Avengers: Infinity War – Ka-Boom!

Anyone who’s read Marvel comics over the last four decades knows that any prolonged story arc will usually lead to one heckuva blowout in that arc’s conclusion.

That’s exactly what happens in Avengers: Infinity War – the final chapter (or is it?) of the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s current arc.
Since pretty much every sequence in Infinity War is, in some way, a spoiler, this is a review that’s proved difficult. But here we go…

People die.

People we care about die.

People we don’t care about (or even actively hate) die.

People we care about – but know we probably shouldn’t – die.

Only one character gets even a moderately happy ending.
Technically, the film is directed with panache; the CGI are bloody brilliant; every character gets a moment (or two) to shine.
The film’s running time of 149 minutes does not feel nearly that long.

Even though I’ve read some of the comics upon which Infinity War is based, my first reaction to film as a whole was, Whiskey Tango Foxtrot!

Avengers: Infinity War is not the best of the Marvel movies – not by a long shot – but it’s entertaining as hell for those who like the big blowout issues of certain Marvel Comics arcs (like, say, Infinity War).

For anyone who’s never seen a Marvel movie, this will likely confuse and frustrate you.

For fans of the comics and the previous Marvel movies, Infinity War will bring the current cycle of the studio’s films to a poignant semi-conclusion.

Note: there’s only one post-credits tag – at the very end of the credits – and it’s a good one.

Wind River: The Land of You’re On Your Own!

Taylor Sheridan’s directorial debut – from his own script – is a harsh, breathtakingly beautiful film that a lot to say – but cagily presents it in the guise of a gritty western thriller.

The film’s propulsion is set off by a lone female figure running barefoot in the snow until she falls over and dies. Why was she running? What was she running from?

Captain America: Civil War Begins Production


Marvel Studios has begun production Marvel’s Captain America: Civil War at Pinewood Studios in Atlanta, Georgia. The film has an ambitious arc – ‘after another international incident involving the Avengers results in collateral damage, political pressure mounts to install a system of accountability and a governing body to determine when to enlist the services of the team. The new status quo fractures the Avengers while they try to protect the world from a new and nefarious villain.’

Captain America: Civil War will feature appearances by the Avengers cast as well as Ant-Man (Paul Rudd), Agent 13/Sharon Carter (Emily Van Camp), Black Panther (Chadwick Boseman), General Thaddeus ‘Thunderbolt’ Ross (William Hurt), Brock Rumlow/Crossbones (Frank Grillo) and as yet to be revealed characters played by Daniel Brühl and Martin Freeman.

Captain America: is set for release on May 16, 2016. For more, follow the jump.

Avengers: Age of Ultron – Super Superhero Fun!

avengers-age-of-ultron-No Strings

Three years ago, Joss Whedon’s Marvel’s The Avengers blew everyone away by taking a group off characters who should never have been in the same room together and making us believe that they could save the world together. It was fresh and new and shiny.

Avengers: Age of Ultron is not fresh and new and shiny – but it is a fresh look at why these characters should, in fact, be in the same room even as cracks appear in the team that foreshadow less happy things to come.
