Marvel General: I love the Powerglove, it's so badorAfter The ApocalypseEdition Previous thread ==> >>46850 Remember to use spoilers. Is it all down hill from here? Has Disney's Marvel cinematic universe set the bar too high? Will audiences ever reach peak super hero fatigue? Is anybody actually watching the Marvel television series?
DC General: Beware the Batgirl Edition PREVIOUS ISSUE:>>46400
Why Batgirl? Because Warner Bros. has apparently decided to give Joss Whedon a shot at writing, producing, and directing a Batgirl film: http://birthmoviesdeath.com/2017/03/30/joss-whedon-will-direct-batgirl
Is shooting Superman with a kryptonite bullet really much of an achievement to wow people? The bullet is doing all the work, a random child could manage that achievement since he's expecting the round to just bounce off him.
Though the suicide squad movies have always been stupid since their purpose is meant to be "We need an expendable super team to take on rogue supermans" and you have people like fucking Harley Quinn on it. Yeah a dumb bitch with a baseball bat is really an anti-superman weapon.
>>417520 What about a monster movie where one of the kaiju is literally just a giant human dude armed with a bunch of giant weapons as his gimmick?
Like he's still superstrong/tough and able to monster brawl (putting a giant beast in a headlock, suplexing a spaceship) but the host of weapons replace the spikes, blades and biological breath weapons etc other monsters have.
GODZILLA vs KONG Kong, accompanied by a mute little girl, is taken on a JOURNEY TO THE CENTER OF THE EARTH to find the POWER AXE of the ANCESTORS. He is stalked by Godzilla every step of the way. Meanwhile, Greta Thunberg joins up with a Youtuber conspiracy nut to break into a super secret evil corporation facility because of reasons. The story is as thin as a porn movie, so it can lead to as much action as possible, but the horrible cinematography makes the fight scenes look so terrible that you could confuse this with Michael Bay's Transformers. The final boss does not help out in that regard either (it's a thin looking CGI Mechagodzilla, built around the corpse of King Ghidorah). And, naturally, it is set in Hong Kong because China must be impressed for the movie to make back its budget.
The movie is less dumb than King of Monsters, but less satisfying than the 2014 Godzilla, less fun than the 1997 Godzilla, and it's not worthy of polishing the shoes of Pacific Rim.
>>417505 Nah, the law got him and he proved to be a cowardly little bitch who snitched on all his pals for a reduced sentence. Somehow his street cred survived being the very embodiment of "everybody is a gangasta until..." and is still selling his music, but hey I guess if you are a fan of a guy like him you can't be the sharpest knife in the drawer.
Watched the Cloverfield trilogy the last few days.
First movie is... a monster movie but with that goddamn stupid "shaky hand cam" style like the Blair Witch project. I consider this a horrible idea, especially when I was hoping for a monster movie. It's not bad as a movie though, there's suspense, catastrophe and bloodshed. I just don't like this direction style. And the movie kind of has no ending whatsoever.
Second movie (Cloverfield lane) is much better, and makes for a good thriller, even if it is somewhat predictable. The aliens in the end kind of ruin the movie sadly, they should've played a bigger role earlier on. Goodmans character could've had proper radio and some cameras set up too in his bunker, not just a VHF radio that wouldn't detect anything. The apocalypse scenario of it all should have been more emphasized, because without that the ending felt really out of place. The main character goes from a fashion designer to fighting aliens with Molotov cocktails in a span of ten minutes.
