Movie Review – Avengers: Infinity War

Movie Review – Avengers: Infinity War

Avengers Infinity War poster.jpgThe movie opens with Thanos possessing one of the Infinity stones. Soon, he defeats the Hulk and gains another stone. Most of the movie is spent with the Avengers and their friends trying to block Thanos from gaining any more.

Without creating further spoliers, I’ll stop there. The action and special effects were supurb. However, I did feel that some of the storyline was lacking. Instances where there could’ve been deeper conversations between characters, etc. was glazed over.

The ending of the movie felt rushed and I worry that my prediction of what will come in Part 2 of this movie will happen. I want to be surprised and awed and while I enjoyed Infity War immensly the shock value of the ending didn’t resonate with me.

***Spolier Alert *** I feel like the characters vanishing was a ploy and they’ll be back.

What about you? Have you seen Infinity Wars? What’s your thoughts?

My rating: 4.6 out of 5 stars

When is the next Infinity Wars coming out?

It’s tentatively scheduled to be released on May 3, 2019

Movie Review – Spiderman Homecoming

Movie Review – Spiderman: Homecoming

Spider-Man Homecoming poster.jpgSpider-Man Homecoming takes place after the

Avengers: Infinity War movie. Tom Holland plays Spiderman and I have to agree with the critics that the actor did a superb job portraying Peter Parker/Spiderman.

The action and special effects were amazing.

This isn’t your copy-cat Spiderman though. First, MJ is not who you think she is and Peter doesn’t have a crush on her. Second, Aunt May is much younger than in previous films and comic books. Third, well that’s a surprise at the end of the movie so I won’t spoil it but it does tie into the second point above.

There are two post-credit scenes with the last one being another Captian America info-glip that is after all the credits.

So when is the next Spiderman movie coming out? A sequel is scheduled to be released on July 5, 2019.

My rating 4.8 stars out of 5

Movie Review – Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children

Movie Review – Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children

MissPeregrineCoverMiss Peregrine’s movie is based on a dark fantasy debut novel by American author Ransom Riggs.

Jacob Portman lives a normal life outside of his grandfather’s fabulous tales about Miss Peregrine and her home for peculiar children. As a teen, he dismisses the stories as fables. Yet, when his grandfather is attacked, he can’t shake the image of a monster lurking in the shadows.

At the advice of his psychologist, he travels to Wales with his dad to visit the home. Even though the kids in his grandfather’s photos are from 1943, he stumbles upon their time loop.

This movie had great premise and even the fragments before the movie started looked promising. However, I think with the PG-13 rating, they tried to make it not so scary for kids. As a result, parts were childish and sometimes humorous or even unbelievable.

Overall though, I did enjoy the movie and storyline. There were also a few twists in the movie and some unanswered questions.

 

My rating 3.9 out of 5

Movie Review 10 Cloverfield Lane

Movie Review: 10 Cloverfield Lane

10_cloverfield_laneA woman wakes up in an underground shelter with two men. One insists there are aliens above them and toxic gas. But he also has weird tics. She thinks he’s lying even when the other guy confirms there is something going on on the surface.

I liked the tension and suspense in this movie and the never quite knowing if John Goodman’s character/ Howard is telling the truth or not.

However, there was one part that irked me. Instead of letting the characters figure out something, the movie says here is an earring and it matches one in this picture. There’s a bit more to it in the movie than here, but I idon’t want to give away too much. However, I think the earring was too much and not needed. I’d have liked the characters to figure out what was going on with everything else.

Besides, what are the chances that the specific earring would match one in a photo?

Other than that, there were a few surprises and twists and turns. Some a bit unbelievable, but overall a decent movie.

My rating 3.8 out of 5
