Avengers: Endgame Review

by

*Spoiler free review*

Do not go into this film with any preconceived ideas or predictions of how things will turn out because it would do you no good.

Avengers: Endgame is the biggest awaited film in Marvel cinematic history over the past ten years. It is rightfully so for many reasons. Marvel and the Russo brothers, alongside its impeccable actors, have again created a film that leaves you in shambles.

This is an accumulation of events and stories of a long awaited journey that, for many, have been there since the beginning. The film had its hilarious scenes that at moments have you surprised they even came out of certain characters’ mouths. Compared to previous films, Endgame took a different turn in having scenes that seemed out of character and had one liners that felt as if they came from Tumblr.

There are fight scenes that had the theater cheer in absolute shock and joy because they never expected them to happen. Although, it did feel like there was something missing. You can’t quite put your finger on it, but something felt off and if you get over the excitement, you might notice it too.

Overall, the film was great. It’s a film that has been hyped for months and has been anticipated since the first Avengers. It’s the end of a journey; for who, I won’t say. You can cry your eyes out about that yourselves. But, the film had its good moments, its incredible heart stopping moments and its moments that felt like they were appeasing the fans.

The film marks a new shift in the Marvel universe and its future going forward and it certainly did that.

The bigger question is, what now?

Celebrate Marvel Cinematic Universe’s 10th Anniversary with Marvel Studios 10th Anniversary Film Festival

by

For the first time ever, Marvel is re-releasing all twenty of their MCU films to IMAX. In celebration of the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s 10th anniversary, you can enjoy the Marvel Studios 10th Anniversary Film Festival between August 30th and September 6th at an IMAX theater near you. MCU has made 13.5 billion dollars worldwide (and counting), which speaks to just how many fans are going to want tickets for the IMAX event. Marvel announced the event Friday, with Marvel stars appearing in a video to get everyone hyped. Some of the Marvel films were never released in IMAX theaters. The MCU films The Incredible Hulk, Captain America: The First Avenger and Iron Man are appearing in IMAX for the first time. You know what that means? That means that this could be your only chance.

The Details of the Marvel Studios 10th Anniversary Film Festival

Running from August 30th to September 7th, each of the twenty films appearing at IMAX will have at least one showtime. The festival will close with two fan favorites selected by public voting. Voting for the final day is open now until September 6th.  If you want to make sure your favorite  MCU film is shown on the 7th, get to voting! You can purchase tickets to one or more of the film showings on Fandango. This is the first time IMAX will be screening all Marvel films. However, you may remember that Marvel recently held a movie marathon of 12 MCU films right before the release of Avengers: Infinity War. Their previous marathon was less widespread, appearing only at AMC theaters in Orlando and New York City.

Avengers: Infinity War Review

by

DISCLAIMER: Due to request from Infinity War directors, The Russo Brothers, and out of respect for the fans of the Marvel universe, this review will contain no spoilers.

Marvel Studios has been able to create a film that leaves you gobsmacked in your seat from beginning to end. There isn’t a moment in Avengers: Infinity War where your eyes do not widen and leave you gasping for breath. I do have to acknowledge that the film is everything we had hoped for from one of the most renowned cinematic companies in the world. But the film also leaves a lot to the imagination. Whether that is good or not is up for you to decide, especially if you are a diehard Marvel fan.

The evil villain of Thanos is perhaps one of the greatest antagonists I have seen on the Marvel screen. He makes you believe in his power and magnitude to a point you really start to worry for your beloved superheroes’ safety. So much so, you become convinced this is the end of all life as we know it. How can you not be afraid of a purple thumb-looking villain that holds the capability of destroying the universe with his fist the size of my torso?

Avengers: Infinity War brings together our beloved heroes for the biggest fight of the universe we’ve been waiting for. Traveling between different dimensions and galaxies will make fans clap their hands with glee while the nonstop heroism and fight sequences make you want to kick some serious ass. To top it off, the snarky bouts of comedy provides a good hearty laugh and comedic relief. Staring at a bearded Steve Rogers and the biceps of Thor isn’t so bad either!

Leaving the theatre I was happy, but not exactly satisfied. Since this review contains no spoilers, I will not explain why I felt this way. In an all honestly it is quite hard to understand how to feel about the film. Avengers: Infinity War is everything we could have possibly dreamed of, but leaves fans with more questions than answers. It makes you wonder what is to come. Fans of the Marvel Universe are not mentally prepared for what’s in store for them. Despite this, the film was worth the anticipation. All that’s left to wonder is, where do we go from here?

WAKANDA FOREVER!

Oh, and stay for the post credit scene: it will blow your mind.

Five Superhero Films We Can’t Wait to See

by

Almost 30 superhero films have been announced for release over the next five years, and this is my nerd dream come true. Between Marvel (my favorite) and DC (catching up), there isn’t a dearth of stories to tell on both the small screen (most of the shows that I adore) and the big. This year has seven superhero films set for release, with the first hitting theaters February 12. Here are five superhero films we can’t wait to see.

Deadpool (February 12)
This is the R-rated superhero film I’ve been waiting for. Ryan Reynolds is redeeming himself after the awful Green Lantern by playing this foul-mouthed, violent, wickedly dark-humored mercenary hellbent on revenge. Reynolds played the same character in X-Men Origins: Wolverine, but we’ve never seen him like this before.

Captain America: Civil War (May 6)
Be still, my broken heart. This movie pits my two favorite superheros (Captain America and Iron Man) against each other, and I can’t handle this pressure. And each has his own superhero team with more of my favorites, so I’m honestly broken. Also exciting? We’ll get our first look at Black Panther and the new Spider-Man (still wish it was Andrew Garfield) in the movie.

X-Men: Apocalypse (May 27)
The X-Men are back for the third film in the prequel trilogy, and this time, the film includes (love of my life) Oscar Isaac as the extremely powerful first mutant, Apocalypse, come to, well, destroy the world. Bringing back favorite cast members like Michael Fassbender, Jennifer Lawrence, and James McAvoy reprising their roles, the film also introduces younger versions of mutants like Storm.

Suicide Squad (August 5)
Villains as heroes—this is pretty much the premise of the Suicide Squad. The team consists of high-profile villains like the Joker, Harley Quinn, and Deadshot, and the story goes that these villains have been caught by the government and are being used to do their bidding. Micro-bomb implants prevent them from going off the rails, because they will be killed. I’m excited to see Jared Leto’s take on the Joker, as well as the rest of the brilliant cast.

Doctor Strange (November 4)
I didn’t know much about Doctor Strange before this movie was announced, but I’m excited to see this magical superhero come to life. With a cast that consists of Rachel McAdams, Benedict Cumberbatch, Mads Mikkelsen, and Chiwetel Ejiofor, I have a feeling it’ll be great.
And here’s a shout out to the two that didn’t make the list, though I know I’ll be seeing them both anyway: Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice (March 25) and Gambit (October 7).
