With Watchmen being out there, that's a rather easy choice.

What I find most telling about these news starwars is my family...
I am a big starwars fan and so turning around and saying I don't like what is being done with starwars would be met with "racist" "misogynist" "fanboy" ... as if assigning a label and then dismissing something based upon a label has ever been valid BEFORE ever validating the initial assignment (watch the YT videos).

My family however... wife liked TFA but wasn't impressed with TLJ and solo was meh... my two kids were the same ...

I watched this yesterday.

Now that's proper movie making.

Ahh, yes. The friends going to the cabin in the woods plot.

How original.

In 1981, it was the original. In-fact, the first movie of its kind.

Okay. I have never been into blood and gore hacker movies.

I'd rather shorten copyright terms to 5 years total and watch the Hollywood bubble collapse in on itself.

I enjoyed it. It was filmed too dark. They spent some time on the characters, so I was invested in the story, more the Rogue One. No light sabers, no force stuff, no jedi.

Just a simple, well executed story in the star wars universe.

Now that is a serious philosophical quandary.

While the original canon, and some aspects of the expanded canon, of Star Wars is more my taste, the direction it is going in has turned me off.

With DC, I never cared. But I did like the newer Batman movies by Nolan.

So, if it's a Nolan DC film, then DC. If it's a bog standard DC film or modern Star Wars film, I'd like to pass.
