Timing is everything, and I feel that Oculus has gotten its timing right on multiple fronts (the release of Touch for the Holidays, the release of GO during F8).

Right now Infinity Wars is taking the world by storm,
  • All-Time Opening Record of over 258-million Domestic, 640-million WorldWide
  • Shattered China Box Office Presale Records (over 47 million)

Marvel Powers United needs to get released, and stat!

    I plan to watch it for a second time this weekend. Great film, and will be watched to death once released for digital download.

    It may seem like sacrilege and I'm probably in the minority but I'm just about reaching the end of my interest in superhero movies.


    Superhero VR games though, well that's a different thing altogether, bring it on.

    Dying to see it, but the little one is still a bit young to hand off to a baby sitter, so we'll have to wait for Blu-ray like we did with Thor Ragnarok and Black Panther (coming next Tuesday).

    Also reeeeeally looking forward to Deadpool 2!

    Have you watched Infinity Wars? I get what you're saying, it's been a decade of this franchise, but seriously, you need to watch it. This is the film to retire on!

    I actually watched it by myself, because I'm in the same boat: The toddler can't watch this yet. I went to see it during lunch in the middle of the work week. Best time for solo watching!

    You have to see it! I don't talk up movies these days. I find them boring now that I'm more of a show junky. Movies barely have the ability to get me invested in their characters. But Infinity Wars...

    Playing as The Hulk is going to be so cool!!! Worth the price of admission all on its own for me personally. I used to love watching The series every Saturday in the 70s.

    Mr McGhee, don't make me angry. You wouldn't like me when I'm angry :D

    Except they are making the sequel to this film for May 2019 which is also going to be a movie that needs to be seen.

    Anyway, I concur with smelator, this is a must-see Marvel movie, totally gripping and boasting equal amounts of drama and comedy (not so OTT like Guardians 2 but just the right amount to not wear thin). I think most of the packed theater i watched it in didn't want the movie to end  (aside from most people wanting to silence the screaming brat who should have been left at home with the babysitter). Really good in 3D and perfect for playing in the Oculus Go when it releases on Blu-Ray/DVD. 

    10/10 from me.

    Oh and BP is also pretty epic as well, so enjoy that Nalex.  We've been spoilt recently, let's hope 2019 comes around with some fresh ideas.

    Infinity Wars fantastic, and unlike a "sequel" this is really part two and will pick up from exactly the point the first one ended. CANNOT WAIT ...

    My wife decided that she needed to get on the Marvel train late, so now I'm waiting for her to catch up before we can watch Infinity War; she's only seen the first 3 so far, so I have a LOOONG time to wait :disappointed:

    Though you are more than slightly incoherent, I agree with you Madam,

    alas I'm marvelled out .I just cant sit through a 3 hr film without bloody fidgeting "wanting a smoke needing the bog and a beer ect" so my mrs goes with her mates and I just wait to watch it on sky when it get released . I just find that I can pause do what I need to do then restart the movie without having to miss anything ..and saving a bloody fortune at the same time .not that I`m a fkn tight sod or anything mind !

    Yup, like I've said in another thread, going to the cinema used to be a reasonably cheap night out in the 70s and 80s. Me and my brother used to get taken out to the cinema by our parents on our birthday (we both share the same birthday - I was born on my brother's third birthday so he's exactly three years older than me) pretty often and our parents were skint when we were kids.

    Today you'd have to be worth a few quid to take a couple of kids and another parent to the cinema. That's why I don't bother going anymore. The prices these places charge plus the price of refreshments just take the piss.

    I just wait for a decent cam or screener and Bittorrent the thing if there's something I want to watch. If cinema prices were reasonable I'd go to the cinema to watch films but they've priced themselves out of that as a possibility for me.

    It's about £30 for three of us to hit the cinema these days (that's two adults and one child). But as you say, you can spend the same amount on dodgy hot dogs, chips and sweeties. Sometimes it's best to bring your own food. You can cut the costs down by joining loyalty schemes or get cashback. Yeh it's expensive when you could simply buy/burn or steal the DVD/Blu ray and watch many times over in the comfort of your own home/VR cinema. I also find UK cinema audiences to be way too "British" sometimes most of the time. I loved the attitude of Americans  when watching movies when I visited NYC. Completely different experience.

    To whoever above mentioned being bored of superhero movies, I completely agree.
    "Linear entertainment" and all that.

    Cannot wait for the MPU though. Conpletely agree that the time is ripe.  Bring it!

    Infinity Wars is not the film to be "super heroed out" by. I get the sentiment, but this aint the time to apply it lol

    It's like someone being tired of video games, and thus refusing to try VR.

    In fact, I can't even remember the last Super Hero movie that I saw in the theatres. I think the only 2 other films I saw in the theatre for the last year was BladeRunner and the Last Jedi. Both films could have waited for a Netflix or Hulu stream. Nothing to get outta bed for necessarily.

    But infinity wars? No excuses, bruhs.

    Hobbit ruined films for me. I kept seeing adult people dressed as erm hobbits.

    Now I can't stop seeing actors dressing up ugh! 
    Hence video games ftw

    I think for me, the early Iron Man, X-Men, Spider-Man and Thor movies appealed cos the stories were a little more classic and less spectacular. Every subsequent film seems to have to be bigger, more special effects, more ‘save the world’, more extreme in order to have the same pull (bit like when you watch too much porn).
    erm anyway, what I mean is the story seems to get less engaging and lost in all the action somehow.

    I think the last movie I saw in a theater was Revenge Of The Sith (under the belief that it surely couldn't be worse than the last two). :)
    And that was only because I was invited, I would have never chosen a cinema for it myself.

    I'll have to see Infinity War at some point. But I haven't seen the third Thor movie or Black Panther yet either. When they come on TV (foxtel or aus netflix) I'll give them a try. But I don't have much urgency, I wasn't a fan of Thor 1, Thor 2, or Black Panther in Civil War.

    A super hero movie that needs more attention is Black Lightning.
    No, not the tv series with the guy who can control lightning, I'm talking about the russian movie about the flying car!
    Yes, flying car. The movie is basically a beat for beat remake of Sam Raimi's Spider Man, except instead of getting spider powers it's about getting a flying car.
    Plus there's Itano Circus scenes in there!

    Of all the movies that have been released leading up to Infinity War, the only one that I would recommend someone watch first is the last Thor movie. And only because Infinity War picks up exactly where it left off (the same exact scene). Plus it was badass (Hulks best on-screen performance to-date).

    I think I might start rewatching the TV series of The Incredible Hulk again. Bill Bixby and Lou Ferigno. Awesome programme. And Lou Ferigno played a cameo in the Hulk film too.

    The Incredible Hulk, The Six Million Dollar Man, The Bionic Woman, The Invaders, Lost In Space, Land Of The Giants, The Great Egg Race, Robot Wars, The Adventure Game, Star Trek, Time Tunnel, Monkey and The Water Margin. All top quality programmes from my childhood. B)

    I used to watch most of those. :)

    You have Irwin Allen's Lost In Space, Land Of The Giants and Time Tunnel, but don't forget his earlier series: Voyage To The Bottom Of The Sea.


    A show that still holds up and I highly recommend: UFO
    Like it's sibling Thunderbirds, it's actually quite serious.
    Go back and watch Thunderbirds, each episode is closer to a serious disaster movie than a kids show.

    In fact let's do a quick compare. Have a look at the same scene in Thunderbirds and the modern remake Thunderbirds Are Go:
    The original is so much more thrilling.


    The original Battlestar Galactica still holds up too. I much prefer it to the remake.

    I wanted to get back into Space 1999, but the DVD release messed me up. The episodes were in production order, not release order, the plot was scrambled. After 3 episodes of a 2 season box set, I thought "I need to get an episode order list just to watch this? Screw that" and I haven't gone back to it. Which is a shame, I loved it as a kid.


    Anyway, yes, superhero stuff.
    The australian SyFy channel has started showing the Adam West era Batman. That's my kind of hero. I'm not a fan of the dark vigilante batman, I like the honorable role model version.
