He did it in what seemed to be an evening. I know he's a genius, but it was strawberry floating ridiculous nonetheless. Even in a movie with all the things Moggy just stated.

Didn't Banner do most of the work already though? He only finished the solution because of all the work that had already been done, "Standing on the shoulders of giants" and all that.

Fantasy Island

I didn't watch it and it was still gooseberry fool. I actually think it may have sped up my marking of 15 papers about calculating the osmolarity of potato cell cytoplasm because somehow it made that more interesting.

The Kindred (1987) - 7/10

Random sci fi horror about a woman who creates a mutant and her adult son goes to investigate the house where the creature lives. I saw this when I was a kid and is freaked me out, it's still creepy and has some great practical effects.

The Gentlemen - 7

Really quite enjoyed this. Loved everyone hamming it up and Hugh Grant telling the story the way it was presented. Candidate for shittest heist double cross though, with 'theres just another man in the hedge' reveal. Felt like a Rick and Morty parody.

Iron Man 2 - 7/10
Obviously not a patch on the first film, but still enjoyable nonetheless. Vanko is an admittedly under-developed villain, but Mickey Rourke still manages to make him intimidating and cool. I think the better villain is Sam Rockwell as Justin Hammer, it's a real shame he didn't go on to have a bigger role in the MCU.

Thor - 8/10
Marvel pulled off a major achievement with this one, bringing together regular superhero storytelling with the magical norse mythology that most cinema-goers probably knew strawberry float all about, and it blended perfectly. Great performances all round, great soundtrack and visuals. Negatives were a slightly underwhelming final battle.

Now let's go whoop some Nazi Hydra tail! :toot:

The main thing I remember Thor for now are all the bloody Dutch angles they used! :lol:

It does give the film a unique look, to be fair. It certainly stands out from the rest of the MCU stylistically.

Captain America: The First Avenger - 6/10
It's a perfectly watchable film, but it's just not one of my favourites. The action is fine, the characters are all fine and the story is fine, but something about it just doesn't work for me. Maybe I'm not American enough, I dunno.

There is also some seriously ropey CGI/greenscreen that really breaks the immersion for me, it's odd that it looks so much cheaper than the films that came before it - you'd think special effects budgets would increase with every successful MCU release, but apparently not.

Most of the outdoor action scenes seem to take place in the same bit of forest too, such variety :lol:

Hugo Weaving nails it as Red Skull though, he leans into the material and it's great to watch. Same with Tommy Lee Jones, great stuff.

Agent Carter in that red dress though, damn :datass:

Captain America is probably my favourite phase 1 film altogether.

I think Thor 1 is better than the reputation it seems to have, but yeah it's still not better than Captain America.

Cap has definitely been the most consistent performer in the MCU

Definitely holds up the most from being a period piece.

I think it is probably between IM2 and Thor 2 for the worst films in the whole MCU

I'd rate Antman and the Wasp as the worst, boring, no threat, forgettable villian that most people who have seen the film couldn't even name, all action scenes in the trailer, casting Lawrence Fishburne as Goliath and then.... Having him sit behind a desk.

Thor 2 has some intesting Loki moments and the portal battle idea works in part. Iron Man 2 has a great cast, one excellent action scene, the introduction of Black Widow and it is filmed very well.
