It makes up for his problematic pre-fame online presence, which he has since used the "I was young, angry, and stupid" defense. Honestly, that's probably the best defense.

That "article" was almost literally his tweets and the the author retyping them. CNN and their editors should be ashamed of themselves. Someone got paid for that.

At least they're Tweets from someone we've heard of addressing a relevant and important topic. It's still a garbage example of journalism, but at least it's better than the usual version of this:

ONCE BELOVED TOM HANKS NOW HATED BY INTERNET
Tom Hanks has been frequently named one of the most trusted and well-liked celebrities on the planet, but his former popularity may have officially ended today. In a shocking Tweet that must have stunned his six followers, a Twitter user going by the name sassbanana612 wrote this:

"Finaly wached dat movie were Tom Hanks talkd to volleybal and NO THANX TO HANX wit no shirt on!! Totle Bonerkiller!!"

Tom Hanks was rendered speechless by the online community's sudden turn against him. Or at least his representatives have yet to respond to our requests for comment. Probably means the same thing, right?

Yup, been there, been that dumb. I'm inclined to be forgiving of people willing to admit that because I hope others will forgive me.

Captain America and Black Widow in Winter Soldier. Partially inside the bus, mostly outside.

Though weren't both the Captain Marvel and Spider-Man fights train fights, not bus fights? (Unless you mean Far From Home rather than Spider-Man 2, in which case, yeah, bus.)

As much as I wanted to like Shang Chi, it was somehow worse than Black Panther and he seemed kind of wimpy. He isn't powerful, the rings are.

Perhaps, or perhaps he found he likes a lot of money and a little fame. He called China a third world starving country in 2017, revealed last year, right before Shang Chi came out. China didn't like that so Mr Mouse didn't like that.

I'm being cynical here, but actors learn quickly that their acting job isn't limited to screen and film. Good message, but I'm looking at like a GI JOE after school PSA for adults.

the money is in the banana stand: He isn't powerful, the rings are.


You could say the same about Iron Man, Ant-Man, War Machine, and a whole bunch of others. Technology or magic tech powers a lot of heroes.

Besides, when he kicked much ass on the bus, and again at the club, and again at the village, he did so without the rings. He didn't get them until the very end of the movie. Almost all the ass-kicking he did was as a normal dude.

That's pretty powerful.

Was thinking of Far From Home.  You're right about CM, mis-remembered.  I think it was an elevated train.

Maybe there's a broader public transportation pattern?

I've seen a lot of bus fight scenes, A LOT, and I wouldn't have thought a Marvel movie could add much to that type of scene after Captain Marvel showed a relatively tame one. This movie's bus fight was awesome though. It was peak bus fight.

If you were an actress in a marvel film, wouldn't it be wise to keep your mouth shut about your anti vaccine beliefs. Marvel is owned by Disney and they are an absolute behemoth. The check you would be getting for your next major Marvel film would be enough to put your kids and grandkids through college. But I guess thinking isn't part of their strong suit, hence their public antivaxx stance.

When he was scrapping on the bus, he held his own with no rings.

The movie, to me, was strong until the CGI shiat-show at the end, which melted my eyeballs.

I'm looking forward to more Shang Chi.

Bus/train fights have the advantage of close quarters, where it's kinda believable one person can take on more. Daredevil had a lot of hallway fights, and they were awesome. You only get stuff like the airport fight when it's a bunch of characters on each side, and they kind of swap off who they're fighting.

Personally, I want more Falcon/Winter Soldier/Spiderman interaction. Falcon getting annoyed at the wise-cracking kid who just would not shut up while holding his own against them was probably my favorite part of the movie.

Just got the BluRay disc and yesterday watched it and the extra features. The bus fight and the bamboo scaffolding fight were described as an homage to both Jackie Chan and Buster Keaton, using the space and the objects within it as important elements of the fight. One of the principal fight coordinators used to be a stuntman for Jackie Chan.

/this is why I always watch the extra features and the director's commentary for almost all movies that I own on physical media.
