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

Grade: A-

Don Cheadle, Robert Downey Jr., Josh Brolin, Bradley Cooper, Chris Evans, Scarlett Johansson, Brie Larson, Jeremy Renner, Paul Rudd, Mark Ruffalo, Chris Hemsworth, Danai Gurira, and Karen Gillan in Avengers: Endgame (2019)

The Marvel Cinematic Universe has come to this; eleven years and twenty-one films have led to a conclusion of epic proportions! Though, it takes a while to get to where it needs to be, due to its three-hour runtime. As much as I would love to talk about ‘Avengers: Endgame’, I feel by doing so would ruin a movie this huge and massive, it has to be seen to be believed. Nothing can prepare you for what is to follow, and how it all ends.

‘Captain Marvel’ Film Review

Grade: B-

Brie Larson in Captain Marvel (2019)

As of late, Marvel Studios’ newest installment ‘Captain Marvel’ has been the subject of political discussion and controversy. Most of the haters who do not tolerate what star Brie Larson had to say (if she said it) took to Rotten Tomatoes to bash the film, mere weeks before it came out. Yet, it has not stopped the film from being a cultural and financial phenomenon, becoming one of the highest-grossing female-led movies of all time; grossing close to $400 million worldwide, and showing no signs of stopping.

‘Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse’ Film Review

Grade: A

Shameik Moore in Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse (2018)

I never would have thought that an animated ‘Spider-Man’ movie would be the best in the series, but here we are. ‘Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse’ is the type of film that respects its superhero and history while also being entertaining and meaningful. It tells the story of Miles Morales (making his on-screen debut), and his own personal journey to become Spider-Man. Most comic book fans know that Peter Parker was not the only webslinger who has existed. Throughout the years, there have been many incarnations of Spider-Man, and most are represented in many different animation styles.

‘Venom’ Film Review

Grade: F

Tom Hardy in Venom (2018)

Known as one of Spider-Man’s most notorious villains, Venom is creepy, sinister, and shrouded in darkness, yet the same could not be said for Sony’s second attempt at bringing the character to the big screen. While I do admit that ‘Venom’ brings enough fun to keep it from being a loathsome experience, as a film though, it is on par with ‘Catwoman’ to be one of the worst superhero movies in existence. However, unlike ‘Catwoman’, it is one of those terrible films I would watch a second time for enjoy-ability.

‘Logan’ Film Review

Grade: A

Logan Movie Poster

Just because the MPAA has finally given a stand-alone X-Men movie an R-rating doesn’t mean it can’t be great. The financial and critical success of last year’s ‘Deadpool’ was enough to give Fox and Hugh Jackman the courage to finally get an R-rated Wolverine made. The sad truth however, is that this is the Aussie actor’s last time bearing the Adamantium claws he is most famous for. Jackman has played the character of Logan/Wolverine for 17 years, and he feels this is the best way to say goodbye to our favorite mutant.
