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.

If this proposed Alien 5 does go through then give me Ruth Wilson as Newt. She'd most likely be distant, a little cold and very calculated as she grows up in a world where she saw every single person she ever knew massacred in front of her. Oh, and Ruth Wilson is a fiercely talented bad-ass

#ranting about the garbage writing on TWD

Image

Let me preface this by saying I have a very obvious love/hate relationship with this show and the reason I'm so passionate about it is because THE POTENTIAL IS THERE. You have an incredibly well written and beautiful character study in the three volumes of the comic as well as an infinite budget and a massive cast on a network that brought us some of the best television ever. Yet time and time again the series is jumbled in the hands of complete incompetence.

So.. can I rant about last night's episode?

I firmly believe this series has bouts where it has the worst writing I've ever seen on a television show this popular. Let's get the most obvious out of the way first - Glenn being alive. Not only is it atrocious to bring him back in that way but it was ultimately pointless in what it tried to accomplish. Why would you string the audience along for a month only to reveal he's still alive in the worst way possible? Not only does it murder our suspension of disbelief but if Glenn does eventually die then nobody will give a shit. It's such a truly terrible situation that you have to scratch your head and wonder what the point even was. To make the audience feel the same way that Maggie did? If you really want to try and do that for some horrific reason than keep your mouths shut and go into radio silence! Take a note from GoT when it came to the 5 month lip sealing they did with Jon Snow. How they can handle that so well for 5 months while TWD fails so miserably at it for 3 weeks is beyond me.

Also Spencer doing a batman grappling hook cliffhanger manuever across the wall was so out of place I literally burst out laughing. THAT WAS HIS FIRST APPEARANCE IN THE EPISODE! What were they thinking?? Not to mention the last time we saw him he was stealing crackers from everyone after making a speech about "coming together" so his motives remain untrue. Jesus Christ this show is mind bogglingly horrible sometimes. You know how you do that scene? You open the episode with Spencer actually wanting to help and redeem himself but Rick dismisses him. Then later in the episode you get a glimpse of Spencer overhearing Rick talking about getting someone outside the wall and into a car to drive away the walkers. THEN YOU SHOW THAT SCENE OF SPENCER which is what you call an actual progressive arc. Who the fuck is writing this? How am I giving out better ideas? Where am I?

On top of that you have clearly going mentally insane Deanna running up to Rick in the middle of them trying to repel a zombie invasion on their walls with "floor plans" as she's maniacally laughing. LOL WHAT THE FUCK ARE YOU DOING?? How can we plant barley and wheat when there are 5,000 walkers outside. How about you draw up a plan to get them away? Also please don't bring that up until after we do this. What a ridiculous character decision that made me laugh again.

Everyone is moving backwards too. HERE IS ANOTHER TEN MINUTE SCENE OF CHARACTERS REPEATING THE SAME "we should kill/no we should cherish life" SHIT FOR THE 905TH TIME. Oh look Rick is back to being a distrusting asshole leader for no reason. Oh look Glenn didn't learn his lesson AND GOES BACK TO FIND A LITTLE GIRL AFTER HE ALMOST DIED FOR TRUSTING SOMEONE WHO DIDNT HAVE IT IN THEM. "I'm doing this for Maggie" lol what the fuck are you saying? Does Maggie even know this little girl? Hasn't she only been on the show for 7 seconds? I'm assuming they're doing a comics setup here and giving Glenn and Maggie parenting for an abandoned kid but if that's the case it could've come in a much better way.

/sigh

What hurts even more is I just finished the 3rd compendium which is absolutely phenomenal and just bought the newest issue that came out last Tuesday which had an ending that had me shitting my pants with excitement. Then I turn on the show and see a twat faced mushroom bowl haircut kid asking Carol about being a monster.

They can still make up for this pandering with a hell of a midseason finale next week and maybe this collapse of Alexandria will snap everyone out of it and have them thinking big picture? It's worth hoping for I guess but the longer this happens the more it turns out to be empty promises and two great episodes followed up by 4 hours of lingering, incoherent nonsense.

That's all folks!

Sorry about your frustrations JL. I completely understand as I found myself saying a few of these things during last night's episode. (And a bit more if you ask me about Ron. God, I can't stand that kid with a passion) Though I do admit, I was far too happy seeing Glenn again to mind his decisions with Enid, though I do agree its way too soon for that. But a word of advice - Don't compare the show to the comic too much because that's just a recipe for disappointment. As much as I do love The Walking Dead show, the comic will always leave it in the dust in every possible way. It's just so brilliant. :) That being said, I know the mid-season finale will be good. It'll all be worth it. I know it will.

this weak ass 'passing the time' until the mid-season finale is getting fucking ridiculous . The Glenn situation has me so pissed off , I can't see straight . what was the fucking point of any of this ? And , like you , if I hear one more debate about the importance of every life , I'll fucking lose it . I understand the show will in no way ever measure up to the comic , but this is really sub par on a major level.
