Good to know, thanks!
I love the spidey banter in civil war..." Ooooh you got a metal arm? So cool...."
That letter wasn't for Stark; it was for Stank.
Lol, that was funny (and a funny scene!)
Movie #14 - Doctor Strange
Initial reaction: interesting, not exactly a fun movie though
Fave scenes: end scene with Darmammu and the loop, Strange/Wong scenes in the library, when he visited Christine in the hospital after being stabbed and he kept scaring her
I kept expecting Strange to break bad for a good 1/2 of the movie so I was relieved he was a good guy. Sucks about Mordo getting his heart broke by his mentor and now he’s broken bad.
I was shocked to learn at the end that the infinity stone was there.
A few scenes had some added humor which was nice. My fave was when Strange asked Wong “Just Wong? Like Adele? (blank stare)... Drake? Bono? ... Eminem?” LOL
Liked the secret scene at the end with Thor. I’m guessing that’s what the next Thor movie will be about, finding Odin. Curious how Dr Strange will assist with that.
Dr Strange was such a dick in the beginning, especially to Christine so it was nice to see him break “good” even though he’ll always be a bit cocky haha.
The buildings moving and rotating reminded me a lot of Inception. A visual acid trip trip.
Cumberbatch did pretty well, liked his American accent.
Overall the movie was interesting, but not one that I’d want to re-watch over and over again. Dr Strange the character I’d be interested to learn more about, but not so much Mordo or the sorcerer stuff.
Next movie: Guardians of the Galaxy vol 2
They're fun movies but as a comic fan I dislike that actual founding members of the Avengers - Ant-Man (Dr. Hank Pym) and the Wasp (Janet van Dyne) - are relegated to secondary roles. Most fans aren't even aware of this kind of thing due to the re-imagining that happens in films.
These movies aren’t for comic book fans and the vast majority of the billions of dollars these movies have made come from people who AREN'T hardcore comic readers.
Agree. I mean they are KEY figures in the original avengers. Wasp even becomes leader for a good amount of time.
Doesn’t change his perspective or thoughts. He wasn’t saying they did it wrong. sheesh everyone is so quick to jump down people’s throats.
This is “jumping down someone’s throat?” For a lawyer I’m quite surprised by your accusation.
Yep. Wasp even named the team.
Wow, you're moving through these at an incredible pace thirty-two. The library flippin rules! I've been using it for films since 2003 I think.
This is a fun read. We should do stuff like this more often.
The library really is great. Between Peoria and Glendale libraries, I haven’t had to wait for any DVD at all. Love using the library for CDs as well.
Movie #15 - Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2
Initial impression: not too shabby for a sequel - Liked it
Fave scenes: Drax and Mantis scenes, Nebula and Gamora talk about their childhood, Quill/Nebula dance scene and the scene where they talk about the unspoken stuff, Drax laughing at Quill after Mantis read his feelings for Nebula
Drax had me dying! So matter of factually calling Mantis ugly, fake puking at the thought of being physical with her and at the end “you’re beautiful... on the inside” LOL
Liked the overall theme about family
Rocket was a huge douche but is a softy at heart
Yandu’s redemption arc, awww
Didn’t like it as much as the first one but it was still entertaining and had heart.
Next movie: Spider-Man: Homecoming
This one is part of the group including Iron Man 2 and Avengers 2. Extremely disappointing. Some good stuff in it but it suffered from an overly busy climax.
