Ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls, the most anticipated movie of all time is finally here. I’m here to tell you how to survive this 3hr and 2 minute monster of a film.
Sorry to break it to you guys, but there is no intermission during this movie. That means there is no time for bio breaks. Regulate the liquid you consume before the movie and try your best to go before. If you know you won’t survive the long runtime, I recommend downloading the RunPee app. They silently buzz your phone during a movie’s downtime, giving you enough time to escape. The app also provides small summaries for parts you may have missed which saves you from the scramble to keep up when you get back.
Time travel plays a major role in the plot, but I feel like the movie fails to adequately explain it. Marvel time travel works a lot different from regular time travel in the sense that anything the heroes do in the past doesn’t affect their world. Instead it makes an entirely different timeline. I wish I had a better understanding of this during the movie because it hurt my viewing experience a bit.
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.
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.
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.
We finally have a taste of the next Avengers movie after the huge cliffhanger Infinity War left us with. This 2 minute trailer is jam packed with loads of details that might be intimidating at first glance. I hope to make this trailer more digestible for the everyday person with this breakdown.
Tony Stark Stranded on a Spaceship
Suitless and defeated after his battle on Titan with Thanos, Tony Stark aimlessly drifts through space with no way to get home. He states how he ran out of food and oxygen, and as a last hope, makes a log for anyone who is able to retrieve it.
In this shot, we can see that Thanos has hung up his trusty battle armor. He’s completed his goal of killing half the world, and can now live the rest of his life peacefully.
Familiar Faces Return
Heros like Hawkeye and Ant-Man are back, and I have the feeling they are going to play a big part in Avengers 4. If you didn’t know where these guys were during Infinity War, Ant-Man was under house for the crimes he committed in Civil War and Hawkeye decided to hang up his bow to live with his family.
