Bray Wyatt on the heel team helping to take down 2 Fiends seems more compelling.
I expect a complete team double turn because Sami hyping Nakamura taking down The Fiend with over the top ringside commentary and RKO out of nowhere to take down The Fiend are definitely hype. Rollins teaming with The Fiend is very heel behavior too.

The Fiend could be the new Aces & Eights, with everyone wearing Fiend masks, with the swerve being that Bray Wyatt was the leader all along!!!

Depends. I really like comic book movies as a genre so like, Marvel 'only' having 5/10 on mine isn't really that damning cause like my top 25 movies might actually have the entirety of that top 10 in it-- definitely the top 7 at least. I think among people who are into them, it does things really well.

But most movie snobs probably scoff at my movie tastes anyway so I'm not really the right guy to have this discussion with on a lot of fronts.

That being said I'll still take Nolan Batman over the entire MCU even with the disappointing mediocrity that is Rises.

but how many of the individual films would anyone put on a top 10 superhero movie list?


Hmm. Got curious...

1. The Dark Knight
2. The Avengers
3. Batman Begins
4. Captain America: Civil War
5. Captain America: The Winter Soldier
6. X-Men: Days of Future Past
7. Logan
8. Deadpool
9. Thor: Ragnarok
10. Guardians of the Galaxy

Decent amount I guess? You are right that relative to the volume they put out it's not a great ratio though.

Yeah I watched most of them with my mother too and many out of order that's sort of the barometer I use to gauge how easily followed they are without having seen/remembered the pieces.

Endgame requires Infinity War, and I would argue Infinity War itself is a bit too involved in references to tackle as a first movie unlike most of them, but beyond those two? Nah. You get by. Ultron is probably the third worst in this regard but I would argue that movie simply isn't very good even if you "get it" so that's just a symptom of that to an extent.

I think the Infinity War movies kinda jump too deep into that but in general I agree with the idea that movies enhancing other movies is not a bad thing.

The important thing is that it's kept to enhancing and not as necessary knowledge, which I do feel the MCU is generally good at doing. The movies are fairly good at introducing you to the relevant ideas in a brief enough way that it doesn't feel excessive to people who are unfamiliar, but with enough detail that it gets the unfamiliar people sufficiently up to speed to follow the plots.

Why have you been interacting with them so long, though? Like if they don't like you are you really getting a lot out of the interactions? It's strange to me.

Like maybe the problem is you value interactions with people who are detractors of yours and you should try to limit interacting with those people? Like I can't really say there are any people like that with me. The ones who don't like me we just don't hang in the same places anyway. Probably the closest would be like Whiskey_Nick but I mean, he doesn't dislike me so much that he outright refuses to engage me or actively antagonizes me so it doesn't really matter.

Hard disagree

Winter Soldier gets benefits in order from watching

Captain America (Bucky backstory and Captain America/Hydra backstory)
Avengers (Black Widow and Nick Fury/Shield have big roles so having some extra familiarity with them is nice)

I wouldn't say any of the other films add a single thing, and neither one is necessary to watch to follow Winter Soldier

Helps that Avengers is also quite good and requires nothing to follow it either so it's an ANH thing of "why not watch it" you know.

is it so weird for me to get upset when someone hates me for no good reason?


Yeah a bit, I'd say, if they're not significant in your life. You'll interact with thousands of people in your lifetime, many of which will be idiots, insane, or just unpleasant or worthless people you shouldn't care about. Caring about all of them without regard to their significance in your life seems like a recipe to be unhappy. It's fighting a meaningless battle.

Whenever someone doesn't like you, think about how your life would change if they liked you instead. If the answer is that it wouldn't, or it wouldn't beyond you feeling a bit better about yourself, then it's meaningless, really.

That's not to say people on a message board can't be positive influences. Like there are people in this topic that would actually make me somewhat upset if they didn't like me enough to have conversations with me, but at the same time if they disliked me we probably would have never reached a point where I'd care if they disliked me either as they would have shunned me before we had many interesting conversations. So yeah it's just hard to care much about the people who hate in general, you know?

Because while it is without the context of some questionably good movies its hard to make sense of and it's like....not capable of joining the ranks of the truly classic films.


I disagree with this on Winter Soldier, and frankly, most of the MCU movies. I will give you this for certain of the bigger crossover spectacle movies like the Infinity Wars and to a much lesser extent Thor Ragnarok and Civil War, but a lot of the MCU movies stand fine without any of the lead-in movies and they only really serve to enhance them. Like you can absolutely watch, follow, and enjoy the likes of The Avengers or Winter Soldier without any of the preceding films. There are certain plot details or characters you won't immediately know, but the movies do a good enough job of introducing these things at a base level that the pre-existing knowledge is not necessary.

Unless you're saying highly regarded sequels like the Empire Strikes Back or Terminator 2 are "hard to make sense of" without having seen the preceding films, because I would disagree with you on those as well.

I mean if they're just making up reasons for hating you or hate you for a completely stupid reason then why does it matter to you?

Like I dunno take a step back and consider that instead of you it was a movie you liked, and they just pull something out of their ass to criticize the movie about that doesn't really apply but stick to their guns on it hard. Are you gonna take them seriously or are you going to just think they're an idiot or insane or whatever else?

Like I just don't see a reason to get upset about it unless they're really big parts of your day to day life. Which just shouldn't happen on a message board. Use the ignore feature if they're approaching that you won't miss the conversation that much trust me.

Kramer Vs. Kramer, Rain Man, Forrest Gump, Saving Private Ryan, Dances with Wolves, Terms of Endearment, Titanic were massive hits that were in the top 3 or so of their year. No similar type of movie would come close to their box office numbers today. I know people will quibble with the quality of some of the films I mentioned, but regardless of how successful they might have been at it, all of those films were attempting to appeal to something deeper than "Oh hey, I recognize the characters and settings up on the screen,"


I don't really agree most of those films tried anything more deep or whatever than the better Marvel movies do.

Unless you're saying they've got more to them entirely because they don't utilize pre-established characters, which is one way to interpret what you said

They are "event films" sounds like an intelligent criticism until you realize any film series that builds off itself and is successful will become a series of "event films" so really all you're saying with that take is either that you don't want any films to build off themselves or you don't want any films to be successful, both of which are asinine statements.

Hatred is absolutely a choice, even when people hate you first. In the case of people hating you, determining likely reasons why is a good first step to not just reactively hate back.

If the reasons are invalid, shrugging off their hate becomes a lot easier. If they're valid, you can channel that energy into self improvement instead of hate.

A good second step is to determine how important the person is in your life, really. The less important they are, again, just shrugging them off becomes easier.

I'm not saying it's an easy choice to not hate, but there are steps you can take to try to avoid it, particularly on a message board. My negative feelings about anyone here have peaked at annoyance. I feel if you escalate beyond this using the ignore feature more may be helpful. Or maybe just detaching yourself from the board a bit more if you can.

Scandal in Belgravia is actually the first episode I saw of the series. I kinda actually like that the Moriarty stuff in the beginning wraps up really quick. A strong point of the Sherlock series to me is that every episode is worth watching as a stand alone thing and all the back referencing is just gravy more than necessary to follow the plot of each episode-- feel like if you linger too long on that plot thread it removes that appeal. Like I'd have felt lost in the episode as the first one I saw otherwise.

I mean I guess you could argue that 1-3 shouldn't have ended on quite as strong a cliffhanger that needed to be hastily resolved or sidetrack the whole plot of 2-1, but yeah I dunno I'm just saying I never really thought of that as a flaw of the episode.

I'm actually more amazed by the contingent of people who are apparently actively managing air pressure in their ass all day long! That sounds really annoying.

I definitely don't fart 10-20 times a day most days. I do it few enough times that I can hold it till I'm in a bathroom or walking around outside where I'm out of the area with a quickness.

I mean you don't have to love it but it felt like you were going in with an agenda to hate it with the weird stuff you took to complain about. Like if I was going in trying to nitpick or read a write-up of the match or something I could see these things being bad on paper but in practice if you thought the match ending with a victory roll or continuing after the SSP was bad I'm just confused. Like I was hyped through the whole thing, and I'm definitely a person who will rag on matches that just feel like a 'bunch of moves' or go too long-- this was not that by any stretch. The match hit a high point somewhere in the middle and held that note till the end. Private Party needed every bit of that time to really come out looking amazing and I felt it ended at a perfect time in a perfect way given the story of the match. The Bucks got reckless and were punished for it. Like I'm not even a real fan of the Bucks all things considered. I hated them for a long time cause I felt they were just a pile of flashy moves on a pair of guys that look like cocky children, but they've grown into an act I kinda like by getting really good at transitions and flow and connecting with the audience and stuff over the years-- not best tag team ever status or anything but I like em. But man that match was something special for a TV match.

Then once you got that out of your system you softened and start giving praise to stuff like Darby vs Havoc that didn't deserve any to temper things.

I mean Meltzer complaining about the booking may even be a worse complaint than anything you said so I guess you're in good company.

Like it's definitely far from a perfect show. I could complain about a lot, but like, the one thing I couldn't have imagined being better was the opener.
