Ten years later, this film still rules:
Thanos' "Snap" In AVENGERS: INFINITY WAR Now Has An Official Name For AVENGERS 4
Saw some people on Twitter say that "decimation" is a bad name 'cause it historically meant 1/10th, lol. I like the name, but I also appreciate that level of pedantic semantics.
I love her so much for this film. I listened to this before watching the movie and it made it so much more enjoyable.
Yeah, I think Marvel might have been trying to give a nod to the House of M story (hopefully we still get it in the MCU at some point) and didn't really pay attention to the historical meaning.
I recently found out that Lexi was part of a hooligan (soccer firm) gang when she was younger and that's actually kind of BA. Not in the sense that there might have been violence over soccer but that she could handle that. Tough as nails.
So out of all the MCU movies I’ve seen Spider-man and the first Avengers..
I saw Iron Man when it first came out but don’t remember anything about it.
I don’t go back to work until next Wednesday so I’m about to work my way through the entire list. Starting with Captain America. This should be fun.
She is ridiculously BA. No question. This is from her wiki page -->
"Alexander began studying martial arts, specifically judo, when she was 8 years old. At 14, she switched to Shotokan karate. She has a third-degree black belt in karate.
Alexander excelled at kickboxing, where after two years in the sport, she joined the German National Team. She won the German point fighting championships four times and the European championships two times.
In 1994, at the age of 19, Alexander became the World Kickboxing Association world champion in karate-point fighting in Atlantic City."
Green Street Hooligans is an absolutely awesome movie. Punisher: War Zone is not my favorite kind of movie as I don't really like The Punisher all that much as a character, but strikes me as exactly what a Punisher movie should be.
I love Green Street.
Green Street Hooligans is one of my faves
Looks like the snap eventually got Caps beard
Hawkeye as Ronin!
May 2021 release. Yes!
DOCTOR STRANGE 2 Officially A Go At Marvel As Scott Derrickson Finalizes Deal To Direct
Niiice! Another visual effects nom for marvel!
Hopefully even more bizarre being that they held back on the first film
One Of The Directors Approached For BLACK WIDOW Slams Marvel Studios And Its Approach To Filmmaking
I have absolutely no idea what she meant when she said the music in Marvel films suck. Guardians, all three Captain America films, Black Panther, The Avengers, and Infinity War have good music. Doctor Strange has a decent soundtrack that’s at least enjoyable in the film.
I wonder if there was a misunderstanding. Based on comments other directors have made, and how consistent their approach to bigger effects-heavy action generally is across films... I bet they say not to worry about the action to most people they hire.
There's plenty of sexism to confront. And, to be honest, I wouldn't be surprised if that's evident in who they get to work on action sequences. But, I think they also like sticking to their well oiled machine when it comes to those CGI sequences that she's clearly not a fan of anyways. Which, that's its own conversation.
As for the music, that's really not a new topic or one w/out merit, lol. They have more strong work than is often acknowledged, but they also have a lot of super safe, indistinct work. And, they often bury their good work instead of letting it shine. There's a good YouTube video out there that's harsher than I'd be, but that does a great job dissecting this. One of the strong suits of Infinity War, both marketing & film, is that it highlighted the Avengers theme better than often happens.
Btw, listing good uses of music & not mentioning Ragnarok is a crime. Outside the powerful use of "Immigrant Song," the actual score of the film is a delight. Possibly the studio's best?
I forgot about Ragnorak. That soundtrack is pretty good and I would put it with the list above.
That's the one. I personally think it exaggerates a little at times, but it's filled with really good observations. And, knowing that the Russos talk about Honest Trailers when making films, I wouldn't be surprised if they also are familiar with Every Frame a Painting & intentionally put the Avengers theme in the forefront of Infinity War in response to this video.
I don't think it'll happen, but I want Endgame to bring back a couple more past pieces of score. Mainly, I'd love to hear the "Captain America March" from The First Avenger. But, if it can be worked in organically, I'd also love to hear the title theme from Thor: Ragnarok.
(Thinking about it right now, I can't think of any Iron Man theme, lol. So, there you go, I guess.)
