‘Maleficent: Mistress of Evil’ Movie Review

Male cover

It took a few years but the sequel to the hugely popular dark fairytale returns. This film is PG, I’m sure, to get younger viewers. The movies starts “dark” and lightens up yet there are enough scenes to probably still scare younger children. I viewed it in IMAX and it was great.

‘Avengers: Endgame’ Movie Review

Endgame

So, I’m a serious #Marvel fan, therefore, I did enjoy the movie and there are many scenes that made me laugh, tear up and clap for all of the Avengers. For the first time, there are NO end credit scenes yet there is an end credit SOUND that must link somehow to the next phase of movies. I have seen it now two times, in IMAX & IMAX 3D; both nice formats. Now, please stop reading because SPOILERS are next:

1. I did NOT like that Nat/Black Widow is I guess, dead? I must research to find out if the character dies in the comic books. I think she may have been snapped back but they don’t know where yet.
2. I was a little surprised that Vision didn’t return in the time travel.
3. Loki is back when the Avengers travel back in time…there’s a scene that he steals a stone and disappears yet he never re-appears…maybe??? So there may be a twist in future movies about that.
4. I was quite surprised that when Thanos travels back in time, he is such a force for the Avengers to fight altogether. Even with Captain Marvel, Captain America with Thor’s hammer, Iron Man and Pepper suited up etc… it was still a losing fight battle against Thanos, smh.
5. I did not like Iron Man dying yet I’ve heard he dies in the comic books.
6. I did not like that Captain America returns back as an old man and gives up his shield to Falcon.
7. I was surprised that the 2 audiences thus far, that I’ve seen it with did not cheer when Falcon got the shield and when Nick Fury was shown at the end (I didn’t notice him when the Avengers returned).
8. Who was the random man standing with the Avengers at Iron Man’s memorial? He’s shown just before the Shield agents, Captain Marvel then Nick.
9. I have to research to find out what the “sound” means at the end of movie. Answer:  the sound is the same from ‘Iron Man 1’ when Tony was building his first suit.
10. I noticed that Gamora was not on the ship with the Guardians when they left yet she did fight with the Avenger ladies in the last fight scene.

‘Ant-Man and the Wasp’ Movie Review

I really enjoyed this sequel. New characters are introduced to this funny ensemble cast. Fun summertime popcorn movie. Yes, there are two end credit scenes with the first one tying into the Avengers 2019 sequel. My first viewing was in Dolby; I’ll probably check it out in 3D as well.

‘Murder on the Orient Express’ Movie Review

I will say that this movie is better than I thought it would be.  It’s not a thriller and probably could have been better considering the great ensemble cast yet I was engaged the entire movie.  The “who done it” was twisty till the end yet I wanted a more intense lead up to the reveal.

‘Mother!’ Movie Review

Mother banner

Although one of the genres is horror, believe me, this is only a horror of a movie. The storyline makes no sense and it’s not scary. I thought maybe Jennifer’s character had an issue about going outside after a horrific incident…but no sense was ever made. A waste of the talent in this movie. Don’t waste your money or time.

‘The Family’ Movie Review

I found this to be a humorous yet dark action/comedy movie. This is a (typical) mafia storyline yet there are twists to the storyline that keep you wondering what is the genre of this movie? Lol, most will find this movie entertaining with a pretty good cast…the children’s characters, Belle and Warren are hilarious. I think I was expecting more drama to this storyline and other genres were more present. Some of the fight/crimes scenes are intense.
