Movie Round Up – The MCU Mini Review

This will be a mini-review simply because everything that needs to be said about both of these films (mainly that they are awesome) has been said better by others but, as a completist, I have to throw in my tuppence worth!

Spiderman: Into the Spider-verse

Teen Miles Morales becomes Spider-Man of his reality, crossing his path with five counterparts from other dimensions to stop a threat for all realities.

Such an exciting film in terms of animation design and story. I loved all the versions of Spiderman that appeared, the dynamic that Miles has with his family and the amazing voice cast. I was sad to have missed it at the cinema where I’m sure it looked amazing, but it’s still pretty cool on our big TV screen 🙂

Avengers: Endgame

After the devastating events of Avengers: Infinity War (2018), the universe is in ruins. With the help of remaining allies, the Avengers assemble once more in order to undo Thanos’ actions and restore order to the universe.

A worthy sequel/part two to Avengers: Infinity War. It’s great to see such a large ensemble cast being handled so well in a film which not only delivered in terms of action but actually had a plot that made sense, at least as much sense as any time travel based plot ever makes sense.
I was sad at the characters that did not make it to the end (not naming them because spoilers, of course), mildly annoyed at a couple who survived but shouldn’t, and really pleased at how funny it managed to be while still dramatic and sad and moving. Yes, I cried both times and yes that means I’ve already seen it twice. Shouts out (shout outs?) to the character design for Thor, the presence of so many excellent female characters, and Karen Gillan’s Nebula in particular. It’s a classic, what else can I say?
