watched the episode where Lileth & Niles 'cross the line'.. man Bebe Newirth in her prime was spectacular. :love

I enjoyed Frasier but gave up towards the last couple of seasons. One thing that prompted me to stop was that they had like two or three episodes that were pretty much the exact same story line--something about the group all staying in a cabin or a hotel or some big house and everyone was swapping rooms or sneaking in to each other's rooms. Once they started recycling stories that blatantly, I had to give up.

Too bad because I really did like the show!

Deckard
04-15-2015, 08:47 AM
The problem I had was Frasier of Cheers and the opening few seasons of "Frasier" is a regular guy. He hangs out in a ****** run down dive bar most of his life. Just some normal corner cafe coffee house.

He slowly becomes much more of a high-class elite type person as the show progresses, but a reason is never clear. (aside from Kelsy making bank in real life from the show's success) He doesn't get some huge break and is always struggling with his radio show's success(even fired) but at some point, he decides he's better than most people.

From that point on, he slowly becomes more and more awkward until the regular guy personality is totally phased out and he can't even understand regular people anymore. Literally, like when he goes to Norm's retirement or Ted comes to visit, he can't even get along with them anymore because his shtick becomes this guy who's 100 percent disconnected. He's almost like a space alien trying to understand human behavior instead of a shrink. It goes on for too long (not just a phase for the character to get over) and just becomes frustrating. Like if Rick on Walking Dead never shook his visions and yelling at people for no reason, you'd eventually start screaming at the screen "OK, we get it already!" The show ended with him having that same attitude and I thought it was really bizarre, as if he'd learned nothing.

I know what you mean. When they stay at the hotel on their dates and go back to the apartment and have to sneak around. There's at least 2 episodes that are just literally hide and seek in Nile's apartment. With the botched proposal or when the guy died at the dinner party. It's strange that it became so formulaic at a point when irl the show was making more money than ever before.

Fair enough criticism I suppose. I just find his high-class elite type character more entertaining to watch than the regular guy from Cheers. I was too young to understand Cheers as it aired and didn't think much about it. I started watching Frasier regularly when I was in 5th grade or so and by that point of the show's run the character had already drastically changed. That's the character I fell in love with. So to me, Cheers (and to a lesser extend the first season of Frasier) are awkward because the character doesn't seem right to me.

The Iceman: 6.5/10

Decent movie, but nothing to write home about. Was kind of hard to watch in some scenes. From what little I've heard about this guy outside of the film, his relationship with his wife and family may have been portrayed as a bit rosier they should have been, but it made him seem more interesting as a character to have this extreme double life of fairly solid family man on the one hand, and brutal, amoral killer on the other. I didn't recognize Chris Evans until he shaved.

I'm a huge fan of the comic and for the most part loved the animated version.

I'd probably dock it a few points for some nitpicks (clearly low animation budget, although they do the absolute best with it that they can; severe lack of Batman inner monologue meaning some of the best lines from the comic are lost; changes a few details for the worse, i.e. Batman not having the magnum at the fairground), but the awesome soundtrack and Peter Weller's performance mostly make up for that.

Clearly the team that put this together had a lot of love for the source material, and how they translated certain sequences from panels to moving images is just brilliantly done. Honestly a better film than Dark Knight Rises. Did I mention how awesome the soundtrack is? :lol

I think the film also did a few things better than the comic, like Superman's intro in part 2. I thought that whole scene was better in the film than in the comic.

The book also reveals Crowe's initial reluctance when asked by director Ridley Scott to utter what turned out to be Gladiator's most enduring line of dialogue: "And I will have my vengeance, in this life or the next." Crowe was apparently convinced it was an overwrought sentence, but eventually persuaded to play ball following multiple takes. After the scene in question wrapped, he was said to have told Scott: "It was ****, but I'm the greatest actor in the world and I can make even **** sound good."

He did have director Frank Oz leave the set because he wouldn't work with him in the room.

My personal favourite of the Brando stories is his work on The Island of Doctor Moreau... he knew the film would be a flop and decided to have some fun with it. So he demanded that he have his own personal dwarf, wear a bucket on his head and have his lines fed to him through a radio earpiece.

The best way to put it is to say that it is utterly forgettable, but immensely enjoyable when you're watching it. It was just fun to watch Depp be such a poncey scoundrel. The interactions between him and Martland, Johanna and Jock (Strapp) were entertaining.
Goldblum was criminally underused, Munn is a horrible actress even with her small, safe handful of lines. But at one point I realized I was watching a chase scene involving 2 Avengers (more or less), an X-Man and the smoothest pirate to ever penetrate the Kraken, and it was kind of bizarre. :lol

I also got a real Temple of Doom vibe from the opening in the restaurant making the deal with Fang.

Agreed. It's nice to see humanized Tony and to show how he did want to make a differencd. Still snarky but not overly done. Suits are still cool and the fight scene was fun.

So funny to see several good reviews for Mordecai considering it was one of the biggest flops of the year, and probably the biggest flop in Depp's career! Just goes to show you, you have to judge everything for yourself.

As far as Crowe goes, I have no doubt he is a giant douche with a raging temper, but I have to give him credit for the threat to kill the producer. He did that because the producer would not pay his assistant what he considered to be a fair wage. That's actually pretty good of him, in a demented sort of way. And as far as his saying that he's the best actor for making a bad line sound good, well, that's kinda also true, isn't it? I think you just have to see a bad actor deliver bad lines to appreciate how good a "good" actor is.

The Incredible Hulk - 7.85/10

I have to admit that I personally loved this movie and would have given it a 8.5 or 9 out of 10, however, I must admit that I was a bit ignorant before.

After watching this movie again, I realized that, unlike Iron Man; the CGI did not age well. I honestly thought this was the best Hulk design even after seeing Avengers. It seemed to be the right musculature and physique. Yet, I must admit that after seeing it again, Hulk looked too much like an Abercrombie model. I now have to agree that Avengers 1 may be the best Hulk design.

As for more, I liked Norton, I feel he did a great job portraying Banner. He had a good nature to him, someone trying to protect others by being scared of what he is. Ruffalo has too much of a depressed Banner attitude. Though Ruffalo has his moments, it does seem a bit more sad. As for other characters, I loved Tyler as Betty. I think she did a wonderful job, and is adorable; while being much better than Connelly, however Connelly was sexier tbh. Hurt was a good General Ross, and didn't mind his scenes. Tim Roth seemed like an absolute terrible choice and especially after Bridge's Stane, didn't do so well as the second MCU villain. He was definitely too old looking, hell he looked old in Reservoir Dogs and that was 14 years earlier! :horror

Despite Roth (who I think is a phenomenal actor, but poor choice in this film), I have to say that this has one of the better actions and battle sequences in the MCU. I'd say it comes third to The Winter Solider and The Avengers (I love the team ups). Again, despite the terrible CGI, action gets 10/10.

Though a lot of other things bug me, the forced humor in this (I don't see why people hate a little humor; as long as it isn't forced, I'm good), also what was the point of the Martha chick in the beginning? I mean she was smokin' but didn't see her purpose (not like she had any). Abomination could have looked more badass, and anatomically, the final battle didn't make sense. Hulk essentially ripped out his radius, how was he able to move his right arm?

I'd say this is one of the most underrated films, and is still great. I mean they still need to do more with it, we could get a Ross becoming Red Hulk, what happened with Stern turning as the Leader, maybe we can see something during the Inhumans; or reference at least. We definitely need to know a bit more about Betty, from what I gather on AoU, it seems like Banner and Romanova have a spark, but hell dude mention Betty! I loved the chemistry (though Norton didn't look like he was trying), so let's get something from that. I think this film leads to a lot that could definitely be used. Lastly, I don't get the scene. What is Tony talking about "team"? If it had to do with S.H.I.E.L.D. I get it, they were in IM, and it can't be Avengers since it's mentioned in IM2 two years later. Maybe a Hulkbuster team? But that didn't make sense with the interaction in Avengers between Stark and Banner.


Overall solid film, seeing it for the 7th time. Now on to Iron Man 2.

Nothing at all? What would you rate it?


So I just finished:
Iron Man 2 and I have to rate it a 8.5/10.

I don't understand the hate for this one either. I think I've seen this maybe about 9 times, and I still enjoy it. If a film has some fine looking ladies, I have no problem, and Tony Stark is the direct correlation to sexy ass ladies. I suppose I'll do more a list this time.

The good? Building up the interest of Captain America; also was funny to notice things like Coulson's excitement about the shield. Scarlett Johannson was incredibly sexy in this one, and will always be hands down the best in action as Widow. Her sass in The Winter Soldier was just a personal thing I liked. I much prefer Cheadle to Howard. Kate Mara, even if she does horrible in the new FF, she'll at least look great in a different superhero flick.


But in seriousness, another poor villain after Roth, who was worse in comparison to Bridges. What I'm saying is; how did Marvel gain so much momentum after this faulty start. I never did like Rockwell, but after seeing a few other things, I believed he did a solid job. I still won't understand the purpose of Vanko, unless we get a little bit more possibly in Ant-Man. I like the tech and all made by Vanko, but it just didn't seem like a good villain. Sure he's smart, and a bit calculating, but just didn't do it for me. He talks about taking down a legacy, but he completely fails to do it.


I don't think this film is horrible as they had to introduce S.H.I.E.L.D. and the Avengers. RDJ was good as Stark, but not in comparison to his performance in IM1.

Action sequence is always badass, especially the forest scene, and I don't care what people say, the Mark V is sick as ****! Graphics were also pretty good in this one, and still a bit of forced humor, but done substantially well in comparison to TIH.

Avengers: Age Of Ultron - 8/10

I saw this last night, it was really good! I had a lot of fun!

I'd give it an 8/10 at the moment, a second viewing may change that. However, in terms of pure entertainment and the 'feel good' factor you get from watching movies, it's a 10/10 easily.

Things I really liked;

Ultron

He came across really well to me. The type of villain that attempts to secure mankind's future by wiping mankind out all together has been done before, but with Ultron you really got the feeling that he BELIEVED what he was doing was necessary for 'peace in our time'. People really, REALLY need to get over the fact that his personality differs slightly from how he is presented in the comics, it simply isn't that big a deal. He is an AI created by Tony Stark, he is going to inherit some of his attributes. They even allure to this in the movie, when Scarlet Witch mentions that neither Tony Stark or Ultron know the difference between saving the world and destroying it.

Captain America

Well, what can I say? Captain America was my favourite Avenger in this movie. He was definitely the leader in this movie. He had plenty of great scenes with the twins and Tony Stark, and you could really see how he is the man who always wants to do the best and right thing. His action scenes were hugely enjoyable too!

The Twins

The Maximoff Twins were a surprise treat for me in this film. Pietro / Quicksilver and Wanda / Scarlet Witch both had plenty of scenes that developed their characters, which made them all the more enjoyable to watch at the end of the film when their stories come full circle. I'm looking forward to seeing more of the Scarlet Witch in future films. This Quicksilver is definitely different to the one we saw in 'X Men: Days Of Future Past', and I honestly couldn't pick between them. They are two very different, but equally fun interpretations of the same character. Which is exactly what these movies are about; adaptation and interpretation. If something is different to what you had expected, get over it and just enjoy it, because it's not your movie.

The opening 15 minutes

The opening scene was incredible, almost like the opening of a Bond movie. We are thrust into the action in a battle scene for which we initially have no background story, and all the characters are introduced, one by one, fighting the enemy via an impressive swooping shot across the battlefield.

The humour

As previously mentioned, this film has a darker tone than it's predecessor, and the humour in this is a nice contrast. It's not over the top, just the same type of humour we have come to expect from the MCU.

Hulk vs Hulkbuster

I should really say; Hulk vs 'Veronica' :) This is a fun scene, you'll see for yourself!

Overall a fun movie, which I'm sure everyone will enjoy!

Wow, generous. :lol

I read your post. I agree that Norton was good - as was Liv Tyler, & I liked how they incorporated the TV show theme, but that's where it ends for me. The rest is utterly forgettable.

Anyway.. the 2003 film is MUCH better. Much better. I didn't like Eric Bana in it, but his angry moments were delivered decently enough. Just a great & different approach to the film generally - I love Ang Lee's vision, & while some of the CG in it is obviously also dated, it was still great in parts. Sam Elliot completely owned the role of General Ross - absolutely perfect casting. The lovely Jennifer Connelly is also one of my fave things about the film - big fan of hers. :) Nick Nolte was awesome - & while his character arc was pretty kooky, I enjoyed it. People put crap on the HULK dogs unfairly, calling them all 'poodles' - box heads. :lol One is a pitbull, the other a mastiff.. & the poodle. That confrontation HULK has with them in the forest is ****ing brilliant. When he reveals himself to Betty prior to the fight.. loved that.

I own the 2008 film, but I rarely feel motivated to put it on. The 2003 one on the other hand, I get out a couple times a year - & the bonus material on my copy is excellent too.

They did seem like good actors for it, but when it came to interaction between them, it seemed like Tyler did most of the work for the relationship. Banner just looked like, oh cool yeah you came back. Abomination is pretty bad design, but if compared to the comic, I'd take this over that. I did see you mention that, and before I would of said, nuh huh, he looks perfect; but yeah that is one bad design for Hulk. Don't see why they tried to go attractive really.

The 2003 one has a place in my heart, that movie is what initiated me to actually go out and learn a bit more about the Hulk. I still remember the trailer where Bana is in the bathroom and the glass break and you hear the Hulk and he grabs Banner. Easily amazing, but to me, especially as an 11 year old ATT, I wanted gamma beasts. I didn't want some electrical earth conduit. I still don't really get it, but I'm going to have to watch it again. Bana did have some pretty solid parts in the movie, and at any point when he is turning to the Hulk, my only thing I wasn't a fan of was that he made a constipated face when getting angry. Connelly is definitely a beauty in that, and as a fan of hers I'm glad she was in it, but Tyler managed the Betty Ross personality better. I also don't mind the action of the dogs and Hulk, it's just there designs were ****ing stupid and weird, but again; as an 11 year old that was the ****.


I admit though that as I'm not a huge fan of Hulk (due to lack of knowledge, I'd even toss in Iron Man in this grouping), I rarely feel motivated to see either one. Though technically neither were actually Marvel as it's still connected with Paramount, I believe. So I still await a good Hulk film, but I have to say that both films had some good and bad, and even Ruffalo is adding some to the mix.

Birdman: 5/10

And I'm being generous. Yes, the performances were all top notch, and I appreciated what it was trying to say about the world of showbiz (specifically in the NY stage) and being an artist and mattering. But it was way too "play-y" if that makes any sense. I used to do work for a theater company for many years and therefore would watch most of the shows they would put on. Most of the shows, and especially the more "arty" plays, had that same kind of pseudo intellectual, supposedly profound dialogue and story structure which of course would end either tragically or ambiguous. It just always comes across as fake deep, as this movie did. I know I'm probably showing my ignorance to the art of plays, but it really isn't my cup of tea. The movie would definitely make an appropriate stage production.

I did appreciate how hit was shot, and I think the only character I liked was the critic--I liked what she had to say.

Edit: Even the jazzy drum music was totally "play-y"

Oh, I also thoroughly enjoyed Incredible Hulk much better than Ang Lee's Hulk. And I also like Norton much better as Banner over Ruffalo. I thought the movie told a great story and I liked the angle they took to the characters of Banner and the Hulk. I loved how they set up the Leader and am really sorry to know that a sequel will never be made. Yeah, maybe the CGI doesn't stand up anymore and the character designs weren't the best, but I completely overlook all those things because I get involved and invested with the story and characters.

For me it's the best comic book movie to date. And I agree about Bridges performance. He's one of my favorite actors and he fades into that character so well I forget it's him when I'm watching it.

Absolutely STILL the best Marvel film..however they followed this game changer with IM2- one of the biggest misfires Marvel ever did.

CallMeTheDoctor
04-28-2015, 06:32 AM
So following up on some of the MCU movies I have been watching to prep for AoU.

Thor: 8/10

I can pretty much guess that everyone hates all MCU except from Iron Man, The Winter Soldier, and Guardians of the Galaxy (always hearing the usual IM2 was the worse thing ever and blah blah blah), honestly if you want to take about worse CB film, it definitely isn't IM2, and I wouldn't say there is a definitive worst MCU film, but again that's me and my opinion, and many have theirs.


Okay, so Thor, I have seen this one maybe about 6 times, and I very much enjoy it, though it certainly is not perfect. First off, I think Hemsworth does a really good job as Thor and from seeing The Dark World as well, I enjoy his maturation of Thor. Has a God of Thunder vibe to it (loved that series), and so personally I think it's super well done. What I wasn't a fan of was his look (the armored suit looked fine), but first off; why no helmet? It's a fantastic helmet don't see why not continuing it (I know Chris said he hated wearing it, but Hiddleton wears a larger and more obnoxious helmet with no complaints). Also his dyed eyebrows and the wig was not as bad, but I'm oblivious to that stuff, but I admit after paying a bit more attention, I wasn't 100% set on it like I had been. That's pretty much my beef about looks now for cast.


Hopkins is always cool to see, guy has played just about everything, and he did a fine job as the Allfather. Really had that grouchy old man, and worn king attitude. Never did get the massive love about Loki or Hiddleston, but he does the job, now they definitely could have worked more about his tricks and magic. Skarsgaard is solid as selvig, couldn't really decide what he was doing; was he a mentor, was he more fatherly, was he a scientific enthusiast, what was his whole role? I get we have multiple roles but his was a bit undecided and choppy. I love the film, but I'd love it so much more without Kat Dennings; of all the good stuff in the film (IMO), I don't see how Darcy is a highlight to this show. Natalie Portman was a beauty, and her character isn't all bad. But she's also a bit like Selvig, kind of hard to place. Though I have to say that her Jane Foster and Thor relationship is one of my favorite in the MCU (does not beat Peggy and Steve though, I'll get to that later). I admit, I have some tears welling up whenever I see Thor destroying the Bifrost and previously telling Jane he will see her again. It gets me almost every time. And Hemsworth was great, arrogant, vane, and overall transformed. Gotta toss that Jaime Alexander is just: :drool:drool:drool


Now the CGI definitely does not age as well after seeing it again. It isn't so much the action, it's moments like Thor flying, or just fast movements overall. The Ice Beast running upside down wasn't bad, and it had always been cringing to see Thor grab Mjolnir when he got his ass whooped by the Destroyer. But no matter what, I personally love how great the worlds looked in Thor and Green Lantern. Asgard and Oa look phenomenal and certainly did a good job to it. So that I do thoroughly enjoy, but yeah; action is hit or miss at times.

The overall story was also very routinely used for these royal kind of films, but it gets it done. Certainly some things don't make sense; like really what is the purpose of the frost giant Loki? What was Odin's plan? He certainly wouldn't crown him, nor would he expose Loki to all of Asgard. Why was Thor sent to Earth specifically? Why no where else? Did Odin have some experience in Earth? How did Thor earn Mjolnir, if he was "unworthy" but still the same? Many weird things on that. Also I must also chime that I like the reference of Bruce Banner in this, however, Selvig said S.H.I.E.L.D. took Banner, well nothing seemed to back that up in the Avengers, so Marvel really needs to get a solid alibi for Bruce. Lastly, Loki was a solid villain for a Phase 1, especially after Roth and Rourke. I'd say it even slightly passes Bridges, but still kind of sad it had taken 3 years after.



Captain America: The First Avenger - 9.25/10

I love this film. Saw it 5 times in theatre within a 2 week span. I would normally give it a perfect score, but it had been nearly 3 years since I've seen it, so it's nice to see it not as fresh.

The biggest issue I have with this is the action sequences and some of the use of CGI. A lot of times it looks awkward and just really kind of ugly looking examples: the entire montage of Cap taking out Hydra bases, the vine swigging on chainlinks, the car chase in the hangar going after the Red skull, and the base battle when Cap gets captured. It seemed that a lot of stuff was when there were big explosions, which was weird because it was a fine job during the Hydra spy escaping the lab. Obviously some of the battle also looked weird like when Cap will kick someone's ass with the shield and they go like 40 ft in the air. But during hand-to-hand moments, it looked good (but does look ****** in comparison to TWS).

Casting, Chris Evans is Steve Rodgers to me. He looks the part, he certainly is humble, genuinely a good person. I noticed some people don't like how he was awkward like when he kissed the Army chick, now hear it out. First off, the super soldier serum makes you a physical badass, does not mean you would change personalities entirely. Also Erskine said it amplifies his character, so if he was kind of awkward as skinny Steve, he certainly will still be awkward with women as Cap. Hell we have Peggy reinforcing that notion with the fondue statement. On the quick subject of Skinny Steve, it does look awkward in comparison of a 2011 film. I'd almost rather skip the beginning up to the procedure (eh maybe I'd watch the boot camp) of the film. Now the absolutely lovely Hayley Atwell. I love this woman, I think she does the best job as any MCU female. First off she is sexy (that red dress :drool), she is a badass, and her chemistry with Evans is by far the best relationship in the MCU. I largely have to say that Evan's awkward Rodgers does a good job; it gives more credibility to Peggy because we have this super soldier badass who at times is more intimidated by this smaller beautiful woman. When I finished watching this film, I have to admit I'd give it a 7/10, but Peggy easily grades it 2.25 higher for me. Also if you see this film after watching Agent Carter, I'm certain you'll like it all the more. Definitely a favorite.

Not much to say about Tommy Lee Jones, he got the Colonel part down. Dominic Cooper as Howard is a personal favorite, I'd even say he's my favorite Stark over 80 percent of the time. Sebastian Stan as Barnes is also underrated. I'm not a fan of how he was bigger than Steve, but I'd rather have that than what Fox is doing with Teller's Richards and Bell's Grimm. Jones as Zola gets the part done, but I honestly never cared for him, even in TWS.

Weaving's Red Skull to me is the best villain in the MCU (up until TWS). He is calculating, he is psychotic, obsessive, ambitious, dangerous, and scary. His hatred is against everyone, not just one set of people or ways. He probably would have killed Zola, despite how much he helped RS. He is capable of handling his own against even Captain America, and if they made the face more anatomically accurate, and less rubbery looking (man, if it looked like the new Red Skull PF; it'd be amazing). I honestly would have preferred if Red skull did not wear his face mask. The scene in the church with the Tesseract would certainly be more intimidating, and it can still build up. I don't see why he had remove his face in front of Cap, I could imagine Cap seeing him in his psychotic look for the first time during the explosions. Would have a Devil gone mad look, and all the more scarier.


Despite some of the ugliness, I still really love this film, and I honestly I will admit I do shed a tear during that last conversation with Peggy. It just gets me, and then seeing Stark searching for him, and Peggy getting the file; done. What really does it? When Fury said he had been asleep for 70 years and his first thing to say is, "I'm late for a date".


Now on to Iron Man 3, gonna skip the Avengers for the double feature on Thursday.

Loved Thor but didn't like Cap:FA.

I thought the family drama stuff in Thor was fantastic. I thought the character of Loki was beautifully realized and made him extremely sympathetic. I was surprised at how well Thor as a character turned out as well. Some of the plot lines feel a bit clunky (like Thor simply accepting that Odin was dead and that he had to stay exiled), but overall I found it very engaging and enjoyable. I liked it better than Dark World which I thought felt a bit generic and I definitely didn't like the pew pew laser stuff in Asgard. And I'm fine with Kat--I like how she calls Mjolnir "meow meow".

Cap:FA I just found very superficial. I have talked about this before, but it all felt very flat. I would see what they were trying to do, but I never felt it--I knew which characters we had to care about because they were given a nice monologue, and I knew which characters we were supposed to hate because they killed people. But I just never felt it. The action was kinda bland and ho-hum--all flash and no substance. And I didn't like the idea of the overly sci-fi tech in the WWII setting. It felt gratuitous and didn't make any logical sense. Watching the Winter Soldier and seeing how well Steve as a character and Cap as a hero and his powers were handled, it makes me dislike FA even more.


BTW, love that you're revisiting all these movies, Doc!

Same here, I really enjoyed the first Thor for the same reasons as you. TFA I always felt indifferent about, like you mention the action was really subpar but I think the main problem is skimming through a whole bunch of important events in Caps life so that they could tie it in with The Avengers.

Yeah Thor is extremely underrated and overly beaten on. I won't deny that TFA is miss more than hit for people, but as a bias Cap fan, I think I can admit why I rate it so high. :lol

I agree, Loki was sympathetic and interesting and just as unpredictable. Best way of explaining, the way Laufey was all WTF when he got obliterated. :lol
The immediate acceptance of the exile was not a favorite for me, but I suppose it could make sense in a guilt-infected way. I liked the Kursed and Malekith (though underpowered and unused), yet I won't deny that TDW could be slow. The one reason I liked and was stoked for TDW was to see more interaction of Thor and Jane. The Rebels Asgardian also was pretty low. Especially when characters like Odin, Sif, Thor, Volstagg, and Frigga; it doesn't make sense with the use of guns. I just never was a fan of Dennings, I admit that pronunciation is adorable, but her character is just so out of place. Maybe it's how I can't stand 2 Broke Girls. :slap :lol

Overall emotionally, I didn't feel much in TFA. Red Skull should make me feel freaked out and amazed like Joker in TDK, but he couldn't. Ultimately I cared more of Peggy and Steve, hardly did for anyone else. Though I appreciate the Howling Commandos after Agent Carter. The tech did seem very unnecessary, but I suppose not much could be done with the Tesseract. i mean we have a sledgehammer with a stone for GoTG. :rotfl

Iron Man 3 - 6.85/10

Man, this one is hard to rate. I'm very mixed on it. First off, I'd say that Tony as a person is much better in this one, I'd say it comes second to IM1. Not much can be said about casting except for new characters. James Badge Dale is fine, not much was really done with him, so it's cool. Guy Pearce also was okay, nothing amazing or stellar, but man he keeps up in shape. Jon Faverau really let himself go on this one, and Paltrow was actually really stunning, though I miss the red hair color from IM1. Cheadle is still the man, and Kingsley is just...uhm I'll get to that.


The Mandarin, hmmm, I'm super mixed on it. I was disappointed by how he was an actor, yet his performance was good. He literally played 2 completely different spectrum and was great in both. Now I haven't seen the One Shot in TDW (?), but I am okay with it. Though personally, like Hulk, I'd have preferred an armored opponent despite how misfired Whiplash was. I also have to admit here I don't know much about Mandarin, but I got the gist.

What I think really bothered me about the film was how corny it came off. The whole Maya (who was greatly underused and would've preferred the EXTREMIS route, and maybe should of added Maria Hill [another reason to have Smulders :drool]), and she seemed in love with Tony, but just ugh. Yeah, no bueno. Also didn't care for the kid as much. I must admit I did like how the suits came about, and it's nice to see variations; even though they didn't show up for long. Hard to say much about this film. Also Shane Black really made this into a non-Iron Man film. Everything was about exploding **** or destroying ****. But it's hard to hate really.


Not a favorite film of the MCU, but I can respect how it really delved into how the Avengers effected him.



Marvel One-Shot's Agent Carter - 5/10 (I give Peggy a 10/10, therefore the 5 was all for Peggy).

I did enjoy this because of more Agent Carter, and she looked great. But I realized that Agent Carter did line up exactly with it. A lot of poor writing I guess, but that's for the entire situation. Also how is Howard saying S.H.I.E.L.D. when in Iron Man, 60 years in the future they just decided to use S.H.I.E.L.D....doesn't make sense.

Yeah, some day light shots look a little weird. It's something with how the light bounces off their skin, or the texture... I can't quite put my finger on it. Although I think when the Rex showed up to eat one, I thought that shot was pretty good. For a 20 year old film, it looks just as good, or better than stuff today.

In the break out scene, IMO the Rex looked legit the entire time.

Thor: The Dark World - 7/10

Seen this one about 4 times now, but decided to be more critical. Normally I'd give it maybe an 8.5.

Can't say anything new about casting wise for this, except for Malekith and The Kursed. I think Eccelston was a fantastic choice, and I seriously wonder why he was so extremely underused and realistically unbelievable. Actually to be fair, it seems that Asgard is extremely under secured. Loki managed to get Frost Giants into Asgard cause he was bored and wanted to **** with Thor's big day. Now somehow Malekith, waking up from a 5K slumber, manages to overcome a new defensed, newly tech advanced Asgard in what seems like less than a day or two. Again that's just poor writing or extremely poor character development. Also the Kursed was ****ing sick. I love it, dude was badass, especially during the fight with Thor. What also didn't make sense was how the Kursed slipped by Heimdall when he was "captured" also how the **** did he get captured and to Asgard in 3 minutes? So as for characters, I think it's fine but just bad writing. The humor on this one was also super unnecessary with Darcy. I'd seriously rather get a gay Thor, a Frigga who was having an affair with Hawkeye, a facially mutilated Sif than having Darcy. First off, how the **** did Richard think she was a waitress when she was wearing a coat and red hat? I get that's Marvel humor for the family, but that's so ridiculous and it pisses me off more because it's Darcy. I don't think she was ever funny, id rather get that awkward new Earth humor of Thor like when he was dishing out Jane about the phone call with Richard. This film honestly would have been much better had it stayed dark. I mean Frigga was killed (also in a ****** manner, but she was badass), but nope; they added Darcy...:slap


I think Thor's outfit looked good in this, but I'd say if they went black, it would have much better. I also prefer this look over the Thor one. The overly bleached brows and awkward wig was bothersome in some scenes, this poncho-wearing mature Thor was more badass. He did have a solid look and more Viking-ish. Speaking of vikings, why the **** was the Asgardian army being trained like Spartans? They are more of a Viking style, not Greek. And why guns? The beginning battle when they attacked the Dark Elves (which were creepy, but decent designs), was fantastic, these guys were going hard in hand to hand. Yet, some issue on the Kursed end; why did the prior ones get killed with neck-snapping and stabbings; yet during the battle with Thor he was able to deflect Mjolnir with a slap of the wrist. Mjolnir and Thor ARE WAY TO ****ING UNDER-POWERED! Thor with an erection should be able to destroy the moon, but nope....it's getting me mad just thinking about it; so I'll move on.

Story was decent, I mostly liked some of the interaction between Thor and Jane; mainly with how it was left after Thor. But yet nothing can ever be kept in sync, I get he was saving villages, but not once did he have a day off and be able to go to Earth? Also when and how was the bifrost rebuilt? This **** isn't a magic show, we need answers. Also I don't get anything about what Loki was doing, and how did he have a physical body and not a holo with his death, he is a necromancer now? Seriously, ****ing get **** together.


Action was probably the best for this, didn't really look awkward, except for when Thor has to fly, but that can be said for any hero.


I'm also wondering as to the end-credit, but I suppose it should be answered more with Ragnarok. Hopefully that one gets the justice it deserves.

Still dig the hell out of this movie. Looking forward to Apocalypse.



The Big Lebowski - 2/10

Like a lot of truly innovative films (and Coen Bros. films in general), this one is understandably divisive. Seems like you either get it, in which case people REALLY get it, or you don't, and some REALLY don't. I cannot stand 5th Element, but there are scores and scores of people who love it, and the same principle is probably at play. I saw Lebowski initially at the theater when it was released, and it didn't do much for me. But a few years later I watched it again, and it clicked on some level. Then I watched it again and I got into it even more, and realized how hilarious and great it was. Now, it's one of my all-time favorite films. I had a similar experience listening to Thelonious Monk.

Totally agree with you that Dark World is an underrated, yet imperfect film. Still in my top 5 MCU films.

I can't say I didn't absolutely get it, a lot of was what is take at face value, but I just couldn't get behind it. I did like the cast, but it just didn't do it for me. I may eventually watch it again, maybe with a bit more open mind, but I don't know if I'd grow to like it. Then again I wasn't a huge fan of True Romance, and now it's easily in my top 10 favorite films. Now that I think about it, I don't think I've seen that many Coen Bros. films, so I may need to give that a go.

I still love it despite some flaws of critical review, but definitely in my top 5 as well.


Marvel's One-Shot: All Hail the King: 8/10

I still like Kingsley as Mandarin, and just to quickly sum this one up, nice to know about the real Mandarin. It's a shame though because I think Kingsley would've been a great Mandarin, and find it hard to know some one may need to top him. It does give a bit appreciation in IM3, but don't see the grand plan that they needed to do that. It's not like we see another IM in the near future. I can only see an MCU reboot after the Infinity War.



Captain America: The Winter Soldier: 9.5/10

First I actually want to comment about the story first and tone of this. This was definitely treated first as an espionage/action thriller and then imported the comic book element. I swear, if Thor had done this, I can guarantee that it would be one of everyone's favorite MCU films. From start to end, I was absolutely engulfed in this kick ass story. Yes of course it was still cliche, but I can't say that adding Captain America and Winter Soldier kicking ass didn't absolutely blow that away. It did add that heavy atmosphere as to who can you trust. I won't lie that (especially with Nat) I questioned loyalties and didn't want to trust anyone. It's an absolute blast to see this movie, and it never slows down in viewing, and that being said, I've seen this 6 times already.


Now as to characters. Pierce got me, and Redford was fantastic. It was your classic mastermind and not really one of evil, it's true that humans often seeing the same goal but at complete different ends. I can almost sympathize for Pierce, but only at most hatred levels (like against those committing genocide, slaughter, terrorism). Rumlow didn't do it for me as much, but I'm sure it will lead to a good place for Civil War. Grillo is fantastic, and seriously how is that dude 55? :horror

After watching AoU, this is my second favorite Widow (first for a while). She had the style, her overall sass, and absolute beauty was spot on. You just couldn't figure her out, and I love that; you think you know her and boom!...She surprises you. My only problem with Widow is still her continuity, you have her as this silent hunter in IM2, and some burdened agent in Avengers, and now this sassy predator. I guess it's a double edge for that. Then we got the most badass thing that came out of this: The Winter Soldier. Sebastian Stan was a beast, he was killing the look, and his overall suit was spot on to me. I love how capable he was with the shield, and seriously; does no one need to change themselves after seeing those knife twirls and **** during that highway scene? :thud:

Never was big on Anthony Mackie, he is far too goofy, hell I couldn't take him seriously in The Adjustment Bureau, but that's just his personality (nothing wrong but just doesn't seem to fit as a hero. He is far too similar to Don Cheadle's Rhodey). But he was fit, and I suppose the best choice for Falcon that I can think off. Some more red would have been nice.

Action and CGI was great, then again it came out a year ago, so not that critical now. May differ in 4 years. I just loved this film, and comes third to AoU and TFA. Also that Peggy and Steve scene. Those ****ing tears, they get me. End scene was also good, so no harm in that.



Marvel's The Avengers 8.5/10

A bit tired to write another novel, but I'll do a quick pros and con:

Pros:
-Cobie Smulders

-Hulk
-Accuracy of such egos and characters colliding.
