Yes. Yes. Yes.
Lighten up pal. Life's boring if you pretend it's not meant to be enjoyed.
seems to the general response to most trailers on here anyway.
and I like Chris Pratt, so interested in seeing this.
Looks like they've got explosions and songs and wrestlers to distract people from the fact there's not really a film there?
Badass raccoon thing, I just don't know why - surely it's this sort of stuff that made comic books niche in the first place? But it's obviously a moneyspinner, just don't get how this sort of thing ever became mainstream. Nah.
Would rather see a trashy horror or something. Soz.
there probably will be a plot, but yeah this is the big "omg" trailer.
the trailer roadmap":
teaser 1 - a bit of a teaser, first look
trailer 1 - action explosions OMG
trailer 2 - plot, action, characters
trailer 3 - mix of 2 and 3, for cinemas
they're a bunch of characters who have to team up to save the world or something.
This looks awesome and I think it might be the one where Marvel actually get to do a half-decent script, because I doubt they will really exist in any other Avengers film. So, they haven't got to think how will A fit in with B?
From the scenes that Batista's been in, his fighting looks fairly good. I thought he might just throw in the wrestling moves and that's it.
Only thing I'm not totally sure on is Bradley Cooper's voice as Rocket, but that's minor and it might be fine when the film actually comes out.
Do you think it looks a little like Serenity?
Although closer to Whedon's disowned template in Alien: Resurrection, maybe.
I was a bit surprised by this trailer. I'd thought it was a film aimed totally at the kids' market Disney had, going by the small posters I'd seen and the name. As in, I was expecting a fully animated feature.
Interesting that Zoe Saldana is now playing a green skinned alien.
Ahh, until I saw the first trailer, I had never heard of it before.
Talking of Disney, I can imagine there will be tonnes of toys from this.
Karen Gillan (Dr. Who) is playing a blue skinned alien. I think there may be a battle between them, which hopefully will be epic.
that would obviously have been brilliant.
Super hero films and that. Looks alright to be honest, but doesn't light my lemon.
but can never really commit to it.
Comic book equivalent of Top Gear Magazine
to get unnecessarily defensive over?
the set pieces look great the characters look interesting and the excerpts from the script sounds pretty slick. Bunch of negative nancy's up in here.
the kind of film you get your 3D Glasses out for and buy a fuck off tub of popcorn and a fuck off big pot of soda and just go bonkers. Who needs drugs when you have popcorn filx
At the same time as watching a better film.
you could even take drugs before watching it for that matter
Just watched the trailer for the first time - looks painfully unfunny. Suspect the trailer may be exaggerating this, but it felt like it was trying too hard with the (cliched) witty dialogue, most of which fell flat for me.
that it's pretty fucken gr8
but seeing as this looks like a cross between The Fifth Element and Firefly, I'll forgive them
DiS in "I'm too cool and indie to like a sci fi/superhero blockbuster and must instead stay home and masturbate to my twenty-sixth viewing of whatever dullfest Woody 'paedo' Allen has shat out this year while discussing how deep its insights are into sexual politics" shocker.
Yeah, I'm looking forward to this. While there have been a few average ones, Marvel Studios has yet to put out a film that wasn't at the very least hugely entertaining.
what's your point?
woody allen is shit and this might be shit too
stop being needlessly defensive about A FILM
"Marvel Studios has yet to put out a film that wasn't at the very least hugely entertaining"
spider man 3
x-men: wolverine edition(s)
If onlu you'd said The Incredible Hulk.
Is it not possible to find some of the Marvel Studios films entertaining, but others such as this one unappealing?
shit films like this are aimed at thick people to be honest. i think no art made on this scale can be good. it's just not punk at all
karen gillan and vin diesel and zoe saldana and chris pratt are good though. and it's got good reviews? doesn't look good though
chris pratt <3
where his character masquerades as Bert Macklin, FBI
DiS would explode.
One bit had me giggling for about three minutes. Reminded me of the Fifth Element but not as fabulous.
A shoddy two line review from a man whose opinions on film I don't fully trust?
Where's Sheeldz with some OTT gushing paragraphs?
You seem a bit pro-Hollywood, that's all.
And all the best picture nominees this year WERE good, look at them
12 Years a Slave
The Wolf of Wall Street
Dallas Buyers Club
Not all great and some were really overrated but they're all pretty solid, which is rare.
Shall I post my top 10 films? WOULD THAT HELP?
Here's some of all time dogs
Les Enfants du Paradis
Lawrence of Arabia
Kind Hearts and Coronets
The Red Shoes
To Be or Not To Be
From Russia with Love
The Lives of Others
Not sure I can stomach Allen now he's clearly Yewtree.
i watched before midnight the other night after before sunset being one of my favourite films
i'll rank them here below please read on for rankings
before sunset > before midnight > before sunrise
can't remember why i didn't see it at the cinema
Although, Captain Philips has Tom Hanks in so I'm pretty suspect about this. And Her is a bit meh.
i am firmly into "I'll Catch It On Download / Streaming" territory now.
You still waiting, yeah? :(
Chris Pratt is becoming a big star, and that's great. It's a shame the villains feel so thinly sketched though (seems to be the case with all these Marvel films, Loki apart. Hopefully Ultron can buck the trend next year).
And best post-credits sequence in one of these films since the shawarma place in The Avengers.
Think some people are understandably skipping the Thor films as the silly end of the franchise, but they're really missing something in loki.
Had a real Serenity/Firefly feel to it (was Whedon involved? Some of the dialogue was very much is style in places, especially when they were discussing the 12% plan).
Everyone in it was good, especially Chris Pratt, Bradley Cooper and Michael Rooker (he seemed to be having loads of fun, proper hamming it up).
Didn't realise the blue roboty one wasn't cgi! Hell of a makeup job.
Bloody love Chris Pratt and all. Seems like a real mensch irl too.
I enjoyed it quite a bit. Made me laugh a lot and was well done, with likeable characters and a good script. Though it is starting to get to the point where about half of the marvel films have the same plot: Good guys acquire mcguffin, have to stop bad guys getting it. Bad guys get it. Big Battle. Good Guys win.
which was much tighter up to that point.
Except it now seems every climax involves a battle in the air and some massive ship falling out of the sky. At least mix up the settings a bit!
Very light, lots of running about, big bangs, good one liners, kind of forgettable but fun while you watch it.
Enjoyed Pratt doing his stuff. He's got about five years grace before he turns into Jack Black.
Who gives a shit if the plot structure has been done before when you've got one-liners like:
"Hope she hasn't got a blacklight, this ship would look like a Jackson Pollock painting...."
Fucking hilarious. Favourite Marvel/Woody Allen film <3
great fun, good characters, great set pieces (really liked the prison bit), really funny. Rocket and Groot <3
the action sequences were all pretty much on point, Ronan is an excellent villian and there were some great heartwarming moments too. Should be interesting to see if they pop up in any of the other MCU films since the narrative seems almost entirely different from the original comics.
