Black Panther was weak and super derivative. Avengers = too much cheese, too many quips.

Actually, those complaints apply to every Disney MCU film.

 

Theyd actually apply to all of the MCU films. Disney have been pretty hands off MCU considering the sh*t ton of money its bad. There was literally no real change in the output when Disney took over, if anything they improved things but giving Feige more control.

I don't mean Disney directly. I hate that shit. I'm just using them as the time the shift occurred. Not blaming them.

 

Yeah that’s fair - just I didn’t think there was much of a shift, they’ve seemed fairly consistent the whole time. As Choc said, most are all pretty average.

 

Though I guess the MCU do look a lot better considering just how badly DC dropped the quality post Nolan.

The earlier Marvel films come across to me like the director has a lot more control and artistic freedom. That can get a film series in trouble, we all know, but watching a director's vision independently realized is far more satisfying than watching a 'boardroom of directors' movie, greenlighting the same origin story film every time for every character introduced.

Feel like the following is the obvious joke about a film that's been delayed for three years based on a concept that's nearly thirty eight years old in a film franchise that is itself two decades out from the start but nevertheless —

 

Old Mutants! They should've called the movie Old Mutants!

 

(Also : they apparently managed to leap the hurdle of correctly spelling 'Sienkiewicz' in the closing credits but somehow goofed on 'McLeod'.)

Anyone see it this weekend? Is it worth the Covid risk to see it in a theater? I like the idea of weird men in biohazard suits going into the theater to spray it down with AGENT COVID stuff.
