• falcon + winter soldier

    From Ogg@VERT/CAPCITY2 to All on Sun May 2 21:37:00 2021
    Hello All,

    I felt trepidatious venturing into the first few episodes Falcon
    And The Winter Soldier series. But I surrendered to the flow and
    finished the first season and enjoyed the journey.

    The effects were well crafted. The story-line was compelling.
    The humour was peppered sparingly.

    I've seen some of the Avenger series full-feature films in the
    past, (the first 2 Ironman movies, for sure) but after a while
    another one of them disuaded me to continue - I forget which
    one. I think it was Thor: Dark World - the one with Loki. I
    just couldn't finish watching that one.

    However, F+WS has made me curious to how the original Captain
    America "dies" and ceased to exist, and why the world entered
    into such a dark time. Apparently, the Avengers:Endgame film is
    supposed to cover that aspect.

    Sofar, I like what I've seen. The beer-bellied Thor is
    hilarious. I am not sure of the origins of Rocket the racoon,
    but maybe I'll work my way backward in the timeline to find out.

    the bad guys in the falcon and winter soldier are the ones that want it to go back to when there was the snap, i believe.

    and captain america didnt die or cease to exist. he just retired in the past.

    Rocket is the result of some experiment (Guardians of the Galaxy I).
    If you want to enjoy the MCU you actually need to consume most of its films. You may skip the Spiderman ones and the Fantastic Four ones (are these
    ones actually MCU?). I think this is yet another reason not to jump into it since the MCU requirtes a big investment from you :-)

    One of the fandom wikis has filled in the gaps for me now.

    and captain america didnt die or cease to exist. he just
    retired in the past.

    The F+WS made a reference to his death. So, I assumed he was
    killed. But the Endgame revealed the death was probably from old
    age. But there is no clear reveal of an actual death. With the
    liberty of time-travel so easily available, I guess anything can

    I think I've had enough of those movies right now. The
    liberties of time-travel make it too easy to "fix" things.

    I tackled the Endgame film in about 3 sessions. I simply got
    tired of the time-travel trickery. Ok.. so Capt. America
    returns the stones to their respective timelines.. so that
    basically puts the stones back into play and an opportunity for
    things to repeat themselves. Sheeesh.

    I'm not sure where Thanos comes from, but that dude had issues.

    well, wikis arent a replacement for watching the movie.

    come on now, man!

    watch thor ragnarok.
    that's a great movie.

    the time travel part didnt seem like it took up too much of the movie.

    they put the stones back where they got them [but they didnt] to preserve the timeline [which they didnt].

    they sort of overlooked a few parts where they screwed it all up

    I very much enjoyed it, and the ending brought a tear to my eye!

    As for Endgame and the rest... I actually recently went back to
    the beghinning and started watching the entire MCU again - but
    this time catching the movies I havne't seen (so far, just Hulk)
    and adding in the television shows. I'd seen Peggy Carter Season
    One as well as Daredevil Season One. I'd also seen S1 and most of
    S2 of Agents of Shield. Now I've seen those 'again' and also others
    that I had missed - I'm on S2 of Carter now and I've seen Jessica
    Jones. Boy that's a contrast...

    Did you watch Infinity War first? Or just went straight into
    Endgame?

    Yeah - they have to repeat... Remember when Tony Stark was
    ADAMENT to Banner about "don't undo anything, just bring back
    the people that were removed" (paraphrasing). He didn't want
    to undo his daughter!

    I'm not sure where Thanos comes from, but that dude had issues.

    I don't remember it being explained in the movies, but it's obvious
    he's a powerful being from 'out there.'

    The first Iron Man, Thor Ragnarok and Guardians of The Galaxy are hands

    must watch to move forward, but most of the others you can skip or watch
    as desired. I think Spiderman Homecoming was very good as well.

    In the F+WS first episode, either the F or the WS used the word

    Endgame, it was probably old age.

    i didnt catch that and i looked it up and i guess in episode 5 sam refers to him as 'gone' but they never said dead.

    most of the world doesnt know that he stayed in the past to live a live with carter and is and old man now.

    I had a feeling there was another reference to him 'gone' in a

    But.. considering that Tony invented a time machine, anything

    Iron Man 3. There's a kid Tony meets up with in that film. That
    kid could be a vector into a future story-line.

    Not long ago, there was a Tv series called Heroes, about group
    of people that were engineered to have powers. I invested in
    that one - if only to learn about their origins.

    I really liked the MCU-adjacent shows like JJ, Luke Cage, and The Defenders. Iron Fist not quite so much.

    One thing that's made me laugh lately is watching "reaction" videos on
    YouTube - watching hardcore fans watching SF content and losing their sh*t when things happen - like the ending of Mandalorian S2. Tears were flowing.

    There was a video of the Endgame battle with Thanos, when Thanos has Thor on the ground, and, well, we all know. The people watching went absolutely
    crazy - I'm not sure where they filmed the reactions.

    Hey, do we know what happened to Mjolnir, post Endgame? Captain America brought it with him through the time portal, but didn't come back with it.

    How about a "Man in the High Castle" kinda thing where maybe Captain America didn't make a difference in WWII and the Axis powers won?

    they made no mention of it, but i assume it goes back to thor once he sticks out his hand and calls it.

    remember thor stole it from his past self.

    Never heard of that one.

    there were a few pre-Disney Marvel shows on Netflix.. they're all pretty good. and they're tied up quite nicely at the end with all of them coming together for The Defenders. i think most people would agree Daredevil was the best of the lot, perhaps followed by Punisher. so i'd watch them in whatever order makes sense but saves as much of those for last.

    I very much enjoyed it, and the ending brought a tear to my

    Yeah.. the "family" feel that brought everyone together was
    nice.

    Yeah, that, but I'm specifically talking about (trying to avoid spoilers
    for anyone like me that doesn't want details before they see it) -

    the statue...

    As for Endgame and the rest... I actually recently went
    back to the beghinning and started watching the entire MCU
    again..

    Ok.. see you in the next decade!

    LOL

    ..I'm on S2 of Carter now and I've seen Jessica Jones. Boy
    that's a contrast...

    Never heard of that one.

    Jessica Jones is on Netflix. Takes place in New York, and is
    very much in the same 'tone' as Daredevil...

    Not long ago, there was a Tv series called Heroes, about group
    of people that were engineered to have powers. I invested in
    that one - if only to learn about their origins.

    I LOVED loved LOVED the first season!!! Was one long story and was
    really engaging! Then S2 seemed like a "well that worked, let's
    try again" and then S3 jumped the shark 'for me' - YMMV.

    I went back and watched Season One again and stopped. :-)

    Did you ever watch Dollhouse?!?!? That and Jericho! WOW!!!

    I might do that too. At the time, I could only watch them on
    broadcast tv and wait a week for the next episode; by then, the
    emmersive feel of being vested in a story was gone.

    Briefly. Sounds like Westworld, but using humans as the

    Hello JIMMY ANDERSON!

    what episode? he was alive and an old man and he was the
    guy who handed the shield over to falcon in the movie.

    In the F+WS first episode, either the F or the WS used the
    word death. ..so I assumed he died, somehow. Based on the
    ending in Endgame, it was probably old age.

    I missed that... But it could also be a secret that he's
    alive, and the 'world' thinks he is dead...

    Anything is possible in the MCU. :/ Now that they have time-
    machine technology, they can flip flop any storyline they want.

    Someone mentioned that there was a reference to Capt. America
    hanging out on the moon.

    that's a great movie.

    The first Iron Man, Thor Ragnarok and Guardians of The
    Galaxy are hands down the best movies in the MCU. Infinity
    War and End Game are kind of must watch to move forward, but
    most of the others you can skip or watch as desired. I
    think Spiderman Homecoming was very good as well. --

    I've started Thor: Ragnarok. It was out in 2017. 2013-2018 was
    particularily a dark entertainment period for me, and I didn't
    really care about films and TV in general - so I missed that
    one. But I like it! I'm only up to the point where Thor is
    trapped in that "stupid chair" and some kind of contest is about
    to ensue. Visually, the film is beautifully done. The humour is
    nice, but helps to give pause to the more gruesome parts like
    the killings that Helo likes to do.

    The scenes when Thor is talking (or trying to talk with) Dr
    Strange were funny.

    I don't *think* I've seen Guardins of the Galaxy (apparently
    there are 3 of those films). They have Groot, and Rocket.. I
    don't recall ever seeing a film with them. The films were also
    in my media-dark period of 2013-2018. But a few reviews make it
    sound GotG to be a worthwhile try.

    I went straight to Endgame. I don't recall ever seeing Infinity
    War. I guess that one explains Thanos' rampage.

    Yeah - they have to repeat... Remember when Tony Stark was
    ADAMENT to Banner about "don't undo anything, just bring
    back the people that were removed" (paraphrasing). He
    didn't want to undo his daughter!

    I thought the funniest part was when they were explaining how
    time-travel works by mentioning how it was used in other actual
    films. :D

    I'm not sure where Thanos comes from, but that dude had
    issues.

    I don't remember it being explained in the movies, but it's
    obvious he's a powerful being from 'out there.'

    Sounds like I will spin-up Infinity War at some point, soon.

    there were a few pre-Disney Marvel shows on Netflix.. they're all

    I liked the detective noir feeling of Jessica Jones S1, loved that all of
    the shows centered around the same neighborhood, so you had a common feel.

    Krysten Witter in a leather jacket, engineer boots, t-shirt and old levis

    If Marvel has a time machine, I want to go from MCU to Iron Sky and somehow get to Kung Fury.

    Post Black Widow, otherwise the movies would be all about them making out.

    Could have been, but if so I think they 'pulled it off' quite

    good, I'm pretty disappointed that they couldn't reach a deal moving
    forward, but it likely came down to Disney+ concerns in the end.

    Mike Colter (Luke Cage) went on to a series called Evil, which is pretty
    good as well. Looks like they'll be putting it on Paramount+ instead of broadcast for season 2. I'll be taking to the high seas for this one, I
    can only handle paying for so many different services at a time leaching $7-20/month from me.
