Have you ever even been on a plane, you piece of shit?
I just finished a rewatch of seasons 1-4 and aside from some dated jokes (a lot has changed since 2013), season 4 is much better than its reputation. I watched both the “remix” and the original cut and the original is better.
omplete and utter non claim to fame- a friend of mine was the last winner of the Great Irish Bake Off...
If Rogue One’s fanbase skews relatively rightwards (and do bear in mind the alt-right backlash that greeted its multi-ethnic female-led band of heroes in late 2016), I think that’s only incidental, because, as you say, Rogue One’s fanbase no doubt skews older than Episodes VII and VIII, partly because of its darker,…
Fuck. My good and great friend was a hyper-nerd, and only owned Star Trek and Star Wars soundtracks, that’s the only music he listened to, John Williams faux-classical. He was mildly irked when his apartment got broken into and thieves made off with electronics and his VHS collection, but deliberately left his CDs…
That’s a strange reason to not see a movie. Lots of movies have silly throwaway lines.
Fair enough! Considering TFA’s plummet from its initial peak down through my rankings is only now slowing to a stop, I think it’ll be at least another year before I can accurately assess TLJ for myself.
I remember this movie! But only because I remember it being filmed in Boston - it was before the tax credits and the success of Good Will Hunting meant that directors were willing to look at Boston as a shooting location, and so it was a big deal. And it was also a big disappointment that it wasn’t that good (I never…
It’s ok, the next movie will be titled Marvel Studios Presents: Avengers: Infinity War 2: A Thanos Story.
I saw this last night and it was great, but I saw it in an empty theater. I can see why it’s a difficult sell. America might not be up for the ugly reality of motherhood. Tonally, it’s odd: the humor is plentiful but muted while a sense of disaster slowly builds. The payoff was fantastic though.
Yes, I do think it was very tongue in cheek and a deliberate twist on the old “James Bond Will Return” lines. Just a gag from Marvel saying “Thanos is the star now!”
I know exactly what you mean, and share that nostalgia. I rewatched this movie a couple of months ago to scratch precisely that itch.
You could google Solo AVClub Review, which’ll make that 2 steps, tops.
Get off my lawn, Jesse!
Yeah, fuck animals! Me not want heroes of movie to do heroic thing like help defenseless creature!
Amen. This is why I (AND ALL RIGHT-THINKING PEOPLE) preferred Homecoming to most of the recent MCU movies: the stakes were relatable. No universe-threatening megalomaniacs, just a pissed-off construction/demolition contractor with a temper and more weapons than he should have had.
I would think Deadpool would be upset if he got a grade above a “B-.”
Lord and Miller shot first.
I feel you. I didn’t hate it as much as you did, but I was definitely underwhelmed. While the style and tension was great, it seemed fairly obvious where the plot was going, which wouldn’t necessarily be a problem if there were other interesting things going on, like, say, further exploring their codependent…
