    Caught Spider-Man homecoming yesterday. This will be the first time I am all caught up on MCU movies before an Avengers movie comes out.

    Spider-Man was pretty good. I liked how it was a little different from most "origin" stories. Had some really good lines in it, and the PSA commercials with Cap were hilarious.

    Watched Blade Runner 2049 last night. Loved it. Still prefer the original but it was still a pretty good movie.

    Watching 2049 really makes me want to watch the original again. I'm glad I own both of them though.

    I would put Guardians in the number 1 spot. I can re-watch that movie 100s of times and still enjoy it each time.

    You should watch the mini movies that tie the two stories together. They can be found in the bonus material on 2049.
    I loved the new Blade Runner, its a perfect continuation of the original. The people who made it were very much honoring the original work, to the point that some of the original film's staff was used on 2049. I think a re-watch will help after you watch the 1st movie along with the short films .

    A highly underrated recent movie is "Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets", I believe the guy who directed "The 5th Element" made it, very well done.

    My wife absolutely loved it too, turns out she is as big a Sci-Fi fan as I am. We picked up "The Last Jedi" a few nights ago, another home run! lol.

    We watched that a couple weeks ago. It was a good movie.

    I wanted to see that but the Rotten Tomatoes ratings made my shy away from it. Nice to know you guys liked it. Another movie I want to see is The Dark Tower. Excellent book series by Stephen King but again, shitty reviews.

    The really departed from what I understand.
    Like Stan Lee said about the Marvel movies doe, “retcon a bitch yo, you ain’t realize we’ve rewritten Wolverine 17 times, enjoy the movie for what it is”

    I have never bought tickets for any movie in advance, but did for Avengers. I checked my local theater and it actually had a lot of show times sold out so scooped my tickets to see it Saturday the 28th
