    Finally caught Thor Ragnarok the other day. It was super fun. I had kind of given up on the whole Avengers wing of the MCU (Guardians movies aside) because they just felt so disposable, but the three I've tried out over the last 6 months of so (Winter Soldier, Black Panther, and Ragnarok) have been really fun. Was Ultron good? The trailers for Infinity Wars look pretty awesome. Is a massive catch-up in order? Are there any must sees/totally skip-able ones? Any guidance would be appreciated.

    Oh, we also did catch Dr. Strange and that was a fun way to spend a couple hours too.
    The list you threw out there of the past 3 you've tried in the past 6 months are definitely some of the better Marvel movies.  I just did a rewatch of ALL the movies and I can say Ultron was not nearly as good as any of those you had just listed.  I would highly recommend you watch Captain America Civil War if you haven't already seen it.  Easily my favorite Marvel movie to date.

    So Avengers Age of Ultron is not the greatest movie but I think it is definitely needed in order to understand the direction they are going.  Watch this movie before you watch Captain America Civil War.  I hope this helps some and feel free to direct message me if you have any questions or want to know any specifics. 

    The most important thing to know about Infinity War is the importance of the Infinity Stones that have been brought up in the various movies.  Ultron is somewhat important because of this plus it has an introduction to one of the "new" Avengers character.  I would skip Thor Dark World solely because the movie was horrible.  I would also say skip Iron Man 3 as it's not vitally important and you'll get the main importance of it from Captain America Civil War. 
  • You know you’re addicted to Bald Move when...

    ... when you've re-watched entire shows just to hear the Bald Move coverage of said show.

    ... when your friends tell you that you may have too much of an obsession with "those 2 guys you always listen to."

    ... when you slow down a binge watch of a show just because you're not caught up with the Bald Move coverage.

    ... when you're excited to go into work only because you get to listen to Bald Move coverage of whatever show/movie/podcast.

    Reading that above comment back, I see it sounds a bit judgy, but what I’m trying to say is maybe we non-Americans should not be involved in this discussion because we don’t have the connection to the issues America does, and we don’t understand it. I don’t think anyone in this conversation is an irrational person or a “gun nut”, and I hope that comes across. 
    Personally I value yours and anyone else from outside the states thoughts and opinions on the matter just as much as anyone.  I think it's beneficial hearing the perspective from somebody that doesn't have these issues that we have and are looking at it from a different perspective.

    My family owns land and hunt deer and a variety of birds so I've been around guns all my life.  I've been on numerous trap shooting leagues with my family. There's a serious problem happening but there is no easy solution to that problem.  It's a culmination of a lot of things that have gone unchecked for too long.
