After 10 years, Marvel delivers their biggest and boldest movie yet
It’s been 10 years since Marvel released their first movie as part of their ground-breaking cinematic universe. Since then, we’ve seen films for Iron Man, Captain America, Black Panther, and even Antman. We’ve been on a roller coaster ride of emotions with our favorite superheroes. Infinity War is the grand season finale to the TV show-movie hybrid called the MCU. Whether you’re okay with this concept will ultimately determine your enjoyment of Marvel’s biggest, boldest, and most ambitious movie yet.
Despite its many flaws, The Defenders’ diverse and compelling characters make it worthwhile
Netflix’s Marvel Cinematic Universe was once an exciting subject for fans of The Defenders. They got to see their favorite heroes’ separate series and Daredevil, Jessica Jones, and even Luke Cage’s stand-alone series were all surprisingly good. People seem to have forgotten that they were the first series to make Netflix a considerable network capable of spewing out high-quality content. Now, with this in mind, it’s rather disappointing that the highly anticipated team up is a sub-par 8-episode limited series only saved by the characters we already learned to love.
The DCEU badly needed a win and Patty Jenkins delivers big time
Female-led action movies are still having a hard time at the box office. Ghost In The Shell is the recent film to fall victim to such a pattern. These movies make significantly less than male-led action movies and are still considered a gamble to make. With the DCEU’s latest movie streak, they desperately need a movie both fans and critics can agree is good. Wonder Woman is not only the DCEU’s first good movie, it may also be this summer’s best superhero movie.
While not as fresh as the original, Vol. 2 surprises yet again with great banter and new characters
The first Guardians of the Galaxy surprised almost everybody watching. With a bunch of new characters, it shouldn’t have been that great but it was. Marvel found a way to make the viewers embark on a journey they had no idea where the destination would be. Let me tell you, they found gold. I fell in love with the ragtag team made up of a talking raccoon and a big tree that only knew three words. They didn’t pave an easy way for Vol. 2. Despite it not being as good as the original, the Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 is still loads of fun, packed with laughs and over abundantly cute.
