For me, RDJ as Tony Stark nails it down 3 times...

The Avengers - upon Tony's return to Stark Tower to confront Loki. From disengaging his suit outside walking in, Tony looks like he's finally having to face the fact that every single thing he's known to date about himself, SHIELD, & the fate of his Iron Man self will never ever be the same again. He's going from being Iron Man as hero hobby + R&D specialist, to being forced into Avengers' duty & action. He looks deflated & he looks pissed. I think RDJ nailed that. Asking Loki 'You want a drink? I'm having one.' with such disdain; he'd literally rather be anywhere else in time & place than where he is then & there, having to deal with the mess & his role in solving it.

Age of Ultron - Ultron's awakening, crashing the party. I LOVE RDJ's split second reaction, he as Stark quick flipping his mobile to see wtf is going on & why is this happening? Now? With all his team in the same room, when he's not next to nearly close to unveiling his Ultron plans (his stumbling off guard reaction visual of it makes me laugh every time). Thrown into the deep end by Ultron himself, Tony looks yet again like omg wtf now?!? Chased that moment later on during Vision's origin, Rogers walking in 'I'm only going to say this once.' 'How about nunce!?!'. RDJ as Stark nailing it.

Civil War - during Ross' deliberation regarding the UN's plans. Following the footage of the battles, & after Ross pounces back on Rogers 'Tell me, Captain, do you know where Thor and Banner are right now? 'Cause you can bet if I misplaced a couple of 30 megaton warheads, there'd be consequences.' Ross isn't wrong, & pointing that out with Tony deliberately quiet rocking in his chair behind everyone lands the drama for me perfectly. Again, Tony wants the out, he wants the Avengers & superhero'ing to be tamed a bit from where it's reached. RDJ's non verbals during that entire scene is awesome, & of course his blow up at the compound later shows his true cards.

3 little moments, they tie so much together of the MCU for me brilliantly.

My first time. I really liked the first half, adventurous. Last hour or so as war/political film ran a bit out of steam.
So yeah, I did it, it's in me.

Johnny WishboneSo if any theater wants to have a "men only screening" when Thor: Ragnarok drops later this year, my reaction will be the same.

Matthew Good... BandJust so I'm clear: Does everyone hate Prometheus ONLY because of the idiotic characters??
Which leads us to Covenant: The characters are almost exactly as dumb.?


I agree with a lot of this...except, obviously some Engineers survived. This prequel series is building toward the Engineer ship crashing on LV-426, with the space jockey birthing an Alien, hence setting up the early scene in the original film. So it's likely those Engineers who were off-world during David's apocalypse will eventually return, find everyone dead, get pissed, and go looking for the culprits. Or the Engineers will happen upon David somehow. Either way, we could still get answers about the Engineers and why they decided to terminate us. I personally don't really want an answer to that, but I am definitely more interested in Engineers than I am in another series of Alien attacks.

I guess my hope now is for David to be dominated by the Engineers because I've lost a lot of respect for the character.

I can still remember believing Episode I would be just as epic as IV-VI.

What is the math for those of us who enjoyed Prometheus and didn't enjoy so much Covenant?
Elizabeth & David were very good characters in the first, some of the others not so bright because some of the others weren't so bright to take money for a mission to the unknown from a megalomaniac.
I didn't enjoy David's turn in the 2nd - we left off with him on a joy ride with Elizabeth who 'saved' him by taking him along. Then we find out nothing about her except David offed her & began xeno biology projects, including using her as a host yes?
I've been reading how it's realistic to expect synthetics to go off in this universe, yet until now only if they were programmed to yes? David turns because why, he's lonely & yearning to play god?
The genocide was a big moment, & yet told in flashback didn't do much for me.
Scott gave us the first steps towards the Engineers' raison d'etre, & all but abandons that angle for its sequel. Dislike.

Captain America: Winter Soldier B+
My first time, a bit underwhelmed as I've been for most all MCU solo films. Captain America running around solo (or with Black Widow here & there) feels weird - for a team leader to acting like he's Batman or something. I love the Tony Stark - Steve Rogers dynamic & thus only the Avengers films truly do it for me (+ Civil War of course).

I really like Prometheus if no one knew already. Covenant felt like a filler movie - neither Prometheus 2 as imagined nor an Alien film as franchise fans clamoured for.
To be honest, the lane switch feels akin to Independence Day 2 - are we starting to buy in simply for Scott's & the Alien names alone?

+
- The Xenomorphs were well done. This felt much more Aliens than Alien, which is unique because this is really Scott's first turn at pure action thriller for his franchise. I have not seen Predators, but this film reminded me of its trailers - smart ensemble lands on intriguing planet, gets taken apart by title hostiles, the end.
- Fassbender's dual roles were well done. Could've been a disaster.

-
- David turned evil. Horrible decision, not least he was my fav of Prometheus + we last left him with a glass half full, high note. This film may soon not exist for me due to the stupid lane change it took from Prometheus' macro premise & closing shots.
- Lots of F bombs... didn't bother me, & yet the film was littered with them making me laugh & cringe.

A former FBI agent skyping with the CBC suggests the FBI will actually feel even more emboldened to find the truths.
He flat out suggested that Trump calling their former director a Showboat & unfit etc in effect insults every last agent & employee of the FBI.

Trump's utter & complete lack of judgement on full display now, nowhere to hide. Thinking he could just fire the head of the snake & have the media focus on anything/everything else but the Russian investigation... the complete opposite now in full throttle effect.

The agent btw underscored that it's not the FBI investigation which should be concerning Americans, it's what Trump's DOJ does with those FBI findings.

DOJ on the clock. Git yer popcorn ready.

TeamCanadaWhy can't this all be framed as it is - a Russian attack on the American democratic electoral process, being shrugged off (at best) by the sitting President of the United States of America.
Rather than Orange Menace at it again playing Reality Whore in Chief.

Both/And?

And right now, I think that the shrugging of fellow Republicans over this is actually more alarming for the health of our democracy. ?Trump is sincerely a lunatic, but these fuckabillies are straight craven. ?Hooked on that tax rock.

Had Obama fired Comey over Clinton's email investigation, he would've been impeached the next day before breakfast.

I love Colbert's #SwampTheDrain
