    The King of Staten Island

    ★★★

    While the tenderness of this drama’s emotional aspirations remain intact -- ‘The King of Staten Island’ feels like one very long standup joke that falls a little short at the punchline; despite being a relatively entertaining ride.

    ‘The King of Staten Island’ is a drama/biopic directed by Judd Apatow - it follows a loose telling of 24 year old Pete Davidson as his issues with dealing with the loss of his father arrive at a boiling point.

    Tying together 11 years of cinematic history into a single 3 hour epic - 'Avengers: Endgame' is an ode to those that forged the franchise; a fantastically structured narrative combining the best elements of every MCU film into one final chapter.


    This is a story about family, those that we lose, moving on, but also... refusing to. 'Avengers: Endgame' doesn't just signify a closing point for the Marvel Cinematic Universe, but the fundamental ending of a…
