    Captain Marvel

    ★★★½

    There was a nice applause during the Marvel Studios logo; Tribute to Stan Lee at my viewing tonight. Yeh, I thought this was fine. The "different kind of origin story" ended up being the typical kind of origin story, only with dreams and flashbacks setting the stage, confusing the audience on what they should be believing. I enjoyed the 'fish out of water' stuff more than Thor, only because it's my decade being featured here; Blockbuster video, Radio Shack, the…

    What can I say? This was everything I ever wanted in a two part Avengers. I couldn't help but cry as my sister is balling her eyes out sitting next to me.

    Thanos feels like a great villain out of the gate, and so does the Black Order. He makes his presence known early and consistently throughout the movie. Brolin was great. After the opening sequence, the stakes are felt. I love that they gave the Black Order something to…

  • Mile 22

    Mile 22

    ★★★

    I'm beginning to think that Peter Berg is the new Tony Scott (a career of three star films). This is if Ben Affleck's Accountant, went international, and instead of an autistic assassin, you get Mark Wahlberg.

    I wish they had replaced Ronda Rousey with Gina Carano. The best parts about this movie are the fight scenes with Iko Uwais. And the sub 90 minute run-time makes this a quick romp. It's violent, illogical and lacking a satisfying payoff, but worth a watch.

  • Suicide Squad: Hell to Pay

    Suicide Squad: Hell to Pay

    ★★★★

    Just as good if not better than the Assault on Arkham version. Enjoyed a lot of the characters and tie ins here. But what's probably most impressive, the subtle, but yet extremely satisfying tie in with Flashpoint Paradox (made 5 years earlier) and all of the Doctor Fate stuff including the mythology around the Get out of Hell Free card. Need more DC renditions like this and much more Justice League Dark / Paradox stuff.

    LOVED this- Had no idea it was a Boyle film.

    Reluctant Yay. Seriously the retreads are getting so old with J.J.

    I mean, Okay... it's great that we have new characters to play with. But when your villain is just another Vadar, and your super weapon is just a bigger Death Star, and your master mind is just another Emperor ..("OOh lets rename him supreme leader!") It's just the same movie over and over again.

    I'm guessing we'll find out who Rey's parents are eventually. BUt did anyone else find…
