Deadlines? What Deadlines? Posted July 3, 2022 Share Posted July 3, 2022 On 7/1/2022 at 11:37 AM, Rhom said: But you still have to have a nostalgic tie back to the 1980's... Is it tho? I mean, I guess it sort of does but not in the same way as something like WW84 and Stranger Things. It's also got a lot more going for it than that. I'll say it again, the last 30 minutes of TG:M is fucking intense; in a way that the final battle of most Avengers movies isn't. On top of brilliant visuals and editing, you aren't breaking the tension every 1.5 minutes to inject some meh banter or some sight gag, which seems to be par for the course for a lot of superhero stuff. The characters in this film also don't have the kind of plot armor that goes along with a shared universe franchise. I view this film a bit like The Color of Money. Technically, it's a sequel to The Hustler, but you didn't have to see the latter to enjoy the former. I never even made the connection between those two until long after I'd seen it. What's amazing is that there's less separation in time between those two films (25 years) than there is between TG and TG:M. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
