mf_luder_xf: (Steve x Tony)

I saw Civil War last night. Overall, I really liked it. It was a good movie. SO much better than BVS. ( I know they're not a direct comparison, but CACW tackled some themes of BVS (collateral damage) and did it 10x better.) I will say, it did not have the emotional impact of the comics, because, as we all know, the Steve/Tony friendship has never been solid in MCU. I also think Steve was my least favorite character, though at many points I did agree with his statements, and at a few points was kind of like "Tony, stop and listen!". (Clint was kind of a dick, too.) I have many thoughts, but I also feel the need to see it again before truly processing anything, which sadly won't happen until school is done in 1.5 weeks.

Did your companion actually watch the movie? I was Team Cap all the way from a philosophical standpoint, but my heart broke for Tony. He really was trying to do the right thing. That was my biggest concern going in that they'd make Tony the villain. Why was Clint a dick? And what's BVS? I keep thinking I know, but I'm tired and apparently kind of foggy.

I gave Clint a pass on that one. He was locked in a prison cell at the time.

I hated Man of Steel, so I haven't seen BVS yet. How was it?

It was Lois that ruined MOS for me. It's nice to hear that Lois and Diana are at least the saving grace of BVS.
