          robin hood isn't dead it just needs someone with a brain to rework it
          the last time that happened was 1991 not prince of thieves btw, i'm talking about the other 1991 robin hood film made starring patrick bergan, uma therman and jurgen prochnow, it was supposed to compete with prince but ultimately became a tv film

            Fast and Furious 2 is dog shit. The first one wasn't that good either, but it was still 10 times better.

          two towers is a shit movie, anon
          i'm being generous to rotk because it has more decent scenes than ttt overall, but both are pretty bad
          hobbit 1 has some cringe shit (like the ogre with the cgi balls or whatever he is), but overall it's got way better structure than ttt and rotk and it's much closer to the spirit of the hobbit than ttt/rotk are to lotr
          rotk in particular, if you're a fan of the book, is an abomination

              Why can't you boomer fricks just accept that the prequels weren't made for you? Lucas always aimed Star Wars primarily at 12 year old boys so it shouldn't be a shock to you that people who were around that age when the movies came out resonated with them more.

      Wrong, Disney didn't have full control of the MCU until after the first Avengers movie, and the results of their influence wasn't seen until after "Age of Ultron"....after that all the MCU movies turned to shit, until we got Infinity War and Endgame.

          >they purchased marvel in 2009

          Yes, and?

          (in order of their release)
          1) Iron Man
          2) Incredible Hulk
          3) Iron Man 2
          4) Thor
          5) Captain America
          6) The Avengers
          7) Iron Man 3
          ... these were not Disney produced movies. They were done by Paramount, even if Disney bought them during 2009, the most they could do is celebrate owning the movies under their banner, and could not be influenced on the eve of their release.

          8) Thor: Dark World
          9) Captain America: The Winter Soldier
          10) Guardians of the Galaxy
          11) Avengers: Age of Ultron

          These movies were produced mid-way through the Disney deal. And you can ACTUALLY see the tonal shift that occurs with AoU, when Disney decided to bully out the talent after believing they cracked the formula with GotG.

          12) Ant-Man
          13) Captain America: Civil War
          14) Doctor Strange
          15) Guardians of the Galaxy Vol.2
          16) Spider-man: Homecoming
          17) Thor: Ragnarok
          18) Black Panther

          Now look at the next batch...pure capeshit, uninspired, hardly original. Cool SFX, interesting continuity, fanboy shit for the comic geeks, sure, but boring to the average movie goer. They tried too hard in emulating the GotG formula (that balance of light-hearted comedy with superhero seriousness).

          19) Avengers: Infinity War
          20) Captain Marvel
          21) Avengers: Endgame

          The whole infinity stone saga sub-plot is what kept most people on their ride. And to be honest, they did frick it up a lot. Honestly, it did turn out to be 'good' for the most part, but you can tell (just like with Star Wars) when Disney buys an unfinished franchise they "GoT: Season 7/8" the whole thing in the process.

              Exactly, that's the thing. GotG was a good movie, but only for itself and Gunn's vision. It worked taking a B-list comic title and making kino on the movie screen.

              ...but in Disney's eyes, they thought 'if they made all their movies like that, we don't need to spend money any talent from here on out', just take a bunch of diversity hires and put them on auto-pilot.

                Exactly again, you see that too.

                Thor "was" supposed to be the High-Fantasy leg of the MCU. Swords and Sorcery, Dungeon n' Dragon, kind of thing.... I mean, look at who they hired as a director "Kenneth Branagh", Mr. Shakespeare trained actor himself to manage it.

                Yes, the first Thor movie wasn't that great, (still entertaining tho), they decided to take another crack at the High-Fantasy angle with one of the Game of Thrones showrunners to keep the experience in that setting.

                Yes, that didn't turn out great either.... so Disney applied the "GotG formula" and we got Ragnarok, which was basically GotG-lite, with that extra dash of woke-shit, while butchering any chance of seeing a World War Hulk movie too. Funny and exciting as Ragnarok was to the average brain-dead movie goer....it was in fact a shitty post-Disney movie.

      It's not very dead. It's not even close. If deadness of a franchise was a spectrum with something like Star Wars or Doctor Who on one end (death) and on the other end things like Godzilla or maybe One Piece or whatever then Jurassic Park and James Bond would be like 2/3 of the way but closer to "alive"

          The last two got mixed to negative reviews but now people aren't angry about them or anything. Even the fans have JW movies they love and hate but the brand is really strong among kids. A new movie is a no brainer given the merch sales. There's a new game and cartoons if anything Universal didn't fully capitalize on the hype and missed the mark with the sequels but it has the potential to be the fourth biggest movie series (SW, Marvel and DC are paramount no matter their failings).
          Right now Jurassic Park fans are mostly jealous of its sister franchise.
