Oh....i like this movie way less now...
There are way too many movie review personalities on the internet these days.
Ok, I actually don't. I still have my own opinion. I just said that 'cuz I thought it would get more responses and discussions on what CM pointed out.
OP is still a fag, mind you.
His main point is that they should have focused more on Star-Lord's humanness and that it should have been a fish out of water story. His main reason to dislike the film is not that the film executed the plot badly, but that the plot should have been something else. He's literally retarded.
>His main point is that they should have focused more on Star-Lord's humanness and that it should have been a fish out of water story.
Dude's lived in Space (Specifically with Space Pirates) for like 20 years, why would he be a fish out of water?
Those are literally the worst critiques possible
Like, that would have gotten rid of the only things that made the movie decent and made it 10 times as banal and dull and cliched horseshit
>The movie is bad because a big bad guy wants a powerful item to fuck people up
>wahhhh every Marvel movie is bad because of this
>This movie takes itself SO seriously
Holy fuck, how retarded is this guy?
>Yondu's arrow is retarded
fucking why? not only is it only featured out of his holster in two scenes, but it was cool as fuck and the reveal actually made Yondu feel like a real threat
>ever taking CM seriously
>the guy who hates the Lion King because he literally doesn't understand what character development is
IM3 wasn't based on a MacGuffin plot and everyone launched spaghetti all over that film.
That's how shit works though, you can simply every fucking movie to some bullshit akin to that and it's how the comics work ANYWAY. What would you have the SUPERHEROES do? Fuck around walking around the city for an hour? Beat up some jaywalkers? The fuck?
And then he bitches about how all the characters have tragic back stories and proper motivations for their actions.
> "I thought this would be a light-hearted romp that you wouldn't have to think too hard about...BUT IT'S NOT!"
that was an actual complaint from this video
>main character wasn't alien
Well he is half alien.
I feel like CM is basically trying too hard with this review. Especially his rant on marvel as a whole. Because really if there's one criticism about marvel movies is that they are more interested in making one long story taking place over many films than the individual films themselves. I mean when you get down to it the plot of marvel films are pretty underwhelming (both captain america movies being the exception fuck CMs opinion about the first one being bad and iron man 3 was fucking bad.). The one point he has about marvel is that they are more interested in the overall plot of the mcu than the individual films. And that's a problem but holy fuck does he go full autistic rage about it.
p.s. gotg was good fuck him.
I didn't like the movie too much either. The comedy and character interactions were great but the action was a sloppy mess and the plot was some macguffin exposition filled crap. That stuff is like half the movie. Also anything involving the one dimensional villain was boring.
"this movie doesnt nothing but set up the plot"
"and when it doesnt. it explains the charecters background"
WHAT ELSE SHOULD A MOVIE BE ABOUT
>mfw i recognize this kids voice
>mfw i might have gone to high school with him
Well, the whole orb thing could have been removed completely, if the film had only focused on stopping Ronan from destroying the planet. Maybe that way Ronan could have been developed a little more as a character and the Kree/Xandar war could have been explored a little more.
Personally, I thought the MacGuffin thing in GotG was completely acceptable and a decent way to move the plot along because the characters were great and the world was so rich.
This is gonna sound hard to believe but I was away doing some missionary work when IM3 came out. When I saw it, I thought it was amazing. It is my favorite marvel film (though it's not the best). I loved the tone, jookes, action, Tony character stuff, the twist. I loved every second. I know /co/ and /tv/ hate it, but I never heard why.
I completely respect anyone else's opinion on the film. Why do you hate my waifu?
I'm halfway through, he really doesn't understand the setup to Thanos and complaining because he doesn't get it. What a pointless review so far. He has tunnel vision for what he's seeing the movie is, in his opinion. Not for what it really is, and setting up with characters that are established in Marvel publishing.
Oh God, him calling Thanos "that other guy" and acting like he's coming out of knowhere for no reason and acting like he's not the general big bad that people already know about. Oh I hope this guy is just fucking around...
Who gives a shit, though?
That doesn't improve GotG in any way and I strongly doubt it'll actually improve the eventual Thanatos-centric movie in any way. It's a pure marketing gimmick. Stop using it as a defense for the fact that GotG had a pretty boring-ass plot.
>It's fucking retarded and makes no sense
I don't know if he's reviewing the movie or his own narration.
Goddamnit, after 2 minutes I wanted to jam a railwayspike through my face.
If you don't like how comics work, don't watch comic movies. If you thought going into it it wasn't going to set up for Thanos and gems you're retarded. If you thought the movie wasn't fun anyway you're retarded.
"WHY ARE THEY FRIENDS I DON'T UNDERSTAAAAANNND!"
It's explained in the movie, pretty well. It's right there in the movie for people to get why they start trusting each other, and become a well knit group. I can't believe this guy is serious..I just can't..
No, I liked the movie, and I thought it was fun. I also thought it had a garbage plot, and I think it would have been a lot better if it didn't have a garbage plot, and I don't think 'setting up for Thanatos' is an actual justification for it having a garbage plot in a creative sense.
It was a good movie with some weaknesses, and I would have liked it more if those weaknesses didn't exist, and the fact that those weaknesses are p much endemic to Marvel films as a whole doesn't help much.
>baww i don't get the lion king because AUTISM
i got to give him credit. everyone jumped on the "angry" reviewer bandwagon after AVGN got popular. and CM managed to find a new niche of internet reviewing: the autism block. him and the YMS guy should team up and watch rain man.
They hate it mostly because of the Mandarin being an actor and the "real" Mandarin being the, well, guy from the twist.
I haven't seen the one-shot, but a friend told me that there is actually a REAL Mandarin after all, but he is still in the shadows and we don't know who is he. The only thing we know is that "he want's to take back his name", so I guess the fake Mandarin is going to die
Lion King review
While I think it is fun to be like the comics, if something is different, I will like it if it is ultimately good in its own right.
It's stupid to hate a super-well-thought-out and developed thing just because it isn't 100% faithful.
He always doesn't understand that Rocket crashed his ship into Ronan and that "the military" as he puts it, made the ship crash. He..he didn't understand the movie, it's like he honestly didn't watch it. This is the worst review i've ever seen.
It had the same beats as like 90% of the action movies from the past 4 or 5 years
it was still enjoyable because the characters were fun and the setting was fun and it had a really goofy-ass, fun feeling to it. but the actual plot was ass, and it really made it hard to take it seriously when OH WOW THEY'VE OVERCOME THE DARK NIGHT OF SELF-DOUBT THROUGH THE POWER OF FRIENDSHIP or OH NO THE BAD GUY'S PURSUIT OF THE MACGUFFIN LOOKS LIKE IT'S ABOUT TO SUCCEED AND DESTROY THE WORLD
The plot was ass, sorry. Still a good movie. Ass plot.
Like another anon said, he was mixed on it.
Iron Man 1 was my favorite of the "Phase 1" MCU films, but I can understand his complaints about it, though. Wish I could say the same for all his reviews.
Nah this guy's a fuckwit, he was expecting a fish out of water character, and because that's what they didn't do it makes it bad, apparently?
"WHY DIDN'T THEY JUST TAKE THE WISTLE ARROW GUY ONTO RONAN'S SHIP?!?!?"
They explained he was going to go through the ship's haul that Rocket and others where breaking in. Except he got shot down..they explain this. I'm seriously in awe with this guy, I usually like watching bad reviews just for the sake of seeing the person's shitty opinion. But this guy really irritates me because he truly didn't understand key plot points and development.
Unfortunately that is something really common among movies which are adaptations.
"Oh no it's a lot different! It sucks!"
"It is extremely faithful and doesn't work as a movie! It sucks!"
You just can't please everyone
I liked it as well, the kid didn't bother me at all. The whole point was Tony Stark was Iron Man without the suit, and I guess people didn't like that.
Apart from that, /pol/ dislikes that Pepper is a Strong Womyn, and other people didn't like the writer's style (Lethal Weapon).
>No fish out of water character!
Haven't we see enough of that shit?
>They have sad back stories! WHERE'S THE FUN?!
Jesus is he 15? They're quick back stories and we learn more about these characters.
I can't listen anymore. What is he expecting? It was self aware and its a comic that not many movie goers know who these characters are. Jesus he sounds like a fucking 13 year old crying that there wasn't FUN! FUN! FUN!
Tell him to go watch a fucking Transformers movie if he wants tongue and cheek nonsensical bullshit.
Am I the only one that loved the mandarin twist and hated everything else about that movie?
The twist was by far the best part of the film but besides that the whole movie was boring as fuck. My main problems with the film were
1: The jokes in this one started to feel old. Like most of them felt like the same jokes from the first two just rehashed. The only joke I thought was any good was when Tony drives away from the kid while mocking the connection they are supposed to have.
2: The ptsd shit was super forced. Tony has come within inches of dying before half a dozen times at least by now yet the ending of the avengers was somehow more horrible than the rest of the shit he's been through?
3: The small town mystery second act was slow, uninteresting (to me) and bland.
4: The ass pull at the end with tony easily fixing peppers condition so she doesn't explode is just stupid. The idea that Tony is smart enough to fix this shit but hasn't used this information yet to remove the heat weapons and openly gave this life changing if not life saving science to the world is a dick move. but this is nothing compared to the ending
5: Tony throws away the arc reactor. He manages to create a device that could solve the worlds energy problems not just once but twice in the first film and then keeps it as his personal play thing for the second and third film until he decides he doesn't want to be Iron Man anymore and he just gets rid of it. I mean if you want to save lifes one of the best ways to do it would be to give the world nearly unlimited energy.
I don't think either of those points really make the plot "ass". What was so bad about it? Because it's cliched? I guess I can understand if you think the fundamental plot is mediocre, but it wasn't bad.
>Iron Man 3
>best Marvel movie
Either he's the biggest troll or legitimately is mentally challenged and should his name is actually a cry for help
It's just really weird what he considers the BEST Marvel movies. He has IM3, which is awful, and Cap2 which is phenomenal. It's like if he had...The Punisher movie from the 90s and....I don't know...Ghostbusters. They're not even in the same quality ballpark.
1. Shane Black
2. Guy was powerless with his armor, that's why he wanted to make a better armor. If his armor couldn't protect him, going without it would have been horrible.
4. Epilogue shit, who cares.
5. Shane Black / muh superhero shit
It's just a
funShane Black movie, with an Iron Man flavor.
I firmly believe he did this review for publicity. Nearly every point he makes, is explain in the movie. He bitches when things were already explained, or it takes 1 second to understand what's going on. Every single thing he says was wrong, like Yondu using his arrow by whistling was out of place. Or how he puts it "why was this supposed to be some badass thing?!". Because he nearly almost uses the arrow twice, so when you final see him use it he kills 20 soldiers in seconds. There's a build up, that's the point. He even stupidly mistakenly says he shot them in the head, when you see the arrow hit ever single one of their chests. His name really fits him, and it's fascinating that he reviews movies when it's obvious he doesn't understand what he's reviewing. He reminds me of DSP (Darksydephil), a nearly retarded gamer who doesn't understand the fundamentals of the games he plays.
I was hoping he mentioned the fact that a fucking Infinity Stone was just chilling on a empty planet in a working force field...like...if the planet was evacuated or whatever...wouldn't someone be like "Hey....should we take the Super-McGuffin? No? Just leave it here for no reason? Oh. Ok."
>No shitty love story
>Cap actually kills people and kicks some ass without any help from super power nonsense
>Good back and forth with Scar Joe
>Predictable plot but handled well
>Not for kids.
how was this mediocre again?
It's not cliched so much as unoriginal. It follows the same plot outline and hits largely the same plot beats as a lot of other action movies. This makes it unoriginal, and it makes it really difficult for me to be engaged in the mechanics of the plot when it's so closely replicating the plot of a million other movies. Not just the macguffin-ness of it, but the staging of the introductions, the conflicts, the successes and the failures and the resolution, etc - the whole procession of it was really tiring and dull. Those moments are just the two that spring most obviously to mind where we're asked to take seriously a really hackeneyed, basic plot beat coming at the most expected, obvious time.
It's not even that it's formulaic. I can stand formulaic. But it doesn't try to do anything interesting or unexpected with the formula. It has the good grace to hang interesting characters, dialogue, and settings around the boring, plodding plot at least, which is its saving grace, but the plot might as well not have been there for all I cared about it.
Distracting the guy via dancing was a funny gag (and again, to reiterate, I think the movie is basically good) but I don't think the friendship thing can be read as a gag of any kind, and dancing thing is just a gag.
Winter Soldier > Iron Man 1 > GotG > rest
I hope Marvel keeps doing top-notch work, cause they seem to be getting better. DC/Warner Bros. should take a page from Marvel and just stop trying serious shit. Campy Tim Burton Batman was good, why can't we go back to that?
2: It wasn't just about his armor. I mean that's part of how it manifested but restaurant scene pretty much shows that his interaction with the worm hole is what caused it to start.
As for the rest of your points I don't really know how to respond when your response is "shane black" and "plot" responses. I mean I guess we can just defend any film from criticism by saying the name of the director and saying "it's a fun ______ movie with ____ flavor." because that's some sort of general trump card?
I mean sucker punch is just a
funZack Snyder movie, with a comic book flavor.
>Am I the only one that loved the mandarin twist and hated everything else about that movie?
I didn't *hate* everything else about the movie (my opinion on IM3 is generally lukewarm, but it had it's good moments) but I will agree that the mandarin twist was one of the best (and smartest) parts of the film.
Honestly, I'm just glad IM3 wasn't as bad as IM2. Seriously, that film was horseshit.
>One of my friends (who hadn't read any IM comics) left the theatre with me saying he liked the film (IM3)
>MFW the next week he complained to me that the film was shit, because he looked up a bunch of reviews by comic-autists who didn't like the Mandarin twist, and adapted to their opinion
no joke. I'm sincerely considering doing a series of reviews of movie reviewers as a satire/parody of the massive glut of people who think their opinion on pop culture is the shit and their humor is amazing.
>Why can't we go back to campy?
WE'RE IN A WORLD WHERE WWIII IS GONNA HAPPEN! WE NEED 9/11 BUILDING DESTRUCTION. WHITE HOUSE DESTRUCTION! ALIENS! SUPERHEROS! EVERYONE GETTING FUCKING KILLED! THAT'S WHAT THE PEOPLE WANT TO BE FUCKING TERRIFIED! YOU WANT FUN?! ENJOYMENT? FUCK YOU! YOU SHOULD BE TERRIFIED OF DEADLY EBOLA!!
I believe that's how Hollywood would respond to that. With a lot more "fucks" though
>It was also behind these massive locked doors
The ones Quill was able to pick with a bent paperclip in like...5 seconds? Yeah.
Also...who the fuck cares how "big" the doors are? They have FTL and capitol ship weapons. I doubt it would matter.
I read the wiki and spoil the plot for myself. That way, nothing really surprises me, and I can better enjoy the movie without wondering about shit. So a rehashed story doesn't bother me. I frankly don't expect anything new out of hollywood at this point, so I take what I can get. An GotG was
funif unoriginal. Also, if you have kids, I bet it's a good thing to turn on an distract them for a while.
The idea that people need to deeply care emotionally about the goals or the protagonists of a film, and that this can only be accomplished through either deeply grim and angsty backstories for the protagonists or super-serious apocalyptic stakes for the plot, is so fucking annoying.
Sucker Punch is pretty girls and CGI. I haven;t seen it, but my brother said it wasn't that good, and it has his waifu from Series of Unfortunate Events.
As for the director thing, it's his thing. 2 buddies who may or may not be cops solve shit (and also guns). I'm thinking he maybe submitted some script, and a higher-up decided to make it into an Iron Man film. It's happened before, and it'll happen again.
I'll say I do street interviews for one of my internships at a local television show. And we had a question of the day segment. And the question was "What is your favorite movie". The majority of the crack/heroin addicts all agreed Transformers was their favorite.
Now either the movie must be fucking amazing while high off your ass. Or. It's so simple enough to follow a crack addict can watch and enjoy it. I'm gonna go with the first suggestion but believe me they knew character names, which robot one, what their favorite scene was. I think Bay might secretly be a genius. Just appeal to the stupid people and drugged out people.
I understand exactly what you're saying, but I think the movie took a plot concept that is generally shoehorned into other movies and made it work well. The whole power of friendship overcoming evil thing never felt shoehorned or cynical to me, it felt like the characters actually had some compassion and had learned to look past their own short-sighted goals that they had held to help save the city. That sounds really corny as I type it out but it felt genuine in the context of the film.
I agree with you about the conflicts/successes thing, though. That felt predictable for the most part, though it wasn't necessarily disappointing. I don't agree about the character introductions - I thought those were handled well.
I don't think anybody would claim that the only way a film can make you care about protag and it's goals in a film is by having deeply grim and angsty backstories or super-serious apocalyptic stakes. It's just super easy to emotionally manipulate people with those two. I mean hell the scene where rocket starts breaking down a bit even got to me a little bit in spite of the fact that I knew that it was just cheap and easy manipulation on the films part.
I don't think we're that far apart b/c as I said I still think it was a fun movie with good characters
I guess I just still hold movies to the standard of not having a plot that's totally ass for some reason. I'm not being sarcastic either, that's probably an unrealistic expectation.
None of what you said does anything regarding what I said about Sucker Punch.
It's just a fun film with blah blah blah.
also I don't care if it's his thing. My points remain valid and you haven't engaged them with anything except with the exception of the "it's just a fun ________ movie with _______ flavor" defense
Like according to the shit you've said they could have hired a gay porn director to write the script for Iron Man 3 and direct it and have it be 2 hours of Tony Stark fucking male prostitutes and nobody could have valid criticisms about it because that's just the directors thing.
mexican-american, and don't mind it either, apart from it being cliche. Why not the UN building? Or congress? Animatrix and maybe Mars Attacks! are the only movies were they show shit apart from the White House being blown up.
You have to understand, though, that it's all rehashes and mosaics (different movie plots put together) from now on (at least for big movies). Nothing else will really make money. I'd like a big-titty'd wide-hipped beauty as a partner, but I'll probably have to settle for a pancake-titty'd flat-assed normie. Enjoy the little things, or you're just gonna turn into a cynical artfag asshole.
>Like according to the shit you've said they could have hired a gay porn director to write the script for Iron Man 3 and direct it and have it be 2 hours of Tony Stark fucking male prostitutes and nobody could have valid criticisms about it because that's just the directors thing.
pls don't post about your fanfic on /tv/
I do enjoy the little things. I was overall positive on GotG. I'd probably give it like a 6 or 7 out of 10. But I think there's a place for pointing out the parts that are bad as well. Even if it's entirely quixotic.
It makes sense but it's a deeply grim and angsty back story that was an incredibly easy way to get the audience to get behind him 100% in the film.
I'm sure it stays true to his back story in the comics and all that but it doesn't change it from using an extremely easy method to manipulate the consumer to care more about his character. The main problem with this isn't even manipulation. Story telling for the most part is just manipulation. This is just something that's easy to see for what it is and is incredibly easy to pull off. That's the problem. It's like the premise of the movie Doom was that there's a gene for evil inside of people. The problem with that isn't that it doesn't make sense in that universe because it does with what they've set up. The problem with it is that it's just a lazy way to force things to go the way the writer wants instead of thinking up something a bit more creative.
people who prefer campy fun superheroes movies are either young teens or adults who read a lot of comics books. Majority of general audience who go to the cinema to watch a superhero movie once tend to prefer muh grim dark angst realism, it has always been like this
>pic semi related, what I want to be made into a blockbuster
ehhhhhh that kinda sounds like bullshit to me. You're essentially saying that anytime a character has a sad backstory that's manipulative? I understand what you mean broadly, but there's a big difference between a poorly-written character having a tragic backstory and a well-written character with a tragic backstory. And in this case, the backstory makes sense and doesn't feel forced. Sometimes it's okay to have an emotional reaction to a film.
For people talking about a stupid plot, most films that aren't "muh srs drama" have a stupid plot. Hell, a lot of great films have stupid plots. It is like literature with prose being more important at times than plot, in film the way it is put together can be way more important than plot.
All the normies I know don't like The Dark Knight cause it was serious, but rather cause it was somewhat realistic and the Joker was coo[l]. They also like the Marvel movies, cause they have coo[l] characters and are fun. They disliked IM3 though, cause they a) didn't get it or b) too little suit action.
Jesus Christ this was the worst review of anything I've ever sat through. Every single one of his points is either flat out wrong or just complaining the movie isn't something else.
His comments about the MCU are also fucking stupid. If he thinks that is going badly I would love to hear what he has to say about DC.
I'm not being funny. I mean no disrespect but I think Confused Matthew legitimately has autism or asperger's. He doesn't seem to understand or comprehend basic information and ideas like the rest of us interpret with ease.
He complains about many things that just aren't true or are explained in the movie. "Why didn't Yondu go onto the ship and kill Ronan?" He was on the way and was shot down. "The military brought the ship down." No they didn't, the chief cause of the crash was Rocket ramming the docking bay.
Did he even WATCH the movie before reviewing it?
I know what mean but yeah basically. Story telling as a whole is very much about manipulating the consumer of the story into reacting how you want them to. That said I want to restate that I don't think manipulation itself is a problem or even a bad thing in the context of story telling. The problem here is that there are just some ways that are easier than others to get the consumer to where you want them to be. This still isn't that much of a problem in my opinion. It's just easier to realize that you're purposely being manipulated in an easy way by the writer when they do something like this then when they use other more subtle methods to make you empathize with a character.
I mean the guy I was initially responding to was the one bitching about it like it was some horrible thing and I was just pointing out that it's just very effective so you're naturally going to see it a lot. I mean like I said Rockets back story got me emotionally invested in spite of me consciously knowing about it. And i'd go as far as to say that the problem isn't that writers use it. It's that not enough writers don't use it. Which is fundamentally different.
I don't know why but the complaint that bugs me the most is him claiming Quill should be more of a fish out of water.
HE FUCKING GREW UP IN SPACE SURROUNDED BY ALIENS YOU FUCKING MORON, HE HAS SPENT MORE TIME OFF EARTH THAN ON IT. WHY DO YOU THINK THAT IS A GOOD IDEA?
That's the criticism that really shows that he's reaching for shit to bitch about. The fish out of water is a cliche method to convey information to the audience about the world they are engaging with. It's like the laziest method to avoid exposition to the point that i'd rather just have exposition spouted throughout the film.
It's kind of funny because one of his biggest criticisms about marvel is that they aren't interested in doing anything new while his biggest problem with the film is that they don't use one of the most overused character types in story telling.
>Marvel is so shitty for establishing the MCU as a consistent and connected universe that does all of its characters justice and is working toward telling long running interconnected stories how could anyone like them
>Man DC is doing so great though with their movies all being complete incoherent messes trying so hard to be Nolan Batman no matter how little it fits the character
>OMG OMG OMG SHUT UP SHUT THE FUCK UP!
this guy really is autistic
>''He can't be that bad''
>Proceed to watch video
How could I be so wrong?
I guess you're swayed quite easily OP
I watched the video and all I heard was some guy bitching. I had a counter point for most of his whining.
Don't let him change your mind just because he has a different opinion than most.
People will respond seriously.
He didn't understand a Marvel movie. Again. Let that sink in. Again.
I'd rather read an Armond or Debbie review. At least those are fun.
Every time you watch or read another retard's movie review Professor Xavier punches the Star-Lord with a keyboard.
I can't count the amount of times he says "Where is the fun", since when the fuck did any of the trailers announce that this movie is going to be fun , why is he so hell bent on having fun, who the fuck promised him fun.
He would've gave this film a 10/10 if it stated "this film is serious, not about fun." Maybe at that point he would stop looking for fun and take it more seriously.
What a fuckwit. And fuck you OP for introducing me to this fuck
>ConfusedMatthew STILL attempting to shill after being blown the fuck out by RLM with the prequel reviews
>retards STILL giving him views
The trailer doesn't really show him as anything other than an obnoxious American in space.
Dude's right, he could totally have been any other race. Also the literal thing.
And Thanos, so stupid.
He wanted a fish out of water character. After all 20 years aboard a ship of pirates interacting with who knows what and doing shit I can't begin to imagine all over the galaxy would certainly produce someone who wouldn't know anything.
The guy is a bit naive.
>it happened over the course of TWO DAAAAYYYYYSSSSS
Pretty sure they don't have FTL travel in their ship, so I think we're meant to understand that all of their trips took some time
The general impression I'm getting is that this guy doesn't know a goddamned thing about the story and apparently had an entirely different idea of where the movie would go, and because the movie didn't fit his ideas he's really upset
>upset about her taking "sticks up their butts" literally when that's Drax's character trait
>What is this garbage?
Didn't he just complain that he doesn't think the movie shows Quill's human culture being foreign to aliens enough?
Because that's what that scene was - it wasn't her taking a slang phrase literally, it was him using a slang phrase that is foreign to her and her not understanding
>There are people in this thread giving this worthless fuck hits
What next, Razorfist?
Why do people not know what a MacGuffin is?
Classic example: The briefcase from Pulp Fiction. It doesn't do anything. It doesn't matter what's in it. It's purely and simply a thing that people want and them wanting it causes the plot to happen.
It's not a MacGuffin if it actually does something.
I feel like this is just people enamored of a term they heard once.
What you are describing isn't the plot. Plots are usually really simple, because they are supposed to be so that the characters can develope. Take any movie you think is great and I can sum up the plot to those movies in a single sentence. If you think the plot is bad because it's overused or cliche, than it's not a valid criticism. A film should be judged on its own merit, not what other movies have done. It's not this film's fault you have seen too many movies with a similar plot
Marvel is shit. I just don't get why he acts like it's any different from any other production studio.
Artistic vision doesn't exist anymore, movies are just cynical products to entertain plebs. Movies are dead. Avengers was really fucking shit movie.
His pre-rant is pretty accurate. But then, after he has complained that Marvel-films insult his intellect he starts ranting about how the movie takes itself seriously (not TOO seriously, just seriously) and has drama and characters with weight. /v/ being my main, it reminds me quite a lot of these things we have called Nintendofags. I believe /tv/ is familiar with these degenerates through RLM.
I don't really care if he bitches about Marvel - I'm just trying to grasp why he's spending so much time on it in a GotG review. Combine that with his grinding voice and he totally lost me.
People overanalyizing movies again and telling people that it's shite because of their own inability to grasp things on a more immersive level? What a surprise.
>the guy controlling his arrow by whistling was not funny
all his criticism is just him thinking he could have made a better movie because some elements were different from what he would expect
It's not about "turning your brain off", it's the fact that somebody took the time to analyze every single aspect of a film only to criticize every thing that he perceived to be a flaw and go on and on about how he could have made a better film all the while lambasting the creators for minute mistakes. It's as autistic as you can get, and I'm autistic.
Of course Bay is a fucking genius. Only retards think he isn't. He doesn't want to make good movies. He wants to make succesful movies.
And I don't think he sheds a single tear that he didn't create this generations Citizen Kane when his movies perform fantastically at the box office.
Yeah, he even says that he makes movies for teenage boys to go and spend money to see and that he's not upset that people criticize him. I mean, fuck, his movies are trash, but people who think that he's suffering because Ebert and Roeper weren't sucking his dick are crazy.
>mfw I haven't seen a legitimate argument against any of his points ITT
