    I haven’t watched it yet, but… an hour and a half and it’s only Part 1?!?! Wow. If part 2 is similar in length, the critique will be longer than the film itself!

    …I propose a new series that critiques movie critiques: Really That Long. 🙂

    I completely understand why you do not or cannot want do LOTR. How much patreon donations would you require, to ensure the viability of that project?

    Great episode Bob! Plenty to agree on, obviously, but I really want to highlight your closing point.

    I’m right there with you in my love of superhero movies and your point that they’re a way to get your heroic narrative without the historic baggage is really well observed. I think we need to add something to really drive the point home though. Because they are fictional they also give us a chance to imagine a real world that’s significantly better than the world we live in. A case in point, Wakanda in Civil War is a straightforwardly modern black African nation that is both technologically advanced and politically powerful and nobody does this fact the injustice of bothering to explain it, making the subversive power of that fantasy even more powerful by making just making it a normal part of its better than real world.

    So superhero films can be powerful fantasies not just by allowing us to imagine idealised people, but also by allowing us to imagine an idealised world and making it everyday.
