Before you do let me warn you. Kazinsky may have been the hottest guy but he was the dumbest character (aside from Bill becoming the vampire god), he was a faerie/vampire half breed. Yeah. Faerie vampire.

But he was a day walker because of it so whenever I watch Blade again I'll think about how Wesley Snipes must be a faerie vampire.

Has anyone seen Boyhood? The guys at RLM hated it, but most critics seem to love it.
I haven't seen it, but like most of Linklater's other films I'm guessing it's for people who enjoy Richard Linklater films. I'm fortunate enough to be one of those people, so I'm looking forward to it hitting BD.

I watched GotG.  It was good.  The villain was lame.

Yeah, they did mention that. Jay at least liked most of it, as he said he enjoys Linklater's films.

I saw Guardians of the Galaxy today.

Really overhyped. 4/10. My main issue was that it didn't follow the comics accurately, followed by the completely generic soundtrack consisting of "best of the oldies! 98.9!!!". Also, the characters were shallow with barely any backstory.

Regardless, still the best Marvel movie I've ever seen.

>generic sound track

But really, the comics mean jack shit. It makes no difference how loyal movies are to their source material, only how well they're constructed as movies.

That explains why Marvel hasn't made a good movie since well... ever.

Correction, Spiderman 3 was pretty good.

Well, one point in my first post still stands: it was the best Marvel movie I've ever seen.

I actually really liked it. It pains me because I couldn't find much to bitch about. Chris Pratt was great, like I suspected he would be, and Rocket was awesome.

The biggest issue, like others have stated, was the villain and the "chase the macguffin" plot (although this was lampshaded a few times, which I appreciated). The movie was so much fun that it was hard to care about the conventional storyline and shallow villain. I would have liked more Thanos screentime, but whatever. Knowhere was also a really cool setting, something you'd see out of Doctor Who or something.

I haven't seen Avengers or many Marvel movies recently, but isn't an infinity stone the driving force behind a few different recent Marvel movies?

Yeah, so there are three (or four depending on who you ask) stones accounted for.

Tesseract = space
Aether = reality
Loki's scepter = mind
And the orb in Guardians = power

Then yes. Another thing I forgot is that this is another marvel movie driven by a macguffin.

The Infinity Stones are not MacGuffins!  Well, okay, they kind of are, but they're not just interchangeable plot coupons.  They all do different things, and they're probably all going to reappear in the future.

EDIT: What a strange coincidence, the most recent two posts touched on this subject.  Anyway, yes, it's rumored that Loki's scepter contains the mind stone, but hasn't been confirmed.

So, what? That's like 3+ movies based around chasing macguffins?

Just 3 movies.

I really want an infinity gauntlet movie.

Four if you include the first Captain America, but that didn't really drive the plot in the way that MacGuffins typically do, it was more incidental to the story.

I really want an infinity gauntlet movie.

The gauntlet was briefly shown in the first Thor movie.  Did you see it?

The First Avenger? That was literally one of the worst movies I've ever seen.

How dare you even bring that up.

Yes I did. Did you guys notice Warlock's cacoon at the Collector's?
