    Moliere movie reviews are the best.

    That makes more sense. I was wondering why you were upset that something was "not even fictional".

I’m falling into the Walter bucket soon of avoiding them altogether...unless they have Natalie Portman in them.

    And on Solo, I’ll never judge a film by the preview but I’m breaking that rule on this one. Holy cow the preview was bad. They had better have come up with a decent story or this thing should have gone straight to dvd.

    I actually enjoyed Black Panther. I'm probably not going to watch any more Avengers, and certainly not Ant Man and _____ or any other spinoffs (unless the reviews are awesome!). But I thought the plot was smart, and the acting was pretty good. I loved the vision sequences, and how they spent time telling why Killmonger became the way he did. I liked the confrontation between T'challa and his father in the second vision. Some really good angsty stuff about actions and consequences.

    Glad I saw it. I'd give it a B.

    You guys are funny. I thought I was a cinema snob-- I used to hit the indie theatre 2x a week, was good for 8+ movies each Sundance when I was in Utah, and could have a good time critiquing a film regardless of how palatable or accessible it was. I also like to unwind at popcorn flicks once in a while-- it's a different experience. It's cool to nap at a popcorn flick if you're tired, and it's ok to get into the cheap suspense and action-- it's Mickey D's of film watching. That is the premise of a popcorn flick and people are still . That's like going through the drive through and complaining about how greasy the fries are! I see borderline outrage at the superhero movies among a set here to the point where guys like NWcoug are apologizing for liking it ^

    Ant Man has Paul Rudd it. I have a policy that I will watch almost anything with Paul Rudd in it, so I'll watch that one. The one exception is his stint on Friends, even though I'm sure he was great on the show.
    The crux of what has traumatized us about CUF/CG is that we thought they were our friends. And their identity as BYU fans turned out to be the most important thing to them. What empty lives! What a damning indictment of the LDS Church!

    The first Ant Man movie was one of the few comic book movies that didn't totally suck. I liked it.

    There are two saving graces of Ant Man. Michael Pena's (Luis) character is the first. And working in the Cure's 'Plainsong' in the movie. Otherwise, it's a below average Marvel movie.

    I think I’m just tired of them. There are some great superhero movies: the dark knight trilogy, Ironman, doctor strange (yes I liked it), etc. But there are some really bad ones and recently Marvel just seems to hit the same plot/note on all of them.

    I rarely watch them in the theater since I’d prefer to not spend the time/energy on them. I’ll watch them at home or on the bus. Even MJ was watching Spider-Man Homecoming last night, which I’ll admit was pretty good the first time through, but the second time it was boring so I didn’t stick around to finish it.

Even good so far as to adopt the orphaned boy.

    I also felt like Bale's character was a little too much supreme hard ass/blubbering emotional wreck. Them sprinkle in some I don't give a shit stoicism just for fun.

    We saw this the other night and I enjoyed it and thought it was funny. Jason Bateman has carved out a nice little career for himself playing the same person in every film he does, he does it well and people seem to enjoy it.

    I finally watched Get Out. I really enjoyed it. I think the movie would have been better though if Paul Rudd was in it, but at least Jimmy James had a role.
