Never should have been fired to begin with. 

 

There is room for satire, especially when it's blatantly obvious satire.

This is calumny.  To add to Mournblade's list: Dances With Wolves, Tin Cup, The Untouchables, JFK & Thirteen Days, Field of Dreams, Wyatt Earp, Open Range.  All excellent work.  He's aged well too, one of his best performances was in the fairly recent Hatfields & McCoys miniseries.

 

Im not arguing that he hasn’t made a lot of good - great movies. It’s just that his performances are kinda worthless in them 

 

Field of dreams? He’s emotionless. Look at this. It’s the emotional peak of the movie. This is everything. And he’s just slack jawed and uninterested. 

 

 

You can take any Costner movie and replace him with an average actor with actual range and the movies are improved. I will die on this hill. The guy is a bum.

This is the real challenge of the movie, not killing Thanos.  They have to figure out a way to free everyone who got trapped in the soul stone

 

Do we know they’re in the soul stone? And are we sure they need Thanos alive to bring them back? 

 

What if Stark and Cap is the gauntlet to bring them back knowing it will kil themselves in the process? 

 

I wonder if they will dive into Thanos being unworthy or how he is the cause of his own demise in this movie. He hasn’t even been shown yet. I wonder if he will only really show up for a final battle of sorts or if he will actively try to prevent what they are doing

Not a huge fan of Gunn, I didn't care when he got fired.  But there is no one who could have replaced him.

 

Maybe Taika Waititi could have..but Gunn's firing was a Disney overreaction to right wing trolls.

Agreed about the over reaction, although it is Disney after all.  They are as image conscious as it gets.  But annoying as it is, the way they run their company has certainly worked for them.

 

I don't think even Waititi could have replaced him.  The guardians are his through and through.  Disney needed to be ready to cut GotG 3 when they fired Gunn.  I don't like the idea giving a successful director's art to someone else when you fire them.  That result is usually a terrible movie that never should have been made.

Just saw Captain Marvel. Decent enough movie, best part was probably all the 90s nostalgia.

 

Can't wait for Avengers now.

He's a wooden board in pretty much everything. He reminds of Tugg Speedman trying to cry in Tropic Thunder. He just can't get there. That's Costner for me. He's a handsome stand-in, an empty vessel that is there so good scripts and good cast members can work off him. 

 

He did get that way, later on, when he'd done one too many movies and started to get jaded. But you watch him when he is young and hungry in movies like No Way Out and the Untouchables. He's terrific in those.

Interesting that the trailers for Endgame have been manipulated and some scenes aren't even in the movie. Heck, if it excites the fanbase, that's all I care about. Plus we need as little spoiled about this movie as possible. Go in with a clean slate. 

 

They've been doing that for a while now. Infinity War trailers showed Hulk running during that battle in Wakanda. In the movie Thanos sent him into early retirement 15 minutes into the movie.

I like the theory that: 

 

Spoiler

That shot was from Endgame. They’re going to go back in Time and get another chance st stopping Thanos in Wakanda after tweaking certain things that happened in the previous movies maybe so Thanos isnt able to get all the stones by the time he gets to Wakanda

We saw Superman Into the Spider-Verse; it was very under-rated and holds its own in the best Marvel movie of past year.

It won the oscar for best animated movie, so I think it's properly rated.  lol

Trailers are released very early now while the films have not even finished editing or begun standard reshoots. Scenes, if not the entire movie itself, can be drastically altered within weeks. Van Damme's Cyborg, Star Wars' Rogue One,vand Alien 3 are examples.

 

Case in point - the Avengers: Age of Ultron trailers. The scene of Quicksilver running inside the train car went through changes in each trailer. In one, it's daytime outside the passenger window. In another trailer, it is night. In another it appears to be in a tunnel.

That was never adequately explained.  Just kind of breezed over how Thanos outboxes a creature who never loses brute force contests.

Eh, I find this practice reprehensible. Reprehensible's probably too strong, I just dont like it.  lol

 

I mean, I want as little spoiled as possible too, but if you cant craft a trailer that doest spoil anything, then make a better trailer.  Dont sell people on things you have no intention on delivering on. It's effective, but unethical, IMO. If this were any other business, it would be frowned upon.

But that's different than what the Russos say they/Marvel are doing.  Because yes, a trailer house might get early footage before the final movie is cut.  That's understandable and just part of making movies. 

 

But the Russos are suggesting they go into the trailer process intentionally trying to put fake stuff in there.  Completely different scenario.

Just back from Captain Marvel.  

 

I really liked it.  Although as has often been the case, I think they seem to have consistency problems with how powerful these things are/aren't.  

 

I mean, like, Thanos won a fist fight against Hulk in like 30 seconds.  I think he took shots from two different Infinity Stones.  But Black Widow fought him for two minutes, and Captain America for another two? In this one, Captain Marvel shot the main Bad Guy like 8 times, and all it did was daze him for a few seconds?  

 

But as with all of the Marvel movies, I was really impressed with many of the jokes/one liners.  They've got some really skilled people coming up with those.  

 

And I liked the "opening Marvel splash" tribute to Stan Lee.

Im ok with misdirection or outright fake scenes. It’s a huge pet peeve of mine how much trailers ruin surprises, jokes and the entire plot of some movies (the dark knight rises). 

 

Tease me, fool me just don’t show me

Hulk fights like a younger man, with nothing held back. Admirable, but mistaken
