We’ve reached the Top 10 posters on my list! Yay. So, with no further delay, here are five more posters. Enjoy!
10. The Dark Knight and Selina Kyle
This poster is utter perfection. The color choice for the poster is already perfect but to impeccably incorporate Batman and Catwoman in this poster without ever seeing their faces is still one of the most mind-bogglingly awesome decisions I’ve ever seen for a poster. So stunning.
Even though we’re a few weeks removed from the Hawkeye era I’m finally getting around to ranking it in the MCU. Once again, this will be a slightly different ranking because it’s always shifting for me but, yeah, here we go. Let’s add this thirty-second installment to the list.
32. The Incredible Hulk
Eternals isn’t the worst MCU film. This is. It’s so bad it isn’t on Disney+ and I don’t care.
It’s got one of the best-acted scenes in the franchise between Tom Hiddleston and Anthony Hopkins when Loki’s birthright is revealed but…that’s the only great thing about this movie. Oh, and the first thirty minutes are pretty fun to watch. The rest is a snoozefest.
30. Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2
There’s too much hollering, the jokes aren’t as funny, Ego is an okay villain, Yondu’s death is corny, and Gamora gets sidetracked for this story a bit. The only thing that keeps me coming back is how visually stunning this movie is.
A few months ago I watched Eternals and upon my first viewing, I thought it was a good movie. Nothing overly special but nowhere near the searing Rotten score it garnered by critics. Yesterday evening I rewatched it for the second time and I’ve got to say, I was a bit blown away.
Eternals is the type of movie that benefits greatly from a second viewing because so many things make more sense. Like Ikaris’ robotic behavior and his unwavering duty to Arishem, the nuances between the heroes and their conflict with Arishem’s grand design, and so much more. I found myself deeply invested in the story and I’ve got to admit, I got a bit emotional a couple of times.
Eternals is at its best when Chloe Zhao dives deep into the epicness of this story. At times, the humor that mainly Kingo brings feels a little forced or a bit out of place in the ultra-seriousness of the story but the humor is there to remind us it is, in fact, an MCU movie.
The action, when there is some, is more brutal than most installments in the franchise. I found myself wincing and quite worried during the Deviant attack in the Amazon. Zhao made sure to let us know at all times that the Deviants were predators and they viciously attack as such. It’s no surprise one of the Eternals died during that sequence.
