I've got to admit F13 movie threads irritate the fuck out of me as the monocle wearing afficionados surgically remove any fun they detect. Oh ho ho ho. Reallllly?

By all means, if some of you guys want to reduce all conversation about movies down to "Fun", you've got some bright futures ahead of you writing review blurbs for Shaq's movies once he gets his acting career going again.

Yes, but that was the aforementioned one guy who didn't like the movie saying that and everybody else disagreeing....

It’s one thing to argue why you didn’t like something. It’s another thing if you basically use the lingo of the YouTube diversity hate squad in your argument.

Mary Sue gets thrown around so often nowadays by the sort of YouTuber and shitposter who also talks about Feminazis, SJWs and liberal agendas that I get extremely wary every time terms like this get used in an argument.

„I don’t like this“ I don’t mind. „YouTube told me I shouldn’t like this because reasons“ is a different matter though.

They use the phrase incorrectly which is annoying on its own.

Thor nearly killed Thanos solo and we're supposed to worry that he'll be ineffectual against Thanos in the next movie and need CM to beat him?  Ohhhhh, I see.

It doesn't look all that hard to beat Thanos if your powers come from an infinity stone. Wanda was able to hold him off and destroy a gem at the same time. There's no telling what she could have done if she had just concentrated on kicking Thanos' ass.

All this pre emptive whining about CM in A:E (given that we don't even know who will be the big bad in A:E) is just dumb.

Yup, I don't get the power level conversation. She did nothing Thor couldn't have done.

It is kind of funny that Kevin Feige has been saying she is the strongest character in the MCU when you have Thor and the Scarlet Witch. I mean, she held off a nearly full power Thanos with one hand while utterly distracted.

Boy you sure proved the "monocle aficionados" part wrong.

Wait.  Strike that.  Reverse it.

That's a lot of words to say that you don't understand what art criticism is about.

I've forgotten what was said about the Kree in the first Guardians movie but it seems to me that the time between Capt. Marvel and Guardians could have seen Carol absolute decimate the Kree. There was no mention of the Nova Corps in Capt. Marvel, which leads me to believe that perhaps she had some hand in its creation, or at least that she could have. Plus, if the Kree were getting their shit kicked by her, maybe that's what turned Ronan the Accuser from his normal green armored self to the death-obsessed emo goth he was in Guardians.

You say that like there's no way to judge the quality of something like Batman v Superman against something like Into the Spider-verse.

Not expecting more from movies is how you get more shit movies. Comic book movies, Oscar-bait, art-house indie films. You can, and should, try to understand them.

Yeah I was thinking that. The Kree remnants are clearly still around and working with Ronan and it's interesting that you've essentially got the Xandarian Worldmind and the Kree Supreme Intelligence with neither making reference to the other. My best guess would be Carol helped the Nova Corps in kicking the Kree's asses. The fact that they were happily decimating worlds in their sphere of influence that had Skrulls on them, I'm guessing, proved to be a little too much. If Carol sufficiently weakened them then I could see the Kree empire signing a peace treaty with the Nova Corps to prevent war where they agreed to hand over the militant factions (such as the Accusers) and promise to actually treat worlds within the Kree empire with rights, etc.

It was clear in GotG that the Nova Corps had imposed some kind of peace treaty on the Kree and that Ronan and his boys were on the run for something. That makes as much sense as anything else but the idea of duelling AI led civilisations is a cool concept.

Ronan had become a renegade around the time of GotG due to disagreeing with the peace treaty with Xandar. Ronan's goal was basically Xandarian genocide.

Daleks and Movellans tried it.  It was a stalemate.

It was also a classic Star Trek episode where people reported in to get vaporized because a computer decided they died in an attack. Though in that case, the humans wanted the AI running the wars so they didn't have to deal with it anymore. If memory serves Kirk "solved" the problem by blowing up both computers and forcing them to kill each other the old fashioned way.
