Yeah. If superman had gotten caught like that he could have used his super strength to get out without anybody knowing it. Pa Kent got his foot caught behind a car. Nobody could see what it was caught on. They would have just seen Supes bend over and then he could have just ran away at a normal speed and he would have been fine.

Captain America: Civil War


A lot more enjoyable than I presumed it would be.

Didn't really like the motives of "the villain" though. Seemed a bit clichéd.

Just saw that too. The villain's motives were cliche, but the results weren't. I thought it was very good as well.

You'll probably hear a lot of "best comic movie ever" chatter over the next few days but I don't think it is.

It does, however, have some of the most impressive fight/action scenes I've ever seen.

Until then, assume that Superman 2 still reigns supreme!

Synder is a bit of a hit and miss Director. (Watchmen...I really wanted to like it...but overall sucked a bit) Man of Steel was pretty cool. Batman v Superman is dreadful apparently!

Captain America is the winner for recently released movies...

Yeah, Winter Soldier is probably the best comic movie of recent note, so it pleases me that Civil War is reviewing well.

I liked Man of Steel as well, but apparently it's shit!

Winter Soldier is my favorite comic book movie. I look forward to seeing Civil War soon.

I wasn't planning on seeing Captain America: Civil War, but I ended up getting to go to a free screening tonight and...wow! What a fun and well made movie.

I thought The First Avenger was alright and that Winter Soldier was better (although I honestly don't remember much of what happened in that one). I wasn't really impressed with either of the Avengers films though.

I definitely recommend checking Civil War out in the theater. I'd say it's on par with Mission Impossible: Rogue Nation.

Lady Dynamite, the new Netflix show starring Maria Bamford and created by Mitchell Hurwitz (Arrested Development) and Pam Brady (South Park), is pretty damn good. I finished up the first season earlier today and enjoyed it quite a bit. I'm not sure what they'll do with a second season, but I want to see it happen so watch this show damn it!

Interesting...always thought Arrested Development was one of the best TV shows to come out of the US.

Not sure if its out in OZ/NZ or US. But a film called Victoria (German) is awesome. All done in one 'shot' or so it claims... however if there are any cuts they hid them well in the edit!

I watched the first episode last night. It's weird and wacky. Definitely not "mainstream." Not really my thing either, but I see how it could gather a following. Thanks for the recommendation.

The first episode is a lot weirder and wackier than the rest. It's still pretty weird and wacky but the later episodes do calm down a bit.

Having watched the episode last night I actually read the AV Club interview with Bamford. It helped me understand the show a bit more: http://www.avclub.com/article/maria-bam ... ugs-237015

I ended up watching the BBC Sherlock episode 'The Abominable Bride' afterwards. I've really enjoyed that series and somehow missed this episode. Hopefully they continue with this series.

I have "Victoria"on my saved films to watch later list. I will move it up. I had read a bit about it and viewed the trailer. One of those films I figured I needed to be in the mood for.

Just watched the pilot of "The Preacher". Worth a look, a pretty good start with some cool characters.

Just watched Victoria and I concur earthrocker is was an excellent watch. At over two hours one take is an amazing achievement and the principle character rarely has the camera leave her.

I'm not sure I have ever seen a film that so captures how people go out and randomly interact with strangers on drug/alcohol fueled adventures. There is so much communication in that state that is not spoken and the actors do an amazing job with this. I would love to have watched a rehearsal for this movie.

Glad you liked it Liz! The acting, especially the two leads, was phenomenal to watch....

Apparently they shot the 2 hours 3 times across the weekend, obviously at night,.... and the Director chose the best one out of them :shock:

'Victoria' was definitely a trip. Sometimes boring, often uncomfortable, but quite an accomplishment...especially considering it was all one take.

Thanks for talking it up you two. I don't think I would have watched it otherwise.

FInally got around to watching Deadpool. Had it's moments, but ultimately a little flat and predictable for me. 6/10
