    Downey's 3 solo outings made more money than Cap's 3 solo outings and the for the last Cap outing, it arguably made as much money because Downey was in it! He's kinda sorta the biggest grandest most flawed yet most humane character. But on paper yes, Cap's the leader. As they say in Corporate America, Tony's too much of a great individual contributor to be a good leader of people. And he has too many demons. -- On side a note - this film will be interesting character prominence wise. I thought Infinity War had a very curious grouping of main characters which made the film fascinating to watch and in some ways pretty bold. Thanos is by far the lead character of the film. But on the good guys' side - the 'action' characters - or the ones driving the narrative forward with their actions and choices are Dr. Strange, Thor and Scarlett Witch and the character whose fate drives the film is Gomorroah. So there you have it - the 5 main characters for Infinity War were Thanos, Gomorrah, Dr. Strange, Thor and Scarlett Witch. I bet nobody expected that. Cap and Black Panther were glorified cameos. Tony had a small supporting role to play. So it will be interesting to see who gets to stand out in Endgame.

    Magnificent actor. His performance in Good Time is outstanding.
  3. The Mummy is a fantastic textural score. It really adds a lot to the movie it is supporting. It has the regal old world feel to it. And its nasty bits have a true sense of menace and evil. The themes are big and bold. The love theme is lovely.
  4. If it's not in her book or her screenplay, it's bullshit. It's like Mel Gibson receiving praise after the release of Expendables 3 for saying how his character had saved oppressed people from persecution in his youth or fought in the civil Rights movement. Should Gibson get praise for such claims? Opportunism has to be called out wherever it comes from.

    Hans Zimmer's DUNE (2020)

    Just going by what the record shows. I looked at his page at filmtracks. http://www.filmtracks.com/composers/zimmer.shtml There are 99 co-wrote credits there. 99.

    That's an oxymoron.

    Let not gkgyver's sin be saying things that are unpopular here or expressing opinions that are unpopular here. Everyone gets to speak, even voices that disagree with our own. Any behavior that is permissible in any other member should be allowed to him as well.

    Goes to show this entire social justice bullshit is a scam and a fraud perpetrated upon the public to advance whatever ulterior agenda that powers that be want. For shame. How isn't hollywood just imploding with hypocrisy?

    Clever trailer, most of it was flashbacks. They are really keeping it under the wraps. A novelty among modern films.

    That is because zero stars wasn't available. No - this is the music in my head -

    Mary Poppins Returns - Marc Shaiman & Co

    Finally saw the movie - and it confirmed it for me, this score is a masterpiece. I mean the actual score that is the non song portions. All the music is very lushly and brightly orchestrated, the sound is dense and enveloping, the mix is great and loud, the application of the themes impeccable, I think that is where the score excels. The fidelity to the application of themes is perfect, specially the main theme. There is a particular callback to an old Sherman tune in the score and it is so perfectly timed that is unbearably poignant. You need to experience this score in the context of the movie (as all scores should be) to appreciate it. This is the best film score of 2018.

    What a charlatan. Talking out of his ass with hardly any good work to show for it.
