Really? I've heard it wasn't as good as Winter Soldier.

There's no place I can be since I found Serenity.


I didn't think it was as good as Winter Soldier, or even The First Avenger, but then again, I rarely agree with the consensus.

I got "Aren't these somewhat intelligent people, can't they do a better example than beating each other up with CGI for two hours?"
But then, all we know is gratuitous violence these days...

All I can say is, if you don't think this is the best yet, then you're not paying attention. It speaks back to The First Avenger, has hilarious moments, and ,imo, mirrors the discussion about security vs freedom that's been going on for some time in this country.

And I love, love LOVE Steve Roger's stance on principle. I was afraid it would come off completely artificial, but it doesn't. I got it, though I can see how others might not.

I'm not obligated to agree with you, and I don't, but it's not because I wasn't paying attention.

It's one thing to stand on principle (which I assume all of them were), but another thing entirely to do so at the expense of harming many others in the process.

With great power comes great responsibility. Hardly any of them were acting responsibly.

I think I may be done with the MCU. Not sure why I've kept up, especially now that Joss is no longer involved.

I thought it was great. I understood both sides of the argument and I can make a case for either of them. I think I would side with Ironman personally. That's the only way to deescalate the situation.

Anyway the execution of the whole film was done really well. The dialog was pretty good. Not nearly as forced as Avengers 2. The fight scenes were well choreographed and felt really brutal.

I left wanting more. More Ironman. More Cap. More Spider-man. More Black Panther. More Ant Man. Take my money!

Thank you so much for this post. I was leaning against seeing it, but this changed my opinion.
As usual, I was hoping irondude would die, but in this one I was

Select to view spoiler:


also dismayed that he decided to corrupt the kid as well - otherwise I already assumed he would do any wrong that could be done, and was not surprised at all that he too the unprincipled stance that he did. I was also ticked that Black Widow continued doing wrong even after CA explained why she was wrong - I don't know if she is normally this thick or unprincipled, or her character was just co-opted merely so that irondude would not be the only wrong jackhole.


I will repeat that Rapknight's point about the principles is pertinent, and an excellent reason for the right people doing the right things, and jackhole irondude is merely doing wrong as usual, and supporting Brenda's view that some bozos just want to exercise violence instead of use their heads.
I also enjoyed Wanda (Elizabeth Olsen) more than I expected with such a limited or shallow character.

I think Olsen showed how good she is in the Avengers movie. She did so much with very little screen time and sparse script. I think she makes an excellent Wanda (who was
often torn between her loyalty to her brother and Magneto). She was in love with Thunderbolt a mute mutant.

Could you tell I was an avid comic book reader, voracious is the word.

My son took me to see it today (Sunday) and I have to say I kinda liked it. It was funny and entertaining, but a bit too long. I got a little bored with the constant violence; it seemed a bit forced and contrived, but when Spiderman (that kid was quite good) and Ant-Man came into the fray - it perked up my interest. Paul Rudd can make any scene so freaking awesome.

I know what they were trying to do (The director and writers), but it was a bit melo-dramatic for my taste. I really liked Scarlett Johansen and Elizabeth Olsen in this one. And I get what you say about great power and responsibility, although they could have done a better job of conveying that message.

Looking back , I just wanted to add that I too though the Olsen chick has shined in these movies. I literally had no clue who she was until Godzilla, and then forget it was her when I first saw Age of Ultron. At first, I was like , ...' OK, now which twin is she ? '.

( * ETA - And by ' twin ', I really meant is she Ashley or Mary-Kate !!! )

If you are interested n her work, I cannot really point to Godzilla, other than increasing her Q score.
She did awesome work in Martha Marcy May Marlene. I don't recall much action, more of a Merchant Ivory paced flick, but definitely situated in America. Her performance there made me want to see more, even willing to suffer through Godzilla to see her work.

I just like lookin' at her, is all. I wouldn't say I'm as infatuated w/ her on-screen presence as I am , say... Scarlett Johnansson.

And for some reason, my mind on ' pretties ', I was really impressed with Morena in Deadpool. Not just to look at either. I loved her character ! I've not caught her in too much since Serenity ... V ? Stargate ? Meh... nice to see her, but that wasn't exactly brilliant writing for her. I thought she really brought it as Vanessa.

Hey JSF,

I agree, she was good in "Martha Marcy May Marlene" but I was really turned on by her in the Avengers movie. Her portrayal of the Scarlet Witch had depth
and she showed a great understanding of the character within the Marvel Universe. I was greatly impressed by her in those movies.

Okay Rappy, now you're scaring me.

Again, I find myself agreeing - like 100!!!
This Olsen can act, and she's easy on the eyes. I'm going to go out on a limb here, but I think, if they ever do a prequel or sequel to Serenity, she could play the part of River. Did I go out too far!?

We're talking movies and comic books here. Let's not get it twisted.

I am a Jedi, like my father before me. The Force is strong in our family, my father has it, my sister has it and I have it.

Let go of your hate, anger, fear. They lead to the Dark Side.
Consume you it will. I could feel the conflict within you, I will
never turn.

I was really into that when I was a kid and devoured every comic book I could get my hands on. I was into the usual - Superman, Batman, The Flash etc.; then along came Marvel with Spiderman, Thor, Daredevil, X-Men, Ironman,
the Hulk. And then, Sgt. Fury and Shield.

Wow, that brings me back a long ways.

I lost track of my comics back in my twenties. Now they're back with a vengeance.
