  1. Ant-Man and the Wasp came out before Endgame, and they weren’t in Infinity War, so that’s not shocking. I definitely think the character was enough of a highlight in Endgame that a new movie shortly after could have contended with $300M DOM, but there seem to be no plans unfortunately.
  2. Personally, I only like to read reviews after seeing a movie. Like, if I really enjoyed a movie with bad reviews or vice versa, it can be interesting to hear what was so hated or loved about it. Sometimes I can gain a new appreciation for a film that way. And sometimes I just can’t pinpoint what bothered me and the review helps.
  3. I’m glad they didn’t make an overt statement about the government. They made a compelling enough statements about both sides to get us discussing and make our own decisions. That’s much better than having a movie preach to me. I mean look at us discussing it three years later. They did something right.
  4. For someone that hates superhero movies so much, you’ve sure seen a lot of them. And it’s hard to take someone that uses the word “kiddie” in their argument seriously. Such a juvenile critique. Yeah, I’m sure the kids just loved the filicide and genocide in Infinity War. Is there a general formula? Sure, but that literally comes down to “protagonist goes through hardship to succeed in the end”, a formula that goes back centuries in storytelling and is surely present in all of your favorite movies. Do they try to be crowd pleasing? Absolutely, it’s called a blockbuster. But no heart? Give me a break. You don’t make millions of people cry over a character that wasn’t treated with heartfelt storytelling. No one’s saying you have to like them but get off your high horse with that “kiddie garbage” crap.
  5. To be fair, Tony had a whole suit of nanotech to absorb the stones while Hulk only had the gauntlet. You can see the power flowing before he snaps, but it’s mostly through the whole suit. That’s why it had to be him, no one else could realistically have stolen the stones off of Thanos.
  6. Pretty sure they’re gonna end it with the Top 6 at this point, and would’ve done Top 7 if it wasn’t for (the Disney-related) Spider-Man. Jumanji and It will most likely close out the Top 10, but I see both around $300-350M, below Aladdin. The Disney domination is definitely getting scary.
  7. How did the OT characters earn their friendships? At least the ones in the polls, Han/Chewie and R2/3PO, supposedly began before the movies and wanted us to just go along with it. There was no growth or development there. I have no problem with either friendship, but don’t act like they’re masterclass writing. Poe/BB8 have the exact same relationship so far as Han/Chewie. Literally the same. And as mentioned above me, Force Awakens put a lot into Rey and Finn. I actually think human friendships are the one thing all three trilogies have done well. I’ve bought into all of them so far.
  8. Pretty much any “prestige” film released in Q4 will receive attention from the Academy. Not necessarily a nomination, but it will be looked at and decently in the running (remember Denzel for Roman Israel?). Anything earlier needs to have made a significant impact (ie. Black Panther, Get Out, BlacKkKlansman), otherwise it typically gets overlooked in favor of the films that are right in their faces.
  9. It’s a bit of a blindside. There was no warning that it involves the Manson Family, so when it pops up in the movie expecting some sort of audience background knowledge, it creates confusion. Simply something along the lines of “See the TRUE story of the Manson Murders” or some other marketing bs in the promos would’ve created awareness and I’m sure many people that were interested would get curious enough to google what that it is.
  10. I’m curious to see if there’s any correlation between the people complaining about all of the changes made to Spider-Man and the people complaining about Disney’s live action remakes. Because it sure seems that some of you just want the same thing over and over again. We’ve already had five films involving Mary Jane, Gwen, Uncle Ben, the Osbornes, jock Flash, old May, exclusively NY, no mentor, super secret identity, etc. If that’s really what defines Spider-Man for you, just go watch those movies again. They’re still there and at least the first couple did a really good job with it. Marvel is trying some new things with the character to keep him interesting to those that burned out on him with the other films. Notice how they haven’t touched a single villain that was in another film? And the general consensus is that they’ve done a solid job. Not perfect movies by any means, but they’ve managed to capture the essence of a young, immature superhero who struggles to balance his personal life with the pressure of being a superhero. THAT’S who Spider-Man is, not the little side details, and thank you Marvel for sticking true to that.
  11. Kraven is probably Spidey’s biggest villain yet to not appear in a film, and the only member of the original Sinister Six not tackled yet, so I’d put money on him being next. Spidey as a fugitive is a perfect setup to bring him in too.
  12. Finally saw this. Think I loved it... But some asshole brought a baby (yes, to John Wick) so gotta try to go again
