Default General Movie Randomness

A year + since the last post.

I've seen Deadpool and Captain America 3 as expected. Both exceeded my expectations and were fun movies.

Deadpool nails the character as the reviews have said for months and it's genuinely funny with good amount of action and copious R rating violence.

Captain America was the Avengers sequel we wanted Age of Ultron to be, it's nice to see the mix of characters that could make up an Avengers roster at any given time. The character interactions were great and there wasn't the overuse of one liners between each character as there was in AOU.

Spiderman actually makes me believe the next reboot will work and Black Panther should be a solid movie as well as he had some good characterization in the movie.

I have yet to see Superman vs Batman, then again I haven't even watched Man of Steel.

Quickie: Suicide Squad is getting slammed by the reviews on Rotten Tomatoes and the fan boys can't take it.

36% average score as of this writing, and I'm not surprised. Warner Brothers/DC get your acts together.

Wonder Woman looks awesome though and feels close to the comic as a movie property.

Yeah, that sounds about right. They should've went full R on it and just said fuck it.

Still think it's going to make money overall, though.

Suicide Squad looks trash. I read that after the light-hearted trailer was well-received, they went back and rewrote/reshot parts of the movie to give it a lighter tone bc they were like "Oh, people think this movie is gonna be funny and they like it"

The consensus is the first 20 minutes is good, then they just overcomplicated things and make too convoluted for the movie going public, and anyone that wanted this to work.

That sounds about right--DC universe is really still trying to find its footing so it seems like every major project feels the need to shoulder too much of a burden in establishing it. Not a promising formula--if you put out good movies people will watch them and the universe-building tends to take care of itself

They've been hyping it for a long time, and there are a lot of fan boys who will go see it regardless and say it's awesome no matter the reviews. Ghostbusters just had the wrong marketing formula, that and blaming the geek segment and calling them women haters for thinking a crappy movie looked crappy.
