    So far you, and one other person i know have seen it and said it was good. That's good news, i think in here only you and i are higher on dc than the marvel cinematic universe.

    now bring us a conspiracy with the question. Give us booster gold. There is so much potential range in dc that i hope they can stay true to.

    a lobo "dog the bounty hunter" like film. Just don't do brainiac, i hate brainiac.
    After the early screening, it's getting GREAT reviews. 93% on RT amongst all reviewers, and 100% amongst their "Top Critics" (which never happens). Watched a few reviews and looked around Twitter and I've yet to see a bad review for it. Still early, but like I said, I think this is going to be a hit.

    Also, as I said, there are some real surprises ... 2 specifically which I did not expect at all. Kudos to DC and WB marketing teams; they're learning.

    I would LOVE a Lobo movie ... just no idea how they'd do it, or how they'd make him look cool .. Dog style movie might be kinda cool actually.

    Would also love to see a Booster Gold/Blue Beetle movie.

    Hopefully this recent streak from DC will invigorate them to push deeper into their pool.

    • Us was a little disappointing. The critics really gushed over it, and it opened at 100% after sxsw festival. (since dropped to 94%, 69% among audiences)..Get Out as I mentioned is one of my favorite movies, and this trailer was fantastic. So needless to say I was extremely hyped to see it and set the bar high. It did not meet that. As a cable movie on saturday afternoon it would be great to stuff your face and watch. As a movie I where I was expecting a great director to follow up his debut, it was a slip up.

      Without giving away too much, there was way too many plot holes for my personal liking. The visuals, the acting, the pace, all well done...shockingly, the writing is what suffered, which was the least of my worries for Peele.

      I will still go see his next thriller/horror in theatres, this was a slight sophomore slip up, where the talent and creativity is still very evident

      • Watched "The Dirt" on Netflix, the Motley Crue movie ... surprisingly good! I'm not the biggest Crue fan, but still enjoyed the movie having heard for the past 3 decades about their antics. Lol

        • Cineplex.com crashed today because Endgame tickets went on sale ... love or hate Marvel, they have changed the movie industry forever. We have never seen anything like what Endgame represents.

          • How quickly the skeptics become interested ...


            This looks good. Like ... really good. But let's be real ... Todd Philips and Scorsese? Obviously.

                    I am all in. The Joker is one of my favorite characters, since I was a kid. Jack Nicholson did it amazingly.

                    I love how the character has basically become like prestigious role you can be chosen for as a notch on the belt lol. It's like James Bond for American actors except even more acclaimed

                      Depends what you mean. Adjusted for inflation, Avengers Infinity War doesn't crack the top 10. It's likely Endgame will also fall short of the top 10 though it may be able to squeak in. In terms of event movie going, there are lots of similar event movies, the Star Wars movies being the obvious comparison. The Force Awakens was a much bigger event than Endgame, for example. In terms of having the theatre dominated by a lot of mediocre movies about B-list comic book heroes no one ever really cared about? I agree, Marvel has changed the game. Lots more on the way....

                        I more mean in terms of it being the culmination of over 10 years and 21 movies ... never been done before.

                          I saw Us opening weekend and I've waited a while to really articulate my feelings about it. For me, Get Out was a very tight screenplay that never really connected with me. Don't get me wrong, it's a great movie, very enjoyable, but it wasn't one of those movies that really got me and had me infatuated like I am with some movies. That being said I was very excited for Us. Us was a movie that I really enjoyed. Maybe it's just the premise that had me so invested but I was able to look over a lot of the plotholes simply because I was all in on the story and my critical eye was totally disarmed by my investment in the story. I think Peele as a director shows he has improved significantly in this one and he also surprisingly made a better horror movie here. The biggest problem I had was the massive expository dump of dialogue that really detracted from the ingenuity of the concept that happened a couple of minutes into the third act. I think if Peele had trusted his audience and left his story more ambiguous the movie would have a longer life as a conversation topic amongst film fans. Now, it's kind of just an awesome premise with a frustrating explanation and a whole lot of subsequent plot holes.

                          Performances were excellent across the board, I felt that the comedy was better integrated into the story this time compared to Get Out. The score was really really really good as well. I've been listening to the score and the soundtrack a bit over the past couple weeks. Visuals were great but I would like for Peele to develop his visual style a little bit more but that's just me. The pacing was good but the second act was a little weak (still enjoyed it though).

                          All in all, it's a movie I have to see again but as a cinematic experience and as a horror movie I thoroughly enjoyed it.

                              His physicality is so disturbing. The shot of his back looks so wrong. He's got that shirtless James Stewart from Rear Window body just for this role. His physicality looks painful in this and it definitely looked painful in The Master. He's a very talented actor and I'll see basically anything he's in at this point.

                              • Just saw shazam. Small town China, 5 people in the whole theater. Liked it. Thought the end was a bit lame, but the movie was good. Kids were good. Nice bit of bright in the DC world. Decent movie.
