Falcon/Winter Soldier was a means to an end imho, they needed to do it to carry on with their MCU plans. It was by far the weakest show they've made - But then they made the Netflix show (The dude with the punch) which was fucking terrible. So compared to that Falcon/WS was 1000x better.
I quite like the Luke Cage and Jessica Jones hope they make a appearances, but Iron Fist was hot garbage, Daredevil keeps being touted as the best one but i bounced off it hard dunno why

Daredevil was OK, I thought the punisher was first class though. Watched all of iron fist but not bothered it got canned. Jessica jones and luke cage were terrible.

Controversial opinion on a nerd forum - the MCU is all crap

The Batman. Paul Dano as Paul Dano in Prisoners (amazing but why the same fucking glasses and hair cut?). Tom Vampire or whatever the fuck he's called was decent. Zoe Kravitz is stunning.

Basically felt like an extended The Crow, but obviously not as good.

I *watched* Ambulance last night. You won't see a more pathetic, corny film for the rest of your life.

Doctor Strange In The Multiverse of Madness;

Hmmm, it looks visually stunning and if you like Sam Raimi movies you'll like this a lot (and its surprisingly scary by MCU standards). On the other hand if you want an interesting plot or something that actually moves the MCU on, you'll probably be disappointed.

It was quite scarey I thought it was good … as for moving things a long I thought there were a few threads..

I'm sorry @caLLous I'm more excited about naming my next haemorrhoid. I thought the first was utter bollocks (basically cowboys and Indians, but sold on the 3D aspect)

I have not seen the first one. I doubt I ever will. It looks stupid.

I'm one of the few people brave enough to admit that they actually enjoyed it.

It was a bit corporate in it's storytelling, a reflection of Cameron's intellect no doubt, but it's a nicely realised world with some stupid things - but actually pushes some earth biology that none of us were taught because we didn't know it (mycelial networks, trees carbon trading etc) - obviously taking it to extremes.

Either way - it's pro-science nice visual action fun. But I wouldn't hunt it down and go "amazing".

To be fair - I'll probably see this one. Cameron has a hard-on for the oceans - so if he can't make a great water-move after the Abyss then I don't know who can.

Either way it's a new movie to watch and hopefully it'll be a pretty CGI showcase if anything else.

Two things:

1: Aren't we due a decent space movie at any point soon? We've had Interstellar and The Martian but nothing since.

2: Sat through Morbius yesterday. It's a one and done. Nothing special. Great concept average execution. Matt Smith was probably the best thing in the movie.

I gave it a hard pass since IMDb bombed it.

It's a shame really, Jared Leto was amazing in some films - Dallas buyers club for instance, but it seems he's got a bit... pretentious?
