I watched X-men Apocalypse. It was very boring and dull.

Yes it seems like a good movie was filmed, just not presented as its a mess (though a wacky fun one). I would like to see a directors cut.

I would like to go to LA so I can see podcast comedians shows, but I think you need to drive to get around in California? Due to America being fundamentally broken.

It is one of the funniest/wackiest, but the start of bloated badly cut plotting, that left character motivations and coherency on the cutting room floor. Big swathes barely make sense. Avengers 2 kicked this up a notch and had a lot less charm to make up for it, and was a worrying trend of the franchise in general

The Cap series seemed pretty immune from this (possibly because they were the most willing to step away from the exact formula of the other films) and the runners of that are moving onto the new Avengers. Though I guess going by the Whedon feedback, the actual runners are further up than the director and could still be an issue.

Iron Man 3 is definitely a lot better than Miami Vice.

Captain USA and the Civil War

I was really surprised how well plotted it was, and character justifications etc all hang together really well. When I first heard the concept I thought "oh great, going to be another convoluted shambles" but its definitely the best of the sequel movies for having a properly thought out and complete story.

The new characters were great, lot of fun beats and good comedy stuff despite the emo plot, definitely in the top handful of Marvel movies for those that like the dumb superchaps sort of thing, get on it.


I really like how they handled the big divide...

But yes, a great re-invigoration of the Franchise That Will Last A 1000 Years and a big step up from the massive plot problems of the Iron Man 3s and Avenger 2s.

I also watched  The Hollow Crown, the new ones, which continues to be the best Shakespeare adaptions ever made and also a must watch for people who like grown up content too.

On the ending

Otherwise pretty great movie. But I would be very interested in what was or wasnt reshot and what the original movie was like.

10 Cloverfield Lane.

A really great interesting movie that for some reason has a totally jarring and bizarre ten minutes stuck on at the end. that I can only assume came from some coked out studio execs or some sort of mix up in the editing bay.

They hammered home the soft reboot aspect by coping large swathes of the original movie structure and feel etc, they didnt need that specific element as well, all of that stuff was some of the weakest parts. I was a lot more interested in the new cast and their dynamics than the REMEMBER ORIG TRIJ STAR WARS and THIS AINT YOUR DADDYS PREQUELS stuff.

Though for me the weirdest bit was...

Still, pretty good movie, despite some massive plot holes and over reliance on nostalgia. Hopefully the second feels confident enough to ditch most of the latter and straightens out some of the former. And fills in some of the grey stuff about what the fuck is actually going in this new universe.

Batman Vs Superman

Pretty hot trash movie. Seems like theres an hour in there of an actually interesting movie stuff but edited into incomprehension, an hour of a fun bombastic movie, and an hour of studio mandated nonsense. None of it works together and even so long they seemed to have edited out transitions and scene setting etc just to make room for what they had, incomprehensible choices in places, but strangely watchable if just to look at how butchered it was.

7/10

They do have a lot of great museums and galleries. met4life. I didnt quite see the appeal of the other landmark spots (tall building and famous streets and such), but liked the little cruise around the islands the tourist book ticket throws in and obviously they have pretty great food and entertainment options all over... the main problem is paring down the 500 "must visit" places everyone whos visited before tells you to hit up, or you would have to change bar every 40 minutes to see every hipster cocktail bar or working class dive or live mexican wrestling thing everyone insists is the true new york experience.

Oh the snow leopard is long dead, they had to put it down after it mauled some drunk british guy who tried to rescue it.

Me and Snowy were just meant to be together

The best bit of new york is the tiny little zoo in the middle of central park, where the snow leopard just looks at you in the rain, whispering save me.
