Did you know...

The first Disney film not to get a U certificate was The Black Hole.

...more pointless twaddle to follow.

I just watched Captain Marvel, has to be the best Avengers film. Better even than the first Iron Man movie.

It is very highly rated, but I can't stand the actors or the director so I'll give it a miss.

Update on the Marvel marathon.

We just finished GOTG 2 tonight.

I think that's my daughter's favourite so far - partly due to the comedy but mostly due to baby Groot.

Seeing then again, in order this time, the entire story arc makes much more sense and I'm picking up little references between the movies all time.
It may not be to everyone's taste, but it's clever how every movie is tied together.

  • Captain America: The First Avenger (takes place during WWII)
  • Captain Marvel (takes place in 1995)
  • Iron Man (takes place in 2010)
  • Iron Man 2 (takes place after Iron Man)
  • The Incredible Hulk (time unspecified, pre-Avengers)
  • Thor (time unspecified, pre-Avengers)
  • The Avengers (takes place in 2012)
  • Iron Man 3 (takes place six months after The Avengers)
  • Thor: Dark World (post-Avengers, pre-Ultron)
  • Captain America: Winter Soldier (post-Avengers, pre-Ultron)
  • Guardians of the Galaxy (sometime in 2014)
  • Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 (after Guardians)
  • Avengers: Age of Ultron (takes place in 2015)
  • Ant-Man (takes place in 2015)
  • Captain America: Civil War (post-Ultron, pre-Infinity War)
  • Spider-Man: Homecoming (post-Civil War, pre-Infinity War)
  • Doctor Strange (takes place in 2016)
  • Black Panther (takes place in 2017)
  • Thor: Ragnarok (post-Ultron, pre-Infinity War)
  • Avengers: Infinity War (takes place in 2017)
  • Ant-Man and The Wasp (ambiguous, but fits nicely between IW and Endgame)
  • Avengers: Endgame (starts in 2017, finishes in 2022)
  • Spider-Man: Far From Home (post-Endgame)

Only 1 film to go before I get to see your review of Ant Man. The only other film on your list I've seen is Thor which I quite enjoyed if I remember correctly.

Ant-Man is garbage - I watched some of it and switched it off.
This time I'll have to sit through the whole thing :(

Also not looking forward to Black Panther - another forgettable movie.

Another movie I intend to not watch is Top Gun 2 which is due for release next June.

Three reasons why:
1. It's typical gung-ho America (**** yeah!) crap.
2. Tom Cruise is a ****.
3. Tom Cruise is a ****.

I haven't seen anything about Top Gun 2 but you know you could write the script on the back of a cigarette packet and read it back after watching it and the two would match completely.

Enjoy!


That trailer is probably all you need to watch - save yourself about 90 minutes of life you'll never get back.

I remember seeing Captain Marvel at the ABC Minors on Saturday mornings. Every episode finished with him in an impossible position: the next Saturday the ending was repeated often with a slight but important difference.

Dunno, Bro put the clip up but I haven't watched it. My hatred of Top Gun runs very deep.

I was forced to watch it last night - all the way through this time 😡

Good grief it's garbage!

The whole storyline is just junk - some guy hides a super suit for decades but then gives it away to a random criminal - well, he makes him "steal" it rather than giving it away.

It gets better though - said guy can control ants just by using an earpiece and thinking what he wants them to do.
Miraculously, he's able to simultaneously control multiple ants and issue different commands to each one, with the ants instinctively knowing which command is for them and not the millions of other ants around it.

Aarrrghhhhh!!!

She can watch ant man and the wasp on her ****ing own!
