Just finished the first season.

I have to change one of my opinions. At the beginning, I thought Finn Jones was a good actor who was just given bad material, I now have to say that, while he did have his moments, he is just not the right actor for this role. Between his very weak martial arts and his....bad acting....he's just not the right fit for how they wrote Danny Rand. Hopefully he'll be better in Defenders as he'll have a different dynamic to play.

I agree.. I started to hate some of his face expressions during his series. He lacks charisma as well. I hope they "fix" him in The Defenders.

Just finished the season as well. I enjoyed it, but it's probably my least favorite of the Marvel/Netflix shows.

The kung-fu stuff is very silly at times. Isn't Danny Rand supposed to be the best martial artist in Marvel? He just jumps around and punches about, and gets kicked around a lot as well. Daredevil would kick his ass  :lol
There ain't really that much "Iron-Fisting" either. The best Iron Fist scene isn't even from Danny Rand, but from the couple of seconds of black and white footage we've shown of the old Iron Fist.

I liked the Ward character more and more during the series. Colleen Wing was probably the character i enjoyed the most (and she's not exactly painful to look at  :coolio )
The story wasn't shit. It's what saves the series. But there are TONS of plot holes and wierd twists and turns that are just...bad..

Iron Fist is one of the coolest obscure characters in the Marvel universe, so it disappoints me that they messed it up.
I've heard that they had to rush the writing and production of Iron Fist so they could release The Defenders this fall. It really shows!

The actually character of Iron Fist on this show is awful, and it probably isn't helped by the actor.

Finished the season today. I liked it. Didn't know anything at all going in so I was happy to see that the Hand was involved and it made me realize that a grand confrontation with them is probably what these Defenders shows have been building towards.

My favorite characters were the Meachum siblings, who I thought were just thoroughly interesting people with engaging stories. Other characters could be a bit frustrating at times, but other than that they were fine.

So yeah, I liked this season. Not as much as Daredevil or Jessica Jones, but loads more than Luke Cage.

Doctor Strange is on PlayStation Video for £3.50.

I might do that later. Then i'll have seen every MCU movie except Civil War.

Well that was alright. It didn't blow me away.

Not as fun as the first Iron Man but so much better than Iron man 2.

I think i'd put it on the same level as a Thor movie**. Entertaining for 2 hours and now i've seen it.

Better than a lot of Phase I but not better than anything in Phase II.




** EDIT - Actually it's about the same as Ant Man for me. An origin story with cool visuals and the new dimension at the end.

I enjoyed it.  I will watch it again.  But, yeah, I don't rate it up there very high.

I'm hoping Marvel looks at Logan and Deadpool and tries to change their game a bit.

Obviously I don't mean go R rated, since they'll never do that, nor do they need to, but make a different kind of movie. Marvel has set the bar for superhero movies, but we get it already. Not counting the two Russo brothers movies, these movies very much follow the same formula. That formula has worked for a long time, but no we have been shown that you can make different kinds of comic book movies, and I hope Marvel takes advantage of that.

We'll see, I guess, with Spiderman, Thor and Black Panther. Guardians was their own venture into something very different and it succeeded, wish they kept trying new things.

So apparently Finn Jones said that, for his fight scenes, he learned the choreography like 15 min before filming.



It showed.

I actually never noticed anything off about his fighting. I thought he was fine.

Honestly, the dude is supposed to be the master of Kung Fu. We got better fight scenes in every other Marvel Netflix show.

He wasn't awful, but he wasn't the master of Kung Fu. He wasn't Iron Fist. He knew a few moves.

Probably a case of ignorance being bliss - I can't say I know any kung fu, so wouldn't know what to look out for, but I thought he seemed pretty good.

I also hadn't interpreted it as him being the absolute best fighter in terms of strength/technique/moves/etc, but rather that he learned how to channel his inner strength (or whatever) in order to summon the Iron Fist. Might have missed something though, or again might be ignorance of the character from the comics.

Just watched episode 4 with the hallway/elevator fight. Looked pretty solid to me. I'm also not too familiar with the character, but it looks like a fun, if somewhat slow start to the show. I'm interested in the interaction with the other Defenders later on.

Also he states on multiple occasions that he hasn't finished his training. I don't recall the exact circumstances he said it but I remember hearing it a few times.

Also Mads was very under used. Apart from a couple of fisticuffs scenes - he barely did anything in the movie.
