A new Marvel Comics movie. This one looks really good.

It's fantastic. Would highly recommend.

Economics and diplomacy are methods of securing resources used by humans.

These are some of the best characters created in Marvel comics, and that's the exact reason why I want my memories of them to be the printed page. I just can't imagine even with the technology now Groot even being able to hold the grandeur I've seen drawn. Seeing Thanos at the end of Avengers so enough to relay that movies are not the best medium for every story to be told. My fear of disappointment will keep me away for a good while, which I'm okay with. But everyone I've heard that has watched it, familiar with the characters or not, has enjoyed it so that says something.

I don't know, the way they built Thanos so far he's looking to be a legitimate universal threat. Brolin did an excellent job exuding that type of "I could F you up with with a thought" swagger that Big T usually carries with him. I reckon I'll be proper frightened when he slips that Infinity Gauntlet on for the first time on the big screen.

It was neat to see and if they're going in the direction of the infinity gems instead of the cosmic cube like they hinted at, it could be some good cinema. It'd be nice to see the Surfer back too, just not Lawrence Fishburne. I don't know what Bendis is doing with GotG now but I'd like too see an Annihilation or at least Annihilation Conquest to introduce these characters to the screen as Dan Abnett and Andy Lanning did in the comics. I haven't always heard positives on Bendis work with the characters which is what the movie is suppose mostly be based on. But I may just be acting a bit fan boyish and just need to watch it and enjoy it for whàt it is. As I don't see the general audience keeping an interest in superhero comic books movies for much longer, even if the quality doesn't slip.

So Wing-Zero I finally did watch it.  It was a good film.  Not much to nitpick outside of the less than glorious god-like size of Groot, but still an enjoyable film.  I'll be keeping an eye out for any sequels whether I invest in any more of Marvel's movies or not.
