    Friday the 13th Part III

    ★½

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    Well that series went downhill quickly.

    Part 3 opens by reshowing a big chunk of the end of Part 2, but actually has almost nothing to do with the previous movie. A character watches TV and sees Ginny put into the ambulance, but the report is all about how there's a homicidal maniac on the loose (fair enough) and doesn't mention whether or not Paul survived. That's too bad, but I guess it leaves me free to create my own…

    Murder, My Sweet

    ★★★

    I wrote in a previous review that "the central mystery is kind of dull." Which I can reaffirm, because in spite of the fact that I've clearly seen this before, I had no memory of seeing any of it as I was watching it this time.

    Powell is pretty good as Marlowe, though, and the dialogue is snappy, perfect Chandler.

    Did not take enough tissues.

    I expected Endgame to complete the story begun in Infinity War (with of course references to earlier films). Did not expect it to complete the stories begun in Iron Man, First Avenger, and really the entire saga so far. It's deeply emotional and a satisfying conclusion in so many ways.
