Best and only director for Guardians, makes total sense
I appreciate you taking the time, it's nice to have a concise summary as a reminder of what exactly happened.I figured the guy was trolling and just trying to stir shit, but I'd still rather confront it with the facts as they are.
I loathe this attitude online of 1) branding a person with accusations based on literally no actual evidence, just to incite hysteria and controversy, and 2) denying a person redemption and failing to recognise their ownership and growth.
I can't believe I never saw this, that's amazing!
That's how it seems, which is what caused the upset against Disney as a reaction to his firing, though it's being reported that a replacement director was never even considered, so this may have just been an intentional way for Disney to step back from the situation temporarily.
I'm with you. Think the first one is much better. The second one had a really bad script. Not very funny and characters who just could not stop talking about how emotionally damaged they are. I get it, I don't need the film to continuously let me know how Rocket is a real softie beneath his irascible exterior or how Yondu is so much like Rocket, coming straight from the characters mouth themselves. That's just one example of the many character interactions in the film. I also didn't like the visuals in this that much. Ego's planet may have been deliberately designed to look like a garish painting but that doesn't change the fact that it looks garish.
Depends on how you approach the movie I guess. I followed GOTG from the initial announcement all the way to its final trailer, and I find the movie itself is just ok. From the trailers and premise, I expected something alot better than just a basic "how the team get together". Doesn't help that the fight sequence is wayyy inferior to Winter Soldier released a few months prior.
The character arcs are better defined and Vol 2 has a heavier emotional payoff. Seriously watch it again. Also the movie is straight beautiful with it's colors as opposed to Vol 1 with it's muted color palette at times.
Not a fan tbh. It turns a massacre into a cool scene. I mean I get it, it's an action comic book film and killing off the bad guys is par for the course but this scene is a bit too celebratory for my taste. I understand the appeal though, it's a likeable character showing off the extent of their powers.
Because it’s better to make light of pedophilia than be sexist or homophobic
I've watched it plenty of times. Its a good Marvel movie. Just not better than the first one in my opinion.
I mean, isn't that the whole premise of movies like John Wick?
I dunno, his tweets were bad, but if people can't get the chance to change and redeem themselves (which he seemed to have done), why bother and calling them out on it, you know? At least that's how I feel.
I like 2 a lot, and it 100% has more emotion.
