#3770560 Essay's Top Ten

Posted by BigDMcGee on 16 June 2018 - 09:56 AM in General

The reason I liked SMH is the same reason really that IW isn't on my list. I like more personal stories rather than big spectacles that rush through character development and try to do 10 things at once. I loved Vulture (who is a corny, terrible villain in the comic). He was well developed and even likable.
Spoiler

All of the action was well executed and impactful, none of the cgi vs cgi wars between armies that are boring and lack any tension. Plus, I generally love the Tony vs Spiderman dynamic. Also PP was the first credible PP onfilm. He was perfect as Parker.

John Wick is straight up the best action movie since the Matrix. That Keanu is the star of the two best action movies ( well, 3, including John Wick 2) of the last 20 years is crazy. The Matrix and John Wick are also the two best comic book movies, even though they are not actually based on comic books.

In Essay's defense, Marvel has done a relatively shitty job developing female characters, on the large screen at least.

I would have played the race card there, Cobly, because leaving off black panther is just bonkers.



#3770329 What Is The Last Movie You Saw?

I Would agree with Brvy's list until solo. I'd have it FA, Last Jedi, Solo, then Episodes 3, 2 and 1. Bry made a good point about HC, but then again that kid they got to play Annie in Episode one was AWFUL too, and honestly, the writing and directing in those 3 movies made people like Natalie Portman, Ewan McGreggor and Liam Neeson seem like shitty actors too. I've never seen a movie series get less out of their acting talent than those 3 movies.

RIP Ros. She deserved better. Cersei is my favorite villain I think. Ramsey was a bit one dimensional. If I'm going one dimensional villains on this show, make mine the one that can raise an undead dragon.

1. Empire
2a. New Hope
2b. Rogue One
4. Return of the Jedi
5. Solo
6. Phantom Menace (I actually really like Phantom. Probably more than almost anyone outside of George Lucas. I LOVED the podrace.)
7. Force Awakens (I love Daisy Ridley. She's fantastic.)
8. Attack of the Clones (I really like most of this movie as well. It only breaks down for me toward the end. I love the water planet.)
9. Last Jedi (I hated how they handled Luke and his whole arc in this movie.)
10. Revenge of the Sith (I just hate Hayden Christensen so much. He's such a terrible actor, and he has a major role in this film.)

Wrong thread. Please keep your top 10 lists in the proper place

Once the show passed the books, they really took ignoring pace to some special levels.

And somehow, George managed to go the other direction in pace, post-Red Wedding.

100% and I like the way the TV show has been, post-Red Wedding way, way more than the books

How about we ditch this terrible thread, and start an "Essay's Personal Record Book" thread. That would be a much better thread.

I just watched the entire series again, I do it at least once a year.

I think the biggest problem as the series progresses is that the storytelling and pace of things get compacted unlike the first season.

Without spoiling anything for you though on the other hand from a technical standpoint it's keeps getting better and better. Some of the battle scenes that you haven't seen yet are truly great.


I agree with all of that. I think the Red Wedding is the peak of the show, from a story telling standpoint. I think it's a slow down hill turn in the quality of story telling after that. Not that it ever gets bad, and there are many great characters, iconic scenes, and as Bob said some truly incredibly, cinematic battle scenes. But I do think the story telling suffers from the pace, and the amount of balls they are trying to keep in the air at the same time.
