    Buckeneye That boy good

    Winter Soldier and Civil War were pretty good.

    Yes. In fact, the real joy is after you have seen them all, then set aside four days to binge all 20 in chronological order having seen them all before. That is when you finally see the easter eggs seeded 6 or 7 years before they become major plot pieces. The construction of the entire MCU has been masterful.

    YES

    You only have 19 movies to catch up on.

    IMO the most important ones would be:

    Iron Man 1 and 2
    All 3 Captain Americas
    Thor 1 and Thor Ragnarok (Dark World is probably the worst of all MCU movies)
    Dr Strange
    Guardians of the Galaxy (2 is good but not needed if trying to hurry up)
    All 3 Avengers (4 is coming out in April)
    Spider man Homecoming

    Glass.

    Pretty good for the third movie in the Unbreakable-Split trilogy. I watched both of those in the past week, which helped me enjoy Glass more. I think it's the best thing M. Night has done in about 15 years.

    Just rewatched this again (on Netflix), wildly underrated movie. I'd be very curious to hear what the next generation thinks of it, with no MNS hype (and deserved blowback), no overthinking his colors or signature. No trailers to sell it it as a horror film instead of a drama.

    The score is so powerful and stirring.

    Some good thoughts here on why it was misunderstood:

    The audience and the protagonist is explained about the true nature of the monster before the final showdown with them. Even still, both are terrified by it. This I think is the masterwork component of the film. Because it's all she (and we) know of the world, the smoke fact that we know the monster is not sufficient to reassure us.

    GoTG 2. Great mix tape of classic songs, but mercy is that movie out there.

    Thor Ragnarok is pretty outlandish but tons of fun and a lot more approachable. GoTG is just so crazy in it's space uniqueness, cast and plot. It nailed its genre, it's just a hard movie to sell to the Mrs. (Who likes or loves most marvel movies, including Thor Rag).

    I was so stoked about this, and I really, really, REALLY wanted to like it. There were positives, of course. Tilda Swinton was a maestro as usual, playing 3 different roles with gusto. Mia Goth, I love this girl, she is not hot, like at all, but she plays “uncomfortable” better than anyone I’ve seen in a long time. She didn’t have quite enough to work with here, but she’s a treasure. And dare I say, I know little about Dakota, because I’ll never watch 50 shades of bullshit, but she has a bod on her and her acting, while not academy worthy, wasn’t terrible either. The cinementography was also good, very different from the original, more shaded as a Let the Right One In. And there were moments, certain ones, where I was ready to pop because I though it was going exactly where it needed to go...

    And then it went apefuck off the rails, particularly in the last 20 minutes. And not on a good way. In a combination, the worst possible one, of From Dusk Til Dawn and Mother! They turned a quaint, surprisingly subtle masterpiece of an original into a piece of overrated self-indulgent arthouse hippopotamus crap left me wondering how I had let them con me into spending waaayyy too much time (2 hr 30+) for it to go like that so UCLA film studies students like Muffy and Skeet can talk about the ZOMG FEMINIST SYMBOLISM or some such crap. This had all the elements of awesome (including a cameo by the original star, TCM remake style) but was obliterated by a terrible ending and a director who couldn’t get out of his own way.

    2/5 at best

    Just finished Return of the King to put a bow on the LotR trilogy with my 9 year old. She liked all three films, though asked if we could fast forward through the end when she began to realize its 10 minutes of Sam and Frodo crying and hugging.

    Took the tots to How to Train Your Dragon: Hidden World. Weakest story of the trilogy, but the best visuals, and still better than 95% of the dreck served up as family films. Has a complicated, emotional end that may be hard for young children to process.

    For my money, this is the best animated franchise ever.
