    What a complete mess this run was, and not even in the "I don't like this, so it sucks" way. Terrible pacing, nonsensical art, terrible structure, complete misunderstanding of characters.

    As...

    Haven't read all the previous comments, but here's my take on the current MCU. I like it, overall, but I'm finding that each successive film is giving me diminished returns at this point, with...

    Poll: Yeah, Remender's Daken was freaking atrocious....

    Yeah, Remender's Daken was freaking atrocious. Way to not know anything about a character.

    Regarding the poll question, despite how much I enjoyed Raze in No More Humans, Daken gets my vote, hands...

    I agree with the bold. Heck, I think Thor: The Dark World is the best Thor movie, hands down. Since I've started down the rabbit hole, I'll add a couple of my own:

    I loved that costume. Too bad they made his Dark Phoenix look hideous...and vein-y. His Phoenix look in Secret Wars was really good, too. Underappreciated, in fact.

    AvX will always be a missed...

    I think Endgame is the worst by a country mile, but I understand that I'm in the minority there. Age of Ultron looks like The Godfather compared to Endgame.

    As for the X-Men and humor subject, the...

    Thank you! I'd go on there, but I don't wanna derail the thread.

    Back to this movie, looking back at it, I still really enjoy it. I wanna go see it again, but that's a bit tricky when you've got...

    There was also that scene in Guardians of the Galaxy, vol. 2 where Rocket and Yondu joyfully murder all those Ravagers. Guess it's different when you put a retro song over the carnage.

    I miss Futurama. Such a great show.
  10. Poll: It sounds to me less that your issue is less that...

    It sounds to me less that your issue is less that Dark Phoenix "repeated" things from X3 and more that neither was as comics-accurate as you would like, which I understand. It just changes the intent...

    If I were a bettering man, I'd say they'll skip the Jean-focused Dark Phoenix Saga entirely and adapt Avengers vs X-Men instead, thus giving them a Dark Phoenix story of their own without it feeling...

    On the first bold, I completely agree. A lot of these crap stories and character beats could be avoided if some of these editors were any good at their jobs.

    On the second bold, I agree, but...

    Bingo. We're definitely in the piling on phase with Dark Phoenix right now. Give it 6 months to a year, and I think some attitudes will change.

    Look at the short-lived period in the The Force...
  14. Poll: If you just look at the cure-related story...

    If you just look at the cure-related story content, I agree that it isn't horrible; however, the Phoenix material there is so horrifically handled that it drags the entire movie down. Considering...

    Dark Phoenix was better. Easily.

    It actually gave the Phoenix plot the time of day (making Jean's character development the crux of the plot), it had great character dynamics and performances,...

    I appreciate that the Fox X-Men movies tried to use practical effects whenever possible. Yeah, they had their CGI flourishes and bonanzas, but their continued use of practicality helped them feel a...

    Mind elaborating? I don't recall seeing much myself (and I'm a Christian), but I'd be interested to see what I may've overlooked or had go over my head.

    Agreed. I'm always down for the "single-take" technique.



    I agree. This felt like the climax to a larger story, but I thought it was fun all the same.

    That said, since when have Bugs's...

    I don't actually use hashtags (or Twitter in general): I was just using it as pithy shorthand, but it's never too early to start campaigning. I think the Snyder Cut movement (of which I consider...

    Without seeing it, we don't know how it'd compare, but you're right in that it would definitely be more tonally cohesive with what came before. I'm of the opinion that it would be far better than the...

    It really is amazing how much of a difference the Director's Cut made to Daredevil: it still wasn't a great (or even a very good) movie, but it was infinitely better than the theatrical cut. The...

    #ReleaseTheKinbergCut, anyone?



    I was actually gonna say something along those lines but with a positive connotation since I consider myself to be among the Snyder Cut movement.

    In my mind, "X-Men" is gender-neutral. That's how it's been used in the books, shows, movies and marketing, and I don't think it's outdated by any means.

    Pragmatically, there's no reason why...

    Who knew I could still get hyped up by covers? Between seeing Cloud and Tifa go back-to-back in the FFVII Remake trailer and these, I've had a pretty revelatory day.

    To be fair, Vaughn was gonna do DoFP (using Singer's original cast and, presumably, his own), but he wanted it to round out the trilogy. Fox moved it up to second, and Vaughn left. That's his...
