    Isn't that pretty much what this one is anyways? MCU Spidey is just an Iron Man fanboy anyways.

    Lionsgate quietly dropped the trailer today for "Bombshell," the story about how Gretchen Carlson and Megyn Kelly opened up about being sexual harrased by Roger Ailes, and his ousting from Fox News. And Twitter exploded about it.

    It's just a minute twenty seven, but Ho. Ly. Sh*t. Only three words are said in the whole trailer. The tension is creepy.

    A-, B+, F.

    I was such a great idea (albeit stolen from dozens of precursors in hard SF). I only wish more competent writers, directors, and actors had been given it to work with. In 50 years when they're all dead somebody should do it right.
    My issue with the third one is that after the second one, fans clamored for less dialogue and more action (a mistake, in my eyes). So then the third was ALL action, which took away from the original philosophical idea of the whole original premise. I don't think it was ever meant to be an action-first movie. It was more a thinking movie. A "what if," dare I say existential, movie?

    2 and 3 were filmed together. The fans had zero to do with it it was always supposed to be that way.

    What does that have to do with anything? She can't think they treated her father badly because she was lucky enough to be his daughter?

    (I have no clue if she is right but her comments weren't crazy or anything)

    I wasn't referring to the link, which I didn't look at. It was a freestanding question. I was curious.

    Yeah I know which is why I found it weird she said anything. I am starting to think no one treated him well once their profits were maximized.

    Mookie watched iron man and iron man 2. Decent enough

    When young mookie bought his share of comic books and was never really a fan. Mookie made sure he got his peter Parker. Iron man never caught his eye

    IM1 is better than "decent." Of the 5000+ comic book movies there are only a half dozen that are actually novel and interesting. IM1 is one of those.

    Black Panther
    Captain America
    Deadpool
    Guardians of the Galaxy
    IM1
    Spiderverse
    Wonder Woman


    That's about it.
