Now that Avengers: Endgame is finally almost here, we are bound to see plenty of pointless articles about the movie in order to draw in readers.
This is one of them. I will do whatever it takes to get more readers.
Whatever it takes.
I do, though, have several important comments and questions about the movie before it finally gets here and dominates the media and the box office.

Zombie movies, television shows and comic books have become extremely popular in recent years, and they seem pretty simple
The main characters are always trying to avoid becoming zombies and they usually end up fighting other humans, too. And while I understand why the main characters don’t want to be killed, eaten or turned into zombies, I think it’s also important to examine the other point of view here.

What would really happen if the Thanos character in the Avengers movie succeeded in his plan to wipe out half of the universe?
If you haven’t seen the movie after all of these months, then I’m betting you won’t care that I am about to talk about spoilers here. If you do care about spoilers, you should stop here and read several of my other posts about important topics such as toasters, toes or every kiss beginning with the letter k.

When I was growing up, I was lucky enough to have a comic book subscription.
I don’t know how or when it started, but each month for several years, the mailman delivered the latest issue of Amazing Spider-Man to my mailbox. It was easily the best mail I received each month and I always looked forward to it. (Full disclosure, it was also the only mail received most months.)

When the biggest movie of the year opened in December, we were lucky enough to get tickets for the Thursday night showing.
And while this review is a little late, I should say that we loved seeing the returning characters mixed with the new stars, we were thrilled by the adventure and special effects, and we became emotional several times. I did think there were a few plot holes, but my love for this movie that has become such an integral part of our pop culture and my family made me able to ignore a few of the problems I had with the story.
But enough about Pitch Perfect 3, I did finally see the new Star Wars movie this weekend and wanted to offer up a few thoughts on this super popular but also somewhat divisive movie. Continue reading “The Last Word on The Last Jedi, a movie that hits all of the high notes” →
The new Star Wars movie finally arrives this week and you can be sure that there will be far too many articles written about the film.
One good example of that is this article I am presenting to you here. Continue reading “Here’s what you can expect from the new Star Wars movie” →
While the “critics” and “most people” don’t like the new Baywatch movie only because it’s not very good, there are still plenty of reasons for you to go see this film this week.
Here are the Top Five Reasons to See The Baywatch Movie Even Though It’s Not Very Good

I recently saw the movies “Arrival” and “Passengers” and thought it would be nice to write thoughtful and in-depth reviews about each of the films in order to explain the symbolism and subtle nuances to those of you who are not as smart as me (like my brothers). Continue reading “Passengers and Arrival reviews and explanations, plus Star Wars!” →
I enjoy going to the movies, but there are several rules that must be followed in order to make the experience enjoyable. I should add that it goes without saying that you should not see scary movies. Ever. Or movies that seem sad. Or movies with Keanu Reeves. Or sad movies with Keanu Reeves (although how could you tell if he was sad or not?).
Here then, are the Top 5 Rules for the Movie Theater.

It can’t be this difficult for DC to make a good movie.
Suicide Squad should have been a slam dunk, but instead it was more like a guy dribbling the ball around with nowhere to go and then kicking it out of bounds. Basically, it was somewhat entertaining, but also kind of stupid and annoying.
Here are a few problems I had with the movie, along with a few spoilers and suggestions:
