Man, Woody really has a hard time learning his lesson, doesn’t he? How many times is Woody going to be tempted into settling for a life beyond belonging to his chosen child? And how many times is he going to go back to that child?
At least once more, it seems. Here comes Toy Story 4!
I like the Toy Story films as much as the next person, but it’s OK to let a good thing come to an end at the appropriate time. What’s the driving story this time? That Woody has to be tempted by life in a carnival? Instead of in a museum or in a daycare? What the heck would Woody even do in a carnival?
Not to mention all the weird existential questions that arise from the introduction of Forky. The Toy Story universe doesn’t need any more existential questions!
Oh man, were we expecting a new Avengers: Endgame trailer today?! Here it is, out of nowhere, and it gave me chills! This looks great!
We even get a stinger of Captain Marvel at the end. I think that stinger could have been stronger, but I suppose they don’t want to give too much away…especially if they put this new trailer in front of Captain Marvel for its second weekend.
But what a great trailer! Builds the drama, draws on the past movies, really gathers the heroes into something truly great…and none of the story has been given away! The Avengers group up and try to do something to save the world! I hope it’s going to be great!
Also, on a personal note, Ant-Man remains my favorite movie Avenger. And just seeing Scott Lang suited up and walking alongside the full-on Avengers is pretty fun!
I’m not digging it. The first full Aladdin live action trailer came out yesterday, and I just…I dunno, it seems too busy. Obviously there’s a lot of style and pizzazz and stuff. It all makes sense. But it looks too…I dunno. Tacky? Gaudy? Perhaps it’s just not my style of design aesthetic.
What do you think? The cartoon Aladdin is one of the best. Can this live action one live up to that energy? Also, for the record, I have zero problems with the Will Smith genie. Looks fine to me.
The first Marvel superhero movie with a female lead is here and it’s quite awesome! Let us hope Marvel does not hesitate to make more. Captain Marvel has walked a rocky road in the comics, but it looks like she’ll have a nice, clean, straightforward role in the Marvel Cinematic Universe!
Movie Rating: 8/10 – Very Good.
If I had to rank Captain Marvel, I think I’d put it in the upper middle tier of MCU films. It’s not top tier, like Black Panther or the Avengers films, but it’s damn good. I loved pretty much everything about this film. I look forward to seeing Carol show up in Avengers: Endgame, and I look forward to sequels. Simple as that. I’m a Marvel movie fanboy and I do not apologize for that fact!
Join me after the jump for my full review. Expect FULL SPOILERS for the Captain Marvel movie.
Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse is a true masterpiece and deservedly won that Oscar. So let’s poke some fun at it! Legitimately, at times, thanks to the How It Should Have Ended people!
Some good jokes there! Though if I can be that guy, a webline isn’t retractable, and Doc Ock needed time to repair the collider, which is why they couldn’t re-do the experiment that day. Though I did love the alternate reality Kingpin seeking revenge joke!
Also, if I haven’t made this clear enough, but I very much dislike the cafe tradition. Stop using your jokey versions of Batman and Superman as a crutch! You’re better than that! You’re funnier than that! Your Spider-Man jokes were great this episode!
Although I will admit the Into the Bat-Verse ending was pretty fun.
