    Do movies that you do remember had sequels but you wish you didn't know that count? I've tried to forget that Highlander had a sequel.

    DC was willing to take risks though I doubt the business people perceived them as risks. They went for a more serious approach, one that tried to explore the real impact of the existence of such...

    That's a symptom. Starting as a bold idea of a shared universe beyond what has ever been done before in movies, they have fallen into a pattern of playing it safe at the risk of vastly reduced...

    Technically, it looks like there will be more movies with Tom Holland but no more references to anything in the MCU which is kind of too late since his origin in this series is completely linked to...

    I will say that immersing him in the high school years has been the one big plus of the MCU Spider-Man movies, really emphasizing that he's a teenager. The biggest downside has been that he's in the...

    But that's something that happened after Spider-Man had been around for three or four decades. Spider-Man was around before Iron-Man. Those events had nothing to do with his origin. Essentially,...

    Ah, I was working from the assumption that future Spidey movies could not be in the MCU. But if it's just that they could assume the first two movies happened but just no longer make any reference...

    I've got nothing against Tom Holland but I doubt that will happen. The prevailing wisdom is that it would be too confusing. Having him continue as Spider-Man would have people going, "Duh. Is this...

    I took it the other way. Far from Home made a billion and now Disney wants 50% of the profits on all future Spider-Man movies which is presumably a lot more than they got for Far from Home.

    Usually, I'm the type of person who separates the comedy and the drama and likes them both in different ways. I even can watch old comedy shows like Bewitched and explain the serious undercurrents...

    That The Avengers is aging a bit (though still a classic).
    That the Mandarin twist in Iron Man 3 was terrible, disrespectful to the comics and made the film worse off.

    So the problem is what is being defined as enjoyable. Now, apparently, anything that isn't War and Peace might as well be fluff and be done with it.

    P.S. I know that using W&P as your example is...

    I am criticizing people for saying that nothing in a particular genre is good unless it's "fun" in the sense of not having any substance. Many of the criticisms of the early DCEU movies were that...

    True. Some of the "reviews" of DC movies, especially fan reviews, have bordered on psychotic. Even the biggest point of the "professional" reviews seems to be "They aren't fun" which apparently has...

    That's true. Legolas makes pin cushions of them all before they know what hit them.

    I also liked that Cap and Peggy got their happy ending though yeah it does make Sharon a dropped plot thread.

    I remember when the Jackie Gleason show was a series of standup skits and variety. But it wasn't working and they went to the Honeymooners as at least half the show. I thought it was hilarious and...
