(SPOILER ALERT: Do not read this review if you haven't watched Avengers: Endgame yet, because the ending connects directly to this movie. However, if you waited this long to see Endgame, the Internet probably spoiled it for you already.) Allow me to digress for a moment and say this—For everyone who religiously followed the Marvel Cinematic Universe for … Continue reading My 2 Cents on Spider-Man: Far From Home
SPOILER-FREE REVIEW (although you really should just go see the movie) Unless you've been living in a cave for the past year, you know that Thanos (Josh Brolin, No Country for Old Men, Sicario), the primary antagonist of Marvel Studios's Avengers: Infinity War, collected six Infinity Stones, added them to his Gauntlet, and used a snap … Continue reading My 2 Cents on Avengers: Endgame (SPOILER-FREE)
(SPOILER-FREE: Read on for an insightful overview of the web series if you haven't seen it yet) gen:LOCK from Rooster Teeth is the smartest, most character-driven, most compelling entry in the mecha anime genre, period. I'm happy to see how the indie animation studio Rooster Teeth has matured so much over the past few years … Continue reading My 2 Cents on gen:LOCK
