Title: Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings - Did Anyone See this?
Post by: BLUEVOODU on October 18, 2021, 05:00:39 PM
Did anyone see Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings??  I totally missed this movie.  I don't see anything on Disney+ yet for a release to the platform.  They also did not do a digital launch release while it was in the theaters.

I heard this movie was pretty good... pumped to check it out in the near future... whenever it hits Disney+

I think it comes out in early November. I didn't want to go into a theater to watch this so waiting for the 4K Blu-ray to release to watch it.

It’s almost out of theaters now… I was hoping to see it in theaters… but looks like we won’t make it.  Unless it stays in theaters a bit longer.  The movie looks really cool.  The trailer is pretty awesome as well.

Looks like I might just watch it this weekend on Disney+. I thought the 4K Blu-ray was coming out the same time but it's two weeks later. So the end of the month.

We just watched it on Disney+.  I thought this was really well done.   I’ll reserve more comments for after you watch it, @CreepinDeth  since @targetrasp is waiting to buy his awesome steel book.

I watched this yesterday. I thought it was a good movie. To me, and this may be just me, I guess, it really came across and felt like a Chinese kung fu movie.  :o I don't mean that in a bad way because I like a good kung fu movie. Not being familiar with the character, I just didn't expect it from the MCU hero movie thing.
There were two post credit scenes, not sure where they are going with that, found it interesting.  :-\

Thought it was great. This had some of the best fighting choreography in a superhero movie. The only movie I think is better in that regard is CA: Winter Soldier. The only thing I think that I felt wasn't good was the introduction of the villain. It's the usual trope.

I was wondering how the MCU would make this movie tie in with the rest of the MCU.  Starting with Iron Man, the rest of the collection created an investment in the characters.  Fortunately, this one did not disappoint.  I agree with Rectro that it did feel like MCU meets kung-fu in all the best ways!

I was really happy with this movie.

You know… I would love to give the creators a remake of Avatar the Last Airbender live action movies.   This movie showed what they really could’ve done with Avatar (not blue people).
