They did a good job with Winter Soldier, but it's kind of a bummer that all the big stuff that follows is handled by a couple of dudes who are basically the dictionary definition of "workman-like." Like, it all works, but it does so, IMO, in spite of them.
Now, rewatching Kong: Skull Island, THAT director is the kind of dude who should be directing this huge pop culture tentpole event flicks. Too bad he seemingly dropped out of life after apparently being almost beaten to death in a Vietnam bar.
Seems like he has been working on Metal Gear Solid for quite some time.
Blaaaaaaaaah. Give that guy a comic book franchise or a horsefeathering Star War or something cool. Video game movies are forever damned.
