    This was my favorite comic growing up. But this movie was made so long ago and Disney has botched it so badly that I don't see how this movie becomes a success. Of course, that doesn't mean I won't be in the theaters to see it.

    what did disney do to botch it outside of the long ass delay, which probably has more to do with the deal anyway.

    the X-men movies are good individually
    but if you binge-watch them
    you'll notice that they all contradict each other
    then first class looks like a re-boot

    Just finished watching Rambo: Last Blood
    , what a fucking way to end a franchise. It was more of a drama/thriller for much of the film, a real slow-burner, but the final act was splatterific mayhem! Loved that they used a good deal of practical SFX too, made it feel almost like an exploitation film at times. Had no idea the director was the Get the Gringo guy but in hindsight I see the similarities in tone and so on.

    That looks fucking awesome man, thanks. So many familiar faces too, David Patrick Kelly, William Sadler, Martin Kove, Stephen Lang, Fred Williamson!

    There are some interesting points there mind you. I agree that Hollywood awards tend to reward flashy rather than nuanced direction, and male directors have a greater tendency toward flashiness. But is that gender bias? I'm inclined to think it's just stupidity.

    It is. I caught it on the big screen on the ship one night, along with Gemini Man and Ad Astra. None of them were really that good although Gemini Man did have some reasonably good action scenes in the first half. Jojo Rabbit was almost boring.

    Beginning to think Taika Waititi is an absolute hack.

    Watching this one:

    Imagine willingly buying and watching Shyamalan in the current year. :heh:

    Seems harsh all of a sudden.

    Thor Ragnarok is my favourite of the Marvel films I've seen, because it was actually funny.

    I actually watched that for the first time the other day. Thought it was extremely meh and not really funny at all. Definitely not my favourite of the MCU films, not even close tbh. What We Do in the Shadows seems like a fluke to me at this point.

    I guess you can't account for differences in sense of humour but I enjoyed it a lot more than the other light-hearted MCU films like Guardians.

    I guess What We Do in the Shadows has the advantage of Jermaine Clement if you are a Conchords fan.
