  1. Just watched Black Widow. Florence Pugh stole the show, unsurprisingly, and actually managed to lend some emotional weight to otherwise hollow scenes - she's very good. But overall it was weightless. I get that it's a Marvel movie and they're all trying to do the quippy thing - and it struck a nice balance for the first 40 minutes or so - but once David Harbour came in, the jokey dialogue started to make me uneasy, especially when it's about forced hysterectomies or all the people Natasha must have murdered, and The retconning of Natasha's backstory and general vagueness of the vil
  2. I don't think "full Marvel" is necessarily an arbiter of the film's quality, just that the final act of a lot of Marvel films tend to end up exactly the same way - a big CGI fight scene with two people either throwing different coloured energy blobs at each other or fighting on top of a giant flying fortress, and it feels perfunctory. They're superhero movies, so they're always going to climax with a big action set piece, but they don't need to feel so generic.
  3. Considering he's meant to be a trickster god, Loki comes off dumb as fuck in this.
  4. I tend to agree here, and I also have the opposite problem, which compounds on it:
  5. I Believe I Can Fly? That's what came to my mind.
  6. It's a bit of a weird reason though, given the signature Marvel move is a cameo after the plot has been completely resolved. He wouldn't need to save the day any more than Nick Fury did in Iron Man.
  7. That would have made his going back to get with Peggy hit a whole lot different...
  8. The show wasn't great before, but this episode turned a corner into aggressively stupid.
  9. I don't care for this at all. 😕 The "witty banter" between Sam and Bucky is really forced, and their dynamic makes no sense, they're just being crowbarred into this buddy cop thing. In fact, almost nothing that happens in the show makes sense: it's like they know the basic things they want to happen, and then it's just super lazy writing just to get from Point A to Point B. The action scenes are good, and it seems like it's trying to make some points about white privilege and American imperialism somewhere in there, but the whole thing is just... bad. Real disappointed in this one.
  10. I've never bought into Wanda and Vision's relationship because the entire thing happened off-screen, for no apparent reason except that they're together in the comics. The attempts at pathos fell flat for me because none of it's been earned.
  11. Quicksilver could kill Thanos by running into him really fast confirmed.
  12. I didn't say anything about "superpower lore doesn't sit well with me...", I just don't vibe with how it's presented in the comics. It's fine, and I get why people like it, it's just not my speed. The MCU was for a long time very thrifty with its superpower lore and they tried to draw from a lot of the same sources and tie it together (the serums, the Stones, SHIELD). I think it's too easy and loses something if the world is just completely off the wall and swarming with magic robots.
  13. This might have been a little too much for me. I can't really read Marvel comics, because the constant retcons and contradicting lore, plus the matter-of-fact "superpowers and magic are just everywhere, deal with it" setting doesn't really work for me. The MCU was built up so carefully for a long time, and I think it's in danger of disappearing up its own ass.
  14. He was only a touring member of Harvey Danger, Peep Show is fine.
