I don't like the fantasy genre.(only fantasy - nothing to classify it further into sub genre which are totally different movies)

 

I think the ones like hobbit, lord of the rings, Narnia should be fantasy adventure (you all liking these movies should have a better name for it)

 

 

 

While the ones like 300, clash of the titans, troy also come under fantasy but historical or mythological fantasy which I very much like.

But both are fantasy.

Gladiator might be historical drama.

 

 

So you are just going by their names being similar and not understanding the concept and that they are completely different movies and made by and for different people.

 

 

 

 

300 and Troy is historical fiction

Clash of titans is action fantasy

Gladiator is historical drama/fiction.

 

So yeah, I do know about genres....but then you think John Wick is a bland movie and dhan dhana dhan is GOAT, so I digress.

Cho Chang. 🤢 

 

Game was awesome though. 

 

Never played the game, didn't have money for a console back then.

 

You can't deny Umbridge is the best minor antagonist in the entire series. Plus the elements of Dumbledore vs Ministry, Formation of the Order, The DA, and that whole episode with Neville and his gran at St Mungo's, but thats only in the book but easily an amazing sub-plot which pushes Neville as a character, and fighting Bellatric and the killing the final Horcrux in the last movie, it was pretty great.

 

As far as Cho Chang goes, I like Ginny but hey in the books she's a fearless badass but in the movies she's super timid.

My point ^^

Fantasy and Fiction aren't interchangeable, especially considering fantasy is split into high fantasy, where even the world is fictional, and low fantasy which is fictional elements in the real world.

Well you might be wrong for one in saying that it is not fantasy at all.


300 is indeed fantasy as well.
(Fiction is a very broad word)

Not saying you are wrong in marking it as historical fiction but historical fantasy suits more for me and isn't wrong to classify it as one.




And yes, I do have a personal preference as opposed to liking every trending thing on the market.


But you care so much for such a long away post of me liking a particular movie and not liking another [emoji14]


So another one for you if you do again feel the need to mention it in future posts along with dhan dhana dhan (along with glorifying the statement as well : GOAT, all I said it was underrated and later understood some of other people's points and changed it to a personal guilty pleasure movie which I still like)

and John wick :

I dislike every marvel movie made this decade, find the jokes and repeated entry scenes frustrating and the plot very uninteresting, haven't watched more than half of them probably.

(Last marvel movie I enjoyed would be Spiderman 1 and 2 - the ones with Tobey Maguire)

So basically you will categorize movies as you please and also be a edgelord.

 

You deserve a custom title for this, IVG's Roger Ebert

Mah n****..

The only othet person on IVG, i guess, who enjoyed Order of the phoenix game.

 

Was the first game on my Ps3 in 2008 :wOOtjumpy:

 

Exploring Hogwarts was so good. 

 

They should remake/remaster all HP games. Will be amazing with new tech.

I don't like Umbridge but I guess that was the point. Dislike the antagonist. There were surely some good parts but also bad. 

 

From story point - Azkaban and Chamber for me.

From fun point - Goblet of Fire and Order of the Pheonix. 

 

Not a fan of Cho or Ginny. Lovegood all the way. 72uBLgI.gif

You are not alone if that helps. Most of the Marvel movies sucked and even more so on multiple viewings. The biggest letdown was Endgame! 

 

Also, fiction is too wide and loose term. Majority of movies are fiction but not fantasy. 300 is indeed Historical fantasy. There are lot of sub-genre under fantasy.

After seeing how most franchises ruin their finales, Endgame was a great conclusion. It's not easy wrapping up so many plot lines and arcs, Star Wars and GoT both failed at that.

People always say Black Panther was amazing, it was decent story-wise but that fancy tech was going a bit too far honestly

It is extremely hard to maintain so many characters over a decade. I just didn't find Endgame good as conclusion. Got bored half way. It wasn't bad as SW, I'll give you that.

I don't think the LoTR books(or movies) are the best in fantasy anymore, but Tolkien formed the basis of all high-fantasy literature so I don't deny their importance at any rate. 

 

No, Tolkien is still the master. LOTR is still absolutely amazing, and the way it's written - it will evoke tons of emotions in you. But if you really want to see Tolkien's true mastery, you have to read the other works of Middle Earth by Tolkien, namely The Silmarillion and The Unfinished Tales (Individual Stories in those have their own books as well). These are the works on the First Age of Middle Earth (Lord of the Rings takes place in the Third Age) Silmarillion starts with the Ainulindale and "Of the Valar" which provides context, but after this, every story is master-piece after master-piece. No other modern authors have yet to even compare to what Tolkien achieved. The Tales of the First Age like "The Children of Hurin", "Beren and Luthien", "Fall of Gondolin" etc. will make other writers like Sanderson, Rothfuss (Always felt he was over-rated), Martin etc. look like children.

 

You really should read those, if you are a fan of fantasy. To me, other than the epics and Arthurian Legends etc. these are the actual pinnacle of modern day fantasy.

Hmmm yeah I've heard of both. And no offense, as per most Youtubers I watch, modern authors are better (Tolkien is still the gangsta) but I like what Sanderson and Rothfuss do, I dont think he's overrated personally. Tolkien is cool, but its just my opinion that there is better stuff out there. Plenty of books on my TBR, if I do get time I will check out the Silmarillion. 

 

For me, what Sanderson is doing with The Stormlight Archives is the tippity top of fantasy. NO offense honestly, there is a just a slight difference in opinion. I love the LoTR movies as a kid, still feel amazing when I watch them now.
