    I love action movies and super-hero comics, but I have a hard time watching recent super-hero movies. My major nitpick is that the editing of the fighting scenes is so fast that I barely understand what is going on. This is especially true in the Avengers movies because there are lots of characters and a lot of fights happening at the same time.

    I had a similar problem with Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt: good show, too many jokes per second (jps™).

    Maybe I'm getting old.

      Surely it's not that bad? In the first Avengers alone you have two fantastic fight scenes with long shots (one of which actually is a long shot, for the most part) in the forest fight between Cap/Thor/Tony and the Battle for NY.

        The first Avengers is alright, my issue started with Ultron and Infinity is the worst offender.

          That's a fair point. Infinity War is definitely the most guilty.

            One consequence of excessively "modern" editing is a loss in dramatic power. The sense of epic is diminished. The fighting scene at the end of 1976s Rocky is thrilling to this day. Other examples...

            One consequence of excessively "modern" editing is a loss in dramatic power. The sense of epic is diminished. The fighting scene at the end of 1976s Rocky is thrilling to this day. Other examples are Redbelt and Attack on Titan. In Pacific Rim, the Kaijus have weight, you feel their blows. Fighting scenes must take physicality into account. This is something people like Joel Schumacher don't understand: if you take drama, time and weight out of the equation, fighting ceases to be about the confrontation between characters, and what you get is nothing but mindless shapes and colors changing positions and connecting with each other.

    Anyone know if the white uniforms near the end have any comic-continuity relevance?
