    It all leads up to these films, doesn’t it? Every single addition to Marvel’s Cinematic Universe stands to culminate in an epic team-up otherwise known as the Avengers. The problem with this is that there is a lot of build-up involved. Three years have passed since the last Avengers film, that’s about five films so far. There’s a lot of pressure riding on writer/director Joss Whedon to deliver what he did last time that grossed Disney and Marvel over one…

    It’s easy for someone not to think much of the Fast and Furious franchise. While they’re extremely popular, if you don’t usually watch those kinds of films it’s pretty easy to dismiss with other schlock like the Transformers films. I was actually kind of in this ballpark until I decided to marathon films 4, 5 and 6 of the franchise over an entire evening and I have to say, this stuff is good.
