    So, that was pretty much the entire movie, yes?

    The Sentry, and specifically the tortuous retconning that swirled around him. He's been ignored long enough that it's almost like he never happened, but he bugged the shit out of me.

    Finally finished. It did improve about halfway through, but still never really rose above the level of adequate. Far too much time was spent on the corporate stuff, the action tended to be dull and badly choreographed and shot (the episode directed by Kevin Tancharoen was a notable exception), Finn Jones was totally miscast both in terms of his acting and his ability to fight, and the writing was very weak.
    However, it looked good, was generally an easy way to kill a couple of hours at a time, and if you had told me at the beginning that Ward would turn out to be the most interesting and three dimensional character in the series by orders of magnitude, I would have pointed and laughed at you, but here we are.
    Also, does Colleen Wing even OWN a pair of shoes?

    I doubt that is unintentional.

    Mary Poppins.

    I love this era of Batman, but I think it's really interesting that his reaction to Jason's death - becoming super grim, angry, "I don't need anyone's help", really just a huge asshole - which was presented as precisely the reason why it was so important that he bring Tim Drake on board, essentially became the default Batman characterization within a few years.

    If nothing else, they got the look right.
    I mean, there's no way to know until it actually airs, but I'm still giving it a shot.

    This drove home just how many movies I haven't gotten around to seeing in the past five or so years. I was also a little surprised at how many genre films I listed, though I probably shouldn't have been.

    Damn. RIP.

    Even if you discount the unfortunate "white guy goes to the East to learn Eastern things and becomes the best at all the Eastern things" motif (and so soon after Doctor Strange, which was really poor planning),my main thing is that the whole point of Iron Fist is that he's the greatest martial artist who ever martial arted, and if that's the case, the fight scenes in this should be fucking spectacular, and they just aren't. I'm not looking for another hallway fight or Luke marching through the community center, but these are just standard issue TV fight scenes that aren't even as good as some of what they've been able to do on Agents of SHIELD.
  12. Dan added a post in a topic The Defenders   

    Yeah, Iron Fist isn't great.
    It's not TERRIBLE, but it's nowhere near at the level of any of the other Marvel Netflix series.

    Wendee and I are actually gonna make things official.

    They used to fill the five-minute shortfall in the Danger Mouse slot with Bananaman. That was some wacky shit right there.

    It's gotten ridiculous.
    Grant Gustin is bloated with likability, so they've been able to wallpaper over the fact that Barry's really been kind of a dick this season.
