Remember those really old Sam Raimi Spider man movies
released in the early 2000’s? They still totally check out
Spider Man Far from home directed by Jon Watts follows the
events of Avengers Endgame and Spider Man played by Tom Holland must take on a
new threat. Far from Home takes place “far from home” as Peter Parker decides
to cut loose and go on vacation to Europe and not be the web singer for a while
but a an Avengers level threat “seemingly” threatens the safety of his friends
and his secret.
Far from home is better than Homecoming, there I said it
calm down with the pitch forks but it does not still hold a candle to Sam
Raimi’s Spider Man trilogy or at least the first two movies….we don’t really
talk about Spider Man 3 or That huge Amazing Spider Man pile of crap so…so I’m
going to need you to get ALLLL the way of my back with this!, sorry not sorry,
talk to the hand.…. I am getting off topic… Anyway Far from Home is a bigger
more ambitious movie than Homecoming and I loved it, the jokes were sloppy the
theatre was very quiet and I liked the one joke from MJ…so funny, the villain
Mysterio (Jake Gyllenhaal) was awesome, there was this one scene where Mysterio
takes advantage of Spider Man’s innocence…not like that but you are going to go
“What a jerk!”..
I hated the pacing of this movies I didn’t feel invested
until the second act. I do not remember having that problem with Sam Raimi Spider
Man’s. I loved the chemistry between MJ (Zendaya) and Peter and how he had to
balance being a teen and being Spider Man…SPOILER ALERT! Stay for the two post
credit scenes…thank me later
Spider Man Far From Home is an amazing teen/slash superhero
movie with a classic villain, Ned (Jacob Batalon) is a lousy friend just the
worst! If you loved the 90’s Spider man animated series which had Mysterio as a
recurring villain you will love this
SPOILER alert: this movie is the “ending”…see what I did
there? With the word? Eh you had to be
there Anyway Endgame is the 22nd MCU movie after Captain Marvel , 11
years in the making and it was worth the wait.
If Infinity War was about Thanos, Endgame follows Avengers
dealing with the after math that took place in Infinity war after Thanos’ Snappening,
snapping?...wait there is better word for this….decimation that wiped out half
the universe creatures.
At 3h2m runtime it didn’t feel like though the pacing is
steady filling in the gaps, giving you the feels, there were audible sniffles
and cheers in the cinema, how do I not spoil this?...umm Endgame is directed by
the Russo brothers who seem to be capable of balancing out such a “huge” story.
Last time I felt a movie was well balanced it was it…I mean “it” the movie
anyway Endgame brings a climatic “end” you did not see coming. Captain America
(Chris Evans)is the MVP of the movie, Thanos still remains the MCU’s best villain.
With no post credit scenes Endgame gives a perfect ending to the first 22
movies saga which brings the question….now what?
If you loved….all the MCU movies you will love this one.
Finally after seeing him for the first time in the post credits scene of the first Avengers, the purple one…no not prince!, Thanos the mad Titan finally steps down from his thrown to get the infinity stones himself. Avengers Infinity War aka Thanos 1(insert laugh here) culminates the 10 years of the Marvel Cinematic Universe(MCU) since the 1st Iron Movie, Infinty War sees Iron Man (Robert Downey jr), Thor(Chris Hemsworth)Captain America(Chris Evans) and the rest of the Avengers face off against Thanos(Josh Brolin) whose quest is to get all the Infinty stones and do away with of half the universe.
It is the 19th Movie in the MC(Marvel Cinematic Universe) directed by the Russo brothers (Arrested Development) who direct a stellar, huge cast and still making sure that the movie is contained, the banter between the characters work. Thanos finally breaks the curse of the Meh-Marvel movie villain by bringing forth a really smart, sympathetic villain; Spider man and Thor steal the show and be prepared for gasps as this is not your usual light hearted Marvel movie because it has some dark elements to it and it may leave some fans exhausted or no chance to breath because it is just so action packed. The movie runtime is 2h40m You will hardly feel it and 13LV
The hammer wielding Asgardian brute,does not have a hammer in this one, Yep mourn for Mjolnir but that does not stop this movie from taking you on a trip and just gifting you with a nice surprise that you could’nt “see”coming(laughing emoji here).In this one Thor (Chris Hemsworth) Loki (Tom Hiddleston) and Hulk (Mark Ruffalo) face off against: Hela (Cate Blanchett), The Goddess of death and the fire demon Surtur(Clancy Brown) who intend to plunge Asgard into oblivion, directed by Taika Waititi. Thor Ragnarok is the 3rd movie in the Thor movie trilogy and the 17th installment in the well woven MCU, Thor Ragnarok is a galactic Space trip, visually fantastic filled with all the colours that make you feel like you’ve entered a game. The action left a little something to be desired but was fun to watch which I think was a Nod to Thor the god of thunder video game and Thor’s character arc is confusing,is he arrogant again? or is he just confident?.Hela is the generic Meh-Marvel-Villian, Hulk is amazing,speaking and smashing stuff the score is amazing and Jeff Goldlum as the Grandmaster steals the show. For the lovers of the first two Thor movies prepare to feel like you’re in a game with this installment, you will not leave disappointed. Thor Ragnarok allows an audience well over 13,children should be accompanied by their parents and it runs for 130 minutes.
