Thank god for jj. “When you look at Star Wars and Empire, they are very different lightsaber battles, but for me they felt more powerful because they were not quite as slick. I was hoping to go for something much more primitive, aggressive and rougher, a throwback to the kind of heart-stopping lightsaber fights I remembered being so enthralled by as a kid.” [Abrams] looked at “the confidence” of John Ford Westerns. He took in the “unbelievable scene choreography and composition” of Kurosawa’s High and Low. And he studied “the powerful stillness” of Terrence Malick. “It’s not something I would normally have thought of coming to Star Wars,” he says. The spare visual style of Ford, Kurosawa and Malick points to a key mandate for Abrams’ approach to Episode VII: the distinctive less-is-more quality of the originals.

Benedict Cumberbatch, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Rachel McAdams, Michael Stuhlbarg, Mads Mikkelsen and Tilda Swinton make Doctor Strange the Marvel movie with the single most talented cast.

I'm thankful for a lot of things like good health, a wonderful fiancee, a strong group of friends and family and a time in my life where I have nothing serious to complain about. I'm also thankful this site and community exists where I can geek out 24/7 about any movie, tv show or game imaginable and not be looked down upon or laughed at but embraced and cheered on. I've been apart of this community for 5 years now and y'all have been a staple of my daily life for as far back as I can count. It means a lot to have a place to go to where we can heavily and healthily debate film and geekdom while still freaking out together. Happy Thanksgiving MFC, you all deserve a beautiful day

A couple of people have already asked me this question so I figured I'll answer it here - yes, Creed is better than Rocky Balboa and might honestly be the second best film in the series.

After seeing Creed today I'd put it after Rocky and IV. But it was damn good and I'm excited to see how they handle this new phase of the franchise.

If that Civil War trailer reinforced anything it's that Captain America is the beating heart of the MCU - exactly the way it should be. Evans is their MVP

I do like how it seems like they're kind of crafting Tony to finally be the bad guy because honestly he is and has been for a while, being a dick and making terrible mistakes and choices over and over again... Go Cap Go! lol

Also for all the talk about Iron Man and the Avengers hijacking Cap's movie and Marvek abandoning the Winter Soldier storyline that trailer was all Cap-centric and very Bucky heavy.

I was thinking the same thing. It could add credence to the idea of Stan or Mackie taking over as Captain America. I still have my doubts on that one though. I'm all for mixing things up and making sure things do not get stale but I still prefer the characters as they are (i.e. Steve as Cap, Tony as Iron Man, Sam as Falcon, Bucky as Winter Soldier) and not the shake-ups the comics have seen lately. Plus, since that is a very recent thing I'm not sure how the public would react to that. Although of course I have been wrong before with these movies. I swore up and down there were too many storylines to cover before Civil War could even be thought of, so maybe my way of thinking is completely wrong. .

I also am not entirely sure this is 100% Civil War. Like Captain America: the Winter Soldier sort of used the backdrop of the classic storyline to make a new story, Civil War is obviously more at the forefront but I think it's still going to use a familiar story to propel a new story and reveal more threats. I think this is the chapter that will reveal Thanos to the Earth-based heroes. Also, maybe this will be the final conclusion to Hydra. I'm sure they'll play a part. I'm kind of holding hope to see Red Hulk and a variation of the Thunderbolts.

The real amazing thing about what Marvel has done is to get us to really be invested in the over-arching story line beyond just the impending movie. We are already speculating how it is going to fit into the grand scheme of things. It is a brilliant strategy.

I absolutely despise The Falcon being Captain America in the comic books. Despise it.

JohnLocke2342 updated his STATUS: almost 2 years ago

Civil War already looks 20 times better than Age of Ultron with actual stakes, real drama and NO FUCKING QUIPS! The Russo Bros. proved to me that they're the ones who should be controlling the MCU going forward and this small taste is one that I badly want more of.

Hollllly shit Creed was legitimately great and I absolutely loved it. Michael B. Jordan has that unbreakable star power, Tessa Thompson brought a genuine presence to an organic relationship and Stallone had his best turn as Rocky since the original. We were rage cheering in the theater for Creed, then Rocky, then Creed again, then both of them at the same time and then cheering like mad for a sequel. Bring on Creed II ASAP

@erico - It honestly stands on its own because they do a good job of setting up this world where Apollo and Rocky were the greatest to ever fight in the sport. My fiancée has only seen bits and pieces of the first 6 but LOVED this and now wants to have an entire marathon.
