I'll start us off;

Are there any upcoming movies coming out before 2018 ends that you really want to see?

There are some awesome movies. I'm going to rank them by my level of hype. :D
  1. Mary Poppins Returns [Dec 19]
    Like... initially hearing about it, I was skeptical. But when I found out that Lin Manuel Miranda & Emily Blunt are involved, I was sold. Plus that recent trailer was AMAZING!
  2. A Star Is Born [Oct 5]
    I'm pretty excited to see Gaga's big screen debut. It looks like it's going to be pretty good. I've heard super great things about it. The promotional song, Shallow, is pretty good. Bradley Cooper does a surprisingly good job, too.
  3. The Crimes of Grindelwald [Nov 16]
    I've always been a huge Harry Potter fan, and I love new content that builds on the world. I'm excited to see something new.
  4. Wreck It Ralph 2 [Nov 21]
    The trailers have looked super good so far. I really hope the scene with the Disney Princesses is super long and good salkdfjsadfl the crossover idea looks so good.

That's all I can think of. I hope I haven't missed anything.

Oooo good choices! I want to see all of these as well!

In addition to those, I want to also see Venom, Bohemian Rhapsody, and Bad Times @ The El Royale.

How do you feel about Venom? I’ve got mixed feelings about it with Tom Hardy as the lead personally.

I don’t have any doubts that Tom Hardy will deliver a great performance as Venom. He’s really great at playing the villain, like when he was Bane in The Dark Knight Rises.

I’m personally more worried about the writing.

Saw it yesterday! Was pretty good, although that ending was pretty lame considering it wasn’t as poignant as it could have been.

I'm actually surprised that Venom ended up beating A Star Is Born in terms of box office opening, despite the mostly negative reviews.

probably because the people who enjoyed it actually didnt put a review of it. Thats why I say, don't listen to what others say about. Watch it yourself, and then judge it, because then it would be from you. Because you could be part of that small percent that like it, but you listened to the reviews and just hated it instead. I actually havent said that before but still. Plus I wanna see Venom.

Venom was projected to bring in a whole lot more than ASIB. Venom has mostly negative critic reviews, but viewers who take the time to view it on the whole vote it as positive. I haven't seen either myself.

I never really listen to critics anyway. If there’s a movie I want to see, I’ll see it even if the critics pan it.

Now the Batman V. Superman, I agree with who said it was terriable. But i have seen other movies that had about 3 stars from these rating companies and they were great, to me at least. I say enjoy the movies you like, dont let others tell you how to feel about it, specially before you even see it.

Superhero films out grossing a Musical shouldn't even be thought about, they are different genres with different target audiences.

Yes, I understand that. All I was saying is that I was surprised.

I don't get why though? Black Panther a B-List hero at best made over a billion dollars for example.

just wait until RedBox has it, much cheaper, and if you dont like it, you only spent about $1 on it instead of about 7. (in american currency) or even just wait until netflix or something has it. Cheaper to rent it then to watch it in cinema

Sometimes watching action movies like that are funner in a theater with other people.

Theaters have gotten so expensive though :x

    Man poor DC. It's like the schmucks in Hollywood want to make Superman and their most iconic guys look stupid. WB wants to compete with MCU and that's their downfall. Get a guy who knows the characters to work on the movies. The same goes for MCU, or else you get different characterizations from the core of the character, like with Star-Lord. Not that I dislike MCU Star-Lord.

      Venom's raw power make his action scenes awesome and exciting. A pretty decent action movie, praying that Tom and Venom cross into Spiderman in the near future. What Do You think about the movie.

      The only DC movie that I have liked so far is Wonder Woman.

      Suicide Squad was a disappointment. Never liked Superman. Marvel has just produced better movies.

        The people in charge of DCEU clearly don't know what they're doing. Hire me and I assure you I'd make a better movie.

        DCAU > DCEU. If they just hired good writers like DCAU or Young Justice writers and focused on the characters, instead of trying to make a flashy blockbuster DC movie to rival Marvel.

        I enjoyed Suicide Squad, though i didnt have high expectations. For cracking jokes, DC is probably the best ones, Marvel though is better overall
