After watching Iron Man 13 years after its original cinematic release, I would say that Iron Man was, and still remains one of the best movies in the MCU. Its pretty hard to top this so Phase 4 better shape up to meet the bar.
There was a lot of expectation leading to Spider-man: Far From Home, being the final installment in Marvel […]
So there, my non expert opinions (and hopes) on how this split can still be salvaged. As a fan, I am wishing that everything pans out because I love the Spider-man films (except for the Tobey Maguire trilogy, sorry). Come on guys, do the right thing.
So finally, I’ve caught up with Venom, thanks to Netflix. As much as I wanted to like this […]
There’s really no better way to say goodbye. This is how you tell an epic story. This is how you end a magnificent saga. This Marvel Cinematic Universe at its best.
I know, I know. I’m super pathetic for only watching “Ant-man and The Wasp” on the same day […]
All in all, Spider-man: Into the Spiderverse managed to tap into the elements that makes Spider-man such a popular action hero and inject a fresh approach to jumpstart an expansion of the franchise. Into the Spider-verse, was fun, funky, interesting, intense and inspiring for young fans. The artwork, cinematography and music were on point and really made the movie come together as a strong, solid addition to the franchise. I wouldn’t mind seeing more of Miles Morales as Spider-man in future movies.
All in all Deadpool 2 was very consistent with the first movie, and was super entertaining with the script and the amazing action sequences. But it stopped short of being great when it refused to take itself seriously, even for a bit. And if you treat an entire movie as a joke, it gets monotonous after a while, and you lose sight of why you were rooting for it in the first place. Having said all that, Deadpool was still a solid addition to the franchise and managed to correct some booboos made by the Wolverine Origins movie in the post credits. Hopefully, next time, there would be a better balance of humor and seriousness to make Deadpool the compelling hero he is in the comic books.
All in all, I think that Black Panther was a good solo movie, especially to introduce the Black Panther to the MCU. However, at the end of the movie, I felt more connected to the villain than to the hero and I don’t think that’s what the movie was gunning for. While I would love to see Black Panther fighting alongside the Avengers, I’m not all that interested to see another solo movie. A spinoff with Okoye would be better in my book. But that’s just me.
X-Men First Class was the origin story of how Professor Charles Xavier was paralyzed, and now in this […]
