Review: Avengers: Infinity War (and my thoughts on the IMAX presentation)

Review: Avengers: Infinity War (and my thoughts on the IMAX presentation)

Avengers: Infinity War is the movie the Marvel universe has been building to ever since the first Avengers teased Thanos six years ago. It’s hard to believe it’s already been six years since the first Avengers movie and ten years since the first Iron Man. Like everyone else on the planet, I was incredibly excited to see the movie and was curious if the Russo brothers and Marvel could pull off such an ambitious movie with such a large cast. How do you properly tell a story that has so many characters in so little time? And how does Thanos rank among Marvel’s big screen villains? Or among other big screen villains? Hit the jump below to find out my spoiler-free thoughts.

Remember Planet Hulk? How about Planet Hulk but instead of Hulk being the main character who gets imprisoned, how about Thor? Then Hulk can be on the planet, too. And they’ll fight in the arena! And Cate Blanchett can play the Goddess of Death. Sounds good!

This week the guys take on Thor 3 otherwise known as Thor: Ragnarok. At the time of this recording, Thor: Ragnarok is Marvel’s best reviewed film of all time. So what did the guys think? Check it out below.

It’s been 27 years since the last live action adaptation of IT. Coincidentally, IT comes back to Derry every 27 years…

This week the guys discuss the new horror film based on Stephen King’s classic novel. It’s doing very well in theaters currently and the sequel is basically a sure thing. So what did they think? How does it compare to the 1990 miniseries? Is Bill Skarsgård’s Pennywise as good as Tim Curry’s?

When Marvel announced their decision to make a movie based on Ant-Man, it probably felt like a risk. Not as well known as Iron Man or Captain America, would people go see a movie about a character who can shrink to the size of an insect? It’s ranked 14th among the MCU movies, so while not as big of a hit as Guardians of the Galaxy, still not a flop either. What did the guys think of the movie? Check it out below and be sure to comment to let us know what you think of Ant-Man!

After The Motion Picture, the folks behind Star Trek decided to go back to the original series to find their villain and what an excellent choice they made. Khan, after being abandoned on Ceti Alpha V, is back to exact his revenge on Kirk and crew. And revenge, as we all know, is a dish best served cold. So what do the guys think about Wrath of Khan?

The first Spider-Man movie. Again. But this time with more Iron Man. That’s right, folks, Spider-Man is part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Introduced in Captain America: Civil War, this film follows Peter Parker (Tom Holland) as he longs to be a part of The Avengers. Too bad that pesky thing called High School is in the way. The awesome Michael Keaton stars as Adrian Toomes, aka The Vulture, as the film’s main villain. How does this film rank compared to previous Spider-Man films? Let us know what you think about it and check out the episode below!

Review: Logan

Review: Logan

 Hugh Jackman has played Wolverine for 17 years. The first X-Men film came out in the summer of 2000. I remember seeing it when I was 16 years old. We, as audience members and fans, have been extremely lucky that Jackman has been willing to play the character for so long. But obviously all good things must come to an end and so Jackman has stated that Logan is his final outing as the metal-clawed superhero and it’s an excellent film to go out on.

The film is set in 2029 (possibly making Wolverine close to 200 years old!) and the majority of mutants are extinct. Charles Xavier is still around (played, of course, by Patrick Stewart) although he’s having trouble controlling his powers. He’s prone to seizures now and when he has them, it’s potentially fatal for anyone nearby. Logan is working as a limo driver trying to save money for a boat so he and Xavier can live on the water and be safe from the rest of the world (as well as make the rest of the world safe from Xavier and his killer seizures).
