    The thing I have found interesting is I find mostly men have good opinion and women generally do not.

    As a feminist, I would have been more happy if it was more rah-rah about feminism actually. I was surprised it was as toned down as it was.

    All my woman friends saw it as rah rah feminism.
    At least that is what they told me or wrote on their Facebook.

    Did they talk about what they specifically saw as rah-rah?

    My wife liked the movie about as much as I did. Now, she's seen every MCU movie, and enjoys action and sci fi, so it's already part of her genre. But she has always, always enjoyed "chicks kicking ***", as she puts it.

    She liked that she was independent, and that Sam Jackson's Nick Fury (known bad***) was more the support character, as a woman would often be in a male driven action movie.

    The end when she was like, "I have nothing to prove to you. "

    Really? That one line?

    Ok. I don't see how one line that isn;t really all that feminist makes the whole movie rah-rah feminism, but everyone has opinions I guess.

    Recently watched Girl in the spiders web, Bad times at the el royal, the mule, and The Equalizer 2 . They were all disappointing. I could pick them apart but it’s not worth our time.

    The only "Girl" movie in the series that I've liked has been the first one, the European version.

    I liked all of the European ones and loved the first American one that was directed by David Fincher.

    The original millennium series was great. The remakes are ok imo. I didn't think spiders web was bad. But it wasn't great either. Ok for a one time watch. For my money, the Scandanavian countries make the best thrillers right now.

    Maybe because men and women focus on different things? I agree with your take that the feminism seemed very toned down.

    The one scene that really stuck out to me was the "smile" guy with the motorcycle. The rest seemed like nice empowerment/girl power themes, but not the overtly "ugh sjw garbage" some people were claiming it would be.

    Do agree that overall it was ... not an upper echelon Marvel movie. It felt almost rushed, like they needed to pack in way too much to get Carol onscreen in time for Endgame without her being a total enigma to the audience.

    Zoom kind of hit the nail for me - her "growth" exists, but more as her remembering herself and then coupling that to her powers and then unlocking it.

    The ending of the movie certainly hints at the next move for her, though the timeline of it might be off.

    I finally got around to watching Aquaman.

    I was disappointed. The cinematography could have been much better, IMO. It was too "cartoony". The writing and acting were corny. Overall it was boring.

    Boring??? Cartoony, silly and over the top? Yes, absolutely. Plot stretched too thin, also. But I was at no point bored, lol.

    Well, we all have different tastes of course. I was that way with the Aflek Batman movies. Fell out cold.

    I thought so. The only DCU movies I've liked are Wonder woman and Aquaman. The others are absolutely not my taste.

    Watched the documentary Three Identical Strangers. I won't reveal too much because it's kind of a mystery but it's about three triplets who were adopted by three different families The families who adopted them didn't know they were triplets. 7/10.

    Man of Steel is one of the worst movies I have ever seen.
    My favorite part of BvS was the fact that it wasn't as painful as Man of Steel.

    Finally sat down and watched Deadpool 2, and it made me happy. Of course less shock and surprise compared to the first one because I was expecting it, but at the same time, they did right by it by taking the bigger budget and keeping the same vibe and soul from the first one.

    I thought BvS extended cut was thoroughly enjoyable actually. Fortunately that version was the first one I saw, and now I’m totally glad it happened that way.

    I still haven't seen it. I think it would like it more as I heard it makes it less of a jumbled mess of random things happening on the screen for little to no reason.

    That version seemed pretty cohesive to me..... and the flow IMO was quite fine and seamless, especially given the complexity involved.

    Pretty disappointing then that the extended cut wasn’t the theatrical release.... in that they sold out quality for the hopes of additional profits from the extended cut, when it was clear as day which one was the better version. Should’ve just been the extended cut and that’s it.

    Agreed. If the movie is good people will see it over and over again. Heck, the movie just needs to be entertaining for that to happen. The extra minutes and eliminating the bullet subplot, and I probably would have at least enjoyed the movie.

    Joaquin Phoenix an extremely underrated actor I believe gives Heath Ledger a run for his money.

    Phoenix will take it to a whole nother level by inspiring viewer empathy. Heath did dramatic & methodical crazy so incredibly well but Joaquin is gonna flip this thing on its head I suspect. He’ll make the Joker seem like he genuinely belongs in the loony bin, whereas Heath’s Joker is one-dimensional and just feels like a highly eccentric born-psychopath in full control of his faculties, like it was simply a career decision for him to become a criminal.

    At the 22 sec mark - "The worst part about having a mental illness is people expect you to behave as if you DONT"

    Just hope they don't Norman Bates this with the Mother stuff. I'd rather he be more Alex DeLarge~esque

    Joaquin is closer to the original Conrad Veidt inspiration tho...

    Cuch, did you ever get around to Martyrs yet?

    What about Timecrimes?

    You can’t read up on these beforehand just so you know.

    Definitely not underrated! Dude has been killing it for years, and directors love him. He takes great risks in his roles. One of my favorite actors.
