It's the best sequel since The Winter Soldier. Groot slays every time he's on screen and surprisingly, it's more emotional than the first movie. I want to watch it again.

aka Iron Man 4: Avengers Disassembled, Featuring The Avengers with Special Guest Star, Captain America.

Watching the Thor Ragnarok trailer recently just underscores the point that this movie was hijacked by both Kevin Feige and RDJ. It's less about Captain America and Bucky, and more about Tony Stark and his many, many issues. Which is sad because I love Steve and Bucky's relationship but it was sacrificed because 1) RDJ demanded more screentime, 2) they needed to introduce both Black Panther and Spider-man, and 3) Kevin Feige wanted to stick it to DC by making a better Vs blockbuster. Spider-Man and Ant-Man remain highlights of this one.

Natasha asks at one point: "Are you incapable of letting go of your ego for one goddamn second?" This is perhaps the overall theme of this movie.

aka Iron Man 3.5: My Ego is More of an Asshole Than I Am.

The best thing about this is that party where Steve almost lifts Mjolnir. Good times.

I think this still holds up. It works because Marvel invested time and money for the Iron Man, Captain America & Thor movies that came before this, introducing us to most of characters that will inhabit the Phase 2. I still can't, with that death.

"You people are so petty. And tiny!" is still one of my favorite quotes.

This movie is an oddity because most of the characters would have been dead by the time Steve Rogers woke up from his ice coma. I think that's why many don't feel a connection to this movie as much. I still love it not just because of Chris Evans' starmaking turn as Captain America but for the Howling Commandos. For the little screentime they had, the director made each of the Howling Commandos pop up in their own way. Also, I love how it showed some of the pre-work Sebastian Stan did as Zola-experimented Bucky that would segue into The Winter Soldier.

They're having a MCU Marathon (on Star Movies) that will lead up to the premiere of CA Civil War Tonight. No Iron Man movies, which is fine -- he/RDJ is already overexposed as it is. I forgot how heartbreaking that scene where Thor tries to lift Mjolnir and discovers that he can't.

Just finished it and it was a blast to read. Constance Wu is perfect for Rachel and Gemma Chan too for Astrid.

It's cute and fun and an easy read. It reminds me so much of the drama that is high school so much. I like most of the characters, especially Simon. Also, Read more... )

I just saw the finale again. Nicole (and Alex) for all the awards!!! When she's at the top of her game, no one can touch Nicole Kidman, not even her co-star Reese Witherspoon. Also, Laura Dern deserves awards for rising above the thankless role of Renata and making her pop.

If you haven't watched this, run to HBO and watch it.

aka Iron Man 5: Meet My Protege, Spider-Man. You might know him from his surprise bit from Iron Man 4: Avengers Disassembled, With Special Guest Star Captain America.

The best thing about it was Luke Evans as Gaston.

I agree, musesfool. It works on almost every situation.

Watching a shirtless Jay R Ferguson smoking his meat, is making me feel things. What a daddy.

This made me smile. Plus, those hips are mesmerizing.

Awesome. The world-building is fantastic and builds on the first movie. As always, the production design and fight choreography is stellar, and I have to say, they added a sense of fun -- morbid but fun -- to the proceedings.

Then I did a rewatch of the the first movie. Fuck, I forgot that Read more... )

Just caught the last part of the movie. Seriously, Dumbledore fucked over the Slytherins so much with those last points. What an asshole, really lol

Just caught the last part (basically, the Battle at Hogwarts) of the movie. And I don't remember or probably forgot this one little shot of Neville tired and slumped on the stairs as Luna sits beside him. I wish they ended up together.

I think I've convinced myself that I kind of ship Ron/Hermione but Harry and Ginny...still a no.

I happened upon this on cable. It's still loads of fun and I can't believe how many stars they packed into this -- I totally love Chris Evans' Jensen Ackles-like take on one of Ramona's boyfriends. Also, I can't believe she and Knives really fought over Scott. Really?

Speaking of Knives, I love her. And I'm glad she didn't end up with Scott because she's much too cool for Scott by the end of the movie.
