I think this is only the second time I’ve watched Winter Soldier, and I know it’s fan favorite, but I wasn’t really feeling it then, and I’m still not really feeling it now. I think the first time, I had a hard time keeping everything straight, and this time I knew what was going on, but there was still just too much going on.
God, this movie is so boring.
For Phase 2 of this Marvel series, I decided to break each movie into its own post. I’ve got a few to put up before leaving on vacation this week, so sorry if it feels a little spammy. But regardless: the journey continues:
I suspect Iron Man 3 is a movie that I enjoyed specifically because I’m not really that familiar with the comics.
Marvel moved the release date for Avengers: Infinity War up to April 27 which means I’ve been blowing through the previous movies in…well, kind of leisurely pace, actually, but it’s about to pick up. This is the first time I’ve done a (mostly) complete Marvel movie viewing, and it’s been interesting looking back at these movies that kicked off the universe. There’s a tiny little piece of me that wishes I’d gone for in-universe chronological order and inserted Agent Carter (which I’ve never seen) and Agents of SHIELD at their appropriate slots but honestly, who has the time? (Probably me, whenever Phase Four winds down.)
I want to get it out before tonight’s episode airs, so this post might be a little slapdash and skewed toward people who already watch Supernatural. So, to everyone else, sorry. To my SPN peeps, let’s talk!
Fulfills 2018 Movie Challenge No. 26. WHAT’S THAT GIRL?: A movie with talking animals.
The animation in The Secret Life of Pets is great. It’s just a really pretty movie, and I was primed to like it with its love-letter-to-New-York opening. But it’s definitely a movie where the parts are better than the whole. That said, the whole was still an enjoyable way to spend 90 minutes, if you’re just in a particular mood or have some kids to watch.
This Is Us is a confusing show. Not because it’s hard to follow — in fact it’s remarkably easy to follow given how the flashbacks jump around to various points in time. No, it’s confusing, because it doesn’t seem to know what story it wants to tell. This post contains spoilers through last week’s episode 2.11: The Fifth Wheel and the promo for tonight’s 2.12.
