Review – Captain Marvel (2019)

by Armando Vanegas

Captain Marvel is the latest movie in the Marvel Cinematic Universe after the unforgettable events that occurred in Avengers: Infinity War. Since Infinity War left things in a way that made the audience curious about what would happen next, it was interesting to see what they come up with. All things considered, the next movie had to be something notable and memorable to leave the audience wanting more. Being that Captain Marvel was their first solo female superhero movie, I wanted to see what they could do with this material, and see if this would satisfying my appetite until Endgame came out. DC did a good job in creating an entertaining movie with Wonder Woman, which handled similar material of women who are able to be fighters in their own world and struggling to find their place and humanity in ours. While it’s admirable that Marvel finally put a female superhero at the forefront in one of their movies, this is still a “by the numbers” origin story that you’ve seen time and time again. Still, it’s watchable and it will be pleasing for those just wanting a movie that just cuts to the chase to provide a mostly standalone Sci-Fi action adventure movie. Marvel competently made a movie that seemed to hit the mark for a lot of people and that’s cool. It will be most agreeable for those who are either the most casual Marvel fans or the diehards who always rewatch all the movies leading up to their latest chapter.

Review – Captain Marvel (2019)

by Kevin Muller

There is a destructive force coming to the MCU, Marvel Cinematic Universe, and it has to power to destroy everything in its path. No, I’m not talking about Thanos, but the star of this film, Brie Larson. For those of you who don’t know, Larson hasn’t been the easiest person to deal with during the filming and promotion of this film. As the lead in a MCU film, she is using it as a platform to deal with women’s rights and other injustices she wants to talk about. Her foot has already been in her mouth a few times, including her saying that the new super hero film wasn’t made for white men, who are the majority of the critic reviewing population. On top of that, she apparently isn’t meshing well with the other Avengers, which could cause a problem. See, most of these original heroes will start to fade out, with the new ones, like Captain Marvel, stepping up to take the lead for the coming years. It doesn’t look good when your main star has created such controversy before the movie was released. Outside of the controversy, the main reason people want to see this is to get information about the person who will fix what Thanos did at the end of Infinity War.   At the end of that film, Nick Fury was seen contacting her, before disintegrating into nothing, along with half of the world’s population. So, how is this origin story that tells us about the savior to this epic saga?

Review – Glass (2019)

by Armando Vanegas

M. Night Shyamalan is known for doing two things: taking risks and disappointing people with said risks. But more often than not, his hits and his misses can be interesting to vastly varying degrees. Honestly, I don’t know if I would’ve been as interested to see his new movie Glass if I didn’t see such a mixed reaction on it just because of how strong the reaction varied from masterpiece to complete dumpster fire. I even remember seeing one of his previous movies,The Village, having more or less the same kind of reaction and watching that movie is quite a ride. While it’s not a masterpiece, it was still compelling despite knowing the reveal because at least Shyamalan took chances with the material. But Glass has the advantage of being a sort of sequel to Unbreakable, a movie I remember really enjoying. Hopefully, this will mean Bruce Willis is going to decide to give a shit this time around. I wasn’t the biggest fan of Split and it seems like this is going to be a significant part of this sort of Unbreakable sequel, but the trailer looked interesting and the mixed reviews had me intrigued so let’s see.

Review – Glass (2019)

by Kevin Muller

Almost 19 years ago, M. Night Shyamalan, followed up his critical, and hugely successful, The Sixth Sense, with a film called Unbreakable. It divided audiences with its serious approach that it took to the comic book lore. Some thought it was pretentious dribble, while others thought it had such brilliance and approached medium in a unique way. For years, Shyamalan teased a sequel to it, but nothing ever developed. Instead, he produced a decade of films that both flopped and were hated by audiences. No one will be able to imagine mother nature and Mark Wahlberg together without laughing.   Then, in 2017, he gave us a new film called Split. It was about a group of girls being abducted by a mad man with multiple personalities, named Kevin Wendell Crumb, or the Horde, who were trying to escape before it was too late. James McAvoy, brilliantly played the antagonist, and it seemed that Shyamalan remembered how to direct a masterful thriller. Then, the ending happened, and you could hear the collective gasps from everyone as it was revealed that this was the sequel to Unbreakable that we had been waiting for. As Bruce Willis’s character, David Dunn, sat at a diner counter top with the theme song from the original film, he now understood that the city of Philadelphia had to be protected, and he had to take down this new threat. After all these years, was it worth the wait?
