Tunes Tuesday “Celebrity Skin” by Hole From The Captain Marvel Soundtrack

This song plays over the end credits of Captain Marvel. I had never heard the song before but it appeals to my “inner grunge” I never knew was there.

Avengers: Endgame A Spoiler-Free Review

avengers-endgame

Avengers: Endgame is a magnum opus and by my estimation the greatest super hero movie ever made and also a really great film. The culmination of 21 movies that came before it Endgame is everything it needed to be and more. You don’t feel like you have been in a movie for over three hours because it goes by so fast. The dialogue and action keep you entertained and engaged from start to finish.

This is one of those movies with a galaxy of stars from all the previous films. I do believe its helpful to have seen all the previous titles so you can get full idea of what’s happening. One thing I do think is that you need to see it on a big screen. Don’t wait for this to come to home video.

Spoiler Free Review Of Captain Marvel

Captain Marvel is a terrific character and this movie showcases that terrifically. Brie Larson is a perfect choice for this role. The movie does a great job of adding context for what we have already seen in the other movies. Women heroes on screen in reality are needed now more than ever. Carol Danvers becoming Captain Marvel is a great story of never giving up and always rising to the occasion. The supporting cast featuring Samuel L. Jackson, Clark Gregg, Jude Law and Annette Benning make this movie even more special.

Captain America: Civil War – A Dark, Heroic, Complicated Tale

I made a joke that Captain America: Civil War was a nothing but a story featuring hero-on-hero violence. You know what happens when you assume stuff. This movie was entertaining, thought provoking and somewhat heartbreaking. Without giving away anything I will say that we are all manipulated by political forces and sometimes people on the same team have to choose the best way to go about doing something and therefore causes much conflict, even war. The cast performances are top shelf and I think Chris Evans and Robert Downey, Jr. are amazing. If you haven’t seen this movie, go. You might want to watch the Captain America, Iron Man, Ant Man and Avengers movies before seeing this one to provide much needed context. This is probably the best super hero movie made in quite some time, a new standard has been set.
