Avengers: Endgame Review

Avengers: Endgame

This is magical. Magical. Amazing. Incredible. This movie is so good that I’m writing a review of it. Have you been to this site lately? I haven’t even paid attention to it in years, it’s just running itself and collecting internet cobwebs, but I’m writing a review of this film to reiterate how incredible it is.

I’m a grown man. I’m almost 40 — Jesus, that’s horrible to write out and made me retch — and I wept during this film. Multiple times. At one point, I was so hysterical that I forced myself to laugh out loud at something, so the people around me wouldn’t think I was dying of hyperventilation.

I’ve never, in my entire life, cried so much at any movie, let alone one that’s an action film. The Notebook? Sure, I cried some. Not as much. When E.T. flew home and left Elliott? Yep, tears. For a minute. And I was 4 or 5 years old. Avengers: Endgame had me balling my eyes out for multiple minutes at a time, multiple times in the film.

Were they happy tears or sad tears? Both. There are some amazing happy moments, but there are some sad moments, too. A lot of the down points aren’t things I was prepared for. To save you from spoilers, I won’t talk about them anymore here. But they’re there. And there’s a lot of them.

I was worried going into the movie that 3 hours would feel long, but it didn’t. I think they used every moment of the full length for a purpose. Every minute felt like it was necessary to fulfill the story and to wrap up what many of us have invested the last 10+ years of our lives — and multiple hundreds of dollars — into.

It’s hard to talk about this film without spoiling anything. It was the first time I can remember leaving a theater and not wanting to talk about it on the way out to the car because I didn’t want to possibly spoil something for anyone waiting in the lobby to go into the theater after us. I know a lot of folks have been joking about not spoiling the film, and you shouldn’t. If you’ve seen it and know others are going to see it soon, don’t ruin it for them. Let them experience the happiness and sadness that you got to enjoy.

There aren’t enough words in the English language that mean the same thing as “amazing”, but here are most of them according to a thesaurus: awesome, fascinating, incredible, marvelous, prodigious, shocking, stunning, surprising, unbelievable, wonderful.

If you’ve invested even a single iota of yourself into following the Marvel Cinematic Universe since Iron Man way back in 2008, do yourself a favor and go see Avengers: Endgame before it gets spoiled for you.




  First Iron Man 2 Suit Shot
Posted by: Mike on May 7th, 2009 Leave a Comment »

Robert Downey Jr. and the rest of the Iron Man folks were out and about filming some scenes in public yesterday.  Someone was lucky enough to catch this shot of Robert Downey Jr. in half the Iron Man costume.  No details as to what the shot is, or what they were filming.  Though the much anticipated Scarlett in tight black leather has not surfaced on the internet, yet.  I give it another few hours.

Here’s the first shot from Iron Man 2 of Downey Jr. in the costume.

  New Sherlock Holmes Stills
Posted by: Mike on May 6th, 2009 Leave a Comment »

USA Today was lucky enough to get 10 new photos from the upcoming Robert Downey Jr. film, Sherlock Holmes.  They were kind enough to put those up on their website for all to see.

I’m pretty stoaked to see the movie.  I’ve been a big fan of Downey’s for the last few years now, and think he’s going to be excellent as Holmes.

And how could you not want to look at Rachel McAdams for two hours?  After catching Wedding Crashers, I was reminded of how gorgeous she is.  So, even if the movie’s terrible, you get that.

Check out the stills over on USA Today’s website, by clicking here.

  Robert Downey, Jr. Didn’t “Get” The Dark Knight
Posted by: Christine on Aug 14th, 2008 1 Comment »

 width=In a recent interview with Moviehole.net, Robert Downey, Jr. talks about his new movie Tropic Thunder, his last hit Iron Man, and the fact that he didn’t “get” The Dark Knight. Read:

My whole thing is that that I saw The Dark Knight. I feel like I’m dumb because I feel like I don’t get how many things that are so smart. It’s like a Ferrari engine of storytelling and script writing and I’m like, ‘That’s not my idea of what I want to see in a movie.’ I loved The Prestige but didn’t understand The Dark Knight. Didn’t get it, still can’t tell you what happened in the movie, what happened to the character and in the end they need him to be a bad guy. I’m like, ‘I get it. This is so high brow and so f–king smart, I clearly need a college education to understand this movie.’ You know what? F-ck DC comics. That’s all I have to say and that’s where I’m really coming from.

You liked The Prestige but didn’t understand The Dark Knight? Did you get The Prestige? Are you sure? TDK, while it may be complex, isn’t nearly as complicated to sort through as The Prestige.

And while we’re on the subject of complicated movies, how about Iron Man? I don’t remember any major plot points – just explosions and awesome flying scenes. Oh, and lots of tech gadgets. Maybe that’s why Robert Downey, Jr. didn’t get The Dark Knight – maybe he thinks superheroes are supposed to be simple.

Go check out Moviehole.net for the whole interview.




  Burger King Made Robert Downey, Jr. Quit Drugs

Robert Downey Jr Burger King StoryI’m not sure if this is good news or bad news for Burger King.

Robert Downey, Jr. claims in a new story that he stopped at Burger King with a carful of drugs and his burger was so horrible that he thought something terrible was going to happen to him. He left the restaurant and dumped all his drugs in the ocean.

The Burger King reference in Iron Man is in reference to his life-changing event.
