Men in Black: International goes Across The Pond

Men in Black: International ups the ante just a little bit as MIB takes the fun across the pond in order to protect the universe. It’s been known since Tomorrowland that the Eiffel Tower was a bridge to another dimension.  While the former film saw Gustav Eiffel as a founder of Plus Ultra, this film sees him as one of MIB’s earliest agents.  In fact, the Great Migration was really aliens coming to Earth.  But…

Avengers: Endgame – The Endgame is Here

Marvel Studios’ previous films have all been leading up to Avengers: Endgame and the film is very much worth the three-hour run time. If you read nothing past the bold sentence: I laughed, cried, and cheered.  This is a film that plays to the fans and it’s going to make a butt load of money.  I can’t wait to see it again. I’m trying to avoid spoilers here so please read at your own risk.…

Avengers: Infinity War – The Road to Endgame

The stakes have never been higher with the release of Marvel Studios’ Avengers: Infinity War. Ten years in the making, it all culminates in this epic crossover of a film.  All of our favorite heroes in one film save for Hawkeye and Ant-Man–neither of which were one the poster.  With this large of a cast, it a was a question going into the film of how would they be able to handle the appearances of…

Thor: Ragnarok – The Road to Endgame

Thor: Ragnarok is Marvel’s most fun film and raises the bar as Thor teams up with Hulk to save Asgard. It’s been 2.5 years since Thor (Chris Hemsworth) left to look for Odin at the end of Avengers 2: Age of Ultron.  Meanwhile, Hulk (Mark Ruffalo) was seen departing for who knows where following the attack on Sokovia. Thor: Ragnarok‘s awesome cold open featuring Thor and Surtur sets the tone of the film with both…

Avengers: Age of Ultron – The Road to Endgame

Avengers: Age of Ultron is the penultimate film of Marvel’s Phase 2 and paves the landscape for phase 3 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. This film is every bit as epic of an installment as the initial team-up in 2012.  Since the collapse of S.H.I.E.LD., the Avengers have been busy at work in defeating H.Y.D.R.A.  This time, they’re taking out Baron Wolfgang von Strucker’s (Thomas Kretschmann) base in Sokovia.  It just so happens that this…

Thor: The Dark World – The Road to Endgame

Thor: The Dark World is far from the best film in the franchise as the Avenger battles against Malekith’s attempt to destroy the universe. The sequel incorporates a prologue like its predecessor.  This a great way of setting not just the tone but introduce us to new characters.  It turns out that once upon a time, Asgard was at battle against the Dark Elves.  But this battle is one that is far from over.  It’s…

The Avengers – The Road to Endgame

Marvel’s The Avengers is the team-up movie that we’ve been waiting for and it’s absolutely everything we wanted it to be. Loki wants to rule Earth.  There’s really no other way to put it.  After promising to turn over the Tesseract to the Chitauri, they will provide him with an army.  Oh Loki, don’t go making promises you can’t keep.  It probably will not end well. Back on Earth, Dr. Selvig (Stellan Skarsgård) is continuing his…

Thor – The Road to Endgame

Thor introduces an entirely new realm of mythology to the Marvel Cinematic Universe by way of the wondrous beauty that is Asgard. The film’s prologue introduces us to the nine realms, Asgardians, and Frost Giants.  We already had somewhat of an introduction during Captain America with the search for the Tesseract.  It goes without saying that one expands upon the mythology.  The main artifact that drives the plot is the Casket of Ancient Winters.  It’s…

Avengers: Infinity War – Now on Home Video

After breaking box office records, Marvel Studios’ Avengers: Infinity War can finally be yours now that the film has arrived on Digital HD this past week.  The 4K and Blu-ray/Digital release is set for August 14, 2018. Films like Avengers should be seen on the big screen but it holds up quite well on television.  Those final 40-45 minutes are among the most intense and action-packed cinema this year.  It’s amazing, really, to look back at…

Ghostbusters: Answer the Call

Starring four of the funniest women on earth, Ghostbusters: Answer the Call honors the spirit of the 1984 classic film. While it would have been nice to have seen the likes of Peter Venkman, Raymond Stantz, and Winston Zeddemore pass the baton to a new generation, Harold Ramis’ death in 2014 would forever change the face of the franchise.  Never mind just how hard it is getting Bill Murray to sign on board for anything.  With that out…
