It wasn't bad it just wasn't Avengers 1 good. It was just so obviously another connector instead of a bookend film.

Inherent Vice is the dopest dope I've ever smoked.

If it doesn't cause a great depression economically opening weekend I'm putting all stock into the Universal Dark Universe. Tom Cruise Mummy looking pretty good about now.

My favorite Twitter reaction last night was "Closest you'll get to a Paul Thomas Anderson film in the Marvel universe".

PTA-esque scenes I can't wait to see:

  • Widow gives Mark Ruffalo and angry handjob while he's brushing his teeth in order to provoke Hulk to come out

  • Captain America collects pudding cups the entire movie because he decides he needs the power of flight

  • Phil Coulson asks a porn star to have sex with Tom Holland in front of him so he can see what he's made of

  • Robert Downey Jr. introduces himself to Wakanda as "A vibranium man" and attempts to manipulate the country into signing over their resources

  • Thor gets high af and tries to track down the Golden Fang in a really sidetracked subplot with great visuals and characters

  • Michael Douglas interrogates Paul Rudd about that time he had sex with his aunt

  • Benedict Cumberbatch finds a hidden talent for dressmaking

What is the worst MCU film? by Evertonius in movies

Dr. Strange was one I missed in theaters because it came out while I was at a music festival and I got behind on movies I needed to see, but when I saw it my initial reaction was this is kind of like a video game reskin. Like, it's still a by the numbers Marvel film. It wasn't really revolutionary as far as character motivation or arc or plot or really anything writing wise. I think it's the visuals and delving into the world of magic that really sold people on it. Like this feels like Iron Man but it's got the skin of Dr. Orpheus from Venture Bros. Idk that's the best example I have off the top of my head but you know what I mean.

I remember when that movie came out and it was kinda hilarious. I have very little investment in these movies but it was funny to watch a subreddit that loves "mindfucks and twists" flip out because Iron Man 3 actually caught every single person by surprise. Like, people were livid and it was because the marketing fooled us all so hard. I mean what kind of major blockbuster and bookend trilogy film hires Sir Ben Kingsley to play the villain only the reveal he's not even a villain? I thought it was really well done because the whole movie is about putting focus of blame on foreign terrorism while the real enemy is the rich white guy, which is relevant and clever when you consider we all thought the enemy of the movie was a foreign terrorist.

I get it, they messed with a villain that had potential and made us all look like fools. I know there's reasons to be upset other than being actually surprised. But they did actually surprise us and that's pretty impressive considering how hyped up the movie was, how big it was, and how many people tried to pick it apart before it came out.

Jesus Christ leave some for other commentors. How is there supposed to be any sort of good discussion when every movie to be discussed is in one comment?

Blue Jasmine was top tier Allen as well. But also it blows my mind Annie Hall didn't make your list. One of my all time favorites.

Boogie Nights is more relatable and accessible and has a lot more sex. I personally like it more than TWWB, Boogie is in my top five.

That said, as far as filmmaking, acting, and revolutionary directing goes, Blood takes the cake.

IMO The Master is really good but fails to be an engaging film for a lot of its runtime. I like Inherent Vice better.
