My thoughts on Avengers: Endgame/MCU future
Well, like I do with almost all these movies, I saw Endgame and I have some thoughts about it. But here's the thing: It's really hard to give a decent review about a 3 hour film epic... And to be fair, it IS an epic in the actual true sense of the word... Without spoiling some major stuff. I could tell you about this and that. I could mention how cool those things were and what bothered me about these things. But despite it making 1.2 billion opening weekend (GODDAMN!!), not everyone has seen it yet.
Is it a perfect movie? No. I still think Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse was better. But that's become my favorite movie of all time. But it

Favorite MCU movies in order...
These are just the first 21 movies, not including Avengers: Endgame of Spider-Man: Far from Home. These are my opinions and mine alone.
First tier here are like the really excellent movies. Basically A+ through B+ movies.
1. Guardians of the Galaxy - Hit me right in the perfect nostalgia point.
2. Black Panther - I can't add anything. I thought it was near perfect.
3. Captain America: Winter Soldier - Same as Black Panther, just T'Challa was a bit more.
4. Thor: Ragnarok - I have too much fun with this movie. Just the sheer insanity was worth it for me.
5. Avengers - It was the original crossover that's never been done before so it nee
I’ve been giving my thoughts on the Transformers movies on here ever since the first live action TF movie hit the screens in 2007.
With the animated movie from 1986, I can’t really properly give an opinion on it. I know structurally it’s a mess and not really that deep or great of a movie… But it was so influential on me as a kid, and even to this day, that I really can’t give a real opinion on the matter. But the live action ones? That’s not a problem. It wasn’t really my childhood, so I had no problem trying to be subjective about it… Or so I thought.
My opinion of them has changed over the

Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse
Y'all, I absolutely loved it. It's easily the best Spider-Man movie ever made. I suspect it may be the best comic book movie ever made. (Or at least in the top five, up there with Winter Soldier, Black Panther and The Incredibles.) Seeing the style on the web doesn't do it justice. The "jerkiness" people talked about actually isn't as noticeable on the big screen, and even plays into the fun. he writing is clever, the animation is fun and inspiring. This is the movie that Spider-Man: Homecoming should have been. When it needs to be emotional, it's emotional. When it needs to be funny, it's hilarious. There's a moment in the mov

Reboots, prequels and decanoninzing installments.
Been a while since I made one of these kinda posts, huh?
So I’d like to talk about a subject matter that’s been bothering me for several years now, and it’s a trend that’s pretty much been a mainstay in a lot of forms of entertainment: Reboots, prequels and decanonizing earlier installments of a franchise.
As a rule, I generally am not too fond of many of them… But I also understand the need for them.
With reboots, sometimes the story is just plain DONE and you’re wanting to retell it for a new audience. If you’re wanting to reboot the Nightmare on Elm Street movies, it’s probably not a bad t
