Avengers: Endgame

Trailer


RATED8.6 Plot

After the devastating events of Avengers: Infinity War (2018), the universe is in ruins due to the efforts of the Mad Titan, Thanos. With the help of remaining allies, the Avengers must assemble once more in order to undo Thanos's actions and undo the chaos to the universe, no matter what consequences may be in store, and no matter who they face…

Summary

A very good end to the first phase of Avengers films. A bit slow in places but the action more than makes up for that but like Infinity War includes a very unnecessary "woke" scene. Sad it's all over to be honest.

Ant-Man And The Wasp

2018





Plot

In the aftermath of Captain America: Civil War (2016), Scott Lang grapples with the consequences of his choices as both a superhero and a father. As he struggles to rebalance his home life with his responsibilities as Ant-Man, he's confronted by Hope van Dyne and Dr. Hank Pym with an urgent new mission. Scott must once again put on the suit and learn to fight alongside The Wasp as the team works together to uncover secrets from their past.

Summary

Well I would say this is slighlty better than the first one but not a lot. Neither are bad movies but just feel like backstory to the greater Marvel Universe.

Against seemingly insurmountable obstacles, Pym and Lang must plan and pull off a heist that will save the world.

Summary

Another film that the trailers never impressed me with but as part of the bigger Marvel Universe I felt I had to watch it. Mediocre at best..

The Hobbit : The Battle Of The Five Armies

Trailer


RATED7.4 Plot

Atop the reclaimed Lonely Mountain, Bilbo Baggins and the fellowship of Dwarves witness the mighty winged drake, Smaug, swooping down upon Laketown in a fit of fiery rage, as refugee denizens and Elves converge on Erebor to claim the realm's inestimable treasure. However, as Prince Thorin II Oakenshield rapidly succumbs to the hypnotic allure of the corrupting mounds of gold, friendships shatter over greed, and a war is brewing. And just as all races prepare for battle, dark lord Sauron's evil forces led by the Orc chieftain, Azog, emerge from the dark bowels of the earth, flanking the vast battlefield, in Middle-earth's greatest conflict that will decide everyone's future.

Summary

Well I finally made it to the end of this drawn out saga. It's better than the first two with less "comedy" moments although Legolas appears to be more Spiderman than Elf. The best part was probably the haunting end credit song sung by Billy Boyd.

The Hobbit : The Desolation Of Smaug

2013





Plot

After successfully crossing over (and under) the Misty Mountains, Thorin and Company must seek aid from a powerful stranger before taking on the dangers of Mirkwood Forest–without their Wizard. If they reach the human settlement of Lake-town it will be time for the hobbit Bilbo Baggins to fulfill his contract with the dwarves. The party must complete the journey to Lonely Mountain and burglar Baggins must seek out the Secret Door that will give them access to the hoard of the dragon Smaug. And, where has Gandalf got off to? And what is his secret business to the south?

Summary

It just gets more silly doesn't it? Very little here was in the book, half the characters are new and I thought the goblin escape in the first film was bad until I saw the barrel scene in this one.
