    As for Dark Phoenix, itíll still probably get released.
    Ive seen the trailer for it, it seems to have finished shooting and its slated for a june release, so this seems like an astute observation.

    Dark Phoenix had its latest test screening earlier this month and apparently it was a mess.

    I don't know what they put in the coke to make anyone think Sophie Turner could carry a movie, but Im assuming its a mess largely thanks to it being a dark phoenix movie where they have tried their best to minimise the dark phoenix's screen time.

    New Mutants somehow looks even worse, looks like that's going straight to Hulu.

    I'm actually torn on who's worse, Sophie Turner or Emilia Clarke?

    There was speculation that they might not release it due to what an utter mess it is and it could really hurt the franchise. It can't be any worse than Apocalypse and that's already done enough damage. It's bound to make money, regardless of quality.

    It's a bit shit that they may have bottled it again with Dark Phoenix. I thought Famke Janssen was great casting but they changed it all because they didn't think audiences would go for it. May have done the same thing here.

    I'm not that familiar with the Dark Phoenix saga but if it's that good of a story, Marvel may want to do it properly. Either that or they won't touch it for a decade or so.

    Speculation is that they want to just go with stand along Wolverine films to start off with. Will they cast a short, bulky guy? Jack Black to bulk up and get ripped? :)

    Dark Phoenix is, very basically, 'are you still done for assault if you're pissed?'.

    She gets access to her full powers, becomes a god, goes crazy and eats a bunch of planets, causing the death of billions. She gets sentenced to death by some space guys and let's herself get killed.

    Then, knowing it would be like resurrecting Hitler, they retcon the whole thing to her being posessed by an all powerful space bird and brought her back to life.

    The trailer manages to be both confusing and boring.

    It looks like the filler episode for a netfilx Xmen show.

    Actually looks like it could have been ok without Sophie Turner.

    Not so good?

    86% on RT based on 35 reviews?

    Ok. B- score considered fresh as is 3/5. Which is fine. Itís still mostly positive. Just not as good :)

    Edit: Or so good. Or something.

    Still don't really get how RT works. Seen 6/10 as a rotten and 2/5 as a fresh.


    Anyways I'll wait till word of mouth as the trailers haven't sold me.
  • Deleted user 5 March 2019 15:11:49
    I think it looks very dull. On paper I don't mind that it's just another Marvel formula origin story... But Brie Larson doesn't have any charisma in the trailers. She's so bland. Gal Gadot, by comparison, was full of life in Wonder Woman.

    Origin stories need not be as generic as they've become though. Spiderverse, from Sony, is an origin story and it's absolutely fantastic.

    Obviously Gearskin can compare both films as he's seen both Wonder Woman and Captain Marvel.

    Not even wonder woman, by the sounds of it
  • Deleted user 5 March 2019 15:30:22
    Pretty sure the consensus on Wonder Woman is that it was great and Gal Gadot was great.

    Maybe I'll look to confirm that.

    7.5 imdb.
    93% RT.
    $800 million at the BO.

    "Thrilling, earnest, and buoyed by Gal Gadot's charismatic performance, Wonder Woman succeeds in spectacular fashion."

    Just me then.

    I was unsure about Captain Marvelpants myself to be honest until I read that THE Kris Jenner endorses the movie. Now I'm on board.

    I didn't realise RT generated a consensus opinion for the entire sphere of human consciousness.

    Good coding.
