Re: Black Panther

That is a fair point about the source material being fantasy based and to remember that when judging the content of a film based on said structure. That being said I think that has translated into both Marvel and DC thinking Fantasy= Parody and they opt fot more humour than usually necessary in ord...

Re: Black Panther

I definitely understand where your critcisms are coming from. I definitely felt the lack of humour was a better approach to this film. Marvel tends to have random ill placed humour. It worked for Deadpool because it was the main tone for Deadpool. Marvel needs to step away from the mashup movies an...

Re: Black Panther

Disney/Marvel hit the box office mother lode with this black blockbuster, and the middle was done exceptionally well, but there was little humor and much macho/femcho posturing throughout. The Lion King style music was a definite plus which it could have utilized more. And of course Disney/Marvel ju...

The Post

Well done suspenseful drama about the publication of the top secret Pentagon Papers which delineated the history of US involvement in Vietnam from Truman through Johnson, but not Nixon as the film portrays it.

Re: My new all time favorite poster--Deadpool 2

It's mildly amusing if you understand the references but "heretical" art in general was already passe a decade ago in the West. Even religious folk barely get riled up by this stuff anymore. It seems strangely out of touch for Deadpool's usually "hip" marketing. Sorry to disagre...
