Avengers: Infinity War movie review

MV5BMjMxNjY2MDU1OV5BMl5BanBnXkFtZTgwNzY1MTUwNTM@._V1_.jpg

Well here it is. The big one. Everything that a decade of Marvel and eighteen movies have led up to. No ones expectations could be higher, it had so much to live up to… And you know what? It NAILED it. Avengers: Infinity war is what everything was always leading up to. The Avenger are all assembled, with a massive number of them now, all to fight Thanos as he is nearing completion in uniting all of the Infinity stones and wiping out half of the universe. This is probably one of the most exciting movies I have ever seen for many reasons, probably the biggest though being that I got to see crossovers from heroes I only dreamed of seeing together! What is really cool is that no one seems to be left behind. Certain characters may only be in here for what feels like minutes but it always feels like they contributed exactly what they needed to. Because of that though it is also a stupidly long movie. Don’t misunderstand me, that is certainly not a complaint, I could have happily sat through it if it was triple the length… Much like every Marvel movie the comedy is prevalent and there without ever really taking away from the tone of the movie, which is ever-changing. As you switch between heroes you follow the tone and feel of the movie changes on a dime. When we go to the Guardians you get some cool 80’s jam and humor, then it switches to Wakanda and we get the tribal music everyone associates with Black Panther. However, the comedy isn’t there as much as other Marvel movies and you have to go into this realizing it isn’t going to pull punches like other Marvel movies either. Right from the opening scene it proves that there are going to be much darker takes in here than anywhere else and it keeps proving that right up until the bitter end. It’s difficult to write a review for the most anticipated movie in a decade without giving anything away so I’m going to leave it here. After watching this, you will have just as much you want to say as I want to!

Avengers: Infinity War trailer review

jknjnjln.jpg

Now, I’m not a HUGE Marvel fan so I don’t know everything there is to know about this universe. However, I’m also not insane or been living under a rock, so I’ve obviously seen all the MCU movies at this point (some more than others). What I do know though, just from watching this trailer, is that this movie has the potential to make every other MCU movie look boring by comparison! The biggest reveal of them all is clearly Thanos, a foe we have been preparing for almost 6 years now, that until this point had just been sitting in a chair and made of bad CGI. To me the second biggest reveal was The Guardians of the Galaxy for a split second at the end of the trailer. Something that I have thought a lot about ever since 2014 with the original Guardians movie was how they were going to tie in with the MCU, and if we would ever get to see them fight alongside the Avengers. To me, and everyone else I assume, their movies seemed completely separate from everyone else’s. I don’t know if they will fight this movie, or maybe they showed us the after credit sequence it the trailer! Either way, it was awesome… Another couple of things worth mentioning are emo Captain America, the addition of Dr. Strange, Caucasian vision, and the return of Hulk. Dr. Strange was another hero who’s addition to the group confused me slightly with how it will be done. Where the Guardians are far more advanced, technologically speaking, Dr. Strange’s powers will be almost overpowering in my opinion. I hope they don’t “nerf” him. Human looking Vision took me back for a second, and Thanos taking his forehead rock (yes, I know what it is called) took be back for a moment. I’m very interested to not only see why he is normal looking, but to see if he even lives!.. Oh! Spidey is in this too, obviously. After his hit of a movie, not throwing him in anything you possibly can would just be stupid! A couple changes though. He appears to have Spidey-senses now, which is a damn good thing too because he sucked at fighting without them! He also appears to have a new suit for some reason… I feel like I have been talking about Spider-Man’s new suit ever couple years for most of my life at this point. Either way, I’m not a fan… Out of the whole trailer though, that is about the only thing I’m not a fan of. It was action packed and smart. Teased just enough of what I needed to get me interested while still telling me absolutely nothing overall. It was also darker than most MCU movies seem, which I hope stays true in the actual movie. Either way though we all know I’m going to see this, and we all now you are going to see this, just like everyone else!

Iron Man is better than Batman: Why Batman is terrible

ironman-vs-batman.jpg

An argument I have had for some time is whether Iron Man or Batman is better. Both share a lot of similarities, the largest being that they both have no super hero abilities, unless you count being filthy rich… I believe strongly that Iron Man is not only better than Batman, but, that Batman is a terrible super hero.  (Disclaimer: I am not a big comic book reader so my arguments will be made solely referencing the movie universe.) 

Lets start with the super hero suits themselves.  Bruce Wayne is worth about 9.2 billion dollars, while Tony Stark is worth around 12.4 billion dollars. To any normal person three billion dollars is a lot of money! However, when you look at it in that amount there is nothing you can do with 9 billion you can’t do with 12. So I ask you, why is the bat suit leagues worse than the Iron Man suit? Yes, the suit Batman wears looks really cool, I will give you that. However, The Iron man suit is equipped with missiles, guns, energy weapons, an AI software, it can fly, is made of METAL, and a lot more. And it is clear it didn’t cost him much more because Tony has made near fifty of them already. On top of that, Bruce wasn’t trying to save money while making his suit because he orders hundreds of face pieces just to disguise wanting one for himself!.. Now, what you could say is that Batman has the batmobile, the batwing and his super computer in the bat cave, BUT, Tony doesn’t need any of those things because it is all already equipped in his one suit.

Alright, hopefully now I have convinced you that Bruce Wayne made a terrible decision to make the suit he did. Now I will convince you on why Bruce Wayne is just a terrible person! Isn’t this fun?.. So, Wayne enterprises is a very large corporation with a lot of money. The company does many, many things. One of which, largely supported by Bruce’s father Thomas, is charity. Thomas was a large supporter in helping the under privileged and supporting Gotham in any way he could. He would donate money, homeless shelters, and even built a train system to help people get to work! Not only did Bruce stop helping the poor he actually DESTROYED that train. Bruce Wayne could do much more for Gotham if he donated money, helped the poor, and pretty much everything his father did. Unfortunately he chose to run around looking like a bat instead. Tony’s father on the other hand, as well as Tony Himself, developed weapons and sold them to the highest bidder. Tony stopped that to help people.

Sure, without the suits Bruce would kick Tony’s ass. Bruce is basically a ninja and Tony is just a regular guy. Yet, despite that, Iron Man is a much better super hero. Bruce doesn’t want to help people, if he actually did he would follow in his fathers footsteps to help Gotham. Bruce wants to beat people up while satisfying his leather fetish.

Captain America: Civil War trailer review

Okay, so, I couldn’t let one more day go by without reviewing this new trailer… Civil War needs no introduction or explanation at this point, so why don’t I just get to the trailer? This trailer is a lot more action filled, a lot quicker pace, and a lot cooler in my opinion. I’m not gonna lie, I’m full on team Iron Man… This trailer really made Cap seem like the bad guy, and I love it. I never thought Marvel would be able to make Captain America seem like the bad guy, but they succeeded. After watching this I don’t think Bucky is savable. It appears he kills War Machine and tries to shoot Tony JUST in this two minute trailer… There is so much to talk about in this, but something nobody is talking about is Ant Man… I realize he didn’t have the best movie, but its cool seeing him fight among the other heroes, if only for a second in this! After seeing this though it makes me worried that there is just too much to it. Too many heroes/villains. Too many story lines. Too much to touch on. I worry it will be packed, and too many things will be shoe horned… Now, what everyone is talking about…Spiderman. I should be a lot more excited, but I’m not. This is the THIRD Spiderman I have seen in 15 years. I know it is Marvel, but I’m not that excited. I’m also not sure how I feel about the suit. At first I hated it, now I only kind of hate it… I really think they should have completely left Spidey out till the movie. Anyway, I don’t need to tell you to watch it. I know everyone already will!
