    4K Blu Ray - anyone collecting?

    Looking forward to the Lazenby collection.

    Batman: Arkham Knight

    If you're talking about the mandatory time trials, I raged hard at that part. I remember exiting the game and doing something else for a bit just to let myself calm down (and I didn't want to fall out with the game as I was really enjoying it). Only thing that bothered me though, I absolutely love the rest of it.

    Avengers: Endgame (April 2019)

    I think that was intended for the Captain Marvel thread.

    Avengers: Endgame (April 2019)

    Came to post something similar myself, especially regarding that last few seconds. They can just CGI a head in to mislead everyone. Not that I don't find that kind of thing annoying (just don't show what you don't want to show).

    Avengers: Endgame (April 2019)

    I'm thinking maybe they thought it looks cool.

    Avengers: Endgame (April 2019)

    When I saw Captain Marvel, a guy in the back whooped at the end of the mid-credit scene. I know this is par for the course in America, but in stoic old Blighty something about that really warmed my heart. Steve being front and centre in the new poster means a lot to me (I've realised I can't just say "Cap" anymore). Six weeks is nothin'
  7. Another bloody walking simulator.

    What’s the worst film you have ever seen?

    ... Have you seen Blackjack?

    What’s the worst film you have ever seen?

    Some of them straight up look like the same VHS rips you'd get from a torrent site. Check out War of the Wizards, by the way. Proper 5th gen VHS copy but I got a kick out of it.

    What’s the worst film you have ever seen?

    Genuinely three of my favourite movies. The Fountain is in my top ten The Room cost a thousand times more to make than Primer. The argument for expectation versus flat-out incompetence always comes up with this topic. While I've been severely burned by stuff like the Star Wars prequels I just can't lump them in with the worst garbage I've ever watched. Of 3918 movies I've logged on Letterboxd I've only given 105 1-star ratings, so I'm pretty forgiving. Even then there are 1-star movies that I've kind of enjoyed while recognising that there's absolutely nothing good about them (Cliff Twemlow's magnum opus GBH springs to mind, or R.O.T.O.R, which had me crying with laughter at one point). Usually for me the worst crime a movie can commit is to be boring throughout, but there are some that just made me rage at their existence. I guess I'm going to go with two films that made me physically angry to watch: X-Ray aka Hospital Massacre Beasts of the Southern Wild Push comes to shove... I think it's X-Ray. A film I hated so much I bought the blu-ray for the commentary, because I wanted someone to explain to me what value they thought the movie had.
  11. It was great. Larson nailed the role, and importantly showed she can handle the physicality even if the hand-to-hand stuff felt a little messy (the Russos will sort this out). Cosmic stuff was a treat for the eyeballs. Carol and Fury are an enjoyable duo, and I loved that the plot kept left-turning. It settled down to spend some quality time with its characters, further reinforcing the greatest strength of the MCU. It knows when to crack a joke and when to hold off for a serious moment. Needle drops are always a tricky business and I don't much care for them, but I'm not put out by them either. It is what it is. Didn't spot any wonky effects, even with all the leaping about. That de-aging tech is just bonkers. Some overly cute tie-in moments but overall they did a good job of inserting a 'prequel' into a 20-movie saga, serving as an origin story and a direct lead-in to Endgame. Power levels over 9000... Thanos is fucked.

    Avengers Endgame

    Perhaps merge this with the thread where we've been talking about the movie for the past year.

    Side characters that terrified you

    The Crow Man from Worzel Gummidge. Whenever he showed up I was always creeped out, even though he was Worzel's creator and friend. Having said that, I found most of the characters on the show quite unsettling.
  14. He also appears to have naturally white hands, as opposed to gloves.
