But you're saying MoS does compared to Avengers. Before we go further I know you did because the choices were MoS or Avengers and you said Avengers was a distant second.
Now that that's clarified, let's continue dissecting your 'argument' shall we? Your replies are bolded
and mine are in italics
to make it easy.
You said Avengers, in comparison to MoS had "pedestrian pacing"
I then asked you to explain your point.
You said "Pedestrian as in commonplace, unoriginal."
I asked a series of questions. "I still don't know what you mean... how is this action movie's pacing more commonplace or unoriginal than A) any other action movie and; B) more commonplace or unoriginal than MoS? and; C) Where is MoS superior?"
You never responded and totally avoided the question. You can CLEARLY see both points B and C relate to MoS.
And then you said "I can't help you grasp the definition of unoriginal" Which I am quite familiar with... your replies fall into the category.
I then explained my profession and asked again "What I don't know is how you think MoS had pacing that was MORE original than any other action movie."
That would include Avengers.
And now we're here... with you insulting my profession and still
not explaining your point.

Based on your lack of reply to some very simple questions I often wonder why is it so many people on forums have such piss poor reading comprehension. Maybe the BC school system failed you.
Am I using bigger words than you are comfortable with? Should I write at a lower level to help you understand the questions? Should I reword them (yet again) using easier words to simplify them?
How can I

Not everyone is capable of being a teacher. We have to wade through many shit writings by people who THINK they are smart yet don't answer the simple questions that were put in front of them. Sound familiar?
It takes patience to be a teacher (such as me showing how you're avoiding answering simple questions)
and accusing me of straw man arguments when you can plainly see it was a part of a series of questions in relation to your initial point.

Yet it seems you do.
You say "Not this god who can't keep his thralls in check and not this army that cruises downtown New York until it's time for them to be attacked/defeated."
Yet if you knew Norse mythology you'd know Loki is almost always at fault for his own plans failing. Whedon did a great job of incorporating this aspect of his character from myth to movie.
But what would I know? I'm, only a teacher......................
Ntikrst wrote:Holy FUCK, are you hostile!
I don't think you know what hostile means.
Because if you did you would see your post is teeming with hostility from insulting my profession to swearing to 'yelling' by using all caps.

Sometimes we use it to combat stupidity too....

A fortune teller too!
How did you know MoS would be faced with such earth shattering challenges?
Ntikrst wrote:you preferred Avengers, I preferred MoS.
You finally got something right!

No, I don't prefer the Silver Age formula (though I see some benefits to it I also see drawbacks). I much prefer the modern style of comic.
... your fortune teller skills don't translate to mind reading...
And you haven't read much Golden Age have you?
