It ought to be shared by more intelligent people.

Seriously, I've seen pretty much all of them and the majority are objectively terrible. I'm convinced people just pretend they're great because they don't want to admit to wasting their money.

Or, y'know, it's because people actually enjoy them and you just have different taste.

I know, what an absurd concept, right?

There has yet to be a perfect movie studio lineup of CBMs.

They all have some pretty significant flaws or weaknesses (and yes, some accounting for taste).

Marvel's strength has been and will continue to be consistency and fan loyalty. And they earned that loyalty, for the most part. They say they're gonna do something, and by Gamora, they do. I might take issue with their tone and humor (looking at YOU, Thor trilogy!), but they know how to run a cinematic universe.

We're getting Black Panther, Captain Marvel, and Ant-Man movies, guys. Frickin' Ant-Man. Who thought that'd be one of my favorite MCU movies? And Captain America became a cinematic badass? Marvel might've stumbled with a few movies (again, looking at YOU, Thor trilogy!) but they're the kings of the board despite having started with the weakest IPs.

Ah, pretentious arrogant remarks and absolute belief in ones perfect taste and objectivity.
Cool story, bro!!

Gladly, people don't give a **** about such opinions and just enjoy things they deem good.

I disagree I think Nolan's Batman Trilogy was pretty damn perfect imo. But after that DC has gone hill
I also disagree I think Marvel has dropped the ball a few times. In regard to their movies and wouldn't call them consistent. For me Marvel dropped the ball big time with "Civil War"/ "Thorark ages"/"Iron-man 3"/ "Avengers: Age of Ultron"/"Captain America 2" All of these movies could have been way batter one way or another.
I think the real issue is DC is putting animated movies that are superior than there live action movies and Marvel really doesn't have any animated movies to compare to there live action movies. Basically in my opinion DC fans have a higher standard bc of the animated movies and Nolan's trilogy.Same thing happened to Sony with the Spider-man movies imo. Marvel movies have a lower standard bc they have never really put out movies before.
This is all my opinion and observations

I hope Disney buys out everything. I want a future where everything is owned by one company like a media empire like you see in Blade Runner or Demolition Man.

Remember how every restaurant was Pizza Hut?

Wrong. It was Taco Bell. And that would suck. That being said, Disney has deep pockets to get movies made and mostly stays out of the creative process of the directors and crew. They keep a loose leash and mostly let rhem do their thing without too much meddling. They know better than to mess with what works.

I love Cyberpunk. Comics, books, movies, and so on, it's all my jam. But I would very much prefer not living in a world like that.

I just realized something that now that Disney will very soon have the rights to the 20th Century FOX movie library. First of all my all-time favorite movie, The Sandlot, is celebrating its 25th anniversary this year. It sure makes me feel old.

https://www.thewrap.com/sandlot-25th-anniversary/

With the acquisition of 20th Century FOX from Disney happening there's a chance that might the movie become a part of their brand. It's ironic that this happened because they made of a Disney movie Bambi by calling the titular character "that wimpy dear.

PLEASE let it be true! As much as I loved Chiklis and Evans in the first two FF films, I'd love to see the MCU get a crack at the First Family of heroes, if only to wash the taste of that ghastly Floptastic Film out.

I didn't hate the first two FF movies but they were pretty flawed. I never saw the last one, but I would like to see someone make one who knows what they're doing.

Ehh he's actually kinda right. Because Europe is less familiar with Taco Bell, it was overdubbed with Pizza Hut over there.

I doubt Cubed saw that version though.
