Thanks for including the part of the article that included Antman expanding inside of Thanos's anus, really brought the whole article together.

@RegularPoochie -

Tarantino's answer prompts me to wonder;

which would be snyder favorite MCU movie ?

RegularPoochie - 6/10/2019, 11:52 AM
@Equivocal - None, he only cares about JL Snyder cut.

I call myself thanus or just anus
SpideyPuffsMJ - 6/10/2019, 6:01 AM
Once again, Tarantino is right and a lot of you people are still wrong about that film.
regularmovieguy - 6/10/2019, 6:02 AM

Ragnarok isn’t very divisive. A lot of people love that movie.
Sickness1985 - 6/10/2019, 6:04 AM
@regularmovieguy - nomis doesnt like it
SpideyPuffsMJ - 6/10/2019, 6:17 AM
@regularmovieguy - Correct. A lot of people *here* don't like it though.
Vigor - 6/10/2019, 6:39 AM
@SpideyPuffsMJ - They're just very vocal about it, but doesn't mean they make up a large portion of this community. Most people recognize it's an awesome movie. The only complaints people have about the movie is the use and type of humor; specifically how humor undercuts some of the dramatic moments. Same complaint as Guardians 2. But vast majority of folks agree those two are well-done MCU movies

@regularmovieguy - Are you kidding me? Ragnarok is the go to example for the "Marvel is nonstop kiddie jokes" crowd, they always wanna say how it ruined Thor being a badass. Yet on the contrary he's even more badass now that he's more relatable, thank you Taika ans the Russos for fixing Thor.
regularmovieguy - 6/10/2019, 6:01 AM
Ragnarok. Not surprising. Definitely a top 5 Marvel movie.
HeavyMetal4Life - 6/10/2019, 6:11 AM
@regularmovieguy - its number 6 for me. Such a great movie
Frshcoupe - 6/10/2019, 8:06 AM
@HeavyMetal4Life - what’s your top 5?
HeavyMetal4Life - 6/10/2019, 8:31 AM
@Frshcoupe -
1. Endgame
2. Infinity War
3. Civil War
4. Winter Soldier
5. Guardians of the Galaxy

6 and 7 are Ragnarok and Black Panther. Maybe I'd put Ragnarok actually at 7th, I like it much more than BP but BP is the better movie imo.
MrCamw1 - 6/10/2019, 1:02 PM
@HeavyMetal4Life - solid list.
SauronthePower - 6/10/2019, 3:21 PM
@HeavyMetal4Life -


Infinity War
Guardians of the Galaxy

"We're guessing you didn't have Quentin Tarantino down as a Marvel Studios fan, right?"

Basically anyone who knows Tarantino knows he's a comic book fan. He referenced Fantastic Four in Reservoir Dogs, Superman in Kill Bill, and he almost directed Luke Cage.
Dredd97 - 6/10/2019, 6:28 AM
@soberchimera - Yo, his Luke Cage movie would've been [frick]ing fire. He said Laurence Fishburne was his Luke Cage. Imagine Sam Jackson as Cottonmouth. Maybe even Pam Grier as Misty Knight. That would've rocked.
soberchimera - 6/10/2019, 6:55 AM
@SmokingMan - Luke Cage could've been the urban Count of Monte Cristo. Carl Lucas is a criminal framed by his former friends and gangmembers, (Diamondback, Shades, Commanche who work for Cottonmouth) and Lucas returns to Harlem under a new name for revenge and redemption. But they had to turn him into a cop from Georgia for some reason, and they didn't even show how he was framed.

Also, I forgot, Tarantino said Inglourious Basterds was inspired by Sgt. Fury and his Howling Commandos.

This choice actually doesn't surprise me. Sounds a lot like the kind of film he'd like.
GhostDog - 6/10/2019, 6:18 AM
Not surprising. I feel like it was always going to be either Ragnarok or BP.
Shroombeast - 6/10/2019, 6:21 AM
It's always super cool to see people like him actually enjoying these movies instead of shitting on them like they usually do.
Dredd97 - 6/10/2019, 6:25 AM
@Shroombeast - so true. Plus he's a major comic book fan
SonOfAGif - 6/10/2019, 7:04 AM
@Shroombeast - James Cameron right?
Shroombeast - 6/10/2019, 7:11 AM
@SonOfAGif - Exactly. Luc Besson too. Plenty more I can't remember.
LongMayHeReign - 6/10/2019, 7:33 AM
@Shroombeast - Don't forget Jodie Foster and Spielberg.
MrCamw1 - 6/10/2019, 1:05 PM
@LongMayHeReign - And Ethan Hawke, Tim Allen (sorta I might have read his interview the wrong way) and Alissa Milano.
Dredd97 - 6/10/2019, 3:15 PM
@MrCamw1 - Just all the A listers. I loved Alyssa Milano's newest blockbuster, and Tim Allen's newest smash comedy hit...oh wait...
santoanderson - 6/10/2019, 6:25 AM
I watched the Thor trilogy this weekend, and watching The Dark World and Ragnarok back-to-back was like night-and-day. I remember watching TDW in theaters and thinking it was fun and watchable, but after seeing Ragnarok, The Dark World is really bad. It’s like Star Wars prequels bad.
