Film

What’s another two hours?

Avengers: Endgame

The culmination of 10 years of storytelling on the big screen.

What. A. Ride.

It’s not the perfect movie; far from it. It’s not even my favourite or the best MCU film. But it’s a wonderful piece of craftsmanship to bring together all the films that preceded it into one gigantic finale for Phase 3.

Clearly, some MAJOR spoilers ahead.

Thor: Ragnarok

The hype was real with Thor: Ragnarok. I loved the idea of funny Thor in space with the Hulk bro-ing it up, and given Marvel’s track record, it was bound to be heaps of fun to watch, even if the plot may be a bit thin and the villains poor.

But man, did Thor: Ragnarok surprise me. While the plot and pacing was off, it defied my expectations and can handily call itself one of the most enjoyable Marvel films to date, plus it has an awesome villain.

Star Wars: The Last Jedi – Trailer

Hands down the BEST trailer I’ve watched this year.

I thought the Thor: Ragnarok trailer was great for its fun and hip vibe, and the Spider-Man: Homecoming trailer was great to watch like a mini-film (and the hype over the best on-screen Spider-Man yet; sorry Tobey Maguire!).

But THIS. This is what a trailer should be. Teasing the audience with every scene. Showing us glimpses of the epic saga that’s about to unfold. The visuals are stunning. The lines are well chosen. THE HYPE TRAIN IS CHARGING THROUGH TOWN LIKE A DREAM SEQUENCE IN COBB’S BRAIN, PEOPLE.

I hope they do the ‘start with a panting protagonist’ thing only up to Episode IX though. We had Finn do that for Episode VII, and now Rey for Episode VIII. Maybe just do Poe in Episode IX and that’s it. Don’t need too much of that.
