Thread: "The Last Movie You Saw" thread

    Not a movie, but the Andre the Giant documentary on HBO that aired last night was excellent. Lots of really cool insights into the early days of professional wrestling and how it became the mega machine it is today. Andre was a major, major part of that. Pretty humble guy, and could out drink everyone. Lots of really good info on his condition and his health right up until the end of his life. Highly recommend.

    Well, because he thought it was good sport. Because some men aren't looking for anything logical, like money. They can't be bought, bullied, reasoned, or negotiated with. Some men just want to watch the world burn.

    Saw "Infinity War" on opening day. I think those folks who have faithfully watched every movie over the years will really enjoy the payoffs in this movie, if leaving the theater feeling nearly every emotion, good and bad.

    I think those with marvel fatigue will not enjoy it.

    How many post-credit scenes do we get?

    There are four. Don't leave just because they stop the projector and turn the lights back on. Be patient; the last one is worth waiting for.

    You have to wait until after every last credit has scrolled by to get the post credit scene. Its an interesting nod to a) some characters that didn't make it into the regular movie b) how the events of the movie impacted them and c) an upcoming marvel movie.

    BTW, there are several scenes that are meant to get the audience excited. Each time they came on, the guy behind me would loudly holler, clap, and cheer. He also yelled out what the nod to the upcoming movie was during the post credits scene (OH!!!!! THATS ***** , YOU GUYS!) . Is this acceptable behavior in a theater? I say no. I think hearty laughter or an "ah!" or two is fine, but this crossed a line IMO. Curious what others thoughts are here.

    Opening night crowds for super hero films are... interesting. I've joked with my friend who chases down child predators that they should just park a van there.

    On that note, one of the unintentionally funniest things I've ever seen in a theater happened at the first Avengers movie.

    We were there opening night, we sat behind two adult men who were obviously very hardcore fans. Think Comic Book Guy from the Simpson's. They were REALLY into it the whole time.

    Near the end of the movie as you'll recall, Loki a demi-god from a distant planet has opened a hole in space and the earth is under attack by aliens. Billionaire super hero Iron Man directs a nuclear bomb up into the hole in space which blows up the mothership and closes the hole killing all the aliens. The Avengers look to the sky in horror as they watch an unconscious Iron Man plummet to the ground. Right before he hits the ground, the Incredible Hulk jumps up and catches him and slows his fall to the ground by dragging down the side of some buildings.

    Disgusted by the physics of that act (dragging down a building to stop Iron Man's fall), Comic Book Guy #1 leans over to Comic Book Guy #2 and says, "Pffft, like that could even happen."

    They were okay with everything I said up to that point and then it was like, "Yeah Marvel, you've gone too far..."

    I was in tears I was laughing so hard.

    We watched "I, Tonya" on Netflix Saturday night. It was surprisingly good. I ended up feeling sorry for Tonya Harding. Supremely talented woman, tough life, got few breaks, and was let down by just about everyone she depended on. Also surrounded by a lot of fools.

    We watched the latest Avengers movie Friday night. All I can say is that if you have not watched all the prior Avengers movies, you won’t understand much of this movie. It was clearly very well done, but I was looking at my watch after 30 minutes.

    Yes, outstanding! Don't buy popcorn for this movie -- everyone can hear you eat.

    Saw Solo. I had really low expectations based on the last Star Wars movie. I was very pleasantly surprised the whole way through. I enjoyed it a lot.

    I liked it too. Certainly better than The Last Jedi.

    The Last Jedi was trapped by the sins of The Force Awakens. Two decisions have really hamstrung that series: (1) the decision to completely reboot the story instead of making an original story and (2) the decision to include the aged original characters.

    "I know! After the rebels blew up our first and second Death Star, let's make another BIGGER one, with similar vulnerabilities." I could however excuse the Force Awakens because it was a reboot of sorts of the franchise and an attempt to capture the old feel (although I agree with what you said).

    Rogue One however I thought was excellent, in fact it might be my favorite Star Wars movie.

    One clear indicator of how the fanboys think about this though is to look at them generationally. If you ask young people which is better of the series, the original or the prequels, they'll say the prequels. If you ask someone in their 40s or older they'll say the originals. The painful fact for most though is that Star Wars has always suffered from poor acting and annoying characters. C3PO = Jar Jar Binks. Luke whining, "You want the impossible!" = Anakin Skywalker, "From my point of view the Jedi are evil."

    If you look at the negative reviews on Rotten Tomatoes from the audience (and even the professional critics) it is mostly coming from the fanboys, and people who are upset because their apple cart has been upset. If (the global) you are a passive 'fan' like me, you'll enjoy Solo I think.

    The funny thing is we were trying to see the new Avengers movie but got to the theater too late and had to settle for Solo. The Last Jedi was sooooo bad we didn’t intend to see Solo Glad we did!

    Mission Impossible Fallout - good movie, not great. They could have cut 45 minutes out of this movie and it would have been better.

    Anybody who has kids who have made it thru eighth grade, or made it thru themselves, will love that movie. It is pitch perfect. A wonderful, wonderful movie.
