Avengers Endgame | Movie Review


Title: Avengers: Endgame
Genre: Urban Fantasy
Release Date: April 26th, 2019
Rating: 8.8 out of 10 IMDB

Summary from IMDB: 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.


Review: We've waited so long for this moment! Will it be a disaster or an epic ending to year of an epic movie line?

I do have to say that there were a few things that I didn't like, but for the most part, I was happily satisfied with this ending. Lets get into it, shall we.

The story line for the most part was good. We followed our surviving characters as they try and move on with their lives after the dusting. They lived, but their minds are broken with grief and life is hard. pretty quickly, we find out that there is a chance that they can fix things, bring everyone back. I'm not going to spoil too much, but there is hope.

I loved how we got to go back in time and revisit some of our favorite parts of past avengers movies. Like when Captain America whips everyone's ass in an elevator in Winter Soldier before diving out the glass window and plummeting to the ground. That looked painful. This time, Captain America uses his knowledge of Hydra and tricks everyone. Awesome!

Here are a few things that irked me.

1. Pepper Potts - I don't are what people say, the fact that she showed up in an iron man suite and was super cool in it, was really stupid. The writers have tried to make her relevant throughout the iron man franchise, and it just hasn't worked for me. Nope, not at all.

2. Captain Marvel - She only shows up to move the story forward. She has absolutely no value to the movie at all. She is only there to show up in the nick of time to blow up a ship. I'm 95% sure that the Avengers could have still defeated Thanos without her. Everything leading up to this movie made such a big deal about Captain Marvel and I was disappointing.

3. Captain America showing up at the end of the movie as an old man. Everything I have always known about Steve Rogers was that he really couldn't get old. His body aged way, way, way slower than the rest of us due to what was done to him. So this twist at the end, sucked!!!! I still love him though, he knows it.

These were the 3 major things that I didn't like in Endgame, other than that, I was happy with the results.

What were your thoughts? Let me know in the comments below.

Review: If this isn't fantastic or what? I loved the book and I'm always a little leary about watching the movie after I loved the book, but this one was worth the watch. 
I loved the dystopian zombie world. A bacteria has taken over the minds of those who are infected and they crave human flesh, but the children born with this disease arm mostly alive. They can learn and love, just like any normal child. The only difference is, they still crave flesh.
There are so many twists and turns in the story. It kept me on the edge of my seat. It wasn't really scary like a lot of zombie movies so if you are not a big fan of horror I think you would be safe with the semi freaky movie.

What I'm Reading This Week | #WeeklyMenu Week #255

Its Monday again. Always Monday. We go through the week and them come back to Monday. They day that I have to myself, or wished I had to myself. Really I share it with everyone. Never time to myself. Never a quiet moment away from people. It makes it hard, since I need my quiet time to rewind and reset for the week. I don't get that. All I get is angry. How am I supposed to feel better if I can't have my quiet time?

On the other side of things, I finally sat down to write. It was a nice day. The sun was shining, there was a cool breeze and an open pick-nick table on my lunch break. Perfect weather for a mid day writing session. Got a lot done on my new manuscript. I'm hoping this one will land me an agent, but we shall see.

Guess what I' reading this week? Ok, you probably already know because of the picture. Exit West. It serves two purposes for me. Its on my shortest books I wanted to read list and also takes care of one of my bingo spots, a book about today's is…
