Avengers: Infinity War

In light of what just officially came out, I feel that before I talk about Endgame I should talk out Infinity War. Now for the few of you that don’t know, this is the first part to the epic conclusion to the universe that has been in the making for, what 10 years?! That is crazy! Who else has been able to do that? I know that I never would have been able to think of something like that. Somewhere several years ago they thought about this as a concept and never thought that it would become what it did. How could they ever realize how this would come to shape parts of pop culture and how it would bring so many people together.

Now, this is the first time that most of the worlds that had not come together before, finally meet. Dr. Strange meets Tony and the Guardians are brought in with Thor. In the end, everyone comes together to try and beat the ultimate bad guy. The first thing that I want to say is that the script to the movie was really well done. Each character said and did things that felt true to their character despite that they were meeting people and in situations that were completely unique. Each scene helped move the story forward and helped to bring you back to the characters’ movies that happened before it.

I also really appreciated how they left the movie at the end. It left you satisfied that that part of the story was over, but it left you wanting to know what was going to happen in the next one. What was going to happen to all of our fallen heroes? We were going to have to wait to find out, unfortunately.

Overall it was one of Marvel’s best. Though I will state that this is not my favorite Marvel film, but it is up there on the list. Soon my thoughts on the last one will be out, so look for that in the near future.

Spider-man: Into the Spider-verse

I happily got to see this wonderful movie in the theater and unfortunately, it has taken me this long to write about it. This was definitely one of the best pictures of the year that I have seen. There were so many great things about it that I almost have nothing to say. It was just that enjoyable.

First, the story was so fantastic. It flowed really well and had me enticed the entire time. I was rooting to many of the characters throughout the movie and hoped that everything would turn out okay for everyone. I also really liked the character development throughout the story. Many of the characters faced many different issues, and you got to see them really work through them and understand each of their choices to move forward.

Another thing that I really enjoyed about this movie was the animation style or multiple animation styles. I liked that it brought in different kinds depending on what dimension each character came from. It brought a different energy to the film with each style. It also was really refreshing to see the mix of styles on the screen and it all looked together.

Overall, like I said, this was one of my favorite films from last year. It definitely deserved the Best Animation Feature at the Oscars. And believe me, it had some great competition. It was one of the best categories of the night! One thing that I will say is that I almost wished that it would have been a part of the Best Picture category. There were some films that were on that list that shouldn’t have been there. Why shouldn’t an animated movie be up on that list? Is it unworthy? Why? The last time that there was an animated movie up for best picture was in 2010 (Toy Story 3). That was almost 10 years ago. Perhaps one day we will see an animated film be back up on that list and perhaps it will win! With all that being said, if you haven’t yet seen this movie, I do whole-heartedly recommend it.

Captain Marvel

captainmarvel-posterIt has been a few hours since I wandered out of the theater after watching this movie. First, I will say I was really excited to see this movie. It is Marvel and therefore it is at least going to be enjoyable, even if it isn’t as good as my favorite (Thor Ragnarok, btw). I was also excited about a female-driven movie and how this would tie into the rest of the cinematic universe. Now that I have had some time to process after my time seeing it, there are some things that I liked, and some things that were “meh.”

The one thing I was having trouble with when I left the theater was how I was feeling after. I knew that I liked it, but there was something else that I couldn’t quite think of. I think I was slightly unfulfilled. I feel as if there could have been more done with her back story. You got a small glimpse, but nothing that really, really showed you who she is. As my boyfriend pointed out, many people in the movie were telling her to control her emotions, but you didn’t really see an extreme amount of them. You saw hints. I understood that perhaps you didn’t see a lot of her past because the character herself couldn’t remember them fully. With that being said. I did, truly, like the movie. I think I will really need to watch it again to really see different things and perhaps take it in a different way.

One thing I really appreciated was how they made Coulson and Nick Fury look younger and do it in a way that it didn’t freak you out. These characters were still recognizable and were just de-aged enough to make it believable. It would have been so bad if Nick Fury didn’t look like Nick Fury. For example, they could have turned out looking like how Jeff Bridges looked in Tron Legacy. That was hard to look at.

Another thing that I enjoyed was the music in this film. There were some 90s’ hits in there and I found myself singing along with them. I also thought that the placements of these songs were well done as well. For example, (spoiler-ish) in part of the last big battle scene Carol is fighting, and Just A Girl by No Doubt is playing in the background. It is a fabulous song to play during that kind of scene. I really did enjoy it.

There are some things in this movie that I haven’t decided on. These things are questions brought about after discussing the movie with my boyfriend. I don’t know if I will be able to come up with my decision without watching the movie again. Perhaps I will watch it again soon and come up with some answers. Overall I did really enjoy the film and I do look forward to watching it again. I also will watch it for the cat. He was definitely one of the best parts of the film. He is quite adorable and quite special (wink, wink).

Before I end my review, for now, there is one last thing that I wanted to address. I appreciated the nod to Stan Lee that they did at the beginning of the movie. I was almost at the point of tears. It was so nicely done, it just made me smile.
