Well, Gamergate has spilled over into the mainstream media and the coverage appears to be nearly uniformly dreadful. Take " What is Gamergate, and What Does It Say About Gender In Video Games? " by David Konnow as an example.  It appears that the writer has done little to no...

Yeah Cap is indeed one of my favorite Marvel/Disney solo films right up there with the first Thor and Iron Man.

I saw it a second time tonight with some friends who hadn't seen it yet and one thing bothered me that I noticed and maybe you guys could help out...

Very minor spoilers...

In the beginning Captain America has a battle with some guy on a boat. For some reason this guy is a struggle for Cap despite the fact he took out a ship full of henchmen. I remember the first time I saw it I thought they would explain who this guy was later on and how he was able to get the better of Cap. But the movie was so good I soon forgot all about that fight. Seeing it again it reminded me how there was no explanation given.

that is probably the best answer its a movie that wants to show that there are still people who are normal that can fight alongside Cap for a bit or just hollywood trying to make something out of nothing

Now for a legitimate answer if i remember right they said he was one of the best mercenaries available due to being kicked out of spec ops or something I'm not exactly sure i saw it opening weekend don't remember much from it.

Oh you guys. This isn't Scott Pilgrim VS The World.

I googled it, which is what I should've done but I thought you guys knew your shit. OHHHHHH

He's a supervillain you're not familiar with. He's Batroc the Leaper, a villain from the comic books. He's a goofy acrobatic martial artist (specifically, he uses savate) who primarily fights Captain America, and has a French accent in the comics. He is a mercenary with a deep sense of honor, which they depicted in the film, and his martial arts style and skill enabled him to stand his ground against Captain America longer than most.

^ It all makes sense now!

I had no idea who the hell that guy was or why he was doing very well against Cap, considering Cap had pretty much incapacitated nearly the entire mercenary crew by himself, then out of nowhere this guy is going toe to toe with Cap and was doing relatively well. All I know is that mercenary was played by UFC Fighter George St. Pierre.

But yeah... I do agree that "Batroc the Leaper" as he's known was certainly indeed a boss fight... oh no, I need to get that footage and make a Scott Pilgrim inspired video of that.

I don't have a problem with the term "Boss fight" in a comic book movie. It just has to make sense and not some generic bad guy who is only there for an excuse to show a fight scene. Good to know he's an actual character thrown in for fan service.

Yeah, I thought that mercenary leader was going to be revealed to be "super" somehow... I dunno, I was expecting him to be a cyborg or something.

I was very confused not knowing who he was, but I'm glad that guy was actually a villain from Captain America and Marvel lore.

Batroc is a human peak villain but usually totally laughable in most appearances.

If you guys had paid attention in the comic news thread, you would've heard about the casting of Batroc the Leaper. I was personally disappointed that he didn't have a bigger role simply because it's fucking Batroc the Leaper.

Also, the guy who gets all fucked up at the end? He's Crossbones, the guy who kills Captain America.

He's got a cool history. I'll give him that.

And I knew about Grillo's character. I liked that Arnim's character looked similar to his comic look.

Astounding. Based on a true story, this movie brings all the impact and horrors war and more importantly dealing with the aftermath with strong characters, acting, and plot. I felt Nichole Kidman's acting was the only negative part of the movie, but I am biased against her and my friend was less bothered, so take that as you will. I would not be surprised if Colin Firth is nominated for an Oscar again (won for King's Speech in 2011)

5/5

In a World...

Written by, directed by, and starring the beautiful Lake Bell. She's a voice-over artist vying to land a big Don laFontaine-style movie trailer – competing against her dad and another man. A pretty straight-forward indie comedy. I wasn't exactly laughing out loud the whole time, but it is certainly more traditionally jokey than some mumblecore movie. The characters feel very real too, not too quirky like you would expect from an indie comedy. The B plot with Rob Corddry and Michaela Watkins was surprisingly emotional, considering it's from a first-time writer/director. It was probably due to really great acting performances from those two. I was cryin' I was laughin'

See it. 3.5/5

Again, that's just called "Neighbors" here. Quit changing our movie titles, you weirdos.

I saw Bad Neighbours last night (or Neighbours as it's called overseas) and it's hilarious. I really enjoyed it. Zac Efron or whatever his name is was surprisingly really funny. My friends and I all really enjoyed it.

Found out it's called "Bad Neighbours" in Australia because here in Australia we've got a TV show (a drama) called "Neighbours" that is hugely popular yet really shouldn't be.
