    The Hunt for Red October

    ★★★½

    As I watch more Tom Clancy inspired films, I have come to the conclusion that they might not be my thing.
    Casting Sean Connery as a Russain was the film’s first mistake.

    With a second viewing, I can safely say this has rapidly climbed my list as the #1 Marvel film! While it is filled with fan service, most of that service serves the narrative. Every character has an important character arc that is satisfying and in some cases, a logical conclusion for their story in the MCU. Endgame builds on the lore of Thanos, constructing a villain that joins the conversation with Joker, Darth Vader and the like, as one of…
