Infinity War - 7/10

Works better than you'd think, but it's still one of those over-crowded, endless Marvel movies. Thanos is awesome. I also always liked the Russos' take on the Avengers better.

Completely movie-ruining spoiler discussion follows.

Embarrassingly enough, I had to have this pointed out to me, but the movie pretty much tells you how they're going to undo the ending/cliffhanger - Dr. Strange mentions that he saw a bajillion possible futures and one where they beat Thanos, and when he just hands Thanos the Time Stone, he says it's "the only way" with no explanation (and nobody ever asks for one, which is silly.) Thanos even sets it up by saying, "No tricks."

I thought for a moment that it was pretty ballsy to have the movie end the way it does, but it's really just dumb once you realize what's going to happen next.

Dead end Drive-In 8/10
Great Ozploitation flick from 1986. In a fucked up alternative version of the 1990s, a dude and his chick go to the drive-in cinema and when the police themselves steal his wheels, they realize that they're stuck in some sort of concentration camp. Excellent car chases & stunts, lots of unhinged characters, great lines ("Shit, we're on fire!") and even some tits.


Manhunt 3/10
John Woo made a new film! Woohooo! In Japan! Sure, why not? For netflix! Ok, bring it on! Long story short, the man completely lost his touch. Extremely annoying editing, painfully stupid dialogue, tons of cringy Engrish (of course, there's no reason whatsoever that the characters speak English with each other), shitty overacting, boring action scenes (there's a boat chase that mostly consist of CGI... why?), CGI blood, runs almost two hours but feels like three. If you love Woo's old films, don't bother with this bullshit.

Ready Player One 6/10 pretty pointless but does its thing well enough

Mike: I can imagine a few possible fixes that'll happen in the next movie - if you think there's one that's the most likely, please spell it out for me!

I suspect they'll somehow reverse the polarity of the snap, making the dead alive and vice versa - but people don't like that since it kills too many people and in a sense Thanos still gets his way

if it's something closer to a total undo, that would be pretty annoying

And the next Spider-Man movie.

I guess the ending was kind of cool for a second because you don't expect it, and then you realize what's really going on, and it's just kinda dumb.

Yeah it didn’t hit me emotionally at all because it’s so obviously not permanent. Like you would show studio execs the end of that movie and tell them it was legit and all they would see is the biggest stacks of money ever made by movies melting into the ether like so many masked heroes.

My initial reaction was, oh, reboot. Some of these actors are getting a bit old. But then I realized Spider-Man isn't due for a reboot yet.

I must again humbly request that you spell things out. If there's something specific, I want to hear it!

And I only half-watched that predator trailer, but it looks pretty AVP2ish.

I don't really have anything more specific than what I posted... Dr. Strange obviously has some kind of plan, and it started with basically just handing the time stone to Thanos and letting things play out. I really have no idea what that plan could be, and I'm content with just waiting for the next movie. Whatever they've got cooking will probably be underwhelming and serviceable at best if we're lucky, maybe downright stupid. And I don't want to make it worse by headcanoning an explanation for myself that I'll end up liking better than what they actually do.

Dr. Strange probably just pulled some magic that resets to when he handed the gem to Thanus except now they have Captain Marvel !!! :wank:

OK, sure. It's not like the plot has ever been the strong part of these movies. I'm ok with knowing what'll happen, but not quite how. And as long as Rian Johnson isn't writing IW2, I presume it'll be fun seeing things play out.

Not sure if I said it before, but it's such a relief that this movie felt distinct from the other character overload movies (Avengers, Ultron, Civil War, Justice League).

How so? It pretty much felt like a decent enough Avengers movie to me, but really no different from the others.
