WARNER BROS: here's a 4-hour Justice League.

Me: Stop over-indulging directors, get better editors.

WARNER BROS: Here's Godzilla v Kong in under 120 minutes.

Me: no not like that
Initial verdict: humans continue to be appropriately useless, the actual fights live up to the hype especially Round 2, with a fun new Conan-inspired take on the Kong story.

Needed another half hour, more big G and Hollow Earth, ending feels focus-grouped.
There is only one kaiju movie where puny humans have any right to be the main characters.
I'd say 10 more minutes of KvG, 5 more minutes of exposition on a few plotlines/world-building, and 5 more respective minutes of each heavy duking it out with the military and other kaiju to hype the title bout.
If I'm anchoring a final chapter to this franchise I put Guillermo Del Toro, Gareth Edwards, and Hideaki Anno in a room to script and storyboard an operatic 150 minute remake of Destroy All Monsters.

Wow, weird how his fantasy tracks exactly with what Roland Bourgeois was telling himself and others as he shot Black people fleeing post-Katrina New Orleans. huffpost.com/entry/roland-b…
But no I think it's great that after losing John McCain that Lindsey Graham found a new best friend in the form of a yellowing, coffee ringed Ron Paul newsletter.
They are objectively pro-climate change as a rapture backup plan

Once again. So absolutely thrilled he can't tweet.
Five people fucking died. Cops got stabbed, crushed, maced, eyes gouged. A wannabe bomber is still on the loose. Among the recent arrests are a Trump appointee, a Neo-Nazi with a security clearance (and a Hitler stache!), plus a CIA contractor who speared a cop with a metal pole.
All of them spurred to throw their lives away committing obvious felonies because Trump told them he'd be marching with them.

Or, hear me out, you could just ask even a single question about the thing still killing a thousand Americans a day.
Take even one L. Try it.
I'd absolutely be saying this same thing if Trump were Prez. Like, why the hell wouldn't I?

Total bullshit. Tons of people, self included, didn't buy the case Bush was making about nukes, anthrax, mobile biolabs, ties to 9/11. They pushed those flimsy, fraudulent claims so people would buy idea that decade-long strategy of sanctions, DMZs, inspections was insufficient.
'everyone thought he had WMD' was the copout Karl Rove came up with once it was clear none would be found. No one but them was said Saddam was training Al Qaeda. No one but them said Mohammed Atta was an Iraqi spy. No one but them said Saddam had drones to spray the East Coast.
Most people thought Saddam had some chemical weapons stores leftover from the 80s (and he kinda did!) The Bush admin told the world Saddam was an evil genius who had a high-tech, totally covert Manhattan project that was going to make Osama Bin Laden a nuclear power.

Watching the cut that dare not speak its name in installments.

So far it seems the principle contributions Wh3don made to the theatrical release were to cut out a lot of black & asian actors (including some playing major DC characters!) and find pervier ways to film Gal Gadot.
This whole endeavor... from mediocre, slapdash theatrical releases to overlong but otherwise satisfying director's cuts... has been a lesson that the real heroes of Hollywood are competent editors, not indulgent auteurs.
James Wan absolutely fixed Aquaman, though. 'Just let him speak underwater, it's fine!'

"names match" means literally nothing. If they were the actual people, they'd be loudly bragging that they'd caught them. Not quietly telling congress to then leak on background to frigging Axios.
International terrorist groups like ISIS don't bother with stuff like this. They recruit off the internet. They want people who already have citizenship who can use those rights and privileges to get guns, bank accounts and passports.
Indeed the most egregious recent case of a foreign terror suspect crossing illegally into the United States was a Neo-Nazi who was smuggled across the CANADIAN border. winnipeg.ctvnews.ca/fbi-arrest-for…
