Being a fan isn't all about gushing and worshipping every part of a franchise. One is allowed to use one's critical faculties as well. This is a discussion thread, not an appreciation thread. Criticism of the film is allowed here. There is nothing disrespectful about just posting one's opinion, however "negative" it might be. But it is disrespectful to try to shut down people for posting an opinon you don't agree with. That sort of behavior is what leads to internet cliques and growing internet bigotry and ultimately to people like Donald Trump getting elected. Intolerance of different opinions leads to intolerance of different sorts of people and soon we all end up in a bad spot. As for the question of who is a "true fan", that's a classic example of the crazy edge of fandom thinking. Nobody has a right to say who is a true fan or not. As it stands, myself and my co-mod, both of whom disike this film, have extensive experience with the Marvel comics that inspired the MCU films. As such, we know what we're talking about. We've got as much right to be considered "true fans" as anybody else. Personally I don't like the way the MCU films are developing, but I've enjoyed some of them and I've seen all of them, so I've got as much right to express my opinion here as anyone.

Looking back over this thread, I find myself wondering what you're fussing over, at least as regards my posts. I posted ONE post, count it, one, that was negative. The other post was merely to say that the first film was better. And even the "negative" post was hardly a case of "not saying anything positive at all." I praised the cast and I mentioned a number of MCU films that I thought might be good or that I was looking forward to. Hardly nothing positive. But I think the common usage of the terms "negative" and "positive" on these boards is misguided. The true negative is trying to shut down minority opinion and the true positive is expressing serious opinions carefully thought-out.

As regards my so-called negative post about the film, I'd finally seen the film and wanted to express my opinion. Is that so hard to understand? And now that I've expressed my opinion, I don't feel a great need to discuss the film further on this thread, unless somebody insists on dragging me into a back-and-forth debate on the topic.

Let's all try to get along, with tolerance for different viewpoints.

I never said that it isn't allowed to say anything negative at all. All I'm asking is to say atleast something postive too. I have seen some posts here from you and your co-mod. And alot of them are negative. So I was talking as a whole and not just this post. It is obvious that you are not a fan of the MCU movies and loves the comics more. Which is really good for you..

This is were I end this and won't bring it up more. It is Christmas for me in Sweden. And I just want to enjoy the day now. Merry Christmas to you!

I haven't bought the DVD either. They'll do another collector's set for Phase 3 so I think I'll just wait for that to get all the movies. I have the first two collector's set.

I usually buy them as soon as they come out, I don't have the patience to wait for those sets.
