‘Avengers: Endgame’ Film Review (Spoiler-Filled)

Grade: A-

Now that ‘Avengers: Endgame’ has had a good, albeit successful run in theaters for a few weeks, and the spoiler ban has been lifted, I have felt the need to go into detail about ‘Avengers: Endgame’. Being that this review is filled with spoilers, those who still have yet to see this epic conclusion to Marvel’s ‘Infinity Saga’ should turn back and come here afterward; otherwise, you can keep going.

‘The Grinch’ Film Review

Grade: B-

Benedict Cumberbatch in The Grinch (2018)

For those wondering about ‘The Grinch’, it is not like the Jim Carrey/Ron Howard collaboration at all, it is bright, colorful, whimsical, and touching despite mostly being filler for a story meant to be short. In other words, it is definitely better. Though nothing beats Chuck Jones’ 1966 animated Christmas special that made the green mischief-maker a Christmas staple, Illumination’s take on Dr. Seuss’ spiteful-yet-beloved character is as sweet as a sugar cookie, even when it is not much.

In case you were worried, I will not dive into spoilers (Maybe once the hype dies down, I will issue a spoiler-filled review). Instead, you will be treated to a premise and mainly thoughts.

‘Doctor Strange’ Film Review.

Grade: A

Doctor Strange Movie Poster

Benedict Cumberbatch dons the levitating cape, a blue mystic outfit, and a Vincent Price hairdo, as Marvel’s own Mystic superhero, Doctor Strange. In the newest Marvel Studios outing (which is reported to tie into ‘Avengers: Infinity War’, and ‘Thor: Ragnarok’) Strange starts off as a real doctor named Steven Strange; (the name isn’t made to sound cool either.) he has a PhD, but what makes him different from the other doctors is his knack for 70’s music, (which turns into a game of Name-That-Tune with him and his colleagues while getting the job done), sarcastic wit, and arrogance which somewhat makes him the jerk of the hospital. It also makes him clash with two of his colleagues; Christine Palmer (Rachael McAdams), the former love of his life; and Nicodemus West (Michael Stuhlbarg), who he gives a ton of guff to.
