Avengers: Endgame Non-Spoiler Review

By Michael Carrell Wow… just wow… Those were the only words that my brain had the strength to muster once the credits started rolling for Avengers: Endgame. As I sat in the dimly lit theater afterwards, I just kept replaying different moments back in my mind over and over again. Key phrases and different lines of dialogue were running back through as if I kept hitting the repeat button on (insert preferred musical streaming platform here). The looks of certain characters in certain key moments of the film (and even from the more quiet moments) were burned into my memory … Continue reading Avengers: Endgame Non-Spoiler Review

Shazam Review (NO Spoilers)

By Jong Lee David F’ing Sandberg. The director of the most fun I’ve had in a theater since Thor: Ragnarok. Shazam! is Big meets Superman and it’s absolutely wonderful.

Directors Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck did a spectacular job introducing viewers to Captain Marvel. Anna, Ryan, and the rest of the crew behind the film manage to deliver on what I think many would consider the major … Continue reading Captain Marvel: Non-Spoiler Review

What Captain Marvel Means For the MCU

By Jong Lee #HigherFurtherFaster. That’s what Marvel Studio is striving for with Captain Marvel. Did it hit all the notes to take the Marvel Cinematic Universe beyond what it is at the moment, yes and no. It hit big key notes that will have you sit there and say the MCU will be ok after Iron Man, Cap (I like to think we’re friends) and Thor leave us. There were parts of the movie that left me a little unsatisfied, but those moments were few (I like to nitpick sometimes). But what does all this mean for the MCU and … Continue reading What Captain Marvel Means For the MCU
