    The Dark Knight can bank on being seen by people who didn't see the last film, but Return of the King really can't. Doctor Strange is a Dark Knight. Infinity War is a Return of the King in the most extreme version possible. Banking on people seeing earlier films isn't necessarily bad.

    You can’t judge a movie that’s not meant to stand alone based on whether it can stand alone or not.

    I disagree with almost every view you expressed in here... Star Lord is no different... I don't think that it's pushing diversity... I will give it to you that not *every character has progression* but Thor, Iron Man, Rocket, Groot, Dr. Strange, Gamora, and definitely Thanos all have interesting characters arcs.
    Also, you criticize it for not standing on its own and expecting you to know the past films... but it's a sequel...
    Do you go into a ____2 without having seen the first one and really expect to understand everything? No, that's usually part of what being a sequel is.

    The main problem here is you shouldnt be grading it right now since its basically a part 1. You cant really give it a grade until after the next film.

    I feel like marvel has grown its audience over the years and you are severely underestimating their fan base. If you like romantic comedies why would you go watch this movie, if you didnt keep up with the rest of the marvel cinematic universe why would you go watch this movie except for the entertainment value because there is a large portion of Americans that just like to see stuff blow up and watch things that would normally be impossible and disconnect from reality even for just a little bit I think it accomplishes the goal every movie has which is to entertain. That being said your right, it doesnt stand on it's own as well as iron man 1 or cap the first avenger because these are origin films literally designed to stand alone. This is the culmination of years of other films it's like going to five star diner and expecting take out which is not what the food was designed for but still accomplishes the goal to fill your belly.

    Well I get it marvel movies aren't for everyone but he really showed no real arguments as to why the movies were bad. Like I get it you don't care about the characters anymore but the only reason you wouldn't is because you don't care about the characters from the start. Every movie builds off the last movie. It's a new(ish) style of movies in which it's not just a sequel building off a sequel. This on the other hand is multiple different movies building off each other. I think that's where people don't like it. You have to see all of the movies in order to understand then next film based chronologically when they come out (mostly) obviously you aren't going to like this as a standalone film if you don't know any of the back story... I can agree that I think thanos was built up badly and was only reinforced as the strongest bad guy by people who knew him in the comics. comic book movies are different from other movies. They don't have a traditional plot sequence. I know they aren't for everyone but the only reason you think it's a bad movie is because it's not a good standalone film (minus political shit cause who gives a fuck it's just a movie) is just dumb. And no I'm not a lover of marvel films just because they are super heros, I'm extremely critical of movies, but this was just a (rarely seen) poor argument from my good man steven

    Full fan service this movie. Don't get me wrong I enjoyed it to a certain extent. But for me this van be wrote off as a build up movie. So if the next movie makes up for it then all is well. If it doesn't then it's a big let down this movie.

    Only thumbs down that I have ever given you.
    I love the movie for the same reasons you don't like the movie. I was just talking to my son about this. I think to really enjoy this movie you really needed to go back and binge-watch all the others to get the full scope of Infinity War.
    My only down side to this movie is that not one of the characters said "No shit Sherlock" and have Tony Stark and Dr. Strange look. That would have been amazeballs.

  • The Mitch Zone

    What's funny is that the dislikes to this video is nearly as many as the likes, which is as it should be. Lol I don't think they know much about movies like they do with politic-related subjects. Clearly not everybody agrees with them, and the ones who disagree isn't in the minority. Myself included. They kept saying that basically not many people cares about the Heroes, and that the writers/directors assumed that people care... Well, if that's the case, then why was the *majority* of people who watched it was heartbroken and devastated at the end, huh?? Myself included... I get that they were just giving their thoughts, opinions, and criticisms of the movie, but so am I. This is MY opinion. The movie was great. Yes, I said GREAT, and I mean it. I'm not changing anything. Good day. 👌

    Okay but when you say all this stuff about the MCU then you say it’s gotta build a lot on characters (witch it did but it’s not an origins story). Dude mcu is like one massive story, you don’t start a show on the 6th season...so annoying when people try and build social issues into these films. Stan lee wrote a shit ton of this stuff into his comics. Anyone thinking it’s because of modern day shit is just flat out wrong.

    I liked it because I grew up with superhero movies the first movies my parents showed me were the Sam Rami spiderman movies and I loved them because I was young and impressionable and spiderman was really cool, and my love for spiderman gave me a love for superheroes in general and then iron man came out in 2008 and I loved it beacause I was 8 at the time and I was still very impressionable, ive grown up watching these movies and that's why I loved this movie.

  • DragonNinja 365

    Infinity Wars was not made to stand alone. If you take a random Star Wars movie (not counting number four) or a random Lord of the Rings, they aren't going to stand alone. That's why they are movie series.

  • DragonNinja 365
    DragonNinja 365 2 months ago

    Did he seriously just say Doctor Doom was a better villain than Thanos?! Is there some Fantastic Four movie I missed somewhere? I mean the one from the first attempt was pretty good, even if the movie wasn't great, but he was no Thanos.

  • DragonNinja 365

    I think Starlord was in character. He always freaks out when he learns someone killed his loved ones. Remember how quick he turned on his dad? And everything else was on point.

  • DragonNinja 365
    DragonNinja 365 2 months ago

    I like your politics, but not your movie criticism. Infinity Wars was amazing!!!! One of the best movies of all time. The audience was earned. The reason they assumed we cared about the characters was because we did. The way they brought everything together was incredible! And I don't think the marvel movies are SJW films. (The tv series are a different story, but the movies are fine.) I was really worried when they got to Black Panther, but it wasn't putting down white people as evil and I thought the whole thing was very fair. Same thing with Thanos's crazy overpopulation concerns. He's evil, all the good guys believe he's crazy and wrong. Maybe I just watched it differently, but I didn't feel the overpopulation is a huge threat like I thought it might. P.S.I hated Logan. The premise was just so stupid. I don't care how good the action or acting is if the story is dumb.

    This movie is an amalgam of all the previous Marvel movies and is the sequel to them all. It is not intended to be a standalone movie and to look at it through that lens... well, it makes sense why you might not like it. Don't get me wrong, what you said is fair, but I think you missed the point of the movie.

    I am *really* getting tired of people who use the fact that these movies are tied-in with each other as a reason why they're bad. It's like people who complain about not having the entire context for a sequel story.
    First off, when you start a comic-book-based movie universe, that's the entire point that all these movies tie together and you may have to watch SOME of them to get the whole story. (You only have to watch Avengers 1, Civil War, and...Ragnarok really for Infinity War to make sense. The horror. Three movies.) These movies are easily accessible, and considering how much money they keep making, I don't think people are having a hard time keeping up with it.
    Second, these movies do a pretty good job giving you enough context to get thrown in. Things like the Accords, Asgard, and all that are explained.
    THIRD, NO, STEVEN, you *don't* need to be a mega fan of the MCU that loves *every* movie and so on. I disliked Thor: The Dark World, Thor Ragnarok, Guardians 1, Ant Man and the Wasp, and Black Panther. I'm lukewarm on Iron Man 2, Spider-Man Homecoming, Ant Man, and Captain America 1. Even genuinely liking or loving all the other movies, that's still 9 I don't consider great movies. Still able to enjoy this movie.
    Fourth (and people already touched like this), this movie isn't made to "stand on its own", and it's not designed to "create" characters for you to care about. They already did all that with all the other movies. The characters they do focus on new for this movie like the Black Order aren't designed to be relatable. Thanos on the other hand gets a ton of focus and character depth. You know what though? You can still care about these characters.
    At least Ben Shapiro addressed the logic of Thanos's plan instead of this nonsense.

    The point was that it banks on all the other films. It’s a complete “finale” to all the solo films. You can’t introduce every character and make them have a backstory with this many people. The only person we didn’t know was thanos, and they “humanized” him to a certain extent while giving him true motivation for his actions.

    My only gripe with the film was Thanos never had been developed enough for us to feel how the film makers apparently try to want us to. I felt there was too much told to us about his character without any developed.
    Yes, I know that he has been introduced but that was still not character development.
    Fun movie though.

  • Snootigan

    Okay so the reason it doesn't "stand on it's own" is because it is the very bringing together of different pieces of an extended Universe, that you would have to see the past movies to get, and the reason A Quiet Place stands on it's own, is because it's a friking stand-alone film with no forethought in previous movies, it doesn't need to be cohesive with anything but itself.
    And the thing about Peter Parker's classmates all being different races and creeds, well he literally lives in NYC.

    Will people stop complaining about Star Lord being out of character because it shows a lack of knowledge about how this movie was made and how Guardians 2 build his character. With guardians 2 when he finds out about Ego killing his mom he attacks him which shows he doesn’t handle loss well so when he’s looking for gamora and being a jerk it makes sense and when he finds out Gamora is dead it makes total sense for what he did. Also James Gunn wrote the stuff for the guardians in infinity war so Star Lord was in character he wasn’t changed at all but a different side was shown more

    When you think about the whole movie is just the heroes trying to stop thanos and failing over and over, but the main reason I liked the film was because of thanos's motivations and how we saw his emotional side. Thanos was really the main character of the movie.

    The movie isn’t supposed to stand alone. The entire point of the MCU is that they all connect with each other. As a culmination of the past ten years, this movie succeeded. In leaps and bounds. You cannot judge it by its stand alone worth. It’s not meant to be consumed as such.

    I think this movie did an incredible job of what it was trying to do. It’s like the season finale of the Marvel Universe. Of course the season finale doesn’t stand on its own - that’s not its purpose. Honestly I think that it was incredible how they kept my attention with SO MANY different heroes throughout the movie. They don’t have to make us like the characters in this movie because we’ve already made up our mind about these characters in their own movies. I absolutely love most of your content crowder and have been following you on TVclip/podcast for a couple years now but think this review is pretty shallow 😐 Still love you guys though 😎
