Avengers: Endgame

Avengers – End Game: The story picks up from where Infinity Wars left off. Arrow’s wife and children vanish as Thanos, who has control of the six Infinity stones, makes 50% of the population of the universe disappear. Antman returns after having somehow time traveled to the present, and that event triggers the reunification of the Avengers to get back the Infinity stones. The film is very entertaining. It has several periods of comic relief (especially Thor, who has a very funny post-Avengers life), numerous scenes that are emotionally powerful, and a lot of action, particularly during the last 30 …

14-year-old orphan Billy is unhappily assigned to another foster home, and he is not happy.

I will start off by saying that overall, the movie was fun, but it also suffers. While Momoa is certainly an impressive-looking superhero above and below the seas, it would have been nice if …

Hugh Jackman plays Logan in the year 2029. Most of the mutants are gone now, and Logan, Professor X, and Caliban are hiding in the desert. All of them are getting sick and losing their abilities to heal themselves. One day, a woman approaches Logan with a request to protect a young girl by taking her to North Dakota. Reluctantly, Logan agrees only at the insistence of Professor X. I did not watch the two other Wolverine films, so I am sure I have lost parts of the backstory; however, it turns out that the film stands on its own. …
