  1. Still trying to figure out how to put to words exactly what I thought of this movie. It’s wild, creative and definitely has something to say. I don’t think all of it’s ideas were perfectly executed into the film, and there was some sloppy technical work. But that’s all made up for by the bigness and boldness of the movie, as well as the strength in the performances. It’s a hilarious film, and it’s really hard to knock a movie that’s this innovative in what it’s attempting to do, especially since it’s mostly successful. Also that horse twist is historic, that extra bit of weirdness was great, and I lost it when stocks boomed after the video leaked out.
  2. But are any of the villains really all that memorable or enhancing to the movie? It’s been a bit since I’ve seen it. I could see the Mysterio\Chameleon duo work though if they’re used together as more of one set of villains instead of two separate entities. I was just saying that these movies tend to feel pretty crowded pretty quickly, and the more you try to fit in, the less time you have to properly develop the other elements of the film.
  3. Ringing endorsement from Ty Burr ”I wish I could tell you that "Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again" is ridiculous and I hated it, but the fact is that it's ridiculous and I loved every minute.”
  4. I get that it’s part of the mythos, and I’m not saying multiple villains is the sole reason for those movies failing. But it tends to contribute to that sloppy writing, as it sends the script in multiple different directions and gives less time to develop each of those villains. SMH was already sporadic in its direction in that it kept bouncing from being a high school comedy, to an avengers thing, to a typical superhero movie. It juggled those fairly adequately, I just wonder how well it does it when you throw in multiple villains, as each villain tends to take the movie in a different direction. Even with movies as good as Black Panther and The Dark Knight, their biggest flaws were their secondary villains imo (even though their primary ones excelled). Two-Face was speedily developed at the expense of less Joker, and what-his-face was hastily canned but his screen time took away more potential Kilmonger development. Im pressed to think of a case where multiple villains didn’t hamper a comic book movie.
  5. And if it opens to 300m, well 1B DOM here we come

    That’s one of my disappointments with Disney getting Fox. The only reason we got Logan and Deadpool (two self-contained experiments) was because they didn’t really have to fit those movies into a cinematic universe. Sure they are apart of the X-Men franchise, but they weren’t burdened by fitting into a timeline because the X-Men timeline made no sense anyways.
  7. Big blockbusters do pay, especially if you getting an actress to star in the movie (like Captain Marvel) vs simply being a side character. Jennifer Lawrence hit it big with The Hunger Games and X-Men (granted, her awards career would have been okay without them likely) Obviously Johansson, Watson, Gadot and Knightley benefited quite a bit from their franchise work Star Wars was a wash for Natalie Portman, but it's propelled Daisy Ridley into the limelight, and likely was more positive than negative for Felicity Jones. Evangeline Lily's gotten most of her work from Hobbit and Ant-Man. You have Game of Thrones, which is a TV show obviously but still blockbuster type, that's turned Emilia Clarke, Maisie Williams and Sophie Turner into more household names. They've already gotten some high profile work from it, and may possibly get more when their schedules open up after it ends. Margot Robbie was certainly the hit that came out of Suicide Squad, and her track record since then has been improving. It's hard to say the Spider-Mans have had any negative effects on Kirsten Dunst, Emma Stone or Zendaya's careers. I think it has more to do with the fact that franchises have been pretty male dominated when it comes to leads, so you're bigger name actresses are usually a bit pricier, especially when if they're playing a supporting role. I doubt a blockbuster is necessarily a bad career move when the pay is pretty strong, unless you're locking yourself into only doing those blockbusters.
  8. None of that video contradicted what I said. I wasn't claiming minorities didn't have the right to own a gun. I was saying most Republicans, like Dinesh, are in favor of ridiculously loose gun laws (beyond simply having the right to own a gun), and throw a fit if anything regarding gun control is mentioned, such as more secure background checks, or closing gun control loopholes, or ensuring mental stability of people who buy guns. It also doesn't contradict that Republicans are consistently against workers rights, against the right to have access to affordable healthcare, against religious freedom for people who aren't Christian, against a woman's right to control her own healthcare (as well as continually defending predators who have defied different womens rights, such as the sitting president right now), against LGBT rights to marry and being able to shop without being refused service, against black rights to not be profiled and targeted by authorities, against immigrant rights to be able to keep their children with them when seeking asylum, etc. And to not get this off-topic, Dinesh is setting up a ridiculous argument with this movie that is in fact racist. As it's not just permissing, the disenfranchisement that's being done by the Republican party of women and minorities, it's equating it to them to the likes of Lincoln.
  9. My grandmother is also going to see Mamma Mia with me. That’s the best kind of party
  10. They’re going to overload this one with villains to aren’t they? Cant they just ride with one? Spidey 3 and TASM2 have proven combining multiple big villains doesn’t work for this hero

    I remember 10 years ago I thought The Incredible Hulk was a good movie. Oh how I’ve grown.
  12. I remember when my mom told me once “There’s a movie I want to see, let’s go see it.” I said okay. Then I saw she got tickets to Dinesh’s “America” movie. That was a really hard 2 hours of my life.
  13. Yes. The Republicans sure do want women, minorities and the LGBT community to be free. It’s not like most of them they think their inanimate fire arms deserve more rights than actual people.

    Better yet, it’s been 10 years since Mamma Mia released, the film that inspired the upcoming all time great
