    Days Gone - Sons of Anarchy x Last of Us

    Really hope this doesn't translate to Sony closing the studio - they have past form for shutting down studios that deliver clunkers, don't they?
  2. I was convinced that Pepper would don the Rescue armour and fly into space to save Tony. Her randomly using the armour to get busy in a full-on war-zone was a bit weird.
  3. Quite happy that I can now say that I've achieved a Thor bod.
  4. Pretty sure she was at the premiere as well.
  5. Emaciated angry Tony at the start was really intense. A million miles away from the guy we saw in the Iron Man trilogy.
  6. I was amazed at the amount of gigantic actors that they got in for tiny bit parts. Natalie Portman who didn't want anything more to do with Marvel. Robert Redford arguing over a suitcase. Michelle Pfeiffer and Angela Bassett literally just standing there. Also, 70's Stan Lee was perfection.

    When Called Thor I thought I'd died and gone to heaven. Perfect.

    Holy absolute fuck. Easily better than Infinity War.

    My 11th hour dark horse prediction is a stand-off between Squirrel Girl and Darth Vader wielding Galvatron in cannon mode. Winner gets a free go of Doctor Strange's cloak of levitation.
  10. In the comics, he definitely is. Regardless, the bigness of his deal isn't really relevant.
  11. The story so far, spoilered for length: 19. Avengers: Infinity War: This is the most comic book film ever - it has insanely heightened stakes and storyline, makes absolutely no attempt to be self-contained and assumes a foreknowledge of the vast storylines that have come before it. A lot of people would say that these are negatives, but certainly not me. Thanos is just a jaw-dropping achievement, in terms of technology, acting and writing. The film has a very brisk pace indeed, and a lot of moving parts, but never descends into the incoherence of AoU. The CGI and effects are stunning throughout, with a few notable exceptions. Doctor Strange is my personal MVP - his fight sequence with Thanos is perfect. I actually shouted in the cinema when a long-standing, but previously-assumed-to-be-unlikely theory regarding the reappearance of a certain character turned out to be on the money. This film shows the mass audience what comic book fans have always seen on the page. 10/10

    Don't go near the Irish Times review, it's spoilery as fuck.

    I'm not going to ingest any fluids after 4pm, so I'm nice and dehydrated and unlikely to need a pee by the time the film starts. Just got a mail from my cinema telling me to turn up early due to the high numbers of people expected.
  14. Civil War is the best of the lot in my book. Just watched Infinity. Holy fuck, what a film. Seeing Endgame tomorrow night and I couldn't be more hyped.
