more time spent off-earth, better small scale personal stakes, arguably better villain motivation/characterization, Black Order introduced mini-boss vibe and even the swarming CGI minions they did have felt a bit more weighty and menacing than the ultron drones, the jet-skitauri, or the parademons. also no interdimensional portals or sky beams to be deactivated.

I totally agree that the tone and feel were pretty similar to the whedon team-ups. but if they're going through the motions, at least they're slightly different motions?

Sure. I don't hate it or anything, it's totally decent for what it is. Thanos is definitely a good villain and I've always liked space Marvel. I think I'm just... tired of these movies. I remember perfectly well when it was unthinkable that anyone would try to make movies like this, and then the early stages after the first X-Men movie when they only came out once in a blue moon and you'd always get super excited. So as a terminal geek, I feel like I'm being ungrateful, but it's just... eh. I'm not even that excited about the new Deadpool movie, and that has fucking Cable in it, of all things.

Heat - 8.5/10 (possible 9)

Pacino's coked out performance was a little grating but fit. The big shoot out's great but sometimes the geography of the scene gets a little murky and the honor killings at the end feel a bit forced. Other than that it's damn solid.

Watched an excellent '60s movie called "Requiem For A Heavyweight" with Anthony Quinn, Jackie Gleason, Mickey Rooney and a bunch of real boxers in the supporting cast including Muhammad Ali, Rory Calhoun and Jack Dempsey. Written by Rod Serling. About the fall of heavyweight champ Mountain Rivera. If you're into boxing movies, this is pretty much as good as it gets. 10/10

Can't believe how many people sat through Deadpool 2. Were they giving away cash at the theater or something.

Solo - 8/10

Way, way, way better than I expected it to be. This might drop to a 7 after some reflection, but for today, in the afterglow, it’s an 8.

Deadpool 2 - Eh/10

It's funny, and I like what they did with the Liefeld characters, especially Cable who is basically spot-on, but it's so busy being funny that it forgets to have a plot.

Spoiler - I think the biggest problem is that they wanted so badly to play a joke on the "superhero team-up" trope that the movie spends about 30% of its runtime setting that up, and then it's supposed to be funny when almost all of them die immediately, but it just ends up coming across as, well, what the fuck did I just watch all that shit for?

Maybe it was the theatre’s fault but I found the movie to be distractingly dark. Not tone wise, you know, picture/lighting wise.

Those RLM losers can eat every cock in the galaxy for the rest of time. Drunken morons nerd-broing with nothing interesting to say for extended periods while riding on the back of a needless explanation of why a shitty movie sucked that was released, what, a DECADE ago ? I’m good, thanks

Just because we share the same opinion doesn’t mean I want to listen to their rationale in their annoying voices voicing their annoying thoughts. We both thought the prequels sucked; I still think he sucks

i like RLM but i can easily see the alternate universe where their every gesture, vocalization and bored jaded joke style would send me into an utterly violent rage
