Really no growth at all? You watched a completely different movie.Oh and I stand by my statement that these movies have just as much focus on the characters as the star wars movies.
I think here is the difference between us and why I can't explain these things to you. You go into these movies looking for something to hate so you can go online and tell everyone they are idiots for liking these movies. I go in looking to have a good time. that doesn't mean I turn my brain off but it also doesn't mean that I go in with a chip on my shoulder. yes Tony was unlikable and yes Thor had a lesson to learn. In story telling that is called an arc. if you think character growth should never happen and every character should be 100% perfect and not undergo any growth or changes then Yeah I guess these movies are not for you. Also if you need someone to pretend to be human and bumble around a hospital to see their humanity then I feel sorry for you. Thor's alter ego wasn't needed for the story to work so they didn't ad a half hour of screen time to the movie for it. You also seem to have personal hatred of some of the actors so ago I can't help you with your personal grudges. Oh and I have yet to read any tie in novels or any comics and I saw growth. Oh and history isn't self contained,everything that has ever happens leads to the next thing that happens,so now stories are evolving to reflect that. Each movie does tell it's own story but there are links to other stories,that doesn't make it bad story telling. Henry V mentions events and characters that happened in Henry IV parts one and two,does that mean Shakespeare was a hack. I have watched these movies with people who haven't seen the other ones and they are able to follow them just fine. Why just today I saw CATWS with someone who hadn't seen CA and he had no trouble following anything that was going on it the movie.
Look we are never going to agree so why don't you just ignore these movies since you were never going to like them in the first place? why watch something you don't want to watch?
I just got back from CATWS and all I can say is wow. I don't want to spoil anything for anyone but if you are an inbred moron who needs to be shot to keep his or her genes out of the gene pool and you like these movies like me then these movie is just an unbelievable game changer. It was the most intense and personal of the movies so far and I can't wait to see what happens in this universe next. I really hope we get a Nick Furry movie because after the way this movie ended I really want to see a whole movie that is about him on his own. oh and I now can not wait for Tuesdays episode of AOS. In short I am enjoying the heck out of the marvel cinematic universe and if that makes me an inbred idiot who can't find his own backside with both hands a flashlight and a map well then I guess you can call me one but I am what I am and I can't be anything else. So I guess you should just avoid me because I am too stupid to live and I will not pretend to hate something I enjoy just to look smarter.
