It's a technically impressive film, boasting some incredible long takes and some great acting but all of that feels so shallow and superficial, ultimately bringing nothing new to say. Sam Mendes manages to become the first man to succesfully perform fellatio on himself, and every arduous minute of this film has that image in the back of my brain like a very annoying migraine. I do not care about your film's technical efficiency if the film has nothing to say.
This reminds me of the thousands of disposable sci-fi movies I used to watch as a kid, it's a perfect "it's 2AM and nothing else is playing on TV" kind of movie, and that is genuinely a compliment. Stewart and Cassel provide weight to their characters and elevate this rather generic screenplay. Some wonderful creature design and inventive kills, but other than that, I doubt I will remember this film at the end of the year.
I love Kevin Smith, yes, that includes Yoga Hosers (which is very high on my list tbh). His daughter, Harley Quinn is a very talented young actress and the Ben Affleck scene was really beautiful. Lots of dad jokes, that's always a W. Honestly woule love to see Kevin Smith direct more serious movies again, I think he is a very capable and empathetic filmmaker.
Avengers: The Search for Purpose
Avengers: Endgame isn't like any other movie. Actually, I would go as far as to say that it isn't a movie at all. It looks like one, it acts like one, and it's a damn good one, but Endgame feels more akin to a climactic sporting event. It's the Superbowl of the MCU, and the fact that it was marketed using highlights from previous films reinforces that thought.
People will come into Endgame expecting finality,…
Made me feel.
Reflect on my life.
Think about mom, dad.
Think about past lovers.
Do I want to have kids?
They'll eventually abandon me.
Need to say sorry, I haven't been a good son.
She is an only child, she would have felt better if she had a sibling.
The one thing I can't live without.
Sometimes I want to die.
But most of the times, I love life.
Love the nature.
Love falling in love.
I want to live.
I am easy to find.
