Dude I agree so far, just watched Lethal Weapon 2 and it was more comedic, I enjoyed the comedy, but the first movie was overall just better, the plot had a few annoying bits as well

Either way excited to watch 3 and 4

Watched an episode of the new TV show as well, I liked it a lot, gonna binge watch that after the movies Smile

All 4 are fantastic.

This book/movie got brought up the other night at a family dinner and the conversation quickly turned a bit tense due to some of the more controversial aspects of it and the author (universalism, the Second Commandment, God's true character vs what was portrayed in the story, etc.).

I had no pre-determined opinions before seeing this movie. I had one person tell me the book is depressing. Another told me it was a good story of redemption. Other than that, I knew nothing. To be quite honest, I don't understand where the controversy lies.

The controversy lies with the "theology" of The Shack.  A bunch of folks got their feathers rustled when God the Father was depicted as a large black woman which, while obviously inconsistent with Scripture and potentially against the Second Commandment, is the least of the issues IMO.  I just did a quick internet search and found a few resources that may be helpful:

Thor Ragnarok. By far the best super hero movie in my book. Absolutely loved it.

Justice League - Overall I enjoyed this movie.  It isn't the best of the superhero films but isn't the worst.  The villian seems a bit rushed, but that is just to push the characters to join together as a team.  Sadly, you don't get much in the way of origin stories, but WB is trying to use the team up to launch the other films where Marvel/Disney built the stories and then constructed a team.

Thor Ragnarok. By far the best super hero movie in my book. Absolutely loved it.

Both this and Spiderman Homecoming were big letdowns for me.  Thor is now a smartmouthed jokester just all of a sudden?  I would have expected all his jokes from Tony Stark.  It felt forced especially since Thor has been more of the straight-forward get down to business kind of guy thus far.  Also, the funniest bits were already ruined in the trailer.

Spiderman was still wrong despite Marvel getting involved.  Where were Spidey's spider senses?  His reliance on Stark technology over the use of spider senses was more out of character than Tobey Macquire's webs coming out of his wrist (which makes more sense if he is truly genetically infused with spider DNA now).

I am starting to think that Marvel is starting to show signs of "jumping the shark" and wearing itself out.  The storytelling, at least to me, is getting weaker as we go as we see with the new Thor and Spiderman films.  When you leave out imporant character details, hide the identity of major side characters (the quick switch of the young lady to M.J.), and turn serious characters into comedians, it shows they are feeling like they've run out of great ideas.  In a couple of years when they try to sneak in the modern comic book equivalents (Jane Foster as Thor, Riri Williams as Iron Man, and Miles Mprales as Spiderman) to try to be more diverse and shake the audiences up who have grown tired of the genre, I think we will see a stark drop in number of ticket sales as the general populace will not really accept the shift.  I think this is what Marvel is planning since they have stated that there really isn't a Phase 4 for these films.  To really do something new, the big switcheroo is coming as these newer films just lack the luster of their predecessors in my opinion.

Actually, I've heard that there will be an animated Spider-Man movie (not sure if it'll be part of the MCU, but likely not) which will star Miles Morales. That might be a way to ease fans into the transition, but I doubt they'll make Miles the new Spidey that soon anyway. Plus, Marvel does have plans for the future with the Black Panther and Captain Marvel films.

I didn't see Thor as a jokester as much as being the butt of some jokes. His character has evolved over the movies. If you watch the first one, he was cocky and got taken down for that. He seems like he may have some back a bit in some aspects. And there were plenty of funny bits in that movie. Some were hysterical and had me laughing out loud..

Well, that's another thing.  I don't expect a comedy all the way through a Marvel hero film.  I expect some comedy.  This one seemed like it existed more to parody the series rather than add to it.  For me, it is my least favorite of all the Avengers films.

This weekend we watched the 1974 version of Murder On The Orient Express.  It's a fun flick.  I'm grateful no one had ever spoiled the ending of it for me which made the finale/review more exciting.  That being said...

SPOILER!!!:
...neither Veronika nor I particularly cared for the "moral lesson" of the ending.  The viewer was supposed to be sympathetic to everyone whose lives had been terribly affected by the evil man they murdered, and therefore the viewer was supposed to be happy that Poirot does the "right" thing by letting everyone literally get away with a particularly sadistic murder.

That would work for younger generations.  However, I don't think that a lot of older fans will like it when they make the transitions.  I am familiar with these characters but not the new generation and therefore feel no connection to them at all.  So, when they do the ol' switcheroo, I am done with the superehero genre.  I might be wrong, but I feel that the movies would be more profitable with the more well known characters in the suits.  But, perhaps diversity for the sake of being PC will prevail.

Don't forget the 8th book "The Wind Through the Keyhole".  Not necessary for the overall story line but still a great read.

Loved Justice League!

Just got back from watching it and I can not believe all the critics and people that dont like it!

I loved the chemistry, and I feel that with the Flash and Cyborg we got the just of their origins and now we can move on
I loved the scenes between WW and Batman, it was cool to see them interacting trying to decide on leadership issues

Steppenwolf, I felt was a good villain, we get the motivation behind his actions and we see him as a forerunner for Darkseid

I think Aquaman was my favorite of all the new characters, my favorite scene was definitely with the lasso of truth

The CGI was not that bad or overused IMO

[color=#000000]SPOILERS[/color]:
Superman is back and better than ever, and I am glad that the third act was so joyous and ended in a different way than just what I expected
