Okay, but this movie wins the award for Best Use of Manpain, tho.
In any other movie, Raleigh would’ve spent 90 minutes being like MY PAIN IS MORE IMPORTANT THAN YOUR STUPID WAR, and instead, he snaps back into action as soon as he meets Mako. That’s awesome. But what floors me is that he uses his own grief to help Mako survive hers. He knows how awful it is to lose your family. He knows what she’s going through. And instead of whining or thinking his pain makes him entitled to opt out of his responsibilities, he empathizes with Mako, supports her, and encourages her.
Raleigh’s greatest strength is his compassion. And that’s the kind of male hero I’d like to see on my screen, please.
Plus, like, a bazillion more movies about Mako Mori.
redcell6 ha dicho: I honestly didn't know much about him before your blog and I just wanted to say that you have made this nerdy kid excited to see GOTG this weekend! I always thought he was a pretty awesome villain, but your blog made me truly acquire a new found appreciation for him! Forget about the talking tree thing & Zoe Saldana being green...I can't wait to see the MAD TITAN as he unfolds his master plan to acquire THE Gems & THE Gauntlet!!!!! (your love for Thanos made me buy the Infinity Gauntlet Omnibus)
Thank you, redcell6! This is seriously one of the best asks I’ve ever gotten. I’m really happy to hear this blog did it’s job. Which is to inform people about comics and comic book characters, outside of the Batmans and the Spider-Mans. Yep, Thanos is my favorite for a reason and I’m glad to hear you bought comics related to him because of that.
I’m not gonna get my hopes up. I know Thanos isn’t the main antagonist in GotG so I don’t expect anything more than a cameo. But I am excited to get another glimpse of him and maybe a hint of things to come.
If anybody wants to read up on him before seeing the film, check out my Thanos Recommended Reading List.
