I haven't watched the film yet but almost everyone agrees that she gave a fantastic performance. Well deserved, hopefully sje can get an Oscar too.

One last ride... Who would have thought that the Guardians of the Galaxy of all superhero characters would become that popular.

So, can I expect another mid movie with cheap costumes? Or are they trying something new, given the scores.

Word of mouth over at Era seems quite positive, most seem to agree that the scores were way too harsh. It's possible that the general weirdness of the setting put many critics off. Based on what I've read I am pretty excited to watch it, a number of people made comparisons to Star Wars and Star Trek. Also, Kang is praised across the board as a great villain.

Watch Antman yesterday! While I liked it, I made the mistake of seeing it in 3D and most of its visual beauty was lost. Overall it was a very focused movie, didn’t feel like it dragged anywhere but at the same time it didn’t do anything too crazy. While the world was very inventive, most of Antman fights were quite uninventive.

overall i guess i would say it was really fun ride , i would maybe love to see much more of Johnatan Majors than we did , but i guess this is Antman movie in the end so lots of stuff was focused on the antfamily :cool: Definitely enjoyed it more than most of Phase 4 movies.

sidenote:
Modok is silly as fuck and but ultimately kinda fits , but definitely gonna causelots of anger online, there is also one silly Hank Pym related plotpoint that twitterinas will hate too

both postcredit scenes were like nergasms for comicbook reades

Just watched Quantumania, visuals are servicible, Majors is amazing, Newton as Cassie fits well, but the plot is pretty messy, they should have expanded the Quantum Realm a lot more before this movie, I was more interested to know about the people in there than the main plot, but overall I liked it, it was nowhere near as bad the reviews make it to be, IMO, way way better than Eternals and Dark World. I'm ready for more Kang.

MODOK was done wrong tho'.

Very Winter Soldier-y, I have high hopes for it as long as they don't go too dark with it.

Yeah it will be interesting what will happen with Kang, I think it’s best to replace and not even explain it in canon. Because how it looks it certainly would taint a lot of my enjoyment of MCU whenever they are a key element.

Yeah it's not looking good. We should wait for the trial of course before passing judgment but if more victims are coming forward then a clear pattern is emerging.

Adam Driver is a great choice for Reed, I hope he gets the role.

It has already been established in canon that variants can look different from one another (the Spider-men, Sylvie and the other Lokis) so a recast won't really need any explanation.

Yeah saw it last night and loved it. It felt like it had real genuine heart. And it was also very disturbing! In all the right ways and in a way that makes sense considering where James Gunn comes from.

It's been too long since the last MCU TV show, bring it on!

Saw Guardians 3 and I didn't like it. The emotional bits had a very low punchy cheapness to it and I feel the ending didn't pay off.

That's a shame, I stopped going to the theaters so I'll have to wait a while before I watch it at home. I'm honestly not a big fan of James Gunn when he has lots of creative control so I don't know if I will love it like Guardians 1 or I'll be disappointed by it like Guardians 2.

I didn't hate it but it just landed flat for me
