    I'm completely ambivalent on Han so far and am willing to wait until I actually see the movie to make a final judgement, but...

    ...I can already tell this movie would have been 9001 time more awesome if it was 'Lando' instead.

    I don't have the reverence for Ford or Han Solo most seem to, so I don't have a problem with the new one at all. He seems... faithful to me.

    Rogue One is my fav SW movie, but if they Fast & Furious this one... That may be challenged...

    I'm a simple man.

    I'd say the only thing that's really missing from the characterization is Ford's very recognizable deep voice. It was an essential part of Han's swagger. And Ehrenreich, through no fault of his own, just kinda sounds like a young teenage boy. Other than that, yeah. Fairly faithful.

    So I've got all this puff pastry dough lying around, and I thought I'd know what to do with it after watching this "Bready, Layered Bun" movie that everyone is talking about... turns out it was actually about 80s nostalgia, virtual reality, and what have you. Not a pastry or loaf in sight.

    It was pretty decent fun, though, if depressingly carb-free.

    I mean, as an Ohioan whose childhood mostly spanned the 80s, it was bound to be right up my alley... but what the hell am I gonna do with all this dough (after I get my hearing checked)?

    I'm not consuming any more Star Wars material until the lunatics are no longer in control of the asylum. They don't care about Star Wars, they just care about pushing garbage and they think this franchise is the one too big to fail on them while they're doing it. Well...

    Super Troopers 2 was great fun. Not as hilarious as the first, and they definitely recycled some jokes here and there, but it was well worth the handful of dollars I put in for the ticket and cheap movie swag on indiegogo.

    Deadpool 2: The Final Trailer.

    And just like that, the hero is born. Because he saw the add.

    Seriously, going by the comments, there is a good chance that Peter will steal this film from everybody else. As long as he survives the landing. ;)

    Infinity War and Deadpool 2 within weeks of each other. We're spoiled.

    I'm more hyped for Deadpool and I can't really explain why. I think I've just been avenger'd out. I haven't even caught up on some of the other releases short of Thor Ragnarok.

    It's going to be fun as hell is why, at least IMO. As much as I enjoy the rest of the MCU, I've gotten tired of the Serious Superhero Squad. The first Deadpool was dirty, gory, and funny, which made it good, and its that same dose of humor which made Guardians of the Galaxy and Thor: Ragnarok fun.

    Despite my general feelings on Super Serious Superheroes, I'm all about dem anti-heroes and Venom looks excellent. Not sure I can deal with Hardy's american accent, though.

    I'm definitely looking forward to this. Spider Man series as a movie franchise has always been disappointing.

    Seriously. He's supposed to be in San Francisco. Why does he sound like he's from some weird combination of Boston and outer borough New York?

    New York and Boston are pretty easy to imitate; lots of lilt and recognizable sounds. Your standard American blended accent is a lot harder to get down.

    I only hope they invest more script work in Deadpool 2 this time. I enjoyed the gimmick of 1 and more than half of the movie a lot but then it somehow felt they ran out of plot to me and filled it up with the cheapest X-Men they could their hands on which was probably a too meta joke for me.

    I mean... in pretty much all mediums Deadpool is usually a comedic character first and an action hero / dramatic character second. The first film stayed true to that; the actual "plot" was a generic revenge tale, only made entertaining due to humorous action scenes and numerous jokes. I won't be expecting the sequel to have a great story either.

    Need to take myself to go see this, hope it's not out of theaters before I get the chance.

    Céline Dion - Ashes.

    I would say that with a marketing campaign like this Infinity War's records are already in danger of being broken. ;)

    Confirmed--Galadriel in Deadpool 2. LOTR/Marvel xover we deserve.

    "Fear the power of my ring, spawn of Sauron!"

    "You looked really great in Thor 3, would you mind wearing that in this movie too?"
