Just finished watching LadyBird. There's an hour and a half of my life I'll never get back. Load of shite.

Looks shit. Tempted to watch the shape of water but could also be a waste of time.

Anyone else hate superhero films to the point where you refuse to watch even the well received ones?

Or is that just me?

i actually quite like superhero movies, woman HATES them and with the cub only coming one tv time is at a premium so theres a lot i haven't seen. She's back to work though and works shifts so might actually try watch a few, anyone got the chronological order i should watch the Marvel ones?

I donít usually like Superhero movies or anything at all that isnít really real life type stuff. I canít get into Game of Throne because of this reason. As soon as I see a dragon or something in a show Iím usually done with it. Some exceptions would be the likes of Batman: The Dark Knight.

Off work at the minute and watching 80s and 90s movies. So much better than the stuff from this past 10 years.

I went through a lot of John Carpenter films recently, then randomly onto Miles Teller ones and for some reason the past few days I watched a load of supposedly good comedies (not normally into stupid comedies) such as Tropic Thunder, This Is The End, Pineapple Express and Scott Pilgrim Saves The World.  They were all pretty dung.

The quantity of genuinely good film-making has steadily improved in the last twenty years.

And anyone who doesnít see the genuine brilliance and craft in Ed Wright comedies is missing out on one of the most talented comedy directors of all-time, nrico.

This past while it seems like TV shows are more popular than sitting down to watch a movie.

Went to see Black Panther - thought the special effects were great, the overall depiction of Waconda, the Black Panther, how close it stayed to the comics with the various animal tribes etc... all great.
I was a little troubled by some of the messaging coming from the orphaned prince. Oppression no more, rise up, fight back....our time.... I would be worried about how that was perceived by people open to it..... thankfully the Black Panther chose a different path of peace and not to become what his people hated.  Still troubled leaving the cinema.

Overall great addition to the franchise
I will always keep myself mentally alert, physically strong and morally straight

Generally not a fan either, with the exception of the Nolan Batman ones and the Ironman series
I can only please one person per day. Today is not your day. Tomorrow doesn't look good either

"Get Out" is worth a watch. Not a horror as described in some reviews.

It is absolutely the most effective horror film Iíve seen in years.

Best film of 2017.

I thought it was a load of shite and a desperate storyline.

Have to agree that LadyBird was awful. An hour and a half of meandering, unfunny dross. Typical Hollywood up it's own hole movie.
