lol you're probably right haha

I dont really give movies 1's or 2's though, to me giving it a 5 is enough to imply its trash

Based on your comments you really should though. On a scale of 1-10 a 5 is average, or in the case of your Captain Marvel score of 5.5/10, slightly above average. Doesnít sound like that actually falls in line with your thoughts. A 4 or 4.5/10 sounds a bit more appropriate. Just my 2 cents though.

I havenít seen the film yet but it doesnít look like anything special to me. Iron Man 3 is a complete dog though. Gonna be hard to sink that low.

yeah I guess 5/10 would be accurate, the same rating i'd give IM3. I didnt all out hate it, but it just really wasnt working for me

Funny you guys are bringing up IM3. I had mentioned how badly I thought IM2 was with Rourke that I think IM3 was so bad that I got deleted from my mind. Weird how I feel like I enjoyed IM movies but don't really like 2 or 3. I'm guessing I like IM more in the Avengers than IM itself.

just like in the comics Iron Man was always funner in the team setting IMO between him thor and cap he had the worst villains and solo stories, I think the movies kind of reflect that as well

IM was, at best, B-list before the movies, and probably lower. I would bet that if IM wasn't the first of the Marvel movies and didn't have that "holy crap, I can't believe they actually pulled off a good comic book movie, effects and all..." factor, the movie wouldn't even rank as high as it does on many people's lists.

And I agree, IM 2 and 3 blew. They are the only MCU movies I absolutely refuse to buy on DVD or Blu-Ray AND won't watch on TV when they're on, LOL.

To keep this derail going -

I believe there are only two, maybe three, mainstream comic characters that can carry solid solo movies due to their background AND rogues. The rogues are key. Those two are SpiderMan and Batman. Superman is the third. People will argue that Wolverine, Hulk, and Wonder Woman can/could hold their own. Sure, for maybe one film (Wolverine proved how long it took to get that right).

Every other character is OK alone, but really requires a team setting to make a good bunch of movies worth watching. JL could be great. GotG and Avengers are great. XMen could be great too.

So I think team movies will always be the way to go. I am very heststant to believe that the magic of the original Black Panther will be captured in the sequel, but we shall see.

it's really good. The last 20 - 30 minutes are intense!

Kubo and the Two Strings 9/10 - I really enjoyed this one, I watched it in 3D as well

Poltergeist (Remake) 5/10 - Another remake that should not exist, I wonder if the people who made this actually believed it was better than the original

Bumblebee - 7/10

They had a lot right with the story but they just couldn't keep it on the tracks without going off the rails and getting all cheesy with parts of it.... Seeing the retro Transformers at the beginning was pretty cool though....
