Captain America: Civil War

I hadn't seen it before because it sounded tedious and stupid.

It is.

And I'm saying "stupid" in the context of a film series where past outings have included a giant flying alien mecha-snake as the chief villain.

This is a charmless, joyless, tiresome piece of crap; four hours of unlikable characters throwing the idiot ball back and forth.

At least it was on Netflix.

One star for.... No. Zero stars. Avoid.

I went back and watched the first hour of The Avengers. While it's also overlong and flabby with an indifferent plot, the dialog, characterisation, and action sequences are on an entirely different level to Civil War. Avengers is a fun film with some significant flaws; Civil War is drudgery.

The Avengers:
Steve Rogers: I wanna know why Loki let us take him. He's not leading an army from here.
Bruce Banner: I don't think we should be focusing on Loki. That guy's brain is a bag full of cats. You can smell crazy on him.
Thor: Have a care how you speak! Loki is beyond reason, but he is of Asgard and he is my brother!
Natasha Romanoff: He killed eighty people in two days.
Thor: He's adopted.

1 I found Age Of Ultron to be such a tedious slog that I still haven't gotten around to Civil War. It's like all the division heads at Marvel got a memo saying, "Suck Harder", and they forget to CC the folks making Deadpool and Logan. (just the movies...) -j

2 This was significantly worse than Age of Ultron.

But thanks for reminding me that I haven't seen Deadpool.

Apple pies are delicious. But never mind apple pies. What colour is a green orange?
