Movie review: “Avengers: Endgame”

Avengers: Endgame is the satisfying culmination to Marvel Studios’ 11-year, 22-movie experiment that changed the movie landscape. That it succeeds isn’t a surprise — Marvel has filtered and refined its formula to a degree that even its weakest performers have the kind of box office performance that most can only dream of. The real surprise … Continue reading

Movie review: “Avengers: Infinity War”

There’s almost no point in writing a review of Avengers: Infinity War; Marvel’s über-ambitious movie juggernaut has built momentum behind itself for 18 movies over the course of a decade, and moviegoers made their decision whether or not to see it some time ago. Let’s be honest: all you really want to know is if … Continue reading

Movie review: “The Avengers: Age of Ultron”

The Law of Diminishing Returns hasn’t yet caught up with the Marvel Cinematic Universe — which is no mean feat given that it is It’s eleven movies in, with another eleven looming on the horizon. That said, there is some strain showing along the bulging seams of The Avengers: The Age of Ultron. Writer-director Joss … Continue reading

Movie review: ‘The Avengers’

Highly anticipated by fanboys and casual moviegoers alike ever since it was alluded to in a post-credits  tag in Iron Man four years ago, The Avengers is a glorious combination of action, comic book adventure, and four-color character drama that not only lives up to the loftiest of expectations, it stomps them flat and raises the bar … Continue reading

‘The Avengers’ New International Trailer

On the heels of last week’s release of a full-length trailer for the mega-anticipated The Avengers comes yet another teaser, this time a two-minute trailer for the German market featuring two scenes not included in ads here stateside. (Downside: They’re dubbed in German.) Go nuts here.

New ‘Avengers’ trailer, ‘Prometheus’ viral clip

It’s a good day to be a geek: Marvel released another, flashier trailer for The Avengers, featuring plenty of screentime for each of Earth’s mightiest heroes and some nice action shots, including the Hulk footage that’s largely been missing from previous promos. It still keeps the identity of the alien menace secret for now. On top … Continue reading

Movie review: “Spider-Man: Far From Home”

Spider-Man: Far From Home isn’t just a post-Avengers: Endgame coda for the MCU mega-experiment, it’s the palate cleanser we need after the past few months of superhero movies, one that cleverly manages to tell a simpler, more personal story against the colossal backdrop of the Marvel movie universe. It begins eight months after the events of Endgame, … Continue reading

Movie review: “Dark Phoenix”

Dark Phoenix represents not so much the end of an era as it does a mercy killing, and the late Fox Studios X-Men franchise ends with sound and fury punctuated by a fizzle. AIt makes more of an attempt to adapt Chris Claremont’s classic 1980 storyline than X-Men: The Last Stand (2006) did, and fails even … Continue reading

Movie review: “Shazam!”

Shazam! joins the ranks of Wonder Woman and Aquaman as a dose of much-needed levity for the DCEU. In fact, it lands nicely between the two: more light-hearted than the former, and more tightly plotted and focused than the latter. The movie is based on the original Captain Marvel, who debuted in the 1940s and … Continue reading

Movie review: “Captain Marvel”

Breezy and light on gravitas, Captain Marvel doesn’t shake up the Marvel Cinematic Universe, but it does find a few new ways to perk up the umpteenth superhero origin story. It falls short of the intensity that propelled Black Panther and Wonder Woman, but most do. Set in 1995, the movie introduces us to Vers (Brie Larson), a member of … Continue reading
