Just watched Eternals. It was...okay? Gotta say I've not loved any of the Phase 4 movies so far (haven't seen Spider-man yet). The Disney+ shows are bringing some good heat though!

BTW, what was the deal with the Eternals post credit scene? Who/what were they teasing? I'm assuming it's not something more casual Marvel fans would understand.

Which part was the interesting part, though?

And I disagree with was an hour of fluff. It did heavy backstory, exposition, and character showcasing. It just revolved around a story that perhaps shouldn't have been told in a movie format.

I saw Eternals, and uh wow. I didn't hate it but holy what is this?

In fairness this movie isn't really that far below the MCU's bottom tier and it has plenty of interesting ideas, but there are just too many main characters and most of the film's problems spiral from there. On a scale of 1-10 I'd give this movie a 6 edging towards a 5.

introducing a bunch of characters was one thing I was worried about going in but during the movie I felt it was done pretty well with giving most the cast some shine

... oddly enough the character that felt pretty minimal to me is one I've seen a lot of praise for, Makkari

Kumail Nanjiani certainly nopes right out at the end, but I like that not everybody agrees with the choice to stop the emergence but that his character doesn't want to fight his family.

So, Eternals. If Thanos's brother is an Eternal, does that mean Thanos was an Eternal too? I wonder why Arishem never stopped him once he went off his programming.

Watched Eternals. I liked it well enough. I thought it did a fine job of juggling all the characters. Only real complaint is the Deviant plotline petering out at the end in a fairly unremarkable way, but like said earlier, it was a red herring.

Also I feel like surely Tiamut's formation and emergence must've done some actual damage to the Earth's interior/core? lol

A big reason I didn't hate the film, I enjoyed the ideas it tried to put forward. Thinking about it the film at least establishes the title characters well enough, I just felt like it didn't do enough with them. Sort of like my opinion on a certain other MCU movie...

Also, am I the only one who found the climax reminiscent of the Day of Lavos?

also, not to be that guy, but (Eternals climax spoilers) the celestial appearing, even just its head and fingers would've fucked up the ocean/planet way more than it actually did

and it begs the question of what exactly shield/sword is doing and why they didn't show up immediately

Eternals wasn't bad at all, I enjoyed it

Some issues (including a bit of ropey acting) but good. Think I prefer it to Shang-Chi (which I liked) for example

I like that it took itself a bit more seriously too. It didn't undercut itself with humour like GotG or Ragnarok, which set it apart

When people are talking about the copy-paste thing, are they just talking about origin stories? I feel like all of Marvel's sequels have been fairly unique from each other.

I know there are measurable and observable similarities in Marvel/Disney films in terms of pacing their acts/plot structure. But this is a movies thing and not necessarily a Marvel thing. I definitely agree that origins stories have been very formulaic (which could be an issue with the source material) and Shang Chi in particular felt extremely derivative. For the most part it's a complaint to disregard I think.

Strong disagree on that. I'd say from 2017 onward Ragnarok, Infinity War and Eternals are the only ones I'd argue as being unique.

Sure - different people look for different things

I wouldn't say that about NWH for instance. Even though it was different in a way, I took it more as like a souped-up Marvel movie.

Thats why I love Eternals. Its well written, unique, and diverse without being insulting or attacking fans and telling them theyre a bunch of idiots (one tweet saying the right people are mad doesnt count). I wasnt liking the movie to be a contrarian or whatever; I legitimately do love it. Plus I enjoy history, and the way they had the characters be a part of history was very clever. The credits animations were especially really good.

Yeah to be fair Eternals clearly had ambition behind it and that kept me somewhat interested in where the story was going. The title characters mostly just came off as one-note to me, although there's definitely potential.

You know what thats my bad, I definitely got two different trains of thought mixed up there.

Should've said "I'd argue Eternals, as well as Rganrok and IW are probably the only three earning that distinction."
