    Iron Man 2

    ★★★

    Says a lot, but took now a decade to finally see this sequel. Certainly belongs in the lower tier of the MCU as the plot really felt disjointed and even though it was only two hours, really short for a comic book movie nowadays, still felt so much longer. That said, had a few okay moments yet can't really say anything stood out. 2.75/5

  • Captain America: The First Avenger

    Captain America: The First Avenger

    ★★★½

    Probably only my third time viewing and first in at least 8 years and while it's not great, I did find it to be pretty entertaining and Chris Evans embodies the role so well. Red Skull and the heavy prosthetic they placed on Hugo Weaving still was pretty silly looking, however, making him one of many weak villains in the MCU. 3.25/5

    Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice

    ★★★½

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    Technically speaking, it's a mess of a film however the fanboy in me (so yes I am biased) managed to smile especially during the third act.

    To its detriment, it is a film geared more towards DC fans than the general audience but I think still one can appreciate Ben Affleck as a fantastic Bruce Wayne/Batman, Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman (showing promising signs for her own feature film) and yes, even Jesse Eisenberg thankfully bringing us a different Lex…

    Life on the Line

    I've come to expect this level of quality from Grindstone Entertainment, and unfortunately, John Travolta. This felt like a TV series with (soapy) subplots crammed into a 90-minute running time. Before the end, I found this to be dumb but harmless, however when they tack on showing pictures of those who died in the line of duty (none portrayed in this film that I could tell), I became a tad angry. If they wanted to do a film honoring linemen, fine, then keep it focused on them instead of a poorly written script.
