"I saw this in the theater with a friend who (like me) has a very high tolerance for obscure,messy film.We both left the screening saying,'What the hell WAS that?' "- RV

Beauty vs Beast: Pre Endgame

Jason Adams fromMNPPhere with this week's "Beauty vs Beast"-- a little movie calledAvengers: Endgamewill be hitting a couple of screens this weekend (we count Thursday nights are "the weekend"now in blockbuster world) with the blunt force of a megaton bomb;this time next week it'll be nothing but breathless box office masticating and eulogies for the fallen.So today,in the ever so brief calm before that oblivion,let's look back at last year'sInfinity Warappetizer and face down the great big goof heard round the galaxy -- that time Peter Quill aka Star-Lord (Chris Pratt) let his emotions get the best of him and let Thanos (Josh Brolin) live to snap another day...

PREVIOUSLYWhile every week is a good week to be Emma Thompson Week last week we made itofficial in honor of her 60th birthday,and the Merchant Ivory character to top them all turned out to be,with 68% of your vote,Margaret fromHoward's End.SaidMarsha Mason:

"Remains of the Dayis the better film imo,but her performance inHowards Endsticks with me a little more."

Father Figures,the best and worst of 2017

Each day a new "year in review"piece.Here's Ben Miller...

I've been a father since 2012.  It's one of the great joys in my life.  If you classified me as a person,father would be near the top of how I would want to be described.  I want to be a good father and I strive to be.

But,generally,I don't look to film for guidance.

Terrible fathers are a touchtone of cinema.  From Jack Torrance to Daniel Plainview,movie dads rarely get the chance to show how great they can be for their children.  2017 surprisingly provided us with a bevy of complex relationships between parents and their progeny,and the dads actually got a chance to shine.  Check out the top ten great dads in 2017 films.  (I also included five terrible fathers,because 2017 gotta 2017.)

Spoilers for all of these films are included

01Larry McPherson,Lady Bird(Played by Tracy Letts)
Lady Bird and her mother,the central figures in the film,aren't the only ones to benefit from Larry's warmth (we previously discussed this characterization here).Even when faced with a fruitless job interview,he smiles in the face of adversity,opting for a big bag of Doritos.  When his son comes in for the next interview,there is no animosity.  Larry straightens his tie,pats him on the shoulder and tells him to go get ‘em.  He does this while losing his job,providing for an extra person in his house,losing his daughter to college and suffering from years of depression.  God bless Larry McPherson.

Living in a Post-Credit World

By Spencer Coile

Elizabeth Debicki as Ayesha in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol.2

I work part-time at my local movie theater.Yes,it is as glamorous as it sounds.Working there has been pretty eye-opening,leading me to witness the best and worst of humanity (he said dramatically).Lately,though,as I am cleaning the theaters,I've become privy to an ever increasing trend: the post-credit scene.BetweenKong: Skull Island,Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales,Guardians of the Galaxy Vol.2 (one of them features Elizabeth Debicki's Ayesha,pictured above) to even a fifteen-second long trailer to the third installment of the latest entry into the Grey world afterFifty Shades Darker,audiences have come to expect something once the credits begin to roll...

Review: "Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2"

byChris Feil

Superhero sequels these days seem burdened to go more bigger than bombastic.If the entire human race isn't at stake and they aren't finding new ways to topple more and more skyscrapers,they aren't following the rules of engagement.So it is with some relief that Guardians of the Galaxy Vol.2 operates very much on the same level and ambitions as its predecessor,its sights on delivering what it did before and just as well.It gets what we loved about it before,and doesn't mistake it for empty spectacle.

That means more bickering,more quips,and more retro tunes as our space badasses once again defend the galaxy - but also about the same amount of scale in regards to what they are saving us from...

Baby Groot Pushing Buttons,Stealing Teasers

Guardians of The Galaxy Volume 2arrives in five months time.Baby Groot steals this new teaser though we'll surely have more of them in which the others try to steal it back.Good luck with that.

The last Guardians took the world by surprise to become the third biggest global and domestic hit of its year (despite next to zero brand recognition before it arrived) and two Oscar nominations (Makeup and Visual Effects).Volume 2won't have its element of surprise but what do you think the outcome will be?
