I am happy to see that an entire new batch of goons is learning how pointless is to try and counter any of BotL pseudo-intellectual arguments, since he never actually engage in any discussions. Godspeed!

Like I feel the need to remind people that The Avengers is not a recording of real events but a work of fiction. Works of fiction are fundamentally rhetorical, and if you start talking about the necessity of nuking the alien menace you might have been taken in by the rhetoric.

Ah, I stand corrected. I think I remember reading that but just forgot. Either way, yeah, that's some typical IDF rear end-kissing. I'm sure those boys and girls murdering rock throwers and the press with sniper fire are risking life and limb. Or them bullying children half their age because they gave them some attitude.

Which kinda makes her runway stroll through the Western Front even weirder, honestly. I leaned over to my girlfriend while we were watching and asked "Why isn't anyone just shooting her in the head?" and her response was "Why is she walking?"

Um, they are almost exclusively trying to shoot her in the head during that scene, so they can have the close ups containing her bullet defections and her facial reactions in the same shots. The same happens when she is using the shield to protect herself from the machine gun, though there is a slightly comical shot before she crouches, where she's standing upright using a two foot shield to protect her six foot body.

Welcome to the superhero genre. Same goes for, let's see...

It's almost like selfless acts of courage are a defining trait in the superhero genre, idk.

Also, half of these involve doomsday scenarios that would clearly impact the protagonist, and a bunch of others involve villains that are messing with the hero's subjects/company, so they aren't acting entirely selflessly. They have very clear personal motivations to become involved, which they then go above and beyond during the climax. Wonder Woman starts off selflessly joining the quest to end the war, because the war is not presented as a threat to the Amazons beyond the initial beach fight. But you're right that this is not unique, with Spiderman: Homecoming being another example of a hero putting themselves in harms way with no personal reason to, other than it's the right thing to do.

The bad thing about being a mod is that there’s a whole forum to police that I imagine is just endless variations on this thread, but where prequel talk and Snyder debates interrupt talk about Howard Stern or Terry Gross or something.

Ironically the way the Avengers handles the nuclear strike (ie. a government ordered strike on New York that the heroes try to prevent) is way more anti-nuke than the one in Batman Vs. Superman even though the former saves the day and the latter makes things worse.

The problem is that SMG can usually post something so batshit it loops around to being interesting or funny. BOTL has literally never posted anything interesting. Every comment is full of buzzwords and rhetoric that has the depth of a jug of lukewarm piss.

If you squint and turn your head BOTL sounds smart but it's literally just the annoying guy in Film Theory 101 who raises his hand and goes "ACTUALLY Professor I think...." and the entire class groans because here we loving go again.

smg once made a good post - it was about how bad the shot composition is in avengers. sometime later when i mentioned he defended movies with shot composition that was at that level or sometimes worse he just filled posts full of bullshit and diagrams about how the poor composition in those shots was actually really good.

Not sure how showing using nuclear weapons being super effective and saving the day makes them more anti-nuke than using it which accelerates your own destruction. I mean, you can like one movie and dislike the other, dislike or like both but the messaging in Avengers was pretty bad.
