  1. I was rooting for John Walker to get his revenge the whole way through falcon and the winter soldier. I was really hoping he’d beat up falcon and Bucky in the warehouse cause the way they confronted him after his mental breakdown to take the shield instead of you know calming him down and then worrying about the shield later was absurd. Sam was willing to negotiate and have a peaceful talk with a Karli, a literal terrorist, but not a war veteran suffering from PTSD who had just watched his friend get murdered in front of him.

  2. Superman. Lex Luthor is merely trying to get ahead of a ultra powerful fascist alien. Super man happens to prefer good. Good is relative as frank miller showed us. Imagine superman under trumps control instead of Reagan. Lex was right.

  3. Marley and Me. Not being sarcastic or edgy. The filmmakers worked too hard to make you think of the dog as so cute and lovable but I was just relieved when the annoying thing died.

  4. Both Spider-Man: Homecoming and Far From Home.

    The MCU version of Spider-man isn’t “your friendly neighborhood Spider-Man”. He’s a billionaire’s union busting sugar baby. Both movies had antagonists that were an everyman who was wrong by either the government or a major corporation and just wanted to get what was theirs. Their methods weren’t the most agreeable but their goals were not wrong.
