Avengers: Endgame (press screening review)

Director;Anthony Russo & Joe Russo
3h 1 minutes
Swedish premiere; April 24th

A masterpiece, flawless like an uncut ice, trimmed to pure perfection with the finest of movie-making talents. The plot, the vision, the storyline, the writing, the acting, the sound, every inch and part and bit was brilliantly made from beginning to end.
Everything you crave, need and want from a hero movie you will get and so much more. Every vein inside of you will chant, your soul will climax, and your heart will make it through a hell of an emotional roller coaster throughout this film.

The Russo brothers delivered this years cinematic experience that is a must see by every single soul walking the face of this Earth. Not a single moment goes to waste and every second was used successfully into creating a movie that will be enjoyed and praised by many. What you’ve been waiting for – you will get and you will love every piece flashing on that big screen in front of you.

The universe was left in ruins after Avengers: Infinity War, one snap and many of our beloved characters gracefully faded away into thin air, now, the remaining Avengers must collide their forces and undo Thanos action and restore what was ruined.

You will be left in awe due to the fantastic visual effects, gasp to the thrilling action that almost lifts you up out of your seat and ears will want to pray to the lord for cover because of the sound. From chock to laughter, to tears, you’ll might even need therapy afterward.
A Marvel creation made to impress even the most cynical. 10/10

Spider-man Homecoming (Bluray review)

Director; Jon Watts
2h 13 minutes
Out on Bluray

An insult to Spider-man fans all around the globe and previous films. Marvel has practically self-sabotaged it for themselves with this film. I’m questioning how on earth no one on the crew said something before releasing it?

I enjoyed the previous Spider-man movies, going way back to when Tobey Maguire played Peter Parker, a student who got bitten by a radioactive spider that completely changed his life. The story itself was something I liked, had fun times watching, and it was a fantastic cinematic experience between the visuals of beautiful New York, skyscrapers, and being part of his everyday life struggle of being a normal kid and a superhero.

Marvel itself had brought us some really good work throughout the years, some better than others but always equally entertaining, heartfelt, with some great CGI that would leave you in a trance of amazing effects and theater experience, sitting on your seat in a total bliss of the beauty that is today’s technology.

Peter Parker played by the new face of Spider-man (Tom Holland) tries to balance a life between school and being an intern for Tony Stark aka Iron Man. When Tony doesn’t see his potential, all frustrated, Peter takes on the street crimes all alone to prove himself as a superhero.

It wasn’t all terrible, Tom Holland makes a quite decent Spider-Man. What actually caught my attention was his innocent and sweet voice, and though his acting is good the plot was just dull and so was the visual, nothing extraordinary.
One role or character that was unnecessary and a complete waste was Michelle, played by Zendaya.
I wonder if they used most of the budget to hire her that it ended up with them not having enough for the actual production and to hire better CGI guys that would do a much better work.
I cannot for the life of me figure out what was the actual point of having her? Maybe it was because of her large following, to attract more people to watch the movie? But if that was the case, they could’ve given her a better role with more meaning.

Don’t waste your time. Stick to re-watching the old Spidey movies and skip this one. 3.1/10

Doctor Strange (Press-Screening 2016 Review)

I’m still stunned by the beauty of Marvel’s latest piece, Doctor Strange. After not even 10 minutes into the movie, I’m pretty sure my soul evacuated from my body and entered the heaven of films, where only the finest of the finest is shown. Because it’s been a while since I’ve been so captured by a ”super hero” movie, I was in awe by the flawless vision, so intensely fascinated by the details, colors, and visual effects.
For the first time ever did I feel blessed to be alive to see this, because usually my heart is complaining about not being part of the late 60’s and mid 70’s. But today, I was in love, in love with this extraordinary evolution of computers, effects, and talented people. It’s insane how far we’ve come.

You tend to have high expectations when it comes to Marvel, but so far haven’t I left the theater disappointed. Guardians of the Galaxy was a shot of love for my soul and being, and same now with Doctor Strange. It was a glamorous, classy, and beautiful script, and movie. It was a blessing for my sight from beginning to end, a fantastic journey I strongly recommend you take the time to embark on.

Doctor Strange (played by the excellent, and phenomenal Benedict Cumberbatch) is an arrogant, yet fantastic neurosurgeon, who one night on his way to a dinner has a car accident that practically makes his career come to an end. He becomes obsessed trying to find any sort of solution to recover as soon as possible. He takes on a journey of soul healing and get’s drawn into the world of mystic arts and forces he never believed were even possible, until now.

I cannot stress this enough, it was perfection at its finest, and such a brilliant cast, strongly recommended. 9/10
And as always, amazing soundtrack, delivering some old but gold tracks throughout the movie.
Humor, heart, and simply a kickass ride for almost 2h. Don’t miss it!
