    Great scenes in disappointing movies

    Personally I loved Dark Knight. Begins was OK, I vaguely remember it as a nicely shot generic action movie more than anything else. Rises was full of absolutely ridiculous leaps of logic from the moment the entire cities Keystone cops were locked in a closet for a year and a half. Bane was awesome though. Liked him loads.

    Plus half a dozen shots in the Dark Knight Rises. But narratively the film dropped off a cliff half way through.

    No ones gone for weaponising hyperspace? Visually beautiful but TLJ was easily the most disappointed I've ever been in a films story. Ironically the last time I was that angry by a film was Watchmen. I seem to remember that the credits were outsourced which (imo) is why they were the best bit in the film. Looked brilliant but the end was so far away from the source I was furious walking out of the cinema. Cars 2 has amazing sequences (Japan especially) but oh my goodness it's Pixar's worst.

    SOLO: A Star Wars Story

    I wouldn't neg you for it, nor did the iron bit offend me - but I similarly can't remotely comprehend how you like Last Jedi. (Makes me want to see Solo more now... :)) not the correct thread for it but definitely beaten by all SW films bar Clones and Sith (which are also complete train wrecks). Haven't seen Solo though. Want to, but have had a mad few months with no cinema time happening. Looking forward to being able to go through the spoilers in the thread. Still convinced that Visually, again only from the trailers, solo does seem to have nailed the feeling of the universe. Just need them to release the damn blu Ray dagnabbit. This and Justice League I'd love to see a mega monty making of. (much more, way much more, than I'd ever like to see Last Jedi again.... ;))

    Kylo: oh my gods you killed Phasma. Hux: you rebel scum. I could see that.

    Star Wars Episode IX (December 2019)

    EPIX is an awesome name. If Rian was directing it the internet would explode (and dieing in a q waiting for it would probably be a mercy lolol). Bringing Lando back makes all sorts of sense. Wonder if they'd been thinking it before of after his turn in Solo?

    This. Nunb, Bib Fortuna, Fett, Dengar, 4Lom and so on were amazing characters. Served the plot. Nothing more. Rose and Holdo (and Phasma to an extent) looked cool but had so little story and motivation to back up their frequently stupid actions that they generally spoiled the film for me. Even Max was better than them and she was a completely rubbish character.

    Star Wars: The Last Jedi - December 2017

    Yes to this... But tbh Force Awoke had only just the right side of suspended disbelief. (I didn't like Rey but thought the film just hung together enough). Last Jedi I didn't feel like I got anyone's rationale, Rey mostly.

    Still. The film sells that he realises he would fail first time if he hadn't trusted. On the Rey thing I was completely unsold that she would be able to pilot the Falcon first time. I know she shouted that she was a pilot but why was she? A kid stranded on a planet who scrounges for scraps also gets free pilot training every weds between 3.30 and 4?

    Star Wars: The Last Jedi - December 2017

    To be fair though Luke also has his training path throughout the three films. Empire especially is about the hard slog of him learning how to harness his powers and he makes plenty of missteps along the way. Rey, by comparison, does pick it all up ridiculously easy and with little to no narrative sense. Apart from the similarities to ANH that was my main issue with TFA and Last Jedi to an extent. Just don't find Rey that likeable really.

    Ghostbusters (2016)

    Haven't seen Spy will check it out. As for female led films whice aren't based around an inherent sex sells platform I'm sure there are some but they ain't the norm. I don't think a bad film should be praised, no. I just think the level of vitriol which is poured out on Ghostbusters is nowhere near in line with the quality of the film. Apart from the excellence of the cast I'd say that Ghostbusters 2 was a less good part of the series than 2016's one yet no one takes a pop at that. Anyhow I'm not standing up for Answer the call (ugh) being a brilliant film. I just find it interesting that it's so widely panned.

    Ghostbusters (2016)

    True.... Shame though. I can think of far worse films than Ghostbusters that get little to no attention. I do also think there's a rich vein of underlying mysogony in various social media networks that fed into the negativity.. Given the hatred I was surprised how much I liked the film when I finally saw it.

    Also: Ernie Hudson should sue the makers of the original films trailer. Bah.

    Ghostbusters (2016)

    I didn't hate the film, and I probably laughed as much as I did in GB2 (which I found more disappointing than likeable). I really don't get why everyone's so fashionably down on this film. For the most part it was ok. Not a patch on the original but I don't see people slagging off the remake of Total Recall years later for example. My daughter loved it. And it's not like there are that many female led action movies. So the anti crowd did a disservice to any likelihood of things getting beter On that front

    I don’t disagree with what you’re saying....but I think I could write an equally long post picking holes in each part you’be listed. Personally I thought Holdo acted like she had no plan, not just one that she wouldn’t share with Poe. Poe was wasted dramatically following the bombing run. Snoke was wasted. You can’t build up on multiple points in a film and then say unimportant, move on, in most cases. Aspects of the film I kind of liked. Luke’s battle I Iiked but, by that point, Rian had let the audience down so much it wasn’t earned imo. Regardless. Glad you liked it. Just don’t think it was as good as you say.
