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!

Captain America: Civil War movie review

civil-war-poster-3.jpg

It took me long enough to see this! Damn!.. I’m just going to refer to this as Civil War because in every sense, this is an Avengers movie. Civil war doesn’t need much of an introduction. Everyone and their sister has looked forward to this movie for a very long time… So, at the beginning of the movie Wanda accidentally kills a bunch of civilians which causes everyone to look closer at the damage the Avengers truly cause. The UN fashions up an agreement, making the Avengers a government run “back up” of sorts. Captain America and a bunch of other super heroes disagree, Iron Man and a bunch of other super heroes agree. At the same time Bucky (Winter Soldier) is trying to escape the clutches of the government and Captain America is helping… This movie had every possibility to be a giant cluster fuck. This had every opportunity disappoint everyone! This movie has so much talent and so much buildup that it would take a miracle (or Marvel studios) to handle all of that!.. But it did… This movie has the same light hearted tone most of the time we are use to. But, countering that, when it needed to be serious it was. For the first time in a Marvel movie I was concerned for the characters lives! Lets touch on the characters now, and there are a lot of them! Iron Man and Captain America countered each other superbly. They clashed and you saw their friendship crumble because of it. Bucky was amazing and I was very invested in his story. I was worried his story would get in the way but I loved learning how he came to be! The reveal of Black Panther was awesome, especially the reveal of who he was! Seeing a hero who does not act as an Avenger, and does not want to be one is great! Paul Rudd as Ant Man was awesome comic relief and fit in SO much better than I thought he would. Everyone else was as you would expect them, BUT the one everyone looked forward to is Spider Man! Everyone but me. Going in to this I was not excited about Spider Man. In fifteen years I have seen 5 movies and 2 different actors… I was blown away! Tom Holland NAILED every aspect of Spider Man. He is a better Peter Parker than Tobey Maguire and a better Spider Man than Andrew Garfield! If you like him make sure to stick around for the end credits!.. This movie is great and you have to see it!.. But, you already knew that. Didn’t you?

 

 

Deadpool movie review

teaser-one-sheet

If I could sum this up in a sentence? Good question, nobody in particular!.. One giant, awesome, bad-ass, hilarious, vulgar, fourth wall break… Does that count as a sentence? I’m not sure, but, it’s not like I’m a writer or anything… Deadpool really needs no introduction, but I’m going to give it one because I want to. Deadpool stars Ryan Reynolds as Wade. Wade is ex military, and now works as a mercenary. He falls in love with a woman with a TON of issues, Vanessa… A little down the line he is diagnosed with cancer and goes to a mysterious man who cures him but also makes him ugly as hell and have super human abilities… Boom! Deadpool!.. It’s honestly a really simple premise, there are no real twists and it ends how you think it will. Being deep is not why you will love it… This movies is amazing on so many levels, I’m not going to sugar coat it or anything, it is just fucking awesome. It is also EXTREMELY rated R. You see multiple people in full frontal nudity, a couple sex scenes, “fuck” is used with nonchalance, and TWICE Deadpool uses a person decapitated head as a soccer ball… Like I said, fucking awesome.It is fun from start to end, the opening credits and opening actions sequence lets you know EXACTLY what kind of ride you are in for… I’ll be honest, I have never read a Deapool comic but from what I understand he talks to the reader. If that is true than they nailed this shit. He NEVER stops narrating.But not just narrating, actually talking like he knows he is in a movie. When he is talking to Colossus he literally asks which actor is playing Professor X! He says he fondled Wolverines balls to get in the movie, and he explicitly requests not to have a green, animated suit!.. I know it’s a small role but it has to be mentioned. T.J. Miller. T.J. Miller is one of the funniest people in comedy right now and I love him in this. I wondered if they just sat him and Ryan Reynolds down in a room for a while and said “be funny” and then put it in the movie… Writing this I am working very hard not to spoil anything because all I want to do is talk about every single detail of this movie. But, I can’t. All I can tell you is that you need to see it. I’m going to see it again, and then probably again.
