    I really wish someone with real skills like the people who did the Fury Road Mario Kart edit would do an edit to make Furiosa into Ghost Rider.

    I still don't really get what is so spectacular about the action in Winter Soldier

    Maybe my ability to judge that stuff is broken

    But it did not stand out to me. It was good, but no better or worse than any Marvel movie

    That street fight was mental good

    the choreography was incredible

    the street fight was good I don't think it was "mental good" or "the best western choreography that has graced the silver screen"

    AoU had some rad action stuff.

    The opening fight and the final stand against Ultron were both incredibly fun sequences with lots of neat cuts to and from different heroes and awesome double techs.

    Tony vs. Hulk was awesome.

    And everything else was peppered with moments that were cool or funny or both.

    I'm a sucker for team-up moves and group action shots.

    Basically every time it happens in either Avengers movie I eat that shit up.

    the handfighting between cap and batroc and cap and bucky is pretty good; other than that, meh

    I also liked how they showed falcon getting pretty much demolished by more experienced dudes; it was nice to not have the quasi-protagonist just immediately turn into a hth expert

    the thing that's neat about the fights in winter soldier, from a western cinematography standpoint, is that they use fairly long cuts. There are some places where it looks like they might have cheated a bit, but you have to watch pretty closely and even then they usually stitch two long-ish sequences together.

    I'm glad that directors are starting to realize how transparent the whole bourne identity-style of filming fight scenes really is

    Winter Soldier had amazing action scenes.

    The first Cap had a couple good bits. The CG fight at the end of Iron Man 2 was OK. And that's about it as far as Marvel movies go.

    Both the dialogue and the action sequences in AoU felt like they were trying too hard to squeeze in as many "one-liners" as possible

    Winter Soldier had a couple of action scenes with great, tight choreo

    It wasn't all great, though

    That and Daredevil are the only things I can think of in the MCU with standout action

  • Eat it You Nasty Pig.Eat it You Nasty Pig. tell homeland security 'we are the bomb'Registered User regular
    the supercut in avengers during the manhattan fight is amazing, even though it's obviously a lot of CGI

    in AoU I thought the opening was pretty great, and the bit where they're chasing the truck was pretty good. The last fight scene(s) was unfortunately kind of an anticlimax

    Yes, the longer shots and less shaky cams are good. But I also love how they portrayed Cap in terms of skills and strength. The opening boat scene is so good, along with the highway fight after Sitwell got tossed out of the car, and the elevator scene.

    I don't have a CGI allergy (unless it's realy bad CGI) so I imagine that means I don't have as dour an opinion on superhero action as a lot of people. One of my favorite fights is still Abomination vs Hulk. It might just be because I never got to the point where I was "ewwww, cartoons" so watching action scenes of things that never existed in real life isn't the sightest issue for me, so long as it looks good.

    The MCU really needs some better/more threatening villains.

    Other than the fact that the fights in Winter Soldier and Daredevil had great choreography was that the heroes were fighting against opponents who were able to stand up against them. The heroes had to struggle, they got tired, they got hurt, there was a real sense that they might lose, and they had to be adaptive and creative to beat the villains. As fun as the fights in Avengers looked, they were pretty much fighting a bunch weak disposable soldiers, and there was never really any sense of danger.

    Man talking about it I went and watched the fight on youtube.



    Cap did a flying knee on Bucky! It's mathematically proven that a movie with a flying knee is better than one without.

    Then he loses his knife and is all "who the fuck carries just one knife?" And pulls another

    One thing I will say for TWS is that it gave Cap a skill boost that carried over into AoU, so I appreciate that.

    - Fixed a weird door.

    Did anyone read Years of Future Past this week?

    I found it to be underwhelming, but I enjoyed the art and the setting so much that I'll keep reading. I really loved A-Force, but I remember you all had a lot of complaints about it. Years of Future Past was very similarly written and structured, and I imagine that my feelings about it mirror the A-Force opinions around here.

    The funny thing about Bourne-style fight scenes is that when you look at the making-ofs, they have good choreography in there which is lost with all the rapid cuts.

    I love that he does the spinning kick, and then does the flying knee

    But my favourite single move in the whole movie is probably when he boots that guy off the boat

    mostly because I remember seeing that in the theatre and it instantly just set the movie's action tone up beautifully

    I started reading Immortal Iron Fist before work this morning on Marvel Unlimited.

    It's really good, but it has some issues wrt The Iron Fist being The Whitest Dude and also female characters. I need to finish it before I pass final judgement, though.
