[spoiler]Where he prevented Inara from being killed in the first place, thereby making the entire movie never happen? Yeah, I saw it.

I'm being vague because I don't know if the theatrical release had more/other post-credits scenes.

I assume the time travel device will be involved in Avengers 4 somehow.[/spoiler]

I'm thinking Thor will have to access the time infinity stone somehow. If they wound it all the way back to Ragnarok I'll be mollified.

Ok, say Infinity War, Ant Man, and Pacific Rim Uprising. Just gotta see Solo and Incredibles 2, and I'll basically be caught up with the blockbusters for the year. Hooray for holiday weekends.

Ending of A:IW was basically the same as Terminator 3, with the added bonus that you know damn well they have to undo it. StarLord pulls a Chief Tyrol and fucks it up for everyone.

Ant Man was a fun solo flick, with a more-sympathetic-than-usual "villain" (I didn't like Killmonger nearly as much as I was expecting to - he was much more two-dimensional than I had been lead to believe) and some great comedic bits.

Pacific Rim was MOAR GIANT ROBOTS, grab the popcorn. But a bunch of the stuff from the trailer seemed to be missing. (And also the trailers gave away the ending.)

Deadpool is in the X-Men franchise. They don't technically cross over into the MCU, even though it heavily spoofs it.

War for the Planet Of The Apes (2018) Couldn't get past the first 15 minutes. Dreary to the point of painful to watch.

DeadPool 2 (2018) There's not really a movie's worth of material there. More like a strung together series of comedic vignettes. I wish Brolin were given funny lines. Maybe these movies are a bit of a release for fans of the genre. Not being one I may not really get it. I like the cast and I suppose an eventual pairing of Hugh Jackman and Ryan Reynolds in a new movie is someone's wet dream. Not bad though.

I have a rule; I will not pay money to see blockbuster movies and the only time I devote to them is when I would otherwise be sleeping. But even with that sometimes I feel cheated. "What a waste, I could have been asleep!"

The Maltese Falcon (1941) Cleanses the blockbuster dreck from the brain and reminds me of how much fun a movie can be even when the story is so slight as to be non existent. All style and mood but it's done with modesty, so it works.

Deadpool 2...better than Infinity War, not as good as Ragnarok or Black Panther. None were as good as Logan.

I'm honestly not the biggest watcher of superhero movies.

For example,
better than Infinity War, not as good as Ragnarok or Black Panther.
I have seen none of these three.

I'm glad to hear I'm not alone.

A friend posted a picture on my Facebook page of Winnie the Pooh wearing the Infinity Glove, or whatever it's called, thinking I'd find it amusing. I had to have him explain it to me.

Because I had heard it was funny. And I *know* Ryan Reynolds is funny.

I have seen some superhero movies. I've seen the X-Men-related ones. And I've seen the Batman ones. And I've seen Jessica Jones(which is kind of an anti-superhero superhero show).

And I actually used to read X-Men comic books when I was younger. But superhero movies have never really been my thing.

Captain Blood. (1935)
Not quite as Swashbuckle-y as I remembered. Still the big sword fight with Basil Rathbone is impressive.

That's a great movie with Olivia De Havilland and the Tasmanian reprobate.

That movie got me interested in the history of British rebellions.

+1

I recall a scene in that where Bogart gets the drop on a succession of bad guys that he ends up with more guns than he can hold. I thought he very brief moment of comedy was well placed.
And Proteus brought the upright beast into the garden and chained him to a tree and the children did make sport of him.

Partway through Black Panther, had to stop watching because life happened. I'm really uncomfortable with both hereditary theocratic monarchs, trial by combat, and with a country that stands idle and aloof when it's futuristic technology could do so much good in the world. They can repair spinal injuries and they hide that from the world. So Im not convinced the good guys are actually good yet. Entertaining though!

Finished it last night. Great movie, though I was disappointed in the depiction of Africa, it would have been nice if Wakanda had its own culture, rather than a panafrican buffet, it made film feel very American. It was a bold and laudable move to make the baddy the right one, even if his methods were evil, and have him change the King's mind. I wish they'd worked more on the fight scenes, the camera work was phenomenal, but the cgi black panther lacked a sense of mass.

There's a video somewhere (youtube?) about filming the bar fight, how it was all done in one take with all the action shots happening simultaneously. Pretty cool.
(Personally, I thought it was just another superhero movie, no big deal.)

Not sure about the one-take aspect, but you are probably thinking of this post here.

Trailer for a shot-by-shot live action remake of "Toy Story 3".

Just to be clear: scenes with "only" the toys were made using stop motion so strictly speaking not all "live".

The full movie is projected to be completed in 2019.

The Mummy (2017/ Tom Cruse)
Jesus, what a mess.
They even manage to throw Russell Crow in there as Dr. Jekyll; and then try to position it as a superhero type origin story.
The Brandon Frasier version is much better.
