"I really liked the first two movies but War is an utter failure. It's far too long. Literally everything happens for the convenience of the plot. It's so melodramatic it made me laugh. The last 30-40 minutes are a joke. A dozen Apache helicopters fail to take down a wooden wall? Really? Worst are the awful allegories. The apes are in a concentration camp with whipping and crucifixion as punishment, while Colonel Amon Kurz looks on from above. Really left a bad taste in my mouth. It's boring too."
|95 99%||Avengers: Endgame (2019) - Sep 03, 2021
"I disliked 9 out of the 21 preceding movies and Endgame is still one of my all-time favourite movies. It's Marvel's "Return of the King" but it works better because i'm not familiar with the original material. Endgame is 3 hours long but it never stops being engaging. It manages to make you experience almost every kind of emotion and even makes you care about Tony Stark. I've watched the "portals" scene dozens of times, it's so good. I doubt any superhero movie will ever be remotely as good."
|70 56%||Captain Marvel (2019) - Sep 02, 2021
"I absolutely loathe Superman as a character. He's unbeatable and all the tension comes from his friends being threatened. Captain Marvel is Superman sans the kryptonite but i still really liked this movie. The 90s nostalgia isn't overdone, there's some solid character work and telling an origin story works quite well this way. "
|50 29%||Ant-Man and the Wasp (2018) - Sep 02, 2021
"Ant-Man 2 is more of the same, just not remotely as good. It's not a bad movie but it was definitely the last dud of the Infinity Saga. We've already seen the shrinking-growing before, the bad guy is dull and you kinda get the idea they slapped this together to set up Endgame. Meh."
|90 95%||Avengers: Infinity War (2018) - Sep 02, 2021
"The Avengers, the Guardians and Thanos finally united, with a great score to boot. Avengers 3 is actually better the second time, Thanos is amazing and all the build-up finally pays off. The action is amazing, all the characters work shockingly well together and the finale is so good. If it wasn't for the giant dwarf subplot this might've been a 10."
|90 95%||Spider-Man: Homecoming (2017) - Sep 02, 2021
"I've always liked Spider-Man because he's the most normal superhero. He's just a kid, not a billionaire, alien or whatever. On top of that Marvel finally got an interesting villain - it only took them 16 movies. The sixth 21-century Spider-Man movie may actually be the best one. Almost everything about the movie just "works". It's hilarious, engaging and it has heart."
|70 56%||Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 (2017) - Sep 02, 2021
"Guardians 2 is too long and the main plot just isn't very interesting. But it's still colourful and hilarious and entertaining."
|65 44%||Avengers: Age of Ultron (2015) - Sep 02, 2021
"I loved this movie the first time i saw it but rewatching the entire series it doesn't hold up. The opening scene 100% feels like a set, Ultron is just a crappy Thanos (kill to save) and the whole lead up to his creation is boring. It's still entertaining but i expected more from the guy who made Buffy and Firefly."
|30 10%||The Slumber Party Massacre (1982) - Sep 02, 2021
"Lots of gratuitous nudity, boring filler and disappointing violence. The only redeeming value is the occasional bizarre line here and there. Mostly it's just people looking through curtains."
|60 39%||Colossal (2017) - Sep 02, 2021
"A weird, fun concept that sadly falls flat at the end. It's nearly 2 hours long but the characters barely get any depth. I also felt like i missed a scene that explained why the baddie turns truly evil. They also don't do a whole lot with a bunch of things that are introduced, including the main gimmick. E.g. she can feel what the monster feels but this is never used again. I would only recommend it if you like the premise."
