Oooh I liked it. And the remake of "heroes" by Bowie.

Cyborg - Ride ain't over yet
Aquaman - My man


Yeah that Heroes cover is pretty awesome.

Still not sure I'm going to see this over Thor: Ragnarok.

I'll generally watch any superhero movie, so, unless I hear from someone who saw it first that they fridge the Amazons (the only thing I've unreservedly loved from the DCEU) to fluff up one of Darkseid's minor flunkies who's been less relevant to the Darkseid family than Granny Goodness, I'll see this *and* Thor: Ragnarok.

Sovereign Court

Was it the Ted leo cover of Heroes? That's the best one and I don't much like that song.

Sovereign Court

Why not watch both?

Meh.

No-one said a word when the Amazon's went black hat and attacked everyone in Amazon's attack.

A word in favor of it? Or against it?

All I remember was people complaining about it, and the heroes who sided with them (was Supergirl one of them? I don't even remember...) against America being unforgivable and hoping they'd all die. It was a misogynist tire-fire, as these things tend to be.

And the complaints about the bees. :)

Can't wait to see Aqua-Bro in this.

Because I have a rule about how much I spend on movies in a year. I've already almost blown through my budget with GotG 2, Spider-man Homecoming and Wonder Woman.


Hmph. That's a tough choice Mr, Seitz. I think Thor: Ragnorak is almost certainly going to be good and funny, but think Justice League might have the potential to be great and meaningful. That said, given DC's tragic track record and whose directing it, I think it's equally likely to be an uneven, preachy mess of a film that tries to ape the first Avengers but fails spectacularly.

I say flip a coin.

Sovereign Court

y'all should look into that new movie service that lets you see all the movies you want at ten bucks a month.

Sovereign Court

Oh well, that's a pity.


Delightful,

I don't need a coin flip. When it comes to Thor, he's my #1 character. So Justice League will have to take a pass.

Pan,

I'm not sure I have the budget for even that.

Hama,

It can be...but we'll see later on in November.

Sovereign Court

I mean how much does it cost to see a movie there? Say 3D ticket and a large coke and popcorn?


35 dollars for all that.

I might have skimmmed over this (I was 100+ posts behind on this thread), but why are people assuming that the Amazon stuff occurs in modern day?

I assumed from the trailers that they would be part of a flashback and represent a previous visit to Earth by Steppenwolf. We know that a motherbox was left on earth thousands of years ago, so I assume the Amazons are part of that back story.

I like Whedon, but I would agree that Age of Ultron ultimately hasn't held up as well to repeat viewings as other MCU movies. I can pretty much watch Winter Soldier, Antman, and the GotG movies over and over, but Age of Ultron mostly feels like a rehash of the first Avengers. That said that was pretty much Whedon's last movie and one I don't think he himself was all that happy with (Interviews at the time just show him as burnt out from the MCU treadmill), so I am not sure how much that movie establishes precedent for Justice League.

That said, I don't really see how Snyder and Whedon are going to jell...they are directors without much of any similarities in style and approach, so I suspect this is going to be a chimeric mess.

Sovereign Court

Holy cow. WOW. That's a lot.

For one? Or is that with a date?

Cause around here it's like $14 for a full price 3D ticket. I can't imagine a coke and popcorn are $20.

I just bought 3 tickets for STAR WARS: THE LAST JEDI at at the Dolby Atoms theater in the AMC Empire 25 in Times Square.

They cost me $70.

If I'd bought tickets for a regular screening here in NYC at the same theater I'm STILL looking at almost $20 a ticket. A large popcorn and soda is about $14 - 15 .

So as someone who used to go to the movies several times a month, sometimes a week in his youth? I only go if it's something that I REALLY want to see.

Sovereign Court

Man, I took my sister to watch Kingsman a few days ago. It cost me 15$, two regular tickets a large coke and a big tub of popcorn.

Sovereign Court

Big cities cost more in the states. You can find deals like 5 buck Tuesdays, but yeah you can pay a lot especially for the 3D scam.

I am curious if the movie pass subscription would work for times square because it would be killer if it did. Problem is you cant buy advance tickets. It only works if you are onsite with phone via GPS.


I'm not sure Morgantown qualifies as a big city, but the only theaters we have are chains and yes a ticket runs me between 10-12 dollars and large popcorn and soda runs between 13-15 dollars. So...yeah.

It's even worse with 3D since those go between 15-16 dollars.

I think it's the Jacob Dillon cover


Nah I've heard the Jacob Dylan cover. That wasn't it.

That was $35 for three movies. It'd be a bit high for my area, but not outrageous in some places.

I'd be quite happy with that, if it turns out to be the case!

Yeah, Age of Ultron is close to my least favorite of the last batch of MCU movies (along with Iron Man 3, Incredible Hulk and the first two Thor movies, which were kind of 'meh' for me). But that first Avengers movie is right there near the top, with the Captain America movies and that first Iron Man movie!

They are very different in style, so yeah, this could be a funky ride, like that Suicide Squad movie that seemed to be trying to be two movies at once. (Granted, I didn't mind that, so who knows, maybe they'll thread that needle again for me!)

I'm not going into it needing to love it or needing to hate it, like some of the more extreme 'fans' (or 'haters') on the internet, who get far too much attention, IMO, so I'll just go with the flow.

Same for Thor: Ragnarok, which looks amazing from the trailers, but is following up on two lackluster Thor movies, and doubling down on an aspect that I like least, Thor being 'funny,' instead of an intimidating awesome god of war and thunder that even his fellow Avengers tread warily around.

At the end of the day, I liked and can (and have!) re-watch Green Lantern, and did not like and cannot plod through a re-watch of those Nolan Bat-films with Christian Bale, so I'm the anti-demographic for these movies, it seems. :)

It is 11 dollars where we are to see a first run movie here, which is why I go to the budget cinema (that, and a week after I watch it there I can pick it up on DVD).


Pathfinder Roleplaying Game Subscriber

Okay to see a movie on a "standard" screen is $16.29 at the AMC Empire 25. So three people = $48.87.

Tickets to the Lincoln Center IMAX theater shot up recently (as in this year) from something like $20 to $25.29. This used to be my go to theater for big event films, especially since the Zigfeild is gone. Now I avoid it like the plague. The screen and the projection are AMAZING ( I saw the awful MUMMY movie there in a screening. While the movie itself was BAD the projection of it was really good.) The biggest issue are the seats. Those seats are tight and cramped and not comfortable at all. I've seen enough movies there where I was able to suck up the crappy seats for $20. At $25 I'll give that money to another theater with soft, wide recliners.


In any case guys, I have limited budget with which to spurge AND still get Paizo stuff. So...this.

I'm expecting the tone and feel of this to be in line with the Guardians movies. I personally like them trending more towards the fantasy side of things, and would prefer that angle a bit more. But you can't blame them for trying for that sweet GotG cash.

I am actually okay with Helmsworth (sp?) going with a more humor approach. I actually think, based on those Thor shorts and Ghostbusters, he pulls off comedy far better than gravitas.

However, it's more an 'unintentional comedy' than a 'planned' comedy? If that makes any sense?


Wei,

Yeah it makes sense. Thor's comedy in this movie isn't "planned" it's more like "this would be kind of funny but it's off the cuff, not planned."

Some of Thor's comedy is definitely planned. They're largely setting this up as a Thor / Hulk buddy/roadtrip film. The fact that they're superheroes and the subsequent action doesn't change that the formula depends on banter and foils.

They know up front that people can't wait for the first conversation between Loki and Hulk after the last time, they know that the audience loves the Hulk/Thor alpha male pissing contest established in Avengers. The humor is definitely deliberate, but well crafted enough to appear incidental.


Okay fair. Mark.

Even so, it doesn't diminish the seriousness part of what's going on. That and the fact their villain is...well a villain. Hela has always been a favorite Thor villain of mine.


I got confused for a second their. Could of sworn I hit the justice league one not the thor one. Eh w/e I'll see em both.

Liberty's Edge

Agreed! These last few comments would be great - if they were in the Thor: Ragnarok thread ...

Maybe we can keep this thread about ... you know .. the Justice League movie? :)


Whoops! Sorry guys. ;)
