Avengers Endgame

By now I would imagine most die hards have seen this “final” installment from our favorite superheroes so perhaps it’s safe to say…it’s a bit disappointing. Infinity war was everything you would want Endgame to be – great effects, good story but most of all, full of characters we enjoy. Endgame was drama focused so much on story that you lost the fun we have grown to love and expect from favorite characters. Serious issues to deal with or not, we still expect fun wry playfullness between characters. Where was the wit we love from the franchise builder himself Mr RD Jr.? Thor provided some of it but not enough to sustain. Having said that, it was still a good film and the 3 or so hours went without the need for a break. Less a thin comic book and more a collection of comic books it doesn’t disappoint if you go without preconceived notions! Definitely date night wothy.

Black Panther

black pantherAppropriate it’s part of the Marvel universe as it’s a Marvel.  The opening sequence starts with terrific animation/cgi.  The actors are masterful offering life and culture to this world.  There’s fun play with 007 throughout the film – including the token odd white guy –  and strong women, not just physically!  Well written script I wonder how these characters will mesh with the others in the universe.  The interplay with the characters in Black Panther is a different type of fun, with a sense of importance than those from others in the marvel universe so it will be interesting to see how they plan to mesh them all together for the upcoming film.  Yes to date night!
