Remember when x-men became a movie? And we all thought it was a actually pretty good? After we grew up and were resigned we'd never get more then cartoons or crappy movies like spawn?
Man, those X movies have been hard to watch. They've all got some nice points, but mostly just reflect the convoluted incestuous soap opera bullshit that was the 90s X comics. No one's happy, and they're all struggling with internal shit most of the time, that it makes Ang Lee's slideshow cloud fight between Hulk and his father look solid.

The trailer for the new X-Men and Dark Phoenix looks terrible.

I think if Marvel had all their properties, we'd get a Wolverine/Hulk fight, some Wendigo action, and possibly even Alpha Flight. :D Hell, maybe even Longshot and the Mojoverse.
And they'd probably go with Nightcrawler and Kitty Pryde on their dimension and time-jumping adventures, rather than the group therapy sessions, interrupted by occasional brief action, of the actual movie franchise.

That trailer looks as bad as x-men 3.. I really don't get why they've done that.

Wolverine / hulk wasn't too interesting for me.. Give me Patch and mr Fixit (wolverine after fall of the mutants and grey intelligent mean hulk) in madripoor.

X-men brood would be a great movie.

I'm actually curious about the new mutants.

X-tinction agenda would be high on my list, as would x-cutioners song.

And please finally give me a proper doctor Doom.

My current Dr Doom theory is that he wrote and directed all of the Fantastic 4 films.
There’s more than one way to destroy your enemy...

As nice an idea as this is, the idea of Disney having MORE properties to dominate the box office is a worse proposition to me. I tried to see a film today and it was STILL 15 showings of endgame and one or maybe two of every other film. One of those other films was Captain Marvel.

I remember a time when they said cinema was dead. Why would anyone want to go out and pay when they could watch it at home? they said. Then Star Wars came out. Today I can see a trailer and think. 'That's worth seeing on a big screen' ... or not. It's a pity all the films are made by the same company but at least films are being made. They may be plundering a single source of stories but as a source at least Marvel is diverse and insiteful (even if the cinema tries to quash diversity and insite at times).

The Man Who Killed Hitler and Then the Bigfoot ... 8/10

Sam Elliott plays a guy who kills Hitler and then, later in life, Bigfoot. It's a thoughtfully paced film that gives its ideas and characters, the few there are, plenty of room to breathe. There isn't a lot of dialogue or exposition. You have to kind of fill in the holes based on assumptions that are hinted at -- kind of like real life -- but the core story elements are fleshed out well enough.

It seems to be a polarizing film -- you seem to either love it or hate it. A lot of those who hate it seem to dislike the fact that, given the title, it takes itself too seriously and doesn't give into the joke the title implies. I enjoyed the seriousness of the film.

EDIT: I would also add that I think it helps going into this movie with as little knowledge about it as possible. The title tells you everything you need to know, really.

Not a film but the first part of a HBO/Sky mini series called Chernobyl. It's a drama based on the real events of the disaster. The acting to the atomosphear is brilliant and I can't wait for the next episode to air next week.

The last film I watched was the animated Spider-Man film called "SpiderMan, into the Spider-verse". After seeing the trailers for this film, I thought it was going to be really unappealing and was going to change SpiderMan into some left/liberal version and be filled with political agenda, like we are seeing in so many films and TV shows. Boy was I really wrong about that. It was a breath of fresh air and was just a great story with a totally new (to me) concept. After finishing it, I was glad to know that a second film is confirmed and there is going to be a TV Show spin off, which will be on Disney's streaming platform.

Assassination Nation
8/10
Set in Salem (never going to end well, is it?:D) and centred initially around a high school clique and then the town as a whole.
It looks at what would happen if people’s private online content - including texts, emails, photos etc - was shared with everyone - the basic premise being the assertion that “10% of people are cruel. 10% of people are kind and 80% can be swayed either way”
A satirical commentary on society mixed with huge amounts of violence and epic-Japanese-horror-level-gore ensue.
Fun, shocking and thought provoking in equal measure.
