I like how nostalgia is a factor and then it isn’t a factor for all these points made for this movie.

this movie may not have the single greatest box office but it certainly has the great number of excuses by those who claimed they liked the movie

 

lots of excuses, to be sure, but it lags far behind the excuses from the d.c. crowd when another d.c.e.u. movie bombs with the critics [and people, with jl].

I think we all know why JL under performed and I think we probably are in agreement (those who liked the movie and those who didn’t)

the movie was cut shorter than had to be by the studio making it with the Whedon reshoots a bit incoherent, general public not happy with Snyder style and ultimately the critics score etc

I know you want to make this a DC vs Disney but this movie has people defending decisions made in this movie that goes against what the previous 7 films have created and more importantly it takes everything set up in the previous movie and dismiss it

Now come on. The list was pretty straightforward what happened with Justice League.

And there ya go!

And even Gatsby hit on why the lower attendance at the box office. Folks that didn't care for BvS and SS read those critic opinions and bailed on attending. But the majority of those that went gave it a decent score, although recognizing it was flawed.

Now, derail the purpose of this thread and I will send in the Alliance Sloth Bomber Squad utilized in 'The Last Jedi'. They are coming your way - fast! Well, THEIR fast. At least the very last bomber always survives.

The amount of repeat viewings is probably down but won’t be noticeable in this movie. I really think there numbers will be significant in the final chapter unless Abrams pulls a rabbit out of the hat (which I believe he can do) and tie this up nicely

What issues and what condition?

My criteria too slab is are they high grade and are they keys?

Most comic books that are mid grade commons really are not worth slabbing, but that is for the individual to decide and not me.

Ok thanks! I'll take a better look at em this evening. to see what all I got. Some old woman contacted me and had some old magazines. There were some Vampirella's in there among others. The price was so cheap, I never even bothered to look at em yet. lol.

I like to think of this movie as the gift that keeps on giving

i can’t wait till some of the scenes make it online so I can keep carpet bombing this thread with the ridiculousness that is this movie

Also sounds like filming is going to start soon for Ep. IX in Scotland. Including Argyll and in the historic mountain pass known as the Rest and Be Thankful

It looks like this movie is being dropped down to 1-2 screens in most theatres 

i guess the milk is running low on the teat
