I can't wait until Luke Skywalker dies and everyone pretends that it's surprising and sad.

Pacific Rim was so bad.


At least they found a more charismatic actor to play the lead.


And uh, the guy who runs the Daredevil Netflix show to direct.

Is Doom's single player campaign worth checking out? I had assumed the draw was the multiplayer for some reason.

The pro-Dracula bit is essential IMO.

Yeah, I understand the worry, but people have been saying this about the Marvel movies for years, too, and I still don't really see it. The Guardians of the Galaxy movies feel distinct from anything else, Iron Man 3 felt like a Shane Black movie, the Joss Whedon ones are very obviously Joss Whedon ones, the Louis Leterrier one was exactly as bad as every other Louis Leterrier movie, Cap 1 was classic Joe Johnston, the Russo Brothers are better than everyone else. Granted, when they hire boring no-name directors with no discernible style of their own, they end up making those very paint-by-numbers Marvel Movies™, but I've yet to see a director with a distinct voice get chewed up by the machine (well, except for Edgar Wright's original Ant-Man, obviously :P).


Eh, I agree that Guardians has a unique feel, and that the Russo Brothers' films are recognizable because they're actually good, and the Whedon ones are recognizable because the dialogue is so bad and the female characters are...typical Whedon fantasies, but aside from that I don't see a lot of variation. Maybe I'm just unfamiliar with a lot of the directors...and I don't really like the Marvel films at all to begin with. 


But totally, I'm willing to give Episode VIII a chance and see if it actually builds on the existing content or if they just continue to replicate the story beats from the original trilogy. I certainly want it to be good and different.
