The Jungle Book was fun. Bill Murray and Christopher Walken were great. Perfect choices for those characters.

Just watched Civil War. The movie is great and it's not only fight scenes - it's the plot! Actually trailers don't tell what's it all about and it was a strong point.

In a way similiar to Iron Man 3 - trailers are full of exploding helicopters and usual stuff, but the movie is much more interesting than that.

I enjoyed Captain America: Civil war! I especially liked the villan

However, two things bother me:

1. Where was Vision in the combat against Crossbones? I somehow think that he could change the outcome of that battle (him being powerfull)

2. The general who presents them Sokovia accord goes through Avengers' biggest battles, accusing them for civilian casualties. However, everyone seems to forget to mention that during the battle of New York, council (or whatever it is called) decided to nuke Manhattan and it was Avengers who stoped that. I think that was a major argument against the Sokovia accord.

In the Avengers' HQ. Being serious though, I think that someone who sent the Avengers to Wakanda Nigeria decided that sending four of the heroes is enough, especially when one of them was Scarlet Witch, one of the most powerful superheores (and -heroines) in the MCU, so Vision wouldn't be neccessary.

They went to Nigeria not Wakanda But atm they are not controlled by anyone, if I understood correctly. Captain America leads them, so why would he decide to not use Vision?

Excellent point! They need a better lawyer I think.

Somebody remind me again why Loki was helping the lame aliens invade earth in Avengers 1?

That aside, the character struggles and motivations work like a charm. An especially messy one Kinda wish the black panther was more imposing, he was a total bad@ss in the civil war comics. The accent somehow didn't sit well with me, maybe I expected a deeper voice, maybe a more powerful aura? Maybe it's just me, will have to see more of him. I'm interested in seeing how Wakanda will be presented in the marvel cinematic universe. Spidey was appropriately talkative and excitable, I loved him. I was pretty indifferent to his inclusion at first but the kid pulled it off. And antman's antics are just fun. He makes things interesting just by being around. I am fond of the cast in general, except Rhodes that is rather boring.


I think War Machine is okay. He's not a "big personality" like some of the other characters, but you need a blend of personalities or else it can cause a headache.  You have your charismatic rogues like Ant Man or Star Lord and then your mad scientists like Iron Man or Hulk,  and your leaders like Captain America and Fury.  War Machine is a down to earth,  reliable,  man of conscience,  who played a big role in Tony Stark shifting from his behavior in Iron Man 1, to his now more responsible self.

He's a sidekick character so either way his screen time is going to be less.

Thanos asked nicely.

I have seen a number of negative reviews that I just don't get. Criticism like team Cap having unclear motivations(disagree), not having anything to show so they pit up the existing heroes against each other(civil war, hello?), the major fight being a playground fight instead of a fight with their lives on the line(did they expect lethal force?), there being no major repercussions at the end of the movie(does team Cap being fugitives count?), the movie having too many characters(6x6 doesn't seem THAT crowded), lacking a proper villain(kinda agree), boring over-the-top action(wat ) and so on. I get the plot hole complaints but trashing the movie for the above seems a stretch. Another thing I do agree with, is that they could have focused more on the consequences and ramifications of the hero registration. Not everyone might be interested in that but some extra food for thought never hurts. I like movies that leave the thinking to the viewer.

This is a plot hole outisders couldn't get, still Avengers 1 was the highest-grossing movie of MCU and got great reviews too. People are retards

I'm sure this will be explained in Infinity War.

It was clearly shown in the same movie, it wasn't something comic fans would know from elsewhere. People just didn't know who Thanos was at the time so they didn't piece it together or they didn't pay attention.

Warcraft: The Beginning - ILM Featurette.

The closer it gets to the release date, the better it looks? I'm starting to be interested in it after all...

It isn't surprising at all. All movies that rely heavily on CG tend to look better the closer it is to their premiere. Besides, if ILM (they have done work for all Star Wars films, all Jurassic Parks, all Indiana Joneses, etc.) is responsible for the VFX in that film, it means that we can only expect them to do at least a good job.

Fun Fact: Duncan Jones, the director of "Warcraft," is David Bowie's son.

Ironforge? Eredar? Infernals? This is getting better and better! Please let it be at least a decent movie! I really hope this will turn out into a hit so that there will be more entries coming. Somethings gotta fill that void after LotR and Hobbit trylogies...

I mean, despite all the "too much CGI - 1/10" reviews (that are bound to happen, even if the movie turns out decent or even good), maybe it will be a box office hit at least so they will make more?

This doesn't seem like a bad idea, don't you think so? Even if it does sound like a strange idea a game company would start making movies.

They have already produced some Pikmin shorts that have been met with fans' acclaim, so they have done the first step to create their own films.

I don't know why you would dis a movie like Warcraft for having CGI. You pretty much have three options:

1) Spend a billion dollars on robotics and go bankrupt.
2) Use really crappy, low budget real life props
3) CGI

You can't make a thorough Warcraft movie without being really heavy on the CGI. It's Warcraft. The orcs are 7+ feet tall and 400 pounds, IF they are to be proper Warcraft orcs, and a resounding 'YES' to having proper Warcraft orcs.
