Yeah, I wasn't counting his single line post credit cameos.


My bad, I was combining the scene where Loki talks basically to Thanos via his messenger in Avengers and the scene where Thanos is talking on his throne in GOTG. In my mind Loki was talking to Thanos on the throne but obviously that didnt happen.

I looked this up a while back... I think the correct viewing order as far as getting the timelines right is as follows:

Captain America: The First Avenger
Iron Man
Iron Man 2
The Incredible Hulk
Thor
The Avengers
Iron Man 3
Thor: The Dark World
Captain America: The Winter Soldier
Guardians of the Galaxy
Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2
Avengers: Age of Ultron
Ant-Man
Captain America: Civil War
Black Panther
Doctor Strange
Spider-Man: Homecoming
Thor: Ragnarok
Avengers: Infinity War
Ant-Man and the Wasp

Chronologically, I think Captain Marvel is supposed to slot-in before Iron Man.

Which is before Iron Man, but after the first Captain America.

Watched Ant-Man & The Wasp tonight. Now I get the new Avengers trailer. Yay!

Also watched The Predator. It was a lot of silly fun, but oh boy do you have to take your disbelief and launch it into the sun to believe some of the travel and movement logistics in this thing.

I wouldn’t be surprised if this film swept the Oscars next year:

No really, I think this movie will light a fire in the hearts of men. That fire will stand for hope. People all over the world will see how petty their quarrels and plights are after seeing Godzilla and humanity unite to stop the ultimate villain in Ghidorah from destroying the planet.

Don’t be surprised if...

Mothra becomes a popular female and humanist icon. Her fearlessness and willingness to sacrifice for good will shine like a beacon, a beacon displaying hope, for people of all genders and creed.

Rodan becomes a popular symbol for redemption, of the hope born from a second chance.

First-round voting has kicked-off for the Academy’s Best Original Song and Best Original Score awards, and four buzz-worthy scores have already been disqualified. The causes behind the disqualifications vary, but the Solo: A Star Wars Story score might have the most embarrassing reason: someone forgot to submit it in time. Other scores that didn’t make the cut include Mandy, Green Book and The Other Side of the Wind.

What did I do to deserve the tidal wave of garbage that is Aquaman itself? I refuse to believe DC Comics can ever come up with a worse movie than this. Aquaman is such an eyeball-scald and an eardrum-shiv it makes me long for the relative excellence of Justice League.

Picture the worst Pirates of the Caribbean mashed up with the demented psychedelia of Green Lantern and you’ll have some idea of the feel of Aquaman, which even throws in some Sahara scenes straight out of a regrettable Mummy picture. Whether it’s Nicole Kidman’s kickboxing, Willem Dafoe’s man-bun, or the cheesy Bill-and-Ted-style guitar riff that introduces Aquaman on the soundtrack, every choice is crazy bad.


The whole production is like a gargantuan load of digital garbage being tossed into the CGI Cuisinart. Sea monsters come and go with so little explanation that you can hardly guess whether a giant croco-fish is to be dodged or hailed like a taxi (as Orm does). Mera saves Arthur in what appears to be a sporty catfish-mobile. This is one of those movies where the VFX guys are giving the story guys wedgies in the locker room, and the story guys just cringe and try not to look like they’re being humiliated. And yet the effects are woeful. A gun gizmo that shoots “energized plasma” looks like a plastic Super Soaker. In the Brine Kingdom (Really? Brine? Scary brine?) the villains are crustaceans who are less intimidating than anything in The Little Mermaid. Manta, in full bad-guy regalia, sports a football-shaped head that reminded me of Stewie Griffin.


The major rule for all jokes and plot twists is for them to be as dumb and contrived as possible. Confronted with an ancient set of rusty gears beneath the Sahara, Mera instantly guesses a single drop of water will oil them up nicely, then uses her magical water-extraction powers to draw a bead of sweat from Arthur’s brow. Meanwhile, director James Wan films the fights with maximum attention to cliché — Matrix time, the circling camera, lots of “Aaaaaaaggh!” and “He killed my father!”

Sure I can.

And before anyone cries, yes, I know that this movie is 75% fresh.

I also know that the quotes from the National Review, which renders them pointless. I just thought it was some funny prose

i thought aquaman was the only remotely redeemable part of justice league (unless you count enjoying a fun-terrible movie as redeemable) so I still wanna see it

All of the trailers look like the drunkin'-est, bitchin'-est van mural come to life, so horsefeathers that review. It looks extra stupid-fun.

Spider-verse is the best Spider-man movie they've ever made, AINEC.

It was clever, it was emotional, the animation and art was off-the-charts. Even the soundtrack was shockingly good.

Ready Player One has come to HBO and I thought it was fantastic. So much fun and nostalgia overload.
