Rant #2 – I, me, My Superheroes !

Posted Leave a commentPosted in Rants

Apparently, Captain America : Civil war is the highest grossing movie of 2016, yet. Well, good for them. This has been a good year for people like me who love other people in spandex and capes kick some serious ass. We began with Deadpool (holy mother of dragons, was that movie good! ) and then came BvS : Dawn of Justice, which albeit ignoring a few gaps in storytelling, was pretty darn impressive merely virtue of its scale , only to be followed by Captain America : Civil war, which saw audience sit in absolute silence through the climatic battle of a superhero movie, that’s a first ! X-Men : Apocalypse has been running for a week now and I’m yet to watch it but I read a whole lot of stuff about how it has polarised the fans and such, must have something different then.

And we’re barely halfway through the year with Suicide Squad and Dr.Strange still on the books. It’s official guys, Geek is the new sexy.Well, at least on screen.
