Captain Marvel

Captain Marvel is Marvel’s latest release and the last movie before the highly anticipated Avengers: Endgame.  Since Captain Marvel played a big role in the end credits of the last Avenger movie, there was no doubt that she would need a proper introduction before April 26th.

Summary

With her memory wiped from a plane crash, Captain Marvel is a Kree warrior who is caught in an intergalactic battle between her people and the Skrulls.  She fails one of her missions and is forced to flee to Earth where she meets Nick Fury, a SHIELD agent who wants to someday make a task force of superheroes to fight evil.  Together they attempt to dig up Captain Marvel’s past and they quickly realize what they’re fighting for isn’t as clear cut as they hoped.

Rating

In all I’d give this movie a frozen rating.  This movie wasn’t the worst, but definitely not the best film Marvel has ever made.  Their are some glaring problems with the plot with the worst offender being Captain Marvel’s reason to unleash her full, Superman-like powers.  One explanation could be the relatively small window of time Marvel had to release this movie because of Captain Marvel’s teased involvement in Endgame.  I hope that the hero can redeem herself in the last Avengers movie.

Good Will Hunting- A Film Classic

My dad introduced me to this Good Will Hunting recently and I have to say I really enjoyed it.  I feel like we always dedicate are attention to mainstream Netflix originals, and although some of them are good they don’t have the same impact on me like the classics.

Summary

Good Will Hunting is about an extremely smart self taught teenager named Will Hunting that always dreamed of becoming a mathematician.  However, his poor background prevents him from going to college, and the furthest he ever gets to his dream is by working as a janitor at MIT.  One day he finally is recognized for his intellect by solving a math problem that none of the students could answer.  Although he reaches his dream, Will quickly realizes the fame is not for him and descends into depression.  It is up to his close friends and therapist Sean Maguire to pull him out.

Good Will Hunting is everything you could want in a movie.  It is funny, sad, and has a good message about life at the same time.  Therefore, I’m giving this movie a fresh rating.  Also Robin William’s performance as Sean Maguire was so good that he won an Oscar.

Prison Break Review

Ok guys I know there are a lot of good shows on Netflix, but I legitimately think I’ve found the hidden gem here.

Summary

Prison Break is basically the story of an unbreakable bond between two brothers.  When the older brother Lincoln gets framed for murdering the Vice President’s brother, he is put on Death Row.  His brother Michael is devastated by the news and decides the only way to break him out is from the inside.  Michael makes an intricate plan before getting arrested that includes tattooing a blueprint of the prison on himself and memorizing the response times of the police.

If you’re currently in the search for a new show on Netflix, I would highly recommend Prison Break.  The first few episodes are a little boring since he has to set everything up, but once you finally see his plan play out it is so satisfying.  I give this show a stale rating.  The first couple seasons of the show are really good, but with every show it feels dragged out after that.
