It was a whole lot of fun putting this movie together. It was great how they recreated Los Angeles in 1977. Excellent performances by Ryan Gosling (Holland March), Russell Crowe (Jackson Healy) and especially by young actress Angourie Rice (Holly March), who I was not familiar with before this movie, but sure will in the future. Excellent screenplay and direction. The one error I saw in this movie was a billboard of Jaws 2, which was not released until June 1978.
The civil war begins with Captain America and Iron Man causing a political rift. Captain America/Steve Rogers (Chris Rogers) doesn’t want to sign the Anti-Hero Registration, a law that limits his actions. but Iron Man/Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) wants to sign knowing there are actions because he doesn’t want more cities to be destroyed. I liked it when they were going against each other because the sequence was humorous and the jokes were hilarious. So Captain America thought the world is daring enough where you can’t rely on the government to protect this world.
The Family you love is back. An unexpected wedding between Gus (Nichael Constantine) and Maria (Lainine Kazan) is about to happen because they find out they were never married in the first place. Paris (Elena Kampouris) parents Toula (Nia Vardalos) and Ian (John Corbett) are having marriage problems and whatever happens the rest of the Portokalos’s make it their problem. A big mess. Have a Baklava at our Greek Restaurant and you will feel a lot better.
The two superheroes are fighting Clark Kent/Superman (Henry Cavill) and Bruce Wayne/Batman (Ben Affleck) because Superman feels that he let down the people of Metropolis cause of the constant struggling against General Zod (Michael Shannon) and now the citizens are routing for Batman to win. Wonder Woman/Diana Prince (Gal Gadot) does a great job in this role. This movie is not based on the comic book version because they have Batman use guns to kill people because of that this movie let me down and I was speechless.
The four outsiders of these high-financiers from Michael Burry (Christian Bale), Jared Vennett (Ryan Gosling), Mark Baum (Steve Carell), and Ben Rickert (Brad Pitt) all of them predicted the credit and housing bubble collaspe of the mid-2000’s decided to go against the big banks unfortunately the banks lack of foresight and greed prevailed and most of the homeowners suffered in this tragic era. (I wish Adam Mckay the director of this movie and the writer could have made it more balanced meaning to show the other side of how individual homeowners kept on buying more homes, more cars, and lavish boats in this downturn which made some in Wall Street pretty well of also).
